That hypothetical is just sad. It reminds me of the end of an episode of Intervention when the caption states how the addict relapsed and is back living on the streets as an addict.

I literally could write an essay, but since I don't feel like it, I'll just pose one question to you:
If we lived in a world full of people consuming the flesh of tortured children, would you consider it child abuse to feed your child beans and rice instead?
The mistreatment of animals is highly subjective. Your perception of it is boundless. Even dairy cows are somehow mistreated so you can't drink milk. It never ends.
They could address all of these issues in the industry, and it still wouldn't be enough. Admit it. You would not be satisfied. You'd just shift focus to environmental degradation which is even more prevalent in modern farming practices.
This is a religion to you. You live a miserable, Puritanical existence, looking down your nose at Vegetarians and individuals that consume very minimal amounts of animal products. Rather than minimize your consumption and participate in traditional cultural practices, you wallow in a hollow, fruitless subculture.
You trying to fight these perceived issues through personal consumption or lack thereof is like trying to fix a leaking roof by buying an umbrella. You are wet, cold, and no one wants to come over.
