when you said 'meat'....did you mean chicken ? I can't remember your ever having said that you eat meat...just fish and occasionally, chicken.
Chicken is meat - white meat, granted, but meat. Whether it's beef, pork, poultry, fish - something's being killed for us to eat. Don't mean to quibble, but I think that's one of the basic points Dirk's making. Don't get all sentimental about cruelty toward certain living things and then turn around and eat others. If you're looking at it strictly from a health point of view (again, as Dirk said he does) then you can eat some and not others. But if you're against the cruelty, you shouldn't be eating any of them.
