Not entirely, when asked whether I'm vegetarian I tend to say no but I'm still well aware of the reasons behind vegetarianism and that it would probably be best to be a vegetarian, and I was vegetarian for a little while.
The problem is we are all human and it is in our nature to eat meat, in fact I could not get over the fact that it felt out of my nature not to eat meat so I stopped the process and carried on.
Eating meat is part of our diet, it is who we are, it is not unnatural to kill another beautiful creature in order to survive, but what is unnatural and sort of inhumane is that we kill and then eat another creature for enjoyment.
I'm not just talking about those terrible hunters who kill our rhino's or who go hunting deers with their guns, which does make me not want to be a human being, I'm talking about all of us.
Yes, we are all deer killers, in our own context.
Myself included, who hasn't eaten Springbok biltong for the taste of it.
And I'm not judging anyone I know just as well as anyone how difficult it is to give in to our desires to consume.
