Respect for Spiders Stamp. by VampsStock Respect for Spiders Stamp. by VampsStock
I was unhappy with the old version, so I decided to redo this stamp. I want to get around to doing the other two as well, since they're a bit outdated. Here's the old version, just for comparison sta.sh/02261kr2c8dd

A companion to my 'Respect for Birds' fav.me/d38ndmj and 'Respect for Snakes' fav.me/d3aq6o9 stamps. I hate how people bash spiders because they're afraid of them, or because spiders can, on rare occasion, kill people. You know what? The diseases carried by mosquitoes are far more deadly than a little spider bite and spiders eat mosquitoes. Fear is no excuse for cruelty. Yes, you can use this, you don't have to ask.

As long as they stay away from me, and do what they do, we are fine, TOUCH ME, they will have my urine all over them, because I will be very scared.

I want to not be afraid of them,  but whenever I try, I always end up screaming and freaking out in the end... I guess it can't be helped. I don't even know what it is that makes me dislike them so much. Maybe it's because they're kinda creepy...

Don't worry, I'm the same way with cockroaches ^^; The fact that you're attempting to overcome your fear is an achievement in itself :)

It's a good thing that you have respect for an animal you also fear ;) Many people simply hate the creatures they fear.

I love spiders! ^^ I have two living outside on my house! I can't tell what they are actually. I suspect they maybe just a type of house spider but I've never seen one with orange legs with black stripes around the legs!  I find them actually quite adorable!^^

Yes, and then let the earth be infested by flies and mosquitoes and other insects with no spiders to get rid of them.

If I find a spider in the house I take it outside. If it stays it'll get squashed or eaten by either my cats or baby brother. :I

Yeah spiders serve to control the insect population so that there is never a huge abundance of insects.

Plus they are fun to play with even the venomous ones like black widows are fun to play with if you know what you're doing

I love all kinds of spiders uwu There are some which I treat with caution, the ones which I can't identify or know are poisonous, but I never kill them for being even potentially dangerous. I'll happily handle any spider which I know is harmless (a full grown huntsman spider is the largest I've held so far :'D) and the ones which do pose a risk to me or the pets I catch and put outside. Every room in my house has at least one resident harvestman in a corner of the ceiling and they control flies very well. Some of the larger spiders I'll take outside.

If a large spider, particularly one which I recognize as dangerous, appears out from nowhere, I will 'squeak' (:XD:) and maybe jump back, but I don't try to kill the creature. Fear keeps us safe after all, and I'd rather be 'scared' of a spider than risk being bitten by the rather aggressive whitetails living around here.

If I do kill a spider, it's usually for a reason, such as approaching one of my pet rats too fast for me to react in any other way, is about to actively harm another pet or there's no other way to get it out of the house. I always try to kill them as fast as possible via a crushing blow or something and I rage at my father whenever he sprays one with fly spray. Just seeing the innocent thing stumbling around for ten minutes just upsets me so much and I usually take it outside and kill it there to end its suffering.

I absolutely hate videos on youtube of people killing spiders or something like that. I saw a particularly sick one of a bunch of guys burning a house spider to death with a laser - that took about four minutes, and it was being laughed at the whole time. If someone did that to a cat, dog, horse or any other popular furry animal, they, at the very least, would have to pay a fine for cruelty.

I have personally raised about four thousand spiders (several hundred came from one ridiculously productive female, and a couple thousand came from a few flower spiders I'd caught and they hatched out ALL OVER MY ROOM and took me THREE HOURS to get them all back XD) and my oldest spider is a common house spider, at five years and still going strong.

If I find a spider in the house I have to take it outside (or if it's in the basement just shoo it out of sight) because my family is full of arachnophobes....  I almost never kill them unless like you said, there's no way to catch them.


I miss my tarantula Trixie... she was such a sweetie...

While they freak me out because I can't tell deadly ones from not deadly ones I understand they are important and have their place. Their place though, for me, is outside my home.

I hate when people say ''I squish every spider i see.'' They seem to forget the fact that just because an animal isnt cute and fuzzy doesnt mean it isnt an animal.... 
I think mosquitoes are a lot more ''icky'' than spiders.
I love tarantulas, but I prefer watching them than having em crawl on me hehe.
