Nothing says “I support gay equality” like a straight couple kissing in public.

… I’m a girl
We’re both girls

nothing says “I support equality” like assuming someone is a boy because they have short hair

Can we talk about the “only gets it missionary” sign

They’re part of the world-wide movement towards ‘apicentric’ beekeeping – beekeeping that prioritizes honeybees firstly as pollinators, with honey production being a secondary goal.

Dandelions are the enemy in the war for the pristine green lawn. However, they are incredibly beneficial to many insects and pollinators, and there are a variety of ways to cook and eat them.

Large populations of dandelions can actually offer such a strong floral cue to pollinators that the forego visiting a majority of other plants on the landscape. This can be especially damaging to rare plant species or those that cannot self pollinate.

Indigenous People’s Day Photo Project 2013

"Dear Columbus…"

Yes. YES. Fuck Columbus forever.

I’ll always distinctly remember being a -child-, maybe 7? and even then being so horribly angry about Columbus. I was originally vocal about it. The real kicker? I quickly learned to shut up about how I felt.
I tried to talk about how infuriating it was to learn how Columbus invaded and destroyed an entire native people. And every adult I talked to tried to convince me everything Columbus did was totally okay. Apparently children aren’t supposed to learn about Columbus and find him to be anything but ~brave~ and ~adventurous~ or some shit.
I’m still, even now, fucking appalled anyone, ANYONE, could so easily and thoughtlessly try to indoctrinate a small child into accepting genocide of native people. It’s …disgusting, and so extremely telling of how far our culture will go in its dehumanization and erasure of the violence native people endured and continue to endure at our hands.

So. Yes. Fuck Columbus.
I hope someday we all celebrate Indigenous People Day and only remember Columbus for his crimes against humanity.

FRUIT LEATHER

This can be made with any seasonal fruit combination but I find apple’s a good base ingredient

4 apples, peeled and diced

1 punnet of raspberries

juice of 1 lime

2 roasted and diced beetroots

2 tbsp chia seeds

4 tbsp date syrup

water 

1. in a large pot, combine apples, beetroot and raspberries with about half an inch of water, cover and bring to a boil

2. reduce the heat and leave your fruit/vege mix to simmer until soft

3. pour the mixture into a blender along with your lime juice, date syrup and chia seeds and blend until smooth (add more date syrup if needed)

4. line your dehydrator (or oven tray) with parchment paper and spread the fruit mixture on top about 1/4 on an inch thick

5. dehydrate or bake at 45C until dry but still supple

6. carefully peel your fruit leather off the parchment paper, roll and tie with string ready to eat

When someone tells me that the world needs to convert to a ” plant-based diet” it confirms the fact that the person IS a lunatic and a liar. And when they come up with such drivel as you have without acknowledging what the other side has seen and experienced, and without verification, adequate sources, I know that these “anti-cattle” sentiments are more than just that. This is going in the direction of veganism, which I can tell you is NOT going to save the planet, but rather exacerbate the problems that already exist. So now I am calling you a lunatic and a liar and a blinded brainwashed individual that has zero sense of science and I wouldn’t doubt if you’ve ever been out in the country enough to see what I have seen. Only a fool would try to argue with someone who knows what they’ve seen.

And I say it again: if you want me to provide proof in links to what I was talking about, just let me know.

You want to think I have lost this argument. Sorry, but you have no clue as to the kind of arsenal I have at my disposal to prove to you how wrong and ignorant you are.

Ad hominems aside, show me some proof as to how right you are instead of parroting the usual vegan bullcrap that I’ve heard time and time again. Besides, bumper-sticker slogans and vague statements on how the world can be saved are useless in any debate.
