"Rape jokes aren’t harmful!"
A 16 year old girl’s sexual assault just became a fucking meme in less than a day and you don’t think that has any correlation to people not taking rape seriously?

i mean, buy not buying a burger i can maybe drive the demand down 0.000000000000000007% and save, like, a single cow in my entire life at best, but literally just…. existing in capitalism inherently requires exploitation of others and it does not matter what i eat, what trade or bargain i make with capitalism, the end result is the same or worse so uh

i wouldn’t deny that within capitalism there will always be exploitation of others and that a lot of the claimed benefits of veganism are meaningless within capitalism

that having been said, 

1) true, capitalism will always have exploitation, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t make choices basedonthefactthatone is clearly worse under the given conditions (links are non-graphic and revolve around human/environmental suffering, non-human suffering is a given and can be pretty easily researched itself if one so chooses)

2) you can’t really narrow down impact based on “well me buying this one burger probably isn’t actually going to do anything,” especially in light of the actual changes in demand enacted by vegans as a movement

veganism isn’t all we need, not even close, but its a step made in the right direction for its refusal to see living beings as objects (which hopefully extends to human beings and a refusal to see them as machines) and an awareness of the forces of capitalism + production

"[Veganism] is part of a revolutionary perspective – how can we not only discover more compassionate relations with human beings but how can we develop compassionate relations with the other creatures with whom we share this planet and that would mean challenging the whole capitalist industrial form of food production." -Angela Davis

If veganism was a just consumer activity then vegans would have no moral issue with consuming and using animal product that were gotten for free or purchased for them, and we know that isn’t the fucking case at all. So stop reducing it to as such.

I’m freAKING OUT MAN where is vegansmustbestopped they can’t be gonE THEY HAVEN’T STOPPED VEGANS YET THEY CANT BE GONE

What?? You think because you got your vegan henchmen to take my tumblr down, that I would give up? NO WAY, MAN!!! I will not rest until your kind no longer exist in this amazing, kick-ass world that my kind think is totally awesome and that your kind is completely fucking up.

You don’t stand a chance against my numbers. My army is filled to the brim with people who are scared shitless of change and also feel like they are the oppressors and the victims all at the same time. I’ve got BILLIONS on my side to win this battle.

You may have the likes of Einstein, Pythagoras, Da Vinci, Tolstoy, and Gandhi on your side, but they are no match for mmmm….bacon. Sure, that may not seem like a big deal hearing it just once, but how about hearing it another 818941585411621891 times with the same exact tone of undeserved originality? Yep..that’s right. Your force field will crumble.

Good luck. You are going to need it!

Go vegan and stay vegan or shut your god damn mouth about animal rights

Out in the lobby with someone else who.can’t handle it and all I can talk about is how depressed I am and how much I hard life fucking hell I’m so broken

+

Stupidly thought I was mentally prepared enough to go to a theatre and watch a vegan documentary (the ghosts in our machine) now I’m out in the lobby close to having a fucking panic attack. It’s not even graphic fucking hell I want to go.home

be-their-sound:

Being vegan is hard. But not in the way most people think.

It’s hard because we constantly think about the animals who are suffering, and whose lives are ending. Being vegan is hard because at least for me, my heart hurts constantly.

Eating and living vegan is easy. Constantly being reminded about animals being tortured and murdered is hard.

I’m so sorry I had to do it

vegansmustbestopped:

I was raised punching people. That’s why we are able to make fists with our hands. That’s what our ancestors used them for. What am I supposed to do? NOT punch people? I don’t think so.

It’s just the way it is. If it’s good enough for prehistoric man, then I certainly don’t understand why I should have to give it a second thought.  I take all of my justifications for what I do based on what neanderthals did, which is why I’m writing this on a computer with electricity, and internet connection, just like they did.

Am I upset that this hurts people? Sure. But it doesn’t mean I don’t like people. I don’t know…maybe I’ll find a way to punch humanely. Just the way it goes. It’s nature. What can I tell you? Living in nature is cruel. I didn’t make the rules. Just living by them.

Not punching people is like a slap in the face of our ancestors. It’s just the way it is. Respect my position. I certainly respect you if you don’t feel like punching, so don’t get mad at me.

Don’t be mad at vegans.
Be mad at the society that told you lie after lie.
Be mad at the ads that ease your conscience in order to sell you stuff.
Be mad at the corporations that profit from your ignorance and nonhumans' exploitation.
Be mad at a system that objectifies and kills sentient beings on a daily basis.

How on earth did this post get over 2,000 notes and yet attract so few whiners?

Please everybody! This sanctuary desperately needs help!

superwholock-inthebox:

Please help us save our farm sanctuary! This campaign is trying to raise just a small portion of what we ultimately need. This group needs all the money it can get.
If you have a few extra bucks please throw it their way! They’re a great group that absolutely loves their animals (I would know, I’m the caretaker of the farm animals) :).
If you don’t have money to donate (trust me, I understand) PLEASE reblog this. We need to spread it as far as it will reach.
