PETA losing their shit again

Postby LechoZX » Fri Sep 30, 2011 4:44 pm

Is this chicken too sexy? PETA thinks so..
by Piper Weiss, Shine Staff, 19 hours ago

The "pin-up" style photo of a raw chicken lounging seductively ran in Wednesday's food section of the New York Times along with a story on the appeal of crispy, savory chicken skin. Now the animal cruelty prevention organization is aiming their laser-beam target at the old gray lady.

"When I saw it I just couldn't believe that an editor of 'The New York Times' would find it acceptable," PETA's founder and president Ingrid Newkirk told The Atlantic Wire. "It's downright offensive, not just to people who care about animals but almost to everyone. It's a plucked, beheaded, young chicken in a young pose," she said.

Tina Loit, the Times photo editor who commissioned the shoot didn't see it that way. "That chicken had attitude," she said of the model, who was propped into a come-hither position with the help of weights and wire.

The image was intended as a humorous, eye-catching approach to your standard food fetish art. But PETA's Newkirk is calling it necrophilia.

Maybe he's mad that the Times stole a signature PETA move. For years, their print and commercial campaigns have relied on sex, particularly naked women, to attract media attention. Sex has become so synonymous with PETA, they're launching a pornography site linked, inexplicably, to their animal rights message. So what's so bad about a lounging chicken?

If anything, PETA should be thanking the Times. After staring long enough at the photo of this goose-pimpled, cross-legged, headless harlot, I may never eat another chicken again.


PETA is become as insane as the WBC. I know I am posting this, but I wish people would just ignore them from now on.

The thing is with NYC local news shows they have to keep on blabbing away for hours early in the morning with good natured banter and they screw up all the time.

Not NYC local but the same idea.

I've killed more critters than I care to remember and will continue to do so but I see why the twisting of that image is gratuitous and disrespectful.

PETA use Police to bully family

Postby coldharvest » Wed Oct 05, 2011 8:50 am

Look at the photo below and you'll see her—in between the fertilizer spreader and the recycling bin. No, that's not a stuffed rabbit in the tiny cage behind the plastic toy truck—that's a living, breathing being consigned to a miserable, lonely existence along with the other things people stick outside and forget about. This rabbit was never allowed out of the cramped metal cage, and aside from her owner's tossing her some food and water once in awhile, she never received any attention at all.
Image
A concerned person saw the bunny and knew that with the harsh northern winter already knocking on the door and only an open staircase for "shelter," the rabbit might not live to see another Easter. She tried talking the owner into surrendering the rabbit to her, to no avail. She called PETA for help, and working with local law enforcement, we put pressure on the owner to provide a suitable home for the rabbit. The owner soon tired of hearing from both PETA and the police and agreed to surrender the rabbit into her rescuer's waiting arms.

Now the bunny is living the sweet life indoors because of one woman's persistence and dedication to justice for animals. She is proof positive that even if you can't change the entire world, with a little work, you can change one animal's entire world.

Good on them. That is the sort of thing PETA should be concerned about not dumbass publicity. They think animals should be treated the same as humans. That is retarded, but they should be treated with respect and not as property. That's why I support ASPCA instead.

Is we, you?
