About

Pitbulls vs. Toddlers, also known as Pit Bulls Attacking Toddlers, refers to a series of memes that present pit bulls as a dog breed that is inherently dangerous for toddlers or children and is prone to attacking them for little to no reason, many of which reference statistics on real-world fatal dog attacks that often involve pit bulls. The memes, launched by the 2018 #PitbullDropOff hoax hashtag campaign, maintained a notable presence on iFunny before achieving virality on TikTok and other platforms in 2022. The viral debate is also prevalent on Reddit, typically whenever a pit bull-related post is made.

Origin

In May 2018, the hashtag campaign and internet hoax "#PitBullDropOff" began to gain traction on Twitter in which people claimed to be adopting pit bulls and directly taking them to kill shelters. The discussions regarding the #PitbullDropOff hoax on 4chan also led to the creation of various memes related to the notion that pit bulls are an inherently violent and dangerous breed that specifically seeks out toddlers and children to maul.

On December 20th, 2018, iFunny[1] user TurdFurgisonXXL_2016 posted an anti-pitbull meme to the website, gathering 11 smiles in over two years (seen below).

Pitbulls and pugs are the ONLY breeds of dogs I do not like, because they are both represent the worst excesses of selective breeding.

For pugs, selective breeding mutated them into horrific abominations because humans thought it would be "cute," harming the dog in the process. Also they're Nazis.

For pittbulls, selective breeding mutated them into horrific murder machines because humans thought it would be "cool," harming thousands of humans in the process.

In either case humans were soo preoccupied with whether or not they could, they never stopped to consider whether they SHOULD.

Any animal can be friendly. Nobody's saying all pitbulls are baby eating slaughterhouse terrors, just like all chihuahuas aren't annoying pieces of shit and so on so forth.

But they do have a slight temperament. Nobody would be surprised if a lion nips someone, it's a fucking lion, that's its temperament. It takes a good trainer to help keep them under control.

Bulls tend to be violent, and part of that is DUE to the stereotype, but it's also a little bit innate.
