"I found that one quarter pound hamburger requires over 660 gallons of water to produce. Here I’ve been taking these short showers trying to save water, to find out just eating one hamburger is equivalent to showering 2 entire months."

I’m sure clearing the brazilian rainforests for soy (common vegan staple) has had 0 impact on the environment though :/

I apologize if you’re being sarcastic (in which case haha, hilarious, well done) but just so we’re clear:
“About 85 percent of the world’s soybean crop is processed into meal and vegetable oil, and virtually all of that meal is used in animal feed.  
Some two percent of the soybean meal is further processed into soy flours and proteins for food use… Approximately six percent of soybeans are used directly as human food, mostly in Asia.” 

Those numbers are directly from the soy industry (http://www.soyatech.com/soy_facts.htm). You can’t call propaganda on that at all. Then you gotta think about the fact that soy is in pretty much everything you eat.

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

Friendly reminder that anyone born between 1985-1998 didn’t get their hogwarts letter because Voldemort’s ministry wiped out the record of muggleborns

every 1st september we joke about getting ready for hogwarts to cover up the very real and very very deep scars of never getting our letters

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

Good example of why the submitters to this blog get so upset about having their pictures reblogged onto porn blogs.

my friend and i had to break a social norm for our sociology class so we drove around and catcalled boys (and one male teacher omfg) and they all looked so alarmed and confused and like they thought we were straight up crazy it was priceless and it rlly highlighted the fact that women just expect to be harassed when walking down the street whereas guys are just completely taken aback by it

this is a really important thing for people to understand

Ever notice how when justifying a child’s misbehavior no one ever says stuff like “girls will be girls” or “she’s a girl”, but the list of things a “young lady” can’t do is almost endless?

You learn from a young age that masculinity comes with freedom; femininity comes with restrictions.

Whoa

Pretty sad about Joan Rivers. She’s been an iconic comedian for decades now and it’s fucking annoying seeing so many people send hate/shade towards a woman who is literally on her deathbed.

you know what’s even more annoying? when joan rivers said palestinians deserved to die and now she is dying and people are preaching about how disgusting it is to say she deserves to die ha
