THIS IS A CALLOUT POST: ERIC J EPPERSON (OMAHA, NE)

The above cosplayer frequents the following cons: Nebraskon (Nebraska) and NakaKon (Kansas). The above photos were taken from Nebraskon 2012 and MetroCon 2013 respectively.

He sexually harasses and misgenders predominantly high-school-age assigned-female-at-birth cosplayers, and so far is responsible for at least one abusive relationship involving rape and another rape.

His tumblr url was sassybiepperson for a very long time, but he deactivated after being kicked out of the Nebraska Midwest Homestucks for sexually assaulting various members.

He is rumored to be appearing in a cosplay from Kill La Kill or Homestuck at Nebraskon 2014.

More details on his offenses can be found here.

Please spread the word and keep your loved ones away from this man.

PLEASE KEEP SPREADING THE WORD! This man is a chronic abusive personality and it is important that he not have any more victims than he’s already had!

word. eric epperson was one of my best friends for nearly a year and i suffered horrendous things while in this friendship w/ him, i even suffered my own share of assault. eric is the one responsible for the sexual assault (on more than one occasion) of myself, one actually happening on the night before my birthday. please keep spreading this around do not become his friend do not suffer the fate we have suffered. 

Holy shit I was re-reading our texts and that specific night he was just complaining to me about how much of a boring friend you were for wanting to just do friendly things like play video games. He also said that to me about marshallstackerpentecost while he was assaulting them and about sassyganglish at the infamous Promstuck he attended with him. If that was his code for “this person isn’t consenting to the things I want to do with them”, we may have even more cases about Eric than I initially thought.

Thank you so much for coming out, Marc! Keep spreading the word, and please keep sending me your stories on this vile worm! The more reports we have on his integrity (rather, lack thereof) the more likely nebkon will be made a safer place!

so okay this is the guy who sexually assaulted me
if you are in the midwest and plan to attend nebraskon or know people who do, please reblog this. Make his face known. Make sure he can never hurt someone again

I didn’t know there were twenty thousand vegans on tumblr!!!

You can be against animal cruelty and not be a vegan

You can be against animal cruelty and not be a vegan

Also given the fact some vegans wilfully neglect their pet’s diet for personal belief reasons you can in fact be a vegan and be ok with animal cruelty when its convenient for you.

^^^^ Reblogging especially for that last comment.

Coca-Cola is bleeding Indian towns dry — and now the farmers are fighting back

They’ve launched a successful mission to Mars, but India’s government still has a lot of work to do on a major domestic concern: managing the country’s dwindling groundwater resources. And there’ one clear party to blame.

In the state of Uttar Pradesh, in northern Indian, farmers are decidedly unhappy with the neighboring Coca-Cola plant that’s been rapidly depleting the decade-old area wells. It’s been happening for years, but the impact on local resources is finally coming to a tipping point, and the farmers living in remote villages have decided to take action against the corporate giant.

As a black person this makes me really proud but at the same time it really frustrates me because the news never focus on the positive qualities of blacks which in reality actually out weighs the negatives but the media only focus on the negatives.. why does a 4 year old black boy cussing makes huge media headlines but a 4 year black girl genius does not……that’s what really frustrates me.

Many people know that women make 77 cents to the dollar compared to men. But did you know that African-American women make just 64 cents to the dollar, and Hispanic women make just 56 cents? One group offers an interesting way to fix this. 

This has no sources! The only thing the link even says is the same thing that we’ve heard from feminists. The link only said that Obama has talked about the pay gap and claims that the differences in over all earnings for a yearly income are due to sexism. Without a shred of evidence! 

And over 4,000 people believe this. 

The source is “NWLC analysis of Census Bureau Current Population Survey (CPS) 2014 Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC).” I can only surmise they once again simply aggregated the annual income reported for people of each class to come up with this, which means that no controls were applied at all. Grossly dishonest statistics.

What really interests me, though, is that they are claiming the 77¢ figure applies only to white women. I was under the impression that was the statistic they favored for women generally. How then does disaggregating black and Hispanic women from it leave the number at 77¢, given that black and Hispanic women are making strikingly less than white women and pulling down the average?

I am getting an unusually strong whiff of bullshit from this.

