It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.
when i forget to log into ao3 and i have to click proceed to see an adult fic, i actually get a kick out of it. like i am an old timey queen and my bard is apologetic: “gentle lady, dicks doth touch in this next ballad. would you prefer another?” and i give him a gesture of command like, “nay, you may proceed, minstrel. bring forth the tale of dicks”

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.
literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey
Apparently a “suspect” shot at a police officer shooting him in the arm
He was indeed shot via the news
Protesters say that the “suspect” was shot and killed
Looking for more information

I had no idea how much I needed something like this in my life until now
…But what the word “feminist” does do is acknowledge the very long history of the women’s rights movement. I agree with what [Joss Whedon is] saying: It should just be assumed men and women are equally important and equally capable—but it’s not, and it hasn’t been for thousands of years. So, “feminism” and being a “feminist” is an acknowledgement of that history and the culture we’ve lived in for a long time. It’s a reaction to that, but for me, that’s an important acknowledgement to make.
Fucking homicidal mother
I don't know what's going on.
Come listen to me lecture you about your life choices
Anonymous said: I'm just wondering, why DO some people use plural pronouns they/them instead of "it" if who you're referring to is just one person?
they/them is not a fucking plural in this context
it can be used as one yes BUT
Lets say for example, you were talking to someone about…… your new doctor who you haven’t met yet. Would you refer to them as “it”? No you fucking wouldn’t, you would refer to them as “they”. “I’ve got a new GP and their name is J. Smith” (ayyy u see what I did there) BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW THEIR GENDER YOU SAY “THEY/THEIR/THEM”
also “it” sounds really rude and like you’re talking about an inanimate object like a chair or something
Oh good lord. They is a singular and plural pronoun. Because of this it works perfectly for non-binary and genderfluid people. Also calling ANYONE “it” is literally the rudest thing you could ever do.
