Anonymous said: when did u realise u were french??
I didn’t suspect anything for the six first years of my life.
First thing I started noticing was how people wouldn’t stop speaking french around me like it was the only language they knew… Why would they do this? Did they want to sound sophisticated or something?? It pissed me off so much. And there was this croissant thing too!! I just kept on seeing them everywhere like it was normal breakfast food???
But I remember the day I really freaked out and realised what I was. It was on a sunday. When I woke up in the morning earlier than usual because I heard my dad coming home. He likes going for walks in the early morning. That’s his thing. What a weirdo. So, I went out of my room and proceeded to ask him where he’d been.
And he looked at me. He looked at me and -I KID YOU NOT- he just told me he’d went out to buy a baguette for breakfast. A baguette. Here he was, the holy procreator of nerds, a baguette under one arm, a smile on his face. Like he was fucking proud of himself or something. He couldn’t see what he’d done.
Suddenly everything made sense in my head. The blue, white and red flag I was seeing everywhere. The general grumpiness of everyone. The huge metal tower that looked a lot like the Eiffel Tower I kept on seeing on postcards in shops. The complaining. The obsession with wine. The weird smelly cheeses.
"Dad" I said in a shaky voice "are you… are we…"
How no one managed to speak english properly. How my grandparents had once eaten snails in front of me. The awful dubbing of the tv shows. The azerty keyboards. The crême brûlée.
"Are we french?" I asked, tears in my eyes.
He could have denied it. He could have changed the subject. He could have laughed and maybe -maybe- everything would have just gone back to normal.
"Am I french?" I said again.
He could have lied. But he didn’t. He answered in a slow, deep voice :
I personnally never feel more French than when I am in a foreign country. I’m always bitching about my country, yet last time I spent a month in England I really missed France and being around people speaking my language.
I’ve always wanted to go do this: meditating with Tiger Cubs at Tiger Temple in Thailand .
Why? Literally of what benefit is this to anyone except the selfish desires of a tourist to have a cool story or photo? This is not beneficial to tigers. Tiger Temple is a cruel, despicable place that treats apex predators like commodities. That gives substandard care for a profit and does absolutely NOTHING for tigers as a whole. It’s not a sanctuary, it’s not a rescue, it’s a for profit tourist trap and it should not be on ANY reasonable person’s bucket list.
I just want to pet a tiger cub with my chances of getting mauled at a 0. Plus if some people find peace by connecting with animals then let them, as long as the animals are properly cared for, not beaten or abused, or starved or treated unfairly or in any danger. plus what are tigers supposed to get? A check? I thought the tigers would get a new friend and snuggle partner.
Did you even read what I wrote? They aren’t treated well. They are hit, they are kept in poor cages, they are chained to the ground, they are overbred, they are fed a terrible diet. Tigers do not need friends or snuggle partners. They need proper care and to be able to live under the most natural conditions possible in captivity. They need to be respected at a distance, not interacting with people directly in a way that endangers them and us. That’s what they are supposed to get.
These people are finding “peace” at the expense of animals. So no, I won’t “let them” free of criticism.
Also, in no universe can you pet a conscious tiger without the risk of getting mauled. Js.
What happened to tumblr; place to look at cats, procrastinate, and respect peoples opinions and educate them in a respectful manner? And hey I’m sure there are other places where you can find tranquility with animals that aren’t harmed this one place can’t be the ONLY place in the world, also if a dog can raise a cow I can cuddle a tiger
No. Don’t do the “what’s wrong with tumblr!” excuse, it’s dismissive and diverting. Real people are on tumblr, with real opinions and educations on topics, it’s not this separate entity free of criticism. Tiger Temple is a place of animal abuse. And I will not respect the opinions of people that support animal abuse. Interacting directly with big cats and other lethal animals is unethical and irresponsible. You want to interact with an animal one on one, choose one that can’t kill you or wont be punished for doing so, or choose an actual domestic animal.

And here are some sources on cub petting:
- Big Cat Rescue details why cub petting is inhumane and leads to many cub mortalities.
- Believe it or not, petting cubs can contribute to canned hunts.
- Video by Big Cat Rescue talking about the cruelty of cub petting while showing legitimate cases of cruelty and a painful look at the lives they live.
- Lions, Tigers, and Bears Sanctuary on cub petting
It isn’t anyone’s right to pet a tiger cub. Certified zoological staff at reputable facilities can interact with tiger cubs if their health is at stake, and they always pull all contact when the cubs are old enough to take care of themselves, because that is the responsible thing to do. That is the only time I’m okay with people touching big cat cubs outside of veterinary procedures.
Please understand that this is abuse, not a spiritual experience or connection, and I am trying to bring awareness to that.
bigcatawareness is amazing and intelligent. FOLLOW THEM!
I will never understand peoples fantasy with meeting captured exploited tigers. The industry is horrific. the truth is all in the links above.
This is rad
we need a superhero like one of these ladies
maybe another hawkeye??
i didn’t even notice until halfway down the post when i read the “being the teacher with the robot leg” sign that i realized everyone is missing a limb. Biomedical Engineers are really outdoing themselves and it’s both fantastic and sometimes even glamorous.
