To paraphrase Skylock in Merchant of Venice
Hath not a NOISE RECEPTOR hands, organs, dimensions senses, affections, passions?
Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as all mankind?
If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die?
And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
If we are like you in the rest, why do you not expect us to resemble you in that?
