The way I see it, animals aren't any different from humans. They develop communication skills, create relationships, and most of all, experience many of the same feelings as humans. Torturing and killing an animal in order to eat, when we as humans can easily survive off of a vegetable-based diet, makes no sense. And aside from that, how can you look at a cute baby cow and say to yourself, "Damn that looks delicious."
A majority of the arguments made against vegetarianism are uneducated and extremely bias (and I say this, with a hint of bias myself, as I have only heard reasons from uneducated, close-minded people).
And so, with a little rant, I'll tell you, in my opinion (while also respecting yours) why being a vegetarian is always the better choice.
