I do agree that some of their tactics are borderline, but they're just trying to get their point across. I'm not a vegetarian, I love steak, but I do care about animal rights and I give props to a corporation that's main goal is to care about animals.
i don't mean to sound like i'm against their cause; i'm certainly in favor of ethical animal treatment. just seems to me that PETA goes way beyond spreading awareness and into the realms of attempting to force other people to live by their standards. this health insurance thing was clearly an attempt to manipulate people into giving up meat. when i (and i can probably speak for most) say bad things about PETA, i'm only referring to the administration who tries to pull off this kind of stuff, rather than those who are simply members of the organization.

The whole 'throwing red paint' thing offsets some of the good things they do.

I remember when PETA tried to make people drink booze instead of milk. Does anyone else remember when they tried to do that?

There slogan was probably: Why hurt a cow when there are millions of people on the road everyday who you could kill.

That's no reason to make people drink booze. Tea would probably have been a better alternative.

Oh geez - NOT at all! I'm a very active member of the SPCA for my province, not only financially, but volunteering. I've written to my member of parliament and the prime minister about strengthing animal cruelty laws and punishments.

I'm also all for Greenpeace. They have tough tactics also, but draw the line.

I compare it to Martin Luther King (Greenpeace) and Malcolm X (PETA). You will get more attention and credibility if you take passive aggressive actions - not the tactics that PETA use.

And we have nothing against your buddy (Veggietarian). Its the organization as a whole. And they take it to lengths that are ridiculous (i.e. thinking that milking a cow is cruelty - they HAVE to be milked to be kept healthy - ask any farmer).


It's gotten to the point now that when I hear a PETA protest on the news I just laugh at them. They've gone SO over the top that people don't even take them seriously and they're nothing more than a pain in the ass blocking the street with their theatrical stunts while people are just trying to get to work to make a living. Find better ways of conveying your message and we might start listening to you PETA.

Yah, I just was reading that myself. Unfortunately she can't because this time it was just flour they used so no permanent damage was done.

To me, if PETA really wanted to help, they'd use their time more wisely fundraising than dousing people as they head into a club. It looks to me that most of them don't even have jobs - they're too busy pulling these silly stunts that do nothing other than alienate them from the mainstream.

Eventually, someone will sue PETA and they'll have to cease these dumb stunts.

PETA should ask all the grocery stores to give them discounts because they don't eat all those horrible, vile products we meat eaters do.

What a bunch of whiners. Stop asking for special treatment.

I also remember when PETA sent letters to Iraq/Afghanistan to plead with the military to stop using "camel bombs".

A war technique that they use is strapping bombs on camels and sending the camels loose in the direction of enemy camps. When the camels get close they detonate the bombs.

They said in their letters to leave the animals out of human wars.

they should raise the premiums for PETA members because of the much greater likelihood that someone will beat their ass fo being annoying.

P.S. - no animals were harmed or taken advantage of in the production of this post.
