    "I don’t really like people, but it’s difficult to get comfortable with loneliness. I mean, I’ve tried to have friends, but it never works out. And I’m tired of going out alone. I’m ok staying in at my place. It smells good when I burn incense and I have a lot of records and I can just play video games.” 

    The bus she was waiting for arrived. “Do you need to go?” 

    "It’s ok. Another one will come in ten minutes… But then, you know, sometimes I just want a partner— a relationship. It would be nice to share this part of my life with someone. I’ve been single for years, and you know, there are people I could call if I wanted to. But people always end up saying things that rub me the wrong way, or if I open up to them, suddenly they want me to be their best friend, and I don’t want people to have expectations of me. I don’t want to waste anyone else’s time if I’m not interested in being close to them." 

    Another bus came and went while she told me about the loneliness, wiping tears from her eyes. Then another. “I’m sorry, I’ve talked too long.” 

    "It’s really ok. Sometimes we just need to connect." 

    "Yeah, I forget that sometimes."

  3. Anonymous asked: I have rescued hundreds of animals as a skilled wildlife rehabilitator. I have spent all night awake caring for sick badgers, deer, rabbits and birds. But the fact that I eat meat means I'm a terrible person?

    vegasmo:

    It just means you’ve personally put to death about ten times more than you have saved.

    Not sure why some lives are worth saving and some are worth damning to a life of captivity and a premature death. That’s something you need to question about yourself.

    the same thing

    as people mass producing, forcefully breeding non-human animals, and slaughtering them by the hundreds of millions to be packaged into plastic wrapped cartons for you to buy from a store that you drove your car to

    shut up

    So one of the biggest concerns a lot of people have about going vegan is cost, because the popular narrative about veganism is that it’s a really expensive way to eat. While it definitely CAN be, it doesn’t have to be and I find that my food cost over-all is lower now than it…

    Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

    (Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).
