i’m getting sick of reading about this militant vegan shit omg you guys need to calm the fuck down. not everyone can be vegan, being vegan is a PRIVILEGE and if you don’t realize this you need to check your fucking privilege (and that’s a lot coming from me because i hate using that phrase). i…
Ok ok..I got some time to drop some common sense before I go skating in a sec. And Here We Go. So you Vegans like me to calm down when you use more resources than you fucking deserve(what have you done lately to benefit ALL LIFE). Your mentality is the downfall of human civilization if gone unchecked. Your meat/ dairy consumption takes an unbelievable toll on the planet and local resources. I’m pissed that there are hungry kids in my streets when we use 70% of our grain that we grow for feeding livestock for meat/dairy production. I’m pissed that this country is in a unprecedented state of heat and drought yet it is somehow feasible to use 2,400 gallons of water to produce ONE pound of meat. It takes 25 gallons for a pound of wheat(you save more water by not eating one pound of meat than not taking a shower for six months). A typical meat-eating diet takes around 4000 gallons a day, a fully vegan diet requires 300 gallons.
Because of your diet of slaughtered cattle pigs and chickens(among others) the biosphere is forever changed. In an effort to make more profit the companies in charge switched livestock feed to Genetically Modified variety. Up to 85 percent of all corn grown in the use is gmo, 91% of soybeans and 88% of cotton. Those very fields are cross pollinating with the normal fields through wind(or force) .possibly creating making nutrient deficient, RNA changing, and down right cancer promoting plants covered on herbicide an fungicide for our youth to feed on.
Like you said. It isn’t about Me or even you. Things are at work on this planet that you either choose to ignore or are simply uninformed about. Turn off your t.v and start asking questions.Look stuff up. You will soon realize that eating the meat and dairy is more expensive and bad for anything in the long run(which will soon be the short run as more untested processed food go on the market).
To make a long story short YOU are the one with the GROSSLY UNDESERVED PRIVILEGE. Just on water,energy,and raw materials alone you get to use a shitload more than over 2/3rds of the world. Not because you need it.Because you want it. Just remember everytime someone you know throws 4 steaks on a grill, the means it took to get them there could have fed roughly 60 kids on a vegan diet. Hmmmm who is privileged now????
(I am not even going to touch the eating disorder part cause it is not my expertise or any of my goddamn business but I will say consuming animal products and the production involved is beyond inefficient,unfair,irresponsible and above unethical on so many levels in any nearly every situation possible in this present time on this earth)
Oh yeah! I almost forgot….
Poor Lil Paul Ryan of the Day: GOP vice presidential pick Paul Ryan is a huge Rage Against the Machine fan.
The feeling isn’t exactly mutual, as a brutal op-ed in the latest Rolling Stone by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello makes clear:Paul Ryan’s love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades. …
I wonder what Ryan’s favorite Rage song is? Is it the one where we condemn the genocide of Native Americans? The one lambasting American imperialism? Our cover of “F**k the Police”? Or is it the one where we call on the people to seize the means of production? So many excellent choices to jam out to at Young Republican meetings!
Don’t mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta “rage” in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he’s not raging against is the privileged elite he’s groveling in front of for campaign contributions.
