November Choice Chat: The Sexual Politics of Meat

carol adamsJoin Feminists For Choice for our next choice chat. Our guest will be Carol Adams, the author of The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory. Carol’s book has been called “ground-breaking” and “pioneering.” Many say it is an underground classic, which Adams supposes means that lots of people know and love it, but it goes unnoticed by the dominant media. Ms. Adams will be discussing the connections between veganism and the pro-choice movement. She’ll also be sharing tips for vegans to help them survive the holiday season.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 21st at 12:00 PM PST. This choice chat promises to be enlightening for those who may have never considered the connection between what they eat and what they believe. If you’ve read Ms. Adams’s books, you know you’re in for a big treat.

  2. Someone posted this to my facebook:

    It should be pointed out that an argument that says that meat-eating is just as bad as rape is also saying that rape is no worse than eating meat.

    Also, granting animals moral equivalence also burdens them with equal moral obligations, and to argue otherwise would be “speciesist” by its own terms. Among other things, this manufactures the moral necessity for animals to stop eating each other.

    Cylyn, I would love for you to read Adams’s book and then join us for the choice chat. She makes very compelling arguments. #1, we are all animals. #2, raping all animals is wrong, and #3 forced maternity for all animals is wrong. I’m really oversimplifying it, so check out her book. It’s worth the read, and even if you don’t agree, it will challenge you to look at things in a new way.

    • sorry for the delayed response I didn’t know how to sign up for notifications back then. I had read the book, but being a student at the time I was ill prepared for an actual debate with a philosophical misogynist at the time. They had posted the comment to my facebook page. I will reread the book though now that I am older. thank you for your time! Much gratitude,
      Lyn
