Well, people are lucky, because they can usually argue their way out of being eaten. I personally eat dumb animals as a majority. I mean, sure, I've heard that human flesh tastes like pork, and that it is, in fact, delicious. But the fact that a person can say "Don't eat me" and a cow couldn't form that thought in it's brain, because it wouldn't understand the reasoning behind the notion, that's reason enough to choose to eat the cow over the person.

Look at it this way: I don't eat primates. I don't eat dolphins. No wait, I take it back. If someone said they tasted good, and it wasn't illegal to eat them, I'd probably give them a try. Heck, if someone served me a slice of human on a plate, I'd at least taste it, provided I didn't ever hang out with the person who was constituting my meal (because it'd be weird to eat someone you were friends with). It's rude not to try out new foods, even if they're made of people.
