Do any of my vegan followers watch Hannibal?
If so, what is it like being a vegan and watching Hannibal? Just from being on Tumblr I kinda get the suspicion that certain elements of the show subtly satirize carnism. But then again it could just be another one of those narratives that glorifies an irredeemable yet charismatic antihero (and cannibalism does seem to be in style ever since Shia LaBeouf) so there’s no way to be sure.
I picked up on this too, but maybe just because I always have my ear to the ground when it comes to shows relating to veganism. I did think that the line “nothing here is vegetarian” (or whatever it was) was a way of showing how people will eat what’s in front of them without question of where it came from. But maybe I’m reading too much into it. I’m glad I’m not the only person who watches this show. Although I am wary of where they get the organs from.
Hey, Anti-“Bloodmouth” Vegans,
I’m allergic to soy.
Yep, because all vegans eat is soy. We just replace all animal products with mountains of soy. And then we drizzle liquified soy over all of that soy. SOY SOY SOY SOY SOY.
Wait… So we’re NOT doing that any more!?
I thought cardboard was the new thing…
Wait…. So we can eat things other than grass?
Hey, Anti-“Bloodmouth” Vegans,
I’m allergic to soy. And corn. And gluten. And yeast. And vinegar. And caffeine.
….but I’m still vegan

can this be common sense yet
It will never be common sense because there’s nothing about it that makes sense. The only part I agree with is about what someone is wearing, because that actually doesn’t have an effect on preventing rape in most situations. The other things? Those are, in fact, risk factors. Does it mean a person deserves something bad to happen? Of course not. What it means is that as a thinking human being with agency, YOU are responsible for your safety as much as you are able. YOU are responsible for judging the situation and who you are with. YOU are responsible for the risk you put yourself into. YOU are responsible for how much or how little you drink knowing that it limits your inhibitions and may make YOU consent to things you wouldn’t normally consent to, which is not rape. If YOU choose to get blackout drunk, and someone has sex with you in that state, THEY are the rapist shitsplints and deserve jail. But YOU could have done something to PREVENT it. This is not difficult.
“Everyone deserves the FREEDOM to go out at night, and to get drunk, without worrying about being punished for it with murder.”
“Everyone deserves the FREEDOM to go out at night, and to get drunk, without worrying about being punished for it with mugging.”
“Everyone deserves the FREEDOM to leave their house unlocked without worrying about being punished for it with theft.”
“Everyone deserves the FREEDOM to let their kids run around town alone and unsupervised, without worrying about them being punished for it with kidnapping.”
“Everyone deserves the FREEDOM to drive their car without without worrying about being punished for it with a drunk driver hitting themt.”
Of course they deserve it. Every human DESERVES safety, respect, and bodily integrity. But we don’t live in a utopia. And until we do (probably around the time pigs fly), we owe it to people to operate under the world we have. Stop telling people to be sitting ducks because for some reason you think logic that applies to every other crime doesn’t apply to rape. Stop telling me that taking responsibility for my own safety is silly, and that I should just trust rapists to not rape me. I’m more than that and so is every other able bodied and able minded man and woman in the world. - Stef
