A ‘carnist’ farmer reviews a vegetarian book

review: Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows by raybowman on The Farmer Feeds Us All

Melanie Joy writes this book from a vegetarian perspective, but it’s not as preachy as you’d expect. Instead, Dr. Joy examines ideological and ethical viewpoints of both vegetarians and meat-eaters, which she labels carnists. It’s a bit of a pejorative, but I’ll cut her some slack on that.
