The other day I was behind a bumper-sticker which read: Equal rights for all species.
My first thought was, had I run across a hitherto undetected sect of Jains, or was it some New Ager from Eugene?
My second thought was, really? E. coli? Mosquitoes? Malaria virus? Equal rights? Is that code for “no rights”? Or do the creatures have to be a certain size to qualify?
Did they think this one through?