I want to know why George Washington is still earning an income. I thought he retires a long time ago. Damn those retirement and health care plans for former politicians!

This is such BS, and this is so laughable. None of my Hispanic relatives in America are getting paid almost 46 cents less per every dollar, and I’m talking about people that used to be dirt poor but got a good jib anyways that pays a comfortable salary.

This isn’t the 1900’s anymore.

raw-fed-pets:

All dogs share the same basic digestive system despite the range of physical variations (and attitudes) across different breeds. Every dog is designed to eat a raw animal-based diet, from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane. Breed-specific dog food brands are simply a marketing gimmick aimed at playing on the pet owner’s emotions, and their desire to feed their pet the best possible diet.

I don’t think that dogs need an animal-based diet. If done right they can be vegan and not contribute to the murdering of innocent animals. We’ve adapted and domesticated them enough to do so. They’ve evolved to live without meat just like us.

200% incorrect. Vegan diets are carbohydrate-based. Carbohydrates are inflammatory, feed cancer (glucose), contribute to periodontal disease (leading to systemic organ failure, eg heart), cause insulin spikes leading to a multitude of other issues in the long-term (thyroid, liver, diabetes, heart disease) and also cause pancreatic problems due to extreme stress on the pancreas (secreting heavy loads of carb enzymes over a long period of time). The low moisture content coupled with high plant protein may also cause renal failure in the long term. The preservatives used may also be linked to cancer (BHA, BHT etc), and these diets also skew the omega3/6 ratio, causing further inflammation (linked to cancer again). They cause urine alkalinity leading to urinary problems such as crystals, blockages and UTI’s.

Brief into to dog anatomy/physiology:

- Stomach PH: Their highly acidic stomach is designed for eliminating harmful bacteria and breaking down bone into a gel-like substance. Humans have a much more alkaline stomach acid which is why we would struggle to digest raw bone.

-Digestive Enzymes: Higher level of proteases to break down animal protein. High bile load to help push through bacteria.

-Dental Anatomy: Sharp pointed teeth designed for ripping and tearing flesh and bones.Dogs do not chew their food as we do, they are wired to swallow chunks quickly as a basic survival instinct.

-Jaws: Dogs also have strong jaws that physically cannot move sideways (like your own can). This sideways grinding action is a feature that allows pre-digestion of plant material. Again, dogs rip off chunks and swallow them whole.

-Lack of Salivary Amylase: Omnivores have this for pre-digestion of carbohydrates. Dogs and cats do not. The canine pancreas secretes amylase as a backup, however this does not mean they should be fed a high carbohydrate diet every day for a lifetime. Processed food (incl vegan) is 40-70% carbohydrate.

-Lysozyme: Instead of amylase, dogs have lysozyme in their saliva which is an antibacterial. This may be useful for destroying any harmful bacteria in carrion/rotten food/feces, as well as wound cleaning.

-Gut length: The canine gut is short in length which is because flesh must be pushed through quickly. It does not need to sit and ferment, as this could allow bacteria to multiply to harmful levels. Note that plant eating animals have a long digestive tract and even multiple stomach chambers in order for plant material to be slowly broken down by the necessary enzymes.

-Nutrient profiles. Dogs have 0% biological requirement for carbohydrates. They gain every single essential nutrient from a prey based diet such as Whole Prey/Prey Model. Vegan diets are full of processed lab-made vitamins and minerals. Many vitamin pre-mixes are made in china and shipped to the country of manufacture.

All in all, dogs will survive on a high carbohydrate diet but it will cause systemic effects eventually. Similar to smoking, a junk food diet affects every dog differently and some may be affected more severely than others, and in different time spans. You can also expect high vet fees in the form of dental cleanings, dental surgeries and various health problem later on in life.

It is not recommended that you feed your pet the equivalent of a big mac for the entirety of its life. This is essentially what kibble and vegan diets are. Evolution has changed the appearance and even the behaviour of your dog, but their digestive system is still geared towards meat. Basically, you are paying money to have a company slowly kill your pet from the inside out.

0/10, Not Recommended.

Hard science here for anyone who needs to shut down a “vegan pet owner.” It’s abuse. Feed your animal the substances they evolved to eat or do not own an animal, it’s as simple as that.
