"URGENT APPEAL FOR INFORMATION
The ACRES Wildlife Rescue Team (Singapore) rescued a female black tufted marmoset (Callithrix penicillata) who was found lying on a grass patch at 47 Marine Crescent last Friday.
Black tufted marmoset are endemic to Brazil and it is illegal to keep them as pets in Singapore. They live in rainforests, usually residing high in the trees, under the canopy and they rarely have been observed at or near ground level.
The marmoset was severely emaciated and upon close veterinary examination by the vets at Singapore Zoo, the animal was found to be suffering from severe metabolic bone disease and had to be humanely euthanized.
ACRES is appealing to the public for information and is offering a $10,000 reward leading to the successful prosecution of the individual who had illegally kept this marmoset as a pet. If you have any information with regard to this, please contact us by calling the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Hotline (9783 7782).
The Illegal wildlife trade is growing and there is an urgent need to curb this trade.
We must send out a strong message that Singapore is committed and serious in combating this illegal trade and ensure that individuals involved in this trade are not only caught but given effective deterrent sentences.”

Your logic is unwanted here.

Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.
You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.
As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.
Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.
My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.
You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.
So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.
