Earth Crisis - The Pallid Surgeon
a friendly reminder: COLLEGE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE
- people who went/go to college are not ‘better’ or ‘smarter’ than anyone else
- there is no right time to pursue ‘higher education’
- no matter what, you are still a person and you deserve to be treated with respect
Russian climber Kirill Oreshkin climbs to the top of tall buildings and takes photos with a wide-angle lens.
I have lots of dreams about high heights. At times, I am confident in my dreams and other times I am deathly afraid. Either the way the thrill of heights is exciting and scary. I like a good thrill from time to time. You can lose yourself in the moment and forget everything in the world that make you afraid.
FARM WHICH WAS FILMED ALLOWING WORKERS TO SEXUALLY ABUSE, TORTURE AND INJURE ANIMALS IS TRYING TO BAN FILMING ON FARMS LIKE HIS
In 2012, Mercy For Animals exposed horrific cruelty to animals at Bettencourt Dairies, Idaho’s largest dairy factory farm. During the investigation, MFA documented workers sexually abusing animals, and viciously beating, kicking, and jumping on cows in order to deliberately inflict pain. The investigation led to criminal cruelty charges against workers and a manager at the facility.
In direct response to an undercover recent investigation exposing horrific animal abuse and sexual assault at Bettencourt Dairies, Idaho’s largest dairy factory farm, corrupt lawmakers have introduced a bill to silence whistleblowers and keep the dairy industry’s dirty secrets hidden from public view.
Introduced as Senate Bill 1337, this ag-gag bill has already passed through the Idaho Senate, and is now pending in the House of Representatives. From there, it will go to the governor’s desk to be signed into law. If enacted, SB 1337 would make it a crime to take photos or video at a factory farm without the owner’s permission.
SB 1337 is a pathetic attempt by pro-factory farm legislators to stifle undercover investigations and allow criminal animal abuse to continue, undetected, at factory farms and slaughterhouses across the state. And instead of fostering greater transparency in food production, Idaho’s ag-gag bill would allow factory farmers to ignore important food safety, environmental, and worker safety laws.
PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST
"Rows and rows of calf hutches for a 16,000 cow dairy farm in eastern Oregon - one of the many dairy farms in the US.
On dairy farms, there are new babies being born every single day. Many dairy farms use the “hutch housing” system. Babies stolen from their mothers after birth (standard dairy industry practice) are housed in “calf hutches” (as seen). These babies, who are not allowed to drink their mothers’ milk, are fed “milk replacer” (another standard dairy industry practice) while their milk goes into the products humans consume.
For every hutch, there is a grieving mother and a motherless calf. The dairy industry would have us believe that this is humane. Don’t buy the lie.”
it = object, thing, resource, commodity, property
while they are currently property under the law (massive injustice), nonhuman animals are sentient beings. they have a subjective awareness. there is someone who values their life and doesn’t want to suffer. quit exploiting them as means to our trivial ends.
I’m reblogging this because yesterday Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed the anti-gay bill I talked about in this comic into law.
This bill includes LIFE IMPRISONMENT for gay sex. It includes LIFE IMPRISONMENT for being in a gay marriage. The directors of any NGOs (including Sexual Minorities Uganda) found guilty of “promotion of homosexuality” face SEVEN YEARS IN JAIL.
This is the real stuff, people. Many of the folks I drew in this comic were just named directly by a tabloid newspaper and are fearing an imminent witch hunt.
A lot of the blame for this falls squarely on the shoulders of one man, Scott Lively, and his global campaign of homophobia. Please go read the full comic I did last month for the Center for Constitutional Rights that explains their legal case against him.
