3. When Mainstream Vegan Feminists Talk About Animal Rights, They Are Super Trans-Exclusionary

I’ve seen a lot of adverts and signs over the years declaring that being vegan is feminist, and that the animal industry is built on the exploitation of the “female reproductive system” — thereby making it an issue that all women should resonate with.



The problem is that defining what it means to be female as having a uterus, ovaries, vagina, and mammary glands completely erases trans women, trans men, non-binary folks, and anyone whose body doesn’t conform to that super essentialized (and incorrect) definition.



By rooting their analysis of animal rights in this archaic definition of gender, mainstream vegan feminists ignore and exclude the lives of trans folks.



If you want to be a vegan feminist, great! But there’s no need to resort to inaccurate and harmful tropes about biology and reproductive organs to make a point.

Hilarious article (that isn't a parody). Also talks about how "white supremacism" manifests itself in vegetarianism.

Man, Whitey gets around with his oppressive ways.

I couldn't read the whole thing. My brain started hurting two sentences into the article.

Why do we care what some tiny, deranged fringe thinks?

Everyday Feminism is a malignant tumor. My ex-GF was starting to "discover" that site a month or two before we called it quits. I couldn't suppress a grin when I heard, a few weeks ago, that they were having money problems and might have to shut down.

I'm just going to plug a few recommended spots to get your daily fill of post-modern regression.

Because they're at the vanguard of regressive thought. These things tend not to stay fringe forever. They have several million readers, or so they claim. We should at least be semi-aware of the twisted way they use language to espouse their worldview.

My son and his gf have worked in animal protection for 10 years and have been vegan even longer and I've never heard either one ever mention "vegan feminism."
