Deer & Bunny love by X POSE

These beautiful babies are what hungry carnists eat for dinner.

GOTTA LOVE ANGRY VEGANS TAKING OVER POSTS THAT DONT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH DIET OR MEAT OR ANYTHING WTF.

Also let me say a thing.

If someone is eating rabbit and venison (like say, a good chunk of my family do) the chances are unreasonably high that that animal was living in the wild, having a natural life without torment or genetic engineering or chemicals or constant battery and trauma. And that the hunter who killed them was actually wORKING for their own meat instead of supporting an industry made up of cramped conditions and torments like I described before and they actually had to process their own meat, know where it comes from and used the meat of the animal as opposed to hunters who hunt for “sport” and trophies. This is by FAR the most responsible and most cruelty free consumption of meat that is available to people in our society.

I’m a vegetarian because I abhor the way the meat industry operates and the disrespectful ways the animals are treated and I am driven MAD by people who eat meat who are so disconnected to their meat they only ever see it in shrink wrap with the bones and blood removed and cannot admit or face the fact they eat animals. I dont care if someone eats meat, but if they cannot face the reality of it I question why they do.

So if someone went out and hunted down a wild animal that had a natural life and prepared their meat for their family and loved ones I will high five them because thats the way its supposed to be done and not buying a faceless pack of shrink wrap.

Don’t fucking shame people who are responsible and getting their meat in the one of the most cruelty-free options. Fuck off.

Vegan here agreeing with the above.

Also, for fuck’s sake - I am so sick of ‘but they’re so cute!’ being presented as a good - or even minimally acceptable - argument for veg*nism/animal rights. 'Factory farms are major producers of greenhouse gases' is a good argument, as is 'growing feed for cattle contributes to deforestation in the Amazon' or 'some studies show that vegetarian diets are correlated with lower mortality' or, you know, 'animal agriculture involves unnecessary cruelty.' But if you are only interested in the well-being of cute fuzzy baby animals, you are only interested in the well-being of animals that make you personally feel happy, i.e., you are only out for yourself.

I’m going to start dating these as we move into a longer stretch here, because I want to reblog older tweets and posts but I want to make sure myself and others aren’t getting dates confused.

These all appear to be from August 18th.

(and yes it says it at the top but I’ve still seen confusion on some posts so I’mma add them to the bottom as well)

The Blood and Crips standing guard together - holy shit, full body chills.

Things You Can Do For Ferguson:

donrickles:

  • Donate money to have those arrested in Ferguson released on bail. These people belong on the streets, especially at a time like this.
  • Send a note of condolence to the family of Michael Brown. Let’s not forget the tragedy that started this.
  • Donate to the Michael Brown Memorial Fund. This is an official fundraiser run by the Brown family’s lawyers. They are going through so much, lets make sure at the very least it isn’t a financial burden.
  • Help get people on the ground. There are activists and reporters who want to do their part and get to Ferguson. Donate and get them there. I am so far aware of Zellie Imani, Zak Jemmott, and JR Valrey (a reporter for SF Bay View).
  • Donate to the Ferguson Youth Initiative.The children of this community deserve better than to be gunned down. Make sure they get that in the future.
  • Feed the children of Ferguson. Many children in America rely on school to get their meals and thanks to the civil unrest caused by the police, the children of Ferguson have been without school since Monday. These people want to make sure that doesn’t mean anyone is going hungry.
  • Find a National Moment of Silence in your area. If one doesn’t exist, start one. Share this experience with others. Solidarity is important.
  • Keep awareness up. Not just among the like-minded people on tumblr, this is something everyone needs to be aware of.
  • Spread accurate information. There is a lot of distortion going on here and spreading every piece of information as it is reported only makes that worse. First and foremost make sure you are listening carefully, then share what is important and relevant.

If you are aware of any good causes or ways to help that I have missed, please reblog and add them.

THE BEGINNINGS OF KAWAII

No, no, you have no idea. It actually IS the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture”. And it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.

And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.

So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple handwritting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks <3


!!!!!

NO OK THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!

This is also how the kawaii fashions started! Girls began dressing in cute and off beat styles for themsleves, they were criticized by adult figures telling them “you’ll never find a husband if you dress that way!” to which they began to reply “Good!”

All the japanese subcultures and fashions that evolved out of this became a rebellion to tradition and the starch gender roles and expectations the adults were forcing on the younger generations. As early as the 70s and still to this day you’ll see an emphasis on child-like fashion and themes in more kawaii styles and the dismissal of the male gaze with styles like lolita (a lot of western people assume lolita is somehow sexual due to the name of the fashion, but ask any japanese lolita and they will tell you that men hate the style and find it unattractive which is sometimes a large reason they gravitate towards the style - they can express their femininity and individuality while remaining independent and without the pressure to appeal to men)

Its so so so important to understand the hyper cute and ‘odd’ fashions of Japanese girls carry such a huge message of feminism and reclaiming of their own lives.   

so are you telling me that Japan’s punk phase was really the kawaii phase

oknope:

you never realize how boring your life is until someone asks what you like to do for fun.

