A reblog of my article from the Pagan Activist Blog.
Tipping the hat is a good sign because it shows that we really do have an innate respect for other animals and do want to live peacefully with them. There’s a reason we hide what goes on in factory farms and slaughterhouses, and a reason the industry wants to make undercover recordings illegal. People often don’t want to know, but more than that, the industry certainly doesn’t want you to know. It doesn’t want you to have a chance to make an informed decision, or to even think about it at all.
