PETA is at it again. This time the faux outrage is about milk, cow milk that is. Not only has PETA encouraged Ben & Jerry’s to use human breast milk in their ice cream, but PETA has also decided to put up billboards blaming autism on the consumption of cow’s milk.
If ever there was a group that is a billboard for being clueless it’s PETA. All you have to do to realize this is that PETA never uses the bodies of men nor specifically attacks men in any of it’s “projects”. (Women make the majority of household purchases and are considered by the majority of the public to be more responsible for children than men so even ads about the welfare of children by PETA are targeting mothers, not fathers).
What they are is the target market for this exploitation of human women, a group that has been and continues to be exploited by human men for their own end. PETA’s response to being reminded of this?
While cruelty to animals is a serious matter that should elicit widespread public outrage, efforts to reach the public through more serious means often fall on deaf ears in a world in which sex sells and there are both a war and an economic downturn.
Shorter PETA: Exploiting women is a-okay if it’s for a “serious matter”.
And that’s the problem with PETA. It has no respect for women and refuses to understand that sexism is wrong in and of itself. Women are not animated blow up dolls to put on display so that men can figure out that a certain action/deed is perhaps something they ought not do.
And to put it bluntly – if human men never learn to quit treating human women like property, how in fucks sake are they ever going to learn to quit treating other species in the same manner? It’s like teaching a guy that kicking dogs is bad by kicking a cat!
So, I’d say they won’t learn anything which means PETA’s work will never be done.
