Aye. There's the rub. How you know that? Just 'cause they got no CNS? Feels presumptuous to me. I got me a little Mimosa fella who I pet every day and he hugs me back. Can I eat him as a vegan?

We got an agreement. I throw a little salad dressing on him. ... He forgives me. ... Oh and his limbs always seem to regrow bigger than before.

Serious question?
Yep, I don't think animal life is inherently more valuable than plant life. I know as animals we relate to other animals more. But I've never understood why vegetarians/vegans pay no mind to the lives of the plants they consume, if preservation of life is a goal.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

That is it, I vote that eating plants and animals is immoral, from now on we will eat fungi.

I prefer prescitarians, they're far more reasonable and sometimes, you gotta admire an arbitrary dividing line.
