"I am an Inuit seal meat eater, and my fur is ethical," wrote Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, bundled in a sealskin coat, pants and boots. She also wrote a letter to DeGeneres and posted it online.

Samsung vowed to donate $1 for every retweet of DeGeneres’ celebrity-packed Oscars selfie to a charity of her choice. She raised $1.5 million for the Humane Society of the United States, which campaigns annually against Canada’s seal hunt.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s website calls the seal hunt “one of the most atrocious and inhumane acts against animals allowed by any government.”

The Inuit have long defended the hunt as a sustainable practice, deeply rooted in Inuit culture, which helps feed people in a region plagued by hunger.

"The meat feeds families, which is important to an area where many households have identified that they face issues of food insecurity," said Sandi Vincent, who posted her own sealfie Thursday.

The pelts also come in handy in the cold northern climate and provide a needed source of income, she said. She also countered the idea of the hunt as “inhumane.”

"In Inuit culture, it is believed seals and other animals have souls and offer themselves to you. Humanely and with gratitude we accepted this gift," she said, reminiscing about catching her first seal at age 15.

BBC News - Tourist ‘upset’ at Buddha tattoo row

A British tourist is “shocked and upset” after being deported from Sri Lanka for displaying a Buddha tattoo on his arm, he says.
Antony Ratcliffe, 42, from Nottingham, was turned back at Colombo’s main airport on Friday for allegedly showing a lack of respect for Buddhism.
The authorities are tough on perceived insults to Buddhism - the religion of the island’s majority ethnic Sinhalese.
But Mr Ratcliffe says the “inoffensive” body art was meant as a tribute.
[…]
"They took my passport and held me there for an hour and a half. All the time they were bringing people in to look at my arm, and they were shaking their heads.
"I was explaining my case, pleading basically, and the chief officer just told me to ‘shut up, shut up’ and he refused to talk to me."
"I like the artwork in tattoos obviously and, due to my belief in Buddhist philosophy which I have followed for many years, I thought a quality tattoo of the Buddha was rather apt.
"It wasn’t something I took lightly or did on the spur of the moment."
Eventually, Mr Ratcliffe was allowed to continue his journey to Kuala Lumpur, but faced further questioning when he landed.
"The whole experience has been a shock - it has been upsetting and a waste of my time. I’m not taking it further, but when I saw they had accused me of speaking disrespectfully about Buddhism, I had to put my side of the story", he said.

'i mean, i still don't really give a shit whether or not they were offended by my imperialist tattoo, i just can't decide if i'm more insulted that they wouldn't let me into their country to 'appreciate' the rest of their heritage, or that they think they can tell me what i don't know about buddhism'.
fucks sake, man.  #whitegirlsinheaddresses

White people have the privilege to dabble in different “philosophies” and “aesthetics” and really don’t like it when they get called on their shit when they their appropriative tattoos offend people who have practiced a religion or culture for centuries/millennia/time immemorial.

Angel Haze: “Some rappers are gay, get over it.”
I just over heard my mom saying that she isn't going to give tenure to this Muslim woman because of her "turban" (incorrect term, I know) and how she doesn't want that contaminating her workplace and if any of her colleagues ask her she's just gonna say she has a "bad feeling". I feel disgusted by what she said and I think it's totally unfair. Both she and my father think that all religion and in particular Islam is poison. Can u give me any points or "comebacks" that I could say? I feel sick

GUESS WHAT, WEIRDOS? A-Camp, that’s what! In four short weeks, we’ll all be up on that mountain having the time of our queer lives, but until then, we’ll have to just keep dancing on our own. Patience is a virtue. No time like the present except the future is more exciting in this case. Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. HERE’S SOME MUSIC TO PUMP YOU UP FOR CAMP.
