The intersection between Feminism Veganism and Antinatalism

“Alternatively, the universalized version of this could exist within a conception of property. You should not rape a cow because that would be like raping your wife or child. Is this version any more sound? These wrinkles reveal the inherent indifference between men and women. Men are often expected to fulfill one significant purpose, whereas women are meant to fulfill many. Male cows are expected to become meat; female cows are expected to breed, give birth, provide milk, and then also become meat. To properly exercise Kantian ethics toward the issue of veganism, one must simply declare: it is not ethical to exploit any sentient body, for meat, for skin, for dairy, for eggs, whether it is personally beneficial or not.”

“Animal factory farming is an inherently sexual process that rests on female animals’ reproductive abilities in sexual slavery in the interests of efficiency and increases profits. We can do better.”

“If capital truly had nothing to do with sex and gender, then women would be fully integrated and equally paid in the year 2021 and animals could not be exploited on the basis of their capacity to reproduce.”

“Somehow, and totally illogically, we as a society have made the concept of being single a women’s issue. I suspect the answer is that we, as a society, perceive that being married is a highly desirable state for women. Take the way we write about celebrities. A male and female celebrity can have a very similar dating history, both having dated a lot but never married, but we’ll describe them completely differently. The man will have ‘dated a string of top models and beautiful actresses’ whereas the female will have been ‘unlucky in love’ (even though the guys she’s dated were just as hot as the women her male counterpart dated).”

“Clearly, the body of the woman in The Great Indian Kitchen is merely reduced to a pair of hands alternating between the piled-up kitchen sink and the stoves when not a vagina that should dutifully be available for the husband’s pleasure when not bleeding.”
