?Checking privilege in the animal kingdom?: Biologists investigate animal ?inequality?
?Squirrel privilege is real.? ?Checking Privilege in the Animal Kingdom.? ?Even Hermit Crabs Have Wealth Inequality.?
These headlines hail from Salon and The New York Times, respectively, and represent a growing trend among scholars and the media to tackle animal ?inequality? ? and also argue humans can learn important lessons about income inequality and privilege from such studies.
?Inequality is a threat to our social fabric, but it?s not just a human problem,? argued the World Economic Forum in January in a piece that connected human and non-human inequality.
Headlined ?Inequality is not confined to humans. Animals are divided by privilege, too,? it was based on an essay published in Behavioral Ecology in December 2021, an essay which helped spawn a spate of recent articles on the topic.
So we need to make animals PC as well?
