Fox of Fire

Hi. Just a blog. With a lot of fandom posts, particularly Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Avengers, Supernatural, and anything else that looks cool. And some other random shit.
Thanks for stopping by!

Amazingly, lots of people still believe that they are ”omnivores”, despite the fact that there are no scientific facts to support these claims, and this wrong classification is based on ”dietary habits” or ”observations” that humans generally eat a wide variety of plant and animal foods, not on anatomical design. Truth is, humans have nothing in common with true meat eaters.

”True carnivores (and omnivores) salivate about the idea of eating whole prey animals when they see them. Humans do not. We’re interested in eating the body parts only because they’ve been removed from the original animal and processed, and because we grew up eating them, making it seem perfectly normal. It’s amazing how much of a disconnect we’ve been able to learn about the difference between animals and food. As GoVeg puts it:

While carnivores take pleasure in killing animals and eating their raw flesh, any human who killed an animal with his or her bare hands and dug into the raw corpse would be considered deranged. Carnivorous animals are aroused by the scent of blood and the thrill of the chase. Most humans, on the other hand, are revolted by the sight of raw flesh and cannot tolerate hearing the screams of animals being ripped apart and killed. The bloody reality of eating animals is innately repulsive to us, more proof that we were not designed to eat meat.

Ask yourself: When you see dead animals on the side of the road, are you tempted to stop for a snack? Does the sight of a dead bird make you salivate? Do you daydream about killing cows with your bare hands and eating them raw? If you answered “no” to all of these questions, congratulations—you’re a normal human herbivore—like it or not. Humans were simply not designed to eat meat. Humans lack both the physical characteristics of carnivores and the instinct that drives them to kill animals and devour their raw carcasses.

Ok, for one?

Of fucking course we don’t share anything in common with “true meat eaters”. Are you blind? It’s because we’re not meat eaters. We’re fucking OMNIVORES.

Herbivores =/= Omnivores =/= Carnivores.

Each fucking subset has evolved differently from the rest and has evolutionary sets that fit their diet and their diet specifically. So while we don’t resemble “true meat eaters” because we were never Carnivores in the first place, we also don’t resemble “true Herbivores” either because we evolved past that. Want to know what we DO resemble though? OTHER FUCKING OMNIVORES.

Second: Actually, humans never ate raw meat in the first place and anyone who says so is a fucking idiot because archaeology has already disproven this. And if we did, it was for a VERY short period and not long enough to fuck with our evolution.

Fun fucking fact: The introduction of meat to our diet directly corresponds anthropologically with THE INVENTION OF COOKING AND ADDITION OF IT TO OUR LIFESTYLE. Therefore while we evolved to be Omnivores and eat meat as a small part of our diet, we never evolved to eat RAW meat.

Third? Jesus fucking Christ. We are not evolutionarily equipped to go out and catch prey with our bare hands.

Why? Because, again, WE DID NOT EVOLVE TO DO THAT.

So instead of needing to evolve the capability to run at fast speeds, long claws capable of rending flesh, and have a mouth full of 20 something sharp as fuck teeth? We developed tools. We developed cooking. We developed group hunting techniques. And since we’re still. Fucking. Here today instead of dying out like evolutionary failures are prone to doing? I’d say its worked out for us in the end pretty fucking well in the end so far.

We have a much higher brain capacity. We don’t NEED to and never did because we are more intelligent, have opposable thumbs and were capable of developing things to aid us before these things were evolutionarily required of us. We were, literally, never meant to or were in an evolutionary position that required us to catch our living prey like Carnivores did.

HUMANS HAVE BASICALLY BEEN ONE LONG STRAIN OF “FUCK EVOLUTION”.

Lastly I just want to touch on this ridiculous thing someone wrote on this post at some point: Obv. I never said they didn’t. They even evolved to consume milk, well most have. But that doesn’t mean it was physically intended for our bodies originally. That’s the point of this whole post. Not what we’ve “evolved” to do but what our bodies and minds are hard wired for FROM THE VERY BEGINNING TO NOW. And it’s mostly about the mental state it would take that 90% of people don’t have”.

