So will rape culture. If we can tie up a cow an forcefully impregnate her, steal her child and her milk, we will never stop rape and rape culture.
You cannot call yourself a feminist and consume dairy products.
Moreover, you can’t go around claiming you have the right to exploit someone else’s body while trying to call yourself a feminist. Exhibiting absolutely no regards for someone else’s body autonomy and freedom while demanding your own is the epitome of hypocrisy.
Omni- I could probably be vegetarian, but I just love cheese too much. Vegan- I definitely couldn’t be vegetarian otherwise I probably would be, but I justify my minor addiction caused by small levels of morphine in milk because my taste buds dictate my moral philosophies. Who cares if it’s unnatural to take the breast milk of another mammal, especially after infancy when milk is no longer needed by the body to produce fat? Who cares if mother cows are kept continually pregnant by farmers jamming their hands into their vaginas and artificially inseminating them in order to produce milk for a child that is stolen from them moments after birth. It just tastes so wonderful.
Omni- What do you eat? Vegan- In all my years on this planet I have yet to learn what is edible besides flesh and bodily secretions.
Omni- What about free-range? Vegan- What about living creatures that are kept as property under undefined industry standards that in many cases are little to no difference than factory farms?
It’s obviously an estimate and doesn’t include a large portion of animals that are being killed for other purposes such as vivisection and animal testing, animal shelters, bloodsports, entertainment, clothing, and so on. All the more reason why I’m so damn sick of non-vegans. This is what you’re taking part in. This is what you’re supporting. Stop being a mindless drone and do something about it.
“You do the thing that is responsible for not only both of our lives but collectively our entire species and many of the species of life I can think of right now. Not only that, but you do this act often. And you like it.”

Except procreation is gross. Fornication all the way.
“Let’s examine this:
Miss is a word for a woman that has not been married.
Mrs. is an abbreviation of the word Mistress, used as a title for a woman that is married or widowed.
Ms. is a title used for a woman whose marital status is unknown or irrelevant (as in business).
The letters Ms. are not an abbreviation of a word, they are an amalgamation drawn from the letters of Miss and Mrs.
On the other hand, a man is just a mister (Mr.)
You see men don’t have to determine their sexual availability like women.”—

People on the street corner sell dogs all the time! Here in Atlanta guys be selling Pit Bulls in the grass parking lot at Wal-Mart. PETA Go get a life it’s not he’s killing dogs or Fighting them. He’s giving them to good homes.
Hahahaha. Good homes?! Pretty sure Chris Brown is selling them to profit off of them and that’s it. He doesn’t give a damn about the dogs. If he was doing something for the sake of giving dogs good homes, he’d be promoting the adoption of pit bulls in shelters and rescues. There are already millions of homeless pit bulls pouring out of shelters everywhere.
Also, the fact that some people do something in a Wal-Mart parking lot does not make something ethical. I’m pretty sure if we used what happens in Wal-Mart parking lots as a basis for what behavior is or isn’t okay, we’d all be fucked.
Every dog born is another dog who just lost a chance at being adopted. People who buy and breed pit bulls are not in it for the best interest of the dogs, they are either A) selfish and want to gain income from exploiting dogs or B) they are buying puppies to raise for fighting and/or bait dogs.
Chris Brown can go eat shit and die. So can every other breeder.
I hate fat shamers, I hate rape apologists, I hate that I have to hide my sexuality, I hate that I make people uncomfortable, I hate relying on other people to make me happy, I hate that I’m the only one who loves my body, I hate being too sad to be productive, I hate that people think because I’m open about my sexuality that I’m only looking for sex and not a partnership, I hate today.
I hate everyday lately for these reasons and more.
In light of recent protests and videos showcasing despicable patterns of police brutality, Tumblr has exploded with posts tagged “ACAB” and, without missing a beat, just as many people have come out of the woodwork defending cops. It seems that for every post saying all cops are bastards, there are three saying they had a cop friend or their parent is a cop or they cite incidents where a cop helped them as a defense for law enforcement in its entirety. I’m going to explain as well as I can why cops are not your friends and why, despite knowing a cop who didn’t mace you for no reason, all cops are bastards.
