“You Don’t Have to Be Pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”.” —
RIP to all the poor turkeys brutally slaughtered for this day, and to all the cows who are injected with hormones and kept perpetually impregnated in captivity for their milk, who feel separation anxiety when their babies are taken away from them immediately after birth; and to all the chickens who are crammed in filthy wire cages for their eggs. Be thankful you weren't born an animal. Occupy Thanksgiving and go vegan.
