more PC bullshit



People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is now encouraging the public to stop using popular idioms because they are considered "anti-animal language."The organization said people should take the phrases that involve animals and make them more animal-friendly."Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it. Here's how to remove speciesism from your daily conversations," PETA wrote in a tweet.

Some of its suggestions included "bring some the bagels" rather than bring home the bacon and "take the flower by the thorns" over take the bull by the horns.After the tweet posted, Twitter users didn't hesitate to jump on the thread to comment their thoughts:
Irresponsible language to be encouraging flower picking, thorned or otherwise, in the midst of bee crisis. Language matters!

"bringing HOME the bagels"?
could you be more insensitive to the plight of the homeless not to mention those with non celiac gluten intolerance.

Last time I checked, most people don’t eat cats. And if your cat is talking to you, you should schedule a meeting with a therapist...

And one suggestion is making a few people raise an eyebrow.PETA said people should use the phrase "feed two birds with one scone," even though bread products can be harmful to birds.One user took it a step further saying birds probably wouldn't want to eat their own eggs.
You advocate using scones? 2 cups cake flour, more as needed
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
1 egg
½ to ¾ cup heavy cream ——- do you think that birds really want to eat their own eggs? GROSS!!

However, some Twitter users suggested their own animal-positive phrases.

Despite the backlash, PETA isn't giving in."Just as it became unacceptable to use racist, homophobic, or ableist language, phrases that trivialize cruelty to animals will vanish as more people begin to appreciate animals for who they are and start 'bringing home the bagels' instead of the bacon," PETA said in another tweet.

I'm 99% sure they were trolling for attention with this.

They're basically a troll organization at this point.  They say ridiculous things like you shouldn't swat a fly, but they kill dogs and cats en masse every year.  As an animal lover, I support the ASPCA, North Shore Animal League and most importantly my local shelter where I adopted my dog.  I'd never give these nutjobs a dime.

So I can't tell my girlfriend I want to "eat her pussy" because it might offend our cat.
Geez! I need a drink. Sorry to all the alkies.

Bring home the bagels? Wouldn't that be anti-semitic?

Yes. Yes it is. Also insensitive toward celiacs.

It's discriminatory against something like oh say date squares, no? Bagels being round. Like shapism or something.

Date Squares is also discriminatory against Incel members, undesirables, and guys/girls who don't put out within 3 dates.

You never want to put all your tits into one basket.
A vibrator in hand is worth two in her bush.
Get back on the whores.
Stop beating a dead whores.

So I can't say "suck my cock", or "ride my hog", but can I offer to give her my "big thick pecker"? Or would I be offending a certain species of bird. Would "pecka" suffice?

I have been sober for 32 years and I need a drink after reading some of this drivel. I am not offended.  ;)

This is enough to turn any of us into your lawnmower-shooting friend from your profile pic.
