Sure I do. I'm a speciesist :-)

I probably am too, but I don't much like it. I want to be a consciousness-ist.

Most humans are hypothetical, just like all AIs are. They haven't existed yet, and may not exist in the forms we imagine them. Much like MIRI is not recommending termination of any existing AIs, I am not recommending termination of existing humans.

I am merely pointing out that most of what I've read about FAI goals seems to apply to future humans as much or more as to future AIs.
