PETA Is Full of He, She, It

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ request to AP Stylebook editor Norm Goldstein to change the guide to dictate that pronouns referring to animals always be "he," "she," and "who" would seem silly enough. But what makes it super-silly--which is to say, PETA-silly—is that the guide pretty much already does so. Check out the full story here.

Save the plankton. Eat the whales.

This is just stupid. As I was taught in journalism class, news stories are supposed to be free of bias. Why change the AP stylebook simply to reflect the bias of one group?

George Steiner

I'd like to get a copy of the court decision which elevates the property status of animals to a higher plane. PETA neglects to give a cite (nothing usual there folks!)Next stop are lawsuits against eating meatand wearing leather.

Any PETA person who accepts medical care or uses any medicine in any form is a phony and a class A hypocrite. Why? Because all medicines and medical procedures are tested on animals first. They are benefitting from this.

I remember reading recently that those who are critical of hunting have removed themselves so far from the killing that they forget that even their non-meat-eating ways kill- what animals and how many were killed so the vast fields of grain they consume can be harvested? Do they believe farmers shoo away the wildlife?And what about the pest control? of course it could ONLY be organic, but that kills the bugs too! The truth is for us to live, others must die. That can mean a nice steak, a tasty pheasant, or bean curd, either way, some creature has to give up its' life- directly via my shotgun, at the slaughterhouse, or by displacement.

To RJ Arena... I've been trying to find the right words to describe how the Peta cause kills more wildlife than my hunting does. Your words are a perfect fit! Peta(Program that Educates Total [email protected]#%$s) don't realize that if they have a house they destroyed land that animals used to live on, the wood in that house came from trees that animals needed to survive, etc... It's okay for them but not the rest of the world. Peta is the most lying, hypocritical, STUPID, two-faced organization on this planet, that they do more harm than good. They insist that they don't have enough money to open or fund care for dogs or cats, but yet their president and vice president have an annual salary of more than 5 million dollars!?? I believe their true purpose is to show the world just how un-educated their cause really is, and to prey on the youths(in elementary schools). Thanks for writing your opinion, it should hit home. -Dan

Animals are not human!

RJ Arena

Dan,
You are welcome.

I beleive in animals rights and I hate crulity to animals, but some of the nonesense PETA tries is just down right stupid.

The People for the Equal Trashing of ArmedAmericans is forever going to try to get the uninformed public (non-hunters) to believe their B.S. and will try their darndest to increase their numbers. We as ethical hunters and sportsmen and sportswomen should do our darndest to educate the uninformed public (non-hunters) to our own beliefs and practices in a non-Bubba Big Hunter in a 10ft.fence sort of way (which is one of the reasons this has all started!!) and show the non-hunting public where our rightful place in the food chain is. I also think it would be fun to create a PETA PAPARATZEE to follow these people to restrants and back yard bbq's,take some photos of our friends stuffing their mouths with (gasp) store bought meats and then run a few cute AP stories of our own.
