“Bound Together Books and PM Press continue to try to prop up and foist veg*n antagonist Lierre Keith onto the radical community in the Bay Area. Today, at the 15th Annual San Francisco Anarchist Bookfair, where she was scheduled to be a featured speaker, Keith was served her just desserts for her obnoxious attacks on veg*ns in The Vegetarian Myth. She was pied in the middle of her speech in the main auditorium at the SF County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park.”
Assault is not the way to go, and yet I crack a tiny smile because in addition to being a veggie-hating loon, she’s also a trans-phobic loon affiliated with RadLesFes, which “is ‘unalterably opposed’ to 1) anyone, but specifically lesbians in the context of RadLesFes, who in the slightest endorse BDSM or pornography, and 2) trans people, specifically referring to all trans-related health interventions pejoratively as ‘mutilations’.”
Keith also claims to be an anarchist; when she was pied at the Anarchist Bookfair, though, she called the fucking cops.
