[image-1]In fact, it gave me reason to hold my ground, listen to my rage, and ravage the Jamaican jerk chicken that certain liberals of America seem to believe is an abrasive act against nature.
Remember fanny packs? Remember headbands? Remember the Oregon Trail? Remember the word, badass? Amanda Szeglowski, Elle Chyun and Jeso ONeill do; and theyre bringing badass back. When their powers combine (reference to 90s cartoon Captain Planet) these girls from the N.Y form the group, cakeface.
Im sure all of you have heard or have partaken in a conversation similar to that. Being a vegan or vegetarian has changed from being a dietary choice to a political statement, raves "Beef and Broccoli" lyrics of Immoral Technique through the theater's speakers.
Furthermore, becoming a veggie has become a trend. It has become what makes one cool or badass. When and why has it become a social trend to eat nothing but carrots and broccoli? Does becoming a veggie separate you from the gluttony that is this American life? Is keeping oneself away from the sautéed, spiced and marinated smell, taste and nutrition of steak, ribs, lamb, bacon, chicken or a breast of veal keep one from being the picturesque superficial and materialistic American that France and other nations have grown to hate?
Some of you are actually anorexic and cover it up by saying, Ive decided to live a healthier eating-style, and losing weight is just a natural side effect. Fuck that. Additionally, some of you believe you must be a veggie to be liberal. Fuck that. Some of you liberal thinkers, believers and eaters are actually the most ethnocentric people Ive ever met. I doubt people in the slums of Africa, Panama or Bulgaria should be nor want to be veggies. How dare you preach and liberally force the ideology of your opinion that being an herbivore is simply healthier/better for everyone. Fuck you. I doubt Dwayne The Rock Johnson, is supposed to be an herbivore. Veggies, do realize, that some of your fellow Americans, are from a culture who hunts, skins, cleans, cooks and eats various types of animals. They did it before animals needed rights, Mad Cow disease and Swine Flu, and theyll continue to do it after. Being raised in the South, I could easily say, Its un-American to refrain from eating meat. But, I dont, because you being a veggie means more deer jerky, goat curry and pork dumplings for me.
vice. (with mary kate) by cakeface leaves one pondering, does eating apples and corn make you feel badass? And if not, then, FUCK VEGANS. More importantly, do whatever it is that does make you feel badass. You hippie-nouveas, those who vogue in your bedroom mirror and those who still bust out the robot at the club, badass is you.
