Buck Up Nancy Boy!

Another Saturday and another weekend and another couple days of mental rest…..

For a couple of years there has been this war of “political correctness”……an attempt to make people happy….you know sort of like the war on Christmas bullshit…..where there is this hidden agenda to crap on Christmas by forcing people to say Happy Holidays instead of the more traditional one…..

Political Correctness is a made up problem that idiots use to avoid any real thought…..and these days it can only get worse…..but with that said…..

Actually I found another one of these stupid, mindless psuedo-trend…..where so not of offend vegans we should not say such phrases as “bring home the bacon”…..

You may think phrases like “bringing home the bacon” and “putting all your eggs in one basket” are harmless quirks of the English language, but they could be offending vegans and vegetarians, with one academic claiming they might end up being avoided altogether as a result.

As research shows more people are removing animal products from their diets than ever before, Shareena Hamzah of Swansea University says idioms involving animal products could be rendered obsolete because they are out of touch with the zeitgeist.

Writing for The Conversation, the researcher explains how meat-based metaphors are a popular staple of our everyday vernacular but that an increased awareness in the environmental and ethical issues surrounding meat production “will undoubtedly be reflected in our language and literature” and that this language may no longer be so widely accepted.

Really?

So now there is a War on Veganism?

I have only one thought on this situation…..the term veganism makes me ill so………. buck up Nancy and get over yourself!

I personally do not care if their sensibilities are offended by meat or honey or eggs or cheese……only one more thought…..

Seriously?

Fire up the fire pit and put a slab of parsnip on the barbie…..

Damn!  I be hungry….later my friends….chuq

  1. Political correctness is the modern form of Puritanism. Those kill-joys are such self-important bastards, it makes my blood boil. The latest one over here has to be heard to be believed. Some shops are thinking of banning the sale of candy canes, those used to decorate Christmas Trees. The reason? They form the letter ‘J’, which could stand for ”Jesus’, so might offend non-Christians.
    I think it’s high time for a non-PC backlash. To the barricades! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. My daughter works new a yoga studio and they were up in arms when a eatery opened close by saying the smell of cooking meat made them ill……they start to pick and I went everyday to eat so I could throw it in their faces…..tot the barricades indeed! chuq

  2. Vegan, here. I don’t care for political correctness, either. But you know, complaining about vegans and veganism is missing the point. Veganism isn’t about vegans. It’s about using your nut to see that humans are f*cking everything up. You can hate every vegan you’ve ever met, and still think that the meat industry is a grotesque horror show.

    1. Humans have fucked up everything they always have and vegans will not change that in any way…..veganism is a waste of time and effort….people return to their roots…..chuq

  3. Harry New Year to you too.

    But I must disagree that we are always destined to fuck everything up. I prefer to be more optimistic than that, and say that we should at least make every effort not to, even if we fail. The attempt is bound to make some, small positive difference, more so than if we do nothing, or do our very worst.

    As for returning to our roots… Our roots go back far beyond the time that you’re talking about. What is a human? When in our past did we become human? Before “we” were human, we were some kind of ape. Before that, our ancestors were something else entirely… And back and back through the whole history of time, until you get to the sludgy green soup from which all life sprung. And that substance was not omnivorous. It did not eat steak.

    What I’m saying is, humans can change. We could even evolve – if we let ourselves.

      1. Haha! Unfortunately I doubt it tasted like kale smoothie. Or is it fortunate?

        When I say ‘evolution’, I mean it more figuratively. I believe that humans alone can make choices that radically alter the path of our entire species – we have done so with technology and medicine. We can do it with simple, every day choices to. In fact, I think simple every day choice is more powerful than technology. All our science has no worth without wise and careful application. We could destroy ourselves, or elevate ourselves. What will we choose?
