dcsm-hero asked: That's not a fair assumption. Not all dairy farms/chicken farms are cruel to animals. Depending on where one gets milk and eggs should be taken into account when saying its harmful to animals for someone to be a lacto-ovo vegetarian.
Right, if you get 100% of your dairy from family farms or small farms that you know are not cruel at all or you have your own chickens and chows then sure, dairy can be cruelty free. But as I said, that is the minority case, as the availability dwindles so does the amount of vegetarians who actually consume that way.
