When children attend schools that place a greater value on discipline and security than on knowledge and intellectual development, they are attending prep schools for prison.
Every student should put down in some form or other his findings. All any man can hope to do is to add his fragment to the whole. No man can be final, but he can record his progress, and whatever he records is so much done in the thrashing out of the whole thing. What he leaves is so much for others to use as stones to step on or stones to avoid.
Why Declawing is a Bad Idea (An 1-minute guide)
Right up there with taildocking in terms of cruelty and being unnecessary.
if you declaw your cat, I want to pull out your fingernails with pliers and see how you fucking like it. there are just so many alternatives that there’s absolutely no excuse for it.
Along with if they end up lost outdoors they have no chance of survival unless they end up with another family
we got one of my cats from a shelter that declawed all of their cats for some reason and she has all of the symptoms of the first image it explains so much :(
ppl think their damn furniture is more important than a cats life
just train the damn thing. it’s literally the easiest things ever
“I am called anti-Semitic if I criticize Zionism, the movement that called for, and actively continues to implement, the ethnic cleansing of one people in order to allow for the creation of a “Jewish” state. The Jewish National Land Fund laws keep land ownership for the exclusive use of Jews. That, I am told, is not racist. But anyone who criticizes Israel as an exclusionary apartheid state is racist, or guilty of hijacking “important issues,” because a discussion of the victimization of Palestinians is always beside the point, must always be subordinate to other issues. Can my feminist friends tell me why anti-Semitism is a prominent feminist issue, but a discussion of anti-Palestinian racism is not, as Betty Friedan tried to explain to Egyptian feminist Nawal Saadawi at the United Nations International Conference on women in Nairobi, urging her: “Please do not bring up Palestine in your speech. This is a women’s conference, not a political conference.””

Oh look another white feminist hero is an asshole.
