one time i got a sample from the tea store at the mall and as i walked away the guy said “tea you later” and then his coworker smacked him
I just lost and/or had my wallet stolen… At least, I didn’t have any money in it, and I just turned off my debit card, but it still sucks. I need to go get a new license and school ID and all that jazz now.
I went to donate blood today, and I had an iron level of 15.5 which is the highest healthy number for a woman. I just feel like I’m winning at being a vegan.

It just seems to me whenever a character kisses another one it’s frequently the male forcefully embracing the female then and eating her face. It’s just not what would be considered “romantic” today. Is it mainly that just this is how Shatner kisses? Or is it how people in the 60s viewed kissing or what?
AHHHHH. MY RUNNING PARTNER LITERALLY JUST ASKED ME IF I WANTED TO BE IN A DATING RELATIONSHIP!!! AND GAVE ME A ROSE. I DIDN”T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY, but “let me think about it”. I WA S SO BLIND SIDED AND THAT WAS PROBABLY THE WORST RESPONSE EVER AND I FEEL LIKE A TERRIBLE PERSON AND HE IS SUCH A NICE GUY BUT OMG WE ARE SUCH DIFFERENT PEOPLE. I FEEL HORRIBLE BECAUSE I FEEL LIEK I HANDLED IT VERY POORLY> UGHGG.
I’ve seen every Star Trek movie with the original series cast including the two new movies in the past 5 days.
Comparing a person of an oppressed group to the likes of non human animals has been historically used to dehumanize them, meaning that speciesism built the hierarchy that made these comparisons effective. If it weren’t for already extremely prevalent speciesist beliefs, these comparisons would hold no weight. So as a vegan now critical of speciesism, doesn’t thinking these comparisons are racist/sexist only reinforce the speciesism they were built upon?
You cannot just erase the history and burden of words or the comparison. You can’t just say, “This should have never been hurtful in the first place so I’m going to use it in a non-hurtful manner.” The notion is always going to hold these negative connotations to some degree. I think using the comparison doesn’t recognize the marginalization, violence et cetera the comparison has done and continues to do to this day. I fully believe that the comparison of an animal and human should not be offensive. But it is a comparison which has been used to kill and hurt people. The use, you and many other animal rights activists want to use rides on that offensiveness of the term. It rides on outraging people because of it’s former use at least in my opinion, and not on trying to actually change the comparison into a positive/neutral meaning.
So no I don’t think it’s reenforcing anything, by recognizing people have used this comparison to actually dehumanize people and treat them terribly and making the comparison holds all the pain of that history. I think there are much more effective ways to promote veganism than using a scarred comparison.
Omg. My mom just told me this story. My mom is Caucasian, and my dad is Korean. She said that one time when she took my four siblings and me with her grocery shopping some lady came up and told her what cute kids she had and commended her for being a saint and adopting us all.
if a guy buys you a bunch of drinks and then expects you to have sex with him you can just give him back the drinks by puking into his lap
I live in a farmlandish area. Plus I have people that can drive me to different grocery stores so I can get the best price on things. I definitely know I’m lucky to have affordable and available healthy foods!
Noooo, why? Are they super cheap or super expensive or something? I shop at Aldi’s a lot which has discounted produce.
I’ve decided to challenge myself to only spend $35 dollars a week on groceries this summer, which comes to about $150 dollars per month. I do have some spices, oils and other things I already have that I will be trying to finish up with what I buy. I’ll be doing this while training for a half marathon and trying to eat mostly whole foods.
