I therefore, has bobblehead has pointed out, am a hypocrite because I pick and choose what animals to eat based on their diet and intelligence
Not at all what i pointed out.
In fact if you had been doing something so logical, as opposed to your knee-jerk, culturally conditioned emotional responses, i'd have no argument.
Pigs are smarter and dirtier than dogs, for example.
Your overboard emotional attachment to dogs is LOL-worthy...
Oh and veganism, even more LOL!!!
Vegan couple goes to prison for killing their child via vegan diet:
Veganism makes you dumb!
...and conversely, meat made us smarter!
Don't eat pork neither....
However, I am 100% on board with you on the vegan thing
You're missing out, bacon is awesome!
