I never knew I needed an angry owo in my life
When they get a little ~too deep~
Now that's an ANGRY BIRD
Elmo loves to go Dicko Mode on me

Hhahah underrated post^
He’s in love with who I am
Back in high school I used to jerk him with my hands
He already was in sicko mode
Ok, but I’ll stick to eating meat
Bruh, how is the majority of your post history a copy pasted borderline-copypasta message? Calm the fuck down, g. Life is so much more then being vegan.
Animal rights are good and I totally support animal rights and the humane treatment of animals. But PETA goes way to far in their activism. They want to force people to live a certain way
That's the same argument the confederacy used to defend their right to own slaves. How well does it hold up?
It’s also the same argument used to support reproductive rights, gun rights, and practically any right Americans possess.
Not really - those rights do not necessitate the involvement of an innocent third party victim.
You want to explain why Snopes has found incidents of PETA workers stealing pets?
There’s plenty of evidence besides Richard Burman’s website. I think your the one that’s been brainwashed
Elmo has offcially gone Sucko mode
Markdown is hard.
Elmo came with the AK-47
I will not upvote this so it can be in 666 forever.
No more upvotes guys
PS: I'm Satan
Thank you elmo, your daily 50.000 pounds of cocaïne is free today
Elmo appreciates that
I mean if you're selling 50,000 pounds of cocaine a day, you can probably afford to give it out for free sometimes
It was a joke
Most people who disagree with Peta on mostly agree with what they want but they hate the way they do it.
And even if it isn't a conspiracy but it surely is cherrypicking, the hate inls mostly on the internet and how do you influence in a way that most "memelords" hate you? The internet is chaos
And next time have better grammar, got a stroke from that
Hello, fellow homosexuals. It is us, [MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR CORPORATION]. Here to remind you that we support your lifestyle now that it has been federally legalised and it is completely socially safe, allowing for us to capitalise on your existence now it's mainstream. Look, we even changed the colours of [LOGO]! Why did we wait this long to come out and 'support' you? Haha, no more questions, homosexual. Buy our product. Buy our product. BUY OUR PRODUCT.
Lies, PETA only supports animals who are in the LGBT+ community
Like the gay penguins in parks and rec
I can get behind that
I dunno, sounds pretty gay
Dolphins are gay sharks
Can’t argue with that
Bro.. Hide your username... the mods could be everywhere

Just saw your username lol
Happy pride month!
and okay I guess haha
the gay frogs
So everyone in the LGBT community? /S
That’s why they kill the remaining 60% 🕺
But... PETA is not a corporation???
They'll do anything to get people to listen
Peta has supported LGBT for a long time
That company has nothing to do with the lgbt community and is filled with many different people, some of which might hate lgbt people. I don't see why peta or any corporation has to show support when it's clearly unrelated to it. Corporations aren't people, they don't have an opinion about everything and IMO shouldn't have an opinion about everything, only about the things that relate to them. Seems like just a cheap way to get people to support them.
I agree but whether you love or hate corporations, their advocacy helps to normalize LGBTQ+ people which provides a net benefit to the community as a result. Representation is an important catalyst towards progress
including killing the vast majority of their animals
oh my god, this again?
they take in a very high number of sick animals that other shelters won’t take. they also give them a dignified death. they aren’t trying to run an adoption shelter.
if you want to get angry at anything, get angry at puppy mills and the staggering number of people whose animals pump out babies because they refuse to get them fixed.
Puppy mills: I sleep
Global animal holocaust: I sleep
Anthropogenic climate change: I sleep
PETA putting down sick abandoned animals: REAL SHIT?
Hey man, people just wanna feel vindicated about their lack of action in regards to widespread animal abuse. Can't fault them really 🤷
What do you expect people to do exactly?
Maybe start by not taking cheap shots at one of the few orgs actually doing something.
Having a serious bout of cognitive dissonance rn, kind of trippy seeing in this one thread that Peta is in fact misjudged and villified.
You think peta, an organization that makes propaganda about super Mario being a murderous psychopath for wearing a tanuki suit, is a benign organization that just wants to help the world? They're an outrage machine and you're one of the morons that bought their bullshit despite the leagues of evidence that show how awful they are.
Any number of things: caring at all, for example: You could just talk about it more, and keep the general ideology alive.
Or, if you’re more interested in praxis, perhaps advocating for top down harsh regulation on the meat industry or pet industry. Never vote for right wing parties, for example.
Going vegan isn’t necessarily going to work for you; I just finished off a chorizo sausage myself. That doesn’t mean that we can’t advocate for and plan for a world which relies less on wholesale slaughter.
