Him: I don’t date black women. It’s just a preference.

Me: Based on what?

Him: Nothing, it’s just how I feel.

Me: Impossible, deliberate aversions come from somewhere.

Him: Its just a preference, that’s all.

Me: No, a preference is preferring broccoli to asparagus. You can say that because asparagus will always taste the same, even when prepared differently.

Him: And?

Me: And we’re not always the same at all. There are hundreds of millions of us and we’re each completely different from the next. If an employer said not hiring Black people was a preference would you agree?

Him: No, but that’s based on stereotypes.

Me: … And what is yours based on, facts?

I am beyond grateful that my psych intake is on Wednesday. One of the first indicators of depression is loss of interest in things that normally make you happy, as I’m sure you all well know. What you might not know about me in particular, is that no matter how bad it’s ever gotten, I haven’t lost interest in my animals since my teenage years, during a stage that I attempted suicide so many times that I actually lost count. I started my days with liquor and lost 30 lbs to anorexia in under 6 months. This is going on a week of my fish holding no interest. I try to make myself take care of them, do the chemistry that normally makes me giddy. Nada.  That’s it. I’m fucking scared now. Can it be Wednesday yet?

Easter is coming up! And it’s a terrible time for pet store bunnies!

Rabbits are marketed as “easy”, short-lived, starter pets, especially during the Easter holidays, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! A healthy, well cared for bunny can live just as long as the average cat or dog- 10-12 years!

What’s more, they have more complex needs than a cat or a dog. Rabbits are prey animals and do not behave or show affection in the same way as predators like cats and dogs; they don’t deal well with being outside-only animals; they can get sad if they’re on their own and don’t receive enough attention; and if they’re bought as a male and female couple, they can start reproducing from as early as 5-6 months of age, and they can carry multiple litters at the same time!

They have a specialised diet (NOT carrots!), need a specialised living area (unless you want all your things to get chewed up!), and they need specialised vets! Caring for them costs as much as caring for a dog!

They’re a big responsibility!

This Easter, Make Yours Chocolate!

BUNNY SAFETY SIGNAL BOOST BECAUSE BUNNIES ARE IMPORTANT

You know something I found interesting?
Is how when people meet dogs, they’ll say something like
“He’s so cute!”
And the owner will shyly respond with “she’s a girl, actually”
And the person will apologize and IMMEDIATELY start using the right pronouns.
So my question is,
If its so easy to do with DOGS why is it so fucking difficult to do with trans people?

Damn.

Because they respect a dog’s genitals more than a person’s identity.

Sign the petition: Support Winnemem Cultural Survival - Tell Congress "No" to the Shasta Dam raise.

winnememwintuvoice:

Please Sign This Petition to the US House of Representatives and the US Senate:

We are a small, traditional tribe in Northern California, and we are struggling to survive as a culture and maintain our indigenous religious practices, which are all threatened by the U.S. government’s proposal to raise Shasta Dam by 18.5 feet.

We were flooded out, and not compensated, with the building of Shasta Dam in 1945, and we lost many villages, burial sites and sacred sites beneath the Lake, a loss that still causes our people much heartache to this day.

This latest proposal would inundate or damage more than 40 sacred sites, including our Coming of Age ceremony grounds on the Winnemem Waywaqat (McCloud River). Representative Jim Costa, of Fresno, has introduced a bill, H.R. 4125,co-signed by a number of California Democratic Congressmen, to raise the dam. No mention of the standing debt to our people. Senator Diane Feinstein also supports the dam raise and will probably introduce a bill to authorize it soon.

You can make a difference to support Winnemem Wintu cultural survival by telling Congress not to authorize the proposal to raise Shasta Dam by 18.5 feet. Learn more about why the dam raise must be stopped at www.shastadamraise.com.

Please boost this!  Only through your support will this project be stopped.
