Omg look at petas response Holy shit what the fuck burn them omg

Vegetarianism: because i care more about cows and chickens than the poor foreign poc who pick my organic veggies

Why are you acting like peta is anything more than a toddler throwing a tantrum, as if this is a reasonable response we should even pretend to consider? Why do you think this article mentions peta before mentioning the farmers? Because people get off on hating vegetarians, and peta is a shitstorm of crazy controversy. They offer literally nothing to the dialogue on animal rights because they are HORRIBLE PEOPLE.
If you want to assign blame for the rising price of quinoa, blame capitalism, not people who choose to abstain from eating meat.
Also interesting: "Quinoa Craze Inspires North America to Start Growing Its Own" (NPR).

I agree, you’re completely right. I was just very taken aback by their comment. I think any “vegetarian hate” is misplaced but I believe most people are angry at the blatant hypocrisy supporters of PETA show when they pretend to care so much about animals and disregard human life. Capitalism is the main culprit here and anyone would be foolish to argue otherwise but I don’t think being angry at that particular “Animal-rights” organization equates to vegan hate.But I understand your grievances as It would be very disingenuous for people to be angry with what these farmers face solely when it comes to opposing vegetarianism or veganism as they just become tools to justify themselves as meat eaters. This kind of stuff should make us angry all of the time, not just when PETA says something stupid again.

I agree 100000%. My criticism was aimed at the person who reblogged your post, not you. Your distaste for PETA means you’re a decent human.

Umm is that white guy in the Fiat commercial with the Diddy mirage wearing a keffiyeh at one point?

That shit is wrong. Wow.

Like, I try to use apple cider vinegar to embrace my whiteness and the hipster/hippie vegetarian lifestyle I’m trying to maintain, but holy fuck this shit reeks. The only way to make it not terrible is to cook this crazy delicious salad dressing that calls for a quarter cup of brown sugar.

WAY TO MAKE IT NOT HEALTHY

I firmly believe that the reason many Slytherins were easily convinced to join Voldemort was because they were treated like shit by the rest of the houses while they were growing up. Imagine spending seven of the most important years of your life being told that you were part of the bad house and therefore bad yourself. Everyone boos your quidditch team. All the houses will hang out with everyone except you. You grow up being hated by your fellow students and many of your teachers.
Now imagine someone comes along and tells you that you’re not worthless and bad. That you’re invited to join a family where you will right the wrongs committed against you. You have the opportunity to be wanted and powerful instead of a hated outcast. Several of your former classmates are telling you how great it is. How you’re welcomed and needed. These are the kids you grew up with. The classmates who went through all the same things you did. Being a Death Eater sounds pretty good now.

I’ve been waiting for a post like this.

THIS.

I was always bothered by the scene at the end of book 7, when the students are asked whether they want to fight the incoming Death Eater army. The Slytherin students are all like, “Uh. No?” And they’re treated like terrorists for it. In the movie, they’re even locked in the school dungeons while everyone cheers.
Did nobody stop to think and realize that if the Sytherin students had stood and fought, they would have been facing their own parents on a battlefield? Even if some of them weren’t really on board with the whole Death Eater thing, expecting them to fight was just cruel. They were children. The oldest of them were seventeen. Babies. And their own professors were asking them to shoot illegal killing spells at Mum and Dad.
Imagine you are a Slytherin and you are staying behind to defend your school and maybe restore some honor to your House. The other students are all giving you mistrustful glares. You know they’re waiting for you to start hitting them in the back with stunning spells. You consider doing it, too, because you’re already starting to regret the choice you made.
Then the battle begins, and you are up against a crowd of strangers who aren’t strangers at all. You recognize voices, muffled behind masks but still piercingly familiar. Your uncle. Your cousin. Your best friend’s big sister.
And then you see a tall man in expensive grey robes. A moment later you notice the small, curvy woman next to him, wand ready. They are guarding each others backs.
You recognize their shoes.

THANK

Shit, I almost feel like crying. As a proud Slytherin, I say, you are all awesome.

Slytherin who stinks of Hufflepuff here, from a rotten lineage.  Yep.

Slythe

Hmm… That sounds eerily similar to the victim complexes the Klan placed into the heads of white people in post-Civil War southern US. Problematic.Perhaps that context doesn’t make any sense since they’re British. I don’t know.

Saturday morning couture look:

Pair your despair that you’ve been awakened before planned with
1. Dirty and torn undershirt
2. Striped, thin over shirt from the floor
3. The sadness of having to face the morning sun
4. Red eyes, puffy face
5. A kippah that cost more than anything else you’re wearing

Happy Saturday. Enjoy your fashion.

Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools. 

shutup and take my money

Will have one day

Yes, you can drink this water. Or you could choose to drink potable water. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

usually i try to stay out of ~tumblr politics~, but something has become disturbingly apparent to me when it comes to the issues the community of “social justice” individuals actually cares about.

no one is talking about vandalized anne frank books in japan, ukranian jews

when you see it, you cannot unsee it

it’s a woman

PAINTED TO LOOK LIKE A PARROT

A WOMAN

it took me 5 minutes to find her

I WAS LIKE NO THAT’S NOT A WOMAN, THAT’S A PARROT

That looks nothing like a parrot….

Lol leave it to bird people to immediately recognize that it looks nothing like a scarlet (green wing?) macaw. That is a fucked up head and beak!
