we’re assholes too

we're assholes too

[If you share this photo, make sure you include the image description: a small beige and brown dog (a pug) in the foreground is wearing a black and white sign around their neck which reads “i like to run over the big dog with my cart”. The pug seems to have no back legs and is using a wheeled cart attachment to enable them to move around. In the background there is a large (looks similar to a labrador) cream coloured dog laying on the floor next to a brown leather couch. The lab (who seems to have a somewhat forlorn/resigned look on their face) is looking towards the camera and the pug in the foreground. The text i have added to the right hand side reads: we can be jerks too. still feeling “inspired”?]

One thought on “we’re assholes too

  1. I love this. It reminds me of a story David Suzuki tells in his memoir “Metamorphosis”– he spends a whole year of college tied up in knots of anxiety because he can’t stand his African-Canadian roommate.He’s afraid that means he’s racist, and he doesn’t want to be. One day it suddenly dawns on him– race and skin colour notwithstanding, the roommate is a jerk! Suzuki reflects on the subtle racism implied in his assumption that it was somehow wrong to dislike the man as an individual.
