...you insensitive Americans.
Seriously, I used to prefer it rare and with pepper. And still today, when one of those mobile sausage grills is near it's mouthwatering for me.
However, when I found out I was not that dependent on eating meat as I thought for the first three decades of my life I would be, I just stopped. I feel for the creatures and don't want them to be slaughtered for a tasty meal, so I enjoy tasty meals without meat.
BTW this episode of Twilight Zone (or a similar 90s mystery tv show) comes to my mind. Humans had discovered a planet with easy to kill animals living on it and so they started a massacer for fun - until the parents came. Turned out the planet was kind of a cradle for this species. From tough heartless hunters to whining little boys. Farewell mankind!
