How can rape by giving a drug or intoxicant to a person that renders them unable to give consent have a minimum sentence of 0-15 years but possession of drugs without being used for rape has a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years to life?
its almost like we have legalized the systematic oppression of women and people of color
Today was the second day of my new job. All in all it is quite okay, but I know that I won’t stay there forever. I would love to work there for a while, several years maybe, and then go abroad for some months. And after that, look for a part-time job at a company that’s a bit smaller than the current one.
These are just thoughts I’m having at the moment; we will see what the future brings.
Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.
STOP. STOP NOW.
DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?
Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.
I swear people don’t even think this stuff out.
Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive.
Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?
This is soooo important!
"Zionism is an abominable, racist and colonial movement. Like all colonial and apartheid systems, it’s in the interest of all that it be swept away. My hope is to see it replaced, without any bloodshed, with a democratic, secular and lay state - for example on the borders of historic Palestine - and where Palestinians and Israelis could live under equal rights of citizenship without ethnic and religious discrimination. It’s a wish that I hope will soon become a reality."

Hate breeds hate is probably the most bullshit thing I’ve ever heard.
You know what hasn’t changed the world? Simply sitting by and hoping it changes.
You know what HAS changed the world? Revolution, protests, marches anger.
Anger and passion have changed the world and I’m going to be damned if someone tries to silence me or anyone else by talking about “hate breeds hate”
Shut the fuck up.
