The Oregon Zoo has a history of feeding their predators raw carcasses, which is pretty awesome - and unique for American zoos. Others who have tried this method of feeding have received so much backlash from visitors, who seem to think that it’s too ‘violent’ or gross to watch, that they had to cease doing it. 

We like to think we’re a bit more progressive in the Pacific Northwest, but even so, I heard a few people complaining that it was “Barbaric!” and “Disgusting!”, saying that “This is entirely inappropriate for children!” and things of that ilk, even though there were HUGE placards outside the exhibits warning, “RAW FEEDING IN PROGRESS; VIEW AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION!” 

As for the kids - I sat by the viewing window for at least half an hour, watching crowds of several dozen youngsters walk past and watch the lions as they ate. I heard comments such as, “Wow! Coool!” and “Ew, you can see it’s spine!” but not a single child looked at the scene before them with disgust and wanted to immediately leave. They were fascinated. They watched these animals with wonder and excitement, and put up a fuss when their parents got grossed-out and wanted to continue on before they did. 

Thing is, raw feeding is not only healthy and natural for captive predators, it’s also mentally stimulating for them, and greatly educational for visitors who aren’t too squeamish or sheltered to understand it.

"See how he chews with his head to the side?" one father told his young son,. "He’s got teeth in the back of his mouth that work like scissors cutting paper." 

"Why don’t I have teeth like that?" the boy asked his dad, making a chomping motion with his own jaws. His dad laughed, and told him, "Well, it’s because you’re not a meat-eater like they are. You eat plants, too. They don’t." 

That’s so awesome, it’s a shame so many people would rather have a sanitized image of nature. 

I’ve not been to many zoos but at the smaller wildlife parks I’ve been too it’s common practice to chuck in whole dead animals for the predators and there certainly aren’t any warning signs. A few weeks ago I was at a park that hung whole rabbit carcasses from the top of the enclosure for the lynx to leap up and grab, it was fantastic!

"Sanitized image of nature" is why I hate Disney "documentaries" so much.  So, so much.

I love when zoos get to feed their predators actual carcasses.  Many members of the public do find it upsetting, however, which limits the frequency and popularity of this practice in North American zoos.  At my place of work, I have heard disgusted squeals and many iterations of “I can’t watch this!” as I feed thawed, dead mice to birds.  I have had guests pull me aside upset that there was “a poor animal in the eagle enclosure” and demand I save it (it is always the bird’s intended meal, a dead, thawed domestic rat or rabbit).  I heard a guest ask another keeper why the zoo wouldn’t switch the Harpy Eagle over to a vegetarian diet, since feeding her meat was “gross and wrong.”

I always think it’s a little weird that the people so concerned for the welfare of the (humanely euthanized) rodent prey we feed the birds don’t have the same concern for the well being of the bird, who benefits from being able to feed from a whole carcass instead of processed predator diet.  These guests also don’t seem to be upset by the dead fish, dead chicks, or live insects we feed to the animals.

WHY THIS WOMAN WOULD RATHER READ HARRY POTTER EROTICA THAN WATCH PORN

When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.” 

Watch her full monologue here.

I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.

And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.

I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.

Reblebbing for Rosalarian’s comment and to say this: I was actually embarrassed about my Smut Peddler submission for a while, because it featured two people who had backstories and were enthusiastic about sex. Because sex within context rather than BANGIN OUTA NOWHERE is a “feminine preference” and therefore “not real porn” and ugh fuck that mentality, fuck all of it forever