Plenty of people already do that. You're acting like no one does anything though and that if they just did this one thing all of our problems would be solved.
I can get angry at both. PETA is a shit organization run by shit people that do more to harm animal rights than support them.
They still slandered Steve Irwin on the anniversary of his death. Also claimed that shearing sheep is abusive, even going as far as to use Wooloo to state it.
Shearing sheep itself is not abusive. We have bred modern sheep to produce so much wool that it's necessary to shear them.
But with the commodification of animals comes abuse. Sheep Shearers are paid by weight, which incentivizes the fastest possible shearing. Sheep are often beaten, stomped on, and mutilated at these farms.
So yes, wool production is abusive, and that isn't even considering what happens after the sheep stop producing wool quick enough. They get sent to slaughterhouses, which again, are abusive.
Tried to find some impartial sources. Found this article and another on snopes.
Massive corporations when pride moth is over:
I would like to know where to find this 'pride moth'
1) gay rights still haven’t been federally guaranteed. We’re still not a legally protected class unlike race, biological sex, and religious views.
2) I even live in a very progressive part of the USA and “completely socially safe” is a stretch were I am too.
I think he means socially safe for the company
I fucking love this copypasta.
If it's not mentioning anything about LGBT/ human rights issues, or doing it in order to push product/ "virtue signal", I would actually prefer a (small) amount of "virtue signalling", at least to raise awareness, instead of nothing
Of course, this is more a general point, and would be better suited for Asian companies talking about LGBT people.
Small, incremental, even if it has hollow intentions, change is better than stagnation in regards to social issues
That one's getting saved
It's just a copypasta dude
Yo why does everyone hate on these corporations for supporting gay pride. What do you expect them to do outside of June, people would call it weird if they kept their logo like it outside of June but it’s an asshole thing to do when they do it in June.
Chill this is just a copypasta.
cause they haven’t done shit for us and probably never will. they just do it to seem “good and cool” for marketing, it stems from the whole wendy’s relatable brand twitter phenomenon. “hi you’re gay? please buy our stuff while we lobby congress against climate chante regulations and have our stuff made in sweatshops” it’s just virtue signaling and it seems disingenuous when they do things that harm our society. sone even do things that harm lgbt directly, like youtube demonetizing LGBT creators and looking the other way on literal cyberbullying as long as they could to not cause drama.
I don't like peta but I agree with most of their messages
I agree with they message but they are so fucked up at how they try to achieve it
sues a video game company
So... They didn't sue a video game company..
PETA has problems but half of the ones you see on reddit are bs lol
Yeah okay that's right I guess...
Nintendo is a video game company?
They weren’t suing Nintendo. Just sending hate mail.
i dont see anything about suing
I don't exactly remember if there has ever been an actual lawsuit or the thread to do one. Maybe it was just hate idk
collects dogs from the streets just to kill them
What even PETA
I think that pet killing squad from Chernobyl was the predecessor to PETA
dont worry, the story is bullshit
just check snopes
huffpost is a rag and is full of misinformation
once again, check snopes, the full police report is there
That's actually not as true as some people believe.
You say some, it's basically everybody. It feels wack to see this ONE thread going against basically what everybody has to say on PETA. I'm not saying these claims that they do the polar opposite of murder animals are false, it's just odd. You'll understand if you know what cognitive dissonance is.
The true story is one guy once collected a dog that he shouldn't have, and immediately got fired for it by PETA. I don't see an issue with that, individuals can be asshole/make mistakes and PETA reacted properly.
Yeah but that + all delusional stuff PETA is doing..
That organization is a joke.
And btw: they colled animals from the streets, out them in (way too small) shelters and after some weeks some get killed, because they don't have enough space.. we got one of our dogs from one of those shelters..
Euthanizing animals when shelters can't take them in anymore is a sad necessity. The alternative is to let them starve and spread diseases in the street.
You have to blame breeding companies and irresponsible owners for this, not shelters.
You should look at the website petakillsanimals.com.
It's gives proof that out of the 47,316 intact dogs and cats Peta took in between 1998 and 2018, they killed 39,961.
A state inspector compared it to a euthanasia clinic rather than a shelter.
PETAKillsAnimals.com is run by the disingenuously named Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF). A front group that's funded by KFC, Outback Steakhouse, Philip Morris, cattle ranchers... to lobby for fast food, meat, and tobacco industries. Maybe you should get your information from more neutral sources.
