Our revolution must extend to the Otters (and beyond)

Below you will see a cute picture of an otter, one of my favorite animals.  But then, I read the caption, which I made bigger for you below that so you can read in horror what I read.   

I can no longer say that otters are my favorite animals.  Only the female otters.   It says "This otter, identified as female - her scarred face is an indicator of mating practices--"   What????   There's domestic violence among otters?   he has to scratch and chew her face as a part of 'mating practices'?  How exactly does that lead to more baby otters?  If she doesn't like you, then get off, you jerk otter.   people always excuse men for being violent and raping by saying they're just expressing their "animal nature."  Well if that's true, then we need to expand our feminist revolution to the animals, because at least half the animals are girls, and I don't think they're down with the "it's animal nature" argument.

So listen up Mr. Otter, next time you try to mate with a cute little female otter, you better check first and make sure she's not sporting a praying mantis tattoo!

What is wrong with this picture?

When a dying kid's wish is to kill

A nonprofit helps terminally ill children with the unusual -- and to some, alarming -- dream of hunting an animal

If you're dying wish is to murder an animal, then your death is not tragic; it's too late!! I'm sorry you have cancer, but leave the animals alone. What if I had cancer, and my dying wish was to shoot a kid who's dying wish is to shoot an animal? Where's my foundation? According to this article, the Make-A-Wish Foundation will no longer arrange for these hunting trips, because an animal rights activist got to them, which implies that they used to do it! WTF? I'm gonna start a foundation to help ill children with the unusual, and to some, alarming dreams that I personally approve of. My Manifesto will be coming out soon, and frankly, I can use a small army of kamikazi children to take out anyone (adults mostly) who get in my way.

My missing sisters (aka the war on girls)

There's a new book out called

Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys Over Girls, and the Consequences of a World Full of Men

by Mara Hvistendah.
In nature, 105 boys are born for every 100 girls. This ratio is biologically ironclad. Between 104 and 106 is the normal range, and that's as far as the natural window goes. Any other number is the result of unnatural events.
Yet today in India there are 112 boys born for every 100 girls. In China, the number is 121—though plenty of Chinese towns are over the 150 mark. China's and India's populations are mammoth enough that their outlying sex ratios have skewed the global average to a biologically impossible 107. But the imbalance is not only in Asia. Azerbaijan stands at 115, Georgia at 118 and Armenia at 120. 
I think they are going to regret this later on.   LIke on prom night!
