Possibly, when you say no charity could I use it for an anti-vivisection campaign that I'd be organizing? Also could I chose the meat dish I eat? At the same though the principle of the matter is rather upsetting, compromising my values to get a head in life, or could it be seen as the greater good?
I'm not desperate. If $1000 meant more to me than it does now, like if my cat needed a $1000 surgery and the only way I could get the money was to eat part of an already dead cow then I would consider it. But a situation like that is so improbable that it's moot.
Likewise, I would probably eat meat for free if the choice were eat meat or die. But again, that situation is unlikely.
Vegansaraw - you could use it to invest in a vegan business.
I'm sure there are some vegetarians and even vegans who would eat meat for money. There was a vegetarian poker player who was offered $10k to eat a hamburger. He ate it.
But then the real issue wouldnt be so much what that says about their ethics; it's more a question of who would pay veg*ns to eat meat and why? What does that say about those people?
Either way, it's so rare that it's not worth worrying about.
In the choice of eat meat or die I would probably eat meat, some people may say they won't but in the moment of survival we do have instincts to live. But as Elaine said its such a slim to none circumstance its not worth worrying about. More a philosophical life question. Edit: Oh and btw if the only "food" you have is meat and you eat it, you will die faster than if you were to starve to death. I always found that a good comeback when an omni starts up about that.
