It was honor, privilege, and an invitation I couldn’t pass on when Jeff Nguyen, at Deconstructing Myths, offered me voice to his guest blogger series, Mic Check. This was my opportunity to represent a personal view of the relationship between animal and human oppression to an audience who share similar social and political assessments as I. Jeff is, by the way, a swell guy. I’m eternally grateful to have made his acquaintance. He’s a superb writer, a man of exceptional intelligence, wit, and understanding. So without further ado I present to you my Mic Check and welcome you to join the discussion.
