|me:||should i make a sarcastic comment or not
I did a thing.
Jesus was a Jew. He was from Judea and practiced as a Jew. Christanity as a religious movement began as a Jewish false messiah movement (and there have been many others) and didn’t become Christianity as we know it until post Council of Jerusalem when it was determined that gentile converts to Christianity did not have to keep Jewish law (creating a distinction between Christianity and Judaism). Pls history correctly. This is almost as bad as the “Jesus was a brown Palestinian anarchist” post tbh.
I like how this was literally the only thing you gave a fuck about
you are fucking scum
This reminds me of living in Arkansas. Every fucking white Christian family had a sign on their front lawn that said in red letters STAND WITH ISRAEL.
Once you go vegan, you’ll start to realize that everyone you know suddenly has an uncle who owns a farm
And nobody on tumblr ever goes to McDonalds or anywhere else that abuses animals, because they buy all their shit from their ‘local farm’.
And they all know a friend who tried to go vegan and almost died.
But... Human are superior to a lot of other animals? Like some rodents evolved without a part of the digestive system and do not efficiently process food. So humans have superior digestive systems. Most humans are definitely superior in intelligence to almost all animals. Call it speciesism, but that doesn't make it less true. Why pretend otherwise? I guess because there are still some people less intelligent than some animals.
Excuse me. Did you know humans can’t fly on our own? We also can’t navigate the oceans with instinct, or walk 80km a day based on the path our ancestors took. We can’t breathe underwater. Hey, speaking of digestive systems (here’s a handy fucking tip - how you digest food doesn’t make you superior) - did you know that all carnivorous animals digest flesh better than us? In fact most omnivorous animals do. So I guess that makes us inferior to like at least 15% of the animals on the planet then. You know beavers can hold their breath for 45 minutes? Did you know that orcas have an extra part of their brain than humans? Did you know crocodiles can go without food for 2 years? Hey, did you know cockroaches can live without their head for a few weeks? What exactly do you think makes someone superior to someone else?
You do not get to decide what makes someone superior and what doesn’t. And you do not get to take someone’s rights away based on what YOU think they are capable of. Do you think the same about disabled? Children? The elderly?
You can not do everything that animals can do. You can not do everything that humans have been able to do, either. You’re basing your superiority off standards set by HUMANS. I would like to see you live the lifestyle of a marine animal, a bird, a wolf, a giraffe, a fucking rat. And even if they do not fit your definition of “intelligent”, that gives you no right to murder, rape, torture, abuse, enslave and oppress them. They are capable of thought, they are conscious and aware, they are able to experience emotions and they are 100% CAPABLE OF FEELING PAIN. THAT is what should decide whether or not someone is equal to you. Not their fucking digestive system.
I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.
I walked a mile with Sorrow;
And ne’er a word said she;
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When Sorrow walked with me.
To Solitude →
O Solitude! if I must with thee dwell,
Let it not be among the jumbled heap
Of murky buildings; climb with me the steep,—
Nature’s observatory—whence the dell,
Its flowery slopes, its river’s crystal swell,
May seem a span; let me thy vigils keep
’Mongst boughs pavillion’d, where the deer’s…
Still from Expeditie Poolcirkel
i love how carnist have a problem with the tiniest percentage of vegans feeding their carnivorous pets a vegan diet but WONT SAY SHIT ABOUT MILLIONS COWS BEING FED CORN EVERY DAY, BIRDS BEING FORCED FED, TO THE POINT OF NOT EVEN BEING ABLE TO WALK. i’m laughing so hard because these people are saying vegans are abusing animals to fit their personal needs. WHAT WORLD ARE YOU LIVING IN??
