“This was an actual game played at circuses & carnivals, mostly in celebration of “INDEPENDENCE DAY”, all over America from the late 19th century well into the early 1940s. 3 balls cost them a dime to hit a grinning Black CHILD peeking through a platform painted to resemble an African jungle while the child’s head appeared through the open mouth of a crocodile. This is a part of our history that you will NEVER see in any textbook or any class. Get in tune my people, to be ignorant of the past is to be blinded going into the future…. “

If you can’t go vegan

if you absolutely can’t go vegan for health/economic/other reasons, you can still:
-boycott zoos, circuses, and aquariums
-boycott leather, fur, wool, and silk
-adopt your pets from a shelter
-educate yourself and others about the harms of animal agriculture
-donate money or volunteer your time for vegan organizations
-eat plant-based when it’s possible, even if it’s just for one meal a day

your options are never either “be 100% vegan” or “exploit animals in every way possible and be fiercely anti-vegan”. even those whose circumstances prevent them from being fully vegan can take meaningful steps to help animals! every bit counts!

Something really crazy to me is that in modern English we have this phrase “bread and circuses” that comes from the days of Rome like I wonder if roman politicians ever could’ve known that their diversion tactics would be an idiom almost two thousand years later in a language that didn’t even exist yet

I had two white girls get in my face, demanding to know if I was wearing clothing from a sweatshop.

I was at a circus protest. A circus protest. It wasn’t even a slaughterhouse or anti-meat protest. Nothing to do with labor or products. It was a protest against putting animals in cages and chains, and they still attempted to use oppressed workers as a defense mechanism.

Not to mention the girls were probably wearing sweatshop-made clothing themselves, unless they were privileged enough to be able to afford fair trade labor clothing (not all of us can). I mean, they certainly had enough money to watch wild animals be paraded out like clowns for their entertainment, so I hope they used that money to support fair labor products at the very least since they seemed so passionate about it.

My point is, it doesn’t matter what you protest, or how you protest. People will use any excuse to continue to exploit animals, and they will happily use the plight of marginalized human beings to do so.

Humans in Space

I’ve been reading a lot about the whole “Humans are weird” to aliens thing going around and I love it all. Like completely, 100%. I particularly love how we, as humans, interact with other species because we consider them cute. Like how we have dogs and lizards and such.

Could you imagine an alien coming to earth and seeing just all the PETS that we have. Considering how most of them came to be, they’re dangerous animals. Like snakes (pythons that squeeze their prey and grow so large and we just accommodate for their growth, showing them off to other humans like they’re our children and we’re PROUD of their size), I mean we keep sharks and fucking puffer fish in tanks to look at cause they’re pretty! Jelly fish man! We keep those sucks despite their sting and name them! And we can identify which one is which!

It also got me thinking because I was playing with my dog, Valkyrie, and she likes to play bite. Not hard and the worse I get are scratches on my hands when she gets rough but I will literally put my hand in her mouth just to play. Or to grab something she’s not supposed to eat. Animal training guys! She’s trained to soft bite. And if a dog were to go for a hard bite, my immediate response is to try and teach them that’s not ok. We train tigers for circuses! Aliens having no clue how to react to use literally training these wild animals out of their instincts so they don’t hurt us. Granted with lions and tigers its really hard and they do end up attacking someone but still! That not only takes balls but also stubbornness. We take these killers and rewrite their behavior.

I like to think that a human goes and meets a new species, one known for being aggressive to others. They try to interact with a small one and gets like bit or scratched and the human goes into training mode. Popping it on the nose and telling it “no.” Everyone else in their squad is freaking out because the human just smacked the animal but the human keeps at it until the creature will allow it to pet them, hell even hold them. The animal is unhappy but no one likes being smacked in the nose! Just animal training guys.