But think about how cool that is. You strike up a conversation with someone you’ve never met in person, potentially on the opposite side of the fucking planet. You would never have met this person otherwise. Your paths have no reason to have crossed, but you can instantly forge a connection with this stranger because no matter how different the rest of your individual lives may be, you have this shared experience of the same fictional world. We don’t sit around campfires and tell stories about mythic heroes any more. We have computer screens and headcanons and AU fanfiction. But it’s still fundamentally the same thing. What you do for fun is something fundamentally human that has survived and grown and changed as long as there have been humans, and now you get to do it on a planetary scale.

Who the fuck needs flying cars.

There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger!

The Last Bookstore
Los Angeles, California

This place is on my bucket list to visit.

this is the only place i buy books from anymore ((and im going there tomorrow i need some new trashy romance novels)))

cool fact: up on the second floor, 1 book only costs $1. and the amount of cool books up there is endlessssss. so if you have $5 to spend well lucky you

This place looks, like it smells sssoooo gggoooodd

Going.

Also going here!

Someone take me there and I’ll love you forever.

I’ve been there and they not only have books but little art and sewing/stitching classes and small art gallery thingies up on one of the higher floors.
Fun fact: the building used to be a bank and they have this actual vault that, if closed, will not open again and in the vault they keep all the crime novels and it’s super fucking rad

When we were in LA, hulklinging and I got off at the wrong bus stop and accidentally stumbled into this place. It’s exactly as magical as it looks.

#THEY DON’T WRITE EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE

[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]

People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.

People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wear a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor the the Time War but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to write his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.

Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.

He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.

Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.

Thank you for everything written above.

Ladies and gentlemen, and variations thereupon

You know, I’m amazed that in all my time on tumblr, I’ve never seen a single post appreciating this lady. I mean, do you realise what is happening here?

This is clear and casual acceptance of gender non-conformity in mainstream media. And not only is this in Doctor Who, with an audience of millions and millions of people worldwide, but it’s also set in the future, implying that progress is not only spaceships and interplanetary colonisation, but also in the way of acceptance of identity outside the gender binary.

So yeah, let’s take a moment to appreciate the awesome lady in Doctor Who that was totally chill about trans* folk without making a big show of it. You go, girl*!
(*or gentleman, or variations thereof.)

Russell T Davies wrote these episodes, with these lines:

  • End of the World: Ladies and gentlemen and trees and multiforms…
  • The Long Game: Ladies, gentlemen, multi-sex, undecided or robot…
  • Midnight: Ladies and gentlemen, and variations thereupon…

In Russell T Davies’ futures, gender is always more complicated than today.  

Davies also created Jack Harkness, from a future (the 51st century) where sexuality is fluid (also Jack and the Face of Boe have both been said to carry pregnancies).  

On the other hand the Moffat years gave us this line:

"We’re the thin/fat, gay, Anglican marines: why would we need names as well?" 

Because its so funny and weird that out of hundreds of “anglican marines” in Demons Run in the 52nd century, that a fat guy and a thin guy would be a couple…ok….

And they’re literally credited at the end as “Fat One” and “Thin One”.   They’re purely a joke.

Is that how straight people see us?

Anyway, in the meantime (bringing us back to the original post), the fact that no one knew this Hostess’s name in “Midnight” is considered a major tragedy, because she is a hero.

(The episode also features a character named Sky who mentions her ex with she/her pronouns, and no one makes a big deal out of it.  Its entirely normal, and not a joke at all.)

I’m still wary of taking the media-friendly, chattering-classes stance that labels don’t matter, that we should chuck them in the bin; I’m labelled gay, and I love that label, I need it. Equally, if you’re working in a car factory and you’ve been closeted for the entire 50 years of your life, you’re carrying an awful and important label. They aren’t easily shrugged off. But maybe we need more labels. Like, five million more, and that’s just for starters.

We need a vocabulary that will fit the sheer complexity of ordinary men and women.

—Russell T. Davies

Hey there everybody! I’ve been transitioning for about three years now, and it’s finally time for me to try to get it over with and finish the transition, and so I was hoping that you’d all be able to help me out! 

I’ve set up an indiegogo page for crowdfunding the surgery, and most of the incentives are drawings since that’s what I do, haha. The link has a whole lot more information, and you can see what it’s all going towards! If you can, please please reblog this and spread the word to friends or family that would be interested but not on tumblr, the best way to get this rolling is to have a lot of people know about it. Here’s the shareable link to the indiegogo:

http://igg.me/at/topchop/

Shoutout to the amazing contributors so far, the latest being Maya and Jack who bumped the progress bar 3% with one donation, you’re all amazing! Slowly but surely it’s getting there, and I’m pumped!

Feel more than welcome to- in fact, please do repost this elsewhere or send it to someone you think would be interested in helping out the cause, even if they aren’t on tumblr! Getting it out on other social media sites that I may not necessarily use is always good c:
