what the fuck america???

gobsmacked... america chose a misogynist, racist, speciesist, rich white man - anyone other than a womon - what the fuck america??? 

i read a brilliant piece on feminist current - "...Hillary lost, not because she was a bad candidate, but because she is a woman. White men won this election. Fear won this election — fear of the “other,” fear of losing power, jobs, money, guns, property, and privilege. Hatred won too — of minorities, refugees, people of colour, and, of course, women. The absolute unwillingness, on the parts of white Americans, to consider a woman as president won. Even women voted against themselves — for a man who doesn’t see them as equal, never mind human. Who, quite frankly, hates them." http://www.feministcurrent.com/2016/11/09/america-really-hates-women/ 

i also came across this stunning, says it all graphic (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CwzL_xYVIAA_cLK.jpg) ...



barbara kingsolver wrote a thought-provoking article published in the guardian - End this misogynistic horror show. Put Hillary Clinton in the White House - which is well worth a read...

i'm still stunned, needed to say something because it's horrifying on so many levels - it's just made this world that little more scary - yet again, what the fuck america???

Do Animals WANT To Be Eaten?

are they complicit in their own enslavement and happy to die for human 'tradition' and consumerism? are you one of those people who believes this absurdity? then check out what emily of bite size vegan has to say - succinct, so very true, as usual just brilliantly articulated...


it's time to change this world, time to stop the disconnect, time to end the cognitive dissonance, time to take the blinkers off and end the horror... veganism is imperative if earth and earth's myriad occupants are to survive... humans are not superior, we are just one of earth's many sentient beings - however we are the earthling species which has placed itself as dominant, participated voluntarily in the subjugation, terror and torture of others and proudly adopted brutality and destruction as our trademark and legacy...

sadly i no longer care if humanity survives - if 'we' don't change how we live and interact with our other-species kin and the planet then we're fucked anyway, but i do care about those we've denied equality to, those we have ensured remain voiceless and choiceless in this speciesist society we have created - we have no right to rapaciously destroy their home and continue to murder them...

please, go vegan for all earthling species, and for earth itself...

(by the way, if you're interested you can find 'suicide food' mentioned in emily's video at http://suicidefood.blogspot.com.au/ and check out 'suicidal tendencies' in the sidebar)

the herd..

known as the first feminist horror movie... "The Herd replaces female cows with female humans, and by doing so hopes to promote a greater understanding of the suffering inflicted upon cows in the dairy industry..."