And once again, if no shelter can keep the animals, they have to be euthanized (and I am actually surprised by how low your numbers are).
That was only for the intact dogs and cats, not ones that came in already spayed and neutered, and it was for only one location.
And I didn't know that, thank you! I'll remember to check stuff more thoroughly in the future.
If they sterilize animals and leave them back on the streets, they'll take the place of others. And if that's done in masses, there'll be only one generation of street dogs/cats, which will die out after a while.
That's what scientists try with mosquitoes. They changed their DNA, so they don't lay eggs anymore. That means those sterilized mosquitoes take the place of normals ones and will reduce the next generation in numbers.
Mosquitoes and animals on the streets are two very different prospects. I think any org that routinely just releases dogs and cats onto the street would run into some trouble with the law the second someone gets attacked by a stray dog or cat on the street.
No, it's not different.
There are people who do it. On TV was a Animal rights activists who did that in Spain with his people.
They caught them, sterilized and released them.
Sterilizing doesn't solve the starvation/disease spreading issues. Letting the animals suffer and being a public safety issue is even less cool than giving them a peaceful death imo.
And wild cats/dogs are not the only source of animals in our streets, there are a lot of abandoned animals.
Weird choice of words ig, I've corrected it
Did they win?
I'm not even sure whether there was an actual lawsuit or threatening to sue or just hate
Lmao they sued for a tanooki suit when Mario repeatedly murders cats in 3D World
Was there an actual lawsuit?
Do all of you get this angry when Disney sues daycares?
I didn't even know that...
Disney is low-key aggressive as fuck with their IP.
Just google “Disney sues” and you’ll see.
It’s just odd that Reddit is so obsessed with supporting the progressive cause, but the front page is smeared with anti-vegan circlejerking.
Meanwhile redditors suck uber-capitalist Disney dick with a big Marvel buttplug to boot.
I think that it is pretty normal for a company to protect their IP, I mean why would you allow someone to use it without knowing what they actually do with it
Also, PETA seems not very vegan friendly
Like when three daycares got sued for having Mickey painted on the wall?
We know this isn’t about PETA. Veganism is so much bigger than peta, but that’s all Reddit wants to talk about.
Nah maybe they could have warned them, but why would you paint a copyrighted character on your wall oof
I don't remember seeing serious vegan bashing
What about how they achieve it tho.
They have multiple shitty activities like insulting Steven Erwin & large amounts of euthanized animals
If fucking hate PETA with every fiber in my body, but at the same time, I'm super Vegan.
I honestly feel like PETA gives Vegans a bad rep, but that may just be me.
Why do you hate them?
Oh boy, where do I start.
From what I've heard, they pretty much euthanize almost all of the animals they "take in". This includes cats and dogs and whatnot. They pretty much kill more animals then save them, I'm sure.
The way they put out their message is really screwed up, imo, with how pushy and even sometimes annoying their posts on social media are or whatever else. This goes along with what I said, with giving Vegans a bad rep. Most other vegans I've met in person are super cool guys, really.
They euthanize those animals because “no-kill” shelters won’t, but they need to get rid of animals that aren’t being adopted. It’s like getting mad at an executioner for killing someone. Is the prospect messed up? Sure. But their intent isn’t to kill just for the hell of it, it’s to be humane.
Yeah, get mad at the obscene amount of puppy mills
Exactly. And you can tell the outrage has pretty much nothing to do with the euthanization because when you suggest that people stop breeding dogs and creating this problem in the first place you are suddenly just as bad and extreme as peta. The truth is that people want to defend this disgusting mentality our society has towards animals and they will try anything but actually addressing the merits of the mentality to defend it.
Yes, and they take in sick animals which no other shelter would take so there’s a higher euthanization rate because of that too
" After reviewing two months worth of records, Kovich found that 245 of the 290 animals–84 percent–that PETA took into custody were killed within 24 hours. Only 17 were reported as adopted or in foster homes. Kovich noted that PETA’s shelter did not meet PETA’s own published guidelines for operating a humane animal shelter. "
They weren't killed because they weren't adopted. They were killed because PETA didn't want to deal with them.
No, they take in animals from other shelters in order to humanely euthanize them. That’s what I was saying.
Many of the shelters were unaware that PETA planned to euthanize them.
"Evidence presented during the trial showed that PETA employees killed animals they considered 'adorable' and 'perfect.' Likewise, witnesses at the trial testified that PETA told them they 'shouldn’t have a problem at all finding homes' for dogs left in their care. Other North Carolina shelter personnel testified that they were under the impression PETA would find homes for the animals they handed over to PETA. These impressions were incorrect. PETA picked up dogs and cats from animal shelters in North Carolina and killed them before they even left the state."
