the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people

you dont need vaccines, I havent had any and Im still doing great

wow, what a compelling argument. you’ve got me

in other news, i am still alive therefore death must be a myth

Anonymous asked: The term 'normalization' is a pathetic attempt at creating strife where there is none. Tumblrfags do this often enough that it has become laughable, not laudable to pander this rhetoric. Normalization, cultural-appropriation, anti-shaming... All this nonsense spoon-fed to the tumblrites by helicopter parents who tried to instill this notion of 'the beautiful, unique snowflake', but it ignores several key facts about people, life, and the internet. No one cares. People want porn. Grow up. Tahdah

uh, well this is random

because you said the word “tumblrfags”, your entire argument is invalid

you’re also an asshole

grow up. tahdah. some other sarcastic bullshit.

(I’m sick so I can’t formulate a decent response to this idiot. If anyone would like to input on this, feel free! Otherwise I’m just gonna delete this ask and pretend like this anon doesn’t exist.)

I wonder if this is a reaction to all the non-porn images we post. Especially me, as Other Mod.

I am definitely not sorry for showing everyone cool monster designs even if they don’t involve monster dick, anon. Try again.

basically the summed up version of anon’s ask is: GIBE MOAR PRON

except they tried to dress it up with a bunch of anti social justice bullshit that has literally nothing to do with… anything. The only time this blog has been about social justice was when we talked about the Bad Dragon bullshit. 

tbh I’d love to have a discussion (not on this blog) with this person if they weren’t an asshole that throws around the f word. and also the “people want porn, grow up” part just kinda made me laugh at them really hard.

I think this is the kind of ask that makes one want to go out and find all the sickeningly cute non-pron images of monsters or whatnot, isn’t it? Maybe that’s just me…

Seriously guys don’t ignore this like the media is. 

The City Centre of Glasgow is over run with protesters, people are setting off flares and attacking each other, police tried to form a human barrier to prevent the rioters from spreading, Unionists were burning the Saltire, there are claims that someone may have been stabbed. And the news sites aren’t reporting this. 

This city was my home for half a year and it’s absolutely killing me that people aren’t paying attention to what’s going on right now. 

Seriously, I watched major news channels for three hours today and this is getting ignored. Only sky news mentioned this, but called it “good humoured” and “boisterous.”

THIS IS NOT GOOD HUMOURED OR BOISTEROUS. THIS IS DANGEROUS AND BRUTAL.

Please get out of the city centre, or if you have to be there, avoid Buchanan Street and George Square. Be safe!

Don’t watch the link I posted if violence is triggering.

I want to say this is either a private pet or a very small, unprofessional zoo. Having worked at a larger zoo —albeit not in the big cats department— we were told that interaction with animals that are a potential hazard (which, yes, includes tigers and other things, like maguari storks*) is limited if not prohibited with the higher risk animals. 
Followers? Do you guys know where this is from?

that tiger belongs to michael jamison, and nothing about this gif is ethical. for instance, tigers are wild apex predators, and therefore direct contact is discouraged by every responsible and ethical facility. other than that, any responsible facility would put the tiger under anesthesia first before pulling out a teeth. 
other than general unethicalness, keeping big cats (and yes, tigers included) is downstraight cruel and conservation damaging since it contributes to cub petting industries, tiger part trade in the black market, and many more.
as for michael jamison, i’m sure you’ll learn more about him if you go to tumblr user bigcatawareness or panthxra and search for the tag #michael jamison

I just looked into Micheal Jamison, and it’s sad that this post has over 300,000 notes.
Thank you for the additional information!
