There was some report about Millenials, our generation, which I probably shouldn’t have been watching, because I knew it would make me mad…
Anyway, the guy noted that people in our generation, despite the fact that we actually get along across demographics way better than past generations and even are better at getting along with people of older generations… we tend to take less risks (especially financially), and trust others less.
Which the researcher attributed to “well it’s all that internet culture, they don’t know how to interface with people” and “they’re used to being coddled and protected by their parents, so they think the world is scary,” huff—-
he had like half a second to say, “well there’s a possibility that they don’t take risks or trust others because they’re in a state of economic vulnerability that makes it difficult to take risks, but my theories are-“
BITCH THAT’S THE ACTUAL REASON.
Quite possible the greatest tweet ever written.
WHAT IN THE ACTUAL *FUCK* IS WRONG WITH YOU? NO NO NO NO NO NO NO! YOU DO *NOT* COMPARE WOMEN WHO HAPPEN TO BE ANTI-FEMINIST TO ACTUALLY SERIOUSLY TRAGIC AND DISGUSTING THINGS SUCH AS SLAVERY AND THE HOLOCAUST. FUCK YOU AND ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS THIS DISGUSTING AND OFFENSIVE COMPARISON. PEOPLE CHOOSE TO BE FEMINISTS, PEOPLE DON’T CHOOSE THEIR RACE OR TO BE SLAVES. FUCK YOUR SHITTY RACIST COMPARISON JUST BECAUSE NOT EVERY WOMAN WANTS TO BE A FEMINIST OR ASSOCIATE THEMSELVES WITH THAT IDEOLOGY. GO TAKE YOUR RACISM AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR FUCKING ASS YOU FUCKING SHITWAD. THIS IS FUCKING OFFENSIVE TO VICTIMS OF SLAVERY AND THE HOLOCAUST YOU FUCKING SHITLORD.

So trivializing rape isn’t enough? ~mod luna
Saying that feminism is the only movement for equality is rather abusive, don’t you think?

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.
literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey
ARE WE NOT GOING TO DISCUSS HOW SHE FOLDED HER HIJABS TO LOOK LIKE THE HAIR OF THE CHARACTER, THAT IS SUCH A LOVELY AND GREAT IDEA. OHMYGOD

You’re a cool person and fun to hang around but you need to put more effort into seeking help for your issues. You’re bright and awesome but you constantly shit on yourself. You deserve better from yourself.
