So last month I made a Sheik costume from the SSBB/Twilight Princess character designs and wore it for the NYC Zelda Symphony concert and Halloween. I had SO MUCH FUN both making and wearing it I decided to take it to Anime Boston this year! I have convinced one of my sisters to go with me as Princess Zelda, and my other sister I am still trying to talk into coming as Peach. Super looking forward to the build on both of those, and to improving Sheik a bit before the con. Hope to see other SSBB and TP Zelda cosplayers there!
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
Basically even if your meat is free range or humanely slaughtered, you're still paying for animal cruelty. There's no such thing as politely taking a life. You can care about cats and dogs but you can't be against animal cruelty if you're paying for it to happen.
And you’re still paying for thousands of animals to be ground up, crushed, poisoned, and eradicated from fields to ensure your vegetables and fruits and bread can be bought for a cheap price at the supermarket. That sounds just as cruel (if not more) as getting a bullet to the brain.
Once again, I can be for animal welfare and be against animal cruelty and still eat meat. This shouldn’t be difficult to grasp. I can be against lighting creatures on fire for fun, hacking off their limbs, boiling them alive, making them fight for profit etc and still eat meat. Because one doesn’t cause pain (if done correctly, I can’t say that all slaughterhouses follow proper procedure) and serves a purpose, the other causes extreme pain for the sake of pleasure.
Just because I support taking a life in a humane way for the purpose of food and clothing as a by product, doesn’t mean I support killing every single animal in a horrendously painful way for no reason other than fun.
