'The Sexual Politics of Meat', The Cowley Club, 12 London Road, Brighton (UK), Wed 22nd Jan 7pm

Free/Donation.

A talk and slideshow by Carol J. Adams, author of 'The Sexual Politics of Meat: A feminist-vegetarian critical theory'.

The slide show provides an analysis of the interconnected oppressions of sexism, racism, and speciesism by exploring the way popular culture presents images of race, gender, and species to further oppressive attitudes. It also suggests forms of resistance against the construction of individuals, human or non-human, as "meat."

Drawing upon images from popular culture, it answers the question: how does someone become a piece of meat? The slide show demonstrates how a trinity of interrelated forces (objectification, fragmentation, and consumption) impact our cultural and personal consciousness about women and animals.

Well, someone had to say it, although my first response to reading this was just the thought this sort of sums a lot lot my experiences in Brighton over the years.
