    Charred octopus is really tasty, it brings out more flavor and helps with the rubbery texture. As far as sentience, I have no qualms with eating one until I can have a conversation with one, but I am happy when people err on the side of empathy in their food choices.

    So, if you don't feel a personal connection through conversation or something interpersonal, you cannot factor in the others' experience?

    On this we can agree Mole, for I am a huge fan of the calamari being of hellenic origin, although I will say, Vas has made me think twice about it.

When people start trying to factor in intelligence and personality, it is just skewing the topic and extremely odd rationalization.
    It might not be logically rational, but it doesn't have to be because it's an emotional reasoning, and in this context that's ok. It's a personal decision (meaning, for one individual within themsevles) they're making.

    For some, it simply makes them feel poor or guilty to eat something that they regard as "higher" or more intelligent. It's usually equated with higher value and a higher likelyhood of self-awareness on par with humans. If they feel a connection in some sort to it it's going to disuade them. It's not rational, but it doesn't need to be.

    Found a good discussion on the 'selective' thing.

    A recent study suggests that an animal’s perceived intelligence is the main factor in determining whether or not we will be disgusted by the thought of eating it.

    The key word here, though, is “perceived”.

    According to this study, people tend to ascribe lower levels of mental functioning to animals that they are about to eat.

    So do we eat tuna because tuna aren’t very intelligent, or do we tell ourselves that tuna aren’t very intelligent so that we can eat them?
    Pigs aren't smart, if we define smartness by e.g. "lack of propensity to roll around in mud." There, done. They're now okay to eat. Sweet, juicy justification.

    If you're going to go that far, what needs to be rational? We can just make emotional choices (reasonings?) based on preferences. However, I have a feeling this is when people start to say, "O no. You can't make emotional choices here. Only there." The point I was trying to make is it's really not a personal choice if you factor in another sentient being is involved. So, one person is making a choice that effects another sentient being.

    I don't agree with the theory that intelligence that mimics a human's is a factor. However, for people who think like that, scientists say pigs are as intelligent as 5 year old children.

    But I like your comment. It proves my point.
