The Perilous Attraction of Owning Exotic Pets
Nat Geo did a lovely article a few months ago on some of the issues and controversy surrounding the ownership of exotic pets in the US. One big thing I’d like to add:
One of my biggest concerns with exotic pets is that they can be incredibly difficult to rehome, so that even in cases where you did everything right, circumstances may force you to put your animals on one of the long, long waiting lists of animals trying to get into sanctuaries. In the show “Animal Repo” there was a couple who had built a lovely enclosure for their two tigers and took great care of them but were forced to give them up by their insurance company. They were lucky to be able to find a sanctuary.
People pay thousands of dollars for cubs, but adult big cats and other exotics are actually often worth more dead than alive.
A few interesting docs on exotic animal ownership I’d recommend:
The Elephant in the Living Room (available on Netflix)
Louis Theroux: America’s Most Dangerous Pets
Parrot Confidential (available on Netflix)
One Lucky Elephant (available on Netflix)
Vice: An Inside Look at the Exotic Animal Trade (full mini doc linked)
Project Nim (while Nim was not technically a pet, this is a great doc that shows how wrong things can go for an exotic animal in human care)

Me when I first joined Tumblr:
Oh, I already reblogged this. That's too bad.
I reblogged this every day for the last three weeks and I'mma do it again. I don't give a fuck.

anti-ableism has turned into excusing abusers and abusive behaviour
lgbt activism has turned into fuck the gays
and there is a blog dedicated to making bullshit accessory identities under the guise of actual lgbtqia orientations and identities, and trivialize real world transphobia, dysphoria, homophobia and all the other shit we deal with.
whats the weather gonna be for 2015 you think
It’s amazing how things have changed.
There are now people that violently defend the idea that you can choose to be gay/bi/trans/ect and that they are helping the community. There are people who berrate lesbians and gay men for not being bisexual as it’s is transphobic to be monosexal.
I am so glad most of this shit stays on tumblr and only leaks out into the real world in small ammounts. I don’t think I could handle this bullshit every day

So I’ve heard somebody wanted to see a gif of that moment when Brian Cox was ran over by Stephen Hawking. Here it is, I hope it loads.
This gif changed my life
I think you’re forgetting the best part. This is from Monty Python Live and Brian is pointing out all the wrong science in The Galaxy Song. Stephen appears, runs him over then trundles off, singing the song.
