"Meat is the decomposing flesh of an animal that did not want to die." That's what Peta said about Lady Gaga's meat dress, and it has me thinking. I don't need to eat meat. I can survive quite well--maybe even better--without it.
Or can I?
I think being vegetarian is super. Okay, so that sounds a little halfhearted. I think that people who have made a concrete choice not to eat meat, and stand by it (or try their best) are doing something good. I don't think we really need meat nearly as much as we think we do, or as much as we simply enjoy it.
But maybe I'm just another animal who doesn't want to die.
