This is hilarious. PETA has asked a major ice-cream manufacturer to stop using cow's milk in its recipes. The group would like to replace it with human milk.
You see, cow's milk has been linked to lots of bad things, like allergies and obesity. How nice of PETA to have our health in mind!
But wait! There's more!
You see, the current system of getting cow's milk is cruel. They are forcefully impregnated. Violated! Don't you see? Forcing cows to produce 10 times as much milk as they normally would is just sick. Paying HUMANS to produce an even larger amount of milk, on the other hand, is totally normal. Much more normal than, say, cutting back on ice cream or switching to soy.
PETA disgusts me for many reasons, but one of the biggest is the fact that they have no shame about objectifying women through their advertising:
- The "Amber's Bored With Clothes" striptease quiz about cruelty to animals.
- Bikini babes in cages to protest the fact that people eat eggs.
- Speaking of chickens: Inflatable sex dolls to be used with the slogan "KFC Blows".
- And lots and lots of photos of naked women who'd rather not wear fur.
No matter what the anti-sealing weirdos think, I am not in favour of cruelty to animals. However, I cannot get on board with any campaign that protests the shocking degradation of animals by degrading humans in a shocking way. When we all understand that PETA will do just about anything to get money out of our pockets, we will all be much better off.
Thanks for your question.
