WAS THAT A MOTHER FRACKING ODYSSEY PUN
In response to Jessica Simpson’s meat-lovin’ t-shirt—now available through the 23rd from Primehouse New York—PETA came up with "Top Five Reasons Only Stupid Girls Brag About Eating Meat." It’s nothing we haven’t heard from PETA before; the reasons are generally valid warnings about breast cancer and the environment, couched in PETA’s typical propaganda rhetoric. But reason number four, "Meat will make you fat", is just plain offensive—especially since the post described Simpson as best known for “her ability to proportionately fill out daisy dukes” and expressed hope that “the upcoming ‘Jessica Simpson’s Intimates’ line comes in plus sizes.”
Excuse me, PETA, but whether we choose to eat a nice juicy steak or a big bowl of rice and beans, “real girls” don’t all have to look like (rumored vegetarians) Kate Moss or Avril Lavigne.
Certainly, I don’t see Jessica Simpson as being a good role model - and I do disagree with blanket “real girls…” and “real men…” statements. I understand that, more often that not, those type of statements tend to deconstruct the concept of gender roles.
Although, in the case of “real men…” - e.g. “real men wear pink” - it’s often about men reclaiming traditionally “feminine” stuff without losing their manliness/virility. In short, sending across the message of “I’m secure enough in my manliness that I can wear pink”. Still problematic.
In the case of “real girls…”, that one kinda stems back to second-wave feminism - when women were fighting for the right to do things that men can do. Certainly, it’s understandable for women to resent being told that they can’t do something due to them not being men. However, some do tend to go to in the other direction by insisting that choosing the traditionally “masculine” option is the only feminist choice to make - and that, too, is wrong. Feminism is not about replacing one set of oppressive standards with another.
That all being said, though, I’m sure that the person who created the shirt (it probably was not Jessica Simpson herself) was trying to send the message across that meat is not only for men - and that women can enjoy meat, too. Certainly, it isn’t the best way of getting the message across - but, still, this is something that we should consider.
PeTA is a rusty turd. Pass it on.
And since that link to their shitty blog seems to be broken, here it is.
I’m genuinely curious about something…
The quinoa that I’ve found has been mostly locally grown (like in Washington or California).
Would it still be food imperialism if I only bought local grown? Or should I not?
Domestically-grown quinoa is fine (for the most part, anyway); it’s the imported stuff that tends to be shady. The only importer I trust not to be screwing farmers over is AlterEco, and that’s because they’re registered fair-trade and decidedly aboveboard.
?? I looked at their page and couldn’t find a weird post?? (I’m on mobile)
The image in question wasn’t from fuglydog. I just meant to suggest that said blog was a good example of why the image (which concerned the breeding of typey dogs) was a possible animal welfare issue even if the PeTurds were up their own asses and being appropriative and horrible.
…okay. What is going on in that dog picture is probably really fucked up (and if you don’t know why it’s fucked up, take a look at fuglydog).
But I have the distinct suspicion that the PeTurds are misrepresenting it as a whole ‘nother sort of fucked-up than it actually is.
i saw these little guys at the gas station today & they were practically glued at the hip?!
Trying to get this on as many social media platforms as possible.
A Fight to Survive TBI: The Story of David On the Road to Recover from Traumatic Brain Injury.
August 24, 2012 drastically changed my life. What happened that evening has left David in a vegetative coma and I am desperate to save my son’s life and future. David was pistol whipped, had his jaw broken and then his unconscious body was robbed. Though David regained consciousness, he was incoherent and rushed by ambulance to UMDNJ trauma center in Newark, New Jersey. It was there that he underwent emergency craniotomy surgery to alleviate the pressure from his swelling brain.
He is currently living in a sub-acute unit at a nursing home being fed via a gastric feeding tube. He is no longer entitled to physical therapy because he has shown no signs of progress. This means each day he lies in bed approximately 19 hours and sit in a wheelchair for 5 hours with no physical stimulation aside from being dressed and his diaper changed.
The importance behind physical therapy is that it will help him maintain his muscles and joints; to achieve his goal to attain flexibility, balance and coordination free from pain or suffering, so that he may lead a normal life again; performing all of his daily activities with minimal or no difficulty and without dependency. It can even help with his cardiopulmonary and neurological functions.
With prolonged treatment, it is possible for him to regain a large share, if not all of his mobility and it will improve his overall fitness and health.
David’s survival depends on continued physical and mental stimulation therapies which most insurances are not willing to fund long term. The lack of such treatment poses a direct threat to David’s ability to return to a life that extend beyond sitting in front of a television for hours on end in a nursing home. He deserves better.
His recovery is destined to be a long and arduous one, with no guarantees. But in order for him to have that chance, he needs, aside from a miracle, funds for aggressive physical therapy, a private neurologist and a specially designed vehicle for myself to accommodate his wheel chair.
Please join my family in our fight to get David the medical and physical treatment he needs. The amount we are now trying to raise is just the beginning for David and we could use your support. Thank you!
Please reblog, donate, and pray for David #teamwu
"…is that Legend of Korra doesn’t always spell things out or serve exposition on a silver platter. The show trusts its audience.”
So…is that an attempt to spin telling when it should show (and often enough, showing us one thing while telling us something else altogether) as somehow a good thing, and to insult the reasoning capacity of anyone who disagrees? Because it sure as hell sounds like one.
For the record, Mako does have potential. Potential, mind you, that has already been explored over and over and over again in canon. Frankly, I’ve had enough of Mako rising beyond the call of duty and showing off at the expense of other characters’ development.
Right now, the characters that the writers should be focusing on are Asami, Bolin, Kya, Lin, and the others who have been failed by Books 1 and 2. I am not against Mako appearing in the show and contributing to the story as a newly established rookie detective, but it’s about time the writers put more effort into people other than him, Korra, and Tenzin. And, hopefully, the new characters (i.e. the “bad girl” that Grey Delisle has spoken of) is granted the same courtesy.
The vast majority of opinions on the-unpopular-opinions are actually pretty damn popular. As in, they’re actually mainstream sentiment. And often enough, of the shittiest and most disingenuous sort.
Then again, I suspect that at least a significant percentage of them are trolls.
If you are a feminist, and you eat meat and dairy products - you should know that you STILL support rape, abuse, child abuse, female oppression, and men who flex their muscles and their dominance over others.
No. Because a human woman’s suffering is more important than an animals. I’m not pro animal cruelty but when vegans compare women or black people to animals it just alienates people from your cause. It’s not the same AT ALL.
Oh god this girl again. She is just awful. Shaming, triggering and bullying people to try to get them to follow a vegan diet.
They could be highlighting the benefits of the vegan diet and working on making it more affordable and accessible for low-income individuals. But, no, let’s capitalize on the suffering of abuse and rape survivors and potentially trigger them into anxiety attacks. Let’s dehumanize women and compare them to non-human animals. Let’s go straight for emotional manipulation just like the fucking anti-choicers. That seems productive. *sarcasm*
Because the benefits have been blown so grossly out of proportion that it’s difficult to pick out genuine benefits from the ocean of propaganda. And because working on making it more affordable and accessible would require that they admit that it’s not.
