I was interviewed several weeks ago by Kara Jesella of The New York Times. She asked my opinion on perceived sexism in the animal rights community.
Here's the article she wrote. Sadly, her editor cut my quotes out of the piece. Damn.
Anyway, I told Kara my feelings: sexism runs rampant in our society. It's also prevalent in the animal rights movement. Take a look at the vegan strip club and some PETA anti-fur campaigns to see what I mean.
We all need to be conscious of all liberation struggles, not just animal liberation. We should not undermine one group to prop up another (e.g. objectifying women in order to spread the message of animal rights).
What do you all think?
