Because they are trash cans.
Some dogs do well on a vegan diet actually - especially those who may have digestive or allergy related issues. This should never be attempted without consulting a vet (no diet change should be done without consulting a vet).
Cats of course should never be vegan, they are obligate carnivores.
If a vegan (who is uncomfortable buying meat products for their animals) is looking for an animal companion to adopt it is best that they welcome a non-meat eating friend into their family.
And if you are gonna make your animals diet vegan please do it from birth for the animals best interest.
…no? Baby mammals need milk to survive. Babies of any mammal species cannot be vegan.
And instances where people feed their dogs a vegan diet for health reasons it may not start “from birth” or a young age because these health issues pop up over time.
I promise to never unfollow you for posting excessive selfies. Selfie on, you beautiful self-confident tumblr users.
By vegan friend things do you mean stuff our faces with vegan food, and go to animal sanctuaries and cry every time we see a cute animal? Cause I’m in! As long as we make time for “shoving our beliefs down people’s throats” too. Because that’s oh so important LOL.
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.
Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.
THE LAST LINE
This. I am tired of seing this numbers without thinking about woc. (via arobynsong)
and now, imagine the number for a Black Latina. i struggle w/even attempting to make that math work out b/c i think i’m trying to protect myself from what kind of harm that may bring to me at this moment, as an unemployed LatiNegra in the US.
*pops out of the top of a cake* FRIENDS
I just had a really vivid image of you popping out of a cake (coconut to be exact) and I snorted out loud and startled the cat. <3
yes hi hello you called yes here I am
Oh my god we should be friends. Why aren’t we friends? FRIEND ME.
For real though, I’ve decided that we are friends. Even if you are anon :P
In our current socioeconomic model unsustainability, excess waste and environmental devastation aren’t just unfortunate anomalies, they are inherent. Any advocacy for change that looks to operate within the constructs of capitalism is completely futile, and any change…
There are more juggalos than polar bears.
Oh my fucking god this is the worst thing.
This is a very interesting question, thank you!
So heres the thing: I really don’t think reptiles should be kept as companions. Nor birds. And yes, I have birds! What I am saying is that while I don’t agree with it, I readily admit that these animals are in captivity now, it wont go away, and we must do our best to care for them. I advocate for adoption of exotics (provided they are going into an appropriate home) and I am 100% against breeding.
Snakes need to eat. It’s true, and I would never want anyone to deny them of food. I am VERY uncomfortable with the idea of feeding mice or rats…I have two companion rats. I totally appreciate that you keep your feeder animals healthy and safe, and that you do not feed live animals. May I ask how you euthanize them?
Basically, I am not really ok with it. But they need to eat. I just don’t want to see it, or hear about it. I love my ratties, and the thought of them being fed to snakes is terrible (thats why I have them, they were feeders). I only ask that your mice and rats have proper nutrition, housing and enrichment while they are in your care. Rodents, rats especially, are very intelligent and emotional creatures. Much more so than what we give them credit for. And please consider adoption for your next reptile if you haven’t already. :)
Go vegan. Everyday. Animal agriculture is the largest cause of global warming, pollution and deforestation. Yes, it’s worse than all the worlds transportation systems combined, and much worse than crop farming. Pro tip: cutting out meat actually reduces the amount…
I’ve seen the first article before and all I’ve got to say is, nope.
As for the environment…
I was so confused at first because I thought you were talking to me. Tumblr wont let that users comment show up.
Anyway, thank you for adding these sources! <3
