    "tanukis are raccoon dogs that are indigenous to Asia"

    Wait, Tanookis are actual animals? I always thought it was just a mythical animal. Must be like the Tasmanian Devil, it exists but not as it's normally portrayed or something like that. Anyways, I learnt something. Tanukis exist.

    ...


    And my respect for PETA is now subterranean. Any further and it'd dig a hole through to the other side of the Earth. Seriously, I don't get this. I support treating animals with care (stunning before killing, freezing lobsters before cooking them, etc.) but this is just stupid. Come on, he's been stomping on turtles for years, and that's somehow not of any concern, but Tanooki Mario is? And it's Mario. It's a fictional world. Seriously.

    I've lost all respect for PETA now. I'm starting to think that for all the good they're doing (which is...not much), they're screwing up too many other things in the process. Video games, women's rights, they'll basically screw over anything for animals.

    Well, now you know.
    And knowing is half the-*shot*

    To be fair, the Super Mario Bros. series is a pretty old video game franchise. It's probably safe to say that everyone's gotten on Mario's case for the animal-stomping, so PETA gets a free pass for that IMO. That said, there's no excuse for this stupidity.

    These people have lost their minds... incredible.

    Besides, this isn't even new - this was in Super Mario Bros 3 back in the day - back then, as an impressionable youth, I didn't even realize the tanooki was a real animal, let alone think, "oh, well since MARIO wears its fur, I guess it's okay if I do too."

    I mean, seriously, wtf PETA?

    I always thought the suit was more like a plush toy.

    So he stomps in turtles, fishes, and on dead turtle carcases......yet they're yelling now? Wonder what they have to say about the frog suit? God, PETA is just like a whining child that wants attention.

    "In reality, Tanukis are raccoon dogs that are indigenous to Asia and well-known in Japanese culture. The fur trade has decimated their ranks, and their plight is indeed an important one. But chasing down fur wearers in video games is a waste of time that distracts from the seriousness of the problem."

    Good thing the writer of that article has some since though. I swear, people will just dog on video games so that they can get a quick spike of attention to themselves.

    Couldn't have said it better. I wish these losers would just go away forever. They give normal animal lovers a bad name.

    Nope. I'm a Sony fan, and I'd be more offended to be associated with these fucks than the shit they say offends them.

    Go Mario, because...you know... an adult plump human can wear and actual raccoon over himself.

    I guess they have nothing against boomerang Mario, who kicks ass by the way.

    I'm a Sonic fan. I still like Mario. Please don't mix up Sonic fans with Peta psychos.
