My anaconda will consider it

My anaconda has, upon review of the information presented with it’s partners, decided that it, in fact, does not. My anaconda apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks you for your time.

lycantrophies:

troyeuphoria:

THIS IS STILL MY FAVORITE THING EVER

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

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

"oh my god, you’re seriously going to pay college kids $15 an hour to flip burgers? get a real job!"

scenicroutes:

a real job? you mean, like, an internship at the white house?

image

okay, well what about the national democratic party?

image

what about interning at the united nations?

image

wow damn it’s almost like our economy functions on stealing labour from hardworking young people, regardless of whether their jobs are “real” or not

sp00ky-shucks:

things women worry about under patriarchy: rape, domestic violence, access to contraceptives, equal pay

things men worry about under patriarchy: getting called gay, paying for dates, why does the car wash give women $1 off on wednesdays

team i can’t do math for shit but i can write a 3 page english paper in less than an hour 

People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any

Romeo:
I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing
Juliet:
I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself
--
Romeo:
We should kiss right now at this party
Juliet:
No that is a super dumb idea
Romeo:
*kisses her anyway*
Juliet:
That was dumb of you
--
Romeo:
We should get married right now
Juliet:
We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?
Romeo:
Like tomorrow?
Juliet:
Sure, fine.
--
Juliet:
We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.
Romeo:
Right.
Romeo:
It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.
--
Juliet:
Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.
Romeo:
*immediately kills himself*
Juliet:
For fucks sake.
