Eating Bivalves

A friend of mine wrote this about eating bivalves a number of years ago. I never liked any seafood ever, so I have no urge to eat bivalves, but I find the argument as laid out there compelling. This reaction is very informative:
May 2016: I have now been banned from every local vegan group because of this article. I have received messages of abuse and insults and some vegans have spread ridiculous rumours about me. Charming! I find this kind of behaviour damaging to animal advocacy. It is exclusive, dogmatic and close-minded when in fact an inclusive, pragmatic and friendly approach should be employed.
