arlennedlr:

The xoloitzcuintli, or Mexican hairless dog, is very native to the prehispanic México. Xolos depictions can be found in Aztec, Colima and Toltec arts. Xoloitzcuintli comes from Xolotl (Aztec god, twin of Quetzalcóatl, and known as the “obscure” Venus) and the Nahuatl word itzcuintli for dog.
Many people unfamiliar with this breed— especially in the U.S. —have mistaken it for the mythical Chupacabra.

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey

———————

a new zine called shitty horoscopes that i’ll be premiering this year at the Toronto Queer Zine Fair, among other things! hopefully i’ll make volumes available for online purchase soon. credit where credit is due: this was inspired by the huge number of made-up horoscopes floating around tumblr lately, and angry-poems.

yup, the Libra one is pretty accurate

I don’t give a rat’s ass about astrology or put any faith in it, but I really, really like these. Apart from the rocking illustrations, I love short, surreal, sort of fatalistic poetry (see WTNV twitter and Sexts from the Void) so.

Virgo one is p spot on
