    Especially when you local store sells and the new manger decides to put the panty hose right in front of the meat.

    I think losers in the social arena tend to use terms like that. They have more time to think about it.

    You know what I find offensive? People who are always finding offense with colloquial expressions and trying to make the rest of us change the way we refer to something because they selfishly whine about how their selective sensibilities are offended by words. Grow the f++k up! And have a great day! :-D

    It is a very descriptive term that accurately portrays the attitudes and methods of certain people in certain circumstances. When it is appropriately used, there is nothing offensive about it. When it is inappropriately used it is senseless and inaccurate, therefore there is nothing there to get offended by.

    Even worse than being called a 'meat market' ..
    is the horrid (and definitely pathetic in a very sad, sad (sometimes disturbing way)
    the pick up lines ...
    some truly deserve to be slapped into the next dimension ..
    (that is how offensive/rude/disgusting they are .. )

    PS ..
    I go to a local BUTCHER ..
    (or the Amish Market) to get my fresh proteins ..
    I know the source (including how I raise my own livestock)
    and I know the meat is fresh indeed ..
    all properly flash-frozen for stocking the freezer for the season ..

    I wonder what they say. Maybe it works sometimes?
    Sometimes you see guys walk into a club, say a few words to a girl, and next thing they are walking out together. What did he say?

    We are all meat for sale. As long as we can all accept it and laugh at ourselves no harm done.

    No, it's the honest truth about our world in which we buy and sell each other, anyone who plays offended is not in touch with reality or self honest about it yet.

    I watched a programme last night about young people behaving abominably in Kavos Greece. I felt sorry for the indigenous Greeks who have to put up with this bacchinalia - and the young people were there to get very drunk and have sex, so the term meat market could aptly describe that situation. Lady Gaga had a dress made of meat. The meaning of the word carnival is a festival of the flesh (or meat).

    Unfortunately, I find it an accurate representation of what some people really mean. There are so many more highly offensive terms to choose from like "Friends with Benefits" that, that one seems more commonplace.

    well it used to mean one thing and now it means another. it used to mean a party or bar or venue of some sort where there were plenty of available women who LIKED being available. now I think it means the same as a sausage fest, which is a party where there are NO available women that are in any way interested in being available (often 1 or 2 women and like 50 guys). So now I find it quite offensive (as well as off- putting) but i used to LOVE the term.

    I was born in the east and mama always sent me to the meat market with a note to what she wanted. When we moved to Calif. we could not find one and mama was mad, cause it meant she had to go and pick out the meat that was already wrapped.
    But now they have meat markets here in AZ and we shop at them all the time...
