This is how the comments thread for every article written about PETA plays out, says Nicole Cliffe.
1. This advertising campaign is offensive to women.
2. Clearly you have not read “The Sexual Politics of Meat.” Here are four paragraphs from it.
3. Women are not animals and dairy farming is not rape.
4. Um, obviously women are animals. We’re all animals.
5. METACOGNITION! Intellect. Patterns. The pyramids.
6. Cameron Diaz’s niece is dumber than a pig, says Cameron Diaz!
7. Bacon is yum. I eat bacon whenever I see a vegetarian post on a message board. Sometimes I make myself throw up so I can eat the bacon twice.
8. Bacon is the Holocaust. Isaac Bashevis Singer quotation.
9. Israel perpetrates its own Holocaust daily against the Palestinians.
It goes on. Read the whole list. It’s hilarious.
