I never even knew this and I’ve fed bread to ducks multiple times! D: Definitely reblog this so everyone knows!
POOR DUCKS OMG.
I PROMISE TO NEVER EVER FEED YOU BREAD EVER.
Is this real life right now? I’ve been killing duckies all my life without knowing?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT IS MY LIFE!!!!!!
Wow, if this is a true fact than that should be widely known. I see people throwing out leftover bread to the ducks in the park on a weekly basis.
One extra PSA considering birdfeeding! If you feed peanuts to birds during the winter in, remove any leftovers as soon as the breeding season begins! If the parents feed peanuts to their chicks, they will get stuffed and starve because they won’t signal their parents for food anymore while becoming malnourished.
The more you know!
“Being a woman is not a means to humiliate and punish anyone”
After a policeman in the Iranian Kurdish town of Marivan paraded an accused criminal in traditional Kurdish women’s clothes in the streets in order to humiliate him, women marched in the city condemning the use of women’s attire as a kind of humiliation.
In support, an internet campaign of Kurdish and other Iranian men has sprung up showing men wearing Kurdish women’s clothes and messages and support. For example, this message says,”wearing Kurdish women’s clothes is not only not an insult, it is instead a great honor for us,” and goes on to describe how women stand side by side with men in every part of society and during wartime.

think of positive comments as blocks
it takes several to build you up and only one careless swipe to knock it all over
please keep this in mind the next time you want to needlessly tear someone down
And when they are constantly taken down, it rots the foundation, effectively ruining the chances of it being built back up.
but that doesn’t mean that project is hopeless, not if you have friends who love you.
