Fifty Shades of Oppression: Unexamined Sexualized Violence against Women and Other Animals

Wrenn, Corey (2014) Fifty Shades of Oppression: Unexamined Sexualized Violence against Women and Other Animals. Relations. Beyond Anthropocentrism, 2 (1). pp. 135-139. ISSN 2283-3196.

Abstract

This 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.
