PETA should back off a little

3 02 2010

I am getting a little sick of PETA’s aggressive and ridiculous behavior. Every celebrity that wears fur should decide that for themselves and not have to be scared for attacks by PETA. First there was the issue around singer Kelis who was so fed-up with critique from PETA that she wrote a letter to them saying she is pro-carnivore and pro-fur in a very elaborate way. She says she loves to feel of real fur and hates fake and points out that fur is not made from endangered species(totally agree with her on that) To rub them the wrong way even more she says she salivates while writing about eating a steak. Love my steak as well.

Another victim of PETA was figure skater Johnny Weir who had fox fur in his little outfit for the Olympics. After the U.S trials PETA promised to disturb his Olympic games and fired threats to Weir’s designer. They decided not to have their lives ruined and will change to fake fur. Not because they agree with PETA though. So by bullying people and threats PETA sometimes get what they want. Weir said that people should pick their battles. Over a hundred thousand dead people in Haiti, people dying from hunger all over the world but a little bit of fur on an outfit is too much. I agree with him on that.

So as a conclusion I like to say I am against animal cruelty(people like Michael Vick should still be in prison), love my dogs but also love meat and think people should have the right to wear fur if they want without getting death threats.

It’s a tough issue. I agree that abject cruelty like that filthy savage Michael Vick displayed should be punished. But I am also somewhat a hypocrite, as I don’t know how the animals that died to feed me were treated. Same with fur. A humane, sustainable system of farming should be strongly encouraged for all animal harvesting. I’d pay extra to know that the anmimal that died to bring me food/clothing was treated humanely in death and respected in life.
