PETA has officially shaken the beehive.

  • Mood: Pride
  • Playing: Kid Icarus: Uprising
  • Drinking: Water


Nintendo is not even slightly amused by PETA's Pokemon Parody. --> www.zeldainformer.com/news/com…

I know a good amount about copyright law, and in general what is OK and what isn't, and even I wondered how PETA "got away" with this far-too-identical "parody". I figured they HAD to have gotten some amazing lawyer to find some loopholes. But if PETA has actually taken a step too far in this case, and actually infringed on Nintendo's copyrights, PETA is in for a shitstorm.

They just fucked with the same company that FORCED A MAN TO PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE FOR MAKING BOOTLEG MARIO GAMES, THEN GOT HIS PIRATE ASS DEPORTED.
(I wanted to link to a source for this, but I couldn't find one - does anyone else know where I can find an article about this? I remember the apology letter being in Nintendo Power. It was so fucking sweet, Nintendo is bad ass.)

Nintendo is not a company to fuck with.

Holy shit, if Nintendo is the company that finally makes PETA pay...
Oh god, the thought of it is so sweet I may have to fap to it.

Oh please let PETA have fucked up. OH PLEASE.
Let Nintendo have a foothold to get in there and seriously FUCK UP THEIR SHIT.

I won't feel satisfied until Sir Reggie Fils-Aimee personally punches Ingrid Newkirk in the face.

(THANK YOU FOR THE HEADS-UP, Watarimono-nyan!!!)

PETA stands for "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals".
On the surface, they look like a nice organization that fights to keep animals free from pain and suffering, from becoming meat, coats, and science experiments.

But if you look into them, they also have twisted desires, like for all domesticated animals (dogs, cats, etc) to go extinct, and for no one to have pets. To achieve this goal, they euthanize most of the pet animals that come into their care, even if they are healthy, just because being a pet is a humiliation in their eyes. (I think 98% of what they rescue are killed - the number is in the thousands!)

They also abuse the donations they get from well-meaning animal lovers, and of course, they lie about all of this.

So, I am not a huge fan of their organization. xD

Yeah. I am all for animal rights and such, but PETA isn't about animals rights, it's about a bunch of mentally disturbed people using animals as a way to get attention and money.

I have NO respect for them whatsoever.

I can honestly admit that if a kitten and baby were drowning, and I could only choose to save one, I would have a hard time choosing. No lie. But not even I support PETA and their stupidness, and I'm all for beating the shit out anyone who hurts an animal; and that includes harm that isn't just physical.

I hope Nintendo makes them hurt.

I think you might mean that you are for animal welfare, not animal rights. Animal rights would include the right to not be owned as a pet, and I think that is where they go too far. Although I am not
vegetarian myself, I can understand people's desire to stop others from eating animals, but most animal lovers don't find owning a pet to be a form of cruelty.

I used to think I supported animal rights, but I don't, its animal WELFARE that I support. xD

If I were in such a situation as you mentioned i'd have a hard time, too. if the mother of the child were there screaming, i'd probably go for the child because I have pity for the parent and the aftermath for them of losing the child. But as lifeforms, I see a kitten and a child as about equals, unless I knew one or the other on a more personal level. Then you can also get into their futures, and how the child may grow up to be either a hero or a murderer...etc, whereas the cat is just going to be a harmless cat regardless...but that might be overthinking things. xD

Sounds like PETA made up some bullshit about what animals "rights" mean. But that's not a surprise.

And I agree with you. Obviously a screaming mother would influence my decision.

I believe that there are some animals on this planet that were meant to be food. I hate knowing that they were killed and such... but I also know that humans need the protein that animals provide. Yes, there are other ways to get it, but it is a lot harder. As long as I don't think about animals being killed, I can eat meat... I feel bad for pigs and cows... but not so much chickens... Don't know why though.

Definitely, but since Animal Rights also includes the right not to be eaten as meat, I see now for sure that you can't possibly mean that you fight for Animal Rights, but for Animal Welfare, which I find to be a much more sane cause. xD So in my opinion, you're doing it right.

