I am woman, hear me grumble

Good grief - I cannot believe the fuss surrounding Katie Couric, America's first woman to anchor a network news broadcast alone. And the fact that her network digitally altered a picture of her in one of its publications to make her appear 20lbs lighter.

What a joyous time to be a woman.

I have been investigating veganism, after reading the horror stories involving the amount of pus in milk due to 1 in 3 cows in this country having mastitis at any one time. That's something to think about, eh?

And that led me on to reading about one of the ethical arguments for veganism that is put forward by third-wave feminists - most livestock is female, kept in an extended post-partum state, used and objectified in the same way as women.
