What do the gender pay gap, female genital mutilation, and cheese all have in common? According to PETA, they’re all sexist.
On the topics of clear and extreme sexism, I’ll give you female genital mutilation, which is about 47 kinds of sexist. Of course, it’s also the one thing on that list that you won’t hear the left complaining much about – they’re much too busy praising FGM promoter Linda Sarsour.
But I won’t give you the gender wage gap, which has been debunked time and again forever and ever and ever. Nor will I give you cheese, which is delicious.
But not to PETA. According to them, cheese is sexist because it comes from milk, which comes from pregnant dairy cows, who are “raped” to provide us with scrumptious two-year aged sharp cheddar.
“As feminists, we’re working to put more women in office and in corner offices. We fight for equal pay, tax-free feminine hygiene products, an end to sexual harassment, funding for women’s sports, and streets safe enough for us to walk alone…We work to end sex trafficking, slavery, genital mutilation, and “honor killings.’” PETA states. “We rail against sexism in all its many forms—except, perhaps, when it comes to what’s on our plates.”
“Can food really be sexist? Yes, when it’s the product of imprisonment, rape, reproductive control, kidnapping, and abuse.”
The animal rights group takes issue with the fact that female dairy cows are artificially impregnated so they’ll produce milk, complaining, “The mothers are not allowed to nurse their babies. Instead, their infants are stolen from them, usually within hours of birth.”
“After their calves have been taken away from them, the mother cows are hooked up to milking machines two or more times a day,” the group’s lament continues. “Through the use of intense milking regimes and sometimes drugs, their reproductive systems are exploited and they’re forced to produce much more milk than they normally would.”
According to PETA, this practice is just as sexist and repugnant as a screaming seven-year-old African girl being held down while the village grandma snips off her most sensitive genital area with a rusty serrated razor blade, or a Pakistani teenager being publicly raped as punishment for the crimes of her male relative. To PETA, a cow being kept for milk is as horrific and hate-worthy as little Yazidi girls being sold into sex slavery by a terrorist group who wants to pass her around large groups of perverted middle-aged men like a homemade bong.
Sex trafficking is revolting. Female genital mutilation and Sharia-approved rapes are revolting.
Cheese, on the other hand, is delicious. In fact, the only good thing that could possibly come from banning cheese is that it would piss off Kim Jung Un, who reportedly eats so much of the stuff that his cankles break in his high-heeled shoes.
But, if you're just as concerned that farm animals are not being granted personal autonomy over their own sex lives as you are about gender-based human slavery, don’t worry – PETA says they’ve got “vegan mentors” to help you through your angst.
