People are Animals Too!

We've all heard those who love animals defend their perceived rights with, "Animals are people too." This of course, if it is to be believed, would give animals the same human rights we all enjoy. There was even an article in Reader's Digest and The Economist where it was scientifically proven whales are people too. I cringe at that statement, but if it helps protect them from some whale blubber eating  indigenous person or some high rolling adventurist, I can see why perhaps you might make such an outrageous statement. Using the idea of "The ends justifies the means"  should always be used with extreme caution though.


It's a good thing and perhaps even a great thing to look at animals with such reverence and respect. I certainly would never want to harm an animal intentionally without a good reason. So what are those reasons? Self preservation, a need for food protein, protection from harming live stock all come to mind. In the past their skins and furs protected us, but thankfully, we don't require those products as much with the introduction of modern materials. 

So lets turn this around and with majesty declare, "People are animals too"!  So what does this mean? Aside from our furry tops, crotch regions and the odd hairy ass or back sections, we don't resemble them. Aside from birds a well trained dog or circus bear, we are the only ones who walk on two legs. And we are certainly not birds, though we do call the fairer sex, "Chick" from time to time. 

Then why would the statement, " People are animals too" be justified? Firstly, logically if you are to believe animals are people too, then if a=p,  then p=a. We all love our science, so to argue that point is blasphemy.

It's a good thing and perhaps even a great thing that animals would look at us with such reverence and respect. I am certain they would never want to harm us intentionally and without a good reason. So what are those reasons? Self preservation, a need for food protein, protection from harming their own all come to mind. In the past we were vulnerable to animal attacks but with human technologies we were able to protect ourselves and thankfully, animals don't need to eat us or our livestock  as much with the introduction of modern techniques and materials. 



Man certainly is not an animal in the pure sense of the word. And ignorantly suggesting that animals are human is an insult to both. We all live here with common purpose, with exception of the odd great person,  want like all the animals, desire self preservation, a need for protein and protection of their own. Even if we humans act like animals to attain that goal.
