How Women and Their Status Shoes Suck

I find women’s shoes, women’s magazines, women’s talk shows—women’s stuff in general—intolerable. But women’s status shoes hold an especially lowly and cringey place in my heart.

The whole stripper bit…

We all know about the strutting female “peacock” thing, how instead of merely walking, the woman in freaky high heels or platforms is parading, on the stroll for a “good time,” all that goofy nonsense. Arched back, slightly bent knees, butt beckoning, the I’m-so-sexy-it-hurts gait, haughty face, all that. She’s showing how proudly female she is, a tough girl who can not only wear those crazy shoes but enjoy it, be highly skilled at it, even dance sinuously, wildly. Ain’t she somethin’?

The female who can not only walk or even trot in outlandishly uncomfortable and painful shoes is considered the absolute finest in female-dom. The pride one feels at accomplishing agility while the feet are arched outrageously and one is walking on one’s severely pinched toes…well, what a heady accomplishment that is for a girl! Could a man ask for anything more statusy? She’s hot stuff, make no mistake, a wild thing in bed. A Queen Bee. Gals don’t get no better than that! A real catch for some wealthy, cool, good-looking man with a “nice” car.

No old lady shoes!

Sensible, comfortable shoes suck, say those high-status gals who also don $1000 handbags. Unless shoes are for working out in at the gym or running the streets in preparation for donning those spiky stilettos come display time, a girl’s shoes need to be showy and tall. Even very big girls wear spiky 6-inch heels, that’s just how important that stiletto is, to show off one’s serious intent to be sexy.

Sensible dress or casual shoes are for OLD LADIES, and no one wants to be an old lady! Ew, gross. Even old ladies wear the tall shoes to prove they still got it. Having IT is what life’s all about. If you don’t got IT, just KYS, old unsexy hag!

So, Oprah and company (The Real and The View crews, etc.), keep on wearing those $3000 red-bottomed spikes, you empowered sexy gals know what life’s all about. You’ve taken life by the balls and owned it! You highly admirable fashionistas, you! I’m in awe. Of your foolishness.

It’s been a long time since I was dopey enough to wear any of that ridiculous footwear women so proudly suffer. No, no thanks, I’ll stick with comfortable, sensible, sturdy, supportive shoes so I can run and climb and kick butt, etc., while staying fight-ready throughout. Yeah, I’m an old lady and proud of surviving my not-so-easy life. No young doofus will ever make me ashamed of whatever age I am.

I’m ready for flight!

About the most unsensible shoes you’ll catch me in are flip flops in the summertime or for around the house (and slippers). But comfy ones with nonslip bottoms. See, I’m ready for WW3 and nukes, earthquakes, a terrorist attack, running off and hiding in the woods while being rounded up for a FEMA camp for refusing vaccines—all the myriad of wonderful possible events of today.

So, teeter about trying to look sexy while breaking your ankles and foot bones in the event of a tornado, a tsunami or whatever and I’ll be there—cringing and shaking my head, old-lady style—to grab your arm, rip those bizarre, crippling things off your feet and toss them into a ditch or something and get some sense into you and some comfortable sturdy (and of course VEGAN) shoes on those gnarly feet of yours, you nincompoop female.

Why we should eat non-GMO 100% organic corn and soy

 [See UPDATE at bottom]

Corn and Soy…

…are the most genetically modified crops out there, due to their being used in vast quantities by animal farmers and their wanting the stuff cheap and easy to grow, regardless of the health consequences. So those two crops, when not grown organically, are heavily modified.

Tofu, Eggplant & Rice Dish

Monsanto’s glyphosate is the chemical at issue here…it’s also known as Roundup®, which is the most used herbicide in the USA and is being used increasingly around the world. “Roundup-ready” genetically engineered crops are grown from seeds engineered to contain a gene from “Agrobacteria.” That genetic modification makes the food crops resistant to glyphosate, meaning that only unwanted foliage cannot survive, serving to keep the food crops pure and most profitable. Users of Roundup-ready seeds are required to treat their crops with Roundup®. Corn and soy are the primary Roundup-ready crops, since, again, they’re the mainstays in the diets of “food animals.”

Of course, the manufacturer of glyphosate says it is beneficial and relatively harmless, so if you’d like to see that side, simply Google “Monsanto’s statement about glyphosate.”

Canola oil is another item which is heavily modified using Roundup® on the rapeseed crops, so it’s also wise to avoid anything but 100% organic non-GMO canola oil, if you use that oil at all.

