***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.


Wtf

You cannot be serious?!?! #wtf #orcas #tragic #awful

I saw this!!! CAN ANYOME EXPLAIN THIS?!?!??? I AM FUCKING PISSED

Can I just say that I find it HIGHLY unlikely that people in Greenland kill “several thousands of orcas and belugas a year” considering the population of Greenland is only about 50,000 people.
I don’t like seeing cetaceans killed, but if you know anything about the environment of Greenland is that it’s flippin’ cold and whales and dolphins have high amounts of body fat that is good to eat if you have to survive in harsh conditions.
I can’t say for sure that’s why the animal was killed, but I am far more lenient about things like this when it is done for survival (as opposed to the Taiji dolphin drives which are completely unnecessary and I wish to see that stop immediately.)
I need to do more research about whaling in Greenland and see what exactly the whales are being used for, but PLEASE don’t spread lies and say that the people there kill several thousand animals per year when the human population of the entire country is only several thousand people :/

You know I never said they kill thousands of cetaceans every year. It’s more the picture I was wondering about. /:-/

FUCK. NO. Boycott Greenland. I don’t care that they’re an entire country. FUCK YOU AND YOUR ICE WASTELAND. Id love to carve them up like that.
Not really but they should die.

…wow.
You would condemn and slaughter an entire race of people because they happen to eat an animal you like? I love orcas and other whales as much as anybody but I have no right to dictate their diet when food prices in the arctic are astronomical (I would know, I live within driving distance of the arctic) and have found another way to survive. And Inuit have been doing it (whaling) for thousands of years.
If they’re killing whales and it’s truly for survival and not profit, and it’s not harming the populations, none of us has a right to fight them on it. And as much as it horrifies me to see an orca carved up like this, I am not about spew such vile hatred like you are doing.
The things you have said are truly horrible, and you should really gain some perspective on cultures and countries other than your own. It would do you some good.

Greenland has the same problem as northern Canada (Like Nunavut)… It’s difficult to transport outside goods there, and anything that is transported is extremely expensive. Hunting wildlife like orcas is ONE a way of life, and TWO less expensive. They need these animals to survive. That’s what’s different between their hunting, and American/Japanese killings of orcas and dolphins (And why the fuck do we care more about orcas and dolphins being killed, than the millions of millions of fish we ‘harvest’ every year?!).

~Srsly guys… We eat cows, they eat whales. Although aren’t orcas endangered? I think eating an endangered animal is a problem, but if they’re not, then go for it. At least they’re being used for something and not being killed for sport.

Killing ANY animal for ANY reason is not only tragic but WRONG. Taking away another life is in no way forgivable or okay. This isn’t right. This is what is wrong with the world. Thinking it’s okay to just go around taking away lives when they are not ours to take. Every animal of every species has every fucking right to be alive and free without humans having to go put them through suffering and pain simply because it’s good to eat? Or because “they need the fat” like get the fuck outta here. We live in an era were any kind of diet can be easily maintain without the meat or “fat” of any animal. This is disgraceful, it’s fucking horrific and sad and just morally wrong. Yeah go head say whatever the fuck you want, sooner or later the whole world is gonna wake up and realizing that eating, yet a lot killing any animal is in no way right or spiritual. You wanna advance as species? Quit fucking killing and eating everything that has a fucking heartbeat. 

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT ELSE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO EAT PLEASE SHOW ME ALL OF THE AWESOME FRUITS AND VEGGIES THAT CAN BE GROWN IN THE ARCTIC AT -40 DEGREESPLEASE POINT ME IN THE NEAREST DIRECTION OF AN ORGANIC HEALTH FOOD STORE IN THE ARCTIC GO ON, I’M WAITING

Seriously. I’m vegan - but I live in Florida, where I have access to plenty of fruits and vegetables and tofu and soy products It’s very sad that these animals lose their lives; yes But these people live in a climate where growing and manufacturing food from the ground is nearly impossible - let alone enough to sustain a populationAt least these whales aren’t killed for sport or some kind of cruel pissing contest among men

seaworld did not invent orcas. good luck finding someone who doesn’t know orcas exist and then suddenly discovers them when they visit seaworld for the first time 

if they only use those whales as selfie props, i can almost guarantee you they learned 0 things about orcas at their time at seaworld because 1. seaworld is not an educational place when it comes to orcas anyway, and 2. they probably didn’t care enough to listen

I learned orcas exist because of that really terrible movie ‘Orca’ (it actually scared the crap outta me) And then I watched Free Willy no less than 700 times

SRI LANKAN ORCAS: AN OVERVIEW

In General

The orcas that visit the waters of Sri Lanka are not well known and are quite mysterious; in fact, only 11 individuals have been identified. The Orca Project Sri Lanka was started in 2013 in order to better understand the orcas that frequent the island. Even though there are many unanswered questions about these whales, here’s what we do know:

  • They are likely wide-ranging, mammal-eating orcas.
  • They have been seen preying upon sperm whales, beaked whales and blue whales; the most recent and well-documented attack on sperm whales by orcas in Sri Lanka can be seen here.
  • Orcas have been seen near Mirissa, Kalpitya, and Trincomalee.

Sri Lanka is an island off the southern tip of India:

As you can see, orcas have been spotted all around the island.

Photo Identification

Because Sri Lankan orcas are so elusive and hard to find, only 11 individuals have been successfully photo-identified and cataloged. All orcas are assigned a code, and a nickname. Let’s look at the male orca OM005 “Titan”. The ‘O’ stand for orca, and the ‘M’ stand for Mirissa, the place he was first spotted. and ‘005” means he was the 5th whale to be added to the catalog. All of the whales’ ID codes start out with “O”, but the second letter depends on where they were first seen. It can either be “M” for Mirissa, “K” for Kalpitya, or “T” for Trincomalee, or “O” for other.

Here are the ID charts for all 11 cataloged whales:
