veganism and women’s bodies

More PETA tactics.

There’s an article in the New York Times that covers a lot of the points we’ve talked about at Chattin’ meetings and just around the house/on the blog. There’s not too much new info, but I thought it was cool that it’s being brought up in mainstream media.

What do you think of the quote “I don’t want to be a piece of meat. I’m not going to eat a piece of meat”? What about the idea that these tactics work to attract men to becoming vegetarians or vegans? And how about the claim that groups like Ink not Mink or the the Lettuce Ladies mentioned before are “redefining beauty”?

Perez Hilton recently posted excerpts from this this under the title ‘Too Much Information.’ But really, it’s wonderful and more proof of why Margaret Cho is such an awesome woman. Also, her tip about using saliva as your own personal stain remover works, it’s pretty nifty!
