All exploitation of sentient beings is related

[C]ommodifying ourselves does not truly “empower us”. We can’t use sexist methods to further a social justice issue. All exploitation of sentient beings is related; we’re not going to end speciesism, the oppression of non-human animals simply because they are not human, without a firm commitment to ending sexism as well, and certainly not with the kind of attention-at-all-costs opportunism engaged in by certain activists at the expense of other oppressed groups.
