“Vegan alternatives are not inherently better for animals or the planet. Pleather and faux fur—staples of vegan fashion—are petroleum-based products. The environmental devastation caused by petroleum—climate change, oil spills, toxic water, acid rain, genetic mutations—are well known and vast. While many vegans will tout the environmental values of hybrid cars, bicycling, reusable shopping bags and eliminating demand for factory farms, the analysis rarely curbs the demand for couture. Sure, cows were not slaughtered for our beloved shoes, coats and belts. However, plenty of other animals were destroyed when their habitats were ransacked, covered in oil, poisoned and abandoned.”—Vegans miss the larger point (via voorwaarts)
Howdy! I am not so up to date with this censorship stuff that's going on, but keep seeing all these posts about losing all your blog content !! Do you know anything about this?
The govt was trying to censor the internet here in the states. Well they still are but, long story short. They were trying to pass a bill that would block file sharing websites. There was over 100,000 sites that would be banned, tumblr included, on their list. We all protested and stopped them from voting today. It’s still in the works.
