We adopted a kitty yesterday, isn’t he precious?  He had a bumpy start with one of our dogs but he seems to not be too shaken by it it all. His name is Dexter~

How I feel about religion. God should be presented as what he is, love and kindness. Stop using his name to justify your racism, homophobia and sexism

I’m not religious, but this comic is flipping adorable.

Children Read To Shelter Cats To Soothe Them

(Photos by Animal Rescue League Of Berks County. You can follow them on Facebook.)

Also good for the kids. They encourage having slow readers read to the family pets. A dog will listen to a kid read a whole book one damn sssyl-la——-ble at a time, and it will never get frustrated, or correct their pronunciation, or start playing Angry Bird because it can’t stand listening to the slowness any more. The dog will look at the kid approvingly, because, human. Human is talking. Human is interacting.

So this is a great win-win.

quote

The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.

I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.

I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.

They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.

gather round children it is time for some actual tru bird facts okay i am here to tell u all about angel wing (and why you shouldnt feed waterfowl bread)
angel wing is a syndrome most commonly seen in waterfowl (ducks,geese, etc.) in which their last wing joint twists around and causes the end of the wing to flip out. waterfowl with angel wing cant fly and often have a shorter lifespan than birds without the syndrome.
so how do waterfowl get angel wing? in one word, malnutrition. in more words, from people feeding them bread.
bread (white bread especially) is essentially candy for ducks and geese. it has 0 nutritional value but they eat it because it tastes good and they dont know its bad for them. its also really easy for them to get, because people literally throw it at them. 
feeding waterfowl bread products is bad for more reasons too:
it causes overcrowding because animals flock to easy sources of food.
uneaten bread causes water pollution and can lead to the destruction of pond flora and fauna.
uneaten bread can also attract rodents and insects.
bread gives ducks diarrhea, which introduces diseases into pond systems that will definitely infect people.
feeding causes waterfowl to abandon natural behaviors and become buddy buddy with people which is 100% never ever good for wildlife.
now, i understand your nostalgia and urge to feed the ducks. and while that still isnt the best thing to do (see the last bullet point), there are better things to feed waterfowl than bread:
duck feed you can buy in a store (or even at some locations)
cracked corn, barley and other such grains
regular bird seed
defrosted peas
other stuff mentioned here!
tl;dr: feeding waterfowl bread products harms both the birds and the ecosystem, but alternatives such as bird seed or grapes can let you keep the fun of pond feedings without the death count!

I made a slideshow about how to create a fictional character… I got most of the information from the ‘start writing fiction’ (free) course on the OpenUniversity website and found it incredibly useful so here’s a visual version for you :)

Some ticks carry a disease, so we’re supposed to avoid them all.

Some sharks bite people, so we’re supposed to always be cautious in the ocean.

Some snakes are venomous, so if you can’t decide whether it’s deadly or not, assume deadly.

But no, not all men.

Hey tumblr! Did you know that if you suffer from depression / anxiety or any other mental illness, you can register your dog as an emotional support animal, making it illegal for a landlord to refuse to rent to you? That’s right. No breed restrictions, no weight restrictions, no matter what, they are not allowed to refuse.

This includes cats, rabbits, birds, guinea pigs, etc.!! Go here to register your pet as an ESA :~)
