EJ has a draft up on his paper about Judith Butler and animals. It is entitled "Species Trouble", good title. Highly suggested read.
The UN says we need to move away from a diet of animal products, or else. As Erik Marcus points out, they never mention the words vegetarian or vegan.
I recently said something supportive of Michael Pollan, time to push back. He recently bashed feminists (again). As my brother aptly put it, this is just another piece of proof that for people like Pollan and Salatin this is fundamentally a conservative movement in liberal drag.
This Onion video about apes facing their mortality is truly funny. Though my guess is apes already know they are one day going to die.
And the best thing on the internet these days is Butler inspired feminist Hulk twitter feed. (h/t Feminist Philosophers) Here is an example:
HULK SMASH MASTER'S HOUSE! THEN HULK MELT DOWN MASTER'S TOOLS AND USE METAL TO MAKE ADORABLE LITTLE BASKET TO HANG ON FRONT OF HULK BIKE.
And another one:
HULK USE ALL-CAPS. HULK CHOOSE NOT TO IMPOSE HIERARCHY ON LANGUAGE. PLUS, BIG HULK FINGERS MAKE SHIFT-KEY PROBLEMATIC.
How can anyone not love that?
This post of links' music comes from my favorite album of 2009, Dead Man's Bones. This project was originally intended as a supernatural children's musical, and those roots are pretty obvious in the album it eventually became. Also, who knew that Ryan Gosling had such a super sexy singing voice? Here is "Lose Your Soul"
