I got this from here . As a vegan who supports animal rights I do not support this image. This was supposed to be used in a Poe house or Poe museum or something related to Poe.
Now, not only is PETA trampling on the rights of women with their sexist lettuce lady campaign, they make Poe fans everywhere look all shaky and epileptic. PETA is so fucking narrow minded on how to get people to change diets they use the most absurd, laughable strategies imaginable. It doesn’t make them look like an animal rights group, it makes them look like a bunch of clowns. The kind of clowns where they get trampled by bulls in a rodeo. It’s not pretty to look at. It’s just fucking sad and fucking pathetic.
Anyway, people SHOULD go vegetarian, but they should use their own good, goddamned common sense than PETA. Sometimes I wonder if PETA is funded by people who are AGAINST animal rights, because it makes vegetarians and vegans everywhere look fool hearty and idiotic. I do not want to be associated with such a group.
So Elyse made me vegan shortbread cookies for Valentine’s Day!! She also got me a 3D doodling set, and a recipe book from Babycakes. If you knew what these cookies tasted like, you’d be so fucking jealous. It’s like eating a mouthful of awesome!!!!!! :D
So one of my good friends, Anthony Poynter, got diagnosed with some crazy cancer yesterday. Cancer is really fucking lame. I don’t understand how someone who’s straight-edge and vegan gets cancer?!? It blows my fucking mind.
There’s a comp that’s coming out to raise money for Anthony. Here’s a facebook link about it.
This morning I was reading my news like I usually do and I read that you are starting a new campaign. This campaign will combine pornography and animal rights abuses under a triple .xxx domain website.I understand that the logical behind this reasoning is to tap into a new audience that may not necessarily see the importance of animal rights.
Are you fucking serious?
The exploitation of animals is no laughing matter, but with this new campaign you make vegetarians, vegans, and animal rights advocates, looking like a bunch of fucking clowns. CLOWNS.
You know who you should read? Carol J. Adams. She wrote this great book called “The Sexual Politics of Meat” and she examines, through a eco-feminist lens, how misogyny and meat-eating go hand in hand. She even made a great blog post about your “sexy” ad campaign, and how sex doesn’t need to be used to advocate for animals.
I also actually have a cousin who is involved with PETA, and we got in this discussion about the use of sex in advertising campaigns. I told her that animal rights shouldn’t come at the cost of human rights. You can’t exploit women’s bodies to gain awareness on animal rights. You’re not going to change anyone’s minds about their diet. You have changed my mind, and that of other than my own and the countless otheractivists, who think y’all have gone beyond a fucking joke to being a parody of yourself.
A Center of Consumer Freedom spokesman said this: “They don’t seem to be changing the debate anymore, I think in large part because people are writing them off as whack jobs.”
Indeed. Only whack jobs would find the appropriateness of placing porn and animal abuse videos side by side. If you don’t understand the mindlessness of that, then you don’t have any right defending animals.
One Last Wish - My Better Half
Me and Elyse made a pineapple cashew stir fry with quinoa and listened to Hoover, Jawbox, Karate, Fleetwood Mac, and this band, One Last Wish. Surprised I haven’t heard them before and I’m a pretty big Fugazi fan.Anyhow, it was a great dinner and we felt like freshmen in college.
