Hi! I will be back at the end of March <3

Hey, sorry for the unannounced mini-hiatus. My childhood dog companion declined recently and died today, so I’ve been a mess. I’ll hopefully be back on Tumblr and replying to messages and all that soon.

More than half of all LGBT related deaths in 2012 were trans women and people on this site are worried about “cisphobia”

i need to reblog this twice

The wings of ~312,500,000 dead baby birds will be eaten today to celebrate the Superbowl.

And boy were they delicious, drenched in buffalo sauce and served with ranch and bleu cheese dip.

Wow, it’s just really sad…

Oh no I’ve seen how some of them are raised. I’ve watched the movies, the videos, read the articles, everything. And I’m all for animal rights and humane treatment. Which I why all of my food is free range and organic.

And I’m not anti-vegan, I’m anti-psycho posing under the guise of a vegan, animal rights activist.

It’s great that you care about animal rights and animals being treated well!

I’d encourage you to check out this website to learn about how labels like “free range” and “organic” are misleading caring people like you.

This recent Consumer Reports—”an expert, independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to work for a fair, just, and safe marketplace for all consumers and to empower consumers to protect themselves”—article also has a rundown on these confusing labels.

I’d encourage you to consider why you do not want animals to be treated badly, and then from there why you’d still feel okay about paying for them to be killed.

Wow, it’s just really sad that you feel the need to reblog so many anti-vegan (i.e. pro- animal abuse) posts. I’d like to think that if you knew personally any of the animals you are supporting the killing of, or learned a little bit about how the raising of animals for human food is fucking up the environment and human health, you’d at least take veganism more seriously, if not explore it as an option for yourself.

But, as they say, the need to glamorize and absurdly defend something previously taken by past generations as just a part of life reflects “rising anxieties” as more people realize the wrongs of the animal exploitation industries.

lisaquestions:

So this is Piers Morgan’s response to Janet Mock’s critical reaction to the way he framed his interview with her. Several other tweets are at the end of this buzzfeed article about Janet Mock.
So what we have here is a cisgender white man showing his true colors when a trans woman of color (actually two trans women of color, since Laverne Cox was with Janet when the interview aired) objects to the way the interview was framed, by saying Janet “used to be a man” and that she “was a boy until she turned 18,” and obsessing over her relationships and disclosures to the men she’s dated and her anatomy and when she’s had surgery and not talking about the trans women of color’s lived realities. 
So tomorrow night (or rather, later tonight since it’s after midnight for me) we’ll get to see a cisgender white man with a rather far reaching media platform have a go at a black trans woman because she didn’t show the proper amount of deference and gratitude about the way the interview was framed.
Toni D’orsay has a better post on this, but that tweet above has been pissing me off since I saw it. The sheer arrogance of this man. It’s not about him being treated in a “disgraceful manner.” It’s about who dared to challenge him.

"sport hunting" is literally the most disgusting thing. like it’s actually a bunch of people (usually white men) going into the woods to kill animals for fun…???
