I agree with your argument about hypocrisy but I reverse it : I eat it therefore I have no standing for opposing it.
Well the absolute bottom line is that our survival as a species will require us to eat significantly less meat. Whether grown on a nice rolling pasture or in a cell block, it is simply too inefficient to eat at the levels which we (at least in the US!) are accustomed.
