In October, after the holidays, trade winds whirl about rivers of rubbish where turtles close in searching for food, but only to find a slow death in these deadly traps.
A new species strongly settles down in the ocean: plastic.
An ephemeral shelter for a few, but a sad end for the majority.
The first gif breaks my heart…a sea turtle missing its right flipper.
I’m not saying that it lost its flipper because of the trash in the sea. It could have been a predator who chomped off its flipper. What I’m saying is that turtle may possibly have lost its flipper due to a plastic or waste material that got tangled and bound its flipper. It doesn’t take rocket science to find out how.
Plants and animals are made up of body tissues. Tissues are made up of cells. Cells need vital nutrients and oxygen for repair and replenishment. For animals, blood contains these nutrients which is transported all over the body through the blood vessels. When a blood vessel is blocked or something prevents it to function properly, the tissues/organs supplied by those vessels get damaged/become infected/die because of the lack of oxygen and nutrients that it needs. So imagine how a plastic material or a rope gets stuck around that turtle’s flipper. It may have gotten stuck for a while that it eventually bound the flipper tighter as the turtle grew. As the material bounds the flipper more and more tight, it then disrupts the blood flow towards that flipper causing for it to be damaged, no longer functional and may eventually have caused it to fall off.
Remember (if you’ve seen the movie) how he grew weaker, walk slower, breathe harder? Why? Because of the plastic rings. It was choking him. How did he get it? When he was swimming in the water.
It is never right to dispose plastic and other materials into the water and even in land. As cliche as it sounds, it destroys nature. It destroys other living beings in this planet both in land, sea and air. It destroys all of us.

At first I though this was a joke
Don’t ignore this Tumblr
Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.
This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim.
Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.
One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.
The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.
This is very sad. I see no equality in this. That last line, “They only see males as perpetrators.” hurt me more than anything.
