The following is a quote regarding "Equality" from Micheal Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma, also quoting Peter Singer's Animal Liberation.

"The moral idea is that everyone's interest ought to receive equal consideration, regardless of "what they are like or what abilities they have.'"

He then proceeds to outline Singer's argument that being "speciest" is the morally equivalent being racist. Is this something people agree with, or an obvious strawman?
