A new genus of the fauxgressive species?

Sigh. Shit like this is, I think, a natural outgrowth of the Chicks Love a Vegetarian (and similar) way of outreach, in which my “pussy” is treated like a reward for good male behavior. While admittedly kinda sorta cute (zomg! fluffy baby chickies and hot boyz!!1!), it’s also kinda sorta sexist. Let’s not pretend for a second that “chick” isn’t slang for women, and that a rather obvious double entendre is at play here.

Of course, both are natural outgrowths of living in a patriarchy, so ultimately, IBTP.

    It’s an interesting contradiction. Veganism is in large part an outgrowth of anti-oppression premises taken to their logical conclusion, while the suggestion in “Go vegan for the pussy” merely restates one such oppressive assumption: taking the bodies of women is still the goal.
