    Spiders can be pretty adorable.

    The Latrodectus genus doesn't really fall into that category though.

    Well that's not weird, I was brought up in an environment that encouraged exploration of nature so I've always been interested in insects and spiders and most living things.

    I grew up on a farm and I still squash bugs and arachnids with reckless abandon. There's a difference between fascination and adoration. :p

    Fascination and adoration are both states of mind that indicate an unrealistic or biased view of something. I have a scientific interest in nature and ecosystems and how they all fit together.

    A lot of people have a negative view of certain creatures. By not having that negative view and expressing my interest in those creatures I can be perceived as unusual.

    Would you think I was weird if I expressed an interest in kittens and puppies? (I also like dogs and cats but don't hold it against me.)

    Spiders are useful. They eat flies, though I'd wish they'd catch more mosquitos.

    As for driders, I've seen depictions of Lolth as a drider as well, though as everything concerning drow, that may well be fan-art. I suppose that since drow are matriarchal, the drider punishment is normally reserved for males. Females that fall from grace would normally just be killed, I suppose.

    Like spiderman is more famous than spidergirl.

    Depends on the level of interest. Insects are almost universally disliked, so any amount will set you apart from the norm.

    In contrast, cute mammals, such as kittens, are liked by the vast majority, so you'd have to be borderline obsessed to be considered weird.

    Either way, it's an observation, not a judgment. I'm entirely comfortable around weird people. :p

    Useful tip: If you accidentally swallow a fly, swallow a spider to catch the fly. Then swallow a bird to catch the spider. Then swallow a cat to catch the bird....

    ...but I don't know why you swallowed the fly; perhaps you'll die. :)

    As long as you don't step on the transmitter while a fly is anywhere near you. That's a lot worse than swallowing a fly.

    My answer to swallowing flies is: free protein.
    My problem with flies is usually that my eyes seem to be fly magnets. I can literally not bike a kilometer without getting one in my eyes.
