Honest to god, there is nothing good or compassionate or special about not loving animals. Thinking of pets as toys is not a sign of strong moral character. You are not a special snowflake because you would abandon your pets the moment they became inconvenient (in fact, you are deeply and depressingly commonplace). And bragging about all these things while smugly lecturing people who consider their pets family members about how superior you are and how wrong and silly and selfish they are is REALLY not a good look.

You don’t have to value your animals as much as I do. But you’re sure as hell not going to make me feel bad for valuing mine. You’re just going to make me think that you’re a self-righteous, insufferable douchebag.
