But hey look at it this way, we're like pioneers!
I went vegetarian about 15 years ago and in that time there has been a crazy amount of progress and the amount of vegetarian/vegan options at stores and restaurants has exploded. There used to be maybe one kind of veggie burger and some tofu dogs in the frozen section of my local grocery store and now it seems like every store I go to has a special vegetarian section. People in general also seem much more open to the idea of vegetarianism and it doesn't make you "weird" anymore. While it would have been great to be born in a world that's already vegan it has been very exciting seeing all this progress happen.
I hope that by the time I'm old there will be even more huge changes and factory farming will be a thing of the past.
