    Hi!
    So I have been vegeterian for 5 months now with the goal if being vegan.
    The thing is that I don't think i can yet achieve veganism at this point of my life yet, thus I feel bad for consuming dairy products.

    I surely feel better as an anarchist not eating meat as it was hypocritical for me to be eating meat, but for me it's just as hypocritical consuming dairy products.

    What's your opinion?

    My opinion is that it is hypocritical to be a vegetarian for ethical reasons, because the dairy industry is arguably worse than the meat industry in terms of long-term animal abuse and exploitation.
    Of course, if it truly is impossible for you to cut out dairy at this time, it's understandable- and since you seem to really care a lot about this issue, I can only assume you're trying your best. Just know that vegetarianism is not an effective boycott of the animal ag industry, as you're still feeding into the same exploitative industry for your animal byproducts.

    I'm a vegan myself, but I was a vegetarian for many years. I think it's good to do as much as you can in a given moment - and although vegetarianism is hypocritical from an animal liberation standpoint, it contributes a bit to alleviate the environmental disaster. I think it's ok as long as you aim to become a vegan as soon as circumstances align.

    It took me a long, long time to become vegetarian and then a long time to become vegan. As long as you're doing something positive and moving in the right direction, it's all good. Not everyone moves at and changes at the same pace and there's nothing wrong with that.
