Liberal: We need to fight against this border wall Trump wants to build.

I’m frustrated by how often solar punks and post-civs talk about ‘turning our lawns into vegetable gardens’
Villa lawns and golf courses are bad, but the tiny lawn of our living groups is the one place in the sun where we can exist as queer, or mad, or nude as we like and the grass playgrounds in the neighbourhood provide local community building.
And these ‘lawns’ provide a free place to relax in a world where most recreation is commercialized.
So my solar punk future has lawns.
"pro-life" people Show more
"These people aren't pro-life, they're killing doctors! What kind of pro-life is that? What, they'll do anything they can to save a fetus but if it grows up to be a doctor they just might have to kill it? They're not pro-life. You know what they are? They're anti-woman. Simple as it gets, anti-woman. They don't like them. They don't like women. They believe a woman's primary role is to function as a brood mare for the state."
- George Carlin, 1996

vegetarian food and meat substitutes – a long thread Show more
So whether or not you're vegetarian or vegan, cutting down on your meat intake is a good idea for various reasons – high among them being environmental concerns and overuse of antibiotics on farms. It would be foolish to think otherwise.
The thing is, some cultures have been using meat substitutes in food for centuries. Either for religious reasons, like some schools of Buddhism, or among people who don't always have access to meat. So it can be worth following their example.
Humans are not evolved to be herbivores, and I really don't like all the people who say "go vegan" without also telling people exactly what that means. So in case anyone finds it useful, here's a little thread about meat substitutes to include in your diet, and nutrients to make sure you're getting enough of!

I learned English through Hollywood and video games when I was a kid. Growing up, my English vocabulary was reflective of this. One example is that until I was around 17, I only knew the word 'alien' in the context of space aliens. Then I started reading stuff about American politics and seeing people referring to immigrants as 'aliens' was really confusing.
