stupid shit I’m sick of hearing which will never go away SADLY

"You don’t eat meat? Or animal products? So what do you eat?"

"Plants."

"BUT PLANTS ARE SENTIENT!!!!!!"

well yeah, but to a completely different extent, your argument is invalid and I’m sick of it

"You don’t want a closed relationship? So what do you do?"

"Don’t have a closed relationship."

"BUT LIKE I KNOW THIS ONE GUY AND LIKE HE HAD AN OPEN RELATIONSHIP AND LIKE IT DIDN’T WORK!!!!!"

well yeah, but like I had a closed relationship, and like that didn’t work, oh wait, it doesn’t mean shit!!! your argument is invalid and I’m sick of it

You care about social justice?

I do, I care about human rights and non-human rights.

BUT LIKE THERE’S SO MUCH INJUSTICE IN THE WORLD, IT’S USELESS BECAUSE THERE WILL ALWAYS BE MISERY

Doesn’t mean I can’t care about things your argument is literally the worst,  like shut the fuck up, I am sooo sick of the oh you care about X? but Y is worse!!! argument. no. go away.

So like, you don’t eat meat. BUT LIKE WHAT IF YOU ARE ON A DESERTED ISLAND!!!

Can all you carnists simultaneously move to this magical island where there are no plants? can this stupid hypothetical question die?

BUT LIKE SERIOUSLY THOUGH, WHY DON’T YOU EAT ANIMALS? THEY WOULD TOTALLY EAT YOU!!!!111!!

Because I hang around large predator animals all the time? Oh wait I don’t. I’m also pretttty sure that cows and pigs wouldn’t eat me, just saying. Your argument is invalid and I’m sick of hearing it.

You don’t drink alcohol? So what do you drink?

Things that aren’t alcoholic.

BUT LIKE THAT’S NO FUN… YOU DON’T HAVE FUN! YOU NEED ALCOHOL TO HAVE FUN

I really really really don’t, your argument is invalid and I’m sick of hearing it

Ida Rentoul Outhwaite (1888 – 1960) ~ The Merman’s Glass House ~ from The Little Fairy Sister ~ 1923 ~ via
I asked my ex, now good friend, if she would ever have an open relationship and she said, “No, I don’t think I could do that” then after a pause and a smile, “but what about love affair friendships?” She went on to describe an impenetrable fortress of female friendship, her own group of best mates who’d known each other since school and had supported and loved each other through almost all of their lifetimes. They sounded far more bonded to, and in love with one another, than their respective husbands. It struck me that we don’t have the language to reflect the diversity and breadth of connections we experience. Why is sex the thing we tend to define a relationship by, when in fact it can be simple casual fun without a deep emotional transaction? Why do we say “just friends” when, for some of us, a friendship goes deeper? Can we define a new currency of commitment that celebrates and values this? Instead of having multiple confusing interpretations of the same word, could we have different words? What if we viewed our relationships as a pyramid structure with our primary partner at the top and a host of lovers, friends, spiritual soul mates, colleagues, and acquaintances beneath that?

And I don’t dream since I quit sleeping
No I haven’t slept since I met you
And you can’t breathe without coughing at daytime
Neither can I
So what do you say?
Your coffin, or mine? Alkaline Trio - Blue In The Face

The night is aging as the sun warms your face
Won’t you turn around and stay for good, the air is getting much too cold
I am nervous and anxious, it really counts this time
And you know all my favorite singers have stolen all of my best lines

Well I can hardly wait until I get the sun and your lips both pressing on my skin
Well I can hardly wait until I feel that thrill my heart that starts inside your eyes
And a song in my head that burns so good on my tongue
Yes I will, yeah, yeah
Yes I will, yeah, yeah
Yes I will
