Anna, I think I get the point you're trying to make, but LG didn't really come here to tell us his views about speciesism -- he said what he did in response to my question. I think you should have stated your views more respectfully.

LG, I hope I haven't provoked a flame war, but maybe you could clarify your position on speciesism a bit? What do you mean when you say you think the idea is ridiculous, and why do you feel that way? Many people feel that racism, sexism, poverty, etc., are "serious" issues and animal issues aren't serious. Since you're a vegan and don't think animals should be killed for any reason, I think it's obvious you don't believe that. So why shouldn't we call people speciesists when they place humans above nonhumans and single us out as being "special"? The word seems perfectly legitimate to me.
