"Veganism is not about vegans. Vegans are people with all sorts of good and bad points. But that says nothing about veganism. Vegans are often the messengers of veganism, but don’t confuse the two. Veganism is the understanding that animals value their own lives and bodies, that animals have an interest in continuing their existence and avoiding suffering and that animals have the right to be treated with respect and justice and not to be treated as property. The logic of veganism stands independent of any individual vegan person."

"

But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.

This is what rape culture looks like.

This is what misogyny looks like.

THIS is exactly the kind of shit that shows how engrained racism is in people- there is literally nothing about this picture that points to her being a bad mother. Is it because she has short shorts on? A cami? She’s just a pregnant woman in a convenience store.
You would NEVER see that caption if this were a white woman. And the worst part is that nobody sees anything wrong with this. It has a ton of likes, a ton of people commenting and laughing and making gross comments that I don’t even want to post here.
I am so fucking disgusted right now.

How many white women do you see with their flat asses wearing shorts even shorter than that like I don’t understand why people do this shit. Leave her alone~Tae

how dare a Black woman wear something that is comfortable on a hot day, without giving a shit about what other people think of her

Hello, the dirty pony! Actually, I am against abortions, because I believe them to harm women more than help them. I believe in finding alternatives to abortion, such as social programs that help women in need, rather than aborting the "potential" life they hold. Sorry for any confusion. Peace&Love to you

You say abortion harms women. You know what harms us even more than abortion? Unwanted pregnancies.

Yes, it is really important to create social programs that help women in need, and it surely would lower the abortion rate.

But it is a pregnant woman’s decision if she wants to be pregnant or not. Simple as that. I do not value a fetus’ life over the pregnant person’s bodily autonomy.

You call yourself a pro-life feminist. I’m gonna need you to do some research because those are two completely conflicting terms. Feminists are pro-choice by default. You can’t claim to defend women while denying them reproductive rights.

"“Positive” stereotypes are anything but. Those who more or less fit into them are pigeonholed, those who fit some but not all of the characteristics are identity-policed, and those who don’t fit them at all are thrown under the bus. Avoiding such splash damage is as simple as remembering that people with disabilities should not have to achieve heights of perceived “goodness” in order to be allowed to exist, heights that would never be asked of those without disabilities."
