I came across a quote once that basically said that the sun continues to rise day after day even though few beings are around to appreciate it.  Let this be your daily reminder to keep doing you, regardless of whether or not you’re recognized for your greatness #sunrise

Ever think about how small these tanks really are? Of course not. SeaWorld is making you believe that these tanks beat the ocean. They are much happier here, they will tell you. Heck, their stadium is bigger than their biggest tank. What does that tell you? Caring? No. Educational? Not a darn bit. These animals deserve better. Not these small concrete teacups. These animals belong in the ocean. Pass it on.

Ever think about how small these paddocks really are? Of course not.

Horses can travel for 40 miles a day. Do you have any idea how many laps around a pasture they would have to make in a day to reach that?

And since they originate in Eurasia, obviously every single wild horse ever constantly travelled all over the biggest land mass in the world, exploring every piece of it in their lifetime.

Today in Mongolia, tomorrow in Spain, day after that, I dunno, South Africa?

This is how smart and logical you look when you make these posts.

HAHA NO WAIT NO IS THIS REAL^^^^^^

Hold on, let me tell you a thing about why your “rebuttal” is total shit.

I’ve grown up around horses. Literally since I was 2.

First off, I’m not sure if those pastures pictured above are even horse pastures tbh, but we’ll give you the benefit of the doubt if they are.

Secondly, source for your claim that they travel 40 miles in a day?

Third, Since you’re using a map of the Russia area, I’m assuming you’re comparing domesticated horses to the native wild breed of this area, being the Przewalski’s Horse, or Mongolian Wild Horse. FUN FACT: Mongolian Wild Horses are NOT the ancestors of today’s domestic horse. X What does that mean? That means your entire argument here is just 100% wrong. Those domestic horses you see in pastures do NOT come from the Mongolian Wild Horse that roamed the entire landmass of Mongolia, Spain, and so on.

Fourth, you do realize you’re comparing not only a land animal to an ocean animal, you’re comparing a flighty, domesticated prey animal to a non domesticated, wild apex predator of the ocean. If you don’t think you sound stupid yet then there’s no hope for you. There is little to no similarities these days of domestic horses and wild ones. Horses that are domesticated require a specialized diet, exercise  and care that wild horses do not need. This is something that is rather sad about domesticated horses, but true and must be done in order for their survival.

Shall we also discuss the fact that many wild horses of today do not in fact roam entire continents of land, but typically stay in one smaller range where food and water is readily available? Maybe we should talk about the wild horse populations that live in isolated areas, such as Cumberland Island or the Chincoteague ponies of Assoteague Island? Or take the Little Brookcliff Wild Horse population that only lives in an area about 56 miles across? Let’s compare that to Orcas. Maybe we can compare horses to this study talking about how Antarctic Orcas travel THOUSANDS of miles regularly in a migration pattern? Or what about this one discussing how the Southern Residents travel 100+ miles in a day, double the size of the Colorado Wild horse population’s entire range?

Or maybe we should talk about the fact that the vast majority of horses that are domesticated today are considered an entirely separate species (Domestic: Equus ferus caballus, wild: Equus ferus) from wild horses, and how captive Orcas are not separate from their wild counterparts?

Regardless of if you were trying to be funny? or not, this post is wrong and you seriously just keep pulling this Orca-horse comparison out of your ass and act like it’s accurate.

This is how smart and logical you look when you put together two non-comparable animals together to try and be witty to justify a selfish practice you support.

Most fitblrs’ idea of indulgence: One square of 70% dark chocolate once a week

My idea of indulgence: 12” pizza, twenty seven chocolate chip cookies, a gallon of coke, four bars of chocolate and a cheesecake.

I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.

This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.

Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.

My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.

I’d never even considered this but I support it
