The Poi Rats mentioned that while their house was being shown, they had to be covered. I am appalled! They’re good rats. They’re lovely rats. Why should they have to be covered because there are some who are guilty of specism? I have decided that rat specism will be part of my campaign.
I will resolve to clean up rat hate speech
- Dirty Rat
- Rat Fink
- You little rat
- You’re a rat (meant in a negative sense)
- I don’t give a rat’s $#@&
These figures of speech will need to be monitored and cleaned up. People need to see how harmful these words are to our fellow creatures who happen to be rats.
Anyone who has ever lived with rats knows that they are very clean creatures. They are smart. They can be every bit as stubborn as a Siamese but do people insult Siamese cats? No! And I won’t allow that either!
Stand up for the rats of the world NOW! I will be adding rats to the anti hate specist acts when I get into office!
You are right on! I really think this specism needs to be discussed and not swept under the rug. Of course there was the guy in the human’s office who when he found out I am Siamese told them not to look at me right in the eyes because I would scratch their eyes out.

This is why you is going to win!!
I am standing up for the rats of the world! Hooray!
I agree with you 100% Chey! 🙂 Excellent points. Let’s stamp out specism and breedism!
You go Chey! Pfffffffffffft on specism.
Realtors make you do all kinds of stupid things when you show your house. I’m surprised they don’t cover the HUMANS with something. Oh, they just kick them out of the house.

We are against specism in any form, except we still think beans is weerd. Dat will neffur change. Oh, and some woofies are bad and need to be avoided, but dat’s not specist, dat is self preservation.
Whilst I think this is a valid argument and one that requires a lot of attention, I do call my baby brother Mao a stinky stripy poo head rat sometimes. Is that speciest? I don’t know. I am confused!
Wohooooo!! Smash Rattism, way to go! 🙂

Mom says she used to have a white rat! I never knew that … and she said he was very nice.
