PETA is no stranger to the video game world, and today it has a brand new flash game for concerned animal lovers to check out. Capitalizing on yesterday's

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
have i ever mentioned how much i despise PETA???????????
Quite frankly, they're one of the big reasons I think we should make lobbying illegal. These nutjobs, with a little money, are actually allowed to influence politics.
I never knew there were so many crazy rich people. Guess I'm naive.
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
This is what happens when you run out of new talking points.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
Pikachu! Electric shock up the anus attack on PETA!
If PETA ever gets meat to be made illegal I will become a suicide bomber. There would be no reason left to live.
So now Peta is going after video games
PETA's gameplan: say something ridiculous, get free publicity from the "outcry," alienate the opponents even further, but manage to get sympathetic people to visit their website just out of curiosity.
PETA wins again.
This should be merged with the "Why Do You Hate Liberalism" thread.
this! Hate em all. they are right there with wesborough church imo. Total waste of oxygen!

So my childhood spent playing pokemon is now entirely invalidated?

I disagree. The age of "any publicity is good publicity" is on the way out. Bad PR is just that, bad. If all you're attempting to do is get people to a website to generate hits and thus ad revenue (another practice that is on the way out, in the traditional sense) then perhaps this method still works. But for those groups with an agenda, not so much.

Well if it makes any difference, back in high school, I was one of those people who visited the site because of PETA's publicity/controversy. I watched a few videos of slaughterhouses and read some materials. I've been a vegetarian for 8 years as a result of this. I guess I can only speak to my own experience.
The problem they have is that, while some of their messages are good (like issues with American slaughterhouse practices), they also have a lot of "wtf?" articles (things like how a small dog, that is no longer prepared to properly defend itself in the wild and will probably be killed and eaten within the week, is better off in said wild than being pampered and loved in someone's home [which is compounded by the irony of the animal death statistics of PETA sanctioned animal shelters]) and have now started a long list of just ridiculous ad campaigns that just really make them look like wackos. So now that message about how you should try to find meat not from farms where they pack them in like sardines is lost between the anti-Pokémon game and the semi-porn campaign they did a couple years ago.
If the majority of someone's messages are ridiculous, I tend to ignore all of them.
Yeah, PETA's message is 95% pure ridiculousness and that's going to drive off all but the craziest people.
It's like those wacky car insurance commercials... Gain their attention with nonsense, draw them in, then get them to buy what you're selling.
if you wish to be a vegetarian then good for you. thats your personal choice but do understand that PETA uses the most obscene videos and pictures they can find. btw we are referring to the group who several years ago wrote a letter to Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory requesting they use human breast milk instead of cow milk. just saying if you wish to be a vegetarian thats great but never rely on one source for information, always do your own research, especially when dealing with a group that is extreme on the issue......btw i love my steak entirely too much ha and my deer meat
Did anyone actually play the game?
It is cracking me up.
No doubt, PETA is an attention whore. The main reason I went vegetarian was because of the slaughterhouse videos. They converted me, but I don't care for their tactics. Btw, I used to love steak... But never tried deer.
