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.

As much as I sympathise and agree with vegetarians, I really can't recall that many people seriously comparing animals to plants.

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'.
