The Woman Animalized-What's Your Cut?


It's 20 years since the Sexual Politics of Meat was published, yet it is still as relevant as ever...

This month sees the 20th anniversary reissue of Carol J Adams's The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory, a book that Lady Gaga may or may not have consulted before recently deciding to don a dress apparently made of meat. The reissue is timely for another reason, too: fashion's current obsession with models posing with animals certainly makes Adams's claim sound less outlandish than it might appear.

Lady Gaga's statement about her meat dress – "If we don't stand up for what we believe in, we don't fight for our rights, pretty soon we're gonna have as much rights as the meat on our bones" – hints at a link between oppression and meat eating (though Gaga linked her fashion statement to gay rights not feminism). Adams indicated her disapproval of Gaga's stunt in a Twitter message: "Lady Gaga wearing meat, part of a trend in 'fashion' (taking a chapter from pornography) reinscribes woman = meat/flesh right from slaughter", though Gaga's not-entirely-original-although-perhaps-that's-the-point fashion gesture might equally be seen as a critique of the way women are "carved up" to fit certain perceptions, and how celebrity culture, and celebrities, are there to be consumed, not unlike a hamburger.
