This image gets posted in the vegan related tags weekly. We get it. One ignorant vegan almost killed their cat because they didn’t feed a food that meets AAFCO requirements. Do you know how many people actually feed their cats a plant based diet? A really small number, but yet we never hear the end of it and anti-vegan posts about this garner five digit note counts. This is a hotly debated topic among the animal rights movement, with most being against the idea.However, many more people use products that are tested on cats. Everything from cleaners to cat food. One way or another these animals also actually die, some in suffering. Yet people are rather ambivalent to it. Let’s also not forget that billions of people financially, sometimes even morally, support industries that abuse and kill animals for usually no reason other than taste preference. Yet people will defend this to the death and get pissed when it’s talked about. You know what would be cool? Getting as mad about factory farming and animal testing as people do about a vegan cat almost dying. 

Oh my God. THANK YOU for putting into words what I could not.

You all derail my posts and say it’s okay to eat meat, but that we need to get our meat from local and humane family farms. Here’s what my mom had to say happened at his “humane” farm over the years.

"He only used it as a selling point. His farm wasn’t humane. He couldn’t have…

We are stranded 5,000km away from home. Our airline canceled our tickets. We have no way to go home. We need your help.

We are in dire need to return home immediately to formalize our stay in a country where we won’t get murdered for our identities. We need 400 euros/315 pounds/530 dollars to purchase a ticket that will get us there.

Read more and know how to help here. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AND HELP WITH ANYTHING YOU CAN!

Supermodel Andreja Pejic, known in the fashion industry for her stunning and often androgynous modeling of both men’s and women’s clothing, has come out as a transgender woman.

Pejic says she will only model women’s clothing from now on, and reportedly has the full support of her friends, family and agency.

Pejic said in a statement, “To all trans youth out there, I would like to say respect yourself and be proud of who you are. All human beings deserve equal treatment no matter their gender identity or sexuality. To be perceived as what you say you are is a basic human right.”

She also told Style.com, “I figured out who I was very early on—actually, at the age of 13, with the help of the Internet—so I knew that a transition, becoming a woman, was always something I needed to do. But it wasn’t possible at the time, and I put it off, and androgyny became a way of expressing my femininity without having to explain myself to people too much.”

Amazing! Congrats to her!

“which is more useful, chinese or arabic?”

And the last but not the least:

But why have you chosen Swedish (or name any other not so popular language) to learn?

Or “What are you ever going to do with [insert any language]?”
I guess communicating with people whose languages I speak is an option…
