LoLo, may I ask you why on earth you think anyone who is compassionate should give an ounce of respect to those who aren’t? Do you respect the views of a rapist, murderer, child abuser and so on? To me killing animals for the taste of flesh and all the abuse before death is on par with the previously mentioned. I have and will never have respect for someone who ‘thinks’ it is ok to harm another creature for mere hedonistic mastication.
It is possible to trick an omnivore, as it’s been done many times. I know my mum always says her dad swore linda mcartney pies were meat. My mum likes mock meats from certain places too, as does my dad. I don’t like living with meat eaters but I have to lump it. My mum just tends to shut off when I go on my rants about animal products. At least some dishes she makes are purely vegan only like her veg curry, which she will eat too.
She also get’s excited about going to VeggieWorld because she loves their mock meats.
That is exactly what I’m talking about, it’s “ok” to “trick” someone into eating food that they don’t want because you think it’s better, yet it’s completely different if they did the same to you. Would you like it? No. No one can force someone to accept someone else’s lifestyle if they have already said that they don’t want to, period.
