Spider got stungunned...

This was just a situation I found myself in similar to when Mr. W says he keeps getting linked over to "squishy spider things" from "awesome spider things". It was a youtube video of a guy using a stungun on a little spider and then making horrible noises with a terribly annoying squeaky laugh. A guy with the chick magnet net handle icetman123 commented " holy fucking shit. Its a spider chill your tits. Its not a dog or a cat but a bug. Calm down. There are billions more out there."
I responded with "Yeah, there's a billion more people out there. So let's just kill people for fun, right? What makes spiders any more or less important?"
And then the guy decides to pm me with a shitstorm of dumbassery. The transcript is below.
"Are u fucking kidding me kid. Who the hell would compare humans to bugs. Are you that stupid? So what you are basicly saying is that you have never killed a bug in your life? And for the answer. Spiders live for what about 3 weeks? They're gonna die a hell of a lot faster than humans. And humans are meant to kill animals. If you care so much about bugs and animals. Never eat meat. Never eat vegitables cuz you're eating the animals food and just kill yourself so the animals and magits and fly can eat you. Or you can just stfu and not watch stuff on youtube that you dont want to see. Either way you are a full blown idiot to even compare a spider to a human."
"First off, thanks for pm'ing me to call me stupid and not make any logical argument in your message. Yes, I kill things, insects and arachnids included. I kill things so I can eat them. I kill things in a "it's you or me" situation. Killing anything for entertainment is morally reprehensible. I can't imagine a reason you could assume that spiders don't feel pain any differently than a human. There is nothing stupid about comparing humans to bugs. We share a common evolutionary ancestor. Saying that humans are so vastly different and an improvement from bugs is ridiculous. It's like a Japanese man saying that Africans are inferior. Just because you draw an arbitrary line in the sand and say "Things that are at least THIS similar to me are ok. If you're more different than this, you don't deserve to have any rights." doesn't mean a damn thing.
Thanks for thinking killing and torturing creatures is ok. I personally hope a centipede crawls into your bed tonight. You're not afraid of centipedes, are you?"
"Ok so your comeback just totally just fell on itself. "japanese man say that africans are inferior" read that again. Its human aginst human. Not a little tiny insect vs a human. And i ate bugs when i was in marine training. And to fight for someones freedom like your's. Just makes me laugh. So through all this i would love to say have a nice day you little internet pussy."
(for some reason my next reply got deleted, so I'm paraphrasing here)
"Just because you played the "I'm in the military" card, it doesn't mean that you can't be wrong. Society is ridiculous to think that certain things (the military, religion) are, for whatever reason, not aloud to be pointed at when something (or everything) they say and/or do is blatantly wrong. To get back on the subject you are trying to steer from, yeah, human against human. Species are not hard and fast distinction, just blurry lines, constantly changing, or do you not know how evolution works. And I have no quarrel with you eating bugs. I don't know why that's even relevant."
Anyway, I just thought I'd come post this here cause I figured you guys would get it. I've only just started becoming a little more outspoken with my views since I read an article about challenging religion. It was an atheist meeting about whether or not it's even worth it to argue with religious people about religion. They asked how many of the atheists were religious and changed their views because of a good argument someone made. A handful of people raised their hands, including the speaker and the speaker said "I think we were worth it."

| Do you mean am I homeless or is the military dude homeless? If I'm getting ragged on here, of all places, I'm going to crawl my nerdy ass into a hole and die. |
You said you eat arachnids in a "it's me or them" have to eat kind of way.
Most people would eat like, chicken or something.
So if you're eating insects in order to survive it sounds like you have no money or family support.
