Dog Breeding and…Black Slavery?
Posted by Jack Stephens on September 10, 2007
Zuzu, at Feministe, blogs about a post on Feministing in where blogger Jessica posted a video of her puppy and was attacked for it because the puppy was from a breeder, with commenter’s equating puppy breeding as a feminist issue as well being on par with slavery and the selling of Black slaves:
That’s just so willfully blindly privileged, and tin-eared, and utterly cruel, and racist all at the same time. But I suppose, given PETA’s history of racist and anti-Semitic ads, where images of black slaves and Jewish inmates at extermination camps were set alongside images of cattle going down a chute or chickens in battery cages, that this is not so uncommon an attitude among the animal-rights set.
