Animal agriculture is the number one contributor to human-caused climate change. Raising animals for meat and dairy consumes 1/3 of the entire planet’s fresh water, occupies up to 45% of Earth’s land, is responsible for 91% of Amazon destruction, and is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, and habitat destruction.

But “bacon”, right ?

if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

I even asked "If neither of the two people having sex has AIDs are they still going to get AIDs?" and I was told yes. And when I started my period, I wore pads for a few years, and eventually felt brave enough to try tampons. I changed my tampon every time I peed because I thought I only had one hole. I remember my mom laughing at me because I didn't...

Adults are failing our children at a mind-blowing capacity.

I remember sneaking around Walmart with my best friend in junior high. She was panicking because she needed a tampon, didn’t have one, neither of us had any money, and she didn’t want to tell her dad she needed to buy tampons. I kept asking her why she HAD to change her tampon right now, when we’d be back to her house in an hour or so.

She tersely whispered to me, “Well I have to pee, so I’m going to HAVE to take it out!”

I stared at her. “You don’t pee from the same place you have your period,” I said. We went to the same school and had the same Catholic non-education about our bodies. The difference, I assume, was that I found and secretly read a book about puberty.

We went to the Walmart bathroom. I waited for her by the sinks. When she came out, she had this look on her face. “That was so weird,” she said.

Later, in high school, my mom found tampons in my room one day. “You know how to use those?” she asked me, in that way parents do when they’re trying to seem casual but are obviously uncomfortable.

I simply said, “There’s instructions in the box.”

She replied, “I didn’t know how to use those until college.”

I wanted to say, Well, it would have been nice if you didn’t strand me out here with as little information as you had. I shouldn’t have had to hide educational books under my mattress. I shouldn’t have had to grow up embarrassed and confused about my body.

But I didn’t say any of that, of course, and I never have. That’s how we deal with anything vaguely sexual, in my house and in so many others. Silence.

The sex education in this country is so fucking terrible and then they act surprised that people don’t know anything about sex ed. It’s not something that magically comes to you, it’s something that needs to be taught, and NO abstinence is not teaching and it doesn’t even bother to teach about people’s bodies.

At my high school, they literally gave us plastic penises to practice putting condoms on.

They also talked to us about relationships and the spiritual aspect of sex.

  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson
