What In The Fresh Hell Is This? The Phrase ‘Bringing Home The Bacon’ Could Be Offensive…To Vegans

Everything is offensive in today’s politically correct atmosphere. Folks say it’s important to be more aware of certain aspects of society; they call it “increases awareness,” which is liberal speak for stuff we don’t like. I guess that’s important in principle…unless you’re a piece of trash vegan or vegetarian. Across the pond, our cousins in the United Kingdom, published a piece about how the rise of these two food trends, which ironically encapsulate the epitome of upper-middle class privilege, are trying to sanitize certain phrases, like “bringing home the bacon,” because it might offend these devil people (via The Independent):

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. 

“In today’s reality, meat is repeatedly the subject of much socially and politically charged discussion, including about how the demand for meat is contributing to climate change and environmental degradation,” she continues.

“Given that fiction often reflects on real world events and societal issues, it may very well be that down the line powerful meat metaphors are eschewed.

That means use as many “meat metaphors” as possible, folks. Why? Because screw these people. The Left rants and whines about so-called privilege, well—this is it. Meat is a source of sustenance for most of the world that cannot afford to go vegan or vegetarian. These people suck. Sorry, all of you do. The late Anthony Bourdain was right; you’re the terrorists of the culinary world. The nefarious Hezbollah splinter cells infesting the kitchen.
