Over time, the original term, Pit Nutter, has been shortened to simply Nutter. Like the original term, Nutter embodies the same meaning: “The hallmark trait of the pit nutter is their unwillingness to accept the genetic heritage of the pit bulldog (It’s all how you raise ‘em!) or their inability to see the death and destruction their pit bulldogs create as anything other than collateral damage that the rest of society must absorb so that the pit nutter can enjoy the freedom of owning a killing machine.”
In 2013, however, the term “Nutter” sharpened to distinguish the purveyors of untruthful pit bull myths. In a June new release, “It’s Time for the Pit Bull ‘Recall’ Too,” attorney Kenneth Phillips states the distinction, “Unfortunately, pit bull lovers have neglected the problem for too long. Worse, they have alienated the general public by failing to denounce the “nutters” who spread misinformation about the members of this breed, which generally are not “nanny dogs,” service dogs, or rescue dogs.”
Some Nutters are intelligent, some are not, while others are mindless drones, circulating false myths about the pit bull breed because they have been directed to (See: Best Friends Animal Society). The primary demographic of Nutters are Caucasian women. Frequently young women of the child-bearing years (18 to 30-years old) with a natural draw to “mother” or “rescue” just about anything, in this case stockpiles of unwanted pit bulls that continuously flood U.S. open admission shelters.
