** However, this is usually justified because many peaceful-seeming aliens have turned out to be AWolfInSheepsClothing type aliens, the setting itself is rife with EverythingTryingToKillYou or because such cases [[WatsonianVsDoylist are an attempt to]] [[CanonDefilement shoehorn]] FurryFandom material into a non-furry setting.

* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}''. Remy's major struggle is the fact that humans think rats are gross; the movie shows them as just mischievous. A bonus short on the DVD cheekily acknowledges the relationship between humans and rats throughout history; they ''do'' have a history of carrying fleas that spread disease, but rats in and of themselves are actually pretty fastidious.

In extreme cases, this can start to look like the animal equivalent of FantasticRacism. Where are the wise crows, easygoing iguanas, relentless, all-consuming caterpillars, mean, aggressive hippos, gentle gorillas, murderous doves, AxCrazy chimpanzees, [[KillerRabbit bullying swans]], suicidal deer, ad infinitum?

** It probably also depends on the insect species in question. If youtube video comment sections are anything to go by, people '''are''' indeed likely to react negatively to mistreatment of insects if the insects suffering it are, say, [[PrettyButterflies butterflies]], ladybugs, or fire flies - probably not coincidentally the insects that tend to be viewed as 'cute'.
