Really. It wasn't, ya know, the cheese pizza or the loads of pasta or the million sodas I was drinking every day that made me fat...it was the MEAT!

Wow. That's pretty harsh. I'd love to see all their members and see if any of them are fat.

Exactly!
PETA is PITA seriously! . I think this is really harsh and totally unnecessary. I honestly feel they would have a better following if they used better tactics.

Using KKK imagery, seriously? dumb f****!

I so agree, pintobean. It is truly disgusting.

As a vegan I CANNOT stand PETA and the tactics they use. They're also incredibly inconsistent with the messages they send and they make it hard for the real animal rights activists to come across with any amount of sense. Oh how I wish people would quit giving them money.

This has really annoyed me. They're completely underminding the importance of vegetarianism. Peta are veeeery good at passing judgement on others... as a fat vegetarian who has never eaten meat.. I would just like to say... they're idiots.
