In the world of animal advocacy, PETA remains an often criticized group. They have one of the most recognizable names as far as animal rights groups go, but that's not necessarily for good reason. They are criticized for throwing paint on people wearing fur coats and their over-the-top ads have caught them some seriously negative press. One such ad features a cartoon of a woman in a bikini with the phrases "Save The Whales" and "Lose The Blubber: Go Vegetarian." Apparently, PETA thinks they can body-shame people into vegetarianism.

PETA's latest onslaught on negative attention comes after a tweet from them detailing how people should "remove speciesism" from thier lives. They released a list of common phrases they think everyone should stop staying. The list includes such suggestions as swapping out "bringing home the bacon" for "bringing home the bagels" or "beat a dead horse" for "feed a fed horse" and many more.

In a follow-up tweet, they said, "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 is saying that using phrases with "anti-animal" sentiment is on the same level as using racist or homophobic slurs.

For the most part, responses to the tweet have voiced disagreement. What do you think? Is PETA totally off the deep end by suggesting new animal-friendly phrases or is it something to consider? Let us know in the comments!
