My brother Dan and I had been talking about for this for a while now, but this video was the absolute tipping point.
I am no longer eating pork.
I just can’t do it anymore.
While I really like how pork, ham and bacon taste, that’s no longer suitable justification for me to be participating in their consumption.
These are highly intelligent, thoughtful little beings, with strong bonds to each other and other creatures. I am letting go of bacon, ham, and even my beloved tonkotsu ramen. This is a personal conscientious choice that I am making.
Come along with me if you like – or don’t – that’s not what this is about.
