Me: No I hit myself in the leg with the hair dryer yesterday.

caring more about animals than humans is not a sign of empathy, it is a way to distance yourself from problems that makes you uncomfortable.

when you talk about the treatment of animals and say “what if this was done to humans!?” remember that this was, or still is done to humans.

I have zero patience for people who prioritize Veganism over anti-racism and feminism

Exactly my stance.

I don’t disagree exactly except to add that people who campaign for animal rights have to hear “but why don’t you care about people??!!” all the bloody time. 

Like, I do care about people, but this conversation is about animals.

I find the same thing happens when I’m working on feminism. Some one always ALWAYS says “but why can’t it just be human rights?”

People can care about more than one thing and still want to deal with them one at a time. Lots of vegans are also feminists and vice versa, but at a forum on feminism they’re not going to be bringing up fur farming. 

If I’m campaigning against LGBTQ bullying I’m not going to start talking about recycling but I think that’s important as well. 

Lots of human rights activists care about the environment, lots of anti-racism activists like animals. WE CAN ARE ABOUT MORE THAN ONE THING. 

But derailing a discussion to be like “but what about this unrelated topic…” is, the majority of the time, just obnoxious.

Tits and Trolls An Original Song

My first ever song on YouTube! This is based on the experiences of YouTubers that I know, my experiences have been surprisingly positive all in all online. It’s the real world where I encounter my worst trolls. 

Music and Lyrics such as they are by me, copyright and all that jazz.

New videos every Friday (sometimes Tuesday if you’re good)

Dear Potential Future Employer

 

So I got super sick of people saying “what if a future potential employer googles you” so I made a thing.

“Google my name at your own risk!”
