無知即力量

終於聽左 Astrophel Lim 推介嘅齋老味podcast,請左兩個女權撚(自認)講free yoga pants運動。 佢地個主張大概就係,不想著yoga pants 被人評頭品足,尤其網絡很多人講得很mean。要求大眾尊重女性選擇衣著的自由及權利。要求打破定形,例如著xx就是雞 / 著xx就是yyy。尊重女性,反對被拍攝上網公審,反對向女性投以不尊重目光。本身我對yoga pants無特別喜好或厭惡,除非真係好明顯突晒自己性器官形狀出黎有點失禮之外(例如男版緊身褲,成條J好似國傷g柱咁一條浮雕就唔多好) 雖然我對瑜珈褲無特別感覺,推上一級,假如基於某些理由,某甲女穿著三點式,或者某乙男穿speedo三角泳褲於鬧市行走,又有無問題? 覺得有問題的,是因為這些衣著不符合某些約定俗成的社會規範。你說,fuck 社會規範,這些都是過時,西方社會有bra top 熱褲出街的女生。社會規範從來不是潮流,是沉澱一段長時間大眾對某件事的睇法,你話衣著打扮毋須被框框限死,fine,下次去京都著和服試試右搭左,當地人才不會跟你break the status quo,右搭左就是壽衣,是死人的著法。

Both Christ and Buddha Have Compassion for All Sentient Beings. Go Vegan! By Chapman Chen

Both Christianity and Buddhism are vegetarian/vegan faiths. Jehovah suffers in all suffering creatures; Buddha has great compassion for all as one. Both the Holy Bible and Buddhist sutras emphasize empathy with all sentient beings, including animals, forbid the killing of any of them, and condemn meat-eating. Both Jesus and former incarnations of Buddha died for rescuing animals.

Which One Offered a Vegan Sacrifice? Cain or Abel? By Chapman Chen,

Summary: According to Genesis 4, God rejected Cain’s pure, bloodless, vegan oblation but accepted Abel’s violent, gory, animal sacrifice. This alleged act on the part of God goes against the essential Christian notion of “God is love”. Moreover, throughout the Bible, God time and again condemns animal sacrifice (e.g. Isaiah 1:12, Isaiah 22:12-14, Isaiah 66:2-3, Jeremiah 6:20, Psalm 50:7-14, Ezekiel 34:1-10, Hosea 6:6, 8:11-13, Micah 6:6-8, Matthew 9:13). And in Hebrews 11:4, Abel righteously presented to God “gifts,” the plural form of which implies that it was various fruits of the ground rather than one kind of gift — the fat portions of the firstborn.

仲有千千萬萬個家明

以前八卦雜誌黃金年代,一張鬆郁蒙夜照就可以寫一篇「失控、狂摷、谷上腦」等等嘅看圖作文。當年唔明無養份又老作嘅東西,為何咁多人俾錢成行成市,香港人應該捨而後快才對。 有前輩教落,八卦雜誌滿足人性好多需要:偷窺慾、仇富、道德批判,為苦悶嘅日常提供發洩口,是否真確不重要,歪風敗壞更加是重點,娛樂圈敗壞,才顯得小市民克己而優越。後來紙媒衰落、娛樂圈淍零無事可寫,八卦雜誌終於式微。但係八卦雜誌背後嘅需求從未消失,取而代之就係今日嘅家明金水之流(仲有一大堆,懶引戰,從略) 同樣,此等KOL滿足求知慾,佢地係content farm轉載各種新鮮事,亦包括跟港人社會有關嘅消息,政治人物取代藝人成為消費對像,近期拉晒坐監,所以家明先至會轉返去消費193。 同時,KOL為讀者提供簡便黑白對錯指標,我呢個圈是對的,其他人是熱狗、左膠、YC、本土派、五毛 etc,好多唔夠時間跟政治新聞嘅人,最簡單二分法就是「佢藍定黃?」今日世途險惡,唔想endorse錯人,唔想俾錯嘅人賺錢,最短捷嘅方法就係問藍定黃,唔識分就唯有靠KOL。 以前八卦雜誌滿足師奶們批判道德嘅需要,現在係KOL替自己個圈子伸張正義。咁KOL都係得把口,當然唔係同你變革香港啦!自然揀就手安全嘅位去鬧,例如有d人成日笑呢個契弟果個無腦YC,有人成日鬧左膠,有人話xx一句KO建制派家明鬧193「明星唔係咁做」,正正係perform緊呢個服務,只係抽錯火水咁解。以前八卦雜誌都要俾幾十蚊買,現在fb唔駛錢,想juicy些少就科水去Patreon,所以家明不會倒,因為佢係販賣緊符合人性需求嘅產品服務:求知、偷窺、判辨危機及善惡、懲惡彰義。 恐龍從來未絕種,只是變成雀鳥。八卦雜誌沒消亡,只是變成KOL及paywall。又想講香港人無得救?八卦雜誌係香港獨有嗎?諗清楚?

Does “Dominion” over Animals in Genesis Mean Stewardship or Despotism! Go Vegan! By Chapman Chen, HKBNews

“Dominion” in Genesis 1:28 KJV means not domination or despotism but “stewardship” (Linzey 2016) and “protection” (Halteman 2007), because 1. In Gen. 1:29, humans were given a vegan diet; 2. In Gen. 2:15 NIV, humans were instructed by God to “take care of” the Garden with all the animals in it; 3. God made His covenant with not only humans (Noah and his descendants) but also animals (Gen. 9:8-17); 4. God has compassion for all creatures (Psalm 145: 9). 5. Animals are our folk (Gen. 1:30). 6. Christ always sided with the marginalized (Matthew 25:40 NIV); 7. Jesus died at least partly for animal liberation. (Mark 11:18); 8. Via Jesus’s crucifixion and resurrection, God reconciled himself to all groaning creatures and offered them hope of redemption (Colossians 1:19-20).

Jesus Asks us to Serve the Animals. Go Vegan! By Chapman Chen

Jesus said he came “not” “to be served, but to serve” (Matthew 20:28 NIV), and he told us to be “servant of all” (Mark 9:35 NIV). No wonder English theologian Revd. Prof. Andrew Linzey (1995) argues that Jesus wants us to be “the servant species”. The recipients of our Christ-like service must include both animals and humans, because 1. God suffers in all suffering creatures; 2. Christ always sided with the marginalized; 3. Jesus died at least partly for animal liberation; 4. What Jesus experienced as an individual on the cross represents “incarnation of God’s ubiquitous presence in the psyches of all creatures victimized by predation, injustice, or despair” (Peters 2018), and via His resurrection, all the groaning creatures are offered hope of redemption.
