All one needs to do is consider switching the context of goats to humans. How would you feel taking the milk from a human being and converting it to cheese and then talk about how silky smooth it is? And taking the mother's milk and putting it into an artificial device and talking about how eagerly the kids drink it? It seems awfully strange. As someone who used to love dairy, I understand how our desires for it can cloud our judgment. The judgment of what is right and wrong here is very clear if you take your desires out of the equation. If you did not want goat's milk cheese, then this whole arrangement would appear to be VERY strange.
Speaking on behalf of the goats means that they should be free from ALL exploitation, meaning they would not be born only to be bred to produce milk or sold to someone who would eventually exploit and kill them. This is the truth of the matter. And if we consumers cannot handle the truth, then we need not be consuming it. Right? If someone who loves to eat goat's milk cheese gets angry at non-consumers for telling the truth, whose fault is that?
