Fucking with the Patriarchy:

Only speak to men about their children. If they have none, press them about their plans to start a family. Judge them if they don’t want one. Make them feel like shit for wanting a life of their own. How dare they? They’re made to reproduce, how can they be so selfish?

How could a collection of letters manage to be so stupid?

I’ve always wanted to go do this: meditating with Tiger Cubs at Tiger Temple in Thailand .

Why? Literally of what benefit is this to anyone except the selfish desires of a tourist to have a cool story or photo? This is not beneficial to tigers. Tiger Temple is a cruel, despicable place that treats apex predators like commodities. That gives substandard care for a profit and does absolutely NOTHING for tigers as a whole. It’s not a sanctuary, it’s not a rescue, it’s a for profit tourist trap and it should not be on ANY reasonable person’s bucket list.

I just want to pet a tiger cub with my chances of getting mauled at a 0.  Plus if some people find peace by connecting with animals then let them, as long as the animals are properly cared for, not beaten or abused, or starved or treated unfairly or in any danger. plus what are tigers supposed to get? A check? I thought the tigers would get a new friend and snuggle partner. 

Did you even read what I wrote?  They aren’t treated well.  They are hit, they are kept in poor cages, they are chained to the ground, they are overbred, they are fed a terrible diet.  Tigers do not need friends or snuggle partners.  They need proper care and to be able to live under the most natural conditions possible in captivity.  They need to be respected at a distance, not interacting with people directly in a way that endangers them and us.  That’s what they are supposed to get.
These people are finding “peace” at the expense of animals.  So no, I won’t “let them” free of criticism.  
Also, in no universe can you pet a conscious tiger without the risk of getting mauled.  Js.

What happened to tumblr; place to look at cats, procrastinate, and respect peoples opinions and educate them in a respectful manner? And hey I’m sure there are other places where you can find tranquility with animals that aren’t harmed this one place can’t be the ONLY place in the world, also if a dog can raise a cow I can cuddle a tiger

No.  Don’t do the “what’s wrong with tumblr!” excuse, it’s dismissive and diverting.  Real people are on tumblr, with real opinions and educations on topics, it’s not this separate entity free of criticism.  Tiger Temple is a place of animal abuse.  And I will not respect the opinions of people that support animal abuse. Interacting directly with big cats and other lethal animals is unethical and irresponsible.  You want to interact with an animal one on one, choose one that can’t kill you or wont be punished for doing so, or choose an actual domestic animal.

It isn’t anyone’s right to pet a tiger cub.  Certified zoological staff at reputable facilities can interact with tiger cubs if their health is at stake, and they always pull all contact when the cubs are old enough to take care of themselves, because that is the responsible thing to do.  That is the only time I’m okay with people touching big cat cubs outside of veterinary procedures.
Please understand that this is abuse, not a spiritual experience or connection, and I am trying to bring awareness to that.

"If a dog can raise a cow I can cuddle a tiger."What kind of fucking logic is that? Even if a dog has actually raised a cow, that does not correlate to whether or not you should interact with an animal that is an instinctual hunter and capable of inflicting severe injury. You’re willing to risk injury/death in order to “cuddle a tiger”, and you clearly don’t care that the tigers are treated like shit. These people are banking on the hopes that people like you exist; apathetic enough to not care about the conditions the tigers are kept in, and stupid enough to put both yourself and the tigers at risk for a “cuddle”.

Do you miss the sex with boys?

Answer:

kaeandlucy:

OH MY GOSH - OF COURSE WE DO.  We crave all the peen - that’s why we’re in a committed, life long relationship with ANOTHER GIRL.  Because every lesbian secretly craves a man in the relationship, duh.  We all must just be highly confused and torn about our sexuality - trying to rebel against the norm which is why we date someone of the same sex.  OF COURSE WE MISS ALL THE SEX WITH BOYS - All the sex we never had.

kaelyn and lucy what a stupid question not wanting sex with men is the entire point of being a lesbian idiot

rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

Uh, no. Not quite. As much as I’d love to give Rosalind Franklin complete credit for the discovery of the double helix, it would be inaccurate. That’s not to say that her work on the discovery of the double helix is not given enough attention, because it’s not, and her work was crucial. However, there were multiple scientists working on this problem at once, all from different fields. Franklin worked solely using x-ray crystallography, which studied the 3-dimensional shape of DNA, however it was presented as 2-dimensional. There were also two forms of the DNA she was studying: a crystalline form, A, and a wet form, B. The B form definitely showed a helical shape to the DNA, however the A form did not. She was also trying to solve the Patterson function of the A form, which was also not helical. Obviously, this would be confusing and difficult for anyone to try to ascertain what form DNA actually took.

Watson and Crick were looking at the problem completely differently, and for the most part just built models based on Linus Pauling’s work. While they did not give Franklin’s work proper shrift (mainly because neither of the understood crystallography, as admitted by Watson himself), eventually Watson and Crick proposed a helical structure that was validated by Franklin’s crystallography work. 

So, was her work stolen? No. While she was incredibly close to determining the structure, Watson and Crick proposed their model before she could reach a conclusion.

Was her work important? Yes, very much so. The Watson and Crick model of the double helix, which is what is accepted as scientific fact, was accepted because Franklin was able to validate that their model fit what she found in her crystallography work.

TL;DR: Rosalind Franklin did not discover the correct helical form first, however there is no doubt that her hard work had a huge impact on the discovery and validation of the accepted form of DNA.

As far as “She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.”? Here’s something to think about: scientists don’t do work to become famous, they do work because they want answers to the world’s questions. Gaining recognition for their work is just a side perk. Do I believe that more people should know about Franklin’s work? Yes. She was an intelligent and ruthless researcher, having to put up with so much bullshit because of her gender, but she never let that stop her. She is an incredible role model for female scientists to this day. But don’t assume that her work is invalidated simply because she’s not as well known as Watson and Crick.
