I'm a Senior at Oakland University Majoring in Biology and Minoring in Psychology with a Pre-Med Concentration. I'm looking forward to Medical School, and I'm obsessed with good science, good books, and good art.
Biomedical illustrations on human skin. Amazingly gruesome.
R.I.P. Barbara Park, author of the beloved “Junie B. Jones” books. Park has passed away at 66 after a long battle with ovarian cancer. With irreverent, slangy titles such as “Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus” or “Junie B., First Grader: Cheater Pants,” the six-year-old’s adventures are instantly relatable to kids, and became classics for all of us who grew up with them.
If you’re going to hunt and plan on using what you get for food, that’s perfectly alright with me. Like the people that are hunting for deer and use the meat and pelt and whatnot for productive things afterwards, that’s great. It’s the people that only do it for fun that disturb the hell out of…
Yoooooo I really hate it tho when people hunt animals and the taxidermy them to make them ‘trophies’ or whatever like god damn if you’re gonna kill them could you at least let them be dead with dignity you sadistic creep
And even when you eat the meat I’m still weirded out cause like okay if you have no other way of getting food okay I’ll give you that I mean that’s fair but if you can get to a store or buy food and you choose to kill like that’s a little messed up son the fuck did that deer do to you
you know in general hunters just make me nervous
I could not hunt unless I had to - I can’t get into “Look at that beautiful animal - let’s kill it!” but at the same time, if a hunter is following the guidelines (at least in Michigan, anyway) they’re only shooting the number of deer allowed and no fawns are killed (and generally, they shoot bucks because I don’t know why, antlers, I guess). They’re even trying to make antler restrictions now so younger deer aren’t killed during hunting season.
Also, unlike normal meat one buys at the grocery store, this animal definitely was able to walk around and run and live without being confined in a cage or fed growth hormones or something. Even the “free range” label doesn’t ensure the animal actually had access to what most people would consider decent living space. In a weird way, it might even be more “ethical” to kill the animals yourself.
Or be a vegetarian, I guess.
