    Talking PETA is human abuse

    The other day I was driving with Rog 'n Re and we saw a ridiculous billboard on the highway depicting a fat, deformed mutant child eagerly chomping down on a gargantuan cheeseburger large enough to make the Hardee’s Monster Burger curtsey with respectful reverence like the limp-wristed girlish burger it is compared to this mighty beef behemoth. The text on the billboard said that feeding kids meat is child abuse. Wait—what? No, my eyes weren't playing tricks on me. It actually did say "Feeding kids meat is child abuse". I had to do a quick WTF double-take as we drove by, and all I had time to notice was a URL on the bottom of the billboard for goveg.com.

    Now up to this point I had thought that PETA was the only group out there completely insane about this sort of thing, and I was worried that there was some other equally loony organization crusading for the rights of already-dead animals that were on my plate; but after going home and Googling the billboard, I was relieved to learn that PETA was in fact behind it. I'd be worried if there was more than one insane organization like that out there. PETA is bad enough.



    I've got no problem with vegetarians – if you want to eat nothing but leaves and tree bark, go right ahead. It's not bothering me at all. But don't try to tell me what I can and can't eat. Hell, even if you want to put up a billboard promoting vegetarianism and recommending that people consider it, because after all, animals are cute, even the big dumb smelly stupid ones that you can hunt with a hammer like cows, that's totally cool with me. But the second you call me a Nazi or the Antichrist because I eat meat, or say I’m an abuser of children because I buy a kid a burger, that's when you've taken the first bullet train straight into Batshitzania. As should come as no surprise, PETA happens to be headquartered in Batshitzania, and most of its members have taken up permanent residence there as well.

    Clearly this billboard is the result of a simple misunderstanding because PETA is stupid and doesn't know what "abuse" is. Abuse is defined on dictionary.com as:


    1. To use wrongly or improperly; misuse: abuse alcohol; abuse a privilege.

    2. To hurt or injure by maltreatment; ill-use.

    3. To force sexual activity on; rape or molest.

    4. To assail with contemptuous, coarse, or insulting words; revile.



    I don’t see anything about giving your children a well-balanced, nutritional diet listed in there. However, one almost, almost might get the idea that NOT giving your children a well-balanced diet and leaving them weak, frail and malnourished because you've decided eating one of the four basic food groups is "evil" might just fall slightly under that definition.

    I understand that they have a message they want to get across, namely "meat is bad". But making up insane bullshit that has no bearing on reality isn't going to help get that message across. So I've decided to come up with a new line of billboards that still clearly communicate PETA’s anti-meat message, but actually DO illustrate real abusive situations. Now, these may be a bit extreme, but you can't tell me that stuff like this doesn't happen every single day. Here's my new suggested line of billboards:



    or



    or maybe



    and definitely




    I think these examples are far and away superior illustrations of the oppressive beefocracy that has run this country for too long. I think we all "know someone", that being someone other than ourselves *wink*, who got a little lonely and desperate at scout camp and—well, you know. I think even your old Aunt Mabel who has goes to church every Sunday and has never in her life seen an R-rated movie can do the simple math in THAT little equation. See, these examples are more true to LIFE. That’s what I’m talking about.

    Oh, and another thing: I was doing some research on the PETA website and I came across another billboard featuring THIS alluring vixen:



    If of course by "alluring vixen" I mean "nasty goat-faced slattern who looks like she was playing the part of the ugly piñata being beaten with the ugly stick by the ugly birthday boy waiting for the ugly candy that probably tastes like cough syrup to come out". I mean, for fuck’s sake, is that hair on her upper thighs or some kind of rash? I don’t NEED meat to cause me impotence, all I have to do is look at this billboard and I’m hopelessly flaccid for weeks. I’ve heard vegetarians argue that ceasing meat consumption will clear up your skin and make you look healthier. And if that’s true, you mean to tell me THIS is the best PETA can come up with? THIS was the pinnacle of their Vegetarian Model Search? After seeing that, I’ve resolved to never eat another vegetable again. Thanks, PETA!

