look at these things
they’re like tiny
but instead of breathing fire they squeak and cuddle
and they have funny ears and noses
I mean really
bats are amazing
This post is so fucking important to me
im gonna go with the various diseases they carry.
^^ hey how about shut the fuck up? You wanna insult bats you picked a bad day. Which is any fucking day.
Bats make up a 1/4 of all mammal species. Pretty cool right? Except that many of them are endangered due to poaching, exotic pet trade, non-zoonotic (which means you can’t get them you massive baby) diseases like the white nose fungus, culls, and of course environmental decimation. Wanna know why that’s shitty? Bats are pollinators, just like bees. Without bats we lose a lot of our food and the entire ecosystem gets wrecked. Pollinators are some of the most important members of our ecosystem because without them we lose primary producers (plants) killing off primary consumers (herbivores), which then kills off secondary and tertiary consumers (carnivores), many of which are already endangered like many big cats or certain bears or birds.
Bat shooting or hunting is legal and encouraged in many places in the world with one of the larger ones receiving attention being Australia with their flying fox culls. Flying foxes are pollinators AND ENDANGERED.
I’m guessing you’re referring to rabies? I bet you’re believing the lie that 50% of these precious babies have the disease. Well listen up bub because only about 2% of bats have the disease. 2 frikken percent.
Another thing about bat diseases: they aren’t an animal that comes into contact with humans unless you work directly with bats. You’re not just gonna find one crawling on you and they don’t get into your trash or food. “Guano” or bat poop, is where people usually contract any kind of sickness from bats and it’s not because they’re bats, it’s because it’s POOP. COMING IN CONTACT WITH POOP ISN’T A GOOD PLAN. Otherwise they carry no more diseases than your average mammal.
So you wanna contribute to the false and negative stigmatization that’s killing our bats and therefore our ecosystem? Or do you wanna not talk out of your asshole next time and maybe spend 3 seconds on google?
i want dogs to be allowed at more places and i want children under 6 to not be
Anonymous said: What's the reason you don't like 50 shades?
horrible aggressive misogyny and the romanticization of domestic violence and sexual torture aren’t some of my favorite things and young girls picking up that book or watching that movie being left wondering if that’s what relationships are supposed to be REALLY makes me angry.
this man takes a young woman who is less powerful, less experienced and not entirely confident or educated about the area of life he’s leading her into and then starts doing horrible sexual things to her, he removes her boundaries and normalizes the violence against her
50 shades of grey reinforces and perpetuates the disgusting lie that women LIKE and WANT to be hurt and that you can heal a broken man if you just love him enough and do all the things he wants you to do bc eventually he won’t want to hurt you anymore
he goes from a sexually violent predator to prince charming and it’s gross and offensive and nobody should support it no matter how cute the guy playing him is.
