Hi! I'm a cosplayer, crafter, and Homestuck addict from central Iowa. This is the blog for my cosplay pictures and rebloggings. If you like cute Homestuck crafts, you should check out my other blog, wiggleradventures.tumblr.com!
PETA isn’t for animal welfare, they are for animal -RIGHTS- and the distinction is a big one.
So long as they strive for:
~ Total animal liberation, (aka no pets, no farms, no zoos, no breeders or shelters). They want complete disassociation from human and animal interaction. Even if that means the deaths of most domesticated species.
~ Completely vegan society. Where individual choice does not matter and those individuals who do not thrive on all vegan can kick the bucket, for all they care. No meat industry = no obligate carnivore pets.
~ Market horrible advertisements full of insane logic and gorey scare-tactics to show young children. To scare them away from meat and certain games that they think promote cruelty to animals. Like this
~ Lure the average joe in with pictures of cute puppies and kittens suffering in shelters. Throw up big -donate to help them- signs. Then they turn around and use that money to fund terrorist organizations like ALF, vegan agenda campaigns and lawyers to support things like BSL Almost NOTHING goes to those poor animals.
So yes they are scum, even with the over the top unscientific advertisements aside. I will grant you that in lobbying and suing for the complete erasure of farming, testing and other animal captivity worries, they have resulted in some beneficial animal welfare. Where they were met half way and the animals benefited but it was not their intended outcome.
Please! Be for animal welfare! Don’t Be for PETA.
Be responsible and know where your animal products come from. Boycott products of mistreatment and unhealthy conditions and you yourself will be healthier for it.
Don’t even get me started on sea kittens…
Don’t forget that PETA pays people to abuse animals for their videos/photos.
Remember they are a for profit organization and no nothing to actually help animals.
