    PETA

    Post by CLAIRVOYANTdisease

    Okay, so normally when an animal rights group comes along, I'm one of the first to go 'I COMPLETELY AGREE!' although, I may not be the perfect candidate for such groups, not being a vegan or vegetarian.. so technically I do what PETA seem to hate... kill animals meaninglessly.. but still... PETA.. protection of animals rights... good on ya!

    Even when I hear ridiculous stories such as one of their celebrity spokeswomen, Olivia Munn, wearing leather boots at a campagin and PETA responding with a "This isn’t a leather campaign." well.. you gotta believe I'm gonna be a bit skeptical.

    But still, I supported them, because they're getting the message out! And thats the important thing.

    Until I heard about this...

    PETA's latest campaign is this...

    Spoiler:


    Really?! Reeeeeeeeally?!

    The holocaust on your plate?

    Those figures are shocking, yes.. especially when you think about how much of that meat is probably thrown away unneccisarily, or isn't actually eaten at all.. but really... comparing it to the holocaust?

    I was even more shocked to hear that they have used this campaign idea before! Back in 2003...

    For many years PETA has taken it to extreme measures to get their point accross, and usually using images and campaigns like this...

    "While I sympathize with PETA's aim—and am a member of PETA—I objected to this use of the Holocaust... The agony of animals arises from different causes from those of the Holocaust. Human beings do not hate animals. They do not eat them because they hate them. They do not experiment on them because they hate them, they do not hunt them because they hate them. These were the motives for the Holocaust. Human beings have no ideological or theological conflict with animals." Roberta Kalechofsky [Member of PETA]


    There seem to be a looooooooooot of websites dedicated to hating on PETA these days too.. seems like even the most heartfelt organisations can be corrupt these days...

    So what do you think, do you agree with PETA's methods? ... Would that make you stop eating meat?

    If that's the case why do Vegans spend so much time making tofu meats and other fake meats to eat?

    I dunno, why don't ya ask 'em? ^_^ If I stop eating meat, it'll be because I'm tired of it. Which I am! xD

    I did ask them. Their answer was about as helpful as that one.
    Well then, stop asking and just let them do what they want?

    No.

    Because organizations like PETA are trying to guilt trip me into doing things there way.

    Plus I live with a Vegatarian maniac who has stripped my house of all meat for years. So the only time I can eat it is if I buy it myself. So it's personal. Damn It!
    Ignore them. Guilt trips don't work on the intelligent! (Just made that up- it isn't true because feelings have nothing to do with intellect. I just like how it sounds :D Makes me feel like a smarty :D)

    Aww. No fair. That's how I'm going to be as an adult!
    Unless....you know, I'm too lazy to figure out what has meat and doesn't and just eat leftover beans everyday.

    But I hate beans too so that option is out.

    It depends on a case by case basis.

    Haha, smooth.

    Yeah...If you have kids, don't do that to them. Trust me. I wasn't being serious, like, at all in this convosation, but I will say my dad has been all vegetarian bonanza for years now, and he just looks sickly. He used to be a buff guy, but now he looks like he could be knocked over by a puppy. I know there's lots of reasons for people to be vegetarians, but whenever I think about it and how my dad looks, yeah...I just don't think it's as grand as people say it is. And he shouldn't be getting thinner, considering he does nothing all day, but he is.

    (That will probably be the only serious note I bring to the table! Not trying to dissuade you of vegetarianism, I honestly don't care and just like to have fun with a pointless argument because I know winning is not an option~ But! Personal experience has not been good)

    Oh no. That doesn't sound very good. Maybe he should go see someone?

    I think I'm too lazy to be a vegetarian :X But I applaud those who are!
