I like cute things and think too much. I like X-Files and Twin Peaks. Pretty pictures, trauma/survivor stuff, assorted else.

critiques of socialist states based on the idea of a “cult of personality” are fascinating to me in that it manages to ignore the fact the united states desecrated a sacred mountain to carve four of their presidents faces into it, as well as creating a six-star general rank just so George Washington would always be the highest ranked general in the u.s. armed forces.

Baby Bird Scam

The bird store I go to helps rescue birds, they also sell babies. That sucks.

Why breeding companion birds for profit is bad:
They are sustaining a mess that I (and other rescue peeps) have decided to devote my life to cleaning up.

"Why don’t you just stop?"
Because the guilt I’d endure by inaction would eat me alive.

Selling baby birds is a cruel scam. Some even sell them un-weened, many succumb to death.
Baby birds are all snuggle-butts b/c they NEED a parent to love. This adorable behavior lures people into thinking they’ll always be that way. I experienced this with my first parrot.

There’s a chance they’ll kinda wanna be your buddy, but there’s also a very likely chance they’ll become hormonal devil-birds who can’t help behave like wild animals… because they are. Parrots are not domesticated animals (with the exception of the English Budgie, which, because of this, has a shortened life span which is also cruel).

That’s just one reason of many that you’ll probably hear me rant about.

Oh, and baby birds will live 10-60 years.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I have a cockatiel that I bought as a baby because I didn’t know any better (even though I wouldn’t give him up for the world now), but any future parrots I get WILL be adopted, please if you’re thinking about getting a parrot, look for a shelter!! Rescue a birdie in need, you’ll learn a ton from the people there about the REAL nature of adult birds, instead of getting sold something cute that will turn into a nightmare and destroy your house and bite the shit out of you because you raised it wrong (hella easy to do if you get a baby, trust me, I have an avian vet as a grandma and still almost went totally wrong).

There is almost nothing more sad and pathetic than the paranoid male entitlement issues the folks in the Men’s Rights Moment spew all over the internet.

Lucy Hicks Anderson was a pioneer in the fight for marriage equality. She spent nearly sixty years living as a woman, doing domestic work, and working as a madam. During the last decade of her life, she made history by fighting for the legal right to be herself with the man she loved.

After marrying her second husband, soldier Reuben Anderson, in Oxnard, California, in 1944, local authorities discovered that she was assigned male at birth. The couple was charged with perjury for marrying despite their both being legally male, resulting in ten years of probation. Standing up to the charges against her, Anderson said, “I defy any doctor in the world to prove that I am not a woman. I have lived, dressed, acted just what I am, a woman.” Years later, Anderson and her husband were charged again, this time with fraud after she received federal money reserved for military spouses. Both went to prison and were banned from Oxnard upon their release.

Lucy Hicks Anderson spent the remainder of her life in Los Angeles until her death in 1954, at age 68, leaving behind a legacy of authenticity and determination in the face of unjust laws.

I’m not feminine because I want to pass or because I am communicating my subordinate status or whatever, I’m feminine because that’s what I like. You never see folks making excuses as to why others are masculine like it’s the default state of being.

liberal feminism is sort of interesting in how much jargon and many buzz words it can pack any analysis of anything and cheerfully come up with the conclusion “but I guess some woman might find it powerful so who are we to judge! feminism is about having choices!”

like, you’ve got to admire how that analysis stretches from media consumption to CEOs
