New Find: anthro.pophago

In my search to find sites that Make Anthro Public, I found a real winner today at http://anthro.pophago.us/.

Rather than describe it, I’ll allow suspense and the following definition to lead the way.

anthropophagy can refer to:

  1. human cannibalism
  2. human consumption (that is, the tendency of certain animals, such as leeches or trichinae, to eat or similarly harm humans)

the word derives from greekanthropos, “man” + phagein, “to eat”.

    Human consumption…would that also mean our consumption of people in war? Or could it also mean our consumption of humans when humans bite their nails? It could also be thought of when some humans eat scabs or suckle their wounds (i.e. consuming their own blood)
