I'm 20 and study biochemistry. I believe that the existence of humans is generally unethical for both ourselves and our surroundings. Ideally, I would be a misanthropist, but I have ironically fallen back on Humanism. My blog consists primarily of posts involving art, atheism, politics, science, and occasionally humor. Anything that makes me think. Enjoy.

Cats and dogs are different physically. A Saint Bernard is stronger than any house cat, and that's why they are given different jobs. Cats can be therapeutic animals, no ones saying they can't, but jobs where an animal requires higher size and strength are better suited for dogs than cats. Cats can have jobs, but they have different skills than dogs and, therefore, different jobs.

So you literally hate all cats, then? Strength is a social construct, cats should be allowed to do any job a dog can.

Feminists have so watered down the act of rape with their B.S. “drinking” argument that victims of brutal rape aren’t being taken seriously anymore.
Kind of like the boy that cried wolf. He cried “Wolf, Wolf!” at every little thing and had all of the townsfolk on high alert, but he so watered it down that when the real wolf came, no one took him seriously and the wolf ate him and his sheep.
Don’t blame “Rape Culture” or “Patriarchy” for the reason that a lot of rape victims aren’t taken seriously. Blame feminism for watering down real rape.

It’s possible to be raped while drunk, but having consensual sex while intoxicated and regretting it after the fact is not rape. Stop trivializing a real issue and take responsibility for your actions.

The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.

At some point we stopped thinking of the future as Utopia and began thinking of it as apocalytpic.
