In my graphic design class, someone did a magazine spread about animal cruelty in factory farms, featuring graphic pictures of meat animals. It was met with confusion: why would someone pick this for a topic? Or using humor to dissociate from it: my prof actually said “Is anyone else getting hungry? I could use a burger right about now”. I used to respect him, but at that moment I wanted to punch him in the face. When faced with an innocent animal getting tortured and murdered, paid for with YOUR money, you respond with dumb ‘lol bacon’ jokes?? How original of you.
Every day people play with their dogs, shower them with love and affection, and then eat animals just as intelligent and sensitive and worthy. Wake up, this is a pathological double standard.
I can’t stand humanity sometimes.

Girls are raised in a society where flattering clothing means clothing that makes you look skinnier. Where fat is an insult more often than a noun and not just a physical description but a reflection of personality. Where “you look healthy” is what you say when a girl gains weight, but “you look good” is what you say when a girl loses weight. Girls are raised in a society that teaches them it is their own responsibility to be as small as possible because they do not deserve to take up space.
