I'm good with this. I'm a vegetarian by choice, but cook meat for my family. It's vile to me, for precisely the reason I became vegetarian, but I accept their choice, and love them enough to want them to eat healthfully.
I would buy ethical meat if I could do so - it is hard to find and unaffordable over here. I love the idea that all parts of the animal are used, and if someone is willing to eat something you aren't, that leaves more of the good stuff for you.

I found the concept of food as 'othering' at school interesting- I hadn't thought about that before, and reading the current Ms. Marvel comic, they actually show that very experience for Kamala.

Man, you can't tell me what my palette tells me is "gross". I've never had liver or tripe that I enjoyed. There's something about the texture and flavor that just isn't enjoyable.

I will eat some hog's head cheese and cracklins amd chitlins, though.

Next thing you know, I'll be "transphobic" for not being attracted to women with penises.

This.  I've tried a lot of things, but I have my limits.  I will continue to find things "weird" but that doesn't mean I'm judging people cor eating them, it just means I won't eat them.

While I dislike guy fieri, he put it best in my opinion.  Don't remember the exact phrasing it went something like this "if it does any work for the animal outside of moving it from point a to point b, I'm not interested."

If I'm with people who order those things, I don't judge, I don't tell them they're weird, I just don't try it if offered.

Among humans, faces are particularly important. We use them to identify one another and to communicate. For many, the face is synonymous with the self. Language reflects this: we "put a face" on tragedies in order to empathize with their victims. Faces are gateways to empathy and humanization.

People who eat faces are defective monsters.

The racism and classism are not accidental. According to Scientific America, this division between muscle meat and offal goes back to the days of slavery:

Ahhhh, the ole "if you don't like offal then you are a racist" trick. Oldest trick in the book and true because absolutely nobody dislikes the taste of it.

Texture is the one thing that really squiffs me out (bladder, pig feet), although liver definitely is the whole package with its odd flavor. I make a mean gravy with chicken livers, but my dad's horrible beef liver when I was a kid put me off that garbage forever.

Floured and panfried calves liver topped with fried bacon and onions, served with a side of sour cream is awesome.  I don't want it often, but always enjoy it.

My favorite "weird" food was/is a peanut butter and dill pickle sandwich.  All the kids in the lunch room would go EWWWW.

If meat wasn't supposed to be in Styrofoam why does God put it there at the store and drive thru?

Actually, I agree with Claire completely. Now the pieces of meat that used to be practically given away, for instance beef tongue, are priced beyond other "normal" cuts.

I did see a TV program where a chef removed a "pigs face" and did something with it; probably one of Andrew Zimmern's shows. I remember I that it seemed like a lot of work for the end result.

Last year I bought a piglet's head, boiled it and then smoked it until it had a nice caramel crispy skin, and took it to an after dove hunt party, where it became an object of ridicule and a "funny" centerpiece. No one ate any of it. Wasting food is sinful. Of course, a lot of those people, even the hunters, didn't eat the doves they had shot.

My grandparents would purchase a whole hog head, cook it outdoors in a huge kettle over an open fire behind an outbuilding, cut off all of the meat and make what they just called "sack sausage" because it would be stuffed into 2" diameter muslin tube-shaped sacks that Gram had sewn together, then put in the freezer.

Man that stuff was delicious sliced and fried and served with a fried egg and some toast. I wish I had the recipe.

It's a gold mine for bloggers. Write something controversial, then when people respond negatively, write another post about that, which will lead to more controversy, which leads to more articles. You can get more content out of one controversial blog post than Disney can get out of a single children's book.

Peanut butter and cheese is good. Any time somebody says that it's weird, I ask them if they have ever eaten any of these.

no, you'll be transphobic for defensively talking about your sexual preferences in a discussion about meat. why? it has nothing to do with anything

The cheeks are the most tender, rich, delicious part of pretty much any animal you can name that has them.  That includes fish.

I'm not telling anyone they have to eat offal, because the flavors can be strong and not everyone has the palate to enjoy liver or tripe.  I've eaten basically everything, and there are some organs and preps I love, and some I have no interest in trying again.

But seriously y'all.... if you've never eaten a pig head with the skin all scored and crispy and crackling, you're REALLY missing out. It's farking amazing.  Next time you're at a pig roast, grab that shiat and try a piece.  You'll never go back.

And when you're done with it, you can use what's left to make sisig for breakfast, one of the best dishes ever created on planet earth.

If no one ate your piglet face, you need new friends! I'm not a fan of the ears or eyes, (ears make great pork stock though) but the checks, tongue and brain on toast? Sign me up!

My feeling is if you are going to kill an animal for meat, you do your damnest to eat and use all the whole animal.

/sack sausage sounds awesome, like a homemade scrapple

Liver is best enjoyed as a pate. Some simmered liver, some extra fat, herbs, salt, maybe a little booze... Whip it all together until it's smooth, and eat it on toast. Delicious.
Plain liver cooked as a slab I can only stand once in a while.

That's too bad. Dove is one of the tastiest game birds out there. Dark red meat with a rich flavor.

The only thing I'll shoot without eating is starlings. They're invasive.

It was the norm for long time to expect people who are not straight to keep quiet about their sexual preferences in everyday conversations and situations. They were expected to "keep it in the closet." It was rare to see them portrayed in TV or movies. It's been changing for the better.

If anybody here is biggotted, it would be somebody who tells people to keep their sexual preferences to themselves.

That was my initial reaction, but what she ended up writing in response had some interesting information in it after the initial paragraph or two of silly complaining about inevitable features of youtube comments sections.

Not necessarily new information, but it's probably new to someone and since what that someone is missing is a really big blind spot where they're just accepting "traditions" without understanding the kinda... politically and morally important reasons behind those traditions it's more of a genuinely informative op-ed than I'd normally expect from Lifehacker.

// Actually one thing in TFA did make me wince, but it wasn't anything to do with her opinion, it was that she used "illicit" when she meant "elicit" and those two are very, very different things.

i can't tell if you are serious or not, but at the risk of looking the fool i'll answer you as if you are.

i didn't tell this person to keep their sexual preferences to themselves. in a discussion about meat, they insinuated that their eating habits can somehow be compared to them being labeled a bigot based on who they are not attracted to. it's like a variation on the streisand effect. no one was talking about trans issues and suddenly someone pipes up and says they are not transphobic, or fear being labeled transphobic for having a legitimate preference that has nothing to do with the topic at hand. it is weird. and again i ask, why?

🙄

Little story kinda related.

tripas / intestines  that are fried crispy and served with tortillas and guacamole and serrano peppers.
Anyway I'm with a girlfriend and her mom. Eat intestines and their awesome fried perfectly. They are way better when very crispy. Think chicken skin or pork skin.  But, her mom get pissed off. Rage. Very angry. Theses are horrible. Nasty. I don't like this place. Their horrible intestines are too too too too God damn clean.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

All I can say is, I'm glad I didn't marrying her daughter. And, ALSO WTF too clean? No, DB, intestines can never be too clean. I rinse mine with vinegar. After four water rinses. Then scold them. Dry and Fry.
