PETA

Anyone got any views/inside info on the above organisation.

I got a leaflet through the door the other day and was considering giving a monthly donation but there seems to be lots of negative information about them on the internet.

Are they OK or are they extremists who amongst lots of other stuff euthanase a huge percentage of the animals they take in as it is claimed they do on the Net?

Mad cunts. Avoid.

They're a broad church ranging from slightly eccentric cunts to totally fucking mental cunts.

The latter, I'm afraid.

Tney are insane.

Save your money for your local Dog'sTrust or PDSA.

Also really really really misogynist.

You have to ask yourself do you agree with their positions.

Do you think that guide dogs for the blind should be banned? Do you think that covid 19 is a result of meat consumption? Do you think that the Pet Shop Boys are offensive?

champagnerocker - 17 Oct 2020 22:57:48 (#8 of 30)

#6 A large proportion of their headline grabbing publicity stunts certainly do appear to involve women with not many clothes on.

Verdigris - 17 Oct 2020 22:59:19 (#9 of 30)

Interesting. A bunch of incels who get a hard-on from killing animals "for their own good"?

Maya was put down later that day, a violation of a state law that requires a five-day grace period. Peta was fined $500 for the violation.



Wait, what, you can legally kill a dog you stole if you wait five days?

Also really really really misogynist.

They hate human beings as such.

FGBFGB - 17 Oct 2020 23:04:07 (#12 of 30)

It's's scarcely unreasonable to think that C19, first traced to a market in Wigan, results from human consumption of - in this case - unusual or uncommon animals as food. Do you think it emerged from pea-protein fiberglass fingers? Or is a myth?

#9: And of course women shamefully covering their nakedness in immoral vanity with the stolen splendour of God's creatures.

FGBFGB - 17 Oct 2020 23:04:28 (#14 of 30)

Wuhan, not Wigan.

Verdigris - 17 Oct 2020 23:05:07 (#15 of 30)

Wuhan



Does it have a sinking pier?

FGBFGB - 17 Oct 2020 23:05:23 (#16 of 30)

Fish fingers, not fibreglass fingers.

FGBFGB - 17 Oct 2020 23:06:18 (#17 of 30)

#15 Being a major river port, quite probably several.

nac1001 - 17 Oct 2020 23:07:48 (#18 of 30)

Dave Whelan owned Wuhan Athletic after breaking his leg in the cup final.

Ebadlun - 17 Oct 2020 23:10:04 (#19 of 30)

Fibreglass Fingers were a proper treat in the 70s

Verdigris - 17 Oct 2020 23:12:08 (#20 of 30)

It's all carbon-fibre fingers, these days.
