Either this dispels the rumor that blacks like chicken or it is self-evidently false.

I thought about this topic (for at least a minute), and could not make sense of the reasoning. Everyone eats chicken, except for vegans, so are vegans comparing themselves to everyone else? And, how would they know? Most vegans are female, so I assume these women conducted their research physically for their report to be accurate. So, that leads me to believe that most vegans have venereal diseases, among other critters that invade their bodies.

Here is the funny part. It isn't the chicken wings but the celery you eat with it. Celery contains large amounts of estrogen.

It is the veg you eat with the wings that is the culprit.

Someone one here - yesterday or the day before? - commented on one of the MLK threads that every worthwhile thing eventually gets jacked by extremists.

PETA - in it's original form - had a platform that I think no one here would disagree with. Treat animals fairly, raise them right and with no stress, slaughter them cleanly, don't waste (Thinking of the fur trade here, but it applies equally to slaughterhouses). Nothing at all wrong with that message.

Then the anti meat brigade got involved and slowly took over. Fortunately, the most passionate ones - the vegans - can be knocked down with a hard look.

It's that old slippery slope that the do-gooders don't think about. It's happened over and over, particularly with Roe vs Wade, among other liberal issues.

Perhaps... I really don't think they believe anything they say at all anymore. As it's been reported, if animals are left in PETA's care, most of the time they end up dead-- totally contrary to their stated mission. I understand PETA isn't a rescue shelter or anything like that, but at least they could build a network with those organizations that are so that they could stick to their mission without the blatant hypocrisy.

These days, it seems all PETA wants to do is sexualize everything, as if perverts have taken over the organization.

You'd think that would be the first thing they'd have done. There are a lot of no kill shelters out there, for everything from snakes to cows and PETA could be an invaluable resource.

As for the sexualization - I think it is an appeal for attention in an increasingly sexualized society. Some of the ads are well done.

Perhaps pregnant women should dine on turkey drumsticks instead.

Or perhaps, hot Buffalo wings might mitigate the effect.

I love animals. Some are cute and lovely. Others are dumb, but tasty.

Regardless, the people at PETA are clearly a breast short of a chicken sandwich.
