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.

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.
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!".
