In this ludicrous op-ed from Julie Bindel writing in The Guardian, a clear, unmistakable, and shameless parallel is drawn between the “rights” of pet owners, and parents of human children. The semantic goal for Bindel in this piece? That pet owners should be allowed to to get paid time off from work to take care of their animals. Bindel states that it’s only fair since humans are afforded the same rights for their children.
I assume that whatever farcical animal-worshiping foolishness takes place in England can also be found in the United States. Of course. First World problems are tiresome and predictable across the pond.
Stick a fork in us; we’re done…
