There's nothing morally questionable about eating animals––a good portion of the animal kingdom would die if they didn't eat animals. Eating factory-raised animals is pretty morally questionable as in man cases the animals are basically tortured. If you look at the issue from the perspective of overall environmental health then yeah definitely it's morally questionable, maybe even morally unacceptable.
I still eat meat tho
I have an academic interest in market design, and the term for this is "repugnant transaction". From a purely economic standpoint, such transactions are welfare improving. Site is willing to sell at price x, agent a is willing to buy at price x, agent b is willing to buy at price y. In the end everybody gains some welfare, this is obvious through revealed preference.
The caveat is that some folks find some transactions repugnant or morally objectionable, even if nobody is harmed. Classic examples are people buying horse meat or dog meat for consumption. Another is selling a kidney for money. Both parties are willing and benefit from the transaction, but somebody else may find it morally questionable.
These examples make no sense if you are in China.
Even Spoo quit writing descriptions a while back.
