It seems counter-intuitive that circuses are taking majestic and docile creature out of their natural habitat and exposing them to disease. Elephants are currently on the list of endangered species and circuses are doing very little when it comes to proper care and maintenance. more often than not, the elephants are being transported in train box cars. they’ve been known to be crammed up and chained for up to 70 hours.
These large beautiful animals are developing diseases like tuberculosis and herpes. Diseases which have been linked to captivity. Only after an elephant begins to perform insufficiently do the trainers seek veterinary assistance.
It seems counter-intuitive that a women who doesn’t wish to photograph elderly people finds peace in photographing elderly animals. A photographer who decided to avoid photographing her family was able to begin a project that focused on photographing elderly animals. One must wonder why she is able to take pictures of these old feeble animals who look so close to death but she wasn’t able to take picture of the people who gave her life.
It seems counter-intuitive that there is such a concept as “forcible rape”. It also seems counter-intuitive that men are the ones determining what constitutes rape. It is any form of contact not desired by both parties involved. Without consent it is rape. Why is it that in over hundreds of years, we have made minimal progress in avoiding rape and punishing it to the fullest extent of the law.
