Does anyone else really not like to touch raw meat with their bare hands?

I think I'm a little OCD about this. I will NOT touch raw meat with my bare hands. I always use gloves, and even then, I wash my hands very well afterward. It's especially bad with chicken. I don't want the chicken touching anything in my kitchen. It goes straight from the package it came in to whatever it'll be cooked in, which is usually a crock pot. I cringe when I see someone holding a raw piece of chicken without gloves. It just seems so...germy, lol! Am I the only one that gets completely grossed out by raw meat, lol?

  • I don't particularly like it but I only wear gloves when I'm mixing something like meatloaf or doing a spice rub.

  • Totally grosses me out. I'm usually dumping it straight from the container into the cooking pan, if at all possible. LOL

  • I never use gloves, I just wash my hands super well afterward. I don't like it, but I don't dislike it enough to resort to the use of rubber lol.

  • Oh, but I won't reach in to the sink catcher thing and clean it out or the garbage disposal. I use spoons or gloves for that lol.

  • little sister is the same. I'm pretty sure it's some form of phobia. Personally I don't mind.

  • I would be in trouble! I buy meat in bulk and seperate it out when I get home (honestly, its cheaper that way)... so I have to touch the chicken breasts, the ground beef, the pork chops... I just wash REALLY good before, during, and after.

  • I just wash my hands before and after. I think you all are funny. You won't tough it raw. But you will eat the same meat cooked. LOL
