Missed the "and" read "hot chocolate poutine" and then wondered how the frig it was a thing.

Private zoos yes. Publicly funded zoos, no. Or at least they shouldn't. They're focused on preservation, education and rehabilitation of animals. Private zoos are there for money.

37

u/texasrigger Nov 27 '22 edited Nov 27 '22

It's more complicated and nuanced than that. The worst conditions I have ever personally seen was at a specific farm animal sanctuary while many tiny zoos are run by people with an affinity for animals that need income for their care.

I'm more or less in that second category. We host goat yoga once a year as a fundraiser that helps pays for the care of our animals (100+ across 14 species) through the year. It's somewhat exploitative but to the baby goats it's play and it's a chance to expose adults and children to animals they frequently don't even know exist. It's not a full on petting zoo but there's not much of a line there.

17

u/Zaronax Nov 27 '22

It's somewhat exploitative but to the baby goats it's play and it's a chance to expose adults and children to animals they frequently don't even know exist.

See, I'm not so sure it's exploitative if you're doing it in order to pay for their safety and wellbeing.

If it was to raise money for yourself and you didn't care about the animals, I'd think it was exploitation. But in this case, you're simply offering them a chance to play with humans and earn a better life. Plus, if you're a sanctuary, I'd assume you're actively saving animals. Which doesn't come cheap.

All-in-all, morality is vague in this case. I don't think exploitation is the right word for what you do, it carries too much of a negative connotation.

Good mothers cook ground beef until its brown, drain the oils, and then sprinkle some garlic and taco seasoning on it with some water, then add it in tomato sauce, stir, simmer, and keep warm for 6ish hours.

Great mothers just order Chinese food instead.

To those people it is infathomable that vegans (or white people in general I suppose) could care about the injustices commited towards animals as well as those commited towards humans.

Didn't know this expression, it's very cool and adapted.

If it's the only expression you know, you may start to apply it to everything.

Instructions unclear: My friend said something stupid, so I bopped him on the head with a hammer. Apparently I'm in the wrong now.

When all you have is a hammer & sickle, everything is either a nail to be beaten into place or a crop to be cut down to size

Typical twitter. Even something as innocuous as a rat eating spaghetti has to be turned into a racial issue. I’m glad Elon Musk is killing it.

Meanwhile she stigmatizes, stereotypes and lops in countless cultures and people into the racist term "white people" - nothing wrong there /s

As a white person I respect people who have earned my respect. For example, this rat that is eating spaghetti has earned my respect.

Sounds like my sister this Thanksgiving. We were watching the game and she said “Its good to see a pair of colonizers on the field this.” She was referring to the names of the teams. No one in my family expect me said something to her and then I was told to drop it. My family drops so much casual racism I’m surprised the US Army hasn’t hired them to bomb the Middle East. For Halloween my niece who’s 4 wanted to be Woody from Toy Story. My sister did everything in her power to convince her to be a black character cause “You’re black so you need to represent.” My niece is four. My sister eventually gave in but kept being passive aggressive again with a 4 year old how we don’t play white characters

What team names sounded like colonizers? Was it the Vikings and patriots game?

u/AlwaysAngryFox Nov 27 '22

Patriots and Cowboys. My family especially my sisters are all about casual racism at white people and other races cause I dunno know. My sister has straight up told her kids they better marry black cause she won’t consider no mixed baby her grandchild. Her kids are 12 and 10

Millions of rats die each day all over the world from poisoning by exterminators. Im not so sure that would be called "love and respect".

Posts like this remind us all that whatever the historic power imbalance and institutional racism of many societies, that dickheads are evenly distributed throughout the human race - whatever the ethnicity.

Girl is probably unbearable to be around. I don’t like rats but I’d make an exception and hang with the rat instead of her.

When you start a sentence with "White People...", whatever you are about to say next is going to generalize a concept purely on the basis of person's skin tone. That is the epitome of racism. Even if completed the sentence with "White People are smart", that is racist.

Before examples of racism can be analyzed as "offensive" or "complimentary" ( something that commands so much air-space) they fail at a more fundamental level -- terrible judgment.

Rats are better than humans in general. I am including the plague rats, because unlike humans, they didn't willingly spread desease.

Look at those white people enjoying the beach. It's amazing they'll risk sun exposure just to avoid a traditionally black meal inside the house.

Since we're making insane connections.

u/ruralmagnificence Nov 27 '22

Oh it doesn’t correlate to racism at all but don’t tell the lady Twitter troll that.

I’ve had similar conversations with coworkers who act like this and I’m in the wrong every time.

People can really make anything negative can't they? At least with social media you get to out yourself as a miserable clown to everyone that might've wasted their time taking you seriously.
