Shall I offer some examples that will make most people in America wince?  Steak and kidney pie will do nicely to start.  I seriously can't eat it.  The whole "It is kidneys." bit ruins it for me right off.

And then there is that lovely Scottish dish known as haggis which is made from the stomach and lungs (I think, I took International Cuisine last year so I may be a bit rusty on foreign gross-out food) of a sheep.

This is more than likely a cultural thing because as my teacher (the one I refer to as the American, female Gordan Ramsey with a shrill New York accent) put it, Americans are spoiled.  The only time most of us eat offal is in the form of sausage casings and even those are becomeing more and more synthetic.

And I can get myself around eating haggis- as I made it many times for my late Uncle Emmett, who loved it.  It's kidneys and livers that I seriously cannot eat.

But I think you've nailed it.  Variety meats aren't commonly served in the USA.  We're spoiled.

Cooked pig's intestines

See, I get kidneys, liver. heart, lungs, tongue, possibly tripe,  those I get.  I might even get sweetbreads.  Chittlins, I understood why people ate them, it's the still eating part I don't get.  Intestines are good for link sausage, and that's about it, or so my little brain goes.  Otherwise, EWWWW.

Now with me, I get how intestines are good for link sausage but everything else you listed makes me go EWWWW.

Unfortunately, the English are still working on the 'waste not, want not' principle with food. If it can be made even vaugely edible, we will eat it. Admittedly, I cannot eat liver in any type of dish, as it was always an very overcooked school dinner that I'm sure was a form of punishment, or a form of torture just to toughen you up for adulthood!

My husband will eat pretty much anything, probably due to the fact that his mother was and is an absolutely terrible cook and he has a cast iron stomach. I am just a hell of a lot pickier. Grin

You just never had tongue tacos (cooked in a crockpot, once you take the skin off, it just shreds beautifully for tacos.  My kids didn't even register that it wasn't quite ground beef).  HAggis I can do too, it's oatmeal sausage.  But I think what is getting me about chittlins is literally what was in it before it was cooked, even though I know it is well cleaned and cooked.

Mmmm.... Lingua - muy bueno!

Unfortunately, in this household, my husband is one of those, "I can't eat anything that tastes me back!" kind of people.

Where's a barfing emoticon when you need one?

Chittlins gross me out the way you describe, and kidneys for the same reason.  I have no problems with eating animal carcasses, I just prefer certain parts of the carcass and the thought of eating other parts makes me ill.  I'm weird, I know, stop pointing at me.

what he doesn't know (so long as it doesn't impact allergies and pathogens) won't hurt him.  My husband knew, and he was like, this is tongue?

It's bad enough that he already doesn't entirely trust my cooking. I think my herbals sit too close to my cook books...  Grin

We went to the Olive Garden one night & I ordered a mixed seafood dish - it had mussels, clams, crawfish, shrimp & I think lobster chunks in it. He speared a mussel (which he would not normally volunteer to eat) off my plate, popped it into his mouth, and after chewing on it for a few minutes, looked at me & said, "That wasn't a mushroom, was it!?" He was kind of upset that I didn't warn him first. I was too busy laughing at the look on his face to care how betrayed he was.
