Alright. This has been irking me for a while. So many people have such an irrational fear of snakes it’s absolutely ridiculous. Even pet ones.
Afraid of getting bitten? JUST ABOUT ANY ANIMAL YOU CAN HAVE AS A PET CAN BITE. If you mess with them the wrong way or stress them out, any animal is likely to bite you! Some animals of any type just have bad tempers.
Another thing in this is, animals can sense when you’re stressed to hell. And it’s going to make them stressed. Which will increase your chances of getting bitten.
Think what they eat is gross? Yes, snakes eat whole mice/rats. It’s how their bodies work. Your cats and dogs eat meat as well. (If you don’t feed them meat product, you are depriving them of a huge part of their diet and they are most likely malnourished and you are a bad person) Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
PET SNAKES ARE NOT VENOMOUS AND/OR POISONOUS. Just, period. They aren’t. If you’re afraid of venomous and/or poisonous wild snakes in your area, just look them up so you can avoid them. They wouldn’t attack you unless you freaked them out anyways. But any snakes sold as pets by pet stores or breeders are NOT.
Constriction fear? Seriously? Don’t be stupid enough to put a strong constricting snake around your neck, just as you wouldn’t put a dog’s mouth around your neck.
Constrictors only constrict their prey. You’re very obviously not a rodent. They’re not going to try to kill you.
And don’t EVER say you’d want to kill or hurt someone’s snake because you think they’re gross or some crap like that. That is rude beyond belief and completely intolerable.
It’s fine if you don’t like snakes for a real reason. But stop creating this stupid stigma from irrational fear.
This proverb exists in different forms in many parts of Africa
"Until lions have their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter" (Igbo, Nigeria).
"Until lions start writing down their own stories, the hunters will always be the heroes" (Kenya and Zimbabwe).
Black/African history has always being taught/told from the perspective of White American/European colonisers. We need to reclaim our history and culture. No more white African Queens, Kings and Gods, there needs to be a true representation of African history and culture in the media.
"If I perform this emergency abortion I’m a murderer!!!"
No, bro. You’re a murderer if you let your pregnant patient die in your office because you refused them an emergency abortion.
As a medical professional, let me say this: If you will not put your patient first—if you will not perform life saving medical care because of your own beliefs—stay the fuck out of the field.
We have enough abusive and ableist people in the field as it is.
