Cow meat is beef. Pig meat is pork. What new name would you give chicken meat?
I say this because I’m wondering whether it’s one of the reasons my son doesn’t like chicken - he equates it with the animal. Got me thinking, because he eats pork and beef.

Why is chicken meat called chicken, but cow meat is called beef and pig meat is called pork?
It does sound strange to say “pig” or “cow” when referencing a meal or a specific type of meat, but why don’t we?

Chicken meat is chicken, cow meat is beef, pig meat is pork. What makes chicken so special?
People react oddly when you refer to beef as cow and pork as pig. It bothers people more when you refer to it as flesh rather than meat.
