Funnily enough, I’m actually writing this post in the car (I’m not driving) and I’m writing it simply because this journey has made me realise just how many things I hate about the world that I want to change. So here’s a few..
1. The Consumption Of Meat
I’ve been vegetarian for almost 3 years now and, whilst controversial, I just can’t stand the thought of all the sheep and cows and chickens and every other animal people so easily consume being killed. Fair enough, in the cave men days, we needed to eat meat and hunt animals, I completely understand that. But now, we have so so so many alternatives that a meat free diet is possible, and even easy! There’s nothing that breaks my heart more than seeing the animals in crates on lorries on their way to the slaughter house, I just wanna set them all free!
I’m a feminist, I will happily say that. And no, that doesn’t mean that I think girls and women are better than boys and men or anything else, I simply believe the genders should be equal in every community, country and culture. They should get the same chances of education, same pay, same options and same quality of life, also let’s stop branding feminists as men haters please.
In this section, I’d also like to include forced marriages. Some young women as young as 10 get forced into marriage every single day, where they will have likely to have been pregnant and miscarried by the age of 12 simply because their tiny bodies aren’t ready yet, I can’t believe this is still a problem in this century but there’s so many charities and organisations aiming to help this, I’m gonna leave some links at the bottom!
Big factor for me, and very current. Racism is just disgusting, there’s no other way to put it, and it should just stop immediately.
4. Violence/War/The Killing Of Innocent People/ Terrorism
Also very current, this is possibly one of the most debated about issues of the last few years. The fact is, this world is becoming so scary because so many humans seem to have lost their humanity, and it terrifies me so much.
I thought long and hard about what to call this section but poverty just about covers it. I want to end hunger and dehydration, I want equal opportunities for all children no matter where they were born or who to, and I want people to help each other out a bit more. It’s so easy to forget that there are people starving to death every day in other countries when we say we are ‘starving’ (because we haven’t eaten in a few hours). This just needs solving, please.
A bit more serious and controversial than I usually opt for, but these are the things I would change about the world if I could. Thanks for reading,
