Could you defend your eating meat? Not in any way trying to start and argument even as a vegetarian, just think it would be interesting.

edwardspoonhands:

I totally can’t. Eating meat is bad for your health, for the environment, and it’s cruel. The only defense I have is that it can be pretty difficult to not eat meat in American culture…that I was raised as a meat eater, and I really really like it. 

Somehow this seems worse than coming up with some BS defense of my meat-eating about how humans having evolved as omnivores (we also evolved as hunter gatherers). But this is the truth…meat is bad and I eat it because it is often the best-tasting, simplest option.

Hello! Do any of you recall this amazing comic that artist Rian Sygh made? It was a really big deal to me! Rian is an incredibly sweet person and we got to meet at HeroesCon this year, which was awesome, because that comic made me cry in the best way.

Rian is fundraising for gender reassignment surgery, and a whole bunch of awesome artists are contributing sketches by donation. The financial information is HERE, if you are interested, and also on the donation page itself. It is a little clearer on the GoFundMe page, but here’s my deal: If you send proof that you have donated any amount above $50, you are eligible for a sketch from me (yes, me!) as well as a bunch of other artists! You do not HAVE to donate that much (heck, any dollar amount helps), but that’s the eligibility for art! I’ll only be doing a few of these, because my schedule is kind of crazy right now, but this is what you do:

  1. Donate to Rian. Any amount over $50.
  2. Send proof (a screenshot) of your donation to me, at kateleth at gmail dot com. In that email:
  3. Request any 1 character. You know my stuff. You know what I’m into. Don’t ask for the Supernatural guys or a Doctor Who. I don’t know that stuff.
  4. REJOICE!

That’s all. Pay it forward! Do a good thing, if you can! If you can’t, a reblog is always helpful.

(If you want a physical copy of your sketch, you can work out shipping costs with me. It’s not that much. You will need paypal.)

OK GO
