When you say you’re a feminist…I hope you really know what that means. It means standing up for women of color.
Standing by black women who must deal with being referred to as welfare queens or ratchet.
Being a feminist is standing beside immigrant women who deal with wage theft, unsafe working conditions, and being referred to as leaving anchor babies in America.
It means standing beside Native American women who face domestic violence and rape at unprecedented rates.
It means standing beside Muslim women who choose to live out their faith and face Islamaphobia, sexism and ignorance constantly.
It means standing beside Asian women who have been misrepresented in the media to be thought of as only submissive and quiet.
Please recognize that feminism impacts the lives of every single one of these groups…but we are all women

Please remember that being vegan is a privilege, and that judging anyone for not adopting such a lifestyle makes you a gaping asshole.
Firstly, this guy is not a vegan. He’s choosing to eat meat and using a bullshit excuse to do so. Secondly, the fuck outa my face w vegan being a privilege. Vegan food is significantly cheaper than the cost of dead flesh and the like. STOP contributing to the bullshit idea that only rich and or white ppl are/ can afford to be vegan, you’re just embarrassing yourself
but there are people living in food deserts
Along with soaring food prices
Charging $8-9 for a pound of strawberries that go rotten in a day
$7 for for a pound of grapes that are already brown
Black berries and raspberries will run you about $6-8 per pint
Cucumbers run about $2 per
Green Peppers about $2 each
Yellow and Red Peppers about $4-5 each
I could go on and on
So I take it that person didn’t read the part where PETA said they’d only help the people in Detroit WITH THEIR WATER TURNED OFF if they decided to become vegan. PETA chose to make their assistance conditional. It seems to me that PETA, in this instance and others, is only concerned about the notoriety their proclamation would bring, instead of *actually* helping people get access to water.
