Well it was quite a surprise to see two of my interests, food (about which I am obviously obsessed), and sex (which I am thinking a lot about these days since I am teaching a Human Sexuality class right now) come together in a New York Times article the other day. In the article "The Carrot some Vegans Deplore" Jesella describes the trend of using female sexuality to persuade people (particularly hamburger munching men) to consider going vegan/vegetarian. It strikes me as a pretty strange tactic, and almost desperate and contradictory in so many ways for a diet that is based, at least in part, on an ethical platform to use the objectification of women to manipulate or sell the idea veganism. I would love to hear other peoples thoughts on this!
