    If corporations are people I don't see why chimps can't be as well.


    Taking a concept to it's logical end is rarely logical or relevant to the subject at hand.

    They are not people, this is just romanticization after seeing too many documentaries doctored from the perspective of an observer who is biased, inadvertently or not. If chimps are people, so are plants. And so are we. In reality no one is a person, but our own species should be treated preferably because it is our own.

    Somewhat sensationalist headline aside, well, here's the decision:

    Chimpanzees have no human rights: N.Y. court

    ALBANY, N.Y. (Reuters) - In the first case of its kind, a New York appeals court rejected on Thursday an animal rights advocate's bid to extend "legal personhood" to chimpanzees, saying the primates are incapable of bearing the responsibilities that come with having legal rights.

    A five-judge panel of the Albany court said attorney Steven Wise had shown that Tommy, a 26-year-old chimp who lives alone in a shed in upstate New York, was an autonomous creature, but that it was not possible for him to understand the social contract that binds humans together...

    They would have never been able to come with a sound argument to support them being people. The logistics if they were would also be an impossible to solve nightmare.

    On a personal note I fucking hate chimps. Least favorite animal period. They are disgusting, smell, are vindictive, mean, violent, and have no likeable qualities to them at all.

    Sounds like the human race to me. < Cmon cliche misanthropy is all the rage.

    I can't say I've met a chimp, ever to know.

    I just see the ones in the news and cinema, and there they are either endearing and witty, or they're maltempered monsters who bite off people's faces. (Well, plus there's that dude that got smart and took over the earth after the human race was extinguished.)
