Joyce Carol Oates: One day meat-eating will be looked upon like slavery

First, author Joyce Carol Oates came for the guns, and we said nothing. (Actually, you on Twitter said quite a bit.) Now, she’s coming after meat, claiming that one day, our culture will look on meat-eating as it does on slavery.

Slavery analogies are tricky business, for some more than others. Joyce Carol Oates at one point compared the non-binding petition to deport CNN gun scold Piers “Musket” Morgan to “the blood bonding of lynching” and linked to photos of “crucified Negroes.”

Food for thought, or a bunch of baloney?
