While I applaud your ideal, I don't think comparing eating meat to rape is a fair comparison. The difference is that molesting or raping a person does not produce any kind of end product that someone can actually use or consume without knowing where it came from or what was used to make it.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. My position is that the origin of the "end product" - the animal's flesh, milk, or eggs - is irrelevant because the use of animals for food is inherently inhumane unless necessary for survival. My goal is for people to not "use" animals at all.

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that there is no such thing as a total removal from the world's evils for any kind of material survival or privilege, unless you want to isolate yourself from humanity and provide 100% of all your needs and wants personally.

That's absolutely true, and total isolation from humanity, even if possible, would not prevent causing some harm to other sentient beings either. However, I strongly believe that it is entirely possible for the vast majority of humans to live very well without consuming animal products, and the breeding of domestic animals for consumption is responsible for the overwhelming majority of their suffering and death. Most other uses of animals are byproducts of raising and slaughtering them for food.
