A black man rides a bus restricted to whites only, in Durban. In an act of resistance to South Africa’s apartheid policies, 1986.
look at their faces. upset that this black man dared to exist in their space
It’s sad how terrified he looks.
the fear in his eyes man :/
not even “their space”. Europeans invaded South Africa, separated Black people from their own country and dared to be aghast at their want to considered humans. This was just 28 years ago, guys!!
Tell it ^
It’s gotten to the point where i don’t even want to be friends with people who consume animal products anymore.. I’m sorry, but i don’t care if that makes me an awful person. How am i supposed to respect your “personal choice” when it’s taking away innocent lives, causing suffering, demolishing our forests (every single minuet the equivalent of SEVEN football fields of land is bulldozed to create more land for farming animals) and it’s one of the biggest causes of greenhouse gas emissions. Not to mention 1 pound of beef uses a much water as 60 showers, and 60% of the worlds grains are fed to farmed animals whilst 21,000 people die daily from starvation and 783 million people do not have access to clean water. Can you even comprehend how incredibly selfish that is? Maybe instead of being angry at vegans for spreading the truth, you should start being angry at yourself for contributing to this massacre.
You are amazing, and I’m so proud of all of you. I know how hard it is sometimes, not to eat vegan, but to deal with people who are rude or mocking, to argue endlessly over the same bloody thing a million times with different people, to just try and get people to care, to not have your activism taken half as seriously as any other social justice activism. It’s draining and it’s tiring, but you are making a difference, however small. And I’m so proud of you.
We are animals. That is a scientific fact. We have always been animals.
Perhaps your idea of what makes someone equal to you is very different to my idea (and in my opinion, the correct way to determine if someone is equal to you) of what it means. If you are basing our superiority on how evolved we are, then I have to address a few holes in that argument. Do you believe you are more superior than someone with a mental disability? Do you believe you are more superior than a child in a third world country? Do you believe you are more superior than people who are incapable of reading or writing? Do you believe you are more superior to people who have no access to education?
Adding onto that, if we’re basing our superiority on our abilities, are doctors superior to you? Scientists? Astronauts? Should your ability to read, write, build, work, communicate or learn determine whether or not you deserve to be raped, killed, mutilated, enslaved, oppressed and tortured?
You are flat out incapable of doing half the things other animals can do. What gives you the right to decide what things make someone else worthy of life? How would you feel if someone was deciding that for you? Or are you lumping all humans together and basing this revolutionary statement on our collective abilities, whilst not being able to do at least half of what humans as a collective whole have done by yourself? Just use others successes to further your dwindling point, good move.
They are our equals - they share this earth with us, they are sentient, they feel pain, they experience emotions, they have families, they have lives and they are aware of what is happening to them and they don’t want it to happen. THAT should be what determines whether or not someone is our equal. THAT should determine whether or not these beings deserve to be mass-bred, abused and slaughtered IN THE TRILLIONS by us. Not whether or not they’ve evolved enough to use a frying pan or drive a car. That’s bullshit and you know it.
P.S animals aren’t controlling and forcing their dominance onto other sentient beings in order to murder them in the billions, rape them, steal their babies and milk, take their reproductive waste, skin them alive, brutalize and mutilate them, torture them, and inflict unspeakable pain onto them. They don’t do the same to their own species. They don’t go to war with their own species. They don’t destroy and pollute the planet. How great are we really? Does all that not make them superior to us in many ways?
So, do vegans not eat food that uses fertilizers? Seriously asking since, ya know, animal byproduct and all. Also, get ready to play find the butthurt vegan.
Yeah, you’re totally seriously asking. If you think anyone would take your insufferable ego seriously, you are greatly mistaken. =) How can you hear any answer, anwyay, with your head so far up your posterior?
You can choose what kind of tree you want to become
Idk I just find this beautiful
just imagine cemeteries looking like this
a forest of living, changing, beautiful trees. I think a tombstone represents finality in death while a tree represents the continuation of life. It’s like you are living on symbolically through something greater than yourself. Each tree in a forest is a soul.
I need more vegan blogs to follow!
