I was just thinking the other day that animals have things pretty rough. They don’t have the same rights as humans, we treat them like slaves in some instances, they don’t ever get paid, EVER, and even when they are treated well, we tend to speak to them in condescending baby talk. If someone did that to me, I’d slap them.
Sure, you could say that animals aren’t all that smart, but some humans have learning difficulties and we don’t reduce THEM to the bottom rungs of society. Honestly, maybe the world would be a fairer and nicer place if we just gave labradors the right to vote, or made it so that camels could get home loans.
You never see a possum in the office of a Melbourne property advocate. Why IS that? If a possum went into the office of a property advocate and wanted to be served, would it be given service? It’s not like they have signs outside specifically banning possums. I don’t think they actually WOULD refuse service; it’s just not something they’ve ever had to deal with, probably. That, and it’d be very challenging to find the perfect home for a possum. It’d have to be really small, possibly with plenty of outdoor space. Finding a home for a kangaroo might not be too bad, to be honest. They’re roughly the size of humans, so all of our regular human houses would do them just fine. Not to mention that if kangaroos ever rose from their place in society, we would probably owe each and every one of them millions for the many times we’ve used their image. Seriously, it’s everywhere, and we never asked. Providing them with a Melbourne buyers advocate would probably be the very least we can do to make up for all the farming and intellectual property infringement. Maybe it’s best that kangaroos remain blissfully unaware of the housing benefits that they could be claiming. Doesn’t feel right, though…
