Welcome! I created this channel to talk about pro-intersectional justice, always making sure that humans and other animals are a part of that conversation. I also like to find cool activists and interview them about their work/ views/projects. Follow me on Facebook and say hi! https://www.facebook.com/aprivilegedvegan. xxx

On ‘Othering’ and Climate Change

What do systems of ‘othering’ have to do with climate change? “Othering” is another matrix through which to examine oppression. It reminds us why a pro-intersectional approach to ecological, economic, and social justice is fundamental: our fight for freedom must refuse all hierarchies that rank the relative value of living beings. Unfortunately, Naomi Klein does not consider speciesism as a system of ‘othering’. She hasn’t directly addressed the topic but does not advocate for a vegan diet/ lifestyle. Nonetheless, this video was inspired by her work on the othering of humans and climate change– I just took the concept and expanded it further. I just wanted to make that clear, and not risk attributing ideas to her that aren’t hers (for better or worst).
