Yeah, it always kind of gets me when people freak out eating eggs on ethical grounds based on "eating chicks" or such. I mean, maybe you don't support factory farming or keeping chickens, or consuming animal products of ANY kind, or whatever else - and that's fine - but grocery store eggs are not Balut.

Seems like that basically depends on where your opinion of "when does an embryo become a human?" already lies.
If you'd somehow learned to expect logical consistency from human beings, perhaps. My partner has chimed in on this, declaring that What we do in the Shadows cuts to the heart of the matter - when you bite into a sandwich, it's nice to know that nothing has fucked it first.
