Take the Next Left

"

What if
all women were bigger and stronger than you
and thought they were smarter

What if
women were the ones who started wars

What if
too many of your friends had been raped by women wielding giant dildos
and no K-Y Jelly

What if
the state trooper
who pulled you over on the New Jersey Turnpike
was a woman
and carried a gun

What if
the ability to menstruate
was the prerequisite for most high-paying jobs

What if
your attractiveness to women depended
on the size of your penis

What if
every time women saw you
they’d hoot and make jerking motions with their hands

What if
women were always making jokes
about how ugly penises are
and how bad sperm tastes

What if
you had to explain what’s wrong with your car
to big sweaty women with greasy hands
who stared at your crotch
in a garage where you are surrounded
by posters of naked men with hard-ons

What if
men’s magazines featured cover photos
of 14-year-old boys
with socks
tucked into the front of their jeans
and articles like:
“How to tell if your wife is unfaithful”
or
“What your doctor won’t tell you about your prostate”
or
“The truth about impotence”

What if
the doctor who examined your prostate
was a woman
and called you “Honey”

What if
you had to inhale your boss’s stale cigar breath
as she insisted that sleeping with her
was part of the job

What if
you couldn’t get away because
the company dress code required
you wear shoes
designed to keep you from running

And what if
after all that
women still wanted you
to love them.

People who say that going vegan is too hard or break vegan 

a) do not know what self control is 

b) are selfish mostly

c) think they know everything and their uninformed opinion is holy

d) annoy the fuck out of me

Watch the whole talk here»

This guy stopped watching porn — and he wants you to know why. Gender activist Ran Gavrieli felt that most of the images he saw in porn encouraged negative, even violent, attitudes toward women, despite a recent wave of feminist porn. So he pulled the plug, and found that his personal sex life and private fantasies became much more fulfilling.

In his talk at TEDxJaffa, he advocates for physically and emotionally-safe sex, as well as erotica that shows a wider range of fulfilling sexual experiences — including the intimacy of human connection, laughter, and touch. Watch his talk here.

I’m truly baffled by the fact that “those” meat eaters (you know the ones) don’t realize that by eating meat they are indirectly consuming a shit ton more vegetables than the average vegan. (News for you, Sherlock. Those animals they raise to slaughter actually EAT FOOD and everything 🙀) 
… Why is this important? Well, I’ll tell you why. Because one of your poorly thought out excuses for not going vegan is that we’re hypocrites because we “don’t give a fuck about the exploited workers that pick our vegetables” which is frequently pointed out to us accompanied by the phrase “you probably didn’t know this”.. Yeah, I didn’t know that. It’s not like I’m fucking informed of that by one of you knuckle dragging mouth breathers every god damn day…
You consume way more vegetables than we do and then turn right back around and tell us we’re all horrible because we aren’t actively fighting the mistreatment of these workers? Solid logic.

The only thing they like more than making that argument is plugging their ears when they get called out on it.
