A recent post by Lulee about how dolphins are the second most intelligent species on Earth has got me thinking. Are Dolphins smarter than humans with special needs? If the answer is yes, then we will either have to seriously redress the way we treat dolphins, or the way we look at the retarded. Some of you may be sceptical of the comparison raised here, and I understand your concerns, I mean one of them is just a warm blooded mammal that loves fish, and the other is a Dolphin. (Heyo!)
How acceptable is it that we have these animals performing tricks, jumping through hoops, and acting like imbeciles, when they could be used to create porn movies instead! I mean these are creatures that commit suicide, gang rape, and murder for sport, These are all the best attributes of humanity!
So unless we are willing to horde the retards into pens and have them perform for our amusement, maybe we should focus on bringing Dolphins democracy instead.
