Dear Internet,

Why is it that we're supposed to be so careful about warning for anything that someone else might find offensive or "triggery" when it's about religion or colour or sexuality but it's perfectly OK to post - without any warning and not under a cut - a close-up of a fucking huge hairy SPIDER for fuck's sake?

Last time someone did it I put up a comment asking for it to go under a cut - the poster refused and basically implied that I was being pathetic and unreasonable, and all the other comments were about how perfectly fucking cute it was.

Some days, frankly, I hate the politically-correct section of the world that says you only have to be politically correct about the things that it's politically correct to be politically correct about and that almost getting a heart attack from a sudden unexpected FUCKING GREAT HAIRY SPIDER apparently doesn't count.

Fuck off, world, I'm going to sit outside in the sunshine.

Spiders I can cope with, but if I translate that to snakes my reaction would be the same.

Ack, I'm with you. I don't like spiders and I definitely don't like huge pictures of them popping up without warning and giving me the creeps. D:

Yeah, I do get annoyed sometimes when we're supposed to show consideration for people whose ideas I think are barbaric but no-one seems to care about our ideas or culture /offtopic
