rionhunter asked: Reading some of your previous messages about the bees thing, I can't help but feel that your justification is a little selfish. Like, sure. One person can't make much of a difference, but it's people like you that will be responsible for truly fucking up this world for everyone. It's not just YOU that has to deal with the consequences of selfishness. But I won't expect you to change, because you're selfish, so I just want to say that you are everything I hate about us as a race. Thanks.
Oh, I won’t deny that I’m being selfish. To me, it seems impossible that someone, if given the opportunity to, wouldn’t wish for a certain anything to merely stop existing, regardless of the very rational consequences. I’m of the belief that my selfishness, defined as my interest before anyone else’s, to be beneficial to my existence and to the existence of those I care about, which is more than enough reason for me to keep on trucking the way I do. I mean, I want to be happy! And I am happy because I’m awesome and I take care of me! Nothing much more to say to that!
Context: this guy would be okay with killing all the bees because he doesn’t like them, despite… Y’know, how important they are.
That’s pretty much it! There isn’t much more to it than that.
I’m sorry, but I’ve noticed the same attitude with wasps and spiders with the whole “kill it with fire” mentality when they’re extremely important as well, so I find it quite hypocritical to hate on “big scary spiders” but when someone doesn’t like bees which is quite a rational phobia they’re horrible.
In another post he made, he stated he wouldn’t actually call the exterminator but instead get his house exorcised and honestly, this debacle is getting tiring.
TL;DR killing spiders with fire is perfectly reasonable, but bees oh no we have a complete doushenozzle here.
