Reddit Satirizes Man Irritated Of Hearing Pets Publicly Called By “Sons” And “Daughters”

There are plenty of titles given to pets as their owners yearn to show them great affection and sweetness, such as baby, sweetie, honey, kiddy, sweetheart, deary, et. However, is it right and fine to address these little furballs with tags that belong to the human world? Is it validated to call pets “son”, “daughter”, “kid”, “child”? Will it cause misunderstanding and unpleasantness? Let’s find out how Reddit judge on this aspect!

A man with his Reddit account u/SomeRandomRealtor mentioned his idea on the hot subreddit r/unpopularopinion to unfold his pet peeve about several pet owners who talked about their pets as if these animals had been hundred-percent human beings. He couldn’t bear people describing their domestic creatures with human characteristics and functions.

The OP expressed comprehending pet owners’ love and care for their animals. Plus, he admitted to being an animal admirer. He just couldn’t get why people didn’t accept pets as they were pets but had to personify the creatures to love them. He assumed pet owners could perform as pet-mommies, pet-daddies, pet-grandmas, et, but an animal would never be a true son, daughter, or grandkid. Therefore, at least he hoped people could stop titling pets with these name tags.

In the comment section below the pinned post, Redditors didn’t show many objections to the OP’s opinion because they were busy making jokes. It seemed they got why he had to demand, but they just wanted to make some good laugh. The topic of “what to name and what not to name pets” always gave Redditors a chance to display their creative touches of sarcasm.

Besides, some people announced not to take pet-titling as a serious problem. They supposed it wasn’t that pet owners wished the animals to execute as a real child. They only desired to fill up the void in their homes. It was reasonable for someone not to sympathize with them, yet it wasn’t so dangerous or displeasing that it had to be cut out completely from daily conversations.

On the other hand, quite a number of people agree with the OP. Overly personifying an animal made them feel like the one they were speaking to was having some sort of mental problem. They were afraid that keeping this verbal habit would lead to delusions of literally considering the pets as human existence, which they couldn’t find cute and sweet at all.
