PETA - You Know The Story

I haven't had a chance to write a letter to them, but I DID sign the petition.  For those of you who have NOT heard about this yet (I don't know how!), the inestimable Keiko sums up the article, her response, and THEIR response on her site. 

Every response by PETA that I have seen has staunchly defended their actions.  And here's the thing.  I understand the thought process, just not using NAIW to support it.  It is misdirected, AT BEST.  I am all for protection of animals, spaying and neutering, all of it.  I ate no meat for half my life.  And I try to be conscientious about the meat that I do buy.  And I fully believe in responsible reproduction because of the population issues. 

All that aside, it is NOT okay to link our community so disrespectively to such a campaign.  And we need to let them know it's not okay.  If nothing else, go to Keiko's page and sign the petition. 

So, go.  Go on.  Go do something about it. 


  1. This is just one of the several reasons that I am no longer a card-carrying, PETA member.

  2. That's where I stand. I don't have any problem with the campaign itself. It's the association with infertility awareness week that is just so unnecessarily mean.

  3. Yea, I was shocked to read about that! Makes me so mad! I can't even begin to describe how heated I get with people that are so ignorant.


Whip me, beat me, take away my charge card. Or just leave a comment. Whichever works best for you :)
