PETA Actually Asks People To Stop Using 'Anti-Animal Language' And The Internet Trolls Them Mercilessly

Danny Cox

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.

As soon as that tweet was made, there were countless people on Twitter who began slapping back at the organization. Many of them began trolling the new phrases and poking fun at them while coming up with sayings of their own.

Some were even offended that PETA had the audacity to compare their work with the struggles of many people in the human race.

"To the haters: with so much negativity in the world, why not lighten up and use language in a way that encourages being kind to animals?

"To everyone else: add your own anti-speciesist phrases below! Curiosity thrilled the cat (not killed) Eat snow (not crow)."
