PETA mysogynist not vegan

http://www.theprovince.com/news/PETA+protest+just+another+piece+meat/3409581/story.html

In my local paper today I am faced with two young ladies wearing nothing but G strings cut so low in front as to confirm both ladies wax "Brazilian", their bodies labeled with the cuts of meat to show these young women as nothing more than another piece of meat. Given the sequence of pictures shows two groups of people looking avidly on; pre- and school age girls and adult men, it seems the message that women are nothing more than meat is indeed getting through.
Why is the objectification of women bad if it is done in a strip club where only consenting adults may enter, but totally OK, and somehow laudable if it is done on our city streets? As the father of three daughters, I would rather my daughters wore fur and ate veal at every meal than listened to PETA peddle the message they are nothing but a piece of meat. At least Hefner meant it as a compliment. Sad when Playboy places more value on women than PETA does.

Somehow, I don't think the message PETA intended was what was being understood by the assembled crowd.

Few people here in the States but those already vegan fanatics pay any attention to what PETA says or does. PETA shoot themselves in the feet trying to garner attention and seem oblivious to the fact that all they do is contribute to the prevailing view that they're nutjobs.

What's really sad is that they give all vegans a bad rep. I know a couple of vegans who aren't raving loonies and don't care what anybody else eats. The PETA nonsense puts a face of nutjobbery on veganism in general.

To clarify, I certainly didn't intend to suggest that I think all vegans are nutcases by any means.

Maybe I should be more grateful that just about anywhere I've lived, those two young women would be given coverups and escorted away to be charged as an affront to public decency.

Couldn't the point have been made effectively by drawing the lines on a flesh-colored bodysuit?

I never associated PETA with vegans. I know no nutjob vegans. They are all just everyday people.
PETA isn't about the animals...PETA is about controlling people. They have no problem killing animals themselves... http://www.petakillsanimals.com/
Since 1998, PETA has opted to “put down” 23,640 adoptable dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens instead of finding homes for them.

PETA’s “Animal Record” report for 2009, filed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, shows that the animal rights group killed 97 percent of the dogs and cats in its care last year. During all of 2009, PETA found adoptive homes for just eight pets.

Just eight animals -- out of the 2,366 it took in. PETA just broke its own record.

They are like anti-abortion twats...They don't want to save anything, they want to CONTROL someONE.

You've certainly been more fortunate than I have then. I've known some vegans who were absolutely as fanatical about it as any militant pro-lifer.

Take a look sometime on a vegan site at the threads arguing whether or not it's okay to eat honey and you'll find some people that I can't help but think are off the deep end about veganism. There's no "just a little" with this sort. You either eliminate ALL insect and animal-source products from your life, or you're not really a vegan.

When I ate a vegan raw foods diet, I was told quite seriously by some vegans that I ought not refer to what I was eating as vegan raw foods, because even though what I ate contained no animal products, I myself was not a vegan. The proper term for my diet, according to them, was strict vegetarian. Nevermind that few people other than fanatical vegans or perhaps well-informed vegetarians have a clue what "strict vegetarian" means. They generally know what a vegan diet is.

I had to say I knew a couple of vegans who aren't loons because I've met far more vegans who are loons.

I've met lots of good vegetarians, the ones who self identify as vegan tend to be a little extreme for my tastes, but most of them have actual social boundaries and are OK as long as you keep the subjects away danger topics. Every community has its weirdos; in the vegan community the true wastes of skin self segregate at PETA. Good to know.

Unfortunately for the rest of us and our kids, a good many of the more rabid vegans also refuse to vaccinate their kids because they believe that all vaccines contain toxic heavy metals, the poisonous effects of which outweigh the benefits conveyed by the vaccines.

I'm inclined to wonder how many of these nutball parents are contributing to the increase in formerly preventable diseases such as whooping cough among schoolkids.

What's really bizarre is that I read somewhere that nationwide in the U.S. most vegans and vegetarians are college-educated since a good many such also favor organic foods which you'd about have to have a college graduate's income to afford unless you grow your own. I guess there are a lot of college-educated veg*ns who've let their zeal overcome their better judgment.

Education is wonderful, and a degree is nice (my wife and I each have one), unfortunately, they tend to affect the more egotistical by convincing them that since they have studied something, they must therefore know more about everything.
This explains why English Lit, Education, Theology, Commerce, and Engineering degrees somehow qualify speakers to address the bio-medical questions about the importance and safety of current (as opposed to 1950's) vaccination programs.
There is only one thing that is more dangerous than a little knowledge, and that is none at all.
