I was just showing my fella what TRF is all about and I noticed an image with a live elephant.

Is that correct? TRF has a live elephant on the grounds and it is involved in some of the performances?

You're making assumptions about our reasons for boycotting.

Please don't do that.

The horses are a completely different situation for a million reasons, and even the camels aren't a blocking issue.

So, again, just please don't assume what our reasoning is and go off the deep end. We're reasonable about it and accept that others don't see it that same we do. We just don't patronise operations of that sort.

I'm not quite sure why y'all are getting so worked up about a dozen or so people not coming - it means less waiting in line and more seats available, right? :D

You could see it that way. XD But it sounds kind of like you're limiting yourself.

And really what I said is just how a lot of extremists people react to animal rights. The crazy kind that throw red paint on you if you wear fur. ;D They scare me.

And you're assuming I'm getting worked up. I'm not. I'm surprised but to each their own. :) I don't even remember the elephants when I'm there so this whole issue doesn't even really effect me.

But for the record: Why ARE you boycotting the elephants? Just curious. :O

Oh, I'm not boycotting the elephants. I'm boycotting places that have elephants in certain situations.

I'm cool with limiting myself. There are a billion other things I can do beyond Ren Fests, so I'll just have more time and dosh to those things :)

Your verbiage is what made it sound like you were upset, and I'm glad to know you aren't.

Oh. XD I'm sorry. I tend to say things sarcastically with amusement.. but it tends to not work so well on the internet. ;) It's so easy to read things wrong.

Oh, I'm not boycotting the elephants. I'm boycotting places that have elephants in certain situations.

Well, that's what I meant to ask. Sorry, I worded it wrong. (I'm doped up on sinus medicine weee~) I meant to ask why you were boycotting the place because of the elephants. Just trying to understand the cause you believe in. :33
