(Huffington Post UK)   PETA would like you to remember that the Zerg have feelings too. For example, they generally like the feeling of their blades ripping open your chest as they feast on your organs   (huffingtonpost.co.uk) divider line 70

PETA should go spend some quality time with a genestealer.

So basically this is just a way for Blizzard to get some more news out about their Starcraft II expansion.

It's their nonsense like this that they push that causes PETA to get such a bad reputation and so much negative attention. Then again, even if they were consistently reasonable people, I still wouldn't stop eating delicious animals, and I still won't ever care how they lived or how they died. Really, I guess most people feel similarly, and that's probably why PETA acts so outlandish all the time. It's a feedback loop of crazy that can make a person's head spin.

The parody response to the campaign is pretty good

When the only part of the body that doesn't sound inherently dangerous is the "poop orifice", you know you're dealing with a nasty creature;

You're assuming that this was PETA and not people that work for or support Blizzard. Or just some kids that thought it would be funny.

Poe effect. Took me a bit to see this was satire.

Did not read the article, mostly because PETA does things stupid enough for it to seem possible. Fun times with Poe's Law, apparently.

I checked their website and there is a link to it, so maybe it is officially sanctioned by one of their chapters.

I still think it's attention whores glomming onto other attention whores. A symbiotic relationship going on, there.

But just as they warned last year that capturing Pokemon was actually indicative of a hatred of animals...

Sigh... Can we have a game where all we do is shoot numbnuts assholes from PETA? Bunch of farking attention whores.

That might be one of the few games they don't condemn. They have no problem with the willful slaughter of human polygons in Call of Duty or Battlefield, but the second you bring an animal into it, it's on!

PETA is a bigger troll.  The only people who support the WBC are family members of the leader (and not all of them).  PETA attracts anyone with mild brain damage such as movie stars.
 
2013-03-12 04:15:02 PM
Wow.  I seem to be alone here.

I'll never be accused of being a fan of PETA, but my first reaction was "Good on 'em for having a sense of humor."

You can shoot the O's too. that's so freaking awesome.

Another + for Google.

The first Starcraft did sort of touch on the idea that the Zerg were being manipulated... but they were still a malevolent force that would have overrun the universe on their own anyway.

Did anyone actually READ the damn flyer?  I'm no PETA fan, not by a long shot, but they weren't actually protesting Starcraft.  They were using it as a way to draw attention to actual things that are actually happening here on the actual Earth.  As far as PETA crap goes, this one was really one of the more palatable efforts.  It was one of the least douchey things I've seen them do.

I thought the article was satire at first.  Then I remembered that these are the nutters who insist that people think of fish as "sea kittens" so we'd have a harder time killing them. Then I find out that their official blog is called PETA FILES (seriously!).

I love animals, but I cannot see how anyone in their right mind can support this insane organisation.