Although again, I can't fault people who don't eat meat themselves. I can understand that.

I remember that scientists were working on ways to grow meat in laboratories. Same nutrition, but without needing to kill a living animal. PETA opposed this research because, and I quote, "they could make dog meat that way!" ....If a dog didn't have to die to make the dog meat, WHO THE F*CK CARES? I don't understand PETA at all.

As far as slaughter goes, pigs and cows have FAR better lives than chickens - in fact, thanks to a woman named Temple Grandin, cattle slaughter is getting more humane now than anyone ever thought possible. But chickens, she admits, almost can't be helped. The demand for their meat is so high that even she can't find a way to house and kill them humanely while still keeping up with demand.

So, in truth, it should be the chicken you sympathize with more! xD But I know what you mean. You just don't see as much of a companion in the chicken as you do in a pig or cow. It makes sense to me. We all have our bias. Although I still maintain that it's wrong to tell someone in another culture that they can't eat [enter species here], meanwhile we are eating pigs and cows, you know what I mean? x3

I get what you are saying. I'm still hard headed about the Chinese eating dogs and cats though, or the Japanese killing and eating dolphins. I will never be okay with that. I believe there are SOME animals meant to be eaten. But those three are NOT.

I always thought that chickens were the most humane, considering they just get their heads chopped off. Quick and painless... But maybe I am wrong... I heard that cows had their throats slit, and I always thought that was much worse...

Ehh, I can't see that, but ONLY because people eat pigs, and pigs are more intelligent than dogs. x3 So, the way I see it, it's not fair for people to defend dogs when no one (except maybe vegetarians) defends pigs.

The way I see it, since we eat pigs, the only ways to judge an animal not fit for consumption are endangered status or poison. xD Intelligence CLEARLY isn't a factor, since everyone has no qualms with bacon. x3

If you on a personal level won't eat a certain animal (I have a few I'd not want to eat, too), that's totally fine, everyone has their limits. But I feel like i can't tell someone else not to eat [species] when I go around eating [species] with no problem.

Just think about it - cows are sacred in the Hindu religion, how do you think they feel about us eating them?

Chickens are treated poorly while they are alive, it's not so much what happens when they are killed. And whoever told you that cows have their throats slit has not given you the full story. Cows must die from a slit throat in order to be considered "halal", which is only necessary for certain religions. The cows that you and I eat are stunned with a mechanical hammer blow to the skull, and then they are bled out while they are unconscious.

When done right, which is 98% of the time (the industry can't afford to require a 100% accuracy rating, unfortunately), the cows feel absolutely nothing, and when raised using Grandin's techniques, they are also very rarely stressed or hurt during their lives. Luckily, most meat processing plants in this country (including those used by McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King!) use her humane methods. So things are getting a lot better for cows, but unfortunately the same can't be said for chickens. D:

I didn't realize that chickens were so poorly treated. The place I buy my chickens from advertises that their chickens are treated well, in a low stress environment, with no dangerous chemicals or hormones added to them. Their chicken cost a bit less than the store bought stuff, and the farmer himself delivers the chickens to his customers via a big truck with a large freezer in the back.

I admit though, if I could stop eating meat I would. But vegetables and the like don't fill me up, so I'm hungry ALL THE TIME, and I can't be bothered at the moment to be eating something every 2 hours with my medical conditions.

On another note, as much as I like pork, I try to avoid it because I love pigs, and pork really isn't that good for you.

The reason for so many different sorts of cats and dogs is because of breeding. The breeding was to acquire animals that could live with people (though there are some people that just did it for experiment reasons). Cows and pigs are not bred for pets, nor are chickens. That to me helps define the difference.

Hindus believe in reincarnation, and that by killing a cow they could be killing a relative. That's a little different than historical/scientific reasons for choosing which animals to consume.

The only reason I can eat pork is because I was raised on it, which could be a valid argument for any country. The difference is that I am actively trying to consume less and less of it.

