There are songs out there that are greatly underrated like, for example, this one.
You Don’t Own Me sung by Lesley Gore (when she was 17), written by John Madara & Dave White, two males. Not only was this song written years before the second wave of women’s rights & their wanting of social freedom started, but it was the very first of many songs that would be written in response to such wants that already should’ve been rights to women.
This song is an example of threatened emancipation from common stereotypes of the devoted housewife who cleaned, cared for children, shopped, and got dinners down and ready for “their men”. The lyrics became an inspiration for younger women and played a major factor in the rise of the second wave of the feminist movement.
Along with Betty Friedan’s book, The Feminine Mystique (which was published shortly before this song’s release), this song can be considered one of the many artistic works that helped begin the Women’s Liberation Movement. This song is one of the very first in which a woman demands her independence from her man.
John Madara said of the song in the Forgotten Hits newsletter: “Our original intent was to write a song with a woman telling a man off: ‘Don’t tell me what to do, don’t tell me what to say.’ Though we didn’t realize it at the time that it would become a woman’s anthem, it definitely was our intention to have a woman make a statement.”
We not only need to stop stereotypical comments from being said and stop our younger generations of males to believing these disgusting comments (such as that women belong in the kitchen, getting asked if we’re on our period by a male when we seem upset/mad, etc.), but we need to stop all social/cultural/etc. stereotypes of women from existing that make us look like over emotional women who don’t have the power to defend ourselves. We need to work on improving our rights of sexuality, wanting a family or not, and most especially (in my opinion) reproductive & official legal inequalities and our rights to be paid the same and given the same opportunities as men in our workplace.
The majority of women/girl here are young teens to twenty year olds and maybe a little older. We have the ability to make a change if we just try our hardest, do as much as possible, and encourage other women/girls our age.
To show how great the song did at it’s time, it reached No. 2 on the Billboard Pop Singles Chart in the US right behind The Beatles’ I Want To Hold Your Hand.


Remember when I made my first equal rights rant about one of my favourite songs?I honestly thought that at least a few more people would be interested in one of the first songs about wanting to be free to do what a woman wants. In the sixties.

The Beatles arrived in Houston, Texas at 2AM with their chartered aeroplane surrounded with teenage fans at Houston International Airport.

While in Houston, The Beatles stayed at the Sheraton-Lincoln Hotel. It was there that the band held a press conference, which was sponsored by local radio station KILT. They would then be taken, in an armoured van, to the venue of the Sam Houston Coliseum.

1. Those tigers look thin.

2. Zoos are fucking stupid.

3. Capturing wild animals and using them for human entertainment is a super shitty thing to do.

4. This is not cool.

This is abuse and horrible.  Zoos are prisons.

Some zoos only take old animals to where they are given an easy life. Their maintenance is funded by people coming into the zoo.

Those tigers are not thin.

"Zoos are fucking stupid" wow such science you sold me

They weren’t captured for this purpose, they probably weren’t captured at all, it’s called rescuing. 

This is cool.

This is not abuse, it’s actually exercise if you think about it.

Zoos are not prisons. Zoos allow us to rescue animals, research them, and protect them from hunters and the dangers that we, as humans, impose on them.

I’m so done with all the shit about zoos on my fucking dash. 

Zoos literally save animals every day so why don’t you do your freaking research.

This comment is perfect^

Animals come to zoos as a result of 

  • being born captive
  • getting injured in the wild and rescued to live a healthy life in captivity
  • being rescued from black market dealers, private collectors, or the like who decide that they can no longer care for the animals or who had been illegally keeping the animals
  • being in a breeding program to increase their numbers because the animal is endangered in the wild

If you knew anything about tigers at all, you’d know that they are endangered in the wild due to poaching and hunting. It is of utmost importance that their numbers increase, or they will go extinct within the next fifty years. I don’t know what zoo this is so I don’t know their reputation, but the tigers look healthy, and this tug-of-war is good for them because some animals get stressed in zoos when they are bored. This isn’t solely to entertain zoo guests, it is to give the tigers something fun to do.

Zoos do not snatch animals from the wild without a good reason. If you want to protest animal captivity, go to SeaWorld and protest the orcas being kept there, they are far too large to belong in such cramped spaces and they are solely kept for entertainment.

Thank you and good day.

ALSO ITS NOT LIKE THEY’RE FORCING THE TIGERS TO GRAB THE ROPE, THE TIGER WANTS TO PLAY

Tigers play just like domestic cats play with each other, this is for the educational benefit of the visitors and the enrichment benefit of the tigers. Also word to the comment above. Tigers are endangered to the point that they cannot repopulate themselves in the wild, they need the help of captive institutions like zoos, where they live carefree lives free of stress and can breed and birth without fear that other predators and mating competitors will come along and eat their cubs.

Furthermore, these tigers are NOT thin. In fact, one of the ones in the large group looks borderline obese. People who know nothing about animals need to stop talking about animals.

Boosting the shit out of this because I’m so damn tired of whiney morons (who probably never get outside) bitching about animal’s rights when they really have no fucking clue.

DO YOUR GODDAMN HOMEWORK.

Posted photos I had set to post for this Wednesday.

But you know what? I don’t care anymore. You’ve got a serious problem if you continue to get pissed at a teenager for supposedly taking “your” photos and reposting them.

I know I don’t do that and that’s all that matters.
