i cant speak for anyone else obviously but i think that when people say they hate the fish, they mean that they hate that the fish has been so unfortunate as to have been created. this is my opinion as for the dyed fish, parrots on their own (undyed) i know very little about so cant say what i think of them.
like i said i know little about them but if its true that they are being bred to have deformities and not be able to function properly then the issue is again not with the fish - the fish may be lovely. but by buying them you are "encouraging" the trade.
with dyed fish it is the same. no, the cannot pick up a needle and dye themselves, but buying them, though it is not their fault, only enables more fish to suffer the same ordeal. it is just such a shame that this has happened to these fish, and such a shame that there is no long term solution for these individuals as buying them and caring for them will only make it wore long term, and not buying and caring for them leaves them in pet stores that likely dont care about them, otherwise they wouldnt be selling dyed fish in the first place
