If anyone ever tells you that:

  • The books you read are not “real books”
  • The music you listen to is not “real music”
  • The games you play are not “real games”
  • The art you like is not “real art”
  • The clothes you wear are not “proper clothes”
  • The comics you read are not “real comics”

It’s perfectly okay to write them off as a petty, joyless asshole and continue enjoying the things you like.

you are not on top of the food chain, your choices aren’t on par with lions eating zebras, a vegan diet is neither unhealthy nor expensive, there is no such thing as vegan privilege, it doesn’t matter if you’ve always eaten animals, hunting isn’t noble, fishing isn’t either, you are not an inuit, humans are not carnivores, you’re canines don’t mean shit, veganism is not racist or classist, cows do not need to be milked, plants are not sentient, plant-based protein is easy to come by, it is not your right, it is not a personal choice, the (phyto)estrogen in soy is not dangerous, dead animals are not healthy - every nutrient you need comes from plants, animals are sentient and thus feel pain - there is no denying that, the soy monocultures you are thinking of are actually fed to livestock not vegans, no, you can not love animals while killing and eating them, respecting an animal after you’ve murdered it doesn’t mean shit and neither does using every part of the animal, intersectionality does not negate veganism, veganism is not a belief and it sure as fuck is not dogmatic, vegans are making a difference, intelligence does not matter - sentience does, breeding someone for the purpose of eating them is not an ethical justification, buying local isn’t more sustainable or more ethical than veganism, taste does not matter, taking “good care” of them before you kill them does not make it ok, yes, cows are raped, no, capitalism does not need to be smashed first, human problems are not more important, if you are concerned about migrant worker exploitation - stop eating meat, no, there is no humane way to kill, rape, exploit or enslave, if your mom won’t cook vegan for you - fucking do it yourself, no a vegan diet is not hard or unhealthy, no, vegetarianism isn’t fucking good enough, meat does not make you manly.

i’ve heard it all before and none of this selfish bullshit is valid. you’re making excuses.
you are lying to yourselves and you are killing the planet and everyone living on it. animals don’t exist for your convenience.

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” ~ Bob Marley

This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up becuase if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.
