Well, kids, they’ve done it again:
In yet another winning piece of journalism, Vox’s Zack Beauchamp — yes, the Gaza Bridge guy — decided to probe one of the most important issues of our time: Whether domestic animals should get citizenship. To get to the bottom of this, he turned to an expert in the field:
What if domestic animals — pets such as dogs and cats as well livestock like cows and chickens — were granted citizenship rights? That may sound like a crazy question, but Canadian philosopher Will Kymlicka thinks it’s a critically important one.
Kymlicka, a professor at Queen’s University, is a well-regarded figure in modern political philosophy. He’s also the author, along with writer Sue Donaldson, of Zoopolis, a book making the case for animal citizenship.
One thing he is not, however, is familiar with is this whole “milk” thing.
We’re not entirely sure. But how fitting that Vox would seek him out for a story!
Yeah, well fact-checking just isn’t very high on Vox’s list of priorities.
There’s only one thing left to do now: Milk Vox’s stupidity for all it’s worth:
We hope so!
