Chelsea Peretti is a dumb ass »
My thoughtful coworkers alerted me to a recent meme going around (as memes are wont to do):
First of all, BINGO. Second of all, before we really get into it, can this douchebag update her wardrobe? The ’90s were a great time but join us in the new millennium. I’m sorry, I know that’s unrelated but it’s so glaring and offensive to my eyes. See what I mean?
For fuck’s sake, turn off the Friends reruns and go to a mall. [Ed.: To be fair, she’s rocking a perfect 1990 Courtney Thorne Smith circa Melrose Place. —Laura]
To continue, let’s see, how many times do we have to go over this? Being vegan and caring about human rights are not mutually exclusive. That is not motherfucking logic. Moreover, let’s get it straight: This person does not care where her vegetables come from. No one who ever makes this argument actually does. They do not give a single fuck about immigrants, they are just defensive and out of reasonable arguments. People who actually care about labor rights 1. are out doing shit about it, and 2. know that the meat and dairy industry are the worst offenders on the planet when it comes to exploiting immigrant labor. Ask Human Rights Watch; Read “Blood, Sweat and Fear” and then come at me.
What about environmental politics? The meat and dairy industry are atrocious violators of the planet. And if you know the slightest bit about how environmental politics work out, poor countries, low-income communities and people of color are the people who get shafted when it comes to dealing with pollution and waste. It’s disproportionate as fuck. Open your goddamn eyes and connect the dots. If you actually care about people and justice, you would care about the environment. And if you actually care about the environment, you would be vegan because it is the number one thing an individual can do to make a difference for the planet. What is so hard to understand about this? Fucking idiots.
Look, moron, take intro to logic—it’s fun and sometimes you get to draw pictures. Plus, it might help you develop good jokes instead of pandering to mindless fucks. Good day, sir.
