    A Complex Issue

    Now, I'm not for feeding chickens so much so fast that their little legs can't support them anymore, just to get to market sooner. Or any of the other corporate-farm nightmares you hear about. BUT...we are already barrelling down a slippery slope of animal rights nonsense that...

    I like the fact that they are spreading

    awareness for abuse. I like that they are spreading vegan ideas. I just really don't like peta at all they are just Hippocrates. It's sad because they have so many followers and so many donations that they could really be making a change to the world. I wish instead of worrying...

    PETA is a joke. They don't really care about

    the animals - they care about the money.

      I think they go way to far. I mean they are constantly going way over board. Like when they were talking about wanting ice cream companies like Ben & Jerry's to use breast milk instead of cows milk. That is...

    Pro Animal Rights But Anti Peta

    In the story shared just before this one, the poster commented that they were "not vegetarian" but observed animals should be treated better than they are. I am another poster who will in the eyes of some, "admit" that I am not a vegetarian and some of the items in my wardrobe...

    PETA is a bit extreme when it comes to animal rights, methinks.  I disapprove of factory farms and all, but I wouldn't go to the extent of funding arsonists to burn down the facilities, just to put a stop the animal cruelty that goes on inside.    It...

    Insane Methods

    I also am not a vegetarian, but do love animals. I do not own any furs, but have leather-as the rest of that animal was used for other purposes. I DO support the RSPCA/ASPCA because they do good work. PETA on the other hand, is entirely too extreme.

    I believe that animals have just

    as many rights as us but in no way shape or form support PETA. I have read enough about them to know that they kill more animals a year than ANY shelter, even shelters that support killing. How hypocritical is that! It irks me that they try and stand up for animals, but yet...

    I Believe That Animals, Spe...

    I believe that animals, specially if they're humans, have a right to remain silent. They don't have the ability, though.

    To Your Left

    The picture I uploaded is an example of their sleezy campaign pictures, there are some worse, I don't see what being naked has to do with not eating meat, and treating animals right, it's so sleazy. They are extremists who give activists a bad name, they also lie alot!!  If...