First, what you need to understand is that justice and law enforcement are two entirely separate concepts. Law enforcement is just that; enforcement of the law. Any person, especially anyone who paid attention in 4th grade history, knows that just because something is law does not make it just. Slavery in America wasn’t just, the oppression of women in America wasn’t just and this trend holds true today. When a person enforces the law, they are not serving the interest of the people, they are serving the interests of the people who made the laws and it’s no surprise that the interests of the ones making the laws are often entirely perpendicular to the rights of the people. Just or unjust, cops enforce the law. If the ethics or morality of the person behind the gun interfere with the upholding of unjust laws, that person is removed from that position and ensures that any internal opposition to the law is stomped out, keeping the tools of the state completely in line with the state’s definition of justice. The second a cop tries to not be a bastard, they are no longer a cop.
The fact is, cops are not individuals capable of discerning between right and wrong. Cops are tools of the state and nothing more. When one cop does one good thing, that’s not being a good cop, it does not make the position itself acceptable and it sure as shit isn’t a cop “doing his job”. That is the simple act of not being a shitty person. Contrarily, cases of police brutality are more candid looks into what the position actually is and that is to enforce a perversion of justice that favors the state by any means, including the complete demolition of individual citizens.
The videos floating around Tumblr show exactly what I’m talking about. The cops in those videos are not serving the interest of the people. The interest of the people is what is being smothered. Those cops, regardless of whether or not they want to enforce those laws, are enforcing those laws by any means necessary and at the direct expense of innocent civilians. So when the mayor of a city orders the NYPD to “contain” the non-violent protesters on Wall Street and does nothing to quell what is clearly police brutality (except in cases where video evidence is overwhelmingly against the officer), we see with absolute certainty that all cops are, without question, bastards.
That is the most succinct explanation I can provide. If anyone wants to add anything for clarification, feel free.
New vegan here! I find you insanely inspiring in many ways. Is there any advice/info that you can give to people new to the movement?
Aww, congrats! And thank you so much. :D I’m not sure why, but that’s so sweet of you.
Hm, I think that for me the hardest part of going vegan was adjusting to my frustration with almost everyone around me who failed to understand why veganism was important and the people who berated my veganism (and still do to this day). The only difficult part of being vegan is coping with the shitty society we live in where you’ll start noticing that animal exploitation is absolutely everywhere and so many people couldn’t care less about anything more than themselves. It gets maddening. I’d say try to branch out and find some other vegan friends/contacts in the area or try to find other vegans you can talk to on here. Having a vegan tumblr community to feel connected to and reminding you that you’re not the only one who cares honestly made a world of difference for me. It still does. You guys don’t even know, I’d have gone insane long ago without my tumblr vegans.
Also, don’t beat yourself up over mistakes at the beginning, or not realizing something wasn’t vegan. It’s happened before and it still happens every once in a while to all of us. It’s not about absolute perfection, it’s about making the best effort you physically can and always learning from it.
Oh, and most of all, if you can — be active about it. Go volunteer at animal shelters, sanctuaries, or rehabilitation centers. Go to demonstrations or protests, and if you can’t do that, just educating others around you on why veganism is so crucial makes a difference. Take part in direct action if and when you can. Go help animals in any way you can possibly think of because they need us.
You can feel free to talk to me off of anon, as well. If you have any questions or ever just want someone to talk to, you can message me whenever. :)
“But most of all, stop thinking that what people so loathingly refer to as the “friendzone” is some sort of purgatory women put “nice guys” into. My friendship is not a crappy consolation prize that you’re left with if I deny you a sexual relationship – and my body is not your reward for good behavior.”—Taylor Callobre, The “Good Guy” Myth
I mean, I know my opinion doesn't change yours but I'm completely pro fitspo. I have an extra blog that just reblogs posts of yummy healthy food, lean bodies with muscle definition and exercises. I'm also out of shape and am overweight. I look at it as motivation to be fit. I use it as a reminder that I need to be healthy. But I get what youre saying how it's like thinspo, but when I go through that tag it's always fasting and whatnot. Thats just my two cents c:
Your URL contains the word “faggot.”
Everything you say is irrelevant.
LOL THEY CHANGED THEIR URL AFTER I CALLED THEM OUT. I always win.
