    Its unbelievable the amount of times I have heard people say you cant compare animals to humans at all- they have nothing in common (Even though that is a lie,animals and humans have plenty in common) but then these very same people then go onto compare animals to PLANTS. Yes that's right PLANTS, a living orgasm who doesn't even have a brain, the ability to feel, or even be self aware in any way.

    Animals have a lot more in common with humans than they do with plants. So if in your world you can't compare animals to humans(A life form that is also a animal by science) then how the hell can you compare animals to plants?

    Normally people compare animals to plants when they are attempting to make vegans/vegetarians look like hypocrites but it just doesn't work.

    Yes you can compare them. Maybe talking to the wrong people.

    That's one of the main arguments people use against vegetarianism.

    'You're a vegetarian because you don't like killing animals for food? What about all the plants that are killed for your salad you hypocrite'.
