Do you know what I will never ever understand?
Why people can be so afraid of things that they know are absolutely irrational and illogical to be afraid of.
Like spiders. I get that some spiders can be poisonous, and evolutionarily it makes sense. But if you KNOW that a wolf spider cannot even hurt you then for fuck’s sake let it live. Or ants, or MOTHS. What the fuck is a moth going to do to you? Bump into your arm?
I’m not talking about emotional fears, like vulnerability, or social anxiety, I’m talking about worms or LEAVES SOME PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF LEAVES. Even bees. Unless you are allergic, shut the fuck up if a bee comes near you or I will hurt you 10 times worse than that bee ever could. It is a goddamn insect 350 times smaller than you are, minding its own business and I’m pretty sure that you have the ability to rationalize ignoring it.
This shit makes me so angry.
