Here are some wonderful facts about Sea World’s orcas!
The average lifespan of wild orcas ranges from 30-50 years, although some females can easily make it past 80 (a wild orca named J2 or ‘Granny’ is 103 this year!). The lifespan of a Sea World orca is around 25 years, the median age being 9. But at least they put on a good show!
Don’t worry, collapsed dorsal fins are a common condition, although in the wild only sick or injured orcas have collapsed dorsal fins. All of Sea World’s males and some females have it, it makes them look unique! 
The size of Sea World’s tanks compared to an orca is about the same as a human to a bathtub. Lot’s of room to stretch and move!
Wild orcas swim 100+ miles a day, they would have to swim around their tank 1,400+ times a day to achieve that. But that seems like a lot of work, and you may see the animals hanging out near the surface of the water or on the bottoms of their tanks for hours. That’s a lot more relaxing than swimming all those miles!
Sea World gives their orcas a Valium-like drug to stop the whales from acting aggressively towards each other and to numb their minds from their vastly uninteresting concrete tanks. Buying a ticket to Sea World is an excellent way to help them pay for these drugs that they pump their animals full with!
Many captive orcas show abnormal behaviors like head bobbing, chewing on concrete, and self mutilation by banging their heads into the side of the tank. Obviously just temper-tantrums! Silly things.
In the wild, there has been only one orca attack. Bad orca! While in captivity, there have been over 100 attacks and 4 deaths. These animals just need more training, it couldn’t possibly be related to their confinement! 
Food is used as reinforcement for tricks. Do a trick, get your dinner. Don’t want to do a trick? I guess you don’t eat tonight you stubborn thing! 
See? Sea World isn’t as bad as people make it out to be! Oh, one more fact: for every $1,000,000 Sea World makes, about $600 goes into conservation efforts (about $0.5 a ticket). I’m so glad they care about conservation of the ocean! Amazing work!

If you haven’t realized it yet, this post is 100% sarcastic. It should be obvious, but not everyone understands sarcasm…

Not at all my blog style but I’m VERY passionate about this and will never support places like Seaworld, Aquariums or zoos.

When your child has SUICIDAL THOUGHTS, wants to DIE, HATES who they are, PERSISTENTLY INSISTS that they are a different gender, often tries to COVER-UP or CREATE body parts, or CRIES themselves to sleep, it is NOT a phase and you NEED to do something. Gender dysphoria is a SERIOUS

And I liked the way they described it, and some of the other comments they made.

Imagine you have a favourite undershirt. It fits well, it keeps you warm, most of the time, it just does its thing and you don’t even notice it’s there. You look good, you feel comfortable, life is good.

Imagine…

actually speaking of trans issues if anyone has any tips about buying pants for dfabs with huge hips that’d be great too

if i look up ftm fashion i just get 500 pages about binding tips and if i look up ftm pants i just get 500 pages about shoving socks into your crotch to look like a dick

i have 106cm hips and i’m going pants shopping tomorrow what d’you got for me tumblr

coming from a dfab person with kinda big hips, but wearing cargo pants with loads of pockets tends to help with my curves, so really anything that makes dmab people’s hips look big will help make your hips look less huge

So this story isn’t really new or recent, but I feel like it needed to be told.

Last year, I came out as transgender to my parents (female to male)…I was extremely nervous, scared terrified. I knew for a fact that they wouldn’t kick me out or disown me, but I didn’t know exactly how they would…

I wish my mum was like that. At first she was all “haha go get some firewood son” but now we tend to fight a lot more (especially about me wanting a haircut) and if it wasn’t for a scholarship I got that’s non transferable she’d put me in an all girls school to “fix me”
