Happy birthday to this best boy!
You’ve been a constant figure for many many years, yet this is one of the very few decent photos we have together where we’re not making silly faces or caught mid-laughter. Goes to show that it’s never a dull moment with you and here’s to many more of those great times. So, so much love for you, @naddryshah.
People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously
This shit pisses me off
How could you be so hateful to that poor puppy who loves you
And to the people who think owning a puppy is all snuggles and rainbows, it’s not. It’s a lot of hard work. You’re training a little baby to be a functioning adult dog. You’re teaching them to not mess in the house, to not chew on things they shouldn’t, to not be the absolute terror they are when they are puppies. Your puppy needs constant attention until it’s about a year old. Otherwise you get dogs that you see on animal planet’s “craziest pet.” Please realize that baby animals are a lot of work and you need to be willing to put in the time and effort to effectively raise them. There’s a reason people suggest buying a puppy before having a child with someone.
I’m actually biting back tears here. Fuck people who do this.
Having a dog when you’re a full blown adult with nobody to pawn the responsibility off to is fucking hard work, and give it a good think to ensure you can commit the years, time, and money. If not, don’t bring home a puppy/dog/pet of any kind.

“May I ask why you felt little Tiffany deserved to die?”
I’m pretty sure this is why Tumblr gave us photosets.
To this day, I still have absolutely no idea if he actually did the right thing by shooting little Tiffany. His story was very convincing…
I totally bought that he was right.
I always though this was about not demonizing people based on how they look, instead focussing on what they do.
THAT’S RIGHT AGENT J

"I’m tired of talking about feminism to men.
I’m tired of explaining to men that the feminist movement will, in fact, benefit them as well as women. I’m tired of trying to hawk gender equality like I’m some kind of car salesman showing off a shiny new sedan, explaining all of its bells and whistles. I’m tired of smiling through a thousand thoughtless microaggressions, tired of providing countless pieces of evidence, tired of being questioned on every. Single. Damn. Thing.I’m tired of proving that microaggressions exist, tired of proving that I’m unfairly questioned and asked for proof. For a movement that’s centered around the advancement and empowerment of women, why do I feel like I’m supposed to spend so damn much of my time carefully considering how what I say and do will be taken by men?
I’m tired of men who insert themselves into feminist spaces with claims of hurt feelings. I’m tired of men who somehow manage to make every issue about them. I’m tired of men like the one who recently stopped by a friend’s Facebook thread in order to call feminism “c*nty”, then lecture the women involved for being too “hostile” in their responses to him. I’m tired of men telling me that my understanding of feminism and rape culture are wrong, as if these aren’t things that I have studied intensely. I’m tired of men who claim to be feminist allies, then abuse that position to their own advantage. I’m so fucking exhausted by the fact that I know that I will have to, at some point in this piece, mention that I understand that not all men are like that. I will have to note that some men are good allies. And all of those things are true! And all of you good allies get cookies! But honestly,I’m tired of handing out cookies to people just because they’re decent fucking human beings."
You want to get kids out of foster care and into good, loving homes? I’ve got a simple solution to your problem.
Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)
I used to work with kids in state’s custody who were unable to be placed in foster/adoptive homes yet because of their behavior. Let me tell you…none of those kids gave a single fuck about whether their future parents were gay or straight. They just wanted a family. The kids don’t care. A mom and dad, two moms, one dad…
These were the ‘undesirable’ kids that a previous commenter mentioned. They were all older and had severe behavioral issues. Some were lower functioning. People were not fighting over these kids.
And on a side note, when I have kids one day, those will be the kids that I have. And I am so passionate about that, that I would never get involved with a woman who wasn’t completely on board with that as well.