But I suppose we could go about this for days and days. In short, if I was told that if I stopped eating certain animals that other people would stop eating cats and dogs, I would give up meat in a heart beat. Eating pets is wrong. Specific animals were chosen as food thousands of years ago, and those tend to be what we classify as 'farm animals' today or some forest animals. Grabbing random animals that are strays, who are walking around your neighbourhood to slaughter and sell, is NOT the same thing as raising specific choices for mass consumption. At least not to me. Besides, these places that grab cats and dogs off the streets to eat have TERRIBLE reputations, and are unhealthy, don't keep their restaurants clean etc etc. No. Just no.

Your argument makes sense, and it's one I've thought of, too,. It's the more intelligent and sensical of the arguments I've heard.

However, the domesticated rat was bred as a pet for royals, and is today considered by most people to be nothing but snake food, so even that thinking doesn't save an animal. Most people wouldn't fight for the domestic rat - and therefore those same people can't possibly fight for the dog without looking like hypocrites to me.

The argument I more commonly hear is that "such-and-such" animal is "too intelligent/social" to eat. Go tell someone who owns a pig as a pet that the dog is sacred, but his pet is not! xD Pigs are more intelligent, and just as social, as any dog.

And although dogs were bred specifically as companions, almost any animal can become a beloved pet - and once it does, perceptions change.

And you bring up the idea that the Hindu view of the cow as sacred is less scientific than the view of the domestic dog as being bred as a companion, but a lot of other people's immediate reaction to hearing about dogs being eaten is also STRICTLY on an emotional level - and it's those immediate emotional reactions that I have a problem with. To me, their desire to protect the dog is just as fanciful as "it could be a relative". They see the dog as a sacred family member, and the cow as some far-away animal they will never bond with. You, however, are taking a more objective view, and I like that. That's how I wish more people saw things instead of relying on emotion alone, which is why people sign petitions to save horses from slaughter, but think nothing of the cow, which is scientifically proven to be a smarter animal.

I still stand by the idea that it's hypocritical to tell someone that they can't eat dogs when I'm not a vegetarian myself, but I see your point and I also agree with it - it just doesn't override my feeling of hypocrisy.

And your point of animals being bred specifically for food vs. pet is ESPECIALLY true today, where most foodstock can't even SURVIVE past maturity because of all of the specifically bred genetic flaws that make them more "fruitful". So there's also the fact that killing them is almost a mercy, they are so genetically warped - although of course, organizations like PETA would prefer that they didn't exist at all, and as much as I hate PETA, I kind of see their point on that one. xD

Truth be told, I wish we were a more sparse population and could get all our food from hunting - hunted food tastes better anyway, honestly. I have a hard time eating farmed beef when I know that hunted deer is just so much better tasting. It's like, no contest. xD Plus, I like the idea that all hunted animals have the chance to escape, and even if they don't, at least they lived their lives freely.

PETA quit being PETA a long time ago, despite their non-profit claim, they're in it for the money, helping animals are no longer a top priority with them. There are many better organizations to donate money to if you're interesting in helping animals, your local SPCA comes to mind.

The same people who torture animals at least a good half of the time in order to make the videos to get money.
The same people who kill the animals they get a hold of to 'free' them from the 'indignity' of being pets, as if said pets aren't smart enough to know that (in the vast majority of cases), they have a pretty cushy deal and their owners worship them as the furry gods they are. XD

I only JUST found out about this, and I was so disgusted. I can't even believe it. I mean, animal activists can do some fucked up shit, but this just...blew my fucking mind. I know they have no regard for human life, but apparently none for animal life, either, which...fucking...what...?

"The end justifies the means", they say.
"Accomplishing our goal of saving animals is worth torturing and killing animals." is what they mean.

And to them, that makes perfect. fucking. sense.

Agreed. Nintendo, seriously. Fuck up their shit.

But there is a huge difference between PETA and the ASPCA. One is a legitimate organization. The other is a company of insane people who want to liberate our pets. xD
