To End Speciesism

From the time we are young, most humans are influenced to view certain species as worthy of care and compassion and others as unworthy, all based on our preferences. Intentionally or not, parents, teachers, the media, and other influences send children the message that puppies and kittens are “friends,” cows and chickens are “food,” and rats and mice are “pests.” Most children are also taught that human desires, needs, and interests always top those of any other species.

As a result, we learn to ignore our own conscience, which tells us that it’s wrong to mistreat others. We convince ourselves that we have the “right” to imprison animals in laboratories, experiment on them, and kill them because it might help humans. We tell ourselves that it’s OK to eat ice cream made from cow’s milk because our desire for dessert outweighs a mother cow’s right to nurse and care for her calf. That it’s OK to steal sheep’s wool for sweaters and scarves and ducks’ feathers for pillows. That keeping orcas in barren tanks for money and “entertainment” is acceptable. Humans use speciesism to try to justify every kind of cruelty imaginable. This is cruel and unacceptable, we have not right to mistreat animals in any way. Just because you are more intelligent or you believe that you are more superior than your friends or family, does that mean you have the right to make them suffer or kill them? Same with animals.
