So Basically, To Break It Down To The Simplest Form “Fast Tailed” Is A Term Usually Older Black Women Use To Describe A Girl Under The Age Of 18 Who Has Had Something To Do With A Sexualness. Ex: Losing Virginity Young, Wearing Tight Clothes, Anything That They Believe A “Young Girl” Should’ve Be Doing.
This Topic Began As a Discussion On Promiscuousness And Young Women Of Color Women Began Sharing Stories Of How They Were Called Named For Events They Had No Control Over.
I Will Be Writing On It Personally But This Is An Overview. I May Not Have The COMPLETE Idea Of This #TT. But Go Look At The Hashtag On Twitter. Worth It.

Tumblr is basically like a big sleepover:
- Everyone comes together and is probably in pajamas
- People talk about stuff they wouldn’t outside of the group
- People talk about crushes, celebrities, or media they love
- Watching youtube videos
- people sobbing about random crap late at night
- there is no adult supervision
- no one sleeps
a four man anti poaching team is tasked with guarding the ol pejeta conservancy’s four remaining northern white rhinos. with only eight left, it is the world’s most endangered species. located in the laikipia district of kenya, ol pejeta conservancy is also the largest sanctuary for the black rhino. fewer than four thousand are estimated to remain.
the rise in asia’s middle class has meant that demand for rhino horn has soared, with prices on the black market exceeding that of gold and cocaine. with an increase in poaching in ol pejeta, the anti poaching team now provides twenty four hour armed protection for the rhinos, and has developed a close relationship with the animals.
poachers will track rhinos from helicopters, darting them from above and then hacking off the horn and part of the face with a chainsaw. the animals are often left to suffer and die. the rhinos seen here were found wandering in unimaginable pain, but with timely veterinary supervision remarkably survived. the rhino in the left of the fourth picture, however, had a four week old calf who, without his mother, subsequently died of dehydration.
to protect the rhinos and deter poachers, veterinarians will remove much of the animal’s horn. the rhino are anesthetized, and suffer no trauma. the horn is not like an elephant’s tusk, and will grow back in a few years.
Breaks my heart. Humans are such awful things.
These men are heroes and some of the best mankind has to offer
How do I join their cause
