    I think the problem there is they are running out of new animal cruelty irl stock videos they can spam all over the place, so now they are attacking "the culture that glorifies animal cruelty" or some such thing. Figuring that by showing us how everything from the music we listen to, the games we play, and the movies we watch condition us to accept that animal cruelty is ok, they can somehow make us more willing to stop cruelty in all its forms.

    Oh PETA, you can do so much good, yet you use your powers for evil.


    1.) Most Pokemon ENJOY the pokeballs. It has been theorized that their is a Pokemon home in there.
    2.) Most Pokmon dont fight. They are pets, roommates, coworkers, and in some cases, religious leaders.
    3.) Many trainers will give them selves up to save their Pokemon
    4.) Pokemon rangers. That is all.

    Please PETA, Play nice and we will stop saying you stand for People Eating Tasty Animals.

    Not precisely, but at least you could respect them for their batspit crazy obsessions with animal care, right up until all the different stories broke about things like them slaughtering more shelter animals than anyone else in the country, or one of their big wigs using medicine that was animal tested, despite the near hysterical levels of insistence that noone should ever use anything that had to do with animal exploitation in any way. Basically, until the hypocrisy started sprouting, you could at least sort of respect their goals and those working on them. Now they are just crazy double standards having oddballs that keep working hard to top their latest level of crazy.

    Im still waiting on my full scale softcore to hardcore porn anti fur posters. We already had near playboy level film shoots of various top ten bodies, lets take the next step peta, you know, for the sake of the animals. Oh dear god, I just came up with two disturbing slogans based on pornographic comments that actually would fit right in with peta styles. Naturally, I wont share them with you, as I have no wish of being banned, but dear lord I almost collapsed a lung laughing.

    Yeah, they should've said "mammals", given what they were protesting. It's pics of women with dotted lines on their bodies where you'd cut a cow or pig to butcher it, usually with words on them labeling the various cuts.

    Well to the best of my knowledge they aren't militant. They do, however, whine and moan whenever anyone other than themselves violates the standards that no society could ever live up to if it is to be survivable, let alone have some semblance of freedom. Which is pretty much why they don't live up to their own standards.

    I doubt i'm alone in thinking they're worse than Team Plasma.

    Given the number of references packed into that five minute game, and the absolute absurdity to which Ash is taken, I personally think they knew exactly what they were doing, and that this was a labor of love more than anything.

    That or someone at PETA hired a few game designers to make pokemon look bad, and the game designers being fans of the franchise turned it back around in a quite amusing way.

    Well thats because their organization hides a dark secret.

    Their not really for pets at all. They find tamed animals an abomination.

    Thus their actual longterm plans are to return the animals into the wild. Thats why they care so little for the animals under their care. They find them monsters anyway.

    To be fair to PETA by all accounts there high rates of animal euthinasia is because they are willing to take in animals that other shelters won't and have a habit of euthanising animals for other shelters and vets they think use the "wrong" method.

    On the other hand, they would get much futher if they would just focus a little. Swinging wildly from "have a rescue dog not from a breeder!" to "keeping pets is evil" just puts people right off them. If they would stick to the kind of stuff the RSPCA do (Animal shelters, re-homeing, rescue, lobbying for basic animal welfare) and keeped away from the militant vegan "meat is murder" they would get allot more done.

    Also, stunts like this make them look just stupid. Ash is a prime example of a good pet owner. How many times dose he get hurt buy his pokimon (Pika shocking him for example) and never once dose he do more than look exasperated? Aslo, I can't belive they focus on the pokiballs when they could have complained about it encoraging dog fighting.

    The bolded part is, indeed correct. The conclusion, however isn't. They don't want to return tamed animals to the wild. From what I read of that, the find that abominable too. They want to kill them, instead, so that the wild won't be spoiled by them. Or something.

    Seeing as portrayed as one of the bad guys just completely destroyed their message even more. He's the character that probably treats pokemon the most as equals in the entire show!

    Oh, aside from all that don't forget how horrible a lot of their campaigns are with regards to women. (And it isn't limited to women.) Hint: You don't help by transferring exploitation to another group. :/

    PETA isn't entirely that off-base with this complaint; it's just mostly off-base. The Pokemon games are essentially a Michael Vick simulator, save for drowning Pokemon that end up losing your bet. Please note the tongue in the cheek.

    But everyone is right here. This is just silly on their part. However, this silliness will not top their Mario 3 tanooki suit fiasco.

    I saw PETA in the thread title and I clicked on it. Like a fatal car crash, I feel bad for looking but it's almost impossible to avert my eyes.*

    Also: Really PETA? Pokemon? I'm pretty sure what you're smoking ain't legal in any country.

    Also: if we didn't keep domesticated cows, wouldn't they all become extinct? I'd really like to know, because as far as I'm aware, in the US at least there simply aren't any wild cows (buffalo and bison don't count). Please won't someone think of the cows!

    I'm not sure if PETA ever did much good for animals - it was the work of others, less insane animal welfare groups. All PETA does for them is hurt their reputation by making people think all animal welfare groups are similar.

    Well... Their direct ancestors, the Aurochs was extinct by the 1600s. Centuries before that in most countries.
    And the European Forest Horse (Tarpan) was extinct by the early part of the 1900s, probably before that, and the other variety of wild horse which I can't spell was briefly extinct in the wild. The direct ancestor of domesticated dogs, wolves, have been driven from most of the world. Most varieties of wild donkeys have been driven extinct or are critically endangered...
