I’ve always wanted to go do this: meditating with Tiger Cubs at Tiger Temple in Thailand .

Why? Literally of what benefit is this to anyone except the selfish desires of a tourist to have a cool story or photo? This is not beneficial to tigers. Tiger Temple is a cruel, despicable place that treats apex predators like commodities. That gives substandard care for a profit and does absolutely NOTHING for tigers as a whole. It’s not a sanctuary, it’s not a rescue, it’s a for profit tourist trap and it should not be on ANY reasonable person’s bucket list.

I just want to pet a tiger cub with my chances of getting mauled at a 0.  Plus if some people find peace by connecting with animals then let them, as long as the animals are properly cared for, not beaten or abused, or starved or treated unfairly or in any danger. plus what are tigers supposed to get? A check? I thought the tigers would get a new friend and snuggle partner. 

Did you even read what I wrote?  They aren’t treated well.  They are hit, they are kept in poor cages, they are chained to the ground, they are overbred, they are fed a terrible diet.  Tigers do not need friends or snuggle partners.  They need proper care and to be able to live under the most natural conditions possible in captivity.  They need to be respected at a distance, not interacting with people directly in a way that endangers them and us.  That’s what they are supposed to get.
These people are finding “peace” at the expense of animals.  So no, I won’t “let them” free of criticism.  
Also, in no universe can you pet a conscious tiger without the risk of getting mauled.  Js.

What happened to tumblr; place to look at cats, procrastinate, and respect peoples opinions and educate them in a respectful manner? And hey I’m sure there are other places where you can find tranquility with animals that aren’t harmed this one place can’t be the ONLY place in the world, also if a dog can raise a cow I can cuddle a tiger

No.  Don’t do the “what’s wrong with tumblr!” excuse, it’s dismissive and diverting.  Real people are on tumblr, with real opinions and educations on topics, it’s not this separate entity free of criticism.  Tiger Temple is a place of animal abuse.  And I will not respect the opinions of people that support animal abuse. Interacting directly with big cats and other lethal animals is unethical and irresponsible.  You want to interact with an animal one on one, choose one that can’t kill you or wont be punished for doing so, or choose an actual domestic animal.
Here are some sources on Tiger Temple

And here are some sources on cub petting:
Big Cat Rescue details why cub petting is inhumane and leads to many cub mortalities.
Believe it or not, petting cubs can contribute to canned hunts.
Video by Big Cat Rescue talking about the cruelty of cub petting while showing legitimate cases of cruelty and a painful look at the lives they live.
Lions, Tigers, and Bears Sanctuary on cub petting
It isn’t anyone’s right to pet a tiger cub.  Certified zoological staff at reputable facilities can interact with tiger cubs if their health is at stake, and they always pull all contact when the cubs are old enough to take care of themselves, because that is the responsible thing to do.  That is the only time I’m okay with people touching big cat cubs outside of veterinary procedures.
Please understand that this is abuse, not a spiritual experience or connection, and I am trying to bring awareness to that.

We know why.

Don’t forget Charlie Sheen. He’s been arrested for domestic violence at least six times and shot a woman. With a gun. And he’s still got a career.

Sean Penn tied Madonna to a chair and beat her. Fuck him. Fuck all of them.

Michael Fassbender
Matthew Fox
John Lennon
Paul McCartney
Ringo too I’m pretty sure
Phil Spector, although he’s now in jail for killing a lady he beat on Ronnie Spector for years and still got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Axl Rose
Vince Neil
Sean Penn
Charlie Sheen
Jim Morrison tried to set fire to his girlfriend
Stephen Segal
Tommy Lee
Ozzy Osbourne
Mickey Rourke
Bill Murray
Gary Busey
Tom Sizemore
Christian Slater
James Caan
Josh Brolin
Edward Furlong
I could go on.
The point isn’t that the men on the left don’t deserve everything bad they have coming to them.  The point is where the fuck is all the outrage when the men on the right do it.  So many of our pop culture heroes are abusers and nobody seems to care.
Like, even if we’re gonna stick to the NFL, Ben Roethlisberger patiently sat out his six game suspension for rape and continued on with his career with little outrage. 
If we’re really going to care now about ostracizing perpetrators of domestic violence, we got a lotta slack to pick up.


NOT BILL MURRAY :(

BREAKING: Seattle becomes the first city to raise its minimum wage to $15/hour. SHARE if Congress should take Seattle’s lead! 
the current minimum wage (at least in NY) is $8.00 and less than a year ago it was $7.25, so yes.

Wow

Nope nope and nope. Make better decisions and life and you won’t be working a minimum wage job.

^ That’s literally the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever read in my life. Are you the kind of person that goes up to homeless people and tells them to get a job? Good fuuuuuuuuuuuucking lord. If everyone was able to get a “better” job, there would be absolutely no-one populating the mass expanse of the workforce. Are you unable to see how this suggestion is completely and utterly illogical? And extremely rude?
Thank god people in Seattle have good heads on their shoulders so single mothers working 3 minimum wage jobs to feed their children can finally be treated like actual live human beings with needs and not capitalistic automatons. 

"Just get a better job" is the most white bread privilege shit I’ve ever heard.

I don’t even think it’s white privilege. I think it’s just near-bottomless dumbfuckery.

"Get a better job," they said.
Suddenly, every custodian everywhere quits their job and gets a better one. Now, upon entering public restrooms, everyone is handed a spray bottle and toilet brush, because now they have to scrub their own shit out of that public porcelain throne. Women’s restrooms come complete with plastic bags, because they have to bring their soiled period products home with them and dispose of them at home, because there is no more public waste removal.
"Get a better job," they said.
All fast food employees quit and find a “better job”. No more fast food places! There also aren’t any restaurants. Better learn to cook your own shitty garbage burgers. You have only yourself to yell at if you forget the cheese.
"Get a better job," they said.
Retail stores no longer have any employees. All shopping must be done online, but you have to drive out and pick up the supplies yourself because the Fedex people quit and got better jobs, too.
"Just get a better job," they said!
You now have to grow and make every single thing you ever consume for the rest of your life, because no one wants to do it for you at $7 an hour.
Fuck you.

^ THE LAST COMMENT THOUGH FUCKIN AMEN

Washington first at everything, like usual

THIS STRESSES ME OUT BECAUSE NOW THE COST OF LIVING WILL INCREASE
