    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.

    Client: Why is my website green? You know that isn’t the color of my brand.

    Me: I’m not sure what you mean. There’s no green anywhere on your site.

    Client: Not on my website. The Website itself.

    Me:

    Client: On Google. When I search my company the website name is green. It has to be brown. Same goes for the blue link. That has to change as well.

    "Scientists have proven that our government is far from what we believe.

    An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military.

    The preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy. In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter.

    In either case, the result is the same: Big corporations, the ultra-wealthy and special interests with a lot of money and power essentially make all of the decisions. Citizens wield little to no political power. America, the findings indicate, tends towards either of these much more than anything close to what we call “democracy” — systems such as majoritarian electoral democracy or majoritarian pluralism, under which the policy choices pursued by the government would reflect the opinions of the governed.”

    Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

    Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularlyhow do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

    Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.
