Tale as old as time

Ask me anything  

This isn't a blog about bears. I just really like bears. 23 years old. Marylander. A lady. Tattooed. In love. I'm a Girl Scout, and also a Boy Scout.

‘Genie, You’re Free’: Suicide Is Not Liberation →

isympathizewithlinus:

I went farther than this in my post earlier.  

I’m glad that real media sources are pointing this out. 

Just read the comments under that article to see how badly we need this point to be made.  People actually think that people in pain from mental issues are BETTER OFF DEAD.  Honestly.  Commenters so often suck and are horrible ignorant idiots. 

Here’s another article:

Suicide Contagion and Social Media: The Danger of Sharing “Genie, you’re free” - The Washington Post

I didn’t even have to guess what today’s sketch dailies topic would be. So here’s my tribute I drew for a man who was so full of laughter and love. I really did cry over his loss. Aladdin was one of the films I knew him best for since I grew up with it, along with so many of his other roles. Again, RIP Robin, I’m so sorry you had so much sadness in your life, but I hope that you are in a better place, laughing like you always did for the world.

Some Captain America fans have literally no concept of historical context, like “oh my god, imagine when he woke up and found out that while he was frozen, the slaves were freed, the American colonies achieved independence from Britain, and mankind discovered fire!!”

Don’t forget the heart break he’ll feel when he sees the bones of his faithful t-rex on display at the museum of natural history. 

And don’t even mention Pangea.

1. Those tigers look thin.

2. Zoos are fucking stupid.

3. Capturing wild animals and using them for human entertainment is a super shitty thing to do.

4. This is not cool.

This is abuse and horrible.  Zoos are prisons.

Some zoos only take old animals to where they are given an easy life. Their maintenance is funded by people coming into the zoo.

Those tigers are not thin.

"Zoos are fucking stupid" wow such science you sold me

They weren’t captured for this purpose, they probably weren’t captured at all, it’s called rescuing. 

This is cool.

This is not abuse, it’s actually exercise if you think about it.

Zoos are not prisons. Zoos allow us to rescue animals, research them, and protect them from hunters and the dangers that we, as humans, impose on them.

I’m so done with all the shit about zoos on my fucking dash. 

Zoos literally save animals every day so why don’t you do your freaking research.

This comment is perfect^

Animals come to zoos as a result of 

  • being born captive
  • getting injured in the wild and rescued to live a healthy life in captivity
  • being rescued from black market dealers, private collectors, or the like who decide that they can no longer care for the animals or who had been illegally keeping the animals
  • being in a breeding program to increase their numbers because the animal is endangered in the wild

If you knew anything about tigers at all, you’d know that they are endangered in the wild due to poaching and hunting. It is of utmost importance that their numbers increase, or they will go extinct within the next fifty years. I don’t know what zoo this is so I don’t know their reputation, but the tigers look healthy, and this tug-of-war is good for them because some animals get stressed in zoos when they are bored. This isn’t solely to entertain zoo guests, it is to give the tigers something fun to do.

Zoos do not snatch animals from the wild without a good reason. If you want to protest animal captivity, go to SeaWorld and protest the orcas being kept there, they are far too large to belong in such cramped spaces and they are solely kept for entertainment.

Thank you and good day.

ALSO ITS NOT LIKE THEY’RE FORCING THE TIGERS TO GRAB THE ROPE, THE TIGER WANTS TO PLAY

Tigers play just like domestic cats play with each other, this is for the educational benefit of the visitors and the enrichment benefit of the tigers. Also word to the comment above. Tigers are endangered to the point that they cannot repopulate themselves in the wild, they need the help of captive institutions like zoos, where they live carefree lives free of stress and can breed and birth without fear that other predators and mating competitors will come along and eat their cubs.

Furthermore, these tigers are NOT thin. In fact, one of the ones in the large group looks borderline obese. People who know nothing about animals need to stop talking about animals.

Boosting the shit out of this because I’m so damn tired of whiney morons (who probably never get outside) bitching about animal’s rights when they really have no fucking clue.

DO YOUR GODDAMN HOMEWORK.

ALL OF EVERYTHING IN THIS COMMENTARY

I love zoos because I can see my favorite animal, penguins, without zoos I wouldn’t be able too

Yes!!!
