Vegan activists are trying to shame California f
eminists into giving up eggs with a bizarre new billboard.
YOUR THOUGHTS? @peta billboard along Oakland Rd. and 101 in San Jose: “Face it- you can’t claim to be a feminist and still eat eggs. Eggs and dairy are a product of the abuse of females.” Your thoughts? Tweet @ me. Your responses could make the 11 p.m. broadcast. #abc7now pic.twitter.com/pSFBVTTvkA— Amanda del Castillo (@AmandaABC7) December 1, 2018
According to Byrne, PETA thought the women of San Jose would be receptive to the billboard because their city has the highest median female income in the country.
"We felt this would be a place where there are strong, thoughtful women who would be receptive to this message about not exploiting females of other species," she said.
In the #MeToo era, such thinking would seem to be in keeping with the concept of "intersectionality," a recent addition to progressive dogma that sees all forms of human oppression as connected
But not everyone is ready to crack. Cognitive psychologist Steven Pinker has expressed skepticism that human rights and animal rights are inevitably intertwined.
