If I hear one more carnist saying ‘yeah but I don’t push my beliefs on others so why do you’ i’m going to scream. Here’s my reply to you and if you can’t understand then you’re morally bankrupt and I hate you.  The thing you mouth-breathing half-wits can’t seem to grasp is that veganism isn’t some fad diet, it’s a social movement. A social movement whose goal it is to gain popular support in order to lobby against the atrocities committed against animals. Vegans feel compelled to speak out and to break through the denial.  Historically, social justice revolutions (for example the abolition of slavery, and the instatement of democracy) have been championed by people who refused to live in denial and refused to be silenced by an oppressive system. Our goal as vegan activists is to transform denial into awareness. That’s why we want our beliefs to be heard. You wouldn’t expect a climate change activist to sit down and shut up about climate change, or a women’s rights activist to never bring up feminism in conversation. It’s something that we’re passionate about and we refuse to be silenced.

This is maybe one of the greatest wild life phenomenon on the planet ever captured on lens!
In the sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico, a massive congregation of Munkiana Devil Rays, relative of manta rays, was captured by a German photographer Florian Schulz, displaying unusual event which he dubbed as the Flight of the Rays.
But as this wonderful perspective shows, for all the individuals leaping out that are visible at sea level, there are many more below the surface. The jaw-dropping image below shows only a quarter of the whole scene.
No one knows why the rays gather like this, whether to mate, herd prey or migrate or just for the sheer joy of being together.

India replaces the Ice Bucket Challenge with the much more sustainable Rice Bucket Challenge 

After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

It’s fairly simpleFollow micdotcom
