Yo, pigs are smarter then cops, and also cute, and also sacred, so i'm asking yall to come up with a better animal kingdom / insect / parasitic entity to use as an expression for cops and want to see some fediverse suggestions
@Bashabez5 bull sharks
@Bashabez5 trying to figure out what other animal can be so authoritarian, rigid, and violent...like maybe fire ants or hornets?
@Bashabez5 🦟🦟🦟🦟 bloodsucking skeeters?
@Bashabez5 see the problem here is that no matter what creature you choose, it's still going to be insulting to compare them to cops
@Bashabez5 i suggest we call them, cops. they are the worst parasitic entity of all
@Bashabez5 (i guess that implies that they are an invading alien force, not something we humans created on our very own)
@Bashabez5 I think no matter what animal we compare cops too, it insults the animal.
Well the tounge louse are pretty vile on the outside looking in. But unlike cops, they play a role in healthy ecosystems, and unlike cops, are just doing what they do because they have to, not because they're racist assholes with an abusive complex working on behalf of a violent state.
@Bashabez5 wasps, IDK maybe wasps are to cool.
@Bashabez5 guineas? they are incredibly dumb, butt ugly, and frequently aggressive
@Bashabez5 oh fuck i forgot that’s already a slur against italians
@Bashabez5 in my defense i am also italian
@Bashabez5 brown marmorated stink bugs
also, i think there are plants that would work!
plant-based cop slur idea
@Bashabez5 for plants, i'd go with Cardamine hirsuta, commonly called "hairy bittercress" - seems like a decent word for a singular cop. This plant is also called shotweed, because it will shoot its seeds at you if you barely touch it.
@Bashabez5 mosquitoes because who likes mosquitoes
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
