I just thought I would put in that I am vegetarian, not vegan, but I have NEVER liked PETA. I stopped eating meat because I watched a documentary on slaughterhouses, and as much as I wish I did, I can't stand the taste of fish..
I'm sure not everyone associated with PETA is a jerk but when they have people going around throwing "blood" on people for eating meat, or wearing fur. Being a jerk like that won't get people to see your side or their side. It will only make the whole of the group look like a huge group inconsiderate jerks. If they were truly set in their cause then they would find better ways to prove it.
Way before our "concrete jungles" people hunted, ate meat, and wore the furs... it's...what is it called...oh yeah, SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST. Just because we have thumbs doesn't mean we aren't animals....
I don't hate those who eat meat. So what. Its a personal choice. Not everyone likes to eat rabbit food all day.. :)
