lusitanoqueen said: Oh my god another vegan equestrian I love you. Haha it's kind of weird being vegan and equestrian because on one hand the equestrians think you're hippies who don't know anything about horses and the vegans who don't ride think you're an animal abusing murderer. Sigh.
Holy shit, that is the most accurate thing I’ve ever heard. I follow you on my equine blog (musicalfreestyle) and I know you’re fab! Thanks your the nice message!
you really need to drop vegan from your vocabulary
This is so sad. Vegans don’t ride horses. Why would any horse be content bearing your weight just for funsies? Is all logical thought dead here?
Just for funsies? Seriously? Yeah my horse gains absolutely nothing from having mental and physical stimulation and being trained using POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT. Yeah they totally hate their lives that why they canter from the far end of the pasture when I drive up, that’s why they basically bridle themselves it’s being they just hate me. Here’s a tip, fuck off and realize just because I ride horses I’m not some animal abusing monster alright? You may have this idea of black and white with animals but it’s not like that at all. And I really don’t appreciate how you guys think you can dictate scumbagvegan’s culture like you have.
So here’s a tip. Realize the world isn’t Black Beauty. Not all horses are abused. I’ll admit my horses weren’t trained with positive reinforcement because I rescued them (oh yeah did I mention my horses are rescued?) and they were already trained so. But from this point most training I do is positive reinforcement based. They enjoy work because they get something out of it, food. But no. I’m just a animal abusing loser who rides around whipping their horse because I enjoy torturing animals. Okay.
Oh and for any non-vegan followers (I’m still vegan thanks) this is not an oppurtunity to attack vegans beacuse that’s seriously annoying.
Oh for the love of FUCK, do not bring “culture” or “religion” or “tradition” into this.
I guess I should tell ALL of the vegan Jews I know (who are both just friends AND fucking related to me) that they are disrespecting Judaism bc they don’t have both a pascal lamb shank and an egg on their seder plate for the centerpiece of the table?
And don’t give me any “But Jews are white!1” bullshit or I will completely flip the table on you.
Many religions and cultures and traditions have included the harming of bodies in the past, as one big example is both human and non-human animal sacrifice. A majority of these cultures, one example being Judeo-Christian religions, have gotten rid of things like this because they are both inhumane and completely unnecessary.
Am I comparing the severity of living sacrifice to horse riding? No. But I’m merely comparing the getting rid of something that is totally unnecessary.
Horse riding is not something that we need anymore, especially for mere sport or pleasure. There are other ways, I’m sure, that you can entertain a horse without having to put your weight on their back and ride them around.
Using “culture” or “tradition” are lazy excuses to continue something that is exploitative. And considering the fact that we have objects now to use as transportation (bikes, cars, trains, airplane, etc) there is no use in riding horses.
Just because horses have been used in the past doesn’t mean they need to or should be continuing to carry people on their backs.
And also I don’t know who has been calling any of you directly “murderers” or “personal funders of abuse”; I find that a pretty gross conclusion to leap to. I’m sure all of you fed and water and exercise your horses fine and plenty. But really, why do you need to ride them? You can’t talk to or ask the horse in any way that a police officer can ask a dog if they would like to join them in the line of fire.
1. They are stopping people from giving blood to protestors who are bleeding out
2. They are forcing doctors not to report number of deaths and injuries
3. They have hit people with real steel bullets instead of rubber one’s
4. They are sending severely injured people home without giving them proper treatment
CAN WE PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS? Because literally nobody I’ve spoken to about this even knows wtf is happening.
Anonymous said: Why are you so angry about JLaw's nudes being leaked? I thought you didn't like her.
- i am angry because this is just another example of women being shamed for taking nudes instead of the douchebag who spreads them being shamed for violating someone’s privacy like that
- i am angry because nobody deserves this, regardless of how i feel about their personality
- i am angry because this is pure misogyny and shows how women aren’t respected in our culture
- i am angry because she did not consent to having those pics posted everywhere but they still were
- i am angry because on the VERY RARE occasion this happens to a male celeb he is not shamed but rather the perpetrator is and it’s forgotten quickly whereas this will haunt jennifer for years and years to come
- i am angry because this was a sex crime and people are treating it like a joke
- i am angry because she is being exploited/objectified and some gross dudebros are probably jacking off to those pics
- i am angry because people are CONGRATULATING the fucker who did such an atrocious thing to her instead of being appalled
listen i may not like her personally but the fact remains that as a human being she is entitled to body autonomy and to choose who sees her naked body and who doesn’t
We all stood together for Syria
We all stood together for Ukraine
We all stood together for Gaza
We all stood together for Ferguson
It’s time we stand together for Pakistan, and spread what’s happening there like wildfire. Don’t let people forget that the citizens of Pakistan are so much more than what we’re portrayed as in the negative light. Make sure everyone KNOWS what the Pakistani protestors are doing right now and the cause they’re fighting for.