What’s wrong with glyphosate?

[See UPDATE at bottom]

Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide which is said by some scientists to disrupt the way the body manages sulfur. Autism, for example, is associated with poor sulfur metabolism. Glyphosate also supposedly causes aluminum to be more toxic in the body, which is a great health concern due to the aluminum in vaccines.

Pathogens

Glyphosate is said by some to kill beneficial bacteria in the gut which allows pathogens (disease-causing bacteria) like C. difficile to overgrow which leads to “leaky gut syndrome” and indirectly promotes aluminum uptake by cells. All this can lead to kidney failure which leads to aluminum retention in tissues (including the brain) which can lead to dementia, a.k.a. Alzheimer’s disease.

Some scientists also claim that glyphosate disrupts the “shikimate pathway” in our guts and depletes our tryptophan, which is the precursor to melatonin. Melatonin transports sulfate into the brain and reduces heavy metal toxicity in the body. Good stores of melatonin are said to bind to toxic metals like aluminum, lead, etc., and reduce their toxic effects in the body. But unfortunately, those scientists (Samsel and Seneff) get much of their data from animal studies. But if the above is true for humans, our being low in melatonin can bring on a lot of damage.

Vegan foods (preferably organic) high in Tryptophan are: Nuts, Seeds, Tofu & Soy, Oats, Beans, Lentils

Foods (preferably organic) high in Melatonin are: Pineapples, Bananas, Oranges, Oats, Sweet Corn, Rice, Tomatoes, Barley 

So, especially for anything containing corn, soy products or canola oil, just be sure it’s labeled 100% organic and non-GMO and you should avoid any problems related to glyphosate. If corn, soy or canola oil are listed in ingredients without the terms “organic” and “non-GMO,” simply avoid that product to help protect your health.

It makes one wonder how the animals and the animal products most people consume are affected by this herbicide. Surely some of the common illnesses farm animals suffer are due to glyphosate in all that corn and soy, among many other unhealthy practices. It’s likely that the meat, milk and eggs that come from these intensive farms has harmful effects, in concentrated form, for people who consume them. Sorry for the following image, but this is the reality…

UPDATE: Current related article concerning suspicions of people developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (a form of cancer) as a result of exposure to glyphosate, despite the findings from animal studies which concluded that the herbicide would not cause cancer in humans: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/14/business/monsanto-roundup-safety-lawsuit.html Another case where animal testing is shown to be unscientific and dangerous, aside from the sadistic cruelty perpetrated by “human” beings against the innocent and helpless.

Making Lemons into Lemonade – On President Trump


President Trump in January 2017 – OMG!

donald_trump_phoenix_2016Check out the two older articles linked below, they’re especially relevant to vegans and animal activists on this day; lots of food for thought in them. I like Thinking Vegan a lot more than full-blown socialist Roland Vincent, but both of them explain how Trump could possibly be good for animal rights and veganism regardless of his assholery on the issue or left-versus-right politics:

I especially feared Hillary in power because she would have forced vaccines (through appointing her CDC director) on us all as a lover of policymaking and enforcement and a strong proponent of vaccines, while the anti-vax people say Trump is suspicious of vaccines and not at all likely to have them made compulsory by appointing a vaccine nazi as CDC director.

Whether you favor or oppose vaccines, no one should support forcing others to submit to them, which is where the vaccine movement is headed and has been for some time.

Sadly though, Trump is no friend of animals or vegans, but, believe me, neither are the Clinton, Obama or Sanders crowds, even if they talk a good game at times.

Also see the two videos and the 10/2015 Savage-Trump discussion linked below.

Outspoken radio talk host, Michael Savage, trained in medicine, is a possible choice for Trump’s Director of the NIH (or possibly the CDC instead?), and this would most likely be very good for the anti-vivisection movement, especially for those poor animals stuck in those cages. Listen to him here especially around 4:50 to 5:55:

The NIH directs all funding to research institutions! So keep a watch and hope for Dr. Savage to get this appointment, as it has been suggested by some.

Savage also opposes vaccines and would likely never support compulsory vaccines as shown here:

Savage is not a friend of animal activists though; he often rages against us too, says he hates animal cruelty but can’t stand us either…so keep that in mind. But what he says and what he’ll actually do and its effect on animals is what we have to keep in mind, not our touchiness about being condemned as activists.
