This is a response to this blog entry: [url]http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/blogs/52188/my-insight-into-petas-mindset-56538/[/url]

I have made a Ton of anti-peta blog entries in the past, but i want to be on record for saying that i have nothing against vegans as a whole.
It's how they act that determines whether i have a bone to pick with them or not.
My aunty is a vegan, and she's a wonderfull caring person, who has no problem with everyone else eating meat. She doesn't support Peta and actually thinks that they are ruining it for vegans.
She's right, they kinda make vegans look insaine in a way. what with the whole "haulicaust on your plate" bullshit, and the "meat is murder" gibberish and all.
also the videos showing women having sex with vegetables? no, just no, please?
youre not going to make me want to go vegan by touching your privates with a piece of celery or broccoli, ok?
also, granted that there are alternates to eating meat, you don't have to do scare campaigns to people, by showing them videos of the 3% of meat industry factories that actualy treat their animals like shit. 3% isn't very much, in fact i think i'm being generous to peta when i say 3%, it's more like 1% and that's still being generous.
My uncle works for the meat industries, and i can assure peta that he takes good care of his animals. One time, him and his son (my cousin) were attached to a cow we named "zeffer" to the point where when it was tie for her slaughter, both my uncle and cousin were crying, and prayed that her meat would help feed the poor.
as a matter of fact, i believe that some of her meat was sent to poor people. but anyway, my uncle always shows love for his animals, and when it comes time for the slaughter, he holds a mini ceremony in honor of the animal's life.
now not all people will do this, but most people in the meat industries do take good care of their animals.
Some times, there are rare cases in which the animals are abused, but again, it's 3% being very generous.
so again, nothing against vegans as a whole, just that some vegans need to stop taking things too far.

    For which I agree. I do want to say that just because someone bashes PETA doesn't mean they hate vegans. I to have nothing against vegans and I even tried to switch to a more vegetarian diet once in my lifetime, but when someone starts treating their views as if were a shaft and start whipping it out and shoving it down my throat, then we have a problem. Which is what PETA does most of the time. I support that they want to save animals and all of that, I have nothing against that since I had pets of my own. But please, do not guilt me just because I happen to eat a hamburger or I fish or I happen to wear a fur coat that one day.

    One way they do that is by publicly bashing celebrities who wear animal products, depicting them as being evil.

    In other words, support the cause, yes! I just don't support the people running the cause.

    I knew a vegan once a few years back, she was one because she disliked the idea of animals being mass-produced just so they would eventually be "butchered" (as she would say) and served as meat. However, if the animals lived on a farm and had it very well, she had stated that she would most likely not have any problems eating meat.

    i know some people who are vegan/vegetarian. all that i have asked from them is that they respect my opinions on my right to eat meat, and i dont disrespect them for their thoughts on not eating meat nor do i force my pro meat agenda on them because i dont like it when people force thier agendas onto me. 99.99% were compliant with my request and we get along just fine. its the ones who try to FORCE me to become vegan i have the issues with. all i ask for is respect on my beilfes and i will respect the other persons just as long as they are civilized about it because i am not going to give up my tasty bacon because some one thinks that I should give up eating the food I enjoy and eat some awful tofu concotion because it makes THEM feel better that they dont eat animals. idont feel that I should have to sacrifice the things I enjoy because someone else doesnt like my lifestyle choices. and when the person who is trying to preach to me thier ideas gets all mad and upset that i dont agree with them, it makes me think of less of them beceause that is not how respectable people try to get points across to others i do remember to also eat fruits and vegetables and keep the meat in moderation. but like ive said before, i go by the "you respect me, i respect you" rule. And the "i dont force my opinion onto any one and i expect the same or i wont think very respectivaly of you" rule also appies here too

    my aunty is a respectable vegan, she's vegan due to allergies to sertain products, and still proves to be a respectable person. sadly, people at peta make her look bad, which is a shame, because if you get to know her, she's the nicest person you'll ever meet.

    Associating PETA with vegans or anybody who cares in the slightlest about animals means PETA wins.


    I do not loathe PETA despite being inclined to vegetarianism (I preffer not to if given the choice, but I can eat meat) and defending animal rights, I hate them BECAUSE of that.

    They are jokingly compared to Team Plasma in the sense that "no it's all a lie for PR our real plans are getting money/power and we have no scruples nor standards". That's why they keep the "all publicity is good publicity" idea, it's exactly what they want: So they are associated with "psycho animal lovers" instead of the scum they actually are, getting publicity as extremists so people will still give them money.

    To be blunt: Slaughterhouses are literally more humane than PETA. Complying to standards, the animal is to be administered an instantly lethal brain shock for a quick death, and this death is for food. PETA instead kills thousands of stray dogs to "save them from human slavery" or some other BS message. In some cases through some disturbing means.

    I'm pretty sure every of their messed up "publicity" stunts has an even more messed up background. Those bloody incidents with carcasses? Either a lot of money was wasted to then waste perfectly fine food... or something more sinister happened.


    But that's offtopic. What's relevant to this blog is respecting other's oppinions and lifestyle choices. As long as they aren't harmful and disrespectful, anyways.
    And such gross and malicious distortions of things like PETA's publicity does only cause disrespect and misunderstandings.
