That is actually the best argument I have seen. Why can't all vegeterians just come out and say "I'm picky, I don't like the taste of meat" instead of glossing over their personal opinion with some grand morality or attempts of seeming superior to omnivores.
I eat it because it's delicious. The rest is just white noise.
Saying you don't like something you haven't even tasted it is perhaps the definition of pickiness, and stating religious reasons is just convoluting the truth or straight up excuses.
I doubt I'll like cats, dogs or insects if I ever try it. Not because my lack of religion, it's because I'm picky (effect) due to social-psychological factors (cause).
(I came out of the closet as a picky eater ages ago.) :)
I've heard that dog is a pretty tasty meal. Reminds me of a trip to a market in Kohima, capital of Nagaland(a state in N.E India), and the dogs in sacks with just their heads outside the sack.
Very good point and critizism taken.
However, it seems the basic argument is "I don't like meat, therefore I'm a vegetarian". That's an OK argument, noone should be forced to eat things they don't like. The underlying reason people don't like meat are numerous, but I haven't seen any good ones apart from actually stating you just don't like the taste (full stop).
The statement "I don't like meat because animals are killed" implies you might like the taste, but refuse it because of something I find to be a fairly weak argument (vegeterians kill plants!). Similarly, a statement such as "I don't like the taste of meat because animals are killed" is just silly as I don't see the causal effect of ideology and tastebuds.
Hopefully I managed to clarify myself a bit. :)
By that definition, avoiding eating human flesh is also just being picky.
