This is the flakiest argument for not eating meat (as it relates to animal rights) that I've seen in awhile.

As this young lady (woman?) says over here, apparently it's impossible in the minds of a lot of people to continue to eat meat while at the same time being actively concerned about animal rights.

I dunno. I know plenty of people who are very much against the use of animals in animal testing, against the way chickens and pigs and cows are kept, against animal cruelty for our amusement and so forth. And a lot of these people eat meat.
Apparently this is *horribly* hypcritical of them.

I think most of them are against the METHODS used on these farms, not the fact that animals are slaughtered for our consumption.
I dunno. These aren't my fully formed ideas on the topic, I see these points of view too and I'm not really sure what the real answer is.
But... well... if you're an animal rights activist, shouldn't your focus be the immediate problems and not what your fellow activists are eating? I would be more worried about the whole eco-terrorist sorts than I would about my fellow protestor enjoying hotdogs.
