In the last paragraph, is the critic asking me to believe that the ethics of meat consumption are somehow more important to me than policy in Palestine? Really?

Why does that seem surprising? The vast majority of people will perceive that policy in Palestine neither directly affects them nor can be directly affected by them, while the ethics of meat consumption affects everyone who eats meat and everyone who chooses not to eat meat for ethical reasons.


So animal rights are honestly more important to you than human ones? Seriously?


I didn't say they were, or which side of either issue I come down on; those aren't really germane to the point of my comment.