Like… Are you kidding? Please tell me you are fucking kidding. Do you know how evolution works in terms of diet? Food source becomes scarce while another becomes plentiful, species adapts to eat said food source… Or it dies. What we were not originally designer to eat CHANGES as new food sources evolve, and as we are required to adapt and evolve. The more food you adapt and evolve to eat, the more likely your species is to continue surviving as food sources come in and out of availability.

Literally. Diet depends on fucking evolution and evolution is widely dependent on diet in some circumstances. You cannot fucking remove them and separate them and pretend one isn’t necessary to have this fucking discussion. You cannot take a fucking issue about diet, claim we’re something we’re not, and completely erase the evolutionary portion of the fucking argument because IT IS A REQUIRED PORTION.

YOU ARE LITERALLY ATTEMPTING TO ERASE CONTEXT FROM A SITUATION THAT 100% REQUIRES. THE FUCKING. CONTEXT. OF EVOLUTION.

DO YOU FUCKERS EVEN KNOW HOW TO FUCKING SCIENCE?!

Yes, there very much is plenty of scientific evidence that Omnivore is a classification of diet. So is Fruitivore, Insectivore, Carnivore, Herbavore, and several other classifications.

The Omnivore dietary classification is seriously defined as an animal whose diet and lifestyle relies on obtaining protein and energy from both plant and animal sources- which may also include animal byproducts such as eggs and dairy, or things like insects, fungi and algae.

New flash: Humans are not the only fucking Omnivores and the classification is not based solely on the dietary needs of HUMANS, but the observation of SEVERAL OTHER ANIMALS.

  • Corvids are Omnivores.
  • Bears (save for a few species) are Omnivores.
  • Pigs are fucking Omnivores.
  • Badgers are Omnivores.
  • Foxes (some species) are Omnivores.
  • Chickens are fucking Omnivoers.

Here’s a nice fucking worksheet for youand another one, and oh LOOK ANOTHER ONE.

Your science is fucking bunk.

Get the fuck out.

I totally thought this post was about how silly “raw diets” are. Then I was pissed off at the anti-meat bullshit. But then the reply to that crap… the science… the facts… it’s so beautiful.

Also, just because animals are too stupid to cook and season their food does not mean they are better than us.

If lions could grill and slather a wildebeest in A1 sauce you know they would fucking do it.

So by OP logic if you dont get a boner looking at wild plants and bugs that means you aren’t a vegan or vegetarian

and in that moment, the entire movie theater burst into tears

i think this was the moment that made most of us despise umbridge more than voldemort

most of us?! don’t you mean ALL of us?? I don’t think even Voldemort liked this bitch!

No one likes Umbridge.

I heard, one time, a dementor kissed her and IT died

Voldemort committed genocide, but Umbridge dared to be female while she abused her power. 

The point isn’t that Umbridge was worse than Voldemort; it’s that everyone hates her more. And I think it has nothing to do with her being a woman and everything with being the sort of cruel most of us have actually experienced.

I mean, look at Voldemort. He’s basically Wizard Hitler, which is, obviously, an incredibly terrible thing to be. But most people—especially the younger people in Harry Potter’s target audience—have not had their parents murdered by a xenophobic cult leader. Nor have they fought for their lives against giant snakes, been kidnapped for dark rituals, or watched numerous friends die in front of them. Voldemort’s crimes are numerous, but they’re distant and fantastical, like hearing about a serial killer on the news.

But they have had that one teacher who inflicts extra punishments just because they don’t like you. They’ve complained to parents and authorities only to be ignored. They’ve sat through pointless classes and been silenced when they criticize. Umbridge is that teacher we all hated because she made our lives miserable and we were powerless to stop her. And as we grow out of school, there are still people in positions of power who act like her. The manager who denies your schedule requests and penalizes you for invented infractions. That customer who complains to corporate because their scam didn’t work, and the corporate decision to listen to their story. Cops performing illegal searches because they know you don’t have any proof.

Yes, torturing and killing numerous people is worse than terrorizing a handful of schoolchildren, but Voldemort is the bad guy in a fairy tale. Umbridge is personal.

*drops the mic*

Voldemort is the villain we never hope to face.

Umbridge is the villain we face every day.

Imagine having braces during the apocalypse. no one can take your braces off. And you just have to accept that you’ll have braces forever.

Bitch. I’ll get these fuckers off if I have to travel to the west until I hit the ocean and then write the bible to do it.
