As a gay person on ATS I often get upset and angry when I read the anti-gay rights threads, I get vocal and hot under the collar and voice my opinion
but it blows over very quickly!
This morning watching the news I found myself in tears watching a poor animal, half of it's face removed by vicious killers, with a chainsaw, for it's
horn, IT'S HORN, to be ground down and used in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine),most effective for.....? NOTHING!! Powdered Rhino Horn is as about
effective in curing disease, Erectile Dysfunction, as Powdered Human Nails The Rhino was then left to die slowly and painfully, you could hear its
groans of pain, a cry for help, for release, it just wanted the pain to stop, it wanted to die! "Luckily" and I use the word VERY loosely, for it
South African Game Rangers came across it and put it out of it's misery!
Now, I am angry, I am violently angry! If I had to choose between supporting gay rights and choosing to save the Rhino I would choose Rhino! This
majestic animal is being wiped out by callous uncaring people without a thought!
What also has shocked me is the reaction that my Rhino threads, this is my fifth, get here on ATS! Hardly a response! Doesn't anyone care about these
animals anymore? Is really all just about me, me, me? Have we forgotten so quickly what really matters? Humans will one day, hopefully, disappear off
the face of the planet before we have killed off every last animal and they will once again reign supreme!
