Today at the till at the supermarket, they suggested i pick a new bell pepper and they would throw this one away for me, because it had a little bruise. I don’t see why it shouldn’t be eatable and insisted on purchasing it.
It’s difficult to comprehend in what kind of society we live, where food isn’t valued, if it doesn’t look like a piece of plastic with no flaws out of a advertising leaflet. And if you dumpster dive for it, you are committing a crime, because in Germoney it’s thievery to acquire food out of the supermarkets dumpster.
Anyways, i’m going to chop this fine bell paprika up and add it to my vegan soy-garlic-sauce for my oven potatoes.
Reject the notion that you have to “contribute” to a capitalist society in order to deserve food, water, and shelter.
A human being’s worthiness of basic necessities should not be determined by their capacity to produce profit for corporations.

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”
While i lived in Flensburg at the very north of Germany, i brought a second hand bike and often took it for a ride to the harbor. But once or twice i pushed myself to expand the tour and ended up at the border of Denmark. Such achievement made my heart grow a little fond and i miss living in Flensburg and riding my bike beyond the city.
