NICOLE IT'S KELLY YOUR TUMBLR IS THE CUTEST!!! omg i love your new backgroun. ps: the thing you just said about people telling you it's expensive is hilarious. if they aren't vegan and you are why then why do people think they know more about it? i dun get
hay girl! thank you! as you can tell I finally figured out this whole allow anon questions business.
I have no idea…it makes me facepalm all over the place.
I am over rape culture, rape mentality, rape pages on Facebook.
I am over the thousands of people who signed those pages with their real names without shame.
I am over people demanding their right to rape pages, and calling it freedom of speech or justifying it as a joke.
I am over people not understanding that rape is not a joke and I am over being told I don’t have a sense of humor, and women don’t have a sense of humor, when most women I know (and I know a lot) are really fucking funny. We just don’t think that uninvited penises up our anus, or our vagina is a laugh riot.
I am over how long it seems to take anyone to ever respond to rape.
I am over Facebook taking weeks to take down rape pages.
I am over the hundreds of thousands of women in Congo still waiting for the rapes to end and the rapists to be held accountable.
I am over the thousands of women in Bosnia, Burma, Pakistan, South Africa, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Haiti, Afghanistan, Libya, you name a place, still waiting for justice.
I am over rape happening in broad daylight.
I am over the 207 clinics in Ecuador supported by the government that are capturing, raping, and torturing lesbians to make them straight.
I am over one in three women in the U.S military (Happy Veterans Day!) getting raped by their so-called “comrades.”
I am over the forces that deny women who have been raped the right to have an abortion.
I am over the fact that after four women came forward with allegations that Herman Cain groped them and grabbed them and humiliated them, he is still running for the President of the United States.
And I’m over CNBC debate host Maria Bartiromo getting booed when she asked him about it. She was booed, not Herman Cain.
Which reminds me, I am so over the students at Penn State who protested the justice system instead of the alleged rapist pedophile of at least 8 boys, or his boss Joe Paterno, who did nothing to protect those children after knowing what was happening to them.
I am over rape victims becoming re-raped when they go public.
I am over starving Somalian women being raped at the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya, and I am over women getting raped at Occupy Wall Street and being quiet about it because they were protecting a movement which is fighting to end the pillaging and raping of the economy and the earth, as if the rape of their bodies was something separate.
I am over women still being silent about rape, because they are made to believe it’s their fault or they did something to make it happen.
I am over violence against women not being a #1 international priority when one out of three women will be raped or beaten in her lifetime — the destruction and muting and undermining of women is the destruction of life itself.
No women, no future, duh.
I am over this rape culture where the privileged with political and physical and economic might, take what and who they want, when they want it, as much as they want, any time they want it.
I am over the endless resurrection of the careers of rapists and sexual exploiters — film directors, world leaders, corporate executives, movie stars, athletes — while the lives of the women they violated are permanently destroyed, often forcing them to live in social and emotional exile.
I am over the passivity of good men. Where the hell are you?
You live with us, make love with us, father us, befriend us, brother us, get nurtured and mothered and eternally supported by us, so why aren’t you standing with us? Why aren’t you driven to the point of madness and action by the rape and humiliation of us?
I am over years and years of being over rape.
And thinking about rape every day of my life since I was 5-years-old.
And getting sick from rape, and depressed from rape, and enraged by rape.
And reading my insanely crowded inbox of rape horror stories every hour of every single day.
I am over being polite about rape. It’s been too long now, we have been too understanding.
We need to OCCUPYRAPE in every school, park, radio, TV station, household, office, factory, refugee camp, military base, back room, night club, alleyway, courtroom, UN office. We need people to truly try and imagine — once and for all — what it feels like to have your body invaded, your mind splintered, your soul shattered. We need to let our rage and our compassion connect us so we can change the paradigm of global rape.
There are approximately one billion women on the planet who have been violated.
ONE BILLION WOMEN.
The time is now. Prepare for the escalation.
Today it begins, moving toward February 14, 2013, when one billion women will rise to end rape.
Well obviously it only makes veg’s sad, because vegan’s actually DO something about their sadness and they don’t eat bacon, pork, etc. So how could omnivores legitimately care when their actions don’t reflect abstaining from animal products! Bottom line Omnivores ^^^ your lifestyle contributes to shit like this!
When you went to my page to reblog this, you must have missed the part that says “vegetarian”. But of course, I can’t legitimately care because I eat cheese.
I still find it very strange, unfortunate, ironic, etc that we can have arguments about individuals eating habits when so many people don’t get to eat at all. That aside though, I think most vegans are full of shit and need to step down off their high horse.
Also, this could just be a picture of a pig hanging out. Like with his bros or something.
OH really? I think it’s strange, unfortunate, and ironic that people don’t put enough focus on all their actions. Eating is something people do everyday, it has a huge impact on our environment, and life. We are what we eat. Animal consumption is 17% of all carbon emissions THAT’S A BIG DEAL. Veganism isn’t just what you eat, or how you choose to live, it affects everything. It’s a planetary issue. Animals deserve freedom. Yes people are starving. But did you know that if Americans alone consumed less meat, we could use the thousand of acres that we use to raise animals and feed the whole fucking planet with the space for grains and vegetables. by 2050 there may be no more fish in the sea caused by overfishing. And you call it no big deal? Get off your high horse. and wake up. It’s not a diet. It’s trying to make a difference. Just because people don’t eat at all, shouldn’t make us be like “fuck it, I’ll eat meat cause I can” “let’s be grateful” Fuck that. Statistics say that, the same amount of land can sustain 20 vegans (a grain/vegetable/soy field), while that land could only sustain 1 omnivore(animal/vegetable/grain)….Vegans full of shit? I think not.
^Hey, I like you. Your argument is valid. Congratulations.
“I say that intentionally.
I am not a lesbian. Not bi. Not straight. Not pan. Not gay.
I am queer. Intentionally. I intentionally use this term although others may apply.
Because being queer is political. It is fucking shit up. It is reconstructing broken elements. It is loving multiple sexes and genders and expressions, alone and simultaneously.
When I fuck my partner it is queer. When I am fucked it is queer. When I fuck myself it is queer.
My dress is just as queer as my combat boots.
I am always queer. Intentionally.”—
