my kids were telling me about a commercial they saw where a guy had a snake on his foot and he kicked it up into the air and ran or something like that... and i got a bit offended by that idea.. you know, it make me angey the double standard human being have about most of our fellow earthlings.
if this were a puppy, EVERYONE would flip out. but since its a 'yucky' snake, its ok to abuse it? its ok to fling it across the room because most of society thinks they are gross?
im sorry, but thats fucked up, plain and simple. if ANY animal has rights, ALL animals have right. cute OR yucky. why do bats and snakes and bugs and mice get 'exterminated' as pests? yet stray cats get sheltered and pampered.
im not suggesting cats deserve less treatment. im only demonstrating the way we as people prejudice against certain creatures in this world. i think it sucks. all creatures deserve our care and protection. not just the 'cute' ones
