My Theory on why Pitbull advocates are ‘Nutters’

"Anyone can become angry. That is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way - that is not easy." – Aristotle

A few years ago, I experienced a serious pitbull attack that led to countless personal losses, I found myself outraged at the system that had enabled such attacks to occur in the first place. I mean isn’t Government supposed to protect innocent people from such unnecessary brutal and violent assaults? It didn’t take long for me to discover why, I soon learned there was an aggressive and outraged pitbull advocacy movement that had influenced Government and prevented reasonable protective legislation from being implemented. So I turned to social media to interact with these people, only to realize that they felt they were the aggrieved party, even though they had suffered no permanent  physical injury, as I had,  they had not lost the ability to walk or care for themselves for a substantial amount of time, as I had, they had suffered no large financial losses, as I had, they had never faced years of legal wrangling to seek compensation for their losses, as I had and they had not lost their business as I had.  The only loss it appears they had incurred is that people hurt their feelings because they were critical of the breed of dog they had chosen as a companion animal.  And yet their outrage was as if someone had murdered their entire family.  This disproportionate over reaction struck me as incredibly bizarre and until now I hadn’t been able to understand it sufficiently.

The reason why we are nutters is because of the way the breed is misunderstood? Only hurt our feelings? Do you know how many dogs were taken from their families and murdered because of the "vicious" breed they are??? Do you know how many fatal attacks have happened over the years by dogs in general? Or only by pits? The media at most only puts the breed in when its a pitbull...

Do you know how many pitbulls saved their owners lives? Or the fact that the pitbull is the only breed of dog to receive a purple heart in the army ?

Im sorry you incurred such a horrific incident but I will never apologize for my FACTS nor opions of the breed

nutters say sorry for your loss when what they really means is fuck you .
