Speciesism is the belief that humans are superior to other forms of life, such as animals, thus granting them rights and privileges above other forms of life. In various fiction it can denote the belief in superiority of one species over all others, i.e. believing humans to be superior to alien species (as in some Star Wars media) or members of a species believing that other species, humans included, are inferior (i.e. the Decepticons in Transformers).
