Would you say that you are more sensitive towards animals or people? What is the reason for your choice? I would have to say that I'm more sensitive towards animals because they are innocent and have basically no rights compared to us humans.

I'd say I'm more sensitive to animals. I think it's a combination of the fact that they are helpless and need us but also because they don't judge. They are there for us even if we look like hell or we're in a bad mood. They will come up to us and still want to be with us no matter what. They depend on us and how we take care of them where as humans can for the most part tell us where to stick if they don't want to hear it or tell us to shove off. Animals can't and we need to realize that and take care of them appropriatly.

I get very upset to see any animal abused. Only humans are capable of that.

I am more sensitive towards animals for the same reason. They are helpless and innocent and they don't have the same advantages we have. All they can do is follow instinct and defend themselves in the best way they can. And with domestic animals, they depend solely on us. If a person gets hungry, they can cook or open the firdge and find some food or buy some food. An animal cannot do that, they depend solely on us to feed them and give them water.

I am sensitive towards both because we're all created equally even animals.

I am more sensitive towards animals because they are just innocent creatures. Like you said they have no rights and no say so over anything. Some of them are put into abusive homes and can't help themselves get out of it because their helpless. I love animals and wish to be a vet one day.

I am more sensitive towards animals, especially domesticated one, as they are so innocent and so very helpless without us. The wild do okay unless man has interfered with their habitat.

I am more sensitive to animals, as there is no body that is there for their rights. They only know how to love, and they need a lot of love. They are not greedy, selfish, or mean.

More sensitive toward animals because they some times care more for us than people. People act some times without senses and they don't care each other this days, but thinking positively I will hope to find people that act more like humans.

I would definitely say I am more sensitive to animals, they give unconditional love, are more trustworthy, protective towards their young (don't abuse or misuse them), don't sell out their family for gain. I could go on and on but I think you get the picture.

Having been a nurse for many years I would have sensativity towards those in my care, but my great passion is animals and have a home full of them. So would have to say animals as they need someone to "speak" for them as they are unable to do it for themselves.

be careful not to violate the rules. The fact that you just posted something irrelevant to the conversation could be considered a violation. Just warning you so you don't get the boot..

I am sensitive to mistreated people and animals. The ones suffering because of circumstances that are beyond their control. Circumstances that come with living in this world. However, for some reason I gravitate more towards animals. Maybe it's because they understand you in their own simple way, they look at the world simply - we don't know how but there is something sweet and pure about that.

I am equally sensitive to animals and people. I treat animals the same as I do with people - with passion,care ,and respect. They were made the same way just like us human so i don't see any reason for them to be treated like something of no value. Because when we die our bodies rot just as the animals do. Just as how we have a purpose here, they have too. If not then why should God waste his time creating them.

Actually I know some people who would jump in front of a car to save a dog but probably not to save a person! I feel bad for tortured animals, but I'm more sensitive towards people. I know some pets who have "the life" and even though I didn't spoil my dog that much, I feel pets have it easy (except the small percentage that are abused) because people serve them. I wish someone would serve me like that. I love dogs and think they are sooo cute, but when my dog started getting sick we put him to sleep. On the other hand, my friend paid a few 1000$ for her dog b/c he needed treatment! I don't think my wallet can handle that, plus the animal is only supposed to live 15 years or less and people are trying to stretch that out longer and longer. Yet if it was a person needing the treatment, of course I'd support paying 1000s for it. Maybe that makes me seem insensitive to pets, but really I love them - they are only meant to live so long!
