"A republican president ended slavery."

"Yes, a liberal Republican. What happened to them? They got run out of your party. What did liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican party? I’ll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created social security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed every one of those programs. Every one. So when you try to hurl the word ‘liberal’ at my feet, as if it were dirty, something to run away from, something that I should be ashamed of, it won’t work, Senator, because I will pick up that label and wear it as a badge of honor."

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

Note how Weird Al doesn’t make songs mocking fat people anymore either. It’s almost like people are capable of learning and changing their behavior for the better.


I don’t always say the right thing. I don’t expect everyone else too, either. But it’s how you react to being called out on your mistakes. Weird Al is the man.

"Veganism is not about vegans. Vegans are people with all sorts of good and bad points. But that says nothing about veganism. Vegans are often the messengers of veganism, but don’t confuse the two. Veganism is the understanding that animals value their own lives and bodies, that animals have an interest in continuing their existence and avoiding suffering and that animals have the right to be treated with respect and justice and not to be treated as property. The logic of veganism stands independent of any individual vegan person."

I’ve got a case of the feels.

Whenever I hear an ex is dating sometime new I get a little sad. I’m happy for them, but sad for me. I’m afraid the strength of my convictions make it near impossible to find someone I’d be compatible with in the long term.

Then I eat some candy, masturbate, and take a nap.

I’d rather be picky than miserable.

Yes I certainly did, difference being when someone showed me what I was contributing to, told me that doing so was immoral and explained why the way I viewed non human animals was bigoted, I didn’t cry like a baby, throw a shit fit and bend over backwards trying to justify my actions. I just apologized for my ignorance and changed my lifestyle accordingly. You know, like an adult.