However, it is fair to admit that there was some confusion, and in the end PETA was considered not guilty. But the fact that there's so much confusion around homeless beings' fucking lives is fishy at best.
"Local shelter officials said they were unaware that PETA planned to euthanize most of the animals it picked up, but a PETA official testified that she told county officials of the policy."
this is really strange. are you trying to point out that local shelter officials are stupid?
sorry to break the news to you, but some animals have to be euthanized. also, santa isn’t real
I was trying to point out that some officials may have been under the impression that PETA was looking to be a real shelter.
Yes, "some animals" have to be killed while we still have this overpopulation epidemic. Maybe animals that are too ill, or too frail, or have not been adopted. But these animals were healthy, many of them young, and they were already in a shelter before PETA took them, presumeably without being clear about what they planned to do (though that part is very strange).
Conclusion: Neuter everyone.
84% of animals tho? I'm not sure if shelters in the US are facing different circumstances than the ones in Europe, but at least in Austria and Germany it is illegal to euthanize healthy animals. Apparently it is not an absolute necessity to kill any sheltered animals at all.
I would think twice about supporting such an organization...
PETA didn't want to couldn't deal with them.
PETA didn't want to couldn't deal with them.
PETA claims to be an animal rights organization, which means using utilitarian means to get rid of animals is morally unjustified.
So even if it's the more convienient way to help "the greater good" of animals, it is still inconsistent with the pillars of animal rights.
This is a common problem with animal rights, it's extremely difficult to manage animals in a way that's ethical consistent.
Huh? It’s a completely unfounded claim that:
animal rights... means using utilitarian means to get rid of animals is morally unjustified.
animal rights... means using utilitarian means to get rid of animals is morally unjustified.
You’ve actually just made this up
How would you describe animal rights as a philosophy?
If I had to sum it into a sentence then:
The unnecessary suffering of sentient life is inherently immoral
I would say that's the definition of veganism, not animal rights.
Any rights based system means putting a preference toward the individual, not the collective.
I should have been more precise, that doesn't mean that you can NEVER use utilitarian means, but it does mean that the existence of the individual is paramount in moral decision making.
We would never accept a premature euthanasia program for humans, we would use other methods of population control, that emphasize individual freedom. Of course the difference between Humans and animals is that humans can abide by a social contract and animals cannot, which is both a logistical nightmare and an ethically relevant distinction, but if you value existence in its own right, then it seems favorable to apply some sort of rights based system, whatever that might look like.
You might want to check your sources. One big "source" of PETA hate is actually just propaganda: https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/PETA_Kills_Animals
It'd be suprising if the meat industry wouldn't be paying for a lot of progaganda.
From what I've heard, t
f fucking hate PETA with every fiber in my body,
From what I've heard, t
f fucking hate PETA with every fiber in my body,
If you have to defend a very strong opinion with "from what I've heard", you should hold off the judgement until you know more.
But reddit said PETA BAD
I said "from what I heard" because it's true. I feel like its probably very unlikely that I could be , for instance, right there when an animal gets euthanized by PETA. We all base off our opinions off of what we've heard. It's almost impossible to be RIGHT THERE to see something happen that you have an opinion of. I also say this because, it's what I've heard, it doesn't mean its 100% true. Media could be lying, for all I know. I don't know any of this to be 100% factual. So once again, I'm saying "from what I heard" to be truthful.
There's "hearing stuff" (some random telling about it, an unsourced reddit comment, reading a headline but not the article...), and then there's actually doing some research about the issue. Having strong opinions like hating a corporation should require doing the latter, even if you never personally see a PETA guy euthanizing an animal.
I'm inviting you to read up more about PETA issues, because most of what you can read about PETA is wrong or misleading (somebody has to euthanize those diseased, starving, abandoned animals... they're taking millions of animals a year in their shelters, but there would be millions more to take care of and the reality is nobody can do it)
From what I've heard, they pretty much euthanize almost all of the animals they "take in". This includes cats and dogs and whatnot. They pretty much kill more animals then save them, I'm sure.
do you not go to hospitals because people die there? try and maybe do a little research first before talking, and not reddit research.
Hospitals don’t kill their patients because they are full
Nice username lol
I don’t know, they’re pretty good at executing all those shelter animals...
Exactly how I feel. I just couldn’t word it properly.
Same, their messages are mostly agreeable but the things they do sometimes and some of the things they say are just shit.
