Kim Kelley-Wagner has two daughters who were adopted from China. In everyday life, they have been subjected to horrid statements from people - to their faces, to their mother as they stood by her, etc. In this photo collection, shared on her blog, Kim and her daughters (Lily and Meika) put these ignorant cruelties front and center. [x]
"I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."
seriously I’m just going to copy and paste my post from last night because if you’re sending me this ask you probably haven’t read it:
Have you guys watched my DANGERS OF SEA FOOD (Sea Vegetable Edition) video? If not, please do. My boyfriend had to go to the hospital today because he got mercury poisoning, all from eating VEGAN SUSHI a few weeks ago. He was having seizures and couldn’t stop shaking. He has toxic metal poisoning, which is what contributes to a lot of seizures. If you get a blood test done, these dangerous metals won’t appear because they are hidden deep in the brain. Sea vegetables (seaweed, nori, dulse flakes, kelp, etc) are all heavily contaminated with carcinogenic metals and really dangerous for your health. One sheet of nori has more mercury than a can of tuna, which is a LOT. Everything that comes from the ocean is so polluted and it’s really not safe to eat. Not only that, but the way they harvest seaweed is really unethical. Watch my video called Is Seaweed Vegan? The Ethics Of Seaweed Consumption if you want to know more.
this really needs a lot of attention.
I see a lot of vegans having a hard time learning that something vegan is bad
welp. time to tell the bf that we aren’t making that vegan clam chowder recipe no-sir-ree
I hate Earth Day. It promotes the idea that its the individual’s fault why our earth is dying and that turning off your lights is gonna change things. Like, no. Its fucking capitalism and those shitty corporations thats fucking up the Earth. So how about in the name of Earth Day we start a revolution and fuckin tear down our shitty government who’ll do anything for a fuckin profit.
Patriarchal notions of manhood don’t just harm women, they hurt men. Toxic definitions of masculinity lead to well-documented problems like high rates of gun violence, suicide and sexual violence. That’s why organizations like the Representation Project are committed to advancing the discussion about how gender limits the freedoms of both women and men. They recognize that society’s gender ideals aren’t only damaging for women; they’re universally harmful.
Their latest video examines how stereotypes constrain all people from the moment they are born.
