I know, I know. I probably shouldn't touch this with the proverbial ten foot pole. Most people with a lick of sense know that those PETA folks are a few sandwiches short of a picnic, but the latest stunt from those people haters is too good to pass up.
It seems that PETA thinks that fish are in need of a moniker makeover. That's right. According to PETA fish should no longer be called fish. PETA wants people to stop eating fish and thinks a big step in that direction is getting people to sympathize with the scaly creatures. To wit, PETA now proposes that fish be called--drum roll please!--sea kittens. You read that right. Sea kittens. Can you say, brain dead? I knew you could!
PETAniks, let me explain something to you. No matter how much you call fish "sea kittens", they will always remain fish! Scaly, finny, bug-eyed, ugly fish. Got it? No amount of Orwellian newspeak will change that. Fish will NEVER be cute and cuddly and normal people will NEVER feel for them the same affection they feel for truly adorable creatures like kittens. To think that people will be moved to aquatic vegetarianism by this insult to their intelligence just shows how unintelligent you are.
And speaking of vegetarianism, PETAniks please stop with the conversion crusade. We meat eaters see nothing wrong with what we do and are NOT going to stop. And it has nothing to do with us lacking compassion. We carnivores are compassionate human beings. We love our families. We love our friends. We even love animals...in their place. We don't put subhuman--yes, subhuman--beings on a pedestal. And we have a better understanding of the natural order of things than you animal "lovers" do.
We carnivores understand that hunting, predation, living things killing and eating other living things to survive, is just part of how nature works. A human hunter is NOT bringing some egregious evil into what had been a previously peaceful environment. Rather, human hunters are just playing by nature's rules. You PETAniks think that people snagging fish on hooks and yanking them out of the water is cruel. You think that calling fish sea kittens will move people to stop doing that. But even if EVERY fisherman hung up his rod and reel millions of fish would continue to die bloody, painful deaths. They'd just be yanked out of the water by the razor sharp teeth of grizzly bears instead of by hooks, or torn to pieces by seals, otters, or other fish. So by trying to ban fishing/hunting you're not saving fish, or any other animals, at all. The idea that you are is downright comical.
Listen PETA folks. If you don't want to eat meat, then don't. If you don't want to wear fur, then don't. If you think that weird looking swimming things are cute, indulge your delusion. Just leave the rest of us alone. We're busy living in the real world and are getting really tired of your sanctimonious, judgmental BS.
Sea kittens? Get a life!
