"The real advantage, though, is that eating less meat opens up conversations about food choices with meat-eaters, while vegetarianism often shuts them down."
The preceding statement really bothers me. What a way to generalize! I am vegan for ethical reasons; I don't consume animals or animal products because I oppose harming and killing animals. If people can't deal with this reason that's not my problem. I don't push my beliefs on anyone and rarely bring u my veganism, but I candidly answer why I'm vegan. I'm very open to dialogue, but I refuse to sugar-coat why I'm vegan.
Frankly this article reads like a way to assuage former vegetarian guilt. I respect your path and your choices, but so much of what you wrote seems like a protracted way to make yourself feel better. Maybe my bias is showing here. I hope that's not the case.
