I didn't respond to this part before:
As well as that, why do you think life is unfair? Is it inherent in the nature of biology/physics of our universe?
If you assert a force on an object it will assert an equal one in response, but unless the forces are acting on the same body or balanced, they will not cancel each other out. At least, that's what Newton's third law claims. An object's resistance to changes in motion (inertia,) increases with mass.
Most of what Humans consider to be unfair, isn't a result of physical laws in the universe, but of Human consciousness and behaviour. The closer you get to Human behaviour, the more personalised things become.
Humans are primarily interested in what is fair/unfair for themselves or whom they've bonded with in some way, (and this varies in degrees.) So most of the focus is on Humanity and the species that remind Humans the most of themselves and/or their offspring and that they've in some cases partially adopted (like dogs and cats.) Other stuff feels relatively irrelevant even if it seems unfair. Even on a higher biological level (eg: other lifeforms on Earth.) Unless the Human can relate to or idealise them in some way.
For example if I consider this parasitic barnacle
The presence of the parasite retards the development of the crab's gonads, which eventually atrophy. The parasite causes a male crab to develop certain feminine characteristics including the broadening of its abdomen, while in females, the abdomen becomes narrower and the pleopods degenerate. The eggs of the parasite develop in the externa and both male and female crabs carry these eggs around, secured under their abdomen, in the way that female crabs normally care for their own brood (but males never do). If the parasite is experimentally removed from the host, female crabs will usually regenerate their ovaries, but in males, sex change takes place and they develop ovarian tissue.
I can relate to it in some ways, because I have some similar desires. Likewise somewhat with the female of this bird species
based on certain attractions:
A third type of male was first described in 2006; this is a permanent female mimic, the first such reported for a bird. About 1% of males are small, intermediate in size between males and females, and do not grow the elaborate breeding plumage of the territorial and satellite males, although they have much larger internal testes than the ruffed males. Although the males of most lekking bird species have relatively small testes for their size, male ruffs have the most disproportionately large testes of any bird.
This cryptic male, or "faeder" (Old English "father") obtains access to mating territories together with the females, and "steals" matings when the females crouch to solicit copulation. The faeder moults into the prenuptial male plumage with striped feathers, but does not go on to develop the ornamental feathers of the normal male. As described above, this stage is thought to show the original male breeding plumage, before other male types evolved. A faeder can be distinguished in the hand by its wing length, which is intermediate between those of displaying males and females. Despite their feminine appearance, the faeders migrate with the larger 'normal' lekking males and spend the winter with them. The faeders are sometimes mounted by independent or satellite males, but are as often "on top" in homosexual mountings as the ruffed males, suggesting that their true identity is known by the other males. Females never mount males. Females often seem to prefer mating with faeders to copulation with normal males, and normal males also copulate with faeders (and vice versa) relatively more often than with females. The homosexual copulations may attract females to the lek, like the presence of satellite males.
But I don't want to be either species because I'm attracted to Humans not the birds, or crabs (also because the female of that bird species don't take on a male sex role ever, although maybe they want to but can't express that.) Likewise I shared knowledge about the parasitic barnacle with some people I know who want to be feminised, so one person responded with '
god I wish that were me.
' obviously they don't really
, because they don't want to be a crab, they just want to be female.
The Human mind is kind of weird though because it can develop sexual fantasies based on physiology it doesn't have, but that other animals do have. Almost like it gets ahead of itself in terms of evolution that way. Here's another example:
Seahorses have an ovipositor for introducing eggs into the brood pouch of the male, who carries them until it is time to release the fry into a suitable situation in the open water.
Some Humans also like to fantasise about ovipositors and being impregnated by them (too 18+ to link example.) Far more common though are sexual fantasies that incorporate feline/canine mating habits since people have greater exposure to those animals and they are also mammals. The former fantasy has gained in popularity though, because I guess exposure has also increased via alien media stuff and such. These fantasies tend to involve anthropomorphisations of course, though they don't always.
Differences are seen in what is fair/unfair depending on how much weight a person gives it according to their own needs/desires. To continue with the above example:
I wake up in the morning sometimes, already frustrated that i'm not physically a fox this morning. I'd even go so far as to say that I could change into a fox but I wouldn't be able to talk or type or do anything other than what foxes can, I'd take it, run off to the forest and call my life as a human 'time served'...
But that's more answering the question of 'is why life is seen as unfair shared among people?' The answer to that is no, but then since we know certain groups of people are more likely to identify with anthropormphisations and animals
you could argue that that too is inherent, just atypical. The closer you are to your ideal self, the more fair you probably think things are.
But if fairness = balance, then it won't be on a Newtonian physics level and every level removed from it. Things can be, but usually they are not.
