Guys it’s really important during this whole ferguson protest that we as social media DO NOT back down until punishment is dealt to those racists. If we let this movement die, then the oppressors win. I’ve seen stuff like this before and the majority of people stop posting about it within a week. We can’t let that happen, this is too important. so keep reblogging and keep posting until these darn racists are punished for their awful inhumane actions.
There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State.
As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion.
So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
And people say moderate Muslims aren’t speaking out against the extremists. Except they totally ARE.
My Dad shared a post about this on Facebook congratulating these brave young Muslims and he’s super closed minded so yeah. Good campaign.
Things that, as a mentally ill person, I do not find offensive:
- Using the words “crazy” or “nuts” or “insane” to describe something unexpected or incredible, such as “Mars has two moons?! That’s crazy!” or “Wow, those Westboro Baptists sure believe some crazy shit” or “that party was insane!" or "You really think you can have unlimited chocolate by cutting it a certain way? Are you insane?" or "One Direction’s fans went nuts when they stepped out of that chariot."
- Using words like “lunatic” or “madman” to describe someone who’s behavior is fanatical, like “Why is that raving lunatic shouting about abortion at this soldier’s funeral?”
Things that, as a mentally ill person, I find incredibly offensive:
- When you use the words “crazy” or “nuts” or “insane” or “lunatic” or “madman” or any variant as a way of dismissing me or people like me and acting like we’re not full people
- The portrayal in the media of mentally ill people as not existing beyond their illness on the rare occasion we’re shown as existing at all
- The portrayal of mentally ill people as dangerous, or more violent than mentally healthy people, or less intelligent and competent to run their own lives than mentally healthy people, and the fact that a lot of writers don’t seem to understand that “mentally ill” is not a motivation.
- The fact that every time there’s a mass shooting or a bombing or an attack and they can’t scapegoat a religion or race for the crime, the perpetrator seems to grow a mental illness just in time for the trial, and people think that explains (or in some cases excuses) what they did
- The fact that when people push for not allowing people who can’t use them responsibly to own weapons, they always seem to start at “mentally ill people” on the list of people who shouldn’t be allowed handle weapons, even though there’s no correlation between mental illness and violence.
- When people say “you’d have to be crazy to (commit atrocity)” even though no, sane people commit atrocities all the time. In fact, most violent crime is committed by people with no mental illness.
- The fact that I have literally seen otherwise-progressive people suggest that all mentally ill people be registered by the government, and perhaps required to identify themselves, and maybe imprisoned for public safety if the need arises. How would you have us identify ourselves? Should we wear a patch on our clothes, or just present our papers upon request?
But I think what really gets me the most:
- When mentally healthy people call others out on our behalf when it comes to things on the first list, but remain completely silent about, or even actively complicit in, everything on the second list.
Yeah, I mean, dogs aren’t biologically geared to eat legumes etc., even if they can survive on it, vegan dog food has a very low biological value for dogs b/c their digestive systems simply aren’t designed for it. Feeding such a diet exposes your dog to unnecessary metabolic stress, etc.
I just think if you care about dogs & you want to get a person who feeds their dog vegan kibbles to stop, you should try to educate them as an equal & be sympathetic to their effort to reduce harm, even if it is misguided.
Shouting “animal abuser” & saying things like “if you want a vegan animal get a fucking rabbit” just enflames tempers & puts people at odds.
I for one would’ve stopped feeding Kiyomi vegan kibbles way sooner than I did, if someone had actually tried to educate me about canine biology instead of sending me hate asks etc.
I think in general honey > vinegar
We did a lot of studies into animal biology at university and its relation to pet welfare and behaviour (as I studied behaviour and welfare). And while dogs can eat a vegan diet, it’s better giving them a wide variety of foods. Carnivore biology means that their digestive systems are shorter, to deal with the protein from meat. Their stomachs and digestive systems can be empty; in herbivores, they must always have some form of food in their system as their metabolism is a lot slower and their digestive systems are much, much longer.
Even wolves, a close relative to dogs, will voluntarily eat fruits and veg at times, although they express a preference for meat products. Dogs are no doubt similar. Cats will eat slight plant matter, like when they eat grass, although it has no nutritional value and they can’t digest it, earning them the title of “obligate carnivore.”
That being said, although I may not agree with feeding vegan diets to dogs as they require a large range of foods, it’s not necessarily cruel to give them that sort of diet, provided it’s nutritionally balanced; although people usually have to supplement diets with extra nutrients to complete the vitamin/nutrient list. The issue is when vegans don’t fully research the diets they’re giving to their pets, and therein lies the welfare issue.
Over here (the UK), it MAY be considered animal cruelty as we have to adhere to the five freedoms of animal care: a freedom from hunger and thirst by providing a complete and balanced diet for our pets.
Omg it’s Charmander, Charmeleon and Charizard!!! There is no escaping Charmander’s charm, and better watch out for Chrameleon or he’ll char you into charcoal, and you need to think twice before charging into battle with Charizard, the fiestiest character of them all.

seeing your NOTP (that you hate) on your dash, but understanding that it’s their opinion and ur not a hater
Feminism had a noble cause for equality until it became a hate movement .
People have been accusing feminism of being a hate movement since women started trying to get the right to vote.
YUP! Remember this when people say feminism has gone too far! Because treating women as full human beings has always been seen as “going too far”.
