human and animal is thoroughly breached. The last beachheads of uniqueness
have been polluted if not turned into amusement parks— language, tool use,
social behaviour, mental events, nothing really convincingly settles the separa-
tion of human and animal.” Haraway, Simians, Cyborgs and Women, 151.
