paul and ian are so….. :/
yes i am for animal rights, poc rights, and gay rights but i am able to appropirately focus on all three at once. all are extremely important to me.
the problem is that animal rights are only important to people who feel like they need to speak for animals but not for their own fucking human race. they feel people they don’t really care about can protect themselves. It’s not their issue. But is animal rights y'all’s issue? Or should Cecil’s mom speak up? Y'all care about animal rights but not the chick fil a or whataburger you’re eating. Y'all care about what goes on in China but animal cruelty happens to our chickens and cows too. hmp
The media sheds dim light on black issues and gay issues when we are “violent”. They don’t actually shed BRIGHT light on who black people actually are. The media portrays black people as clowns and angered people and gay people as immoral or disgusting. The media is allowing people to riot and get enraged about a beautiful lion but jailing and killing people for getting enraged about another black person getting murdered.
Empathize with animals because they don’t have a voice, yes care about and save these beautiful creatures. But CARE about our own human race, people who have lost their voice in death and for 100+ because of the color of their skin or who they love. There are many issues that does not mean we can’t do something and talk about allllll of these issues. That does not mean we need to build up one more than the other.
We need to stop crying about animals and turning away from our own brothers and sisters. Why do yall think Cecil didn’t deserve it but Sandra Bland did?
