Tiger Triplets

A Bengal tiger cub plays with its mother.

Although they were born a year ago, a zoo in Mexico is celebrating the first public appearance of three adorable Bengal tiger cubs.

Bengal tigers are white cats with blue eyes and pink noses. They are extremely rare and hardly ever spotted in the wild. And, according to experts, for every 10,000 Bengal tiger births, only one emerges white.

These triplets have a white tiger father and a mother who comes from white tiger parents. Of the three, two are female and one is male.

The cubs follow a strict diet, which includes their mother’s milk and 22 pounds of mutton twice a week, as well as fresh poultry.

There are currently only about 250 white tigers in captivity.

But I wanted to argue against the female extremists, who's favorite phrase is "It's because I'm a woman, isn't it?". No, its not because of that. But a lot of women still feel entitled to the same things men are more equipped with. I think you're missing who I am applying this to. Is it wrong to find this amusing? There certainly are female extremist, claiming that they're feminists. Males do this as well.  Not that there's anything wrong with this, but the title "feminist" gives the impression that you are for women's rights. Funny,  when you hear of masculinists... people aren't always as accepting. I am a girl, but I'm not a feminist. We should be for equal rights, not just the protection of those of one gender. (Sorry! I trailed off a bit... :/ )
