Zombie Law School and ZRC Updates

| February 1, 2014

I have started the second semester of my second year at law school, and am busy learning things to advance the cause of Zombie Rights (I hope). I have taken all my required Constitutional Law classes, which are of obvious import, but everything could have implications for the Differently Animated, at least to my so-far-relatively-inexperienced [...]

‘Birth of the Living Dead’ To Document Genesis of Romero Anti-Zombie Stereotypes

| August 18, 2013

‘Night of the Living Dead’ is one of those cultural touchstones that is so big that people are unaware of just how big it is. I can’t say how many times I’ve been at a convention for the ZRC, discussing Zombies and their rights in society, only to have someone tell me all about how [...]

‘ZombieLab’ Explores the Science, Social Status and Legal Rights of the Differently Animated

| January 28, 2013

We have often lamented the brusque treatment the Differently Animated receive from today’s scientists and scholars here at the ZRC Blog. It seems like Zombies exist only to be exploited by the ivory tower, only discussed in terms of eradication and control, not reason and understanding. Much as the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ is used to promote [...]

‘Zombie Planet’ Sadly Not A Planet Inhabited By Zombies (That We Know Of)

| January 9, 2013

In a fairly benign example of ‘Don’t Use the Zed Word’, the well-documented phenomenon of calling everything under the sun ‘Zombie’ lately, Undead or not, we have now a ‘Zombie planet’: Fomalhaut b is a giant alien planet that is nearly three times the mass of Jupiter. It was the first alien planet ever directly [...]

Discovery Channel Teams Up with Dr. Schlozman to Peddle Zombie Apocalypse Fears

| December 8, 2012

Well, this is truly a disheartening example of media pandering: Discovery Channel has ordered the documentary special Zombie Apocalypse, which examines whether a walking dead-style invasion is actually possible and introduces a quartet of people from various backgrounds who are readying themselves, just in case. Sigh… Really, Discovery Channel? You’re pushing Living Supremacism on an [...]

Finally, the ZRC and the ZRS Agree on Something

| June 6, 2012

We don’t get along well with the Anti-Zombie ‘researchers’ at the Zombie Research Society. As you might imagine. Still, The Zombie Rights Campaign is behind them 100% on this one: Check out this laughable attempt to update Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” dance in an Indian movie called Donga. The clip and film aren’t knew, but it’s [...]

More ‘Zombie’ Fungus Stories

| May 5, 2012

Sigh. The mainstream press really won’t let up with this ‘call anything we don’t like or find creepy a Zombie’ routine. Case in point, the ‘Zombie ant’ saga continues as researchers find that the previous, allegedly ‘Zombie’ making fungus is itself parasitized by another fungus: For the first time, researchers have discovered how an ant [...]

Again with Bashing Zombies to do Disaster Preparedness?!

| April 27, 2012

When will the Disaster-Preparedness-Industrial-Complex realize it isn’t cool to defame Zombies to promote being ready for disasters? SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. – What would happen if there was an outbreak of smallpox, flu or anthrax? The response would be the same even if zombies attacked. More than two dozen students at the University of Rhode Island [...]

Texas Tech Has ‘Humans vs Zombies’ Problem

| April 8, 2012

Naturally the ZRC disagrees with a great deal about the ‘Humans vs Zombies’ nerf game of tag that’s sweeping college campuses across the nation, starting with the title, which clearly promotes the nonsensical idea that Zombies are not people. Which, clearly, they are. Worse, it fosters an antagonistic, Anti-Undead attitude and a sort of unpleasant [...]

Horrorhound: Souvenirs and Research Materials

| March 28, 2012

Going to a convention for the ZRC isn’t just about outreach, of course – we also use these opportunities to gather vital intelligence on the Anti-Zombie movement, its propaganda and popularity, as well as search for other Zombie Friendly products and potential allies. We really had a great haul in this regard from Horrorhound Columbus: [...]
