Not About Factory Farms - Clarification

My "kitten" post wasn't really a dig at vegetarianism. I'm a functional vegetarian. I've probably eaten less meat in the whole of last month than Chris ate in a single day. Still, I've cut the heads off of chickens in my backyard. I know what it means to take life to enjoy good food. My post was more of an attack on you guys acknowledging that kittens being swung around by their tails onscreen is felt to be more horrendous than human males having their scrotums removed with a butter knife. There's something strange about being upset by any depictions of animal cruelty while at the same time imbibing an abundance of images of humans being subjected to terrible cruelty. I'm just saying.
