Why I am not keen on "animal rights."

Apart from the whole anthropomorphic fallacy of it all, I think that with all the problems in the world, and all the real needs of human beings, focusing on animal rights is a waste of energy and effort and seriously misguided. I do think that animals should be treated humanely, but worrying about the "rights" of say, silkworms over other matters? I think it shows a real internalized misanthropy and general unawareness.
