Why are Academics Insane? By James Reed

     There is no end to the amount of bs that comes out of the universities, and in fact these institutions of ecological horror should be closed down solely because of their carbon footprint! I mean to say, if people have to give up meat to save the planet, then surely, we can give up on these evil institutions?

“A paper currently being promoted by a New York university calls on society to consider the rampant “sexual exploitation” of dairy cows by the milk industry in order to “fully fight gendered oppression.” Specifically, the author compares cattle insemination to "rape" and the milking of cows to "sexual abuse." “the dairy industry is a host for sex-based discrimination"

Titled “Readying the Rape Rack: Feminism and the Exploitation of Non-Human Reproductive Systems,” the paper was published Friday in a journal called Dissenting Voices, which is published and edited by the Women’s and Gender Studies program at the College at Brockport State University of New York. The published piece aims at discussing the “sexual exploitation of non-human bodies, specifically dairy cows.” The author notes that “as a vegan and animal rights activist,” she feels compelled to reveal the “feminist aspects of animal agriculture,” a topic she says is unfortunately “under-researched,” but is nonetheless important because “the same way women’s health has been at  stake for years, a dairy cow’s reproductive system has been poked and prodded.” According to the publication, “the dairy industry is a host for sex-based discrimination,” and a “site where sexual assault and objectification based on biological makeup are highly prevalent but ignored as we choose to neglect non- humans with whom we share a planet.” The paper argues that “in order to fully fight gendered oppression,” society must also address the plight of dairy cows, which it asserts are “still subjects to sex-based discrimination and violence,” despite their voices being “not always lifted or comprehensible.” The piece begins by first attacking the widely contested notion that cow’s milk is even at all beneficial for humans, pointing to the government-funded “Got Milk?” campaign and the questionable motivations behind it.

     Got that farmers: it is all about rape according to the city living feminists. Anyway, speaking of cow’s milk, something the inner-city elite eschew for their soy boy drinks, plant milk turns out to be much worse for the environment than cow’s milk:

“If you are drinking plant-based "milks" because you think they are better for the environment, think again says a Fonterra scientist. Nielsen Scantrack data shows sales of alternative milks have taken off in the past two years, with 25 per cent of total market share of all milk categories. In 2017 Kiwis spent $52 million on them, but that has risen to $144m in the last 12 months, with almond milk the most popular, followed by soya. The value of the alternative milk market is growing at 7.6 per cent a year, while cow milk value is flat. But milk substitutes such as soy, almond, oat and rice have double the greenhouse gas emissions of Fonterra's milk produced in New Zealand, when compared on the basis of their nutrient content. Fonterra said fake milks were also inferior nutritionally to cow's milk and cost more. Milk protein was up to 30 per cent higher in nutritional quality than the quality of the highest scoring plant proteins and over three-fold higher in nutritional quality than the worst scoring plant proteins. The top scoring plant protein is soy at 28.1 grams per litre, but macadamia (6.1g/l), rice (7.4g/l) and almond (8.1g/l) rate much lower. Cow's milk produces 32g per litre of protein.”

     Sure, we all know that cow’s milk, is the original and best, just like good old red meat off the bone. So, let’s pour a cold big white one and give a toast to feminists, vegans and other people starving themselves to death! Then we should hoe into a big diner of steak and eggs.
