Why I Support #DicksOutForHarambe

The movement may sound humorous, but the underlying message is no joke

Why I Support #DicksOutForHarambe
Abubele Green

I had always loved animals. For me, they were always a source of mystery and wisdom. That’s why I was devastated when I heard about the death of Harambe, the Western Lowland gorilla shot dead after a child entered his enclosure. It has been a long time since the incident, and yet I often imagine I can feel Harambe’s firm touch, caressing my bulge, beginning to unzip my fly and urging me to do what I’ve wanted to do for far too long: whip my dick out to preserve the legacy of the unjustly killed gorilla!

I'm not the only one who gets it!

That’s right. I’m part of a movement gaining traction on the net. Many know us as #DicksOutForHarambe. Our goal is to bring attention to the killing of this majestic creature. This is particularly disturbing, seeing as it would have been more proper to shoot the child for entering the enclosure and disturbing the gorilla. Many say they were fond of Harambe, but I understood him like no one else. Harambe and I would walk the streets of Cincinnati, hand in hand, becoming lost in the endless buildings and the darkness of each other’s’ eyes. Not literally, of course, because Harambe wasn’t allowed out of the enclosure – but I had many dreams about the animal, and I’m certain Harambe had dreams about me as well.

Alright, maybe that last part was a bit much! Regarding the movement itself, however: while they use humor to make their point, their claims are quite valid. Of course Harambe shouldn’t have been shot for something that was the fault of negligent parents! If making jokes on the internet is the best way to bring attention to the issue, go for it! I’ve always considered humor the best way to make your point – this movement proves how true that is! We’re finally having discussions about the value of human and animal life. We’re making Harambe’s legacy mean something!

So, while the rest of you are sitting there reading articles about Harambe on the internet, I’ll be out there with my dick out, raising awareness of real injustices like the mistreatment of animals.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
