After all, chimpanzees are only human

Animal rights activists in Austria, who just happen to be human beings, are lobbying the Austrian courts to declare a certain chimpanzee to be a person.

As far as I know, no chimpanzees have lobbied either human or chimpanzee courts to be recognized as persons.

Aren't the human animal rights activists being a bit presumptuous to deign to claim to know what the chimpanzees want? Doesn't it suggest a presumption of superiority on the part of the humans?

And wouldn't that make them specieists?

Please, in the name of equality and equity, and plain-old down-home common sense, let the chimpanzees speak for themselves.

And let's put a stop to specieism.

Agree!!
We have too many "people" trying to run this world with these goofy ideas.
If God meant for them to be people, He would made them people in the beginning. He hasn't changed this world, the goofies are taking over His authority.
Oh, well. We will always have the nuts with their signs and parades.
