As part of my ongoing exploration into male identity and its ties to consuming animals, I had the honor of interviewing one of the most respected thinkers on this, Carol Adams. Adams wrote "The Sexual Politics of Meat", published first in 1990, to explore the relationship between patriarchal values and meat eating by interweaving the insights of feminism, vegetarianism, animal defense, and literary theory. She also wrote "The Pornography of Meat", published in 2003, posing the question, "how does someone become a piece of meat?".
