They Can’t Be Serious: Apparently Calling Your Animals “Pets” Is Offensive SMH!

- By Bossip Staff

These animal rights people are getting out of hand and need to chill out for a bit. Apparently the term “pet” is insulting and demeaning to the animal. The animals, who probably weren’t surveyed, would rather be called “companion animals” while their “owners” should be called “human carers.” Can you believe that someone actually paid money to have scientists analyze this mess?

The “scholars,” who edit the Journal of Animal Ethics think that derogatory names for pets affects the way they’re treated. They also don’t want animals to be called “wild” as much as they should be called “free-living” and “free-ranging.” Give us a break, please.

Don’t worry, soon “pets” will be using the term as a sign of respect to each other but everyone that’s not a pet can’t use the word because it’s disrespectful.

    This really isn’t news. Anyone who has a pet and loves them doesn’t call them “pet” anyway. They probably refer to them as their ‘baby,’ ‘child,’ son,’ or ‘daughter.’ 🙂

    I understand folks love for their pets but some people, IMO, take it too far. There are some people who allow their pets to change their lives the way a child would. That’s something I will never understand.
