Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.  —Monica Sjoo, The Great Cosmic Mother: Rediscovering the Religion of the Earth   (via onigiri85)

Cheap Vegan Grocery List 
Since the Cheap Vegan Pantry article has been so popular, I am (by request) following up with a Cheap Vegan Grocery List. Here I’ll explain the different strategies I use and items I buy to stay healthy on a budget.
When you go to the grocery store, have in mind what percentage of what types of food you plan to buy. This should mirror your ideal plate of food. My goal is to eat mostly whole foods (foods that have not been processed), as many organic foods as I can afford to splurge on, and as little sugar and processed foods as possible. Besides obvious sugar like corn syrup, sugars also include white bread/pasta, anything made with white flour.
Once you have mentally prepared yourself for grocery shopping, you start from the bottom up. I shop at a few different sources to get what I need for the best bargain. Luckily, all of these places are walking distance to my house. But do what works best for you! If you’d rather only go to only one place, that might be more valuable than the $10-20 bucks you save a week going to multiple stores.
Start Literally Dirt-cheapTo start, check your garden. Whether you’re just planting some herbs or you have a whole veggie garden, there’s nothing better than home-grown food. As Ron Finley says, “Planting your own food is like printing your own money …plus you get strawberries.”
If you happen to get to a farmers market, check out their $1 rack. Often times they’ll have good deals of food they have too much of.
Figuratively Dirt CheapNext I go to the 99cent and up store—and I know what you’re thinking, we just went from the garden to the dollar store, but I’m broke people! …plus they’re really not all that bad. Especially here in Los Angeles! People tend to get sketched out by the dollar store but you just have to use common sense. If something looks a little suspect, don’t buy it. A lot of the food is even the same brand as what you’d get at a grocery store, just overstock.
At the 99c store I buy:
Romaine Lettuce
Any pre-cut, easy to prepare veggies that look good (ex. Shredded purple cabbage, carrots, etc.)
Salsa
Tortilla Chips
Canned beans (at my location they have a variety of organic beans for a buck!)
Corn Tortillas
Canned Tomato Sauce/Diced tomatoes
Random canned goods I might need
Soy Milk
Brown Rice
Oatmeal
If I needed anything else I couldn’t find at the dollar store my next stop is usually my local…
The Mexican Super Market!In LA I go to JON’s in Chicago I went to Devon Market, but most cities have their own Mexican supermarkets where you can get produce for a little cheaper.
Here I buy:Bananas
Apples
Cucumbers
Bell Peppers
Any other produce I have a recipe in mind for
Frozen Veggies
Almond Milk
Cereal
Nuts
Baking Items
Whole grain pastas
 Lastly, if I’m feeling a little fancy, having a craving, or just can’t find it at those two places, I go to…
The Bougie spots: Trader Joes and Whole Foods
Where I get…
Tempeh
Tofu
Low sugarGranola (a lot of times granola has just as much sugar as cereal like frosted flakes or cocoa pebbles)Dr. Praegers veggie burgers (where their motto is making the ingredients recognizable)
Trader Joe’s Tomatillo and Roasted Yellow Chilli Salsa (because it’s BOMB)
Nutritional Yeast
Natural Peanut Butter
Natural Almond Butter
Ezikiel Bread
…any little things that I can afford to splurge on
Extra tips…
Always look for bargains. If there is a discount rack, start there, then move to the sections you would usually go to and keep looking for deals. If you’re afraid you can’t eat the 2 for 1 case of fruit, remember freezing. You can always save it for a smoothie or banana whip later! Same goes for canned goods and non-perishable foods. Sometimes buying in bulk can save you some cash in the long run. 
I thought vegan food was expensive…A big misconception about being vegan, and why many think it’s so expensive to eat a plant-based diet, is because of the processed foods that are catered to vegan consumers. Foods like Tofurky, Boca Burgers, Amy’s frozen dinners, daiya, and other pre-made vegan “meats” and “cheeses” are simply more expensive than produce AND worse than that, they’re not as healthy! It’s easy to be a healthy cheap vegan, but start throwing in processed foods and sugars and you start to dive into expensive territory. So make the healthier and less expensive choice and eat your whole fruits and veggies!

I am so relieved that I can finally debut this Sailor Moon piece.  It’s been finished for quite some time now but my twin Benjamin Anders has been holding it ransom. Needless to say he has finally revealed his incredible redesigns of the Sailor Scouts, so please go give him some love! 
Anyways this isn’t the last Sailor Moon piece from me. Get ready for something special…

Real talk: I would be terrified to date you. by Anonymous

candidlycara:

Good.

I literally get messages like this EVERYDAY which only exemplifies and showcases why feminism has so much work left to do. At the end of the day, even after all the substantial shit I say and do on this medium and in my life, men still insist on reducing my worth to whether they would date me or not.

Spoiler: I don’t want to date you and dating is not, and probably will not, be a priority for me ever. Period, the end, fuck you.

Now let’s talk about classism, feminism, humanism, racism, and the prison industrial complex, yes? Let’s talk about access to education, wealth distribution, and expanding socialist ideals. Let’s discuss art in all its forms. NOT how much your metaphorical tiny shit dick shrivels at the thought that I wouldn’t put up with your outdated problematic as fuck notions of humanity you revolting toad.

Wait a minute…

I have been laughing at this for hours now…

So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s been several articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.  
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven. 
Good job Internet.

Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.

Every year several newly-born piglets are brought to us which have been found on main roads where there isn’t a pig farm nearby. Sows often give birth on the way to the slaughterhouse and the piglets fall from the slats on the lorries onto the highway. One slaughterhouse worker told us how sows often arrive at the abattoir having given birth on their final journey and the piglets are left floundering around on the lorry until somebody ‘dispatches them’. The farming industry will try to deny that this happens.Hillside Animal Sanctuary
