PETA is always looking to protect animals and keep the human race from abusing them or treating them with lack of respect. The group known as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have picketed numerous places around the world in order to get fair treatment for all creatures. Now, they have asked the world to stop using "anti-animal language," but it has only brought about ridicule and internet trolls.
On Tuesday, PETA sent out a tweet asking people to stop using anti-animal language because "words matter." They brought up the fact that as time moves on, social justice evolves and the language ends up evolving with it, but people need to learn how to accept that.
In what PETA called "specieism," they hopped on Twitter to post a chart on their official account which details some of the most commonly used "anti-animal" phrases.
For instance, they want people to stop using phrases such as "kill two birds with one stone" and replace it with something else. They didn't want everyone to have to figure it out, though, and offered up the alternative of "feed two birds with one scone."
It sounds similar, but it really isn't the same kind of thing and doesn't even have the same meaning. Despite that, PETA offered up a number of other suggestions as well.