PETA talked shit about Steve Irwin. Fuck PETA.
I guarantee you they're a shill company designed to make animal rights seem absurd. Like how the gay frogs conspiracy theory was designed to cover up mass extinction of amphibian species due to both illegal and legal factory waste dumping.
tremble before the E L M O
I read this with a stutter
ROFLMFAO! 2003 WAS SO FUNNY! LOLOLOLOL!!!
Lmao the planet is dying and animal agriculture plays a huge part in this but BACON AMIRITE GUYS
Just because it’s old doesn’t mean it isn’t true
Fuck PETA has a meaning 🤔
No I hate because they’re a bunch of assholes.
Love how this is downvoted. The truth hurts. “PETA bad” gets thousands of upvotes in subreddits with a majority of younger/teenage users. Do NOT trust this misinformation. Big meat has spent millions brainwashing you and it doesn’t want to lose that from you thinking about where your food comes from. Think for yourselves on these issues. There’s a reason you’ve heard so much “bacon!” It’s the cheapest piece of meat, and they have millions of pounds dead pig to sell to you.
Has anyone looked into whether they could reduce their euthanasia rates, without just screeching "AH-HA, HYPOCRITES EXPOSED, THEY MURDER ALL ADORABLE PUPPERS ON SIGHT, CASE CLOSED"?
I'd really like some reasonable look into the issue, that is neither cynical gotcha attacks from the Berman side nor just the obvious and unverified "well they only kill when they don't have any other choice". I feel like I'm super biased in favor of PETA and I want to correct that. To me the PETA hate on Reddit has always looked like a bunch of people who were viscerally annoyed by the idea of "self-righteous animal defenders who criticize behaviours that seem normal to me" and were deeply relieved to stumble upon a reason, ANY reason to feel morally superior and dismiss their accusations. If I'm right they would have hated even an hypothetical 100% morally flawless organization just for the crime of DARING to question stuff that feels "normal" to them.
PETA does bad shit, did u hear about the time they took a 9 year old girls chihuahua and put it down?
I’ll give you the dog one, but counter this
All of these are completely meaningless. Still doesn't change anything about animal agriculture either?
1) this was never about animal agriculture, it was about how shit PETA is
2) I agree that the animal agriculture business can be cruel sometimes, and it should be more ethical, but me and millions of other people aren’t just gonna stop buying animal and dairy products, these animals are bred to be killed, and it could be done in a more humane way, but they would die either way
1) Fair enough.
2) they are raised to be killed so that makes it okay? People were captured and raised to be slaves? They are being forcefully bred into existence, in a world without human interference these animals wouldn't have been born in the first place. So no, they wouldn't die either way, they aren't there naturally.
This is true, but like I was saying, it’s happening and people will always buy it, enough people will never stop buying it to really change how the animals are being treated
People are changing every day.
Except peta actually does bad shit. Fuck off.
Not nearly as bad as what animal agriculture businesses do. Billions of animals are brought into existence just to be put through hell, yet you save your aggression for PETA. Fuck off and think for yourself.
You do realize that animal agriculture businesses are in the business of using animals for, you know, agriculture? It is what they do, they do it well.
PETA is an organization that promotes treating animals ethically (It's even in their fucking name). They don't do that at all. Your comparison sucks, get off your flawed logic and think for YOUR self.
Ethical treatment of animals is not "well, animals belong free and not in a shelter, and since they can't have that, we have to save (MURDER) them because it isn't ethical to keep them like that..."
People hate PETA because they sound like something great that we can all get behind, but they are none of those things beyond the idea of "animals are cool and shouldn't be treated like shit" ideology. They are like the worst of lying politicians.
Do you not see dairy farms promoting their product with “happy cows” and eggs being sold with pictures of happy chickens et cetera? Animal agriculture is fucked and should be stopped, yet these businesses have made it ILLEGAL to even take pictures of their farms from public property. Google ag gag rules. They don’t want you to know what’s going on. They are supremely more hypocritical than PETA. They do abuse animals for profit “well” in the sense that the nazis conducted the holocaust “well.” And before you jump on me comparing animal agriculture to the holocaust, a literal holocaust survivor did the same when he saw what was going on in the slaughterhouses.
Prove it without sourcing a news website.
This really circles my jerkles
Yeah, it is
Where tf have you guys been? Hiding under a rock
lol so u dont know why
Elmo came with that AK 47
O C E A N G A N G
ngl, I agree, we 100% shouldn't kill anything just because it would look great on us.
