Abolitionist Approach Podcast

23 episodes in the feed.


Gary Francione discusses and explores various aspects of the idea that we ought to abolish, and not merely regulate, animal exploitation. The Commentary will promote ethical veganism and creative, non-violent vegan education as the primary forms of activism to move toward the abolition of animal use.

Commentary #9: Using Sexism to Promote Animal Rights
21 Oct 2009 at 1:57am

Dear Colleagues:

Would Martin Luther King have had an “I’d Rather Go Naked than Sit in the Back of the Bus” campaign?

Of course not.

He would have recognized that such a campaign would trivialize the important message of civil rights.

Why don’t animal advocates recognize that sexist campaigns similarly trivialize the issue of animal rights and give people yet another reason to dismiss the animal rights issue?

That is the topic of our ninth Commentary.
