go home

this wins Halloween

I grew up a few miles away from Sleepy Hollow (although back when I was growing up it was called North Tarrytown).

That feeling when you want to know what’s wrong but asking about it might just make things worse.

I second guess myself a lot about this. Something’s gotta give.

That huge 3x3 collage thing that I got in the mail has evolved into four separate postcards, going to four different people. The guy who sent me the collage is getting something as well, eventually.

There is no more need to make anymore gifs.

People can crave for all the cuddles that they want. I prefer someone who I could prefect this dance with.

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

YOU’RE NOT MILKING THE BEES FOR THE HONEY
YOU’RE NOT EVEN HURTING THEM
OR THEIR HOME
FUCK, PEOPLE…

You left out the best part of all: Honey is bee vomit.
So in fact a teaspoon of honey is THE VOMIT OF 12 BEES.
(Yes, I know, technically honey is bee regurgitate because there’s a difference between regurgitating something and vomiting something, but that seems like splitting hairs…)

Well Tumblr it’s that time of the year again. It’s heart breaking I even have to remind people of this.

As we approach the Halloween season if you have a black cat [especially an indoor/outdoor one] it’s time to make sure they stay inside. Unfortunately around this time of the year people think it’s funny to harass and harm them. It makes me sick to my stomach but some people even go as far as to ‘sacrifice’ them. Most adoption groups won’t even adopt them out during this month. I’ve even heard of people trying to harass them when they see them sitting in windows of houses. It’s horrible and not funny but it’s important to protect them.

So if you or anyone you know has a black cat make sure they are aware of where the cat is. And if you see anyone hurting or harassing them [or any cat!] speak up, they can’t do it for themselves.

I have no respect for people that are “skeptical” of bisexual teens. You are the reason so many of us bisexual adults spent our teen years in one closet or another. Dealing with that shit was some of the most damaging stuff I’ve had to deal with and I will NOT sit idly by while you do this to more kids. So kindly keep your opinions in the garbage where they belong.

"Uni, you’re not gay, just bi. And not even that—you’re just trying to be different!"

Someone actually said this to me when I first came out.
