It's important to be kind...but don't be a doormat.
I remember that feeling. Not fun. An exchange I had a with a friend back in those days….
Friend – “Hey, you have changed your look a lot.”
Me – “Do you think it makes me look gay ?!?”
Friend – “Huh? Why do you think I think it makes you look gay?”
Me – “Nothing, Sorry”
Friend – “Since you brought it up…are you gay?”
If you aren’t opposing evil, you are supporting it.
Does he even know that kid?
I dread whatever crushing blow is coming her way.
Looks like Pilot gets to save the day. I think it was established he is practiced in caring for animals….his rats anyways.
Thank you, I was wondering the same thing. The meaning, if any, of the cartoon hinges on that information.
My brother got a shelter dog this year who had been in a home that abused it. Been conditioned by past treatment by humans to expect beatings. But she is relaxing now and trusting her new family. Humans aren’t much different in that we also react according to how past experience has conditioned us.
Earth is already working on the problem. Let humanity make the environment inhospitable to sustain it and thereby kill itself. Then Earth can spend a few thousand years repairing the biosphere after we are gone.
It’s sad the other species have to be wiped out too in the process. But some must be sacrificed if all are to be saved.
Do you expect a dog you have beaten for years to start wagging it’s tail when its sees you…after giving it one treat?
Respect and trust is earned over time…through consistent behavior. To expect instant placation and adoration is ridiculous.
I wish there was some way to be certain of that. But what if there is an afterlife? It’s a terrifying thought…existing for eternity.
