There's a court case for chimps to be legally humans, but no court case for the pigmy-mouse lemur?

I can't wait til people start making Youtube videos about how chimps are poorly represented in video games.

I beg to differ.

Donkey Kong is a gorilla. Are you saying all simians look the same to you?

Diddy Kong is a chimp.

I was talking with my professor about a week ago about the possibility of in twenty or thirty years from now people looking at apes in zoos and wondering how they could possibly have treated those people that way.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

So you're ready to give them the right to vote, drive, receive an education, get married, hold a job, collect social benefits, run for public office yada yada yada?

That was a great tightrope walk at the end.

I wonder what the risk of a spontaneous face-ripping would be (assuming most of us never voluntarily give them piggyback rides).

I think it's fair to say that not being human somewhat precludes you from a lot of the activities that typically only humans engage in. Generally 'person' being a synonym for 'human,' I don't think that they can really be considered 'people'. However, we already recognise higher cognitive function as rationale for protecting species, so I guess just carry on improving on that.

I'd also like to add that the analogies to human civil rights are really dickish.

You say that like a chimp could pass a driving test or get elected to office.

if ******ed people have rights, why not chimps? cos they're hairy? so are persians.




persians shouldn't have rights.

Obligatory "Chimps aren't monkeys!" post.

This is kinda dumb- They definitely should be treated humanely in research and protected to the extent that they are endangered...but they are not humans, and in case anyone idealizes animals...chimps are major assholes- infanticide, genocide, organized warfare- they got it all.

They can join dolphins in the "Dickish species humans love and are close-ish to us in intelligence" category.

Persians? I don't think it's been called Persia since the Ottoman Empire.

But then if you said 'Iranians' the racist subtext to your joke would be more obvious I guess. Nice try.

We elect dead people. Not sure if you drive or not but chimps would do a better job than a fair amount of people do.

Once I was a the zoo staring the misfit chimp in the corner over to the far end mean while the others were having a blast on thier man made playground when all of a sudden he makes this motion with his arm at this point I figured he was jacking off but what I didn't expect was the motion of his hand leading up to his nose then slowly licking it. At the end of the day I know he was happy.

Actually, surely by this logic, the 'chimps are people' logic, many of them should be locked up. I mean, they hardly abide by the laws of the land.

Hahah, actually though.

I don't think rights are exclusive to people, but the big factor is, have they asked for them? If an animal can understand its own suffering and somehow ask to be freed, then sure, I'd say they at least have a right to be left alone. But, unless some chimp tomorrow signs "I want only to be left to my own devices, please free me etc" I'm gonna have to say no go on their rights. Sorry chimps, but I've seen the way you behave.

All the great apes are my favorite. We are the best.
Gorillas are nicer than chimps, I say they should get rights if chimps get rights.

Yah I know, lots of them do. My point is, none of them have revealed anything so profound. There is yet to be evidence that they are fully aware of their situation or that they wish for something else. Certainly it seems possible, but I'm skeptical.
