So you just gonna bring me a birthday gift on my birthday to my birthday party on my birthday with a birthday gift?
SeaWorld just got busted by a US government agency for violating the Animal Welfare Act — and we may have a rare chance to end its animal cruelty for good.
SeaWorld imprisons orca whales in tiny, cage-like tanks — and the USDA citation reveals conditions at the park are dangerous to the animals’ health. SeaWorld is still defending its barbaric practices, but huge pressure is building on the company.
In a surprise move, a Californian assemblyman has just introduced a law to make it illegal to keep orcas in captivity. This could change everything — but SeaWorld is already mounting a vicious campaign to defeat this assemblyman’s brave move. We need to tell the State of California that the public won’t accept SeaWorld’s imprisonment of orcas any longer.
California: Enact the Orca Welfare and Safety Act to stop SeaWorld’s imprisonment and torture of whales now.
More info here and here. And a trailer for the documentary on the cruelty of Seaworld, Blackfish, here. Similarly there’s a documentary called The Cove where a man works with dolphins and explains how captivity harms them, as well. TRIGGER WARNING FOR ANIMAL VIOLENCE AND DEATH IN BOTH DOCUMENTARIES.

You don’t even need an account to sign the petition you just need to give your name an email address and a zipcode/areacode/whatever for whatever country you reside in. Go do it gogogogogo.

i got lost in this
this fucked me up for a minute
This is what happens for real when I can’t find the right words.
Horse Tornado is the only phrase I will use from now on
THESE ARE SO GREAT
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

So a while back I signed a petition on this petition site, and you know how that goes. You sign it and you automatically get those email alerts sent to you.
So today I bip over to check my mail and I find this disgusting piece of work.
titled ‘Ban dangerous exotic snakes!’ in my messages.
Of all the important things these people could be signing, or creating and otherwise spending their time fighting for, this is the misguided bs they choose.
This is what reptile owners have to deal with. They have to fight for their pets left and right because people like this don’t like them.
And yes, that is all it is. They don’t like them. They don’t like them and wouldn’t own them as pets so they feel no one else should.
They use fear tactics and exaggerations in order to achieve what they want.
Note how they bold, but don’t provide a link, for the ‘strangled two year old girl’.
That’s because that story is ancient. It was a neighbors snake and the neighbor was the one to blame.
More dogs kill infants in a year than snakes ever have. More dogs get loose and maul or kill people, and yet no one is demanding we ban dogs as pets.
Hell, more deer cause car accidents that end in death, and we aren’t demanding they be exterminated.
Not to mention cattle, or horses, or any other pet. Almost every pet is capable of killing, and has probably killed more people than snakes or other reptiles have.
People need to get over the fear mongering and learn that snakes are wonderful pets. And while no one is forcing them to own them, and they totally understand if someone doesn’t want to, they have no right to take those pets away because they don’t understand them.
Their time is better spent on a worthy cause.
Not to mention many more kids experience sudden cot death than are faced with snakes.
This is all true and I’m reblogging it so people know this is a bullshit petition, BUT I think you should be aware that people ARE actually trying to ban pit bulls and bully breeds because of fear mongering exactly like this, and are killed en masse in many counties nationwide and in England and the UK as a whole, and DOMESTIC dogs and snakes are always in immediate danger from this exact mentality, so please be sure to bring that point up as well in your debates regarding the hysterical talk of banning snakes as pets.
ALSO, the strangles two year old girl did happen, an it happened because the owners “forgot” to close their tank.
