Does it make me a bad Jew?

I was always told, the Torah was given to us Jews with the purpose of educating us, how to be better human beings. Lately I’ve been thinking: Judaism also forbids to mix meat and milk, it forbids homosexually and tattooing. So I ask myself, does it make me a bad person if I don’t tend to care about kashrut? Does it make me a bad person if I allow myself pork once in a while? Does it make me a bad person if I get myself a tattoo? Does it make me a bad person if I’m attracted to men? Why isn’t the same case with substances like alcohol, which are widely known to be a lot more harmful then the consumption of pork? Isn’t the purpose of Judaism, or better said religion, teaching us how to be morally correct, rather than forcing us living a preferred way of life? And shouldn’t certain mitzwas and rules be separated from what we should referred to as recommendations?
