  • Sickos, Psychos, and Idiots: Is Your Activism Ableist?
    What do you think? Are meat-eaters sick? Are animal abusers psychopaths? Do you think people who love some animals but eat other animals are morally schizophrenic? There is an awful lot of ableist claimsmaking taking place in the American Nonhuman Animal rights movement. In my new article, published with the leading journal in disabilities (...more)

    Tofurky: Closer in relation to a bird or a football? "Let me ask you a question," my mother queried to me one day, "If you are against eating meat because it comes from animals, why do you eat veggie dogs?"  Ah, the ol' mock meat "gotcha" question.

  • Effective Messaging: Is Appealing to Social Justice, Environment, or Efficient, More Profitable Exploitation More Effective?
    If abolitionists conducted research like welfarists.... The Humane League's "labs" recently conducted a "study" inappropriately framing abolitionism as a matter of "purity" in its bid to prove that welfarism (THL's approach) was most effective. This "purity" label, as I have explained in previous writings, sets up an immediate bias. (...more)
