Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is pleased to announce the birth of four critically endangered Red Wolf pups! Today, just 100 Red Wolves roam their native habitats in eastern North Carolina, and nearly 200 Red Wolves are maintained in captive breeding facilities throughout the United States. Because of this, the birth of four pups – two male and two female - represents a welcome increase in the overall scarce population.

If that doesn’t horrify you, then I don’t know what would.
I was at the University of Sydney for my brother’s graduation yesterday (congratulations Brendan!) and in the midst of my official duties as our family photographer I got extremely distracted by a corgi frolicking on the lawn. Resistance was futile!! This scholarly little guy is Taffy :) ain’t he cute?
They call you a “sjw” because they don’t want to acknowledge you for what you are: a person talking about your lived experience. They don’t WANT trans people to talk about transphobia, they don’t WANT disbaled people to talk about ableism, they don’t WANT Jews to talk about antisemitism, they don’t WANT PoC to talk about racism. They call you a “sjw” to dismiss you and convince themselves that they’re right and you don’t know your own experiences.
