It defines a proponent of meat-eating and human consumption of animals in general. It'd be what meat-eaters would call themselves if they could only accept that their diet stems from a philosophy of speciecism and a belief that humans are superior to other sentient beings.

Given that meat eating it is a choice and not an actual necessity in civilised societies, carnism is a philosophy that seeks to defend carnists in their abject subjugation and oppression of non-human animals by justifying their decision and making animals appear as mere objects.
John: Fuck, I love me some bacon.

Mary: Please don't be such a carnist.

John: But I like BACON. What's a carnist anyway?

Mary: Someone who thinks that animals are meant to be eaten and feels no remorse for it.

John: But animals have to be eaten.

Mary: My point exactly.

Anyone who consumes animal flesh, including poultry, fish, red meat, and other subdivisions.
Julia didn't mind that her friend was a carnist, but when every meal they prepared included meat, she knew she had to leave.

A term applied to people who eat meat, usually by vegetarians attempting to feel superior
Moonchild: "UH! You're eating animal flesh?! What are you, a Carnist?"
Dave: "Uh, nope. Just eating a balanced diet of steak and vegetables."
Moonchild: "Civilised societies don't NEED to eat meat."
Dave: "Civilised societies don't NEED to be condescending either. Ghandi was a vegan, and he tried to change the world by being a humble example, not a smug, whiny twat. Besides, I eat all natural food, you eat vegetables and a bunch of pills. We're not meant to sustain ourselves with pills from a bottle."
Moonchild: "Murderer!"
Dave: "You're right. Prepare to die and be eaten."

A person who has an irrational prejudice of meat eaters. Not real carnivores of course, just human omnivores who rape and murder cheeseburgers.
Hypocritical vegan #1: LOL Hitler wasn't a vegetarian.
Hypocritical vegan #2: Yeah stupid carnists don't know anything.
