Unpopular opinion: in general, I think people who are really into animals have something wrong with them that keeps them from being able to relate to people on their own level. So they become "friends" with their dog or whatever, because that's easier.

I think that's both wrong, and just really dickish to say

this, bigtime.

But apparently by this thread not dickish to say there is "something wrong" with those who are not 'animal lovers'?

Hmm. One can be neutral on animals and get on very well with people. And vice versa. The two are not necessarily dependent.

Huh, I think the opposite. I think having a connection with animals says that you are an empathic person and therefore also probably capable of deep attachment with other human beings.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-12 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah. People who don't like animals for some reason always make me side-eye them. I wonder if there's empathy there towards people, either. Anyone who's cruel to animals, especially, but even just people who have no use for them or find them disgusting and irritating, I wonder about those people, and I don't quite trust them. I don't mean someone who's afraid of dogs because they were bitten once, or something like that--that's a bit different--but someone who just generally doesn't like animals or is cruel to animals, thinks animal cruelty is funny, etc. I always sort of figure they're a psychopath in the making. There are too many studies linking animal cruelty to human cruelty...

Yup, it's true that the link between violence to animals and to humans is very well-documented. I think in general (this is a personal opinion), violence against those who are weaker/cannot defend themselves is associated with either callousness, or low social ability. Which is funny, because it's exactly the opposite of what thread OP was saying.

Not to say that being annoyed by an animal is the same as actively hurting them, of course, but I agree that I will always feel either sorry for or a little bit wary of anybody that goes out of their way to remark on how annoying, stupid, etc. they find pets.

You sound like a bully. Deciding people who you personally find pathetic have "something" wrong with them. Maybe rethink this.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 05:33 pm (UTC)(link)
As should all the people here saying there is "something wrong" with those who don't dote on animals.

Won't happen though. Fandom is overrun with cat lovers.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-12 11:56 pm (UTC)(link)
While I think it's possible that someone with anxiety around humans could feel more comfortable around animals, I'm way more judgey of people with little to no empathetic connection to animals. If you don't think a dog or cat could be someone you'd be capable of having a real, genuine connection with, I think there's probably something wrong with you and you probably aren't good at connecting with humans either.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 05:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Disagree very strongly. Aside from the fact that some of us are allergic and therefore know we can't have a 'real, genuine connection' with a thing that brings us out in hives and takes our breath away (literally) - which doesn't mean we want to hurt them as that seems to be the only alternative posed on this thread - love or hate, there is nothing to say that this is true although it is very popular with animal lovers to say presumably as it enables them to feel superior.

Anecdote: One guy I knew (co-worker) who was vegan, animal rights yay, super into animals of all kinds was the most dickish, unpleasant bully towards other people that I have ever had the misfortune to meet.

Although I imagine you will assume it was my fault as you have already judged me by your post.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 12:14 am (UTC)(link)
And the reason they become that way is because of other people who have much worse things wrong with them. When most of the people you know are truly awful and you can't take the risk of opening up to any more, you turn to your pets.

Isn't the stereotype for dog people that they're also really outgoing, social types?

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 05:31 am (UTC)(link)
In my experience, yes (although with the caveat that not all dog owners are "dog people.")

It's like they got a dog and went apeshit and now they looooove dogs so much! And they will use their powers of outgoing-ness to constantly talk to people about dogs!! It's like the dog version of the virus that makes you like cats.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 03:18 am (UTC)(link)
Liking people and liking animals are not mutually exclusive, so I'd advise not making assumptions about a person's affinity for other humand based purely on their love for animals.

You seem socially ignorant.

"Why did the Feanorian who was the animal guy have the biggest dick?"

I read. Three times before I got it. That's a bit racy for F!S, I reflected.

I read it that way, too.

I got to the end of the secret and was confused and then went back and read the first sentence again and then I got it.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 10:58 am (UTC)(link)
All I got initially was dogfuck rapeworld, with knotting optional. Also: I never knew Tolkien described dick sizes in the Silmarillion. Live and learn.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 12:58 am (UTC)(link)
I misread that as "has" not "was" the biggest...

Surprisingly only changes the secret slightly. lol.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
I scrolled down to make pretty much this exact comment and was pleased to see I'm not alone.

Has biggest dick, ok, headcanon accepted.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 02:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Yep. Silmarillion dog dude? Oh, that one with the big schlong!

He was a hunter. Beren was a vegetarian. I suppose it's just a matter of contrasts.

(Anonymous) 2017-07-13 01:39 am (UTC)(link)
He was a hunter, so had a hunting-dog. Beren was a vegetarian. I suppose it's just a matter of contrasts.
I feel a bit sorry for prey animals in Valinor. They basically had no chance. And did they die or were they immortal like Huan? And what happened to Huan after he died?

/has a lot of questions about Huan