Or because it will give us a fleeting pleasant experience
Yeah, there are better ways to get things like feather and wool, like waiting for natural shedding, or cutting the fur as long as you know itll grow back
or just not doing that
What alternatives do we have?
not doing that
Funny how the words "Animals are NOT ours to wear" looks like it's wearing a crap ton of fox heads.
If animals aren’t ment to be worn, why are they made out of fur? /s
I mean, PETA isn’t wrong...
Right, i'm sure your right to eat a steak is more important than literally the life of the planet, animals, and future generations.
Never change, neckbeards. Owning libtards le epic style.
Survival of the fittest
So is it okay to kill kids I guess ? lol
bruh im using this one in the future lmao
You don’t need meat to survive
It’s a joke lmao
Yeah ok, go vegan
I respect your choices and morals, but I enjoy meat.
Have fun with your heart disease and erectile dysfunction, fittest
Dont have either. I'm healthy.
Edit: warning. Triggered vegan in thread
And how does not being a soyboy vegan make me a neckbeard.
Animals dont really ha r moral rights the same way people do
Not saying they do, simply saying they deserve the right not to be killed for no good reason.
The guy who runs the Elmo account went under a huge firestorm against other people. People in a group chat wanted to talk about being friends with the account owner. Elmo then said in that GC that if someone in that GC talked shit about him, he would use his followers to bring that account down. The DMS went public and a bunch of people got his original account taken down.
it looks like op runs the account, if you look theres the stat tracker button, those only appear on tour own tweets
Oh well. For the OP. Sad to see a 10K account to go back to 100 followers
Im do not run the twitter account. The elmo account told us to post this on reddit.
Check my recent post
They might be shit but someone has to stand up for animal rights.
Furries got nae naed
As an animal activist, I can safely say that PETA is one of the most hypocritical and evil organizations on earth.
One of the most evil organisations on earth?.. holy hyperbole, Batman.
Crap he’s on to me
Hope ur vegan then
Why? Because they do what needs to be done? If anything the no-kill shelters that simply send animals to kill shelters when they're out of space are hypocritical.
You want to blame someone for the animals that we have to euthanize (the alternative being letting them starve and spread diseases in the street), blame the breeding companies.
because Reddit told me they were /s
How do people even formulate these views. Is your opinion of them based on the unbelievably biased shit you see that hits front page on Reddit?
I love nature and animals.
I also eat both of them.
you can't love something and fund its rape, enslavement and death
I love my daughter and rape her on a daily basis
While I do hate PETA, I will say this: please don't wear fox furs :-)
Or hunt them, for sport. That's just cruel to be honest. Not even doing anything with the kill at all
Probably going to get buried, but I have a somewhat serious question.
Why don't we have a lot of cheap, genuine leather? We kill so many cows for meat. I've certainly eaten a cow's worth in taco in my life, therefore it would make sense that we could all be wearing leather clothing without requiring extra slaughter.
Instead we go out of our way to use our limited plastics to create fake leather.
Edit: I looked it up. A couple of anti-cruelty websites claim that it's not a byproduct, but that seems simply untrue. More realistically, leather is cheap and we have a lot of it but making it into clothing isn't as cheap. Makes sense, as it isn't as automate-able as weaving processes.
I'd have to imagine it's just not profitable
the skin has to be tanned and processed with some pretty dangerous shit
the environmental damage mass quantities of cows cause is no joke, let's not increase their numbers.
I wasn't saying we should increase the number of cows, just use more of their leather. Although, after seeing your link, maybe we should abandon that too. Plant fibers may just be better in general.
When I was looking things up, the normal value of a cow's skin is about 10% of the whole cow's value. By weight, it's the most valuable part of the cow. Though, a farmer's anecdote was that beef cows usually have lower quality leather due to it being damaged in life. Things like scars from fences, or fights with other cows.
Why does it look like a nether portal
My homie Elmo boutta hit that fat dab and take the L on those animals
Dont rely on Elmo, he lost his mind yesterday by the BOTW sequel
Why is peta supporting the gay frogs now?
well I agree with some of what they say, but I hate them for what they do and how they achieve their goals. besides I wont forgive them for insulting steve….
I agree with what PETA’s saying, even if they have a shit way of executing their philosophy.
Friendly reminder to shills and the uninformed:
Peta recently got in some hot water for some rude tweets about the late Steve Irwin.
Don't be Peta.
Go donate to the wwf, or aspca, or volunteer with your state's parks and wildlife or similar department, or go sign Jim's Fuck SeaWorld change.org petition with only 7 signitures, but above all don't support that scummy nonprofit above. Their policy with animals is pretty much better dead than doing anything with people.
