April 22, 2013: Earth Day on Women's Magazine: Ecofeminism, Animal Rights and Factory Farming

Katie Cantral of Factory Farming Awareness Coalition


Did you know that factory farming has polluted over 35,000 miles of rivers in the US?

In this segment, Sharon Sobotta interviews Katie Cantral, Executive Director of the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition. 99% of animal products come from factory farms. Ten billion animals are raised every year in the US on factory farms. This method of raising animals is cruel to the animals, bad for the environment and a huge source of labor injustices. Katie says it takes 2000 gallons of water to raise a pound of beef and 35 gallons of water to raise a pound of vegetables. Chemicals used in the production of milk have been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer in women. Katie gives us an enlightened and empowering way to make a difference on all aspects of this important cause.

  1. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should not marry American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    I encourage ALL American men to NEVER MARRY American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

    -30 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs.
    -25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
    -85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
    -70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
    -60 percent of American women are fat, overweight, according to government statistics

    If you want to get married, find a nice foreign girl from Asia, or South America, or Russia/Eastern Europe. DO NOT MARRY AN AMERICAN WOMAN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

    Give American women the husband they deserve- NONE!

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
