Gardening, bro. Hmm, why does that seem ironic? This is a glimpse into the masculine ideal that we are collectively entrenched in. In that conception of being a man, bro, gangster, boss, or whatever one calls it, tenderly caring for the Earth doesn’t contribute to one’s social status. Getting your macros, obvi, but ensuring that those calories were harvested in an environmentally conscious way? Scoff. Flex.
After this homework assignment, I’m leaning pro-GMO. We need to differentiate between GMO and Monsanto, rather than heap our fear and loathing on a believed-to-be potentially carcinogenic (not proven) technique which, in reality, is not solely controlled by agribusiness. Millions of potential cases of starvation and malnutrition have been prevented with new crops such as the “Golden Banana” or flood-resistant rice. In these instances, human ingenuity and manipulation are creating rejuvenating relationships between people and the Earth. Celebi is happy.
