The carnist claims moral superiority over other carnists by not doing immoral things too much. That title is an actual quote by the way.
I'm very glad that you decided that you should only steal a little, rape a little, kill a little. Baby steps I guess. Also, I'm very glad that you're trying to try. Can't promise to try, but I'm trying to try... sometimes.
Can I call it for what is? "I don't eat too much meat" is code for "I want to feel good myself but make no ethical choices".
