I care about offending carnists about as much as I care about offending murderers.
The most ridiculous thing about this kind of logic and behaviour is it doesn’t encourage anyone to change their habits in whatever arbitrary way you deem acceptable. In fact, it inspires quite the opposite because it makes people want to spite you. So in essence it becomes a detriment to your cause.
No one leans back, puts their hand over their heart and goes, “Well he told me I’m unintelligent and inhuman but… I think he really has a point.” And I mean, if you’re the kind of person who actively advocates for, in this case, one type of diet and lifestyle over the other isn’t that ultimately your end goal? To get as many people as possible to eat and live a certain way in an effort to put an end to specific issues?
We’re in a mayoral election season here in Toronto - maybe one of the candidates will walk up to me on the street and punch me in the tit to get their vote.
Fuckin’ weenies, man.
What Alia said
Look at this F’n boot.
Camp Fallujah, 2007.
To the people asking why I’m wearing a flight suit:
In 2007 the FROG suit hadn’t come around yet, but cammies were considered not flame-retardant enough for actual field wear. So there was this awkward couple of years where you weren’t allowed to wear cammies outside the wire, instead wearing flight suits, until the FROG suit came around (which is what Marines currently wear outside the wire).
Reposting with new explanation for flight suit.
Cable on Climate Science
Via the Union of Concerned Scientists:
CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC are the most widely watched cable news networks in the U.S. Their coverage of climate change is an influential source of information for the public and policy makers alike.
To gauge how accurately these networks inform their audiences about climate change, UCS analyzed the networks’ climate science coverage in 2013 and found that each network treated climate science very differently.
Fox News was the least accurate; 72 percent of its 2013 climate science-related segments contained misleading statements. CNN was in the middle, with about a third of segments featuring misleading statements. MSNBC was the most accurate, with only eight percent of segments containing misleading statements.

Also, kudos to MSNBC for destroying Fox News and CNN on the AMOUNT of climate science segments they ran.
