People Explain Which Animals Get An Undeserving Amount Of Hatred

So many animals are only dangerous because of their need for survival or hunger.

Humans make the relationship with the animal kingdom worse.

Is there no way to co-exist?


One Redditor wanted to discuss aspects of the animal kingdom.

They asked:

"Which animal gets undeserving hate?"

Tigers and lions. Have you seen the videos of the tigers and lions who have bonded with their human? It's possible.

Flying Goths

"Vultures, eating dead bodies might seem ugly to some but other animals do the same thing but also murder them so how is just finding something that’s already dead and eating that worse, also eating a carcass removes deadly diseases like botulism from the environment."

"I always show my appreciation to the local goth turkeys."

The Yeeted

"Blob Fish... they just get yeeted out of the water and the massive pressure difference makes them look 'strange.' Kinda rude I guess. Like if we get yeeted into space and Aliens would laugh at our disfigured forms and print T-Shirts of it."

"I think I read somewhere that the pressure change causes their cells to explode and that’s why they look so horrific after being pulled out of the water. Dunno how factual that is."

Not the Villain

"Hyenas, partially because a whole generation grew up watching them help kill Mufasa lol."

"They’re awesome. They have a unique matriarchal society and they’re pretty smart, as well as tougher than hell. Wouldn’t want to smell their breath though."

"I've seen people arguing this before but people hate hated hyenas years before the lion king came out. They were constantly used in folklore as villains and opportunist and were often considered unlucky in most african cultures."Eaglekingoftheskies

Skunks? Um... from afar, they're cute. But stay away...

"Crows. Yes, I understand the caws can be annoying, but they're far more intelligent than a lot of people give them credit for."

"Possums! They eat pests and won't typically bother you unless rabid or provoked."

DrChefAstronaut

"Quick reminder then you need to specify which kind of possum, because not everyone here is from America. There a lots of possums here in Australia but they are completely different from the American kind in temperament! Only annoyance with possums here is if they get into your roof. Meanwhile in New Zealand, possums are ALWAYS a pest."

Bad Movie Vibes

"Sharks!"

TurbulentWeek897

"The guy who wrote Jaws ended up writing another book explaining how misunderstood sharks are. Because the movie Jaws scared everyone, and fishermen began to hunt sharks, making them endangered."

ChronoLegion2

"I was gonna say this! They're not bad guys they are just doing shark stuff! It's the freakin' dolphin types you gotta watch out for. Orcas will kill for fun. A shark is just trying to eat and don't see that well."

Powerful Babies

"Black Cats.They aren't evil and they don't bring bad luck."

SuvenPan

"It's a frequent mistake, but black cats actually bring good luck and blessings from The Void!

"Be sure to tell all your friends. If we work together to insist that black cats are good luck, we can help turn over the discrimination. Also, I have proof that they are good luck - whenever I see a black cat I become happy. Coincidence? I think not!!"

People Confess What Genuinely Disgusts Them

No two people react the same way to a pungent odor, gratuitous violence in film and television, or unruly, off-putting behavior.

As some people have a fairly high tolerance for gore, aren't bothered by taste and smell, and are so patient that they simply aren't bothered by anyone.

Although, everyone has their limits.

And despite what they might say, there are very few people who don't have one thing which even the very thought of will make them gag, just a little bit.

It's rare for a day to go by where women don't, quite understandably, complain about the annoying, even misogynistic behavior of men.

Addiction to video games, poor hygiene, too much excitement over a football or basketball game, bad table manners.

The list goes on and on.

But men don't only annoy women with their behavior.

Indeed, plenty of other men get equally annoyed or revolted by certain stereotypically "male" behavior, and wish it would come to an end.

Poor People Share The Most Out Of Touch Advice They've Received From A Rich Person

Successful people who come from humble beginnings usually don't forget where they came from.

But some of those who were already born into privilege and wealth may claim to be compassionate towards people who are financially disadvantaged.

But unless they've lived the experience as someone from the lower class or have a deep understanding of what life is like on the other side, the wealthy will never understand what it's like to be poor.

People Explain Which Teen Movies Made Them Think 'The Older I Get, The More I Agree With The Adult'

There's a fairly common formula in movies geared toward a teenage audience.

A group of teenagers face one central conflict, to varying degrees of importance and severity, but manage to solve it in a surprisingly short manner of time.

The heroes of these films are usually a hodgepodge of traditional high school archetypes (star athlete, math nerd, girl whose beauty is disguised by a pair of glasses), all of whom the intended audience can completely relate to and root for.

And then we have the adult characters, who are often buffoonish stereotypes, or the outright villain, whose sole mission is to ensure the protagonist will not achieve their ultimate goal.

As teenagers, we often find ourselves ready to boo these grown-ups from the minute they appear on the screen.

But when we revisit these movies as adults, we find ourselves noticing that their behavior isn't quite as bad as we remembered.

Or, more shockingly, we actually find ourselves rooting for them!
