    Rush is talking about this right now, so I "Nadined" the story:

    'The Pornography of Meat': School offers course exploring connection between misogyny and meat

    A California college has invited a speaker to teach students that eating meat is misogynistic, and that our society degrades fish because "we don't view them as individuals."

    The lecture, titled "The Sexual Politics of Meat," will take place at the University of Redlands on Monday, and is to explore the "relationship between patriarchal values and meat eating by interweaving the insights of feminism, vegetarianism, animal defense, and literary theory," according to the official website of the speaker, Carol J. Adams.

    We have treated fishes as a mass term ‘fish’ and we don’t view them as individuals.

    The lecture will be based on a book she wrote by the same name, which explores "the hidden connections between meat eating and patriarchy, between vegetarianism and feminism."

    Harvard University hosted Adams in 2010, and she taught students the "parallels between the consumption of meat and misogyny," and "referred to male bonding in steakhouses or at barbecues as examples of a culture of male-dominant consumption of meat and women," according to an article in the Harvard Crimson, the school's official newspaper.

    According to the article, Adams also told students she was upset by the "degradation of fish."

    “We have treated fishes as a mass term ‘fish’ and we don’t view them as individuals,” she said.

    The article also claims that some of the Harvard students had pressed Adams for statistics to back up her claims, only for her to respond, “I don’t give a damn about statistics."

    Only in Commiefornia.

    Don't those people have a sit-in to whine in, or a police car in Berkeley to take a dump on?

    If she went to Divinity School she must have slept through the Genesis 1:26 class "God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.

    Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
