    Anonymous said: like, dont get me wrong im not against veganism; i think its great but i just dont understand your statement under the 'i think. therefore i am vegan' post because you say that eating meat is contrary to being a feminist but that would also mean that being a feminist means being restricted in your own freedom of what you want to eat. or am i wrong? i just really dont like it when vegans make non-vegans feel less humanely than a vegan because

    soycrates:

    necessaryveganism:

    Your freedom cannot extend so far that it stomps on the freedom of someone else. That’s not freedom, that’s oppression.

    I’ll give you an example. 

    When I say “we should be able to choose freely who we have sex with,” I mean we should not be restricted to gender, race, nationality, etc. What I don’t mean is you get to have sex with whoever you want regardless of whether they want it - that’s rape. Would you say not being allowed to rape is restricting your freedom to have sex with whoever you want?

    Similarly, when I say “you can eat whatever you want,” I mean you can choose from the variety of grains, fruits, vegetables, etc. What I don’t mean is you get to slaughter a living, breathing being. Would you say not being allowed to kill is restricting your freedom to eat whatever you want?

    I’m not trying to make people feel bad just for the sake of it - I tell people the facts and I tell them my opinion - if the reality of your actions makes you feel bad then maybe you’re doing something bad. You have the opportunity to change it.

    "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." - Maya Angelou

    Freedom is not about ignoring or preventing the freedom of others, regardless of what ethical label it falls under. No feminist, humanist, egalitarian or human rights activists is given jurisdiction by their creed to oppress others.

    ask meme: put three things in my askbox that look like they could be part of an ask meme, but in truth are just a string of barely-related words/letters. i will answer them somehow.

    some examples:

    • apple juice, marigold, J
    • 37, mint chip, periwinkle
    • tesseract, tin can, bulb

    Eve chooses to have an open discussion with the serpent instead of ignoring them and assuming their opinion is wrong. The serpent respects Eve enough to discuss this issue with her and offer her a choice; God only commanded Eve, dictating what she should and should not do. It should really come as…

     
  5. Alright, here’s a thing that’s bothering me today.

    I don’t care for Anita Sarkeesian. I think her analyses of women’s role in pop culture is shallow at best and amounts to little more than base propaganda. Most of the points I’ve heard her make are obviously biased and often only half-true, and I think she’s a very poor representation of the feminist movement.

    And because I am a fucking adult, I can hold that opinion of her without threatening to murder everyone in the same building as her. It’s really not difficult at all, and I don’t understand how some people react that way. And that terrifies me. Even more terrifying is that the police refused to do anything about such an obvious threat.

    I’m not scared because I personally was targeted in any way. I’m a cishet white dude and could easily fit in with the Sarkeesian-haters if I was a little more of a shithead. I’m scared because a large group of people was threatened simply for being in the same general area as someone disliked by a certain portion of the internet, and the authorities did nothing about it.

    Doesn’t that count as domestic terrorism? Don’t we devote massive amounts of resources in this country to preventing and fighting against terrorism? Why is such an obvious terrorist threat being ignored when we’ve gone into massive national debt and given up many personal freedoms specifically to prevent that? I can’t believe it’s just simple bigotry. People just can’t be that stupidly evil. So how the hell did we end up in this situation?

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking.  So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?  

There is only one reason a cop would resist having a bodycam, and it’s the same reason they try to scare you away from filming them and it’s the same reason they’d tape over their badges and it’s the same reason racists love the Anon feature and it’s the same reason the KKK wears hoods.

    I’d be more than willing to post up a preview of the first 25 pages of my new book "No Bull, No Bucks" if I knew that people were interested in seeing it before the final cut: if you’re interested, please donate and share this post.

    Some of the feature recipes in the first 25 pages are the Scrambled Brains Tofu, Carrot Cake Waffles, Not-Quite-Amy’s Teriyaki Bowl and Spinach Mushroom Pockets (as well as including the chapters on the philosophy of consciousness and the many different approaches to modern ethics).

We are forced to live in a system that steals from us daily, Kill snitch culture.

Important things to keep in mind!
- never take from ‘mom and pop’ type store. Its likely you’ll actually harm them, whereas taking from a walmart wont effect much.
- never take items that a worker is assigned to monitor (usually super expensive items), theyll be in trouble for it. and its usually a minimum wage worker and usually they lose hours or pay, or they even get fired.
- similar to the above, never take things that are usually locked up for the above reason
- if its a store you know gives their near-expiration products to workers/charity, try to avoid taking the near expiration products.
- if youre taking clothing, avoid leaving hangers. it sounds weird, but itll make it seem like it was more likely an error in the computer than a theft, since the empty hanger sitting there will seem suspicious. 
- also for clothing, try not to take more than one item at once, as it will look suspicious if theres 10 medium shirts missing, and it won’t be written off as just a stocking error. and it will lead to workers being penalized
- basically just always consider ‘will this harm a worker’ and if the answer is yes then dont do it
like i was homeless for a while when i was younger and i tried to follow those guidelines to avoid doing harm to people who were probably not much better off than me while trying to get food for myself.

Holy crap, is there like an unspoken thieves code or something?!

it’s a thing. I won’t even lie. I watched someone slip a nursing exam book in their bag at the store I worked at. She made eye contact with me and the blood drained from her face. I simply gave her a sympathetic nod and walked away.
I live in a small town and I knew she was a waitress at a hotel my sister works at, and people at that hotel don’t tip well during off season. Nursing exam books are 50+ bucks. Being a med student myself, I didn’t even breathe a word, and when inventory came up later and the book was missing, I suggested it was likely a mislabel, and the manager wrote it off.
Sometimes, thievery is a necessity. Don’t send people to jail over petty things.

theft for many is survival in this system and taking away from multi-billion dollar companies that are a part of the oppressive capitalist system
