Go vegan. Everyday. Animal agriculture is the largest cause of global warming, pollution and deforestation. Yes, it’s worse than all the worlds transportation systems combined, and much worse than crop farming. Pro tip: cutting out meat actually reduces the amount of crops farmed as well, as much less grains will be needed to feed livestock.
AM I DREAMING
There’s vegan bake sales on some Saturdays in Oakland put on by Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary :))
"The reason people don’t go for help is because there’s still a stigma. Because people don’t talk about mental illnesses the way they do other illnesses." - Maria Bamford
I relayed this joke to my clinical supervisor a few weeks ago when we were talking about doctors not viewing mental illness as a legit reason to fill out disability paperwork. NAILED IT
So I heard it’s Earth Day

….The stakes are set in the film’s opening minute: Among quick clips accompanying the story of the Fall we see a hand reaching for an apple - except the apple is beating, like a heart, both visually and audibly. This is a jaw-dropping visual and philosophical mashup, implying that the real “forbidden fruit,” the arrogant behavior that led to our current fallen condition, was killing and eating animals once we knew the difference between good and evil….

Awesome, more excited than ever to watch it now.
I like the idea of promoting veganism, but I had to boycott the film bc Darren Aronorsky directed it. Darren signed a Free Polanski petition in 2009 after Switzerland arrested him when he went there to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award (he was subsequently released) along with some other top Hollywood people. Polanski drugged, then raped & sodomized a 13-year-old girl. He then fled the US instead of facing jail & has lived a life of luxury and never paid or his crime. Other top power players who I also boycott their films bc they signed the petition include:
Woody Allen (no surprise there-one child predator sticking up for another)
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Harvey Weinstein (The Weinstein Co. is the distributor or Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired, a documentary about the Polanski rape case that puts the child rapist in a sympathetic light He is apparently
Whoopi Goldberg (she didn’t sign the petition, but on The View said that it wasn’t “rape-rape”)
Cannes Film Festival (Cannes Co.)
Full list & some movies those listed above are in or have directed:
sexual liberation comes not just from having sex
but from the decision to have your sexual experiences on your own terms
which can mean deciding to have sex with whomever and however many times you want
or deciding to have no sex
the empowerment comes from the decision and having that decision respected
Let me tell you something about today. Today was the hottest day of the year in New Jersey, I woke up sweating despite air conditioning because it was 95 degrees. Now, i did what any logical person would do and I put on my favorite pair of shorts so i wouldn’t be sweating throughout the day.
Even in my shorts i was sweating my balls off but I went through half of my day as normal, no boys stared at my ass or tried to grope me in public yet when i went to the the cafeteria a teacher told me to go to the office because he finds my shorts inappropriate. I head down to the office to find a group of girls wearing shorts and skirts sitting in a small room in the office, we where all ordered to call our parents or to change into the clothes they had offered us from the school store. These items of clothing included sweatpants and a large heavy sweatshirt. I obviously refused to where those because it was 95 degrees and when you are sweating the key to cool down is NOT to put on more clothes. They told me I would have to stay in that room the whole day if it came down to it.
I was able to leave the office when my friend gave me a pair of yoga pants. The man who made me go down to the office brought down several other girls as I was leaving, at this point they didn’t care how long the shorts where they just sent everyone who was wearing a pair down. They warned me that if I put my shorts back on they would right me up.
I put them back on anyway because just walking down the hallway in those yoga pants made me faint, dizzy,and extremely hot. Thats the main issue, it is hot enough for people to pass out in school but to the school system they would rather a girl suffer from a heat stroke then to have a boy become turned on. My shorts don’t say “COme fuck me in the middle of class” they say,”Its warm out”
The sexualizing of innocent students is not okay
Risking students health is not okay
and tHE LACK OF FEMINISM IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM WILL NEVER BE OKAY
Today was literally horrible
I hate our school so much
I can’t reblog this enough omg
That’s because New Jersey sucks
I love tags it’s like muttering under your breath on the internet
