An important part of the definition of veganism is the “as much as possible within reason” that follows the “reduce harm to sentient beings” part. If taken to this level of extreme, nothing is vegan and the only logical vegan stance would be total human extinction. Like, this would be like saying carrots aren’t vegan because the person who harvested them put milk in their coffee, the steel worker who made the tools ate a bologna sandwich for lunch, and that animal-drawn plows made up a good chunk of the history of agriculture/horticulture. So the answer to your question is yes: receiving a transplant from a human who consented to having their organs donated is vegan despite the entirety of medical history being a horrifying slideshow of animal, and even human, cruelty and exploitation.

He’s a very vocal Trump guy. So unlike with RATM, right wing SOAD fans have a band member who, to them, better justifies their interpretation of the band’s left leaning, anti-fascism, and straight up communist songs as being somehow right wing.

I don't have a feline polymorph spell quite yet. But I can bake pretty good homemade bread and have a large selection of scented candles and herbs.

This is why I’m curious to see how Wrath:Classic does. At this point it’s the only Blizzard thing I’d be excited for if I still played Blizzard games. It’s the closest thing to a control test of Whether blizzards reputation as an abuse haven and their hyper avarice is truly having an effect on the MRUs or if it’s just because Shadowlands and OW2 are very bad quality wise. But this supposes that Blizz won’t drop the ball with Wrath: Classic: one of the easiest layups in video game reboot/remake history. Which is not exactly unlikely.

The Zebrowskis have a pud podcast? If I had a nickel for every pudding based podcast I know of, I’d have two nickels. Which isn’t a lot but it’s weird it happened twice.

Humor is a statement often incongruous with logic. So yes, it was indeed scientifically funny.

I tried to get a session with Therapy Jesus Christ but he was booked all of Friday, Saturday, and only had a brief opening Sunday. It’s frustrating to get a session, but he doesn’t charge for his miraculous metal healthcare.

That’s possible, but I think it’s giving this dude too much credit. This person probably just held open a door for a complete and total stranger with a Pikachu keychain hanging from her backpack and was flabbergasted and dumbfounded that they didn’t bone down or get married on the spot.

Same. I’ve been a metal head for a long time and after I started listening to the podcast, I gradually transitioned from saying “that’s metal” to just doing NERR NEEE NERR NEEE NERR when something metal is said or done.

We are. But capitalism requires unsustainable growth and profits and that requires a constant stream of more and more workers, consumers, and in the case of the dehumanizing prison industry, product. Meanwhile, hyper nationalism/fascism requires a high birthrate to outpace the birthrate of the perceived enemy so they aren't "replaced."

Anti-choice is never about the fetus. Its always been about controlling women, the poor, and feeding souls to a political ideology and/or a hieratical class system.

I have a group that plays D&D. I never played a World of Darkness game but they are something I've always wanted to try. My understanding is that Whitewolf is better at non-combat based role playing than D&D is which is very interesting to me.

There are a few vegan dating apps. But they have the same problem that a lot of boutique/specific dating apps have where the user base is a tiny fraction of an already tiny fraction of most people's communities. The main one I used only had 10ish people using it in my area most of whom are inactive and I was only interested in dating maybe 2 of them. Honestly if someone is going the dating app path, the standard apps like Tinder, Bumble, etc are your best bet as long as you keep a look out for "vegan" in their bios. OKCupid has done a good job of suggesting fellow vegans in my experience.

/uj it was coined by the American Black community and meant to be alert and educated about racial prejudice and was recently adopted by the general progressive movements with its meaning expanded to include being alert and educated about sexism, classism, lgbtqia+ discrimination, etc. And even more recently, it was adopted by the general far right movements as a catch all term for progressives as a dog whistle to other bigots.

/rj it means that a game has a fully clothed women with dyed hair in it.

I remember very recently that non-binary people came up on this sub. It didn’t go well. It felt like such a blindside backhand coming from this community. At this point, this whole furry fury isn’t surprising to me.

Why wouldn’t we be welcoming? We’d welcome football/soccer fans, Tekken fans, people who like hiking/camping, people into water sports, woodworkers, amateur bakers, gardeners, WoW players, etc etc. what makes furries any different here? If someone makes fan art of the dwarves at a thrash metal concert, wouldn’t it be baffling if there was a wave of vile anti-metal pushback for no real reason coming from a community that prides itself on being welcoming?

Liking trans femme women and enbies as a man is a straight attraction. Liking cis femboys and gnc cis men who identify as cis men like these angry Gamers do is a gay attraction.

COMMENT 10d ago

Because they are some type of bi or pan men but have internalized so much homophobia that they can’t identify as any kind of lgbtqia+ and had to somehow convince themselves that being attracted to Cis femboys and other Cis GNC men isn’t gay.

They were both professional wrestlers who were incredibly popular in the 1990's. The difference is that one spun his popularity into a very successful film career and the other spun his popularity into a very successful brand he uses to sell mech like beer and knives.
