You can get Sheese and Tofutti in the UK as well.Also (not sure if you want to include this) Tesco is a supermarket in the UK that has it’s own brand of vegan friendly soy cheese and cream cheese. Tesco also has a range of vegan friendly foods such as veggie burgers. Also, Linda McCartney do some badass mushroom and spinach burgers. Cauldron is another brand in the UK that does falafels, tofu and a few other vegan things. Not a vegan company though, a lot of their good is vegetarian. Redwood is another brand in the UK, I think they are exclusively vegan. They make all sorts - vegan bacon… scratch that, I’ve just realised they are the same company as VBites!

"tumblr is great except for…"

the neo-nazis? the violent misogynists? the white supremacists? the glorification of mass murderers? the blogs committed to telling marginalized people to commit suicide? the pedophiles?

"…the sjws."

ah, yes, clearly it’s the marginalized people trying to get rights. they are the problem here. because they’re occasionally overzealous. or something.

"Stop forcing your beliefs on me!" whined the carnist as they ate the flesh of someone who was literally forced to die because of the carnist’s beliefs that they are entitled to others’ bodies

It sounds like you’re confusing carnism with cannibalism

Ah no it seems like you’re confused about what we mean when we say “someone.” You see there is this really weird, radical notion within veganism that animals are, in fact; not objects.

Here’s why it’s a terrible idea to let your kids watch Fox News.
While commenting on a female perpetrator fleeing to Canada after committing statutory rape, a Fox correspondent said this:
"If you’re a sixteen-year-old kid and you have sex with your best friend’s mom you usually get high-fives."
And Jesse Watters didn’t stop there.
"She’s not that attractive so you might not have that kind of reception … She’s not Debra Lafave.” 
This isn’t the first time a man on Fox’s Outnumbered downplayed the seriousness of statutory rape. For reference, see: Tucker Carlson, who told America to "lighten up" on the crime and said that men understand that sexual harassment from a female teacher is the "greatest thing that ever happened." A month later he attacked a kid for reporting statutory rape as "whiny."
We’re seeing a trend here, and it’s Fox’s glorification of crimes against America’s youth. This is especially problematic when an estimated 1 in 6 men go through unwanted or abusive sexual experiences before they turn 18.

How rape culture handles male victims.

Alright. that’s it. I cannot fucking take it it anymore. Excuse my errors but I am PISSED.


I’ve seen this .gif on my dash several times, often accompanied by “omg so funny/i can’t stop laughing/turnt up/he’s having fun/etc. ” I’m sure a lot of people don’t realize that they are literally laughing at an extreme case of animal abuse. Birds have a very, very sensitive and delicate respiratory system. It’s so sensitive, in fact, that the smoke from simply cooking food around them can kill them.
Ever heard of the canary in a coal mine? This was practiced because birds react much more quickly to toxins in the air, and it would kill the canary before the toxins harmed the more resistant humans, alerting them to danger. Now, many mammals are sensitive to smoke. It’s true that you should never smoke around any pets, however, it will not immediately endanger a cat or dog from a single instance of exposure like it can a bird. That’s right, all it takes is ONE instance to give a bird lung cancer, infections, or possibly instant death.

THIS .GIF IS NOT FUNNY, IT IS AN IMAGE OF EXTREME IGNORANCE AND CRUELTY. Would you laugh at a puppy being fed a pound of chocolate, or a kitten drinking bleach? I don’t think so.

"Oh but the bird obviously likes it!", yeah, I’m sure the puppy would be happily wagging away as it ate the chocolate, too. That’s because it feels good, tastes good, and because they trust their owners. Birds can have the intelligence equivalent to a four year old human child, so they learn to depend on and trust their owners. Lots of things taste and feel good that can kill humans, too!! You would eat a mushroom if it tasted good and you weren’t aware that is was deadly! Especially if your parents or friends handed it to you with an assurance of safety.

An animal can’t decide or vocalize it’s desire to use drugs, so why force it upon them?

Here is a small selection of notes I’ve seen on this post, as well as asks I’ve received. Notice the cries of “social justice warrior!” (what?? how is that social justice? I don’t know.) Also, every. Single. Response. I’ve gotten to my polite, reasonable asks has been negative and accusatory.

(go through the notes. and if you don’t believe me, do a quick google search on the effects of smoke on birds. do it)

ANIMAL ABUSE IS UNFORGIVABLE. IF YOU WILLINGLY ENCOURAGE, TURN A BLIND EYE TO, LAUGH AT, OR PERPETRATE ANIMAL ABUSE- YOU ARE A PIECE OF FUCKING SHIT AND DESERVE NO SYMPATHY OR RESPECT. YOU ARE LITERAL TRASH.

**(it’s hard to tell if that is shisha or weed being smoked from the hookah, regardless, both are strong enough to intoxicate a small animal ,and both are packed full of toxins.)

Hello, friends, this also applies to snakes and I wanted to share because I have seen a lot of pictures of people blowing smoke at or near their poor snakes. Snakes have an incredibly sensitive respiratory system and subjecting them or any other animal to this is not okay!

Also

THIS ABOVE PICTURE IS ALSO NOT FUCKING FUNNY.

THIS IS A DOG THAT HAS BEEN POISONED. IT IS NOT LOLZY OR CUTE OR “LOL DUDE THAT DOG IS TRIPPIN’.”

I’ve said a million fucking times already but: IF YOU ARE GOING TO FREAK OUT ABOUT VEGANS FEEDING THEIR PETS VEGAN DIETS WITH CLOSE VETERINARIAN MONITORING

AND YOU FIND THIS ABOVE THIS FUNNY AND REBLOGGABLE

YOU ARE SUPPORTING ANIMAL ABUSE YOU FUCKING HYPOCRITE GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY FACE AND GO LAUNCH YOURSELF INTO THE SUN FUCK YOU GOOD BYE.

Some people are just literal human trash.

Thank fuck for this, I only saw the gif circulating the other day with hundreds of scumbags who liked it and found it funny… jesus christ, tumblr loves animal abuse. :(
