junkster, I second your thoughts completely. The worst part of PETA is that non-vegetarians tend to think PETA speaks for all of us, and that everything vegan or vegetarian is somehow PETA's doing. It's amazing what sorts of things people ascribe to PETA -- I've been told before in all seriousness (by a meat-eater, of course) that PETA was the legitimate face of the Animal Liberation Front. Even in this discussion, Theoform comments on how well he thinks the phrase 'Militant Vegan Fuckers' describes PETA. 'Militant'! PETA is about as militant as Cosmo. (Actually, it's like Cosmo in a lot of ways, now that I think about it.) PETA is the unradical radical group that eschews thinking and reduces all social problems to pithy one-liners.
Non-veggies: please realize that many of us wacko vegans and vegetarians think that PETA is dumber and more annoying than you do. More importantly, realize that their stupid slogans don't justify you in dismissing vegetarianism.
