  • Published on Dec 6, 2018
  • PETA volunteered alternatives to 'anti-animal phrases' like 'kill two birds with one stone' and 'beat a dead horse.' But they missed a few.

    PETA in a nutshell:
    ☺️👍 Trying to correct simple phrases because they have animal “cruelty” in them while dissing an actual wildlife conservationist and euthanizing innocent animals
    😑👎 Actually helping animals

    i hate that veganism is usually seen as directly related to PETA. they make us seem like radicals who will yell at you if you eat a steak or cry when you cook eggs. i really believe they're the reason a good amount of people see vegans as annoying spineless pricks. they're certainly not practicing what they preach.

      Peri “controlled opposition” is a cliched and almost always wrong accusation, but jeez PETA makes it easy to levy. If I were a factory farming industry lead who wanted to make animal rights activists look stupid and insane, PETA would make an excellent model to copy.

    Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Jack Frost nipping at your nose. Yule Tide carols being sung by a choir and folks dressed up like eskimos. Everybody knows some tofu and some mistletoe, help to make the season bright. Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow, will find it hard to sleep tonight. They know that Santa's on his way. He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh. And every mother's child is going to spy, to see if hoversleighs really know how to fly. And so I'm offering this simple phrase, to kids from 1 to 92. Although it's been said many times many ways, Merry Christmas to you.

  • Mel Marshmellow aka Suga's Fresh Salad

    I understand that people think it's unethical to harm animals, but phrases? PETA really trying to restrict art and figurative language because it supposed influences harm to animals? screw off.

    Why would changing phrases be a bad thing? Is Peta holding a knife to your throat? No, they're not forcing you to do anything but think. Being cognizant of what your saying is actually a very good thing. There are so many animal abusers out there. People, who get their jollies out of inflicting pain on the vulnerable, whether animal or human. Animal abuse is one of the signs of a psychopath or sociopath on their way to becoming a serial killer.

    PeTA: people for the ETHICAL treatment of animals.
    So many PeTA hate commenters! Please just hold a moment and think about if you want your pet animal or your children or your family members or whales or dolphins, orangutans, elephants, polar bears to be treated like the way we treat the animals which are supposed to be utilized for us.
    If you refuse to do that you are in terms of ethics not any better than Trump, the greedy people behind the GOP or the slave holders of the past.
    Sorry that you are so unreflected.

    So Peta wants people to stop eating animals and one of their claims is that animal farms are the leading cause to methane exposure to the atmosphere, and its worth noting that methane is 25x worse than CO2 as a greenhouse gas. So they wanna help the climate and yet youre making fun of them for wanting that but you'll bash on Trump for something similar. Dont be a hypocrite.

      Enteric fermentaion 26%, manure management 10%, and a little part of other maybe like 3%. Which equates to 39% of methane released into the atmosphere and caused by factory farms.

    Language is something that evolves by itself, you can't force it to change overnight.
    I actually think at some point there will be much more vegans than non-vegans and at a later point, it will probably even be illegal to eat animals. But that day is still far away and before that day the language won't evolve to that point by itself.
    So I think today it makes much more sense and would help more animals and the envoirenment to make it easier for people to go vegan and tell them why it makes sense than to tell them how they should talk.

    How about PETA stfu about useless phrases and actually focus on saving animals. My friend and I found a dying kitty yesterday, and all we could do for it was let her brother put it out of its misery because in Texas no shelter can be bothered to help animals on Sundays. In fact, most the animals adopted out of our local shelters are sick, or get put down the morning before the family comes to get them for some not suspicious reason. But dare someone says "grab the bull by the horns."
