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?
I had to reblog just for “DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?" because it made me realize that some people really don’t!
Halloween falls right in the middle of asexual awareness week.
So, like, I’m not saying asexuals are super awesome skeleton warriors, but let’s look at the facts here…
STOP TELLING THE ALLOS OUR SECRETS
NO THIS IS NOT GOOD! WHY WOULD YOU PLAN AN ATTACK DURING THE TIME THAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE AWARE OF US THIS IS BULLSHIT
NO WAIT MAYBE THE ATTACK IS WHAT WILL MAKE THEM AWARE OF US
BUT WHY WOULD WE DO IT AFTER COMING OUT DAY PEOPLE ARE GONNA BE TOO AWARE ALREADY WERE NOT GONNA GET AWAY WITH IT
This is my favorite motherfucking thing about getting closer to Halloween every FUCKING YEAR
I saw this post by bi-privilege and I whole-heartedly agree with the notion that this is a preferable term or at least a good alternative to the LGTBQIAP+ acronym.
No more people complaining about “how many letters are we gonna add”,
no more groups getting forgotten because someone is too lazy to type out the entire acronym,
and to me it has a more inclusive and equal feeling for all included groups.
Plus, as punkrockluna pointed out, MOGAI could also be used as an adjective replacing the word “queer”.
Queer is being used by a lot of people within the community but we should not forget that it is also a slur and not everyone is comfortable with being labeled or even labeling themselves as such.
I would absolutely love it if we could make this a thing.
(I really really hope I didn’t forget anyone in the little description, please tell me if I have)
Re signal boosting
I like this!
I’m glad this is going around! I’ve seen MOGAI used before but didn’t know what it meant. This clears things up nicely!
This is extremely helpful
Marginalized Orientations, Gender Identities, and Intersex is MOGII
MOGAI is Marginalized Orientations, Gender ALIGHMENTS, and Intersex
MOGAI is the better of the two though since it doesnt give cishet women a way to squeeze in
Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.
Do NOT out anyone.
this is also a less important point, but still worth noting: DO NOT “come out” as an ally. don’t you dare.
Also - don’t feel pressured to come out. You don’t have an obligation to put yourself in an unsafe situation for any reason.
Now remember people, National Coming Out Day is on its way. If you “come out” on facebook as straight and/or cis, an ally, a brony, a fucking whovian, or anything other than a marginalized sexual orientation and/or gender identity, I will ram my boot so far up your ass you’ll be tasting Vans for weeks.
do you ever get weirded out by the fact that everyone around you is constantly within their own mind and thinking a million secret thoughts and battling internal struggles just like you and that you’re not the only one who thinks these things and that the people around you aren’t just faces meant to fill up your life but they’re actually really deep people who have a lot more to them than you ever actually even think about
