I’m back in Virginia for winterbreak, at least briefly. I was sleeping at my parent’s last night, in the upstairs living room. I know they have mice, I’d seen a couple in the basement. And I really like mice. So when I heard one in the kitchen I went to go look at it. And good thing I did, because apparently my parents put a glue trap on the kitchen counter (which wasn’t there earlier when I cooked dinner). I had seen a box of them on the counter and wrote a note on it about how using them was murder. BUt so this poor mouse was stuck in the glue. (more…)

There is a new book from AK Press by Bob Torres, Making A Killing: THe Political Economy of Animal Rights which seems like it is gonna be relevant to looking at the issue from a speciesism standpoint, and also in a broader sphere of ‘leftist’ politics. Says “contains key insights into the broad nature of domination, power, and hierarchy” also “explores intersections between human and animal oppressions in relation to the exploitative dynamics of capitalism” It comes out in Novemeber, I hope I have the time to read it.

Dunayer says that animal rights books garble their own message when their language communicates speciesism. She also criticizes the use of cutsey puns and cliches about animals, which make a serious matter a joking matter. She says that the act of treating animals and their plight not seriously is speciesist. (more…)
