Schofield;5584410The day I agree that meat is bad is the day that Lions and Tigers stop hunting live prey and switch to veggies.
On that note, vegetarian cat owners make me laugh.
PETA complains about everything.
Though I will say that in the past there have been a few famous models/celebrities who have posed for them.
While I think that they're a ridiculously over-the-top organization, I do feel that the way they've incorporated, er, well... "suggestiveness" into some of their advertising in the past has been quite well done actually, as seen above.
But full-blown pornography? I mean come on. If I want to look at porn, I'm not going to go to PETA to do it. If I'm "mid-session" and some interruption about animal cruelty complete with images pops up, I think I'd be scarred for life.
Nemmerle;5584278Why would you go to PETA for your porn rather than one of the dedicated porno sites?[/quote]My guess is people who would enjoy watching actual animal pornography. They hear of PETA, put two and two together, come out with five.Schofield;5584410Now that we're on the subject of PETA, I don't even understand how someone can be against eating meat.[QUOTE=MrFancypants;5584416]Not to mention ethical (the way some of these animals are killed isn't very nice) or environemtal (meat is costly in terms of CO2) concerns.
I don't think it's so much the killing and eating of animals that troubles some people. What bothers them is the way we go about it.
And to conclude:
Alakazam;5584547They hear of PETA, put two and two together, come out with five.
When I hear "people for the ethical treatment of animals", bestiality isn't necessarily the first thing that springs to mind. =p
A lot of what PETA does is in mind with getting attention. Stunts like these mainly bring attention back to themselves, and that was the intent of their little thing here. PETA's already been doing something similar to this with taking nude photos of certain celebrities and the like to get the word out.
I mean just picking Battlefield 3 should show enough they were aiming to get the maximum rage out of the community for it. I mean in games like the Elder Scrolls you're pretty much killing beasts 24/7 but I think PETA knew they'd get more of an umph from BF3.
In the end though a lot of animal rights people and/or vegetarians and vegans don't take PETA seriously. There's a lot of other organizations that do a lot more 'good' activism than they do, such as trying to encourage adoption of strays and abandoned pets rather than buying them from a store, raising awareness about some cruel animal practices, etc that do actually get some results, though not much media 'attention'.
I didn't make it!
MrFancypants;5584416While I am also a fan of meat it does make sense to eat less or none at all. Red meat is linked to several types of cancer and mass produced meat comes from animals fed with all sorts of drugs and hormones. Not to mention ethical (the way some of these animals are killed isn't very nice) or environemtal (meat is costly in terms of CO2) concerns.
Meat is also still the only way to get a decent amount of proteins in your body. Yes of course you can eat the vegetarian stuff, but it appears to not be 10% as good as real meat. Also, animals eat each other, cause they need food. We are, still, Omnivores, which means we need everything and we eat everything. Plants, animals, everything.
I would not have any intention changing the biological evolving and change our omnivore-ism to being herbivores... Or industryvores for that matter....
Just FOD already.
