    That video was offensive. It was an obvious display of cruelty to vegetables. Won't someone think of the vegetables?!

    I'm protesting by eating a big steak. icon_lol.gif

    ya know, I find it funny, Peta will beat you over the head, they will go to the absolute extreme.. but what about the animals who are raised for food in a natural, sustainable kind way? hmmm

    all my meat is from chickens who are free to roam outside, to scratch in grass and dirt.. to find worms and have fun... my eggs come from there too

    my beef comes from cows who are kept in green pastures, raised by loving farmers who look after them and don't inject all sorts of chemicals needlessly..

    my pork comes from pigs who live one hell of a life, allowed to fully mature, keep in conditions that well.. they are as happy as pigs in mud I suppose...

    My lamb (well, actually mutton) comes from labs that are again, allowed to roam freely around massive paddocks..

    and when any of them are slaughtered, they are done so in a human way, they are treated gently and nicely...

    All my meat comes from these sorts of places, yeah, I pay well over twice more then main stream sources but its all better tasting!

    and before anyone comes asking could I kill an animal and eat it.. yes.. I could and I have..

    I can see the obvious attraction to superbowl audience

    But I can't help think that the message will fall on deaf ears given the majority of Vegan, Peta supporters seem to be teenage and college going girls........

    The result will be wow look at that slamming piece of ass, I think we need some more wings in here!

    It's like opening up a copy of vogue and seeing an ad for a playstation

    As one of my friends says:
    I didn't claw my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian!

    (And coming from him, Mr. Artsy Fartsy Fag, that was an unexpected stereotype buster.)

    I am a hypocritical vegetarian since the only meat I eat is cock.

    p.s. Eating meat isn't bad, treating animals in a cruel fashion is, but PETA doesn't understand that.

    I'll side with PETA the day they can successfully raise a carnivorous animal from birth to reach full life-expectancy on nothing but tofu.

    hmm...I feel like every time there is a thread about being a vegetarian or vegan that we could just copy and paste the previous jokes that make fun of it. They are the same ones. Might as well just say "Ditto, see previous thread". icon_wink.gif

    No shit. We need sticky posts.

    Let's go grab us some 32oz slabs of bloody, steaming meat and chew with our mouths open.

    None of this matters to PETA. PETA's figurehead, Dan Matthews, is the go-to guy when you want to learn more about the group. I"ve not looked online, but maybe there are some sites that house his media interviews? Ignore the hype and watch him in action. They're really not as bad as you think. They're quite good at the PR game, and are against mass, inhumane slaughtering. IMO, we would be a lot worse off without PETA around.

    At times, they can be a little ridiculous, and they don't seem to want to understand the value of meat protein. I mean, the human species is omniverous. I can't imagine too many of us would thrive on veggies alone.

    seems like a perfectly acceptable commercial. Good message as well.
    Go PETA!

    I thought those girls were gonna cook/bath with the vegetables... how in the WORLD is this supposed to convince someone to go vegan? icon_confused.gif


    This add is equivalent to saying," Become vegan and men will suddenly find you desirable." or, "Become vegan and double your breast size." icon_rolleyes.gif

    If they weren't such hypocrites, I might object to them less. But they've *caused* the deaths of thousands of lab animals... and worse cats that they "rescued" and then offed.

    i've never understood the outright vitriol you guys have towards peta. it betrays an ill-articulated sense of guilt or shame on your part. i eat meat, yes. it doesn't mean that i despise peta. get over yourselves. i know the vp of peta, and he's AMAZING. they do some intense work, but just like greenpeace, although i like the philosophy, i'm just not quite brave enough to do what they do. everyone has their "extremist" cause to fight for: aren't you the same commy leftist fags arguing for gay marriage a few months ago?

    How disturbing. I have never had these feelings before nor would I EVER entertain such feelings, but this PETA ad uses very curvy, attractive, and meaty women. I'm not bi, so no, I don't find them sexually attractive, but I do find them aesthetically pleasing....they look healthy, which is a trait I can appreciate in either sex. However, the situation, of them being alone in pretty vague suroundings with the exception of muted nuetrals, romantic lighting, and a churning hot tub created the strangest of settings. The models skills are actually very good: they don't come off overtly sexual, but rather very content in what they are doing....like it serves some higher purpose. The way they are oiling themselves down as if readying themselves for something. Had there been a male presence featured in this ad I could have understood and put two and two together: eating veggies gets them hot. However, that's not where my mind went: especially the image of the women pouring the ripe succulent vegetables into the churning hot tub.....It really did ignite my sense of smell: I could smell the pleasant aroma of a hearty base for soup. Hot tub in image only, it had now transformed into the most gigantic and tempting stew pot. Since I'm not a vegetarian, seeing the following images of the nubile goodlooking...delicious looking models oiling themselves up and essenitally seasoning themselves with raw vegetables by rubbing the vegetables against their smooth skin: I found myself getting VERY HUNGRY for everything featured in the commercial....everything!

    majority? i know plenty of male adult vegans, and female vegans who aren't teens

    are you referring to yourself? because you aren't a carnivore, you are an omnivore

    Ethical treatment of animals is a good thing. I think one of the best gifts PETA has given me is an awareness of my food source. Wether I am a vegan or not I want my food to have been grown in healthy, humane, and sustainable environment.
    If you are a vegan, but purchase vegetables or products that come from factory farms where labor laws are not respected and the soil is being soaked in petrolium based pesticides, you may want to consider local produce. Or purchase from companies that don't exploit their workers and follow organic practices.
    Same with meat factories which beat, deprive and superinject animals with hormones and antibiotics. Many of these also are notorious for having poor working conditions and rejecting unions. Would it be better to look for a product that does not carry the weight of this suffering. If you chose to eat meat consider the damage that piece of meat has inflicted.

    We boycott clothing stores when we are able to trace the item back to an unethical source. Why can't we do this with our food source. I am putting these thing in my body not only wearing them.
    If you don't believe animals deserve any consideration, consider the human cost of working in these horrible slaughter farms. Also think about the flavor of a cow who was beaten and pumped up with chemicals so that it can walk and pass inspection. A cow that ate pieces of other animals, concrete, petrolium and commercial feed. Now think how this meat would taste from a cow that did not suffer the same level of stress and deprivation and was raised on grass. The grass fed free range meat is superior. In taste and ethics
    My point is that we have choices. I chose to decrease the deprivation and corruption in our food supply by finding healthier, thoughtful choices.

    There is a great Bill Moyers podcast where he interviews Michael Pollan. National Food Fight 11/28 --Check it out.

    my beef comes from cow...


    What's funny about it. Many people believe and are willing to follow through with their conviction of not killing animals. It should be a stretch of the imagination that people feel this way.
    Many support the death penalty, but are against abortion. Others support the life of the adult human as well as the life of the unborn.
    Life is a delicate thing and we are all vulnerable to losing it. Why are people who see the life of animals as an extension of our on existence on this planet?
    Why is it a far fetched idea that is is not acceptable to use animals for our gratification? Some Christians have cited the bible to me as proof that we have a god given right to use up the earth.
    Why is it so hard to envision alternatives?
    It is the sheep mentality to resist a radically progressive idea, that leads some individuals to ridicule an organization like PETA.
    I am sure you are a healthier person for eating a better quality of meat. You have made an alternative choice to the factory meat. PETA wants to make an alternative choice to your type of meat. By the way PETA has many supporters. It is not a roomful of wackos.
