kronicfeld: Zyme: they are notorous for taking animal from adoption centers and euthanizing them.

No, they are not deliberately adopting and killing animals. Their euthanization rate is a consequence of their operating shelters of last resort. They are taking in animals from other shelters that those other shelters cannot place and which they have already decided to euthanize. Sometimes PETA shelters are still able to place some of those animals, even though the prior shelters couldn't, in which case they're saving the animals from the chopping block. The ones being euthanized would have been euthanized by their prior shelters anyway.

I am not, nor will I ever be, a PETA member, supporter or donor. But this is one lie that needs to be dispelled, because it diverts attention from areas of legitimate criticism.


It's still legitimate criticism because of PETA's absolute stance when it comes to everyone else. Were PETA about MINIMIZING rather than ELIMINATING the suffering elsewhere, and didn't vilify their targets so vociferously, maybe they wouldn't deserve the shiat they get for being hypocritical farktards.

The shelters in Washington State are "no-kill" shelters, and when you adopt from them, you are required to sign a form saying that you won't de-claw your cats, give them away, or drop them off to a PETA shelter.  Lots of places manage to operate no-kill shelters.  The fact that PETA is willing to euthanize any animals at all, regardless of their health, makes them hypocrites.

Lost Thought 00: anti


To be more accurate they are anti domestication of any kind they are notorous for taking animal from adoption centers and euthanizing them. Many centers have banned PETA from adopting over this.

vygramul: DeaH: Do you really think the Obamas are going to use grocery store eggs? They are the First Foodie Couple. Factory farming of chicken eggs is inhumane and cruel, and the eggs taste like crap compared to a fresh, local egg. But screw PETA for being against all eggs, one of the tastiest, best source of protein when the chicken is raised right. What do they want to do? Let the chickens run free in the wild?

Besides, eating eggs is eating aborted babies. Chicken babies. Tasty, tasty chicken babies.


Naaah. If they haven't been fertilized, they're just the chicken-baby's life support units.

F*ck PETA and f*ck plastic eggs that are probably made by children in sweatshops and will end up in a landfill anyway. But now I'm hoping that the WH uses non-factory farmed eggs. Because f*ck industrial chicken farms, too.

PETA... those farking hypocrites regularly kill animals and have a body count in the ten's of thousands. It's like if Operation Rescue were to run an abortion clinic.

Richard C Stanford: Oh PETA, why are you such idiots?
/There's some girl at my school who occasionally wears a PETA shirt. I'm considering going up to her and saying "hey, People for Eating Tasty Animals, I'm a member to!".


OMG did you just make that up or is that from something? LOL. You should get into stand-up!

PETA is offended.

In other news, grass is green and water is wet.
