The TRUE face of a bull in the bullfighting ring and a tender moment between the bull and an anti-bullfighting activist.
“The bull is not an aggressive animal, and the reason he is angry and attempts to charge at the matador whilst in the bullring is mainly because he has been horrendously abused for the previous two days. In fact, what spectators see is not a normal, healthy bull, but a weakened, half-blinded and mentally destroyed version, whose chances of harming his tormentors is virtually nil. The bull has wet newspapers stuffed into his ears; vaseline is rubbed into his eyes to blur his vision; cotton is stuffed up his nostrils to cut off his respiration and a needle is stuck into his genitals. Also, a strong caustic solution is rubbed onto his legs which throws him off balance. This also keeps him from lying down on the ground. In addition to this, drugs are administered to pep him up or slow him down, and strong laxatives are added to his feed to further incapacitate him. He is kept in a dark box for a couple of days before he faces the ring: the purpose of this is to disorientate him. When he is let out of the box, he runs desperately towards the light at the end of the tunnel. He thinks that at last his suffering is over and he is being set free — instead, he runs into the bullring to face his killers and a jeering mob.”

Lord have mercy.
this is so terrible. omg.
The horses used are horses that have no value to the market and are usually put down after 3-4 runs. They also have wet newspaper in their ears and they are drugged. The ‘protective’ gear the horses wear is there just to cover up any wounds, it doesn’t protect them.
They use a knife to stab them and it paralyses them not kill them. This means they are conscious when their tails, ears and testicles are cut off, and often also when he is dragged out by the horns. Usually bulls die from suffocation or drowning in their own blood.

Oh shut up and go run for Congress you fucking baby.
Literally millions of people.
Um. So I’m probably one of the few folks who doesn’t think this is adorable. At all.
I think it’s fucking scary how this little boy keeps pushing himself on her after she CLEARLY doesn’t want to be bothered with his ass.
And the adult behind the camera doesn’t intervene at all because it’s ‘cute.’
And how analogous it is to when grown ass men don’t take fucking no for an answer, no matter how much we push and shove and say no.
This is not cute. This is an absolute disregard of this little girl’s boundaries.
In the very bottom left gif you can see he’s smiling/laughing. Like this is some kind of game.
I would bet money that the person filming this is laughing and encouraging him.
This is how we teach boys not to respect women’s spaces.
"Rejection". Because we are supposed to empathize with the male child. We are supposed to emphasize with being pushed away. We are supposed to see him falling, not her being pressed upon, not her being trapped, not her being observed and laughed at by an adult she’s supposed to trust. We aren’t supposed to feel being touched and cornered, how she looks at the camera but no one cares. A cute little kid stumbling up to the object of his desire, not the girl child being pressed up upon, not the powerlessness but the blue overalls and pink dress, male and female but mostly male, and here she can overpower him but he keeps coming back and there is no escape but we aren’t supposed to feel what she feels, because she isn’t supposed to feel what she feels. It’s cute. Her rejection is what matters, her response. Not his actions. "Rejection," because girl children are somehow still the instigators, even when they are being harassed.
my question is if men are unable to control themselves in the presence of women why the hell are they allowed to control entire nations
This poor pregnant pup is set to be euthanised (by heartstick, which is very painful and terrifying) this week and looks so scared and miserable. She needs money donated into her fund (she only has $15 so far) for a rescue to pull her from this VERY high kill shelter where the dog can THEN be adopted from. Sadly pit bull mixes in Georgia can only be adopted from a rescue centre and if this dog receives her funds which help with vet bills and transport then a rescue will be willing to rescue her!

Even $1 isn’t too little! We cannot let this poor pregnant baby die in such a horrific way!
