Swansea University researcher Dr. Shareena Hamzah has a beef with terms that don’t take into consideration “the rise of veganism.”

According to Hamzah, terms like “bringing home the bacon” or “your goose is cooked” desensitize people to “the demand for meat,” which she contributes to poor health and climate change in an essay published by theconversation.com.

“In today’s reality, meat is repeatedly the subject of much socially and politically charged discussion,” Hamzah wrote. “The increased awareness of vegan issues will filter through our consciousness to produce new modes of expression – after all, there’s more than one way to peel a potato.”

She suggests that metaphor to one that references “skinning a cat.” Hamzah also argues that there’s an inherent classism associated with carnivore diets, which could be broken down if our language evolves.
