High School Girl Meat Pies!

// 8 February 2008

Generally I see my vegetarianism as quite separate from my feminist politics. Not today. Sexual Politics of Meat eat your heart out:

Meat product manufacturer Ito Ham has taken the Japanese schoolgirl obsession to the next level by applying for the trademark rights to the word “High School Girl” (女子高生/Joshi-Kosei).

A pair of trademark applications (via the INPIT database) indicate that Ito Ham is planning a line of High School Girl® meat products, including meat pies, gyoza dumplings, pizza, curry and more.
