ETA: This is a scene from The House I Live In, a film on the American drug war and its effects on communities of color, education, the class disparity and the prison industrial complex.  I cannot recommend this film highly enough.

if your first reaction, upon hearing the statistic that empty houses in america vastly outnumber homeless people, is to say “well you can’t just give people homes, the housing market would collapse” i’m gonna need you to take one giant step back and figure out why you value money and unsustainable economy over basic human rights

  • Non-activist: Aren't you tired of being angry all the time??
  • Me: Yes. Yes I am, that's why I'm trying to change things.

"Let’s stop talking about veganism as a matter of compassion, benevolence and other nice-sounding, but ultimately anthropocentric missives. The idea that we are ‘being kind’, ‘acting compassionately’, or ‘saving lives’ just by being vegan is misguided. It’s also paternalistic. Veganism is a matter of justice, and it reflects the absolute minimum of justice that I owe other persons (human and non). That doesn’t mean we’re not compassionate people. It doesn’t mean we can’t act compassionately toward other animals (human or non). It just means that veganism is what we owe them. It’s not an act of charity."

"I think a lot of people don’t understand that when we talk about these issues—blackface, rape jokes, the appropriation of marginalized cultures, and so on—we are having an ethical conversation, not a legal one. There is no thought police. No one’s coming to your house and carting you off to Insensitivity Prison. But you, as a person living on this planet, get to make a choice whether you want to hurt people or help people. Whether you want to listen or shut people out. I can’t imagine why you’d choose “defensive shithead” over “nice lady capable of empathy,” but okey dokey."

speak gurl this is real

"Having friends over for dinner and you’re worried about what to cook because you don’t know if they’re vegan? Don’t worry. They’ll tell you all about it."

More vegetables are picked to feed animals raised for consumption than for people to eat vegetables. And then there’s the people who work in slaughter houses. Childish logic is to come to a conclusion without digging even one step further. And last I checked people can eat vegetables and care that they’re picked by immigrants with poor working conditions. Next you’ll tell me we wouldn’t have enough room to grow enough food if everyone were vegan, because you don’t know how much land is used to grow food to feed your food.

Oh, and if you are having someone over for dinner they will tell you they’re vegan just like if you served green beans and someone doesn’t like green beans. How good of a friend are you if you don’t even know if your friend is vegan? That’s a pretty big part of someone’s life.
