Hmm, the only meat I typically like eating is birds and seafood. I can eat cow and pig but i've just been nauseated by eating them this past year so i tend to stay away from them and avoid eating it at all cost.

I eat everything

Okay not really but I draw the line at cannibalism. And maybe bugs. I'm kind of afraid of bugs so I don't really want to eat them.

Pretty much anything but cats and dogs. And cannibalism. Other then that I love trying lots of new meats. I'm a huge lover of seafood cause I grew up on the coast. Love rabbit and deer.

personally, i see no line on the matters of animals
people make a big deal about eating dogs,cats,horses etc because we have raised them as companions. But in reality they are just like any other animal, they can be eaten. No animal is off the list for me as long as it's respected and not wasted after it's death. No matter what animal that you are eating, it's a life you are taking for your meal.

On terms with people, it's very dependent on only two scenarios for me.
one: if you're stranded somewhere and you have no other food source and their's corpses around, go for it. In terms of survival when there are no other options you can't let morality get in your way or else you face death. I'd still apply that respect for the prey thing too on here. It may be a corpse but it was once a human.
two: if your curious about the test and you have access to stem cell/lab-grown meat, go for it. There's no harm in eating something that was grown in a little dish regardless of what type of meat it is. All you need is a willing donor and I'm sure the people that want to try it in a matter like that wouldn't mind covering that.

I'm really only comfortable with chicken and beef.
I was vegetarian for health reasons, but went back to eating chicken and a little beef after.
I can't bring myself to eat pork. After owning a pet pig, I just can't do it.

I generally say that if the animal eats meat, I don't eat the animal. I eat chicken, pork, and beef fine, and some fish. I've also had bison and deer before. And even though I've had a pet rabbit and I love them, I wouldn't be against eating rabbit. But carnivores like cats and dogs are where I draw the line.

I’ve cut meat way back for both ethical reasons (horrible treatment for factory farmed animals) and because it’s expensive. The type of animal doesn’t really bother me, so long as it was humanly processed (and not endangered). We mostly eat venison (deer) hunted on our own property. 50 yards from field to freezer! Local eating is important to me as well 😊

I'm a vegetarian and have been for most of my life I think. I don't judge people for eating meat, though, it's just that personally eating something that was born/hatched and breathed and thought and had a life isn't something I could stomach (hah).

I'm not an overly sensitive person, and I wouldn't say that I act like a vegetarian attitude-wise. I often forget I'm even a vegetarian, like I'll just know I don't eat meat as if it's an allergy, but I don't always think of myself as identifying as vegetarian even though I am? I don't know.

I do feed fish and worms to my snake, however. That is sad to watch, but I just tell myself that I love my snake more than I do his prey.

Anyway, if I did eat meat, I would draw the line at dogs and cats and other carnivores etc. It seems even more wrong to me to eat the meat of something that also ate meat. Also ducks and geese are adorable and I wouldn't want to eat them.

Hypothetically, I draw the line at primates, endangered species, and (potentially) sapient species. Preferably I wouldn't eat anything treated inhumanely.

Realistically and monetarily I draw the line at what I can't afford.

Imo I only eat prey animals. I don't think it's right to eat animals like dogs or cats because they're apex predators, so they are rarely eaten by other animals in the wild. I wouldn't mind eating insects lol
