    PETA is so incompetent that it would be funny if they were so dangerous. A few years ago they burned down a building here at the University of Washington, but they got the wrong building and ended up destroying a bunch of research on poplar trees.

    what made them so popular?

    I’m not sure if you’re joking… en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Populus

    I think he meant what makes PETA so popular. Maybe not.

    My answer to if he meant PETA is: propaganda and brainwashing, just like any other evangelical group.

    ….he was obviously making a bad pun.

    So burning up some tree research wasn’t their intended porpoise?

    Not to mention, PETA Senior Vice President MaryBeth Sweetland depends on insulin, which was tested on animals.

    PETA: Making vegetarians look like crazy nutjobs since 1980 (the date is not quite right, in the beginning they actually went after some awful stuff, but quickly devolved into OMGWTFNUTS)

    I just lol’d hard. That deserves a beer. RSI is okay, even if he does dislike the evangeline lillies. I mean, evangelicals.

    Good thing you corrected that. I fucking Evangeline Lily!

    lol… There is a lot of irrelevant and flawed premises in this poster. However no less than what Peta spreads in their ridiculous political campaign material. So I guess it’s all good.

    Moving on…

    What’s flawed? I know next to nothing about PeTA.

    Predominantly the idea that because they put down animals, they aren’t so purist as they claim. Those animal shelters that “refuse” to kill un-adopted animals don’t have the balls to admit that they are hypocrits. The fact is, a lot more pet-species animals are born every year than there exist homes that decide they want to adopt a pet during said year. supply exceeds demand, and thus some of the animals are not going to be adopted, and thus must be cared for indefinitely or be put down. The “no kill” clinics just push that burden onto the clinics which… Read more »

    The Humane Societies don’t have a no kill rule, yet they manage to adopt out much more than 3% of their intake (and keep tabs on those that are adopted). Plus most of the Humane Societies in the US will spay/neuter at a reduced price if you can’t afford it.

    Well let’s take Ingrid Newkirks choice to get sterilized. What bearing does this have on anything? I can think of many good reasons to take that position, and hers were quite valid. She did not feel it would be ethical to give birth to a child when there were so many that need adoption. Fair enough. In this poster, this position is being used ad hominem, to imply she is a horrible woman who cares nothing for animals. And then we have the premise that all PETA members believe that no animal use is ethical. I find it extremely hard… Read more »

    Ok on your first two points. But, I think you’d be surprised how many people adopt from the Humane Society precisely because they’ve been abused and/or neglected. Every animal (except one)I have adopted has come from the Humane Society or ASPCA. Any animal they get in, they evaluate it medically, emotionally and psychiatric-ally (or whatever they call it for animals). If it is determined to be too far gone, aggressive or in any way un-adoptable, they euthanize. For the rest they will give them the medical care they need (including spay/neuter), any training needed, try to bring them back emotionally.… Read more »

    I think you are in the minority Nyokki. Unfortunately I’ve known a lot of people who are animal lovers because they are kawaii, not because they are the underdog. They are like vegetarians who can’t eat meat because they can’t get the picture of Bambi out of their heads. But they’ll eat fish, not problem. Unless they’ve seen Nemo. Then they go completely vegan. :/ I’ll grant you that PETA could probably pour more cash into evaluation and rehab. Or even free spaying and neutering. But have you looked at the statistics? The vast majority of pet owners do not… Read more »

    “I think you are in the minority Nyokki”

    …and I think you’d be very surprised if you checked up on your assumptions…

    My argument is based on statistics, not assumptions. Do the research. Petas numbers may be horrifying, but the overall statistics tell the whole story. Go to any animal control, humane society or ASPCA website and look at the numbers yourself. The numbers speak for themselves. I realize I can be overly clinical about emotional topics, and for that I apologize. However the sad truth is that it seems that many people appear more concerned about the negative emotions they will feel from the thought of killing of so many poor defenseless animals, than the actual well being, or preventing the… Read more »

    You do not have to apologize for being rational in an argument, regardless of subject matter.

    I think Reboot and the creator of the infographic must have both seen the Penn and Teller Bullshit episode about PETA. That is my favorite episode. Everyone go watch it NOW!

    One thing, though: the creator of this totally unzips his/her fly with that bit @ the end about Newkirk’s “sterilization”…wtf does that have to do with animals? Are you trying to paint her as some anti-life zombie? At least she’s not getting abortions.

    I took it as an example of her extreme views in general. She’s not subtle.
