    I think that every living creature is speciesist.

    I would eat the last tiger pair on earth if my child's life defended on It, safe in the knowledge that any sensible tiger would do the same to me.

    Do you have any recipes for tiger meat you can share? I would imagine it to be rather tough, given the exercise a tiger's muscles get and be better off in a stew.

    Would a recipe for tiger bread do?

    I wasn't aware that tigers ate bread.

    Mind you, everytime I see cat milk in the supermarket, I ponder over how much more difficult it must be to milk a cat, compared to a cow or a goat and the most puzzling of all is how they acquire puppy milk.

    While i find PETA a bit over the top at times and (like ER) in danger of putting people off their cause, I do agree with the idea behind it. We are all cut from the same cloth so to speak and,certainty mammals work the same way.
    It would be nice to see more care and respect given to animals in general...I hate hearing of cruelty cases.
    Changing the definition on a dictionary isn't necessary...as we already have the word mammals and,as far as I am aware what with my scant scientific knowledge, we all,animals and humans fall under this umbrella.

    Hello everyone, my name is V........... and I’m speciesist.

    I feel emotionally lighter already.

    Apparently you can adapt your usual lion meat recipe.

    I prefer cats to slugs and otters to hyenas. Does that make me speciesist?
    I am now fretting about yet another inadequacy...:(

    Another faction is the whimcists.

    They've already splintered! Splitters!!!
