I've heard other veg*ns mention the same thing, though it doesn't bother me personally. Maybe because I use the word to refer to things other than animal flesh, such as nut meats.<br><br><br><br>
Whether you're crazy or not, though, I can't say. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
I read a restaurant reviewer's chat every week, and somehow we got on the subject of "words we hate" this week. It surprised me how many people dislike the word "veggie" to refer to either vegetables or vegetarians. (The same people seemed to dislike the words "hubby", "nummy", and "delish".) Funny how a simple word can raise our hackles.

Avocado, i am sure if you ARE crazy, there are far more compelling reasons than this one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/pibo.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":pibo:">

It did not bother me at first. But, recently, is has. Not always, but every now and then it makes me cringe. I am crazy however... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">

Hahaha.. I'm sorry, but this made me laugh. Not in a condescending way, but because I can relate. I had weird little things that really bugged me when I was a kid that I just have no explanation for now. This just made me think, did you have a traumatizing experience with an episode of Sesame Street or something? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

In general 'meat' doesn't bother me. I hate it when people say "meat" when referring to vegetarian food. My mum does it all the time. She'll buy some lovely veggie sausages and when they are done announce "the meat is ready", or refer to a slice of nutloaf as "meatloaf". She stopped (or rather, tried to stop) doing it after I told her that it bothered me. She says she is just so used to calling sausages etc "meat" that it was hard to break the habit.

I say "veggie" all the time in that context. Duly noted. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I hate "nummy" too. What are you, 2? Hubby* is sort of annoying but not as much. Same as using "bubby" instead of "baby". Not really annoying so much as they make me think the person hasn't progressed verbally passed age four. "DH" said in real life (for example "My Dee 'Aitch and I are going to the movies") drives me up the wall. He'd got a name, use it. Finally, last hated word for today is "furbaby" and "furchild". I've said before on these boards and I'll say it again, my cats are not, and will never be, my "furbabies". Oh, and to all those vet assistants out there I am not their "Mummy" either.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
*I should clarify, it's "Hubby" and "Bubby" used as personal pronouns that bugs me. "Aw... what a cute little bubby!" is sort of ok, but "Hubby and I think that Bubby should take dance lessons when she is older".

Not at all. I often say mock meats.<br><br>
What I am more bothered by is euphanism language such as pork, beef, mutton. I'd rather say pig meat, cow meat and sheep meat.<br><br><br><br>
In reference to muscle tissue used as food, do you prefer flesh?.

Preggy, preggers, preggo, or any bastardization of the word "pregnant" really grosses me out for some inexplicable reason.<br><br><br><br>
Now that I think of it, there are <i>lots</i> of other words that bug me.. but meat isn't really one of them, unless it's used in a sexual context. Then it's kinda gross.

"Meat" doesn't bother me, but the word "flesh" does. I think it was because I was too into the medieval period when I was younger, and I've associated "flesh" with peels of human flesh after a flaying.<br><br><br><br>
On other words that annoy me, I absolutely hate certain euphemisms for excrement and urine. "Poop" and "pee" don't bother me, but "crap," "sh**," and "piss" make me want to claw the eyes out of the speaker. Same with cutesy words for certain body parts (namely the sexual ones).<br><br><br><br>
Hmm. I do have word dislikes that aren't biology related, but I can't think of any right now. But, yeah, it's not uncommon to dislike certain words for whatever reason.

I've always liked the German word for vagina, but I cannot spell it. I would have kept using it, but then nobody in the US would know what I was talking about.<br><br><br><br>
Here's something really funny: My aunt is named the European word for toltiet. Her name is Chloe. My mom was shocked when she found this out at first. Consider going to another country and finding someone named toliet. I always thought it was weird along with my uncle being named after another word for penis, Dick.
