NEW SEASONAL EDITION CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS: HAUNTED HAIR COLORS AND SUPERNATURAL SKIN SET!
The Seasonal Edition Haunted Hair Colors are now available for purchase in the avatar customizations page! Now you can dye your avatar’s hair Pumpkin, Midnight, Candy Corn, Ghost White, Zombie, or Halloween.We’ve also released the Supernatural Skin Set! Now your avatar can become an Ogre, Skeleton, Pumpkin, Candy Corn, Reptile, or Dread Shade.
You can buy these sets between now and October 31st! Since they are Seasonal Edition items, they will recur unchanged during next year’s Fall Festival, but they are only available to purchase during a short period of time. (This is different from Limited Edition Items, which only recur if something is changed, such as the art or the price. Read more about the difference between Seasonal and Limited Edition items here!)
These skins may remind some of you of the Spooky Skin set that was available briefly last fall. This is because we’ve received many requests for these Limited Edition skins from more recent players who were unable to purchase those skins. As a compromise, we have decided to Retire the Spooky Skin Set and release some similar but unique skins as part of the Supernatural Skin Set. That way, anyone who wants their avatar to be a pumpkin can have their way, but the original owners of the skin sets still have the unique items that they were promised. You can read more about the new Item Availability categories here.

When disabled people say they don’t want to be treated differently, we mean we don’t want to hear your voice go up 5 million octaves as you talk to us like we’re toddlers, or see your face contort into a big plastic smile when you see us. 

We mean, treat us with the respect and dignity a human being has every right to.

We do not mean, ignore our disability and hold us to abled standards. 

Abled people just don’t get that.

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey

bam slam thank you ma’am

Reblogging for that lovely informative little paragraph there. Thank you. I love honey and I adore bees.
Please, vegans, when trying to educate about benefits of veganism maybe try to be informed? Most of the vegans who are mutuals are fantastic about this so thank you.

You can’t pick and choose what parts of feminism you want. You can’t support your queer sisters but not your trans sisters. You can’t support your fat sisters but not your sisters of colour. Being a feminist means creating a positive and equal space for women. The second you start excluding women based on which characteristics you do or do not find appealing you have defeated the whole point of being a feminist.
