the last time i called my mom a homophobe she slapped me in the face and i’m still afraid to tell her that i have a girlfriend ok don’t you even dare do this here because you have no fucking clue what you’re talking about
Upon many requests, here are the awesome tips for you guys!
You know what really pisses me off? The fact that pit bulls are illegal in most places. There isn’t any need for it. I understand that at one point in time they were used for fighting but that really isn’t the case any more. Yes, they can be mean and aggressive, but what dog isn’t. I’ve seen more vicious chihuahuas and dachshunds than pits at my work. And that actually means something considering I work at a vet’s office and see so many dogs.
A friend of mine actually went up to a police officer and asked why they weren’t allowed here and do you know what the cop said? “Oh they aren’t, I didn’t know that.”
So why are they?
It’s because there people are scared. They can’t get over the fact that were once used and breed to fight but do they know what they were used for before that?
Probably not so I’ll tell you, they were used for nannies, yes, nannies. For most of the 114 years since the American pit bull terrier was first recognized by the United Kennel Club, the breed was rightly seen as the perfect “nanny dog” for children because of its friendly nature, loyalty and stability.
They are now seen as horrible monsters because of the media. These poor dogs are what their owner makes them, and those are the only dogs of this breed that are publicly shown. If they live in a house hold where they are beaten and yelled at, sure they are going to snap eventually, I mean who wouldn’t?
They are the way they are because of how they were raised. And if they reproduce, which they most likely will because their owners think it makes them more bad ass not to be neutered, with those behaviors then it will create a generation of hate. I think we can say the same about some people too. And those are the kind of people that make a bad name for this breed.
But what about the people who actually take care of their animals? Do you hear about them much? I would think other than Pit bulls and Parolees, not so much. These are the kind of people that need to be shown. They are saving the unwanted animals that are deemed dangerous by society when the AVMA says that there haven’t been any controlled studies done to show that this specific breed is “disproportionately dangerous”.
So lets help along the movement. Let’s use our brains for a moment and set aside what we were taught about these terrifying beasts and take a deeper look. Look at how far we’ve come in raising them and how far they’ve come learning form us. Yes, there will still be those dogs that’ll make everyone look bad, but those dogs are everywhere. It’s insane to me to think that in my city if you even have a dog that looks like a pit it can be taken away.
We need to change just as much as they have.
