Singer Discusses Rights

Our Hen House co-founder Jasmin Singer discusses gay rights and animal rights in The Scavenger.

Jasmin Singer, the co-founder and executive director of Our Hen House, recently wrote a thought-provoking piece for online media outlet The Scavenger. In the piece, Singer, a vegan lesbian, discusses the close connection between gay rights and animal rights, saying, “It perplexes me that anyone who has fought for the rights of people to express themselves sexually in the way that is right for them, can be part of a system that undermines so completely the sexuality and reproduction of living, breathing, sentient beings.” She also touches on our privilege and responsibility for animals and the idea that oppression toward humans is indistinguishable from oppression toward animals.
