Watch This Adorable Little Boy Give His Mom a Lesson She'll Never Forget

If you haven't seen this video yet, stop everything you're doing and watch this little boy explain why he believes eating animals is wrong.  


"These animals ... you gotta take care of them ... and not eat them," he passionately tells his mother. As a person who announced to her parents that she wanted to be vegetarian at the age of 6, I feel what this adorable little boy is saying. It's totally fine that others want to eat meat, but for some kids (and grown-ups too) eating animals feels contrived and it's nice to see a compassionate mother allowing her child to make that decision for himself.  

Do you think children should be allowed to decide if they want to be be vegetarian? Share your thoughts with me on Twitter: @feministabulous
