The chemical that they add to meat (sodium nitrate) to make it red and “fresh-looking” is linked to causing cancer. Buuuut, I feel like this is one of those things where people ask “what causes cancer, how can we prevent this?” and the simple answer is to cut out meat from your diet, to which I imagine the response would be “errr, let’s find something else that causes cancer that we can eliminate.” Kind of like explaining to a smoker the risk of lung cancer, in my mind. Well, now ya know, you can’t listen or don’t. As well as being the only known cure for, and best way to prevent diabetes (says the National Diabetes Association), having the lowest risk of heart disease, heart attacks, clogged arteries, and so on, veganism also prevents cancer.
I stole this article from my girlfriend, read her post here.
When boys of the Shan tribe undergo the ritual “Poi Sang Long”, the focal point lies in, what in the Western world would be described as, “feminine values”. They are dressed up in bright colours and adorned with make-up. The aim is to mimic the young Prince Siddhartha before he became Lord Buddha. Even though the purpose of the ritual is to show that the boys are on their way to become mature and responsible men, it is loaded with aesthetic values and free from any physical trials. This is what sets it apart from other typical male rituals. By Ken Bamberg
an assault happened here / stencil / bathurst & dundas
William Burroughs hitting Jack Kerouac
That would be me screaming.
I was at Hot Topic and saw this cool tshirt for some band or something called Bring Me the Horizon and idk what bring me the horizon is and don’t really care but the shirt is cute so i’ll wear it
This was an experiment. See how people started getting mad at me for “buying” a Bring Me The Horizon shirt, when I said I really knew nothing about them? How I said I bought it simply because I thought it was cute? Completely disregarding who the band was?
This is how people from other cultures feel when you purchase and wear garb from their culture with no knowledge of what that garb symbolizes and means. If you wear or use something for the wrong reasons, people get mad.
This has got to be by far one of the best ways to explain cultural appropriation to people.
