Pattrice Jones Quotes: When I Look Closely At Dairy I See The

When I Look Closely At Dairy, I See The Hurtful Exploitation Of Specifically Female Bodies So That Some People Can Enjoy Sensual Pleasures Of Consumption While Others Enjoy The Psychological Pleasure Of Collecting Profits From The Exertions Of Somebody Else's Body. Cows Are Forcibly Impregnated, Dispossessed Of Their Children, And Then Painfully Robbed Of The Milk Produced By Their Bodies For Those Children. No Wonder I Didn't Want To See My Complicity! Most Women Don't Consciously Perceive The Everyday Violence Against Girls And Women That Permeates And Structures Our Society. How Much Harder It Is, Then, To See The Gendered Violence Against Nonhuman Animals Behind The Everyday Items On The Grocery Store Shelf. When We, As Women, Partake Of That Violence, We Participate In Sexism Even As We Enjoy The Illusory Benefits Of Speciesism. No Wonder A Glimpse Of The Sexist Violence Behind My Breakfast Cereal Left Me Dizzy.
