Are You Grossed Out by the Act of Butchering?

When I was little, I always liked going to the butchers with my dad. There was something so fascinating about the cuts of meat and the sterile white aprons. Also, I normally got a sample I enjoyed: a slice of salami or bologna, or my favorite, a cold hot dog. After attending a sausage making class and several recent events, like Cochon 555 and the Golden Glass, that highlight the art of butchering, I've developed a newfound interest in butchery. However, I realize cutting a dead animal into pieces for consumption isn't everyone's idea of a good time. That's why I'm wondering, what's your take on it?
