The illusion that by transcending and defying existing social stereotypes we form freely our opinions and attitudes prevents us from questioning multidimensional phenomena. This article addresses the morality of such a social behavior. In this paper I will discuss two arguments in favor of creophage, the first assuming its 'naturalness' and the second evoking our species' superiority, I will conclude with the view that we ought to be morally concerned about the interests of farmed animals, and that widespread animal suffering should be criticized and rejected as unethical.
