A retelling of Avatar: The Last Airbender where Azula realized she could use sex as a weapon.
Oh shit I broke it….
Or was it broken all along and I fooled you into thinking it worked.
I don’t understand people who devote their free time to making fun of things that other people believe in.
oh cool because I don’t understand you either.
Part 1: Stumbling in the dark
When I played my first MMO I found myself arguing for the first time with the part of myself that loves gaming and hates people (it comes to about 80% of the whole). Usually if I had a player two it was someone I had chosen, invited over to play in my house, so…

Sometimes I wonder what it’d be like to turn to a life of crime. Probably the same.

The horses are treated like absolute garbage, are you freaking kidding me!? I’ve seen first hand those horses working in 90+ degree weather, dodging traffic, almost being hit by trucks and cars and breathing in exhaust all day. Should we also talk about how many have died from cars hitting them!? Manhattan is the absolute worst place for a horse to be forced to drag people around. This is bullshit that they haven’t shut this down yet and if you think not you’re extremely ignorant.
Ugh can someone with more time address this.
In the last 30 years, less then 10 horses have been seriously injured or have died from accidents. IN THIRTY YEARS. The horses work every other day, no longer then 9 hours. They are parked with constant access to water, and carry buckets of feed with them. They are given a mandated vacation of a minimum of 5 weeks a year (most are upwards of 6 months). They are seen no less then 4 times a year by a vet, regular farrier work every 6 to 8 weeks, gauranteed retirement. They have a fire sprinkler above every stall, open windows with fans on every level of every carriage house BUILT FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF HOUSING CARRIAGE HORSES.
Enough already with the idiocy and blatant misinformation. Enough. You may think this is just a battle about the fluffy cute ponies you assume you know about, but you don’t. You don’t have a clue. They have jobs, they provide for themselves, they are the partners of men and women who earn their living and are able to give them homes. If this ban goes through you are not only putting these working, healthy, well cared for horses out of a job, but the people they work with too.
Seriously. Stop it.
In addition to what you already mentioned, putting horses and men out of a job, they are also sentencing the horses to a not so certain future. Many of them will end up in auctions, purchased by the kill buyer, shipped thousands of miles to a different country, crammed together with no food and water for the trip, slaughtered for dog food, and that fate can’t be better then working as a carriage horse. Or what do they actually believe that each and every one of those horses will be set free on some fairy-tale pasture? Really?
No. The unconstitutional matter of the situation is this. NYClass is attempting to push through legislation that essentially “seizes” the horses from their already caring owners. From the homes where they are well fed, well cared for, and well loved, and PLACING them in homes that PETA and NYClass have organized.
Apparently the constitution in this country is moot.
Lets be very clear however, that if this ban goes through, the carriage drivers and owners have made it VERY clear that NYClass and PETA won’t get their hands on a single, solitary, well loved, FAMILY OWNED one of those horses. Not a one.
Given PETA’s HORRIBLE TRACK RECORD for finding unwanted pets homes, I’d say the animals would almost be better OFF going to auction. At least at auction they have a slim chance of not being shot up with “blue solution” and illegally thrown away like that rotten organization did to almost every single one of the other animals it got its fucking hands on.
NYC carriage horses are always impeccably cared for in my experience. Give me a working horse in a city over a backyard pony left to rot any day. Like has been said above - if these horses lose their jobs theyre going to slaughter.
