The fanatics at PETA continue to marginalize themselves with ever more ridiculous demands. Sweetness & Light brings to our attention the latest nuttiness:
RADICAL international animal rights group PETA has launched its most bizarre campaign yet, demanding fish be renamed "sea kittens".
PETA - People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals - believes calling fish sea kittens will make sea food less appealing.
It wants to change the image of fish as slimy and slithery creatures by claiming they are similar to cuter, more popular animals. "Would people think twice about ordering fish sticks if they were called sea kitten sticks?" PETA asked on its website.
As S&L notes, kittens will happily devour any fish they can get their paws on.
The contempt toward humans PETA embraces in its position that animals are our equals (except that animals get to be carnivores) is becoming clearer by the day.
