82. We don't have to talk about it. It permeates society.

Eating meat is seen as "normal" in American and many other societies. People who adapt, especially strict vegan diets are hard pressed to find foods that have not been linked in any way with a meat eating diet. Those who have political views about eating meat are often demonized.

The crazy thing is that the idea of an omnivorous diet is sort of like White, or male privilege in that when we get criticized for eating meat and the very real consequences that our choice has on the environment, we feel like we are being persecuted.
