PETA Asking People to Stop Using 'Anti-Animal Language'

PETA Gets Dogged For Tweet Demanding End To 'Anti-Animal Language'

PETA asks people to stop using ‘anti-animal language,’ including common phrases

Instead of "bring home the bacon", try "bring home the bagels".

The animal-rights group is pushing for "animal-friendly idioms" and provided a list of suggestions people can use to avoid offending vegans, PETA said.

PETA's Twitter call for an end to "anti-animal" language is drawing a combination of ridicule and condemnation. "Those phrases should be replaced with "be the test tube", feed a fed horse" and "take the flower by the thorns", the organization says.

"Just as it became unacceptable to use racist, homophobic language, phrases that trivialize cruelty to animals will vanish as more people begin to appreciate animals for who they are", the group said. "Here's how to remove "speciesism" from your daily conversations". Twitter users quickly responded with their own tweets.

PETA has been heavily criticised for comparing "speciesism" to racism, homophobia and ableism.

The tweets have received a huge amount of backlash, with more than 20,000 people replying, mostly criticising the organisation.

DNA 'fingerprint' brings prospect of fast test for cancer
The researchers found the signature in multiple types of breast cancer as well as in prostate and colorectal cancer, and lymphoma. Current detection of cancer requires a tissue biopsy - a surgical procedure to collect tissue from the patient's tumour.

Piggybacking on political correctness in an era where "social justice warriors" are widely mocked for taking their crusade into the realm of the ridiculous was probably not the best marketing decision - even PETA supporters cringed. French fries to fry?

PETA's tweet recommended using substitute language when referencing animals.

"That should make racists think twice", PETA wrote on its website.
