We’ve encountered way too many people who are unashamedly genocidal toward pit bulls. The fact that these bigoted attitudes have sustained such longevity is a marvel to behold. I love how smug and self-content these people get when they can exploit a tragedy. It’s trafficking in human misery and it’s a damn disgrace– all so they can feel justified in rabble rousing against innocent pit bull owners who have just as much to do with these anecdotes as the people leading the witch-hunt. Nothing. I loathe hearing about people suffering, infinitely more than those who pretend they care just to have ammunition, but I simply will not treat my dogs like criminals merely to appease somebody’s blatant, unchecked ignorance and blind hatred.
Anti-pit bull groups (whose names will not receive exposure from our site), are intent on perpetuating the stereotype that ALL pit bull owners are malevolent, drug dealing criminals. They want to convince other citizens that the only people who are interested in obtaining pit bulls are aggressive individuals and/or gang members who want to showcase their ferocity. They massage these conceptions into misinformation, and then attempt to appear as legitimate “safety advocates” whose only intentions are to protect children from “rampant dog attacks”. Their entire premise is a house of cards built on antiquated banalities, racism, and hyperbole. We’d like to thank everyone on this group for showing how humiliatingly wrong they really are. Pit Bulls are for LOVERS! 🙂
Some people have remarked to me, “I like the pit bulls but I wouldn’t want to deal with all the negativity that surrounds them”. If you love them, be an ambassador for them! Don’t worry about the negativity that others try to force into your life. The love a pit bull gives to us is immeasurably more powerful than any insult that has ever been uttered; more powerful than any law ever written against them. Stand up for this love and do not cower away from the opportunity to embrace this love– because if you ever do get a pit bull you will surely understand it and wonder how you’ve ever lived without it.
It is critical that we challenge the mass dissemination of myths, lies, misconceptions, and prejudice attitudes towards our bully breeds. Whether you are in a major pro-pit bull organization or just an individual communicating with friends, families, and neighbors, you are helping the cause. Do not forget this ever! Every time one person is turned on to how wrong the stereotypes are and how amazing these animals can be, we have achieved a victory. If someone questions your ownership of a pit bull, defend with pride, honor and love! 🙂
