Pet Peeve of the Day [Aug. 19th, 2009|09:45 am]

Today's pet peeve is people who use apps to crosspost their twitter feed to Livejournal. I wanna know what you're tweeting, I'll follow you on Twitter, kay?

Also bugs me when you crosstweet on facebook, but I'm learning to live with that. :P

You can follow me on Twitter @JulieMAwesome and I have a tweet going out on @tweetthemeat tomorrow evening. So follow them too.

(Like how I snuck that plug into the peeve?)

If you're fat, PETA doesn't want your support [Aug. 19th, 2009|09:59 am]

Via Boing Boing, Why is PETA Making Fun of Fat Women?.

Follow the link and look at the pic.

Yea, seriously.

My commentary on this is that I have been vegetarian for over 15 years now. And my BMI is currently borderline 'obese'. And only borderline because I've lost some weight.

Now, I don't have a meat-eating twin to compare to. Possibly I'm healthier as a vegetarian than I would be otherwise. I rather doubt I'd weigh any more as a meat-eater. Quite possibly less, because I've spent years living on pasta, rice, and potatoes.

I'm currently iron-deficiently anemic. And that is directly due to being vegetarian.

My triglycerides are high, which is possibly genetic, but also due to all those carbs.

I'm not saying that a _good_ vegetarian diet isn't all-around healthier, better for the environment, and nicer on the animals. But I am saying that there are fat vegetarians out there. A whole lot of us, in fact.

So why do you want to go annoy and anger people who are actually ON YOUR SIDE?
