Humans Are Weird
I’ve been thinking a bit and like
What if humans are really the only species to be hateful to members of their own species because of things they can’t help (Racism/Sexism/Homophobia/etc)
Like I’m just?? I don’t think I’ve seen that in any other species EXCEPT humans. All I’m seeing here is multiple conversations following along the lines of
Human: So then I said ‘Get back in the kitchen and make me a sandwich!’ Hahaha
Alien: Why would she do that? Aren’t you perfectly capable of doing the same?
Human: No, it’s just.. she’s a girl, and a girl’s place is in the kitchen.
Alien: ??? Is are females of your species literally entirely dependent upon living in a single type of room in the houses you build??
Human: No,,, but,,,
Alien: If you aren’t capable of even making a simple ‘sandwich’ then I’m afraid we must’ve gotten the wrong guy on our ship. You’re a mechanic, surely you should be able to construct such a simple thing as a sandwich.
Alien: So your parents kicked you out?
Human: Yeah, they didn’t really like that I was gay.
Alien: Why would they do that? Humans are supposed to be really possessive and caring creatures, yet it seems that your 'parents’ go against most known laws about humans.
Human: Nah, it’s not that uncommon, sadly, I’m by far not the first nor the last. At least it’s better, they used to kill gay people LEGALLY for being gay.
Alien: 'Legally??’ You mean at one point it was LEGAL for you guys to kill people for an alteration in attraction?? People still do that on your planet, but just ILLEGALLY???
Various other conversations follow, and every alien is able to conclude one thing:
Humans can safely be assumed as the most BACKWARDS ASS species most have EVER found. They kill each other for fuck’s sake over something someone said in a book hundreds of years ago.
