Anonymous: Have you seen the video of the inuit girl from canada who essentially defends seal clubbing because it is culturally important and also for the weather? i think it's important to consider that side too

The problem with cultural “traditions” is when these so-called “values” stomp on the rights or welfare of others. 

In 2009, a legislation in Afghanistan was approved which “legalized the rape of a wife by her husband” by allowing men to force sexual intercourse on their spouse. It was considered “a piece of sharia law, or Islamic law.”

I mean, rape is really bad and stuff… but it’s culturally important so maybe we should be more understanding about it & consider their side too.

No values or traditions deserve to remain in place just because they have been for hundreds/thousands of years if they infringe on the rights or welfare of others. That includes seal hunting. 

there’s a huge!!!! difference between rape and killing animals as a source of food and material. I don’t think you understand how expensive everything is in northern canada - food items have a 50-300% mark-up. taking away the right to hunt animals like seals and whales (the endangered of which were endangered by white hunting practices) is really unethical.

Except… this message was in reference to a post I made about Canada’s commercialized seal hunt, which is severely barbaric & inhumane.

So I mean… you can continue whining about how taking away the right to hunt is “unethical” while conveniently ignoring ethics when: competitive, commercial pressures make speed more important than humane killing; seal hunting involves unacceptably high wounding rates; the current Marine Mammal Regulations do not set out requirements for humane killing of seals; effective monitoring and enforcement is impossible; and endemic disregard for the Regulations indicates the Department of Fisheries and Oceans is unwilling - and unable - to enforce any rules that might be in place. 

There’s a difference between hunting for survival (ie: the San people) and commercialized hunting, which is what this person was referring to by mentioning “seal clubbing.”

Reading comprehension.

Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.
