PETA Puts People on the Meat Slab


We love PETA's fondness for comparing the plight of animals to the imagined slaughter of humans. That's not alienating at all.

It's a good jarring piece and we get the point, yes very clever ha-ha, but hell, PETA, do you really think vegetables don't get harmed or traumatized just because they don't scream or bleed red? Who will fight for the plight of vegetables?! - Contributed by Angela Natividad

In Chinese, the expression for human flesh butchered for consumption by fellow humans is "long pork". Perhaps this removes some of the mystery of pork as a 'forbidden meat'? The serial muerder cult is growing and certain percentage are cannibals. Recipes forhuman pork rind and special BBQ suaces were once published on their now down web site which enjoyed a very active chat and message board. PETA's points are spot on---every act of violence against animals takes us closer to The Beast.

Cannibalism's existed as far back as BC 1000, possibly further. And while hunting other forms of meat is an instinct our animal friends share with us, cannibalism has been and remains a practice that has always required some kind of thought or justification.

This far past 1000 BC, can we really posit that instinctive behaviour brings us closer to an inability to differentiate it from behaviour that is historically always deliberate and thought-out?

That blood looks like paint. They should have used something a little more realistic. You're slacking PETA, you're slacking.

Too bad they're so into animals. Pig blood would have done nicely.

What an intelligent rationale. Let's not do anything about our cruel practices, inhumane treatment to animals, improving our capacity for compassion to continue on our path to becoming a civilized society, just because vegetables can't scream! and Angela I am your fan!

I will fight for vegetables, Angela! Salad is dead, too.
