(I'm really curious about this; I wonder if the main argument against "flesh" eating is that you must kill an animal to get it. If you didn't need to kill an animal, would it be okay for vegetarians?

|"To push the ethical bounds just a bit; if the objection to eating meat, eggs, dairy is the need to kill or exploit another conscious being capable of feeling pain or realizing its situation, what about eating cultured flesh from a being capable of giving its flesh in a non-exploitative manner, AND capable of giving its unequivocal, conscious consent? Namely, cultured meat from humans? Next: how about cultured meat which you yourself have donated the DNA? How could anyone (at least from a libertarian perspective) ethically object to you eating meat you've grown from yourself?
One more twist: how long before famous chefs along with geneticists create totally synthetic tissue cultures with totally original flavors not tied to traditional animal tastes? Or combine faunal muscle tissue DNA with fungal, bacterial or algae combos, either directly or in symbiotic communities (like lichen)?
