These Beautiful Bridges Are Just For Animals
by Jess Zimmerman
If we’re going to keep putting roads in the middle of their habitats, animals are sometimes going to need to cross the road. But it’s better for everyone involved if they don’t have to push a button and wait for the light to change, because they don’t have thumbs and nine times out of 10 they’ll just careen into the side of your car. Which is why some highways have overpasses built specifically for animals like deer, elk, and grizzly bears.
Nobody teaches moose pedestrian etiquette like “look both ways,” but they figure out pretty quickly that crossing the terrifying asphalt river is safer if you take the beautiful grassy bridge. That’s just my guess at a moose’s internal life, but there’s data too: In Banff National Park in Canada, animals have used the six overpasses and 35 underpasses more than 200,000 times since monitoring began 1996.

this is some bullshit right here and I’m disappointed to see my friends reblogging it
Privilege politics, which has some validity, is used as a silencing technique and amounts to an argumentum ad hominem on the internet.
Check your premises kitten-catten, before you automatically assume that saying “check your privilege” is a legitimate counterargument in most dialogues.

Feminists are arguing that women shouldn’t pay higher health insurance rates, despite the fact that women as a group do use health insurance far more and thus represent a greater cost to insure.
These same feminists are, at the same time, demanding vastly expanded preventative care measures paid for by insurance which doesn’t make sense either because that’s not how insurance works, all under the slogan “being a woman isn’t a pre-existing condition.”
However, they also believe that women should all be given free birth control by their health insurance providers, even in cases where it’s not being used to treat a medical condition like vaginismus, polycystic ovarian syndrome, severe PMS or acne. Their justification (and complaint) is that Viagra is covered by insurance, and that these two things are relatively commensurate. In case people aren’t aware, Viagra is used to treat “erectile dysfunction,” a medical condition.
According to feminists, having a healthy, functioning uterus is a medical condition.
