    ...They do.
    Peta banned from using Baby P abuser in poster - Yahoo! News UK
    Ugh.
    Really, PETA? Really?
    For those who don't know, "Baby P" was a 1 year old child in the UK who was horrifically abused and murdered in 2007 by his mother's boyfriend. The mother, boyfriend & his brother were all convicted & sent to prison for allowing the death of a child. What the fuck kind of brain uses something like that on a poster...?

    I don't see a problem here. They are right. People who abuse animals have no concern for other creatures and would do the same to other human beings if it wasn't against the law and they wouldn't risk going to prison.

    Make no mistake, I am against animal cruelty, but PETA has been loony for a long time now. They have the ability to do real good, but they are also known to be kind of over-board.

    I feel Razorclaw makes a good point. All too often, people who abuse animals have no regard for any living creatures including other humans. I'm not familiar with the details of this particular ad though. If they twisted things to make their point, then I can see an issue there.

    They want a robotic Groundhog which is a good example of their looneyness:

    PETA proposes robotic groundhog for Pa. festival - Yahoo! News

    If you ever feel the need to annoy a PETA member who is bothering you, just tell them you're already a member of "People Eating Tasty Animals". They'll love that. :p  :D  :lolol

    The real question is why are you surprised by this? PETA is nuts.

    I really don't see what is the problem here? Is the problem that PETA made that poster?

    Here's the poster in question:

    [​IMG]

    Can someone tell me what is wrong with it? The PETA sign printed on it?

    Do you know what PETA considers to be animal abuse? That sign is saying "If you have a pet cat, it's only a matter of time before you beat a toddler to death." Fuck those guys, and fuck their retarded views. I'm gonna go eat a chicken sandwich.

    Yes, I read what you wrote. It had no obvious connection to what I said, hence my question.

    They are right about the research, but the problem is that PETA has no tact, no sensitivity toward their fellow humans. And they somehow think that beating people in the face with horrible things specifically tailored to bring up negative emotions is somehow going to make people more sensitive toward animals and agree with PETA.

    Of course there are animals, wild horses and burros, who were living like PETA would like all animals to live who are now being illegally rounded up and abused, even killed, and PETA is nowhere to be seen. Fucking hypocrites.

    No, the problem is that they have so little tact and think so little of human beings that they thought it would be a good idea to put a photo of someone who murdered a one year old baby up in the same area he murdered him in.
    Howasabout if they put up a poster of the Columbine freaks right next to the school they killed people in.
    Are you seriously trying to tell me you don't see anything wrong with that? A stunning lact of tact is the least of it. PETA's shock tactic bullshit does nothing but make them look like c**ts.

    This is incredibly idiotic. Shock tactics aren't going to work at all, they're just going to create problems.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to eat a Triple Baconator.

    Nobody is saying this murder is an OK guy. It is PETAs associating one with the other and the failure to realize that bringing up this douche's disgusting acts in the neighborhood where they happened that is causing the problems. PETA has a long history of taking 2 and 2 and getting 22. Then telling you how bad 22 is.

    As far as personal anecdotes go, this is one that got me fired up. I work with a sheltie rescue group, we were at a community event with some of our dogs that were up for adoption and we had a PETA groupie or somesuch show up. We had set up a small exercise pen in the shade with a couple of less social dogs in it. That way the dogs that are up for adoption are out where potential adopters can see them. They are getting socalization, nothing out of the ordinary. This douchebag stood there for ten minutes telling EVERYONE about how we were abusing those dogs in the shade with water bowls. That they should be allowed to run free and not be forced to breed two or three times a year and so forth.

    Now the ladies in this group are kind loving grandmother types. I had to calm two of them down from gong nuclear on this guy. Finally my wife got back in dudes face about how we take the dogs from those horrid places and get them healthy and find them homes. After a few minutes of that an event organizer came along and escorted dude off and let us know that a few other PETA nutjobs had been harassing other rescue groups that weekend. No idea why.

    That is why PETA is a bunch of fuckwits.

    i dont think its right to rub it in peoples faces like that. for members of the family who live in that area and are trying to get over the tragedy it would not help to have a giant reminder hanging over their heads.

    Peta was founded in Norfolk, Va right down the street from my house and boy is their founder is bananas. I read in an article that she had her ovaries removed because she didn't want to have a purebred human. Seriously, WTF?!? Peta has always been on the fringe I like the message but its the tactics that they employ that I can't agree with.

    It has been documented in the past those that start out killing animals will move on to humans. I agree with you the billboard was shocking and shameful unfortunately this is how they think they're helping. They have become laughable instead of laudable Which is a shame because they had a chance to become something meaningful.

    Peta's insane man, like a bunch of satan worshippers with pitchforks on LSD. Never gave a shit what they do/say anyway.
    Except watching them bury themselves. I bet they chew on furniture.

    Would'nt mind throwing a flaming lamb on their roof. 4kicks

    PeTa? Dont care for them. They just want to be the popular kid by claiming they're doing something good.

    Who wants a bacon sandwich?