People say it was rude... but was their tweet wrong?
Facts don't care about your feelings
Steven Irwin was a piece of shit.
Do people being dead automatically make them not bad or something
Donate to starving children or something, not fucking peta or some feminism thing
peta is bad but their message is good. animals are just like us and our pets that we love so torturing them just to eat them and wear them is really fucked up. don’t support peta but still go vegan or at least reduce your consumption of animal products
PETA isn’t bad though, it’s all propaganda by the meat industry.
completely agree, i’m honestly indifferent but trying to remind people that they can support animal rights w/o supporting peta
Yeah peta is wrong a lot but the fur industry is sincerely fucked. The animals are fed to make them as fat as it is possible to be to get the most fur and then they're skinned.
I hope P.E.T.A doesn't help the gays the same way they help animals.
Saudi Arabia already does that
Today kids Elmo will teach you that animals are very delicious and good for you and no matter what Peta says were still going to eat them 🍗🍗🍗🍖🍖🍖🥩🥩🥩😋😋😋☺😇😇😇😇
Peta blocked me
The twitter block is the best way to show your enemies that they’re right
Yea I was trying to find out what that means.
I think it means 1.17k but I’m not sure. In French (and most European languages) they use commas instead of points.
Still I feel like there should be an indicator saying it means thousands.
lol elmo don't eat my hamsters or I will kill you.
or any animals.
PETA: "Don't kill animals!"
Also PETA: kills animals
I'm vegetarian and don't wear fur but PETA saying not to, makes me want to purely on principal
Hey just to remind you not to bully,but making fun of your friends decision to go vegetarian or vegan is bullying. Making the decision to change ones diet can be super impactful on their life and is a hard lifestyle to maintain and so as friends you should be encouraging them not nagging on them every step of the way. Im in college now but I was vegan all throughout highschool, and I swear everyday someone would comment on it without me saying a single word about it, I was able to handle it but who knows with other teenagers.
I know. Im not an ass like people who do that
hahaha look at this loser who cares about other beings and the environment
If animals didn’t want to be eaten why were they made out of food
So I asked for this asian girls number and she said sex sex sex free sex tonight so I said sweet and went to go have sex with her, later I was talking with my sister who also has an Asian friend and she told me that the girl meant to say 666 3629
Don't say it, Don't say it
I didn't know elmo was chinese
Elmo parody is fucking awesome
Who even wears fox anymore?
This reminded me of a time when I went to go see a screamo band in concert for the first time. I saw a guy with an Elmo shirt and snickered about it. Later in the evening, the guy wearing the Elmo shirt was the lead singer for the headlining band lol.
Elmo can be brutal when he wants to be.
Great job, Elmo.
PETA bad, Elmo good
Elmo came with that AK47
Given the survival rate of Peta's animals, I'm kinda scared as gay person to see them with a rainbow banner
Isn't the text actually wrapped up in animals
Wlmo simply knows whats good, nothing more or less.
He totally just killed cookie monster and ate him.
Elmo is now godly
Fuck off PETA. You sorry excuse for an organization. We all know what happens behind the scenes, you’re not saving animals you’re killing them. Eat shit and die.
I'd like to see Elmo try and debate someone like Earthling Ed or Joey Carbstrong. Then we'll see if he still stands behind needless death and suffering.
Elmo love genocide
DO NOT TRUST THIS E-BEGGING ACCOUNT!
THIS ELMO ACCOUNT BREAKS THE PARODY CODE AND IS AN E-BEGGING PIECE OF GARBAGE
Peta cannot even make the shape symmetrical
These parody accounts are hilarious!
I wish somebody would make a mock profile for Peta for plants and comment on everything they do.
who is this Elmo guy I keep hearing about
He is a parody account on twitter.His old elmo account was terminated and he is trying to regain his following. The account is run by someguy named jake ryan
He shows up at your door late at night and demands tickles. If you don't supply him with what he has requested you find yourself dead within the week
no that's me
MY EYES!! TWITTER IN LIGHT MODE!!!
I didn't take the screenshot. Elmo told us to post it like this.
Could we just get a better animal rights organisation please. One that doesn’t openly criticise Steve Irwin!!!!
Not Steve Irwin!!!!11!1+
I didn't know they support pride month...
No Elmo put it down
Why is peta now homosexual
We could start a new fur industry based off just petas kills alone.
exposing yourself as elmo or seeing the reply in 52 seconds which is it
I didn't take the screenshot. The old elmo account was deleted and he told us to post this.
