#notallbedbugs

I think bedbugs are misunderstood.

“Don’t let the bedbugs bite! You’ll get a rash and die,” we are warned.

Funny, because I don’t think a bedbug would fancy being bitten by you, either.

Maybe they’re hungry. Maybe they’re lonely.

Maybe we just need to be more compassionate towards things we’ve heard about but don’t really understand.

This is a lot less about actual bedbugs than originally intended.

Anyhow. Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bedbugs bite. Or do let them bite, I don’t know, it’s your life.

Or we could all stop making sweeping generalisations about large and diverse communities that cannot possibly be represented by a small minority that may not even exist at all. Maybe not all bedbugs are bad.

    1. That’s fair enough. Less literally though, it’s important that society stops placing labels on massively diverse groups because of the actions of a minority within that group.
