The lesson I’m learning this year.
yes well to be honest I don’t get it either. Personally I am all for peta I am actually an activist for them, so I don’t really understand why people don’t like them.. They want the same thing as everyone else essentially they just want to save animals like us. I think most people don’t think that they are going about it the right way, with over sexualizing certain advertisements but personally I think they are fine and I appreciate how they help animals because at the end of the day isn’t that what we all want?
PETA kills animals. PETA objectifies women. They also have a fat shaming ad. PETA has a pretty shitty stance on pit bulls (of course I agree with the ban on breeding, but that holds true for any dog/cat since they are overpopulated). Fun fact: Ingrid Newkirk was attacked by a pit bull. Gee, I wonder why she wants them dead. Yes, they do have great resources. Yes, they have done a lot in terms of education and investigations. But let’s be real here, they suck. A lot.
There are much better organizations out there that don’t euthanize most of the animals they get, and that don’t objectify women. I am sorry, but an AR group objectifying women pretty much means they don’t believe in the equal treatment of human beings. So…f that.
Here is a post I made about PETA, it has pretty much the same info as above.
thankyou for the information, I will look at it now xx
end peta and let something better take its place
- Don’t let your kids become hookers
- Anti-fur: women vs men
- Fur is a drag
- Sometimes big bright packages contain dirty little secrets
- Eating meat got you down?
- Comparing PoCs to an exotic "subspecies"
- Singling out foreign cultures and communities
- Welfarism is absolute garbage. Don’t applaud speciesism.
There’s plenty more, but that’s a decent start in addition to the above.
it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.
When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
"Les femmes ont peur de rencontrer un tueur en série. Les hommes ont peur de rencontrer quelqu’un de gros"
When Strangers Click (Quand des étrangers cliquent) , un documentaire de 2011 à propos des sites de rencontre.
Ca me rappelle une célèbre citation de Margaret Atwood: “Les hommes ont peur que les femmes se moquent d’eux. Les femmes ont peur que les hommes les tuent”. Ceci me rappelle également quelque chose d’écrit au sujet des problèmes du travail du sexe: “La misandrie irrite. La misogynie tue”.
