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! 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). Follow me on Facebook!
