The company caved to the demands of right-wing morons earlier this week and removed children's pride clothing to prevent more incidents like this from happening.

In 1996, an unidentified 8-year-old boy slipped away from his mother, climbed over a barrier, and fell into the Gorilla Enclosure. Due to the 20 ft fall, the boy broke his hand and suffered a deep laceration to his face.— Fascinating (@fasc1nate) May 25, 2023
Seven gorillas inhabited the enclosure. Gorillas are known… pic.twitter.com/P1XJdsvhEF
Gorillas are truly majestic beasts.

Steven Spohn perfectly sums up chronic pain
The most misunderstood thing about chronic pain is the "hurt" is not the main issue.— Steven Spohn (Spawn) (@stevenspohn) May 22, 2023
Chronic pain is a thief. It takes your time by making you focus on getting to the next relief point. It steals your joy as it's hard to to be present when all you can think about is the pain.
Steve has a great way with words.
One more thing...
Today is the third anniversary of the murder of George Floyd, and America remains divided. The well-being of our fellow citizens does not appear to be a priority for many people these days, and it is just sad to think that this horrific event of police brutality has led to damn near no meaningful criminal justice reform. Despite Biden's efforts just last year, even the president had this to say today:
But we know that implementing real and lasting change at the state and local levels requires Congress to act. I urge Congress to enact meaningful police reform and send it to my desk. I will sign it. I will continue to do everything in my power to fight for police accountability in Congress, and I remain willing to work with Republicans and Democrats alike on genuine solutions.
Just in the past year, in my home state of Ohio, we have seen police officers defend the rights of Proud Boys attempting to disrupt drag shows in Columbus, and eight Akron police officers fatally shoot Jayland Walker more than 40 times with zero indictments.
The United States of America can and should do better than this, but this anniversary will likely come and go for years to come without meaningful positive changes in the country's criminal justice system.
