Tumblr normally:man, our system is completely fucked. capitalism is evil. fuck corporations. everything is corrupt.
Tumblr when a vegan is near:THE MEAT AND DAIRY INDUSTRIES WOULD NEVER LIE TO US!!! ALL THOSE ANIMALS ARE HAPPY AND HEALTHY. SHUT UP WITH YOUR UNFOUNDED CONSPIRACY THEORIES, STUPID VEGANS.
Anonymous asked: That post was in no way implying your GPA should determine your tuition. It was calling out the bullshit that athletics are far more rewarded and respected than academics in terms of admission to universities.


Answer:

I didn’t say it was? I was just bringing up another point to think about regarding tuition. 

Sent someone a list of my kitchen staples, so I thought I would share with you all!

unsweetened almond milk, agave, extra firm tofu, nutritional yeast, flour, sugar, garlic, rice, quinoa, beans, all kinds of seasonings, frozen vegan meats (Gardein brand is my favorite), oats, vegetable broth, flax seeds to make “eggs”, maple syrup, Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (similar to soy sauce), tomato paste, Earth Balance butter, Daiya cheese

Anonymous asked: I thought I once read that it's actually harmful to bees to not buy or use honey because then they may go extinct as they're no longer "on demand" or "necessary" but I'm not educated on the matter at all. What do you think? I'm not trying to disagree with you or be disrespectful at all with this question. I'm genuinely interested in this topic because I am a HUGE advocate for bee support and plan to raise them in an open garden one day. Thanks for any input you can offer!


Answer:

Here’s my favorite link to veganism and honey consumption!

On the topic of bees going extinct, it’s possible to raise a colony of bees without exploiting them for their honey, royal jelly, etc. I think that’s probably the best way to keep the population alive without stealing from them. The way I see it, bees were doing fine before humans came along, so I don’t see why they would need us to keep their population going. There are theories about GMOs and the relation to colony collapse disorder. As far as I’m aware, no one is really positive yet why they’re disappearing. 

I’m sure my followers could add more :) I’m not the most educated on the subject. Sorry for the slow reply! Hope that helps a little.
