Except that "Some people" includes many Asian, African, and Oceanian nations, some of them are amongst the most populous country with some of the biggest economy and military power in the world.
For example silkworm pupae is a very common delicacy in countries pioneered in silk manufacture in history, amongst them is one country who has the second biggest economy in the world and is the main adversary of the West.
Except that when the food source is no longer scarce they still eat it as valuable or extremely valuable delicacy, and when it is possible, they make farms to cultivate it to supply the market in large amount. Examples: silkworm pupae, crickets, Asian palm weevil larvae, hornet larvae.
Except that many of the bugs has nothing to do with food scarcity, but are treated as "special food" with medicine characteristic and exceptional nutritional value, and may be associated with social privileges and elite class. Examples: mantis nest, hornet, cicada shell, termite queen, Lethocerus indicus.
That just underlines my statement, that vast majority on the globe, even in Asian countries which make up most of the populace on this planet do not rely on insects being the main source of food nor as main source of protein.
Some people also do not like crabs, lobster, shrimps and alike because they are looking like insects and were treated for some quite time as such, just ask our biggest prison in the world.
The difference is, that crustaceans do not have a bitter taste.
Your example is the evidence that people's tatse or subjective feelings of disgust, is NOT a correct criteria to judge the quality of the food.
That is where you are wrong.
No offense, but if most mammals have developed a behavior to avoid bitterness in potential food which is a distinctive feature most toxins have, then this is not subjective but a hard fact.
Avoid bitter tasting sources of food equals to reduce the risk of getting killed by a toxin or venom.
Most plants and animals (reptiles mostly) which developed toxins/venoms did that on purpose to protect themselves from getting eaten.
What you are talking about is a different subject of people who consider some insects as a delicacy. This might be, maybe, a higher percentage of Asians falling under the "non-tasters" of bitterness and therefore, with the already presence of insects being eaten by some part of the population having less of an "disgust" reaction to it. The behavioral food embossing is still a evolutionary step in most mammals from the age of 3-7 and can be purposefully used to have your child a certain diet.
Maybe you just have a higher distribution of people without the gen to taste bitterness or are less affected by the level and adverse reaction of the body for taste.
The Subjective feeling of disgust can be very misleading. For example it is a misconception that the "bitter" part of a snail deep inside its shell are feces and dirty, but the feces and dirty part is actually in the fleshy outward parts where people usually eat.
Certain people may feel disgust with very high quality food such as Lethocerus indicus or prahok and their feeling of disgust is clearly incorrect.
That statement is anecdotal as it is not subjective but objective. Even after googling pictures of this insects I do not have the desire to taste them even if you paid me for it. From my understanding, most people would not eat it ever and most people would not eat it on regular basis. They do look unpleasing to chew on and I don't want to taste them, but that would be anecdotal too.
You seem to confuse the part which was the whole argument. MOST people, do not rely on insects as a main source of food when they have other options. You will see an increase in consumption of insects when other food sources are unavailable and they will go down when people have the option to get chicken, pork, cow, cheese or other protein rich food sources.
That does not mean insects is bitter. Silkworm pupae is not bitter. Cricket tastes like shrimp.
Ants aren't bitter but kind a sweet sour in taste and the exist everywhere on this Globe. I don't see Europeans, Americans (North and South) and not to many Africans eating them. Europeans and Americans have enough meat available and most Africans eat them due to necessity. Look at richer and more flourishing African countries and you will see that insects is an absolute niche or food of the ultra poor.
That does not mean bitter food cannot be valuable or bitter food is not delicious or not popular. Momordica charantia is very bitter but is a common food from Africa to Asia.
Bitter food is non delicious to "tasters" of bitterness, which have the gen and definitely to those with a pronounced expression of this alleles.
The taste of bitterness enable humanity to detect many toxins and inedible foods but human social evolution has progressed enough to know that natural instinct is flawed, can be misleading, and people can see many things beyond their physical sense and instincts.
Your theory of social evolution and "flawed instincts" would be a really nice case study on how much these "flawed instincts" are useful or just some sort of backwardness.
You would be totally right if you had developed some resistence to toxins due to consumption of minor evils of the toxins world, but I doubt that part since nobody has ever heard of it.
Cuisine worldwide is very complex and diverse and is strongly influenced by social and economical factors rather than vulgar natural factor. A vulgar generalization such as "insect is disgusting" is very biased and unfair.
It is not unfair. If you have 50% of your potential source of food being toxic as an evolutionary self-defense mechanism you might look for other sources of food that might not kill you when you eat them.
You can eat meat and it won't kill you. Insects, well the risk is high if you do not need to rely on them.
Conclusion: "insect as food" should be evaluated comprehensively from a neutral point of view with the aim to understand the complex and diverse cuisine culture of humanity and to learn the copious experiences of various communities, not as the mean for the Western corrupted ruler to push their agenda, and also but not as a mean to antagonize the communities with different cultures.
My friend, you are from a different culture and have zero understanding of the context of the globalist piece of shits that are forcing us to eat bugs for their perverted dreams, by which they consider us as vermin. You eat insects due to historical and cultural circumstances and (maybe) genetic, I can't know.
You have an option, while we are treated like children unable to think or understand and without an option despite there is no necessity to switch from meat to insects. You can't and you won't be able to understand that. Try to force the entire Muslim world to switch to Pork eating and see how that works out for you. Pork tastes nice and is not unclean meat. But try that one and see their response. They certainly will not be so polite to give you an explanation why they won't eat pork nor give you the time to tell them what they can eat and what not.
