What's wrong with PETA? If they are bullshit, then I will remove the tag from my post.

Oh god, what isn’t wrong with PETA.  This is a really good masterpost on a lot of the crap they pull.  But a couple of the most important things:

  • PETA has killed more than 21,300 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens since 1998, despite many being perfectly adoptable

  • They constantly use sexist and objectifying images of women to draw attention to their ads.  Consistent depiction of women as “meat.” (Seriously, google “PETA ads” and just look at all the ladies.  Who needs Playboy)
  • Allude to the abuse of women in their ads
  • They fully support violent means of protest and have given money to arsonists and other vandals(see: ALF)
  • They’re down with total animal liberation aka no pets or farm animals or working animals for anyone ever
  • Accused of staging videos(remember the “skinning animals alive” video?), and has used fake images in their articles(go to a peta article and plug the images of “abused or killed” animals into google images and it more often than not brings up something completely unrelated)
  • Have handed out pamphlets to people at the Westminster dog show  while dressed in KKK cloaks
  • Compares meat eating to the holocaust
  • Pet ownership is an “absolutely abysmal situation brought about by human manipulation.”
    -Ingrid Newkirk
  •  “…Eventually companion animals would be phased out, and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship, enjoyment at a distance.”
    Ingrid Newkirk
  • Would be against a cure for AIDS if it was reached via animal testing
  • Body shaming image

  • Ingrid Newkirk’s will suggests that when she dies, her flesh be used in a barbecue, her skin be used to make “leather” products, and parts of her body, such as ears or thumbs, be sent to people that have generally pissed her off.  I can’t make this shit up.

Welp I got carried away.  I have a lot of strong feelings about PETA.
