OK. There are a lot of groups out there fighting the good fight to raise awareness on a multitude of issues. For example, there’s PETA or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. As a meat lover, I obviously don’t agree with their entire agenda. But, I respect their dedication to the cause.
That is, until now.
Clubbing baby seals is wrong. Testing cosmetics on pigs is wrong. Puppy mills are wrong. I get it.
Swatting a fly?
Come on people! Let’s pick our battles!
I’m not saying that we should kill all insects. Most are vital for pollination and recycling of biological materials. Heck, some people even eat them. Shudder.
But, we’re talking about flies here.
You’re not going to get much public support. After all, flies are annoying, ugly, dirty, disease-ridden, icky things. My vegetarian friends have no qualms killing the f**kers. As far as I’m concerned, we’re allowed to be cruel to them. Yes, I said it.
It almost seems that PETA would do anything to keep themselves in the news and, thus, bring attention to their cause. I mean, we are talking about an organization that wrote a letter to Ben and Jerry’s, asking them to put human breast milk in their products instead of cow’s milk.
But, I suppose we need ignorance in order to recognize intelligence.
PETA is cuckoo. Yes, I said it.
I kid, I kid.
