Actually, don’t involve yourself in and intrude on any animal’s life unless
1) it’s to help/provide nourishment/rescue/rehabilitate/provide a better life for them
2) it’s to protect them
3) they initiate contact or express that they want contact with you

Treat them with the same basic respect you would human animals. And always remember everything we’ve taken from them, everything we’ve altered about them and their lives, all the irreversible damage we have done. Humans have harmed animals more than we will ever be able to repay, and we need to stop treating them like we have any right to them and their bodies.

I really like interacting with animals you don't see on a daily basis, like whales and tigers and such. But how can I go see them without contributing to their exploitation in places like Seaworld? I hope this makes sense.

Why do you have to interact with these animals? They are wild animals who 99% of the time do not want or seek out human contact. You can learn and appreciate plenty about them by researching them or watching documentaries. I hope you don’t currently visit places like Seaworld and zoos to “interact” with these animals (firstly, there is no interaction in these places, the animals are depressed and miserable living a deplorable life while people gawk at and mock them.) That is selfish and completely one-sided, those animals do not wish to be on display for humans.

If you want to be around them in real life, then visit the specialist animal sanctuaries that work in the animals’ best interest. You can volunteer your time and work at/for sanctuaries to help animals. If you’re serious about these animals, you could even work towards becoming someone who rescues/rehabilitates them.

The only reason you should insert yourself into a wild animal’s life is to provide help to better their situation/health/wellness etc, or unless they approach you first. But they are not obligated to please you or to offer you relationships/interaction/entertainment, and you should not expect that or feel entitled to them. If your main goal is to see/touch/be around wild animals rather than to help them or show them respect, then you need to get over it and switch on David Attenborough instead. That’s not why animals are on this earth.

Hi Rat Grrrl, Super blog, extra credit for the porn industry hate A++. From one vegan to another I feel we need to get united on not being so condescending to the carnists. yes, they are quite terrible and I have no idea why they continue killing our animal palls. I mean gosh. but seriously, I have good friends who have become entirely vegan for years now and half a family gone vegetarian (just by being sweet and well informed at them). no one goes vegan because an activist hurt their feelers.

Yeah cheers but no thanks. I’ve had pretty equal success with my way of educating others about veganism and animal rights.

As always, I speak for the animals. I don’t act loving and caring to the people responsible for their centuries of suffering, oppression, abuse and murder. I’m not a fuzzy wuzzy vegan activist because no victim would want me to be that way to their oppressors.

Animals are being raped, mutilated, gassed alive, skinned alive, electrocuted, beaten, tortured, enslaved and murdered. cows are being strung up by one leg to have their throats slit. Calves are being stolen from their mothers and slaughtered. Pigs are being thrown in boiling water alive, chickens are having their bodies mutilated and abused, roosters are being ground up alive, geese are having pipes rammed down their throats and you want me to be nice about that? You want me to praise people and treat them with love, sweetness and respect?

Where is the respect for the animals? For their suffering, their pain, their eternal damnation? If you honestly believe that pats on the back, a few cute vegan meals, a “every step counts!” and a meatless Monday is an adequate response to the perpetrators of a holocaust, then you’re either a speciesist or you really need to get your priorities straight. And you should know that if you like my blog so much.

My stance has always been clear, and my opinions are all well informed with research and facts to back them up. But if people get offended by my stance on their participance in the greatest atrocities ever inflicted on sentient beings, that’s their problem. I’m not going to be nice to those who actively harm others.

Hi, I have no idea if you can help me but even if you can't maybe others can. I have a little mouse living in my home and I really don't want to hurt it to remove it from here. My dad agreed not to kill it when he comes home later this week but it's ideal that I deal with it myself. It's pooping everywhere and eating food that's out, not to mention it got into my sugar glider's food supply and made a mess! Any idea how I can catch it and relocate it and soon? Thanks in advance!

Hey! I’ll publish this to see if anyone has more tips, but when i was younger, my mum always used to catch them with a humane trap (the one we had was a container they would get in to get food, but they wouldn’t be able to get out) and we’d release them away from the house. I’m not sure if that was what was best for the mice though, so anyone feel free to weigh in!!

What a cheeky, eating sugar glider food jeez.

You are an oppressive piece of white shit with your "mostly vegan" post! I demand the title of demi-vegan, since my diet is ~70% vegetables. if you don't agree with me, you're an oppressor. Just like demisexuals, we are an oppressed minority and demand that the tumblr SJW take up on our cause! We will not be forgotten anymore! Right to demi-vegans!

For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media

Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.
