This is important. Stop big cat hunting. This literally is making me cry.
The way the lion tries to shut out the light…
:Why would you shoot it?
I cannot think of any reason to kill a Lion. You don’t eat it. It’s a waste.
My tears were real during this scene.
got a racist response while applying to colleges in the uk, and the social justice in me just couldn’t not respond.
im dying this is amazing
*cries at the glory of response*

four for you Kuah, you go Kuah
So my friend and I went to the Madison Avenue Pub (The Maddy) on Thursday night. If you’re not aware, it’s a really popular pub in Toronto particularly for students. It’s a restored mansion so there are multiple floors, each with a different atmosphere. It’s busy, especially on Thursday nights.
Anyways, my friend and I were approached by a guy in a quieter area of the pub. He seemed really drunk and could barely form words. He was also “looking for his friends”. But he kept asking us all these random questions that were getting progressively funnier and funnier so we played along. But as time went on it was increasingly clear that he was hitting on us. After finding out my friend was not interested in men, he started solely hitting on me. This included grabbing my hands and stroking my arm to make me “feel the spark between us”, and just trying to convince me that we were perfect for each other. Initially it was really entertaining to see what he would come up with next. But oh man, was this guy persistent.
He also eventually waved over this other guy who started talking to us. Again, my friend made it clear she was not interested in men but he continued talking to her. So guy #1 continues with his game but it turned really sexual after a while. He kept trying to convince us to leave the bar with him to go party with him and guy #2. We told him again and again that we were absolutely not going anywhere with anyone we didn’t know, but again, this guy was persistent.
I started getting uncomfortable when he would talk about his dick size and other things related to it. Also the friends he was looking for originally were across the room and sometimes I would notice them watching us and obviously making remarks about the situation. This made me wonder how many girls he was going to try this with that night, or how many he already had tried it with. I wasn’t paying attention a lot to guy #2 but apparently he kept hitting on my friend. I mean he knew she wasn’t interested in him or his entire gender but he kept at it. It’s not the first time something like that has happened to her at a bar and it really makes me boil to think that some men see that kind of thing as a “challenge” rather than her just being the way she is.
This is the part that made me really frustrated though. So in the middle of all these shenanigans a bartender/busser came through our area collecting empty cups and drinks on the counters. When he got to the counter we were standing at he spoke to us while collecting glasses.
"Hey! Don’t you guys hate it when girls wear tight leather pants and have no ass?"
And then he walked away. I was really confused at first, but then I realized he was talking about me. I was wearing full length black Lululemon “Wunder Unders”. Nothing close to leather, but they were tight black leggings, which are a really popular style. They’re comfortable and well made, loads of girls wear them and I’d never heard a guy complain about them until now.
One of the worst things is that I was actually feeling pretty good about my body that night/the last few weeks. I’ve lost 55 pounds in the past while, so excuse me for trying to show off one of my few physical assets (long legs).
I’d just really like to know what he was thinking before, during, and after he made that comment. He was telling me in the most obvious way that he thought I had a flat butt. Which I do! There’s no denying it and I’ve accepted it long ago, it’s just not in my genetics as a Native American. It’s not like I don’t do squats every day to try and make this problem go away.
But it wasn’t the insult that bothered me, it was the fact that I was insulted by someone who knew nothing about me and for no reason at all. Did he think about my feelings or my body image when he thought about telling me this apparently very important fact? Because like most people, I am very aware of every flaw I have, especially physically.
Did it bring him joy to put others down? Did he think he was doing me a favour by letting me know? Did he want me, and girls with similar body types, to not wear leggings anymore so he wouldn’t have to go through the horrible ordeal of having to stare at our flat butts?
Like, I’m really perplexed, honestly.
ALSO DOES ANYONE KNOW ANY GOOD WORKOUT PLANS FOR THE PERFECT BOOTY!?
I want one of those marriages where they’ve been married 20 years but are still crazy in love and still cuddle on the couch and kiss a lot. I want those kind of marriages that make my kids nauseous because how in love their parents are.
accidentally hurting an animal is the worst feeling i would rather die one thousand deaths than step on a doggy’s innocent lil foot
Some people are worth melting for.
want to see this soo bad…
Like first of all you’re in an ecology class. If I learned anything in this class it’s that humans have fucked up everything.
My friend and I just stared at each other after we heard that.
The only thing I could think of to do was have a loud conversation with her about the bounty many countries have for killing poachers.