Oh god damn it he made a new account? That Elmo guy is fucking unbearable
Yea! fursuits are made of synthetic furs
Furries take notes
This is so jpeged lmao
Yeah man fuck them fursuits but besides that peta is retarded
Not to hate or anything but why tf did peta change their pfp to support pride month? Now they gonna force animals to be lesbian or something?
since they want money
PETA big gay
This is really cursed cuz that means elmo has taste buds coming out of his stomach walls.
PETA can get a narwhal horn up their ass
Cant argue with that
Umm... Are we talking about furries
just came back from watching hentai what’s up
Uploads picture of your own tweet
I have to tell a bunch of people this. I didnt take this screenshot the twitter owner did and told people to post it on reddit.I am not elmo
But definetly ours to eat
Animals aren’t for wearing...
They are for eating.
I saw this but it was in dark mode
Would Peta be against fur made exclusively from roadkill?
PETA pls you kill more animals than you save
Elmo has been doing this for a while now and it’s starting to get scary
Fuck does PETA have to do with pride?
Ngl, peta is kinda gay
Hol up is this a new portal in Minecraft some foxes and pointless shit in the middle?
Isn't plastic made outta dead animals soo
Peta puts healthy animals down anyways so roast away elmo!
He isn’t wrong tho
in all seriousness it's better to eat animals than to use their skins for fashion. Like when you're eating them a least they died to feed you and it was for a good enough reason.
My species is not your freaking prom dress
Sesame Street has gone ragged..
What the fuck are we gonna wear?
If we arent supposed to eat animals why are they made of food
I read it in Elmo's voice
Lmaao u just stole this post
Elmo told us to post this. Boi. I just expected 500 upvotes for a follow. Not 30k.
I agree, we should wear humans instead.
if PETA hunts down Elmo, that would be the first time i actually respected PETA for something, ELMO IS EVIL
I believe Peta agrees with that, they kill animals for fun.
Everyone follow this mans right now
I like how you capitalised job but not Elmo
damn that's dark
If I want to wear my cat around my neck like a scarf I will.
Peta bad, animal slaves good
for a moment i thought i was on r/comedyheaven
Fuck I must have posted in the wrong subreddit. My bad.
Rip this post.
Yumm yumm in Elmo's tumm tumm.
I don't think this was tweeted 100s of years ago
what mean? cave boy no know tweet.
We have no need to wear fur in modern times
There’s not really any good alternatives.
Nae nae on P.E.T.A., Elmo
But apparently they are ours to euthanize
Animals are yummy inside my tummy
I still agree that being vegan and wearing non-animal clothing is better than eating animal products and wearing animal clothing. I imagine that the entire world will be vegan in the future. Really doesn't make sense to me why people say "good job elmo".
People just jump on the anti-PETA bandwagon posthaste. I still hate PETA because they are responsible for puppy murder, but they're right about the whole veganism thing. Becoming vegan is self-improvement. You can survive off veganism.
Time for downvote galore
The Elmo account is known for being extremely narcissistic when dming fellow parody accounts
my ocd going crazy rn
r e a ll y?
foxes middle right side
If we go by Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection, PETA should have been shunned or worse by now. This ain't a "uwu animals are people too" world. This is a fight for survival and animals are at the bottom of the chain.
Lol what fight? Go hunt the animals yourself at least if you want to say that
We don't need to. Do you want to know why?
Because we live in a society.
Y'all don't know what a joke is. It's PETA, everyone makes these jokes when talking about them
I don't get the whole "peta" thing if good didn't want us to eat animals or wear them then why do I look so good in leather whilst eating a steak?
Hate to be the one to say it but...
Well boys, we did it, veganism is no more
hurr durr charity bad
Yea, peta is bad
I don't think most people in 1st world countries wear fox pelts anymore, unless it's a family heirloom, so this tweet is complaining about a problem that doesn't exist.
Leather is ubiquitous.
There’s a lot more fake leather nowadays
Bro rich people wear furs all the time
U a beast mode Elmo
Here we see the human in his natural habitat, he stalks Aisle 7 hungry looking for food. He stalks his prey, the 227g £3.91 Prime Grass-fed Beef Sirloin Steak. He proceeds to charge by visciously seizing the container and stuffing it on his cart
Damnit we can't sheer sheep anymore gotta let them overgrow their hair.
Better to wear leather that will last a life time of use than plastic that will last an eon after it goes in the trash.
yes the two materials for clothes, fur and plastic
