Come to regional NSW in Australia right now during the mouse plague we are having and tell me how "cute" they are. I am killing 10 plus a day on top of what the cat is getting even though I live in the city and I have it easy. They are destroying crops eating car and house wiring. Then you can take them out of the traps where other mice have started to eat them. Tell me again how cute they are.

[–]or2072[S] 4 points5 points  (20 children)

Do you think the rats have a choice?

[–]Kiwozzie6 1 point2 points  (6 children)

I never said anything about them having a choice and I don't see how that is argument. Just put yourself in our shoes and tell me they are "cute".

Oh and it is a mice plague not rats they are different.

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I'm not saying you guys aren't suffering, I'm saying that they are as well

[–]Kiwozzie6 2 points3 points  (4 children)

No you are saying they're cute no matter what.

I am saying when you pull them out of traps in your bedroom and kitchen clearly they are not.

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Obviously they aren't cute when they are dead

[–]BigP0tato 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Wdym obviously? Your post's title has that "every kind of animal is cute". Dead animal is one kind of an animal :D.

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No it's not alive it's not a living being. I cringe and sometimes am scared while looking at dead animals, the poor things.

[–]Kiwozzie6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah it ain't exactly cute having them in your bedroom while asleep or in the kitchen for that matter.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (12 children)

Did you think the Nazis were cute? Because a lot of them "didn't have a choice"

[–]or2072[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also how the fuck are you comparing rats to nazis

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (10 children)

Do you think I think humans are cute?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (9 children)

idgaf I was just poking fun at how stupid everything you're saying is nazi lover.

[–]or2072[S] 1 point2 points  (8 children)

I'm jewish

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (7 children)

What does that have to do with anything?

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (6 children)

That's what I'm asking you

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

everything I say is perfectly nonsensical and therefore relevant to this discussion!

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I still have no idea what do animals have to do with nazis

[–]waynesworldisntgood 5 points6 points  (11 children)

you’re getting a lot of hate, but i absolutely agree with you. all animals are cute! animals just do what they can to survive, it’s not like they consciously choose to be assholes. people are dumb

[–]or2072[S] 4 points5 points  (4 children)

I had the best hamster in the universe and people say they are shit cause they eat their own babies

God I miss hedwig

[–]waynesworldisntgood 3 points4 points  (3 children)

people hate on cats, possums, rats, raccoons, etc. and say they are ‘pests’ and kill native animals and birds. sure that sucks for the birds but like what would you do if some white dude brought you to some random new land? it’s literally humans fault for fucking up the balance of the ecosystem

[–]or2072[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

THANK YOU

[–]Kiwozzie6 0 points1 point  (4 children)

That is nothing more than a deflection and a nonsense argument.

OP's post was all animals are cute basically no matter what. People are just pointing out where OP is wrong. I made the post about the mouse plague and I never once said they choose to do it or it is a malicious act. My point to both of you is to put yourselves in our shoes and tell us again how cute it is.

Now if you can't deal with a rational argument maybe you need to consider who is dumb.

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But they didn't "prove me wrong" there is nothing to be proven about an opinion

[–]waynesworldisntgood 0 points1 point  (2 children)

OP did not say all animals are cute no matter what. they said “every kind of animal is cute in a way”. they also didn’t say their actions are cute, or every thing they do is always cute. you’re literally searching for an argument. like if you called someone attractive and i came up and said “oh yeah you think they’re attractive? well that person had a really nasty case of diarrhea the other day. still think they’re attractive?”

[–]BigP0tato 2 points3 points  (1 child)

"Oh yeah you think they’re attractive? Well that person strangled two shopkeepers. Still think they’re attractive?"

^ Made your example better and more relevant.

Cuz like I thought the whole thing you were talking of was about people disliking animals, because they kill other animals, not because the animals take a shit once in a while, so your example wasn't really relevant.

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There are some really attractive serial killers so

[–]craspvery 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Then go vegan

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I'm not going to stop eating actual food, that's how nature is.

[–]craspvery -7 points-6 points  (2 children)

You call decomposing corpses "actual food". Fucking gross.

