Description

The way they attempt to re-think the link between the 'human' and the 'animal', and how those two are structured not only along speciecist but also racial lines.

Yet a refusal to back down from the conversation permeates these lovely, thoughtful essays by Aph and Syl Ko.Each chapter explores feminism, race, and animal rights from a different angle, and the overall book brings everything together in a path forward that I wasn't expecting. There is seemingly nothing worse for an activist than being introduced to a new perspective or theory that challenges the way you've been doing things. Society has a very vivid idea of what a "human" is, and as such it can justify anything "below" that as an "animal". The authors mention how it came out during the Rodney King trial that Los Angeles public officials in the justice system routinely used the acronym N.

In Aphro-ism, we go beyond this question and move focus to what Aph and Syl see as the real problem, and a “far more interesting point”. Un libro spettacolare che amplia la discussione sulla questione animale facendo un parallelismo con il razzismo. Rather, the people he encountered saw themselves in a deep relationship with the surrounding plants, animals, bodies of water and so on. The phrase "we are all animals" seems to be the result of trying to "de-glamorize" the human for the sake of elevating the animals.

Our commitments to eating non-human animals ensures businesses such as McDonald’s, Burger King, Five Guys, etc. They sound more like sisters working through their own ideas, sharing their ideas, and asking you to join them. The distance that we place between ourselves and nature that allows us to be amazed is also what gives us permission to treat the environment as an object to be exploited.
