the Word “foodie”

[of those who put “foodie” on their profile in online social networks]
foodie. What a fucking word. Offensive to my eyes.
personally, i enjoy food too. I particular enjoy killing other animals, skin them, cut their body, and eat them. The blood and danger is a thrill that keeps me alive. Though, modern society has deprived me the pleasure as well as the labor of the killing, or the pleasure of running a slaughter house.
although i imagine if i had to do it everyday just to taste the flesh of a bull or birdie, it'd be becoming a drudge. But it's the basics of life i'd like to keep in touch. This, i would do instead of watching some horror or thriller movies.
so yeah, i enjoy food. But not just eating animals. Plants too. Slash them, uproot them, skin them, eat their seeds and pulps. Hell yeah. To be honest, nuts, broccoli, leafy greens, carrot, ARE among my favorite foods. Usually preferring them raw. And i've been eating lots of them about every other day for the past decade. (not so much broccoli recently)
but the word foodie... what a motherfuck fuckers fucking scumbag.
on the subject of words describing food, i'd prefer: victuals, edibles, sustenance, provisions, ration.
for those foodies, i propose you say on your resume: viands lover, instead.
foodies are those human animals who have become this numb living zombies with fine mouths.
and fuck the word gourmet too.
