PETA urges people to stop using ‘anti-animal language’

  • Hold your horses PETA has a whole list of phrases you should stop saying because you’re being ‘anti-animal

PETA is asking people to stop using common phrases like "bring home the bacon", claiming that it is anti-animal language that trivializes cruelty to animals.

PETA's Emily Rice told The West Australian the new suggestions would remove "speciesism" from conversations.

PETA doubled down on their message by adding one of their alternative phrases, "bring home the bagels" to their Twitter bio.

Instead of saying "bring home the bacon", the organization suggests using the phrase "bring home the bagels".

The internet laughed, and objected. Twitter users quickly responded with their own tweets. "This tweet of yours, equating "speciesism" with racism, homophobia and ableism is deeply disturbing".

George HW Bush's Service Dog Sully Pictured By Coffin
Bush received the two-year-old Labrador in June from America's VetDogs charity. "And the contrast between George H.W. The picture was posted on Twitter by Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath, along with the caption: "Mission complete".

And journalist Brooke Rogers said: "Just a reminder that PETA kills thousands of adoptable animals every year, has a crazy-high euthanasia rate (more than 80 per cent some years) yet still has the gall to churn out this laughable nonsense". The Root called it the "whitest tweet ever."

Piggybacking on political correctness in an era where "social justice warriors" are widely mocked for taking their crusade into the realm of the ridiculous was probably not the best marketing decision - even PETA supporters cringed.

PETA's tweet recommended using substitute language when referencing animals.

In others words, the human species versus everyone else.
