Eating animals is a huge contributor to world hunger. It takes 16 pounds of grain to produce one pound of beef, and only one pound of grain to produce one pound of bread. “By cycling our grain through livestock and into beef, we end up with only 6 percent as much good available to feed human beings as we would have if we ate the grain directly.” #govegan

Eating animals is one thing.  The problem is removing them from their ecosystems, which causes desertification.  Plants depend on animals as much as animals depend on plants

LGBT Rape Culture

I’m sorry, guys, but I really had to laugh at the way this is worded.  Sexual violence ranges from harassment to rape.  Rape is sexual violence.  Why would you feel the need to separate them into two categories?

wait why do they look like twins tho

white peopleeeeee

Kind of on the fence with this one. I read the article and it appears that they actually do care about the child, but are scared for her because their families and the town they live in are racist as fuck. They also both acknowledged that they may not really have the cultural competency needed to raise the baby, as they really didn’t have much contact with Black people until much later on in their lives.
So, it’s not so much that they are like EW MY BABY IS BLACK AND I WANT TO SUE THE FUCK OUT OF THIS SPERM BANK, it’s more so I SPECIFICALLY ASKED FOR A WHITE DONOR, AND WHILE I DO LOVE MY CHILD AND BONDED WITH HER IMMEDIATELY, THE SPERM BANK STILL WAS NEGLIGENT, AND NOW I AM SCARED BECAUSE I CURRENTLY DO NOT HAVE THE SOCIAL AND CULTURAL MEANS TO PROPERLY CARE FOR MY CHILD
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-sperm-donor-lawsuit-met-20140930-story.html

#yeah#this is more about people being aware of the actual problems like the negligence and the parents self-acknowledgement of their own inabilities than it is about racism#if they sue they could probably get enough money to move to a safer area and so they can raise their kid without fear of him/her being subjected to racism (x)

Thank you for the accurate representation of the situation. The lesbian family selected a specific donor, and the sperm bank fucked up big time and gave them the wrong sperm. Huge negligence on the sperk bank’s part.

I’m so glad that we had the maturity to handle a serious discussion about negligent sperm banks.  Tumblr, you surprise me sometimes.

my life changed forever when i found out the word “slang” was actually slang for “shortened language”

so slang is slang for slang

I think slang is pretty much it’s own word now with it’s own definition, since not all slang is actually a shortened version.

gay-men:

People forget this aspect of homophobia. They forget that kids who likely think or know they’re gay at a very young age have to listen to an avalanche of bigotry and absorb that into their view of the world. Often this stuff comes from their own family and friends. Not many types of people have to experience what can feel like growing up behind enemy lines. Some gay people do. The world moves on of course, people move on, but those in that situation still have to live with those experiences and the feelings of fear, isolation and loneliness that it brought about.

Reblogging because I know what that’s like.  The worst parts are being under the belief that there is something terribly wrong with your brain and not being able to figure out what or how to cure it no matter how many trips to the psychiatrist, and having the utter conviction that your are going to hell and there’s nothing you can do about it, because no matter how hard you try, you can’t get rid of those feelings.
Think about that before you decide how to talk about homosexuality with or around your kids.  Everybody has enough shit to deal with in this life without you or your kids putting other people through that kind of torment.  Telling people that they’re going to hell isn’t doing them a favor, it’s just mean.

What
The
Fuck

yr favourite “female-positive” porn star james deen is a rape apologist

it’s almost like porn has the ability to minimize people’s perceptions and attitudes towards sexual assault or ~~~~something~~~

So I guess we’re just going to ignore the fact that he was responding to the rape comment made by the woman above him?

no one is ignoring anything, she’s obviously repulsive as well, but the majority of the vitriol is indeed going to be aimed at the male porn star who is lauded because he eats pussy but has zero issues joking about anally raping the 12 year old girls around him

she said that (also awful) comment but it certainly does not absolve him of how gross he is, he didn’t even HAVE to respond at all let alone with that!

OKAY, so:

1) he is a pornstar okay

2) Dana DeArmond is a pornstar as well (don’t ask me how I, a sixteen year old girl, know that… just don’t)

3) none of them meant it seriously, they were joking because they made a porn video together where he was “ass raping” her (again, don’t ask me) and I suppose that some people probably watched it

4) I write for a czech website for girls/women and I made an interview with him. I talked with him about rape, and he said he would never have sex with anyone without their consent so please just hakuna your tatas ladies

they’re just two pornstars making private jokes, don’t get into it if you don’t do your research first, he is actually quite a nice person in real life so leave him alone; all of us make weird jokes sometimes.

1) Thank you

2) What 16 year old girl wouldn’t know that

3) Are we not going to respond to the fact that the 12 year olds shouldn’t have been doing what they were doing either?

4) They’re porn stars.  Why wouldn’t they be making jokes about ass raping 18 year olds (note how she said “in 6 years”) ….. guys.  porn.

Y’ all are takin’ this shit way too seriously.  (and yes, I used y’ all as plural as I’m from Chicago where y’all actually means how it sounds: you all)

raw-fed-pets:

All dogs share the same basic digestive system despite the range of physical variations (and attitudes) across different breeds. Every dog is designed to eat a raw animal-based diet, from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane. Breed-specific dog food brands are simply a marketing gimmick aimed at playing on the pet owner’s emotions, and their desire to feed their pet the best possible diet.

