One of President Biden’s two pet dogs; he is the first rescued dog to live in the White House. He has been attacked by the media repeatedly for biting secret service agents, even though the injuries they received were relatively minor and in one of the cases didn’t break the skin. This behavior is likely the result of a lack of training dealing with meeting new people. The media’s aggressive attacks over these incidents and ridiculous frequency of these types of stories popping up on certain news and social media platforms suggests that these companies who over advertise these stories, which have no real significance given no real injury was caused, have a Speciesism bias.
The companies that wrote these stories about Major the German Shepherd should be called out for doing so; for by writing stories like these they are promoting Speciesism and for drawing so much attention to stories like this that are not even worthy of the public’s time for this is not a significant incident for no real injuries were ever caused. It’s a major example of the Speciesism found in the news and social media industries. (The gif bellow is an example of the stereotype the media has created for Major and other German Shepherds, which in this case they portray as being aggressive, which is often not the case as the dog's temperament depends on how well they are trained.)

An old, extensive series of social norms and expectations that indicate what types of behaviors and social practices are and are not acceptable in various social situations. A majority of the rules employed in the modern properness system come from medieval times and were first created in Europe. There are different rules for males and females, regarding how they are to treat each other and behave in each other’s presences; what gender an individual identifies as determines which gender type of rules they are expected to follow. Many of the rules are out of date with times and tend to be quite biased against the poor, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities and other species.
The properness etiquette system is in urgent need of reform in order to make it more up to date with the times, more effective, and less biased against various populations.
