I bet you won't be surprised to hear who was behind the greatly anticipated Pig Adventure opening at Fair Oaks Farms, a factory farm pig breeding Disneyland marketed to kids and their parents.
The National Pork Board, one of the industry's key trade groups, has a vested interest in what is being promoted as the nation's most important agritourism destination.
The main propaganda message is "The Miracle of Life." But as writer Ashley Capps points out, "Imagine that the pigs are restrained women who have no say in what is being done to their bodies. What makes it right to sexually violate other animals if it's wrong to sexually violate other humans?"
