Say what you will about PETA, but they're good at what they do. I'm glad they're around just so I can see the reactions they get out of people.

Say what I want, eh?

I don't think they're good at what they do, and I don't think they get interesting reactions out of people. O:-)

I disagree. The animals rights movement isn't going to truly get off the ground until its supporters are no longer characterized as wackos who dump red paint on people and harass children with videos of cows being slaughtered.

The animal rights movement is basically where it's at today because of PETA. It's never going to reach the point where everyone becomes vegan, but the backlash to fur, factory farms, and other animal abuses that don't involve eating them can be traced almost directly to PETA.

Also, I think PETA's number one priority, regardless of what they may claim, is to promote PETA, and at that, they are very good.

Please Use Breast Milk Ice Cream

Might as well cut the fat off of fat people and use that fat instead of animal fat to keep our steaks juicy while grilling them.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

All of which could have been accomplished with an intelligent, well-thought-out campaign aimed at educating people about these abuses rather than shock and scare tactics, assault or bizarre publicity stunts. I agree that the animal rights movement is where it's at because of PETA, but I would characterize their place in the social consciousness as not far from white collar criminals.
