First there was chicks with dicks. Then men who menstruate. Now it is butchers without meat. Don’t like reality? Make something up. Correct me if I’m wrong. Isn’t applying a term, as it is commonly understood, to a diametrically opposed concept, cultural appropriation? I thought cultural appropriation was bad. Guess it depends on who is doing the appropriating.
This would be a good time to point out the definition of butcher. Butcher can be a noun or a verb. As a noun the term clearly does not apply. It doesn’t fare much better as a verb. A case can be made that butcher and vegan are compatible when used as an informal verb. As in: to call a greengrocer a butcher is to butcher the language.

informal : to do (something) very badly : to make a mess of (something)
If this vegan shit is so good how come everything they make is supposed to taste just like meat? Why can’t it stand on its own? I like vegetables. I guess I’m too smart to be a vegan. I’ve never confused broccoli with a steak.
