Richard Gutierrez... you're NEXT!

What can anyone possibly learn from Dolphinariums and Animal Theme Parks?  Punta ka dun, picture-picture, magre-reklamo na mabaho ang amoy, magrereklamo na walang parking, magre-reklamo na masikip ang CR, magrereklamo sa hindi masarap na pagkain, at papayamanin ang mga abusadong hampas-lupa na may-ari.

Dolphinarium and animal theme park operators claim that a visit to their establishment is educational.  Describe “educational”: you’ll see a lot of (poorly lit) posters about the animals, watch a video or two about the animals on their natural habitat (on mute), and listen to a (barely audible) tour guide talk about the wonders of the animal kingdom (who has a memorized script and won’t take any questions from the audience until after the tour – at which point they suddenly disapper).

We fondly refer to our immediate environment as the “concrete jungle”.  Natural jungles don’t have dolphinariums or animal theme parks.  Concrete jungles do – it’s called a “MALL”.  Think about it, of all the things mentioned in the previous two paragraphs, is there any difference?

A dolphinarium or an animal theme park is bad business.  High costs, low profit margin, and the t(h)reat of eco-terrorism (wink-wink).

Dolphin Show is PROSTITUTION. So, FUCK DOLPHIN SHOWS!

“Prostitution, when unmotivated by economic need, might well be defined as a species of psychological addiction, built on self-hatred through repetitions of the act of sale by which a whore is defined.”

KATE MILLETT, Sexual Politics

“To revisit the past transgression from early psychosocial stages in an attempt to resolve an Oedipus Complex and consequential castration anxiety.”
