Skip to comments.'The Pornography of Meat': School offers course exploring connection between misogyny and meat
Posted on 10/24/2013 3:50:42 PM PDT by Libloather
A California college has invited a speaker to teach students that eating meat is misogynistic, and that our society degrades fish because "we don't view them as individuals."
The lecture, titled "The Sexual Politics of Meat," will take place at the University of Redlands on Monday, and is to explore the "relationship between patriarchal values and meat eating by interweaving the insights of feminism, vegetarianism, animal defense, and literary theory," according to the official website of the speaker, Carol J. Adams.
The lecture will be based on a book she wrote by the same name, which explores "the hidden connections between meat eating and patriarchy, between vegetarianism and feminism."

Only in my dreams.
Sounds like someone is dating the wrong species.
My wife is so crazy about seafood, she’d rather have fish than flowers. What does that make her?
My ex-wife (from TX) exclaimed, upon first seeing this, "they, don't really do that in Texas!!!!"
"Shhhhh, you're ruining it."
“Guys! Beef: it’s what’s for dinner! Who wants some man meat?”
“I do! I want some man meat!”
“Michael, Dwight would like your man meat.”
“Well then, my man meat he shall have.”
Faux liberal intellectualism passing as philosophical genius.
Makes me ill that so many are suckered into this crap!
What’s weirder than this course is that students will sign up for it. The ones who do deserve the education they get.
but what about the vegetables, they have feelings also............
Makes me think of Bill Clinton!
“My wife is so crazy about seafood, shed rather have fish than flowers. What does that make her?”
A great wife with common sense.
Funny, during my 4 month venture into vegetarianism which ended in spectacular FAIL a few weeks ago I don’t recall detecting any changes in my attitude towards women.
Paid for by the political and social elite who control politicians, schools and the media through their sponsorships. They harbor the belief that this world isn’t big enough for worthy folks like them and trash like the rest of us.
Carrots and bananas can attend this course for free.
Sexual Politics of Meat,
I think this speaker needs to do something with her meat, she doesn’t know eating from copulation.
I tell her I'm a meat-eating vegetarian. She walks away in a huff.
This is from its (I hesitate to use the feminine pronoun)website. Her picture is there. Be prepared. She looks like every other Libiot Nag Hag.
“Im the author of The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory. Its been called ground-breaking and pioneering (interesting how our description of books draws from our invasive relationship to the land). Many say it is an underground classic, which I guess means that lots of people know and love it, but it goes unnoticed by the dominant media. Of course, when it first came out, that was slightly different. Then, right-wing reviewers held it up as the latest example of academic excess and political correctness, which was funny to me, because I am not an academic. I used to teach a course I developed at Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University on Sexual and Domestic Violence: Theological and Pastoral Issues — but very infrequently. Basically, for as long as I have been an adult, I have been an advocate, an activist, someone trying to figure out how do we transform this d*#! world that is built on inequality.
As an undergraduate, I worked to bring womens studies courses to the University of Rochester. This was in the early 1970s, and I struggled to find a way to express feminist ideas in my papers for college. I was also involved in protesting the Vietnam War. I went from college to Yale Divinity School, where my field work was at the New Haven Womens Liberation Center and in an abortion clinic at Yale Medical School. That is where I was the day Roe v. Wade was announced by the Supreme Court. I spent a year at University of Pennsylvania, as an intern for womens issues at the Christian Association. We created a Susan B. Anthony birthday celebration in 1974. I had the opportunity to dress up as Susan B. and read the speech she gave at the Liberty Bell in 1876. For a moment, I stood alone next to the Liberty Bell, before stepping out to enact my part. I was moved by the sense of historical connection to feminist activists from the past, like Anthony and Stanton, and how we were still working to liberate women from inequality.”
There is more, but I didn’t want to use anymore space.

Where’s some of those pornographic images of bacon?
Tell your niece “My food poops on your food.”
Ask any vegetable, and the chances are good,
the vegetable will RESPOND to you....
Now what does this say about womyn who eat meat?
Are they Mysoginists too?
Too much naval gazing when she should have been getting
Call Any Vegetable
These women have obviously never experienced my undulating meat truck of manhood. ;-)
So THAT's why I've seen those gigantic barbecue grills for sale in Lowe's and Home Depot!
The local supermarket has a special on steak this week- does that mean they’re pimps?
I tell the local animal-rights crowd that I’m a vegetarian by proxy. I only eat herbivores.
I love meat. How would these morons explain me away?
Chicken breasts are so sexy...
These same folks are pro abortion and would eat a human in time of need.
***My ex-wife (from TX) exclaimed, upon first seeing this, “they, don’t really do that in Texas!!!!”***
Oh yes they do in TEXAS. I was at my niece’s wedding. We went to a steak house in the DFW area where they cut off your tie and nail it to the wall.
At a certain moment, the music came up, and the waitresses line danced.
Open fire mesquite cooking steaks. beer, music. What’s not to like!
Whaddya wanna bet she’s a carpet muncher?
"My prehistoric ancestors didn't claw and bite
their way up the food chain so that I would eat
veggie burritos and grilled cheese."
The lady left out the main food group...fruitcake.
Does this include eating Spam, 'cause I'm thinking that eating Spam more nihilistic than misogynistic.
During my time at San Francisco State University I drove the Marxist, liberal creepozoids crazy with bumper stickers like: “I Love Animals, They’re Delicious!” then underneath in smaller font “3 times a day, um..um..good!” I would make up unique signs, and place them all over campus. Then I would watch as they were discovered, and the reactions were so much fun. My all time favorite was just after the movie White Men Can’t Jump was released. No one would admit that the title of the movie was racist. So I made up signs “White Men Can’t Jump & Black Men Can’t Add.” Oh, the reactions were priceless!
So, I’ll use it for you. You are a silly twit.
That’s all I’m going to say. I don’t believe in using too much space, either.
Oh, my. She has actively worked to exploit and victimize women. I wonder if she is aware that Susan B. Anthony spoke out against abortion, in part because it reduces women to subhuman status?
After reading her autobiographical statement (at least, the portion you posted here), I am not surprised that she says some kooky things. She gives the impression of a person whose mind is completely fractured by the incoherent and contradictory belief system she has adopted.
Mmm, Spam. Spam and scrambled eggs. Cue up the Monte Python!
I used to know a guy who wouldn’t eat anything that he could tell, by looking at it, what it was when it was alive.
He ate a lot of hamburgers and hot dogs.
All righty then.
Well steakhouses are kind of cowboy.
But real cowboys respect (and love) real cowgirls.
It’s these wimpy womyn who can’t even think their way out of a paper bag who give the fairer sex an unfair rap.
It’s a shame. If they accepted the Lord (the root of their problems is their rejection of Him) they’d eventually come to know why the real cowboys and cowgirls do what they do and go yeehaw doing it.
Is this a real cook book. LOL
Just put up an Angus steer dressed out to 825 lbs. Finishing a hog out on free 2 day old doughnuts, pineapples going to waste at the supermarket, and apple drops from our trees. I’ll smoke the hams, bellies and jowls for bacon. Might even make some souse. I just need a deer and a couple of turkeys and I’ll be set, Meat it’s what’s for dinner.
