68 Israelis have been murdered - 3 of which were civilians, and 65 were Israeli soldiers.

^ Just so you get a feel of the disproportion.

“32,975” —

That’s the number of arrest warrants issued in Ferguson last year for nonviolent crimes. Compare that to the population of 21,135 people.

Ferguson is making bank off its own citizens

A clash between two tigers in the Londolozi private game reserve in Pretoria South Africa. And yes, you read that right—tigers in Africa. Their fight began over territory, and one might be left wondering how much space these two actually have there.

The two males fought for 45 minutes, at one point it seemed as if one was dead only to spring back into the brawl after his opponent let his guard down. The younger male won, and both walked away injured, but alive. Both survived.

I remember reading somewhere that this place is really poorly run but I can’t remember details. bigcatawareness care to weigh in?

I have a few posts on why this place stinks right here, but in short these people have a reserve in South Africa where they are breeding tigers(generic tigers and white tigers I might add) to try and “repopulate” them.  Like they think they can either create a tiger population in Africa or ship them off to their natural habitats and they’ll survive.  

But these are captive raised tigers and the above is allowed to happen with animals in their care, and the owner has actually shot one of his cats(He was trying to give off a warning shot supposedly and it “ricocheted” off a rock and hit the cat….right).   This place is completely terrible, nothing good about it.

Behind the Scenes of “All About That Bass” +

How are skinny girls supposed to feel love when your song is about loving only fat bodies?

I’m sorry, but how are fat girls supposed to feel when every advertisement, be it on television or in a magazine, when nearly every movie, shows only thin women? I am completely against body shaming, but the fact remains that there is very little positive representation for bigger girls. Thin women are considered the norm and are far more accepted and you see them everywhere you look in the media. So please, don’t take this the wrong way, but please just let me have a song that makes me, for once, feel good about my body.

ive also noticed that people always focus on one particular line of this song which apparently makes it “skinny shaming”

but nobody ever acknowledges the following lines?

the main theme of the song is giving love to larger women because larger women are so commonly shamed for their bodies, ignored by the media and generally given less love and acceptance than thinner women, but the song in its entirety is a message that all women are beautiful. People are failing to acknowledge that

“Here’s to the security guards who maybe had a degree in another land. Here’s to the manicurist who had to leave her family to come here, painting the nails, scrubbing the feet of strangers. Here’s to the janitors who don’t even fucking understand English yet work hard despite it all. Here’s to the fast food workers who work hard to see their family smile. Here’s to the laundry man at the Marriott who told me with the sparkle in his eyes how he was an engineer in Peru. Here’s to the bus driver, the Turkish Sufi who almost danced when I quoted Rumi. Here’s to the harvesters who live in fear of being deported for coming here to open the road for their future generation. Here’s to the taxi drivers from Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt and India who gossip amongst themselves. Here is to them waking up at 4am, calling home to hear the voices of their loved ones. Here is to their children, to the children who despite it all become artists, writers, teachers, doctors, lawyers, activists and rebels. Here’s to Western Union and Money Gram. For never forgetting home. Here’s to their children who carry the heartbeats of their motherland and even in sleep, speak with pride about their fathers. Keep on.” — Ijeoma Umebinyuo - Immigrants.
