: Since we are all animals and not plants, plants' rights will be violated because they have no voice to speak for them. How fair is it to deny a plant it's rights becuase it is mute? Is this as ludicrous to you as your assertion is to me? Maybe you need to spell out the justification for claiming you are an animal. I am not. The only right an animal has is to not be killed for the pleasure of men.

Plants do not feel pain. Plants do not have a central nervous system. Animals do. That is at the heart of the matter. Pain and suffering.
