Morm, turning down even a chance at sex to have a humorous avatar...I mean hell if that is the choice you are willing to make okay, but if this (hrhr) blows up in your face then you made a terrible decision.
the reason they do not get rights is because we are bigger and better, we get to enslave them; if someone bigger and better comes from outer space to eat us you will hear no complaints from me! I do not buy into the whole biblical crap about "dominion over animals", I just do not empathize very much; obviously other people do...to the comparison to humans, I also think that extra care for disabled or resources spent on the comatose and the like (if we do not have the resources to spend as a whole, as a race) are pretty silly...like I said it does sound like a good area to be involved in debating, lots of room to look for eloquent arguments better than my "fuck empathy" haha
well if it's okay to slaughter a pig, non human, why should a human who is missing key human traits be granted higher rights? That said, why should dolphins and other self aware animals like that NOT be granted rights like ours?
His masters was a fucking sham- do Aristotles observations still apply? Answer: YES. NO FUCKING KIDDING
