      Slaying animals for food isn't murder. What are your views on abortion if you have such a strong stance on slaying beasts? Is it wrong to murder and unborn child who hasn't committed any crime against man's laws nor sins against God?

        Humans are also animals. Human flesh is also safe to consume so long as you avoid the brain.

          Nah, you can eat human brains. You'll only get a prion disease if the person you're eating has it and when's the last time you heard of anyone dying from cruzfield-jakobs?

      This earth was made for us. So long as we're good stewards of nature and moral with animal husbandry we are in line with natural order. Some folks aren't, of course. Others are just plain moronic, for instance you're an insufferable homosexual irl probably.

          Anthropocentric would be a better word. I understand what you mean about such a world view, but it happens every day and benefits you. Take industrial farming. Repulsive. Yet, we all benefit and only a fringe will try to fight against it. Reason is, the greater masses are all sated in all regards so unless the collective goyim gets pissed off it's all going to happen anyway due to inertia and comfort.

    blame the french elite.
    Beef comes from the French vocabulary

    When the Normans took over Britain in 1066, they brought the French language with them, and French was brought into everyday life (via The Daily Meal).

    The French conquerors were of a higher class than the Anglo-Saxons who lived in Britain at the time. The Anglo-Saxon folks were hunting, gathering, and farming these animals, whereas the French would sit at the dining table and enjoy them after the fact (via Alpine Butcher). As a result, the terms that the French used for these meats stuck when it comes to talking about them in the culinary sense, which meant that the English word "beef" cames from the French for cow — boeuf. The same can be said for the meat called "pork" — it comes from the French word, porc, which means pig.

      actually boeuf is the word for a castrated male bovine, used for labor or meat, so it's closer to steer or ox. The word for an uncastrated male bovine, a bull, is taureau. A female (cow) is vache.

      Finnish also has the distinction between cow (lehmä) and the meat of cow (nauta), despite zero linguistic connection to French of German.

    dead cow is entire thing, this is beef, a component a fully dead cow, but isnt a dead cow by itself

    • 2 months ago

      I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're refering to as Beef, is in fact, Dead Cow, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Dead plus Cow. Beef is not a food system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning dead cow system made useful by the beef corelibs, beef utilities and vital dead cow components comprising a full meal as defined by Culinaly.

      Many cooks use a modified version of the dead cow every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of dead cow which is widely used today is often called beef, and many of its cooks are not aware that it is basically the dead cow, prepared by the dead cow Project.

      There really is beef, and these people are eating it, but it is just a part of the food they eat. Beef is the meal: the program in the system that allocates the human's resources to the other parts that you run. The meal is an essential part of a food system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete meal system. beef is normally used in combination with the dead cow food system: the whole system is basically dead cow with Beef added, or dead cow/Beef. All the so-called Beef variants are really distributions of Dead cow/Beef!

    I honestly wonder about the people working in a slaughterhouse like this. Like, killing the cows, skinning them, hanging into the hooks, and stuff like that.
    Do they hate their job? Do they have nightmares about this whole shit? I'd feel so sad if that was my profession... But then I don't even eat cows.
