allosexuals are so weird sometimes you know?? like i was with a group of five allo friends and one of them said “i want vegan ice cream” and everyone got really excited and i was so confused because i heard that sometimes vegan ice cream means sex? so i told them i didn’t want it and they all got up and left (to have an orgy i thought) but then they all came back later with a bunch of coconut ice cream… i’m so confused guys allo behavior never makes sense to me :///

it’s sad that i grew up thinking vegans were preachy, whiny, and squeamish and that i would groan when so many of my friends told me “you’re gonna hate me but i’m vegan now” as if they were the delusional one. not only was i in the dark about the food industry and animal cruelty; i absolutely made no effort to do research… and yeah meat is really delicious and i used to believe a meal just wasn’t a meal without it, but after educating myself i just can’t imagine thinking that it’s worth it anymore—that it’s worth torturing an animal or increasing my vulnerability to disease. we complain about vegans being too preachy but i WISH i had the common sense to listen to the “preaching” earlier

The question of whether a vegan diet is our natural diet or the healthiest is irrelevant. The facts are we can survive and thrive on a vegan diet. The issue at hand is a vegan diet is ethical, it allows us to nourish ourselves without exploiting and murdering other animals and allows us to live in alignment with the values of justice, fairness and compassion.
—  The Thinking Vegan

Too many people think that vegans constantly crave meat, that we are suppressing these cravings and we have oh so much willpower to be able to resist delicious animal products, right?

Wrong.


There is no part of me that desires putting meat, cheese or any animal product into my body anymore. I think the smell of meat is actually revolting, I can smell it from miles away and it makes me feel sick, seeing people shove animal products into their mouths is like watching a bunch of barbarians feasting.

Of course there are vegans who struggle with cravings but usually all it takes is a good vegan substitute to change your world.


If you think all vegans constantly crave animal products and struggle to stay in control whenever we see a strip of animal flesh then you are so wrong. I’ll stick to my cauliflower wings and pulled jackfruit, thanks.

I am seriously thinking about to go vegan, just because to safe the rainforests and other humans and creatures on our beautiful planet and because it is healthier for your body. I know, there are a lot of discussions about veganism, but I don’t judge the ‘meateaters’, because we all have or own lifestyle and we don’t need to discuss that. Just be aware of what you are eating! Not everything is what it looks like. 

Still love all of my followers!

anonymous asked:

i'm a vegan (yes, yes, found the vegan, cut the jokes) and i'm new to the solarpunk movement. i noticed that the question of our eating habits isn't discussed much (or at all) and to me, a solarpunk-future is only possible if we cut meat, dairy products and eggs out of our diets. it's probably only because i choose this lifestyle for me and it seems so obvious to me, but why no one talks about this? any thoughts or ideas about this?

I think veganism makes a lot of sense in relation to solarpunk, but I think it’s not the only reasonable approach to diet – particularly because of the social, cultural, and survival implications it can have for a lot of marginalized groups and individuals. 

I do think that it’s absolutely necessary to end industrial-scale production of animal products, and that a more heavily plant-based diet for the vast majority is the only sustainable way forward. 

There are people in solarpunk who are vegan, and who advocate veganism as part of what it means to them to be solarpunk. There are also people in the community who are critical of veganism, for its connection in some cases to efforts to suspend cultural practices of marginalized communities, or the insensitivity that some vegans have shown to people whose economic constraints or health needs complicate the matter.

Personally, I’m not vegan – I’m a weekday vegetarian – but I support vegans and veganism. I feel a bit iffy about the way that some folks treat it as a personal moral responsibility, because acting like systematic harms can be solved by lots of people just individually making extremely complex decisions perfectly is a really good way to diffuse and undermine activist energy. (It also can have some purity undertones that I think are counterproductive to ethical decisionmaking.)

But I think veganism as a movement is effective as a boycott, creating a sustained and systematic demand for alternatives to animal product dependence which over time makes those kinds of choices easier and easier for more and more people.

There has been some conversation back and forth about diet in solarpunk, but I think it’s been a while since it came up, and it’s not always super easy to find histories of thought on Tumblr. 

All that said – I hope you feel welcome, and I’m glad you’re getting into the community!

Exposure

Going Up

Judy hadn’t known what to expect from life. But timelines are as uncertain as bridges to the stars, and she’s prepared to see where this one takes her. Almost. As long as he’s there with her.


I was going to make this platonic, but then I remembered that you loved Wildehopps, and I couldn’t deny you that.

But if you want the same prompt with a platonic plot, let me know!


She’s never had exposure to love. Real love. Not quite true- truth in itself was, by definition; accurate or exact. And they were neither of those things. Nick was sometimes too terse and she was sometimes too hopeful and they were a grab bag of will they won’t they and there wasn’t anything remotely true about the reality of them.

But it was honest and it was good, and she tentatively sidled into it with as much reserve as could be spared.

She asks him out. Tapping her feet on the underside of the dashboard and trying not to fiddle too badly with her radio. “Nick?”

He takes a left turn down fifth street and lets the wheel slide back through his paws. “Hmm?”

“Do you think you’d want to, uh…” tap tap tap go her feet- “we’ve been partners for a while.”

“One year,” he recounts almost lazily, his voice a twinge of summer days and sweet tea. “Or is it one and a half?”

“One and a quarter.”

“Tomato tomato.” He twists his head to give her that smirk. The one that always has her stomach in knots. Smirk number three out of his six smirk arsenal. “Why? You planning a party?”

“No. Uh- actually.” fiddle fiddle fiddle went her fingers- “I wanted to see what you’d think if I uh… asked you out?” A bunny of action was she, and beating around bushes had never been her specialty. Her arm was strong, but her morals were far too large to carry about sticks.

The silence after that is almost nauseating.

Nick is quiet. Taking the next right. Judy feels like she might vomit. Sorry, she wants to scream. God, she wants to barrel roll right out of their cruiser and duck into the sewers. Maybe she could live there forever! Become a hermit! Answer only to the call of the wild and tell no one about the mortifying moment where she asked her partner out in their cruiser.

Or… she could just be a big bunny, apologize, and then get home and bawl out her eyes the way she had at senior prom after she’d caught her date playing tonsil hockey with Jenny Clover.

“Nick-” she starts, her speech prepared with the twang of last words on her tongue-

“You know, Carrots, I ain’t a cheap date. Diamonds and flowers are all that really woo me. But if you’re willing to take a shot…”

The only thing that breaks her of her complete shock is smirk number five, and then she has to use every fiber in her tiny body to keep herself from throwing said tiny body across the dash and onto him. But she does well. Acadamy life trained her for this. And she sits in her seat, and gives a little wiggle of pleasure.

“I was thinking that Vegan place?”

“Sounds good.” He takes another right. “And I expect flowers.”

just a thought...

It seems like a lot of people I know who are recovering from an ED end up adopting a plant based or vegan diet. And we often get a lot of shit for it because “veganism is another way to restrict.” I think that on the whole that’s BS. ED’s are destructive, reckless, unhealthy. So recovery pushes us to reverse this and be constructive, careful, healthy. An awareness of food combined with this idea of minimizing harm/suffering–to ourselves, and the animals that food often comes from–makes veganism seem so logical. My life and my health shouldn’t come at the cost of the health of another living being. I think veganism embodies compassion for all lives, self-awareness, PEACE, self-love, HEALTH, sustenance, LOVE.
