Fuck PETA. They’re offering to help ten families in Detroit with their bills if they agree to become vegan.
Holy shit that is some straight up white saviour missionary style bullshit. Only with quinoa instead of bibles.

"Charity with conditions is not charity at all, but control … and publicity."
Mary-Faith Cerasoli, above, is “sleeping in her car, showering at college athletic centers and applying for food stamps.”
“They call us professors, but they’re paying us at poverty levels…I just want to make a living from a skill I’ve spent 30 years developing.”
“Students aren’t getting what they pay for or, if they are, it is because adjuncts themselves are subsidizing their education.”
Wanna know how much I got paid for the last class I taught?? Not $500 a credit, which is typical of most places. I got $0. Nothing. It was considered part of my other job duties at the college. So you can be staff, be under-paid and under-appreciated and part-time, then also be “made” faculty as part of “other duties as assigned.” Yup.
The job that I kinda sorta had my heart set on coming out to AZ is no longer available. Plus, they have a new way of hiring…you have to go through HR instead of talking directly to organizers/directors.
So back to square one. And it looks like most people want a valid AZ drivers license soooooo ….I need to do that.
Photo by Susan Hessing Photography/Facebook Miss Idaho, aka Sierra Anne Sandison, could certainly be posting pictures of crowns and jewels all over her Twitter page. Sandison, a 20-year-old diabetic, was crowned Miss Idaho last Saturday and has talked openly about how she felt when she got diagnosed with type 1 adult-onset diabetes in 2012. She tweeted a picture of herself lying on her bed, wearing her Miss Idaho sash and crown, a Wonder Woman sweatshirt, and an insulin pump. “My world was flipped upside down by my diabetes diagnosis,” Sandison wrote in her official Miss Idaho blog.
