Hating Predators is Like Being Racist or Homophobic.

You get a lot of people saying, “They killed and skinned Apollo Creed” but this isn’t really a big thing in the grand scheme of things.

Predators could have been on this world for 20 million years. That’s a lot longer than cities.

 And, if you think about it, the amount of predators on this planet is nothing if you think about the amount of people they’ve killed over the years.

They are here and they have been here for a long time, and it would be a tragedy if they disappeared from the skies.

I don’t really understand the distinction between jungle and urban Predators.The urban environment arrived a long time after Predators. They would not choose to live there, if it were not for the vast amounts of potential prey.

What right have we to judge how they find sport? Just because they are not as pretty as some other aliens, and commit a lot of murders, this does not give us the right to hide in mud and kill them.

More often than not, it is the human “behaviour” that drives Predators to their aggressive behaviour. Often, the choice of humans to sport weapons or not be pregnant drives the Predators to aggressive action.

Slowly there appears to be a move towards attacking Predators, such as shooting them with shotguns or attacking them with muscular men.

However, the Predators do not chose to act in ways that disagree with humans. Like being gay or Mexican, Predators do not choose to be Predators. Instead, they are born Predators. Indeed, if it were not for the fact that humans choose to have heads and attached spinal columns that make such good trophies, it seems unlikely that we would even be bothered by Predators.

So, the next time you encourage the actions of men like  Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny Glover, Adrien Brody, and  whoever was in the AvP movies, remember; Predators don’t choose their nature. So if you’re going to defend yourself from one of these creature’s fearsome plasma caster, ask yourself, “would I eat a Mexican gay woman?”. If the answer is “No!”, as it should be, maybe you should just accept your fate.

After all, better that than being some sort of alien-hating speciest.
