Not everyone has the same opinions.
Sure you don't have to agree with everything they do but what animal group can you not find faults with,everyones got a problem with something.
I guess I don't see a lot of good that PETA does.... Somebody said that they get people thinking about animal rights that wouldn't usually think about them. I have to disagree. I mean do you listen to the psycho gun nut screaming about gun rights? Or do you listen to reasonable person who can give you some statistics about the reality of gun ownership/hunting. Fanatics only convert other fanatics not reasonable people and fortunately (or not depending what issue you're talking about) there are more reasonable people than fanatics. The only time fanatacism has a real effect on a situation is when there is no hope or order. PETA wants me to set my animals "free" well right now they live inside or in situations very close to their natural habitat...they get plenty of food, treats, shelter, no predators, plus love and affection... for that they let me ride them... pretty good trade off. Frankly if horses didn't want us let us ride them we probably wouldn't be riding them.... Do the math 1200 pound animal, 120 person.
Sorry about the rambling, but their attitude really irritates me. If they REALLY cared they would work with people to create change, not act like 2 yr olds throwing a tantrum. Which is what I think every time I see one of these groups attacking a whaling boat or factory farm or meat packing plant. I want animals to be treated well too, but I convert my friends and people that don't know me by talking to them...not screaming at them.
Ok, sorry again, I'm done.
