I am very amused when people tell vegans to “get off their high horse”…like not only would vegans not be on a horse but we certainly wouldn’t get them high

5 Reasons Why Ricky Gervais is the Ultimate Animal Lover

5 reasons Ricky Gervais is not even an animal lover at all: He eats fucking animals, he’s speciesist, he isn’t vegan, he’s a hypocrite, he only loves some animals and pays for others to be tortured and killed. He’s the ultimate hypocrite.

So sick and tired of seeing Ricky Gervais touted as some kind of mainstream animal activist. He’s not even a vegetarian, let alone a vegan, and a few tweets asking to stop animal testing aren’t going to convince us that he’s any different from the billions of carnists content to wallow in cognitive dissonance.

1. When a woman assumes that all men are rapists, the worst she has the power to do on a systematic level is stay away from men. Unless you think men are entitled to attention from every woman they see, no one is harmed by that.

2. The belief that men are only creepy when they’re unattractive is just a lie created by men as an excuse to be creepy and convince themselves that they’re doing nothing wrong.

3. Women have to assume that all men are rapists, because if a woman trusts a man to not rape her and he rapes her, everyone will blame her for not being careful enough. So if you’re offended by women believing that all men are rapists, your first priority should be stopping society from blaming victims.

Posts saying vegans should spend less time posting smoothies/raw food/recipes in the vegan tag and more time posting about animal rights make me sad because out in the real world we’re hardly ever sanctioned to talk about things we really enjoy — like smoothies and amazing vegan recipes — and now you’re trying to shame people on tumblr too? Everyone runs their own blog — let’s not hate on people who just wanna look at some delicious vegan food.

REALLY just wanna take this chance to remind the people who follow me to not kill/trap opossums if they’re in your yard, and do not call animal control! Seriously.

  1. Opossums are literally 100% BIOLOGICALLY INCAPABLE of carrying rabies. Their body temperature is too cool to incubate it properly.
  2. Opossums are actually quite gentle and NOCTURNAL, so if they’re roaming, they’ve probably gotten lost, been injured, and are looking for a place to hide.
  3. Young opossums tend to try to climb into garbage cans when they’re starving. This is because THEY ARE LITERALLY STARVING. Don’t fucking shoot them or hit them with things because you wanna be some fucking macho top-of-the-food-chain cocksucker.
  4. Mama possums are amazing mothers and if you encounter an “aggressive” opossum, it’s probably because she’s got babies hanging off her nipple and she’s freaking out. They’re clumsy. Sometimes they don’t hear you coming and  you catch each other off guard.
  5. Wanna lure an opossum off of your property? You can set up a box with some greens and cat kibble in it, hide it well, and lure them out that way. They’re actually quite harmless and keep other predators away. they eat lotsa gross stuff.
  6. Opossum mamas who get hit by cars often still have their helpless babies attached to them. Possums get a bad rep and people say they are “the dumbest animal”, but they are incredible creatures who have been around since the days of fucking dinosaurs so treat them well, okay?

Aww!!!

WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE THEY ARE NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS

THEY ARE SAYING YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS THAT COME FROM OPPRESSION

THIS IS NOT A DIFFICULT CONCEPT

Only one antibiotic is shown to make hormonal birth control less effective. That is rifampin, a special medication used to treat tuberculosis. The brand names for rifampin include Rifadin and Rimactane. Other antibiotics do not make hormonal birth control less effective.

The thing about being anti-abortion is that for most people, it is about making easy choices.

Once you’ve defined terminating a pregnancy (which is, by the way, the most likely natural outcome of a pregnancy) as “killing a child”, it really is a no-brainer. “Should I be for baby killing, or against baby killing?” is not a question most people need to ask themselves, or stop and think about.

Even better, this bit of mental gymnastics inexplicably leaves millions of people and the laws of many countries in favor of “baby killing”, which means there are that many million people you can feel better than.

You haven’t done anything. You have not improved anyone’s life. You have not made the world a better place. You have not helped any living soul on the planet, but already, you are better than millions of people.

And if you decide to “do something” about abortion?

Carry a sign. 

Put some pennies in a box somewhere.

Reblog out of context, mislabeled, or misleading pictures of babies, fetuses, and parts of pregnant bodies.

Now you’re a superhero. Now you’re a crusader. Now you’re fighting the neverending battle for truth, justice, and precious little babies at Christmas.

Of course, if you really believed deep down inside that millions of actual babies are literally being murdered all the time, you wouldn’t be putting pennies in boxes, would you? It’s convenient to your self-esteem to be able to tell yourself that the stakes are as high as the lives of babies and the soul of a nation, but it’s convenient to your lifestyle that you know, deep down inside, that they really aren’t.

If you’ve got a lot of time and passion, you can go down to a reproductive health clinic (where there may or not actually even be any abortions performed, and where there are certainly a myriad of other necessary health care services being performed) and scream misogynistic insults at anybody who braves your gauntlet.

Maybe she’s getting a pap smear.

Maybe she’s getting an ultrasound for the baby she plans on carrying to term.

Maybe she’s going to terminate a pregnancy she really wanted, but can’t have.

Maybe she’s going to have an already dead fetus removed from her body.

Maybe she’s going to have an abortion because she’s pregnant and doesn’t want to be.

It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter to you. All that matters is sides: you’re on the right side, she’s on the wrong side. And you get to engage in the most vile impulses that wrack the human brain: shouting, screaming epithets, hurling accusations, attacking the vulnerable, reducing another human being to a mass of tears and convulsions and you can do it guilt-free because you have constructed a reality where this person in front of you, whatever might actually be going through in their life, is a proxy responsible for the deaths of millions of tiny precious little babies and you, you are the fearless Soldier of Good who will save them.

Yeah.

Being anti-abortion is all about the easy choices.

That’s why you don’t hear about many “pro-lifer” who decides to bravely die rather than terminate a life-endangering pregnancy, trusting in God to decide whether parent and/or baby shall life.

Oh, yes, they’ll find people who make the decision to carry on with pregnancies that are high-risk, and they laud these people as proof of the lies of the pro-choice movement… never mind that there are many pro-choice people who make the same decision. That’s the nature of choice.

I’m not talking about high-risk pregnancies. I’m talking about situations where it’s not even a risk any more. Where are the martyrs to life? I can show you pro-life women who went and had an abortion when it was convenient for them, not even medically necessary. And it’s not hard to find pro-lifers demanding that other people carry a diagnosed dead or fatal-to-the-parent fetus to term because “doctors can be wrong”. Where are the pro-lifers who make this choice for themselves?

When the wives of conservative politicians have an abortion to end an ectopic pregnancy or other similar condition, it gets reduced to “a medically necessary procedure” that’s certainly not an abortion, no, don’t call it that because if there are two things the pro-life movement is sure about it’s that abortion isn’t a medical procedure and that it is never necessary.

But anyone else undergoing the same procedure? That’s an abortion. And it’s wrong. 

Because the pro-life movement is about making easy choices and easy judgments. It’s convenient crusading. Invent an enemy so unconscionably horrific that you can’t help but look good and feel good opposing them, so widespread and close to home that you don’t have to give up your life at home to combat them, and so ultimately harmless that there is literally no risk to you in standing up to these horrible, bloodthirsty monsters.

But if it happens that you need an abortion, you’ll have one. Because you’ve been making the easy choices all along. And if you get pregnant and choose to keep it, in spite of… whatever… you tell yourself that’s a triumph against choice, when in fact it’s a triumph of choice.

why argue with carnists about veganism when you can get the same sensation by hitting your head against a brick wall
