PETA calls Jessica Simpson, stupid

Wow...all this stupidity over a tee shirt?

I guess Jessica is being irresponsible to her fans and the world?

Was Jessica ever an advocate for Peta - was she a spokesperson at one time?

I'm not sure let me know....I eat meat....and I wouldn't have a problem tossing this tee on too make a run to the grocery store. I advocate for child rights and child hunger. Launched a campaign against sexual predators and more more more.

According to PETA.org these are the Top 5 Reasons eating meat makes you Stupid

1. Meat increases the risk of breast cancer. A 2007 study of 35,000 women published in the British Journal of Cancer found that women who ate meat were far more likely to develop breast cancer than women who consumed none. Will Jessica's next t-shirt will say, "Real Girls Smoke 3 Packs a Day"?

2. Real girls don't support animal abuse. Compassion is super sexy, if the huge number of hot celebs ditching meat is any indication. Young women turn vegetarian in droves when they learn that the meat industry cuts the sensitive beaks off newborn chicks and cuts off the tails of baby piglets.

3. The meat industry is destroying the Earth. The only thing that's hot about the meat industry is that it's toasting the planet. According to the United Nations, raising animals for food causes more greenhouse-gas emissions than all the cars, trucks, SUVs, planes, and ships in the world combined.

4. Meat will make you fat. All the saturated fat and cholesterol in chicken wings, pork chops, and steak eventually leads to flabby thighs and love handles. I hope the upcoming "Jessica Simpson's Intimates" line comes in plus sizes! Going vegetarian is the best way to get slim and stay that way.

5. Eating meat steals food from starving kids. Jessica's trip to help kids in Africa got a lot of media buzz, but by gnawing on meat, she's essentially stealing food from the mouths of starving children since it takes up to 16 pounds of grain to produce just 1 pound of meat. If more people went vegetarian, we'd free up enough grain to feed every person in the world.

The picture doesn't appear to be working. I am a proud vegan!

(Free veg starter kit for all interested, even if not fully if you want some good free recipes and free stuff)

The picture is working, it just took time to load. "Real Girls Eat Meat" that is stupid! Real girls are compassionate to animals.

Miss Vicki said...

i am compassionate to animal but i also eat meat to live

hey vicki actually i wanted to blog about the connection between animal rights and gay rights, your post inspired me to get on the roll so i have been working on it and should release it at midnight. id love to hear your take on it when its done. i understand what you are saying about eating to live. but you can live and eat the beautiful and varied diet of fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds and beans. there are thousands of options and you can live and live healthfully and compassionately. =)

I tried to live on the exact -- wasn't healthy for my menstrual cycle or some of the other things that go on inside of a woman's makeup (at least not mines).

And this is what I say, when the vegans and the vegetarians who preach the gospel of an animals life --

STOP stepping on those nasty pesky unclean cockroaches, bugs, gnats, flies -- because remember they are Life that Breathes.

I can't wait to read your article especially how you will compare an animal right to a gay right, that should be very interesting.

Sometimes I get where animal rights people are coming from, especially when I have just watched the National Zoo panda cam (pandas are *very* expressive and emotional animals) or played with my cats. PETA snaps me right out of that. I was shocked to find out that a woman heads that group. They are often so sexist and demeaning. Veggie they may be, but the term "cruelty-free" sure doesn't fit them.

I am a vegetarian for health reasons, though I find that the idea of wearing leather makes me wince now. I still love-love my dairy too much to give it up. And I don't give a fat rat's ass what Jessica Simpson's got on her T-shirt.

CrackerLilo said...

Oh, yes, and I shamelessly kill cockroaches, spiders, and especially ants! I'm allergic to ants, so I figure they're trying to kill me first! :-D

Queers United said...

I make sure to take out the ants, and the spiders out. I have a little bug catcher which I use and release them to the outdoors.

Miss Vicki I eat meat and lots of it. I can respect PETA and thank goodness for them.

I remember a test regarding my respect for life & all inhabitants that live and breathe.

I flunked for the very things you mentioned. I smash water bugs, cockroaches gnats and flies...lol.

Miss Vicki said...

Hey Cally and Crackerlilo! Quit killing those water bugs and cockroaches. I have been fooling around with Firefox 3 today.

I like the difference but it isn't downloading as quickly as 2 PLUS it seems to be freezing up on me.

Anybody else using Firefox 3?

Queers United said...

vicki i use firefox 3 and dont seem to have those problems, it also seems faster. so i dunno.

Miss Vicki said...

Queers United, went to reddit & the rest a few people have complained about the same & some different things, but overall everyone is raving.

You know what?? as soon as I downloaded FF3 I was able to use my IE7 once again. I knew FF2 had me blocked behind a firewall or something I couldn't get IE7 to work for nothing.

IE7 needs to go sit down and have a mad brainstorm FireFox is getting their hiney!

I'm getting ready to come and read the terrors of eating meat, and my gay rights vs animal rights i hope you've written the article ---

Here I come...lol

Compassionate to animals? What isn't compassionate about eating meat? Is it the killing, the pain, or the conditions in which they are raised? Killing can't be the issue, you kill plants you eat (see anthropomorphism for why you may have a problem with hurting cute animals and not plants). If you say pain, lions kill wildebeests (causing pain). Is the lion killing a wildebeest not natural or should it, somehow, be stopped?

If it is the conditions, work to fix the conditions in which animals are raised and slaughtered in preparation for human (and other) consumption.

Don't just go say eating meat is, somehow, "bad."

Think for yourself...please.
