PETA Asked Everyone To Stop Using "Anti-Animal" Phrases And People Are Like WTF?

"This isn’t a red herring, it’s a sign society is going to the dogs. Thanks for tackling the elephant in the room."

Stephanie McNeal
BuzzFeed News Reporter
Posted on December 4, 2018, at 9:54 p.m. ET
Excerpt:

On Tuesday, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — better known as PETA — tweeted a missive to its followers. It asked them to stop using "anti-animal language."
https://img.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeed-static/static/2018-12/4/21/asset/buzzfeed-prod-web-04/sub-buzz-31149-1543976615-5.jpg?downsize=800:*&output-format=auto&output-quality=auto
The animal rights group said it hoped the phrases listed would become as unacceptable in society as "racist, homophobic, or ableist language."

The activist group said the dream is that "phrases that trivialize cruelty to animals will vanish as more people begin to appreciate animals for who they are and start ‘bringing home the bagels’ instead of the bacon."

The tweet backfired, rather spectacularly.

Buzzfeed and Twitter, so language (and not the racist, homophobic or abelist kind) warning

PETA are a bunch of snowflakes.

Plus they kill more animals than they help. They should have their tax exempt status pulled IMMEDIATELY.

Why bother to use anti-animal phrases when you can just kill them instead,right PETA?

They probably think it’s the cat’s meow, but they should have held their horses before serving up what will be a dead duck.

Why would you feed a fed horse? And feeding a scone to a bird is not good for the bird.

These idiots are just that, idiots.

Those are great “before” and “after” pictures. (It’s not about weight loss, but still, they’re good pics.)

Instead of "More than one way to skin a cat", say "More than one way to wear a hat".

That's a horse of a different color--is a racist statement and doesn't even merit an alternate phrase.

Curiosity killed the cat--should be "curiosity makes the cat more skilled."

That dog don't hunt--should be "don't ask the dog to bunt when he's batting over 300."

Quiet as a church mouse--should be "quiet as a mosque mouse."

Don't let the cat outta the bag, but there's more than one way to skin it!

I'll never get used to these new expressions, because you can't teach an old dog new tricks.

Yup. That was an easy comparison - Like shooting fish in a barrel.

And speaking of barrels, this thread is more fun than a barrel of monkeys!

:D
