“Last Saturday, at The Earthlings Experience, I witnessed something that actually touched me.

When this man was told that we was showing footage from inside farms and slaughterhouses he said he believed that it was important that his son knows what goes on so he can make a decision for himself.
He asked Ben to lower the laptop screen so his son could watch and supportively held him all the way through.

He asked his son if he wanted to eat animals after he had watched for a while and of course the little boy said “No Daddy”.

He told his son that he didn’t have to, if he didn’t want to, and that they would talk about it more when they got home.

Now, imagine if every parent did this.
Imagine a society in which parents were honest about where their food comes from, wasn’t lied to by the people they trust the most and given the opportunity to make that decision for themselves.

Children are indoctrinated by their parents through sugar coated lies to accept without protest what we do to animals. I was.

Not this little man though.
What an amazing father he has.

Every child is a born vegan.
Every child loves animals.
No child would be happy with what happens.”

Autistic Hoya: Ableism is not "bad words." It's violence.

Hundreds of disabled people institutionalized, 19 of them slaughtered (25 wounded) in their rooms as they slept by a man who used to work at the institution and told police “I want to rid the disabled from this world” and earlier sent a letter to his government offering to wipe out 470 disabled people and idealizing a future where parents could euthanize their disabled children. 

In case you missed it, I wrote a response at Autistic Hoya: Ableism isn’t “bad words.” It’s violence.

ABLEISM is also the painful irony of once again hearing mass media frame the attack as a mental health/mental illness problem. We can’t even escape that ableism once we are dead.

HATE is not a mental illness.

(It’s just what it is.)

ABLEISM is not a mental illness.

(It’s the dominant way of thinking in society.)

EUGENICS is not a mental illness.

(It’s publicly advocated.)

Just. Stop.

Mariela Castro (b. 1962) is the daughter of Cuban president Raúl Castro and feminist and revolutionary Vilma Espín. She is an important LGBT rights activist in her native country, and serves as the director of the Cuban National Center for Sex Education located in Havana.

Her group actively campaigns for recognition of LGBT human rights, and also for prevention of diseases such as AIDS. Thanks to her efforts, transgender people can receive sex reassignment surgery free of charge in Cuba.

You knew who it was at the door, the fast constant knocks always made you smirk. Grabbing your black dressing down, you quickly sorted out your hair and put on a little bit of lip stick.

“Hey,” you said to a very irritated Tony. Immediately he was attacking you with kisses.

“Pepper’s pissed me off, now I’m going to take my anger out on you.”

I'm the fight pun anon and I have to say, I'm relatively new to the fandom, but you are actually my favorite account, also, do you have any recommendations of who to follow in this fandom?

Hello, and welcome to the fandom!

Aw, thank you! That is very sweet of you to say, and I’m definitely going to be beaming for the rest of the day, oh my word.

Okay, off of the top of my head, I would recommend weird-at-last, sexybaldwin, hisnameiscarlos, nikittypaprika (and her WTNV art blog cecilpalmersfannypack!), heroictype, walkingfashiondisaster, mr-reblogbuttonotterlogic, and hushpupper. They’re not purely Night Vale, but they’re pretty active in the fandom, and are a joy to have on your dashboard!

A quick look through blogs that I am following for active, largely WTNV ones reveals: gaynightvale, pretend-to-sleep, inside-us-only-starskhoshekh, nightvalian-dragon, staytunednextmy-niece-janicetamika-flynn-in-trainingtheoriesofnightvalehelloandwelcometonightvalevilevilescorpiofuckyeahwelcometonightvalenight-vale-community-radionightvaliandragoncecilbaldwin-fan, and anotherdearlistener.

Phew!

On top of that, there is also welcometonightvalemasterlist where you can find several massive lists of WTNV blogs all organised into helpful categories.

Hope this helps!

If you're reading this

Because of my time zone, this is posting during a time I’m almost always asleep, but I recognize that I have followers who are awake because it’s daytime for them. I just wanted to let y'all know that I appreciate you even if I’m never active when you are. I don’t forget about you all, and I’m really glad you’ve stuck with me. Thanks for that.
