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.

Ballerinas are the most underrated athletes.

GUYS SHE IS SPINNING ON HER TOE.

ALL HER WEIGHT ON HER TOE. 

HER TOE.

TOE.

Thank you someone for finally acknowledging this.

People always make ballet seem like such a wimpy, easy sport. 

While we are dancing, we have to:

  • turn out our feet
  • hyper extended our knees
  • tuck our buts under
  • flatten our stomach
  • close your ribcage (to the point where you cant breathe)
  • shoulders are down and back
  • elbows are lifted
  • hands and fingers are soft
  • neck is long
  • use proper head movements

ALL THIS WHILE STILL IN OUR STARTING POSITIONS NOW DO ALL THAT WHILE MOVING AND LOOKING GORGEOUS. AND EFFORTLESS

You try holding your leg by your head without touching it and turning on the tips of your toes and wooden shoes and tell me ballet isn’t hard.

People always say “don’t be a ballerina” and “don’t be such a pussy”

when really ballerinas and vagina’s are probably the most hardcore things

AND BALLERINAS WITH VAGINA’S ARE JUST STRAIGHT UP METAL

SO DO NOT TELL ME BALLET IS FUCKING EASY AND NOT A REAL SPORT

Most ballerina’s are also known for dancing until their feet bleed, bandaging them up and getting back on with the show.

ballerinas are fucking hardcore ok 

Ballerinas are fucking metal

When Caroline Walter of Freiburg, Germany died at the age of 16, her sister, ,Selma, had a sculptor cast a life size sculpture for the gravestone - Every morning since Caroline’s funeral, a fresh flower was found tucked in the crook of the arm, and still is to this day - Nobody knows who leaves it - Every single morning! - Caroline died in 1867 - For 146 years, someone has been leaving flowers…

Caroline totes had a vampire lover.

This is by far, my favorite theory.

Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.

THIS FUCKING MOVIE THOUGH. 

JUST WATCH IT. WATCH IT AGAIN. WATCH IT THREE MOTHERFUCKING TIMES BECAUSE I BET YOUR COTTON SOCKS THERE’S A WITTY ONE-LINER IN THERE THAT YOU’LL HAVE MISSED

IT IS A STORY ABOUT A CONFIDENT YOUNG WOMAN WHO DON’T NEED NO MAN BUT GETS ONE ANYWAY WHILE SHE DANCES HER ASS OFF AND SINGS LIKE A FUCKIN BEAST WHILE CALLING OUT RACIST BULLSHIT WITH QUEEN LATIFAH

IT HAS JOHN TRAVOLTA IN DRAG

IT HAS A CHARACTER GROWTH OF A PLUS-SIZE CHARACTER WHERE SHE DOESN’T FUCKING LOSE WEIGHT SHE BECOMES AMAZINGLY CONFIDENT IN HERSELF AND DOES WHAT’S DAMN RIGHT

I SHIT YOU NOT THIS MOVIE WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

Believe it or not, my school was going to do this play, and after about five months of raising money and practicing and hard work, the school cancelled it, lying about not knowing that they had been working on it for so long because it had apparently never approved, and they wouldn’t approve it because they said it was “damaging and dangerous to their character and is not a good role model for students their age.” So the kids fought for it, and brought it to the local news’ attention and took it to the 10:00 news. They fought so hard to get it back, and the school still refused to give it back to them. My sister was playing Penny Pingleton’s mom, and she was DEVASTATED. This was the best thing that ever happened to her. She became so much more confident with this play.

Good news though, a local theater decided to support them and they got to perform after all! And the original writers of Hairspray sent them all flowers and snacks with a message that said “Thanks for showing everybody that you truly can’t stop the beat!”

These are the news links about the subject if you want to check it out.
