Is human cannibalism wrong? (Page 3)
Nosferatu: In a desperate time where food is needed and there is no animal or plant source a human could be a viable option. Human cannibalism is still practiced in Papua New Guinea. Humans are not the only creatures that practice cannibalism. Female praying mantises, named whether they are religious or not, prey upon their male mates after copulation and then lay their eggs in their stomachs. That action may be solely a mating ritual and not a feasting ritual because a) females do not practice this method outside of mating and b) males do not feast upon females.
Mammal homnivores are close to cannibals because they eat food that is in the same class as them: mammalia. Class is close to species, but it isn't exactly species. One animal that does practice cannibalism is golden hamsters, though I believe if provoked any animal would practice eating their young. So, since other mammals practice eating their young, it is not so shameful that humans do it. Wrong? What is more noble than survival. Encourageble? With so many easy options to obtain meat and non-meat that contains all the vitamins and nutrients that meat contains (nuts, tofu) there should be no excuse to practice cannibalism. Even stranded on another island with only humans there is probably fruit and nuts and only a maniac would resort to killing their own kind before resorting to trying to build a boat out of the wood from trees.
Aura: we all agree that humans did/do eat other humans at times and weather you find this a good or bad thing is a moral question. But I've been thinking....would human meat these days even get through inspection? With all the shit we put into our bodies (medicine, drugs, pollution, stuff like that) I really don't think it would. If hanibal lector was real he would probably have gotten some sort of health problem, and miss lovits pie shop would probably be shut down today even if they never found out where they got the ingredients.
..."eye would have the moderators balls cooked medium to rare served on kabab sticks"...
Outback John: Ok the reality is we accept eating freely cows . goats , kangaroo, pigs, chickens, etc
We are mammals our flesh is not disgusting its beautiful and good
Hey Jules: Question reminded me of a famous serial killer his name inspired Ginger Fish from Marilyn Manson his name was Albert Fish he sent this note to the family of a child after he ate her:
Dear Mrs. Budd. In 1894 a friend of mine shipped as a deck hand on the Steamer Tacoma, Capt. John Davis. They sailed from San Francisco for Hong Kong, China. On arriving there he and two others went ashore and got drunk. When they returned the boat was gone. At that time there was famine in China. Meat of any kind was from $1–3 per pound. So great was the suffering among the very poor that all children under 12 were sold for food in order to keep others from starving. A boy or girl under 14 was not safe in the street. You could go in any shop and ask for steak—chops—or stew meat. Part of the naked body of a boy or girl would be brought out and just what you wanted cut from it. A boy or girl's behind which is the sweetest part of the body and sold as veal cutlet brought the highest price. John staid [sic] there so long he acquired a taste for human flesh. On his return to N.Y. he stole two boys, one 7 and one 11. Took them to his home stripped them naked tied them in a closet. Then burned everything they had on. Several times every day and night he spanked them – tortured them – to make their meat good and tender. First he killed the 11 year old boy, because he had the fattest ass and of course the most meat on it. Every part of his body was cooked and eaten except the head—bones and guts. He was roasted in the oven (all of his ass), boiled, broiled, fried and stewed. The little boy was next, went the same way. At that time, I was living at 409 E 100 St. near—right side. He told me so often how good human flesh was I made up my mind to taste it. On Sunday June the 3, 1928 I called on you at 406 W 15 St. Brought you pot cheese—strawberries. We had lunch. Grace sat in my lap and kissed me. I made up my mind to eat her. On the pretense of taking her to a party. You said yes she could go. I took her to an empty house in Westchester I had already picked out. When we got there, I told her to remain outside. She picked wildflowers. I went upstairs and stripped all my clothes off. I knew if I did not I would get her blood on them. When all was ready I went to the window and called her. Then I hid in a closet until she was in the room. When she saw me all naked she began to cry and tried to run down the stairs. I grabbed her and she said she would tell her mamma. First I stripped her naked. How she did kick – bite and scratch. I choked her to death, then cut her in small pieces so I could take my meat to my rooms. Cook and eat it. How sweet and tender her little ass was roasted in the oven. It took me 9 days to eat her entire body. I did not fu*k her tho I could of had I wished. She died a virgin.
I couldn't eat meat for a month after reading about him...ughhhh

xxzero: "Ever notice that in most horror films the only woman that lives is the virgin?"
the movie "scream" also notice that detail in horror films and use it as part of the plot in the movie..
the dialogue about "virgins never die in horror films" is one of the great funny moments in that classic horror movie..

Outback John: Vikings were known to have slaughtered newborns in villages that they captured after killing the men and doing what they did with all the others.
In Australia escaped early convicts in an infamous account , were starving , and drew straws as to who got eaten.
They were 3
The poor bugger who lost that one got clubbed to death.
Then put on the barbie .
