    PETA volunteered alternatives to 'anti-animal phrases' like 'kill two birds with one stone' and 'beat a dead horse.' But they missed a few.

Why would changing phrases be a bad thing? Is Peta holding a knife to your throat? No, they're not forcing you to do anything but think. Being cognizant of what your saying is actually a very good thing. There are so many animal abusers out there. People, who get their jollies out of inflicting pain on the vulnerable, whether animal or human. Animal abuse is one of the signs of a psychopath or sociopath on their way to becoming a serial killer.

PeTA: people for the ETHICAL treatment of animals. So many PeTA hate commenters! Please just hold a moment and think about if you want your pet animal or your children or your family members or whales or dolphins, orangutans, elephants, polar bears to be treated like the way we treat the animals which are supposed to be utilized for us. If you refuse to do that you are in terms of ethics not any better than Trump, the greedy people behind the GOP or the slave holders of the past. Sorry that you are so unreflected.

So Peta wants people to stop eating animals and one of their claims is that animal farms are the leading cause to methane exposure to the atmosphere, and its worth noting that methane is 25x worse than CO2 as a greenhouse gas. So they wanna help the climate and yet youre making fun of them for wanting that but you'll bash on Trump for something similar. Dont be a hypocrite.

Language is something that evolves by itself, you can't force it to change overnight. I actually think at some point there will be much more vegans than non-vegans and at a later point, it will probably even be illegal to eat animals. But that day is still far away and before that day the language won't evolve to that point by itself. So I think today it makes much more sense and would help more animals and the envoirenment to make it easier for people to go vegan and tell them why it makes sense than to tell them how they should talk.

How about PETA stfu about useless phrases and actually focus on saving animals. My friend and I found a dying kitty yesterday, and all we could do for it was let her brother put it out of its misery because in Texas no shelter can be bothered to help animals on Sundays. In fact, most the animals adopted out of our local shelters are sick, or get put down the morning before the family comes to get them for some not suspicious reason. But dare someone says "grab the bull by the horns."

ASPCA & Bestiality I was a member of the ASPCA until I entered puberty. And then I quit, cuz my parents let me. I don't really know anything about the ASPCA even though I do remember something happening when I was around ten. So the ASPCA was a mystery to me, accept for their ads for dog & cat abuse on the TV. I finally got to talk very candidly with a spokesperson for the ASPCA & a family friend. So what is the ASPCA? What R U guys & gals all about? OK he said: the ASPCA is a powerful & influential national organization dedicated to having sex with animals. We are into expressing carnal love for animals. We're in favor of inter-species marriage. To put it quite frankly, we are in favor of world wide bestiality. Really? Of course. I thought everybody knew that? Well I thought the American Society to Prevent Cruelty to Animals was to prevent cruelty to animals. Of course we are not cruel to the animals we 'ph'k! Mostly we ph'k dogs & cats but each of our ph'kings... red rockets... etc is done using Crisco. Every animal shelter has tons of the stuff. But Crisco is a shortening, I exclaimed. Suddenly the ASPCA'S spokesperson's face went blank & he discontinued our interaction. Later it was revealed in the press that male animal caretakers at the ASPCA had been having sex with animals & using Crisco as a lubricant and all of their penises were reduced in size. They all felt it was a punishment from God for ph'king animals but then they remembered, there is no God!

Maybe _PeTA_ should be more concerned with the fact that 75% of animals they "rescue" are euthanized within a year rather than "speciesist language". Also remember that time some _PeTA_ workers kidnapped a 9 year old girls dog and euthanized it? Pepperidge Farm remembers...

If we live in a world that is so volatile that PeTA has to worry about the idea of people taking common idioms and turning them into acts of violence, then we have to admit that there is a much larger problem with today's society and mental instability than a few words can describe.

Is it possible to be vegetarian/vegan and still don't like PETA all the time? Obviously. I'm on my way to becoming a vegetarian but I'll say for sure that PETA has nothing to do in convincing me of anything, if not doing exactly the opposite. I'm sure most of them are decent people with common sense and it's just a few nut jobs doing all others a disservice. Based on these radical minorities' ideal, languages around the world will be destroyed. I know languages do evolve with time so there are things people used to say all the time that can't really be said anymore, and vice versa. But all the idioms with interesting origin stories can't just be censored and replaced with something unoriginal just to not offend those few who have no right to be offended by not understanding that people don't mean it literally when using idioms like that. Since these are things that don't cause people to abuse animals, how about focusing on actual animal cruelty all over the world first?

Does PETA not know that animals are utterly unconcerned with our language? The reason its not okay to say racist or homophobic things is because there are people who speak English that are affected by those words. Further...

I'm a vegan, I think this is funny. I don't give a damn about silly sayings. Getting offended for people who aren't offended makes as much sense as being offended for animals who don't care. Animals will notice if toy abuse them, pet them feed them or kill them but they won't care that you use a saying that is commonly used to convey a meaning that most people understand. Like Stephen said. We have bigger fish to fry. Demonizing other people won't help them change. I wouldn't have become vegan over someone telling me how evil I am for eating meat.
