I have a lot of problems with PETA, but I also don't understand why so many people take stunts like this seriously. Maybe PETA should use more emoticons.

I know right? It's like there's PETA, then there's the rest of us vegetarians who try and translate what they say.

i just think it's kinda weird. i wouldn't drink milk from another person's teet (who has been tested and found free of disease). so the thought of taking it from another animal is kinda weird to me too. i'm also lactose intolerant, so there's that. that doesn't stop me from the occasional brie, it's just weird to me when i sit and think about it.

Thank you! I always hear this stupid argument; "OMG we'd be up to our eyebrows with cows and chickens OH NOES!!" Obviously everyone on the planet is not going to stop consuming animal products over night.

Exactly, there is such a hatred for them, I don't agree with a lot of what they say but I have to give them credit for bringing the moral issue of animal rights into the public concience better than anyone else up until now.

it's not like it's all that hard to tell who he is. how many people do you know with that many body piercings? srsly. that's kinda cool he turned art into functionality though. i would've never thought of that.

perhaps I could take Peta a bit more seriously if they didn't use tactics that are out of the Westboro Baptist Church playbook.
