    Did they just say “peta does great work?” are you kidding me? Peta kills tons of animals. They give out completely bullshit statements all the time and they are genuinely horrible people.

    Can we please focus on getting rid of the R-word first?

    (if you don’t know what that is & want to see it, click “read more”, but otherwise I’m not going to force people to see it)

    R-word in “retard” & it’s no different to any other minority slur

    Ugh, PETA. So many vegetarians and vegans can’t stand them. There are far better animal rights/welfare organisations. While it is important to examine our language so we can understand how it impacts our actions, there are more effective and honest ways to do it.

    PETA used that tweet almost 20 to 30 years before its time.

    Peta isn’t ‘doing great work’ – they’ve kidnapped peoples dogs out of their yards, like cutting leashes, and euthanized them. Peta is the an organization built on cruelty. Peta has zero rights to speak about the treatment of anyone, human or animal, let alone compare the two.

    “Flogging a dead horse that died of natural causes”
    Is that phrase peta friendly?

    PETA really is urban white people problems. The rest of the planet has to eat anything they can bring to the dining table, including meat. PETA apparently have same disconnect about race too. Otherwise they would never had said such stupid things
