"It is humane to euthanase an animal. It is not humane to kill an animal in the face of alternatives, and then have the balls to label the act as euthanasia. Killing shelters and pounds use the "˜E’word throughout their dialogue.
It plants a seed. It creates an illusion that whoever killed the animal had the right to do so. It also redirects your thinking down a pathway that does not include probing and questioning.”
I’ve felt that crushing disappointment when confronted with the words ‘sold out’. I understand how reckless one can be in those five minutes between the thrill of thinking you’ll get to see your favourite band and the bitter blow that you can kiss goodbye any notion of seeing your heroes in the flesh. Of course the secondary ticket sites understand these five minutes better than anybody, which is why they will ensure that their allocated tickets are on sale the minute they are made available to the public (and, tellingly in some cases, days before they are made available for public on sale).
One of the most common biphobic narratives is that the penis is what counts. A woman who has sex with men is really straight, even if she also fucks women; a man who has sex with men is really gay, even if he also fucks women. If a man fucks a man, even once, he is forever corrupted from the heights of heterosexual masculinity.
