Do We Have This One?... oh, and I am open to title suggestions.

There are perspectives associating morality with humans and only humans, as if they have risen above the depravity of their animal ancestors and formed something very different.

Different, however, does not mean better, and some perspectives expressed by media take that ball and run the other way with it.

Meet Reverse Anthropocentrism, the belief expressed by humans that humans are really more vile than other species, whether animals or aliens. Whether or not this includes the humans saying so is up for debate.

(And yes, I know this is supposed to be the tentative definition of Humans Are Bastards, but there is discussion in TRS about changing that, and so if we go ahead with said change this is where the examples relating to the previous definition would go.)
