    I identify as a trans-species Tyrannosaurus Rex, prefer *roar* and *chomp* as my pronouns, and claim permanent Open Season on lawyers as a religious/cultural obligation.

    And if some ambulance chaser-lover has a problem with it, that's a microaggression against me!

    Sounds very Joker-esque. You're tired of human society, so you think being a lion in a cage is a better/easier life? Maybe.

    But being a lion in a (poacher-free) savannah sounds better than being a lion in a cage.

    It isn't bestiality if you identify as an animal yourself.

    Does that mean a dendrophile can get out of public indecency by saying they identify as a tree? Oh, the precedent it sets.

    Enjoy getting bullied by the heynas who steal your lunch every day. Oh and don't forget those darn rich dentists and their suicidal fun ideas. And of course there's the dry season. You don't want to be a fully maned lion under the hot sun in the hottest place on Earth, but I guess it's still more fun than the luxurious life of a zoo where you get food, water, shade and medical care everyday.

    I did say "poacher-free" regarding the dentists, but I can't argue with the others.

    But I hope you can understand the "cage vs savannah" argument.

    But if they're licensed hunters then it's technically not "poaching".

    Yeah I get the argument but just because it's a free animal it doesn't give him breaks in life and the lion's life is not a glorious fantasy.

    Hunting for food is one thing.
    Hunting for 'sport' is another. If they went out barehanded and killed a lion I would think they're bad ass (hell give the hunter a knife), but it doesn't take much to hold a high-powered rifle and shoot a defenseless animal.

    Thinking about the scene from Crocodile Dundee where Mick Dundee gets his rifle and makes it look like the Kangaroo is shooting back at the drunk poachers. :D

    Do I have to identify as a cynic before I'm allowed to laugh and make fun of this so that A) it's okay to do, and B) I'm protected by my own 'ha, can't criticize me or you're fuuuuuucked!' bubble? I'm genuinely not sure how the flippant fly-by-night SJW hashtagger "rules" work these days. Or on any given Monday morning when they always change.

    What the hell did I just read, other then how she "identifies" as a lion, isn't funny in any sense, because lions are one of the most powerful big cat in the world next to tigers and jaguars, and mocking and "identifies" to them is just wrong, and plus it's okay to be identifies as a other gender, but not okay to be identifies as a other race and species, plus she will get jail time for this act.

    It's okay for her to identify as a dangerous animal. Logical follow up would be caging and/or sedation for public security. ;]

    If she loves them so much then why is she endangering them? If she made it all the way into the enclosure she could be hurt or killed which would cause the animal who did it to be euthanized.

    Crazy selfish twit.
