Is It Just Me, or is the Media Treating Animals More & More Like People?

22 Oct

A natural result of there being too many sentimental single young women working in the media.

Literate Comments

From KCCI:

Three family pets die in house fire 

“Authorities said Sunday that a family escaped safely from flames that heavily damaged a Mount Pleasant house. However, a dog, a pet lizard and a turtle died in the fire, which is being investigated.”

Are they going to start telling us how many hogs & cattle were slaughtered, how many dogs & cats were euthanized, and how many research animals were killed at labs that day? At the National Animal Disease Center in Ames they do medical research on dogs. The dogs come in and they don’t go out. I am not thrilled about animals dying either, but animals are not people. Far from it.

Another thing I have noticed are “save the animals” ads on TV that look and sound just like the “save the children” ads that were/are on.

    That picture shows a lot of tasty potential.

    I agree – it’s the feminization – overdone emotionalism and sentimentalism that young women bring to the table.

    There’s an underlying sickness of affluence in our culture. Rather than treating animals as civilizing cohorts, they are treated as superior, or at the very least, equal beings. Animals are more valued than humans, and this is a measure of man’s respect for himself. Or lack thereof.

      Yeah, they are “part of the family” dontcha know! When their owners come home they are exhorted to “come give mommy a kiss” and such.

      The coming collapse will put an end to that bullshit right quick. PITArds, none of whom have ever been in survival mode and who can thus afford at he moment to indulge their infantile philosophic fantasty, will turn omnivore very quickly after a day or two of food deprivation. Indeed, I VERY much look forward to seeing all sorts of sheltered, infantile fucktards become quickly disabused of their progressivism once the real world intrudes in rather nasty fashion. It will be fascinating to taily the results of the “sink” versus “swim” groups

      Agreed. Sad comment on our society, these days.

    I’ve noticed this for some time. It’s just a variation of the feministy ‘crazy cat lady’ women of today. After they drove away all the ‘Good Men’ in their twenties (so that they could “find themselves” by eagerly becoming the willing f*ck-toys and cum dumpsters for every player, dirtbag, and “romantic, “exciting” Bad Boy who crossed their path), no man was ever “good enough” for them in their thirties.
    Now these peri/post-menopausal women treat their pets as if they were their children (this psychotic behavior extends into their fifties and sixties). You can spot them if you know what to look for, especially if the back of their car has a sticker or two which mentions anything to do with “granddogs”, etc.

      As an old lady currently sharing my house with five cats (only one of which is mine; the other four are strays my children rescued when they were still living with me but neglected to take with them when they grew up and moved out), I suppose I qualify for crazy-cat-lady status. I am also married (going on forty years now) to a very good man. And although I love my cats, I positively adore my grandson, and I never mistake any of the non-human members of my extended family for human beings, or treat them as such. I also have not been a feminazi for nearly half a century (I flirted briefly with feminism in my misspent youth, but then I grew up). All of which is only to say that one can be a crazy cat lady without completely losing one’s marbles.

        You only have five cats, not thirty. 😉

        Is that the threshold for craziness?

        Maybe. Best not get any more cats. 😉

        I do my best not to — I haven’t intentionally adopted a cat in sixteen years! But whenever one of my kids brought home a mangy starving stray, I never had the heart to tell them they couldn’t keep it.

        Sure, sure; blame your kids! 😉

        I kid. Not being a father, I don’t have personal experience of my own of the ability of children to wear down their parents’ resistance – though I have oft observed it in others. 🙂

      I guess crazy cat ladies are, after all, simply aged versions of once-young women who were overly sentimental about animals.

    There’s also the fact that, with people having fewer children, or having them later in life, they are substituting pets for children, and overvaluing the pets, ascribing to them the same importance people formerly attributed to their children.

      Oh, for sure, that’s definitely a factor. (Drives me nuts to see people pushing dogs in prams, or cradling them in blankets…) Good point.