    A well balanced meal does not NEED meat.

    I have taken three college-level nutrition classes, and I learned that you certainly can do fine with a vegetarian diet, that Americans generally eat too much protein, and that meat should be a smaller part of our diets, but I take exception to this stupid billboard.

    I have known vegetarians whose children wanted meat, and so the kids got meat.

    But I am married to a man who grew up with vegetarian parents who would not buy him meat, so with his allowance he bought ... meat. He collected McDonald's burger cartons and Coke cans in his room as an act of defiance and spent lots of time at friends' houses eating hot dogs. My theory is that being raised with these dietary restrictions has made him a less healthful eater than he otherwise would've been.

    Kids do need lots and lots of protein, and I think sitting in front of the TV and going to schools that don't encourage physical exertion are just as complicit as diet in childhood obesity. And where poor nutrition for kids is concerned, I'll bet my burger-lovin' ass that it's not meat that's the big problem. Try candy bars and sodas--crap with no nutritional value at all and lots of harmful stuff in it.

    I hate PETA. I don't disagree with all of their views, but I don't respect their methods.

    One thing I wonder about is if PETA managed to convince everyone to go veg what would happen to the animals they claim to love so much?

    I'm not sure about Peta. They do an awful lot of good for animals used for food, getting them better quarters and conditions. And then they do stuff like this that I'm convinced is viral marketing...pissing people off so that they are on the tips of everyone's lips all the time, it's free p.r. when they are outrageous like this, because it gets under so many people's skin. So I dunno. Coincidentally that humongous beef recall earlier this year (largest one ever) was caused by film taken at a packing plant by an investigator working for Humane Society of the U.S. So they, along with ASPCA do many of the same things PETA does, but PETA has a talent for this kind of thing in particular, that the others don't do.

    53 billion chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, cattle, and sheep are killed each year for food. If this all suddenly stopped today, some of them might get adopted, some of them would die.

    But there would not be the 53 billion needed to be bred for next year, or the year after, or the year after and so on, there would be a huge drop in greenhouse gases, water pollution, soil erosion, and energy expenditures, and the world would be a cleaner, better place.

    Aside from that, it's absurd that people revere their dogs, cats, horses, and parrots while eating other sentient species. It's cognitive dissonance. There is a better way and I applaud PETA for recognizing that. If you don't like PETA, fine, but you can stop eating animals anyway.

    I had no idea cows and chickens were SELF AWARE. That's what sentience means.

    There's a better way than factory farming animals for profit.. if everybody raised their own animals, it would be better for the planet. But, that won't happen.

    I don't think man was meant to live by veggies alone. I don't eat much meat,but love fish. Have no intention of giving it up. I wear leather shoes and support my no-kill shelter in several ways. Don't feel a bit guilty. It works for me.
    Peta has gone too far. They are losing-not gaining -support by stunts like this.

    My nephew is a vegan and since doing so he lost weight and looks really healthy. He won't "own" a pet because he doesn't believe in making them like objects. Me, I am sorry but I love meat (eaten in moderation) and nice leather shoes and purses. I grew in a culture where hunting and fishing were a part of life. However, when I was a kid, my grandfather had chairs he had made himself where the seat was made of some hide that still had the hair on it. I wouldn't sit on them-they creeped me out. I don't think I am a bad parent for cooking my kids a steak along with a well balanced meal. Now feeding your kids crap everyday from BK, Mickiedee's, etc...not great parenting.

    Actually, although I tremble at quibbling with the mighty Grimmlok, it doesn't mean self-awareness. It comes from the Latin for "to perceive, to feel." It means that a being responds to or is aware of sense impressions. Therefore an animal is a sentient being, whereas a plant is a being but is not sentient, as it has no senses with which to perceive the world.

    PETA still sucks, though.

    that version of sentience is pretty much only used by animal right nuts to bolster the validity of their argument

    Secondly, plants react in a variety of ways to injury.. there was a study done with some plant hooked up to a lie detector.. the scientist lit a match and brought it near the plant, which registered signs of panic.