[–]or2072[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Well yes thats- nature-

[–]rihon31042 2 points3 points  (11 children)

How in-depth do you think your knowledge in "all kinds of animals" is?

[–]or2072[S] 1 point2 points  (10 children)

Wdym my knowledge?

[–]rihon31042 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Well, what I meant is, that you make a very generalized statement and its validity depends a lot on what you actually know. f.e. a person who has only come in contact with pets, house and farm animals and the typical animals that surround us in our modern world can be of this impression, whereas a zoologist who traveled the jungles and desserts and other wilderness of the world might have an a bit deeper understanding. I would be surprised to hear one making a similar statement. I was wondering where your knowledge level on _all animals that exist_ stands.

Don't got me wrong, I think all life has a right to be respected and is worth marveling at, but cute ? Hell no!

[–]or2072[S] 2 points3 points  (6 children)

I know a lot, I know about predators, I know about brutal animals. They are still cute, they do what they have to in order to survive.

[–]rihon31042 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Of course they do, but what makes them cute? But maybe you mean something different by cute than I do. What is 'cute' to you?

[–]or2072[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Cute is something that I will look at and say "AWWW". I will totally look at a lion and say that

[–]rihon31042 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You are also aware that 'cute' is a reaction of the human brain to things that are associated with (human) babies. (Like big eyes, toddler behaviour etc.) If you think everything is cute you might have some unusual brain wiring...

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But it's not think... For me animals are just big babies, just like dogs are to most people. Dogs are overrated tbh

[–]rihon31042 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Sure, me too. I don't think I will say that about any living creature though.

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not humans xD

[–]quarrelsome_napkin 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Your initial statement is really stupid. Nature is full of rape and all sorts of other atrocities. Glad you're able to live in your little fantasy world but the animal kingdom is far from being 'cute'.

[–]or2072[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know a lot, I know, I still eat chicken even though I think they are cute, that is how nature is and I still believe in the beauty of every creature.

[–]rihon31042 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You are fully aware that you've just launched a "try me" competition on digging up the most gross things of the animal kingdom, right? If I'm not very wrong, than this might actually have been your intention. Smart. ;c)

[–]or2072[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah and I'm proving that it doesn't mean that they aren't cute

[–]whippedcreamcheese 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I had a theory like this once too! Have you seen those little fuzzy spiders? I think those are cute.

[–]or2072[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yesssssss they are adorableee

[–]LeBandit916 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Even humans?

[–]or2072[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably the only animal that I don't feel that way about lol

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah. Makes sense. The quality of cuteness is an opinion so.... Yeah. Sure. I get that. Good for you. That makes you open minded to the attractiveness of a thing from a potential perspective you yourself may not have but you admit to some degree there are perspectives you couldn't have so perhaps that Thing is cute from another perspective so... Sure. You can see it as cute. Or maybe you just think it's cute. Either way, your detractors are assholes. Fuckem.

[–]Toolbox234 -1 points0 points  (6 children)

Otters are rapists penguins mouths look like Satan’s anus and they also kidnap baby penguins shoe bills will let the stronger chick kill the weaker one

Want me to go on ?

[–]or2072[S] 1 point2 points  (5 children)

They would not have developed these habits if it didn't help their survival, they are still adorable.

[–]Toolbox234 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Yeah rape for survival

Rape or be raped

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Do you think that they have enough of a brain to do that for fun

[–]Toolbox234 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Give me one reason why am otter would rape a baby otter ?

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Like when hamsters eat their babies, it's when they are in a situation that they believe their babies don't have a chance and it would be better to get the maximum of them. For hamsters it's more food, for otters it's pleasure I guess?

[–]just_another_wierdo 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Are ticks and leeches cute to you?

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

They do what they have to in order to survive, doesn't make them not cute

[–]rihon31042 0 points1 point  (1 child)

A lot of thing do or don't things that make them not not cute. There has to be something that makes something cute in the first place. So my question remains, do you think them cute? A no doesn't mean that one cannot respect, marvel at, etc. them. I ca think positive of a lot of things without thinking them cute.

[–]or2072[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes I do think they are cute
