Alli, Life lesson #253 - Do not say something about yourself that is negative if you can not handle those around you agreeing with you.
I know, it sounds simple but sometimes it is hard. If you say, 'gosh I look fat in this dress' you can not be hurt when one of your friends says 'you are right'.

I honestly do not think anyone wants you to feel badly about your beliefs. They just want you to base your beliefs on facts. Real life facts. If you are willing to still believe what you believe (slaughter being bad) after you have real life facts then fine.
Another point is - just because you believe something does not mean it is fair to insist the world change to be how you want it to be.
It is fine that you do not want to eat meat. But the rest of us like meat. Eating meat requires slaughter. As long as slaughter is done as humanely as possible why look down your nose and force your beliefs on the rest of us? We do not require you to eat meat you should try to make it so we can not.
