Should I feel bad - or does anyone actually care?

Today, there was a really confident fly in my room - it had way too much confidence. It was coming right up in my face.

Reaching for my nearest defence - a can of deodorant, I sprayed it. After a lot of effort - it was like deodorant wasn't made to kill it - it eventually gave up.

I had two friends with me. One justified my actions - the other thought I was cruel.

What do you think I was? Morally, is it okay to spray a fly with deodorant?

It did take a long time to pass away. They don't feel suffering though - so why would I be described as cruel?!

Opinions please, on this big moral debate!!

Personally, i would have done the same thing or just run out of the room until it comes out.:ahee: However, there are some people that will feel it is cruel, because they are part of nature, like us really. But don't feel bad, because everyone reacts differently to situations like this.

For all you know, the fly was suffering from a life-limiting illness. Perhaps it found life unbearable. You may have gifted it the sweet release of an endless dreamless sleep. Keep doing God's work.

Insects don't have pain receptors and some say they therefore can't feel pain, whereas some say they must have some sort of feeling like pain or else they wouldn't be able to respond to stimuli.
Either way, pain is more of an emotional response and do insects have a conscience? Probs not, who knows ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Next time, just open the window lol

Whilst I'm sure fly-kind will suffer the loss of it's bravest soldier, you've probably saved some other poor human from being pestered by the fly :yy:

Maybe it didn't like you. Flies don't like me.

I just think it's a bit of a waste of deodorant tbh when you could've smacked it down.
