Yeah, but it can't be just "random dead person" meat. For the ethical parallel to be exact, it has to be a person who was murdered in cold blood for the sole purpose of being eaten by you. So, if you stick to your guns, you've just said you will be the cause of the murder of an innocent person "for the right price."

As for bugs, presumably she doesn't consider them people. That's no more inconsistent than not considering bacteria or fruit people... you have to draw the line somewhere.

Re: Oh, easily.

hmmm... Perhaps. I don't remember it if was a live fish or not. The bug was definitely living.

Re: Oh, easily.

It doesn't matter, ethically. She doesn't have to kill the fish herself, she merely has to be the cause of its murder, which she refuses to be.

Re: Oh, easily.

ah ok... and yet she has no qualms about bugs... ok, I don't know that I buy the argument really, but I will at least acknowledge its consistency.