I don’t think that dogs need an animal-based diet. If done right they can be vegan and not contribute to the murdering of innocent animals. We’ve adapted and domesticated them enough to do so. They’ve evolved to live without meat just like us.

200% incorrect. Vegan diets are carbohydrate-based. Carbohydrates are inflammatory, feed cancer (glucose), contribute to periodontal disease (leading to systemic organ failure, eg heart), cause insulin spikes leading to a multitude of other issues in the long-term (thyroid, liver, diabetes, heart disease) and also cause pancreatic problems due to extreme stress on the pancreas (secreting heavy loads of carb enzymes over a long period of time). The low moisture content coupled with high plant protein may also cause renal failure in the long term. The preservatives used may also be linked to cancer (BHA, BHT etc), and these diets also skew the omega3/6 ratio, causing further inflammation (linked to cancer again). They cause urine alkalinity leading to urinary problems such as crystals, blockages and UTI’s.
Brief into to dog anatomy/physiology:
- Stomach PH: Their highly acidic stomach is designed for eliminating harmful bacteria and breaking down bone into a gel-like substance. Humans have a much more alkaline stomach acid which is why we would struggle to digest raw bone.
-Digestive Enzymes: Higher level of proteases to break down animal protein. High bile load to help push through bacteria.
-Dental Anatomy: Sharp pointed teeth designed for ripping and tearing flesh and bones.Dogs do not chew their food as we do, they are wired to swallow chunks quickly as a basic survival instinct.
-Jaws: Dogs also have strong jaws that physically cannot move sideways (like your own can). This sideways grinding action is a feature that allows pre-digestion of plant material. Again, dogs rip off chunks and swallow them whole.
-Lack of Salivary Amylase: Omnivores have this for pre-digestion of carbohydrates. Dogs and cats do not. The canine pancreas secretes amylase as a backup, however this does not mean they should be fed a high carbohydrate diet every day for a lifetime. Processed food (incl vegan) is 40-70% carbohydrate.
-Lysozyme: Instead of amylase, dogs have lysozyme in their saliva which is an antibacterial. This may be useful for destroying any harmful bacteria in carrion/rotten food/feces, as well as wound cleaning.
-Gut length: The canine gut is short in length which is because flesh must be pushed through quickly. It does not need to sit and ferment, as this could allow bacteria to multiply to harmful levels. Note that plant eating animals have a long digestive tract and even multiple stomach chambers in order for plant material to be slowly broken down by the necessary enzymes.
-Nutrient profiles. Dogs have 0% biological requirement for carbohydrates. They gain every single essential nutrient from a prey based diet such as Whole Prey/Prey Model. Vegan diets are full of processed lab-made vitamins and minerals. Many vitamin pre-mixes are made in china and shipped to the country of manufacture.
All in all, dogs will survive on a high carbohydrate diet but it will cause systemic effects eventually. Similar to smoking, a junk food diet affects every dog differently and some may be affected more severely than others, and in different time spans. You can also expect high vet fees in the form of dental cleanings, dental surgeries and various health problem later on in life.
It is not recommended that you feed your pet the equivalent of a big mac for the entirety of its life. This is essentially what kibble and vegan diets are. Evolution has changed the appearance and even the behaviour of your dog, but their digestive system is still geared towards meat. Basically, you are paying money to have a company slowly kill your pet from the inside out. 
0/10, Not Recommended.

Hard science here for anyone who needs to shut down a “vegan pet owner.” It’s abuse. Feed your animal the substances they evolved to eat or do not own an animal, it’s as simple as that.

Vegans’ number 1 mistake:  Putting too much emphasis on animal rights.  Please, animals have more rights than I ever will.  If you’re not going vegan primarily for health reasons, then you’re doing it wrong.  Trying to keep every animal alive because “they’re pretty” or whatever is just childish.  If you really cared about animals, you wouldn’t try to make them something that they’re not.  Predators will be predators.  It’s the cycle of life.  It’s all natural and that’s fucking majestic, even if it “makes you sad”.  Grow up.
Seriously, don’t tell me about animal rights and then turn around and say you’re dog’s not allowed to eat meat.

It’s actually impossible to measure how many fucks a corvid give because there is no device sensitive enough to register such a tiny amount.

science/animal side of tumblr… explain to me the birb thing

Tail Pulling is a behavior noted in many corvids. The practical application is to create a distraction that will allow the birb to make off with the target’s food. Imagine being in the lunch room and a large fellow has a Twinkie you covet. You can’t just take it from him because he’ll defend his Twinkie. But if you thwap him on the back of his neck and then dash around to snag the Twinkie while he investigates, you stand a decent chance of enjoying spongey goodness. This is basically that in birb form.

Except corvids don’t only do this as a distraction. Sometimes they seem to just being doing it to mess with other animals/birbs. But to use my lunch room analogy, there are times you might thwap someone sneakily on the back of the neck just for amusement. Primates exhibit behavior that appears to be just be annoying other animals for amusement. Given how intelligent crows are, its not unlikely that this is a manifestation of an innate desire to just fuck with someone else for the fun of it. Such as this from the link above:
