It's sick out there and getting sicker. The left is demented.


The journal of one New York university’s Women's and Gender Studies program has published a paper that insists that milking cows is comparable to "sexual abuse," "emotional trauma related to pregnancy," and "nonconsensual hormone treatments," according to Celine Ryan, writing for Campus Reform.

The paper, "Readying the Rape Rack: Feminism and the Exploitation of Non-Human Reproductive Systems," was included in Dissenting Voices, published and edited by the Women's and Gender Studies program at the College at Brockport State University of New York.

Ryan notes that the author, an intern for Brockport's Women's Studies Department, asserts that she must discuss the "under-researched" "feminist aspects of animal agriculture," adding, "the same way women’s health has been at stake for years, a dairy cow's reproductive system has been poked and prodded."

The author writes, "Throughout our lives, we are offered an idealized image of dairy cows where these animals graze on beautiful pastures, have room to sow and play, and are comforted in spacious areas in which to sleep. We are presented with images of a life well lived, but when it comes to the deaths of those same animals, the picture perfect story comes to a grim reality."

The paper continues, "The outdated stereotype about women being caretakers and most importantly child bearers remains consistent in the dairy industry, especially when we take into account the means through which these animals are exploited. A few brief examples include rape or sexual assault, nonconsensual hormone treatments, and emotional trauma related to pregnancy. Dairy cows are forcibly impregnated, or raped, in order to constantly produce milk for humans to consume."

You are making a thread about what some random person wrote in a student ejournal literally titled dissenting voices?

Why?

This represents “The left”, huh? Guess that means we can attribute every random incels 2000 word essay on how men should be assigned wives to “the right”?

WHAT WINGER SITE dug down and found this little jewel of intellectual feminist contemplation (or SERIOUS animal righters) from a no name college. YOU did NOT find this on your own.

Women's and gender studies (along with a few other courses) is another joke in academics. This is where the Eric Dyson's go to become prominent and find work on MSNBC

I decided to actually read the piece, and surprise surprise, it does not say what the OP and his buddies think it does.

It mostly talks about the forcible impregnating of dairy cows to produce milk and their terrible living conditions.
