Warning: lots of ignorance in one post

So one of my favorite teachers I had in high school shared this link here. I was appalled. The fact that somebody could even believe this shit. So I used my big-girl voice and told them wassup.

1) These animal still shouldn’t be held in captivity. For most of them, there is nothing wrong with them, they were captured just for entertainment.
2) The sources given are not all credible. I can find someone with a PhD to tell you that the Earth is
flat but that doesn’t mean it’s accurate. The sources are not cited correctly in any way. Of course somebody who works for Sea World is going to say the accusations are wrong. The fifth source only says “financial public records”. Public records from where? Of what? When? If I put that on a source for any of my papers to turn in, I would not pass.
3) Sea World is a business. Of course they care about profit. Profit is a huge deal.
4) As for the dorsal fin argument, the cause isn’t actually known. There are only theories. Possible explanations for this are: alterations in water balance caused by the stresses of captivity dietary changes, lowered blood pressure due to reduced activity patterns, or overheating of the collagen brought on by greater exposure of the fin to the ambient air. And even according to SeaWorld’s website, another reason for the fin to bend may be the greater amount of time that captive whales spend at the surface, where the fin is not supported by water pressure.

Disregarding the suffering of the animals based on five silly things from a silly webpage like awesomeocean.com is a little ridiculous to me.

Never apologize for burning too brightly or collapsing into yourself every night. That is how galaxies are made.

Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I’m glad for that.

The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.

You know what, I can over think everything and find a million ways to doubt myself. I’ve just come to realize that, we’re only here briefly. And while I’m here, I wanna allow myself joy. So fuck it.
