*casually points out lots of people are childless due to disability, LGBT status, extreme poverty, racial injustices, etc. which may bar them from both having biological kids or adopting, and so lots of people do totally view their pets as children.*
Yeah no, I know you more mean “People who view their pets as more important than other people” and I totally agree with you there - if you actually value your pet more than a person that is fucked up. But a lot of them do view their pets as kids in the sense that it’s the closest living thing to a family they’ll get personally (as well as an outlet for maternal/paternal doting.) And that same maternal/paternal affection toward non-kin would be seen as very creepy and inappropriate anyway, lol.
And just I see a lot of people dismissing that, or outright denying/mocking that, and so I just feel like I need to point it out and remind people that not everyone has equal access to becoming parents or maintaining families.* :/(via dystopianapocalypticdreams)

Imagine finding a dragon egg one day, and it hatches in your house and thinks you’re its mom. Then the next morning you wake up and find this mini dragon has gathered all the lose change and shiny objects in your house in a pile, and is gnawing on a nickel. And then when you take it out for walks, it picks up every coin it sees cause its a hoarder. And your house is eventually full of coins. And you are rich. And have a dragon.
