why has no one ever pointed out how many goddamn cows/pigs/chickens would be running around if no one ate them. 

Has no one told you that humans force these animals to reproduce a ridiculous and unnatural amount and if humans didn’t do that their numbers would be naturally sustainable in the ecosystem they belong in?

one point to vegans

While the livestock we breed obviously have wild cousins, the pigs, cattle, chickens etc in the farming industry are domestic. Yes I am sure some of them could live in the wild, especially some breeds of birds and perhaps pigs. Highland cattle may do well, and cattle from Africa or India who are more suited to life on their own.

But most cattle would struggle depending on their breed, most sheep have been engineered so that they need to be shorn, and those giant turkeys killed for thanksgiving can’t perch after a certain age because we’ve made them grow too big too fast.

If people stopped eating meat (which would only happen gradually, let’s be logical here for a second) farmers would gradually stop breeding so many of them. To keep up the same amount of breeding while customers go down makes no sense (basic economy 101 here).

Any livestock that is around after everyone stopped eating them would likely go into sanctuaries (if we had them in this theoretical world). Or they may be companions. Or maybe there wouldn’t be many.

So what I am saying is: this argument is beyond illogical and I don’t know why nonvegans think this will win them any points.

Spent nearly three hours discussing mage rights with dorianpavus (who I met on tumblr). A guy with EXACTLY Dorian’s hair, moustache, and beard walked by as well. There were no survivors.

vodkatampons said: Why you no @me??

omg Because you weren’t there when Dorian showed up.

Everyone, vodkatampons was not only present to discuss the ethics of blood magic, but also introduced me to dorianpavus.  All should follow both of them.

Not trying to shit on Makorra or anything, but here’s something kind of odd that I noticed.

In Season 2, Korra went through a very stressful period, and she undoubtedly wasn’t the most pleasant person to be around. But Mako basically responded with something equivalent to: “I can’t handle you when you’re like this” and ended their relationship more on his own terms. And despite her arguably horrid behavior, Korra needed that support which Mako refused to give her.

Now, we’re at the end of Season 3, and Korra is not okay. True, she isn’t  violent and belligerent now like she was in the first half of Season 2, but she’s still not herself by any means. And Asami tells her that it’s okay for her to feel depressed and not be at one hundred percent. It’s okay for her to feel utterly spent physically and emotionally and not be able to bounce back right away.

Asami, unlike Mako, offers Korra her unconditional support, without  insinuating that how Korra is acting is wrong in any way.

And I think that’s beautiful.
