To be fair, the argue for eating gelatin:

“I actually kind of like it. None of the animal is wasted.”


“…as disgusting as this looks here, eating gelatin thankfully is very unlikely to drive demand for animal agriculture since it is a byproduct from bone waste, and demand isn’t determined by gelatin demand, but rather by meat demand.”


“There is a gelatine factory in the area where my band practice unit is. It must have a 1km smell radius of the most putrid odour you could imagine. You can drive past it and if you’re unlucky enough you might see a pile of various carcasses up to the roof.”
