Speciesism is systemic bias or personal prejudice that creates or enforces unequal ethical consideration of otherwise-equivalent interests and capacities between individuals of different species. In science fiction and fantasy settings, it is often used as a stand-in for more widely recognized forms of discrimination, such as racism .
Anthrochauvinism may be used synonymously or in reference to a more specific variety, which exclusively elevates humans and/or immediately-related species such as trans/post-humans and great apes.
Most forms of transhumanism oppose speciesism as concerned with speciated human descendents and revived and/or uplifted nonhumans, as well as environmentalism, and this is reflected in transhumanist projects and publications, such as the Transhumanist FAQ and IEET Rights of Nonhuman Persons program.
