Yes, they'll take them in and kill them, but I'm pretty certain PETA doesn't operate or fund any real shelters.

If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.

Really, I have no problem with anyone who is vegetarian, ovo-lacto, or vegan, regardless of whether it's for health reasons or just because it's a chosen lifestyle.

As long as they don't try to convert me, I'm all for whatever floats their boats!

PETA now, I consider just another dirty, four letter word.....
It doesnt have to be a dirty four letter word, People Eating Tasty Animals

So PETA is nothing but extremists? I have a philosophy regarding extremists; stay far, far away. o_O

Yes, and I think this happens to a lot of well-meaning organizations over time. Eventually "winning the war" becomes more important than the original cause. It all goes back to tribalism unfortunately.

Yep, ponyboy is right. I am sure that PETA was originally started by people like us who just wanted to see all animals get a fair shake at life without being terrorized or abused (though I may be wrong and they have always been just a fear mongering cult). I eat meat. I love meat. I can't quite go so far as SR and eat my steak rare, though. Medium rare is more my taste; still red but doesn't have that raw meat texture *bleh* LOL.

I, like most everybody else, have no problem with people who choose to be vegetarians for whatever reason. If you don't like meat? That's fine, I don't like squash. Everyone has their own personal tastes. You don't like the idea of eating something that had a face? That's fine too, that's your own personal belief and I have no right to judge you based on that. When it comes to the fanatics, though, their arguments are simply laughable. Live a death free lifestyle? HA! How many rabbits, snakes, mice, deer, or any other little furry wild creature have you hit and killed with your car? Do you kill the black widow spider in the corner of your living room or do you leave her be in the hope that she won't bite your child while they are watching TV? Do you ever step on a bug on purpose? Have you ever bought a can of raid and actually used it? Do you call the local animal control if you have a rabid coyote stalking your house?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then guess what? You are a murderer just like the rest of humanity. We are predators and worse than that, we force our environment to adapt to us, unlike the rest of the animal kingdom who adapt to their environment. Every day we live and every move we make affects millions of animals, killing many of them.

At a bachelorette party, we actually convinced some really drunk stupid guy at the bar to touch his tongue to it for two cigarettes and one dollar. The blue zap was so big and loud, you couldn't even see his tongue. He must have shot back 20 feet, upon which we promptly offered him an extra two smokes and five dollars if he'd drop his pants.

He promptly ran away muttering something about crazy bleeping women, I don't know, I think his tongue hurt to much. But yes, electric tennis rackets are FUUUUN.

Heck yes I kill bugs! I hate bugs! Nasty little things that they are. Ugh. Spiders especially. Except I can't get close enough to them, so I have someone else do it, or a throw shoes or spray it with whatever is handy until it's sufficiently dead and flushed. =]
