I’ve had this question for a very very long time and gotten multiple answers however I haven’t been satisfied with any of them. What do you think, is it not cannibalism is it cannibalism or is it both…?
no, in the same way that killing yourself isn’t really seen as homicide.
people like making distinctions between self-sustained harm and other forms of harm, too, so…
it’s almost like when one mentions an action that inflicts harm, except if that action has very strong connotations with self-harm (i.e. hanging), it is almost always assumed that said action is inflicted on another and not one oneself except when the word specifies/suggests that the harm is self inflicted
i think that goes for most actions now that i think of it
idk bro, it’s a google search away
No. It’s called being a freak.
So, if I decided to eat my own flesh it would NOT be cannibalism, and instead it would simply be an act of self sustenance.
