Fifty Shades of Oppression: Unexamined Sexualized Violence against Women and Other AnimalsAnimal Cruelty and Abuse
AbstractThis article examines a chicken cookbook that parodies a popular pornography novel “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Applying Carol J. Adams’ theory of intersecting oppression, I argue that the cookbook exemplifies the sexual objectification of women and Nonhuman Animals. The trivialization of violence against women and other animals also exemplifies rape culture, speciesism, and misogyny.
