Taking a swipe at Jessica Simpson's recent t-shirt reading "Real Girls Eat Meat", PETA spokesman Alistair Currie said:
"Jessica Simpson might have a right to wear what she wants, but she doesn't have a right to eat what she wants – eating meat is about suffering and death. Some people feel like they are standing up against a tide of political correctness when they make a statement like this – what she is really doing is standing up for the status quo."
"Doesn't have a right." Sure.
And the United Nations is getting in on the game too:
A recent pronouncement from the head of the UN climate change agency that the best thing people can do to halt global warming is to turn vegetarian has taken the debate a step further.Good Lord, they're bringing global warming in too. Run for the hills!
In conclusion, and for your listening enjoyment, a Futurama audio clip: "You're vegetarians, who cares what you do?" (Includes the classic line, "... we taught a lion to eat tofu...")
