play animal crossing every day for three weeks. miss one day. don’t play animal crossing again for five months.
I’d only consider being vegetarian or vegan if they stop saying judgmental crap and being in my face about meat all the bloody time.
So you’d only consider respecting other animals’ lives if those who defend their lives stopped telling you to respect their lives?
Ah, the eternal oppressor slogan rears it’s ugly head yet again:
"We will only stop being oppressive if people are really really nice to us about it!"
There are asshole vegans, of course there are. But even if every single vegan in the world were a complete asshole, if you were actually interested in helping animals and not exploiting them, you’d just do that. You’re using other people’s behavior as an excuse not to change your own. Vegans are never going to be “nice” enough for carnists because all of us, just with the words “I’m vegan”, remind you that whoops, you participate in the exploitation and murder of animals! And I guess that makes us assholes. We shouldn’t have to be “nice” for you to examine your own damn behavior.
‘Empty buckets’ in Henan say no to Ice Bucket Challenge
Dozens of people in the drought-hit Henan Province are protesting against the Ice Bucket Challenge, which has become a global viral trend
Armed with empty buckets, bowls and other containers, the protesters stood outside the Spring Temple Buddha in Lushan County on Friday.
The Chinese characters on their clothes read: “Henan, please say no to the Ice Bucket Challenge.”
The province is experiencing its worst drought since 1951. Nearly 19 million people have been affected by the drought.
With that in mind, protesters are calling for water to be saved and other sensible means to be used to help patients of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Since the launch of Feminist Frequency’s Tropes vs Women in Games, creator Anita Sarkeesian has faced a wall of abuse and threats from enraged critics of her detailed research that highlights…
Because apparently nothing is scarier to male video gamers than a woman saying that video games contain a ton of sexist tropes and that the industry can do better.
Fucking burn down the boys club. Just destroy gamer culture because it’s the fucking worst. This is fucking awful.

Just because it seems teacup pigs are coming back and all I see is ~omg cute i want a pig now~, I think this seriously needs to be addressed:
"Teacup" pigs are produced by humans using incredibly cruel methods. The mothers are impregnated before they are fully grown, as babies themselves, in order to stunt the growth of the piglets. Mothers are underfed in order to produce runts (the "super cute" teacup pigs) - weak, fragile, malnourished and riddled with health problems.
When they are born, the piglets are only allowed to feed from their mothers for approximately 1 week (again, to deprive them of the nutrients and food they need to grow), they are taken from their mothers (in many of these “cute” videos you can clearly still see their umbilical cords) and in order to be kept small, are underfed for the rest of their typically short lives.
Common health problems for teacup pigs (and other teacup animals) are:
- Heart Deformities, often resulting in a short lifespan.
- Digestive system deformities (very common in teacup pigs).
- Liver deformities, known as shunts.
- Prone to Hypoglycemia.
- More at risk to head/brain injury as the soft spot on their skull may not harden correctly.
- More susceptible to illness and stress.
- Tend to have more fragile bones.
- More dental problems.
- Higher rate of Epilepsy.
- More prone to dehydration.
- Physical defect where the outside stops growing but the internal organs continue to
- Other deformities in offspring due to inbreeding often used to get such small animals.
And finally, to add insult to injury, many MANY of these pigs end up growing, despite the chances they have. Which means they are abandoned, surrendered, sold (sometimes into slaughter) and left homeless because people didn’t get the minuscule, permanent foetuses they signed up for.
So before you start with the “so cute” and “I want one” bullshit, actually think about the pigs and the disgusting way they’re manipulated, modified and abused by humans. It’s not all so cute and innocent now. So not are we now eating pigs (one of the most abused animals on the planet), we can now abuse and torture them in a different way and display them as cute accessories/must-have items. When will you people be satisfied with the amount of damage you have done and continue to support?
The fact eating meat is literally killing the planet, so much so that we may only have 50 years left on earth, and most people don’t give a shit/ refuse to listen is ridiculous. I watched ‘Cowspiracy’ today and I couldn’t believe it, some of the stats are shocking, what I found most disturbing is that companies like ‘Green Peace’ and other environmentalist companies are PAID by the meat/dairy industry so they don’t say how big it’s impact is on the planet. That’s disgusting to me. They care more about money than the planet.
