Can you identify a person who is cruel to animals?

    When I was studying psychology, a Professor said that people who abuse other people verbally, physically etc are even more likey to abuse animals as the animals cant defend themselves....I seen people on the threads yesterday use words like Stupid and Creep to describe me - when I had done them no harm.....these abusive people are a danger to animals and they might not even know it...or perhaps they do know it and thats why they are angry with themselves.......

    i think people like to blame other for their problems thus they take it out on everyone else even when that person didnt do anything to the mean one. i could never identify with someone who is cruel to animals .. i have no use for them or respect

    well said pinklee, I cant tolerate those who abuse animals, still I suppose as you say, the abusers usually attack others to conceal their crimes smile

    I have just picked up my local paper and a woman was convicted in court this week of abusing and neglecting cows, she was abusive to the authorities when they arrived at her house....I suppose that is typical.....animal welfare people just trying to help.....

    I don't like people who abuse animals, irish, but I can't be relied on to identify them. I'm so drunk most of the time I hardly know who I am myself. If I didn't make it a practice to always carry my ID I would have been in big trouble more than once.

    Have you ever heard the song "Sometimes You're the Windshield, Sometimes You're the Bug"? I'm pretty sure I've the bug a few times. Do insects count as animals?

      I have just realised what is wrong with this thread - half the usual suspects are missing - nobody has had a go at god yet, even though he never did anything to anyone !

    people with problems with other people aren't necessarily animal abusers.

      You referring to Sarah Palin ?   Just joking -

      Of course you are right, but animal abusers normally have some kind of serious social problems with people ? ?

        No I wasn't..

        And you are right, about animal abusers generally having problems with people, but the purpose of this thread was to be pissy about people being mad at irish for childish threads with sexual innuendos, as hinted at in his initial post.

      Yep, and you saying the people who called you names in the forums yesterday are potential animal abusers is ignorant because you're just mad at them for calling you out.


      I know females who are complete witches and plain mean and rude to most people, especially other females, yet they are great parents to their pets

    I am simply repeating what a psychology professor said, are you really studying, you dont seem to be able to identify the difference between a simple question and personal interpretation....I am finishing a Phd...what is your study...
