Since time immemorial, we have been associating acts of violence and hooliganism with the phrase ‘animalistic behaviour’. It doesn’t take a genius to understand the derivative if this phrase. Animals are ferocious and menacing. The law of the jungle demands them to be challenging and predatory.

However, not all animals.

The generalisation of the phrase is just another classic example of human ignorance. Animals can be the most loving, caring and joyful creatures to be surrounded with. To tag the whole ecosystem of wildlife animals to be ‘animalistic’ is sheer injustice. 

Well, what about the gentle elephants who love their mahouts.
The dogs and cats who light up our lives.
The penguins and koalas that do nothing but ‘chill’.
The horses that make for great companions. 
And, all the other animals that greet us with a warm nod.

It’s time we blame humankind for human behaviour.
It’s time we associated human-driven violence with the human trait. 

Humanistic. Not animalistic. 
Language demands responsibility. 
Animals deserve better representation. 


This World Animal Day, Buffalo Soldiers rolls out A PETITION  to change the phrase ‘animalistic behaviour’ to ‘humanistic behaviour’. Because, it’s time to have a reality check. Because #NotAllAnimals
