Great Ape Project Update
In a trustee court hearing on 24 April, the judge denied the request. She said that if she appointed a legal guardian for a chimp, then this might create the public perception that humans with court-appointed legal guardians are at the same level as animals.
This is an antithetical non sequitur. The point is that our fellow primate “animals” should be at a similar level to extraordinarily limited functioning humans. I’m sorry if this offends the human racists, but offense or lack thereof does nothing to alter reality.
