That's why I use "meat" when talking to those who engage in
anti-transhumanist hysteria.

The current breed of anti-transhumanist hysteria is often informed by
vitalism: the belief that current flesh&blood humans are animated by
some mystical end ethereal "elan vital" that science will never be
able to understand and engineering will never be able to improve.
Referring to current flesh&blood humans as meat is a way to reject
this crap.
