Undoubtedly, animals are less intelligent than us.

Animals can't talk (except for the parrot), read, deal with money, or be a scientist.

That does NOT make them inferior to us entirely.

The only way they are inferior to us is intelligence-wise.

I am frustrated and sometimes sick when people treat animals as entirely inferior just because they aren't as smart as we are.

1. We are the only animals that kill for fun.

Think about it!

We are intelligent enough to know what is for fun, yet cruel, and what is not-but we do it anyway.

An animal is not aware of what we are aware of (or should be aware of).

An animal never kills INTENTIONALLY for fun.

An animal can be playful and kill someone or another animal on accident.

Animals are like small children.

We were all small children who didn't know any better than to do things that were wrong.

We didn't MEAN to do it for fun.

We just didn't know any better.

It's the exact same for animals.

2. Animals are often kinder creatures than we are.

I have enough evidence to back this up.

Never make conclusions until you've found enough evidence.

There is more than enough evidence that there are more benevolent animals than benevolent humans.

Dogs! Cats! Even feral animals!

Sure, some animals are mean.

But not ALL animals are mean.

"Some" is NOT a synonym for "all."

3. Animals teach us lessons that we forget ourselves.

Animals are symbols in many stories.

A symbol is more than what it appears to be.

I despise it when people say that they don't like something or call it worthless just because it is about animals.

For example:

"Ugh, I hate the Lion King"'"I hate Bambi,"

"Why?"

"IT'S ABOUT ANIMALS!"

That's equivalent to saying that animated shows should be for children only.

HA!

Family Guy, American Dad, Archer, Futurama! Ring a bell?

Don't judge a book by its cover, and don't judge something for being different than you.

Read a book before you judge it. That's the whole point of reading!

Animals can literally or symbolically teach us lessons that we can be oblivious to learn.

What has The Lion King taught us?

What has Bambi taught us?

Sure, they are rated G movies, but they are for all ages.

Their primary themes are themes that the majority of children won't comprehend.

So to say that these are kids movies only is absolutely illogical.

These movies are for all ages, but the majority of children won't understand the messages until they are older.

Until you love an animal as well as the rest of nature, you have not appreciated the beauty of the life as a whole.
