Horrifying Tumblr Thread Reminds Us Why PETA Is The Worst

PETA has almost always been a controversial animal rights organization. On the surface, their mission is completely agreeable. Is anyone against the ethical treatment of animals? The truth is that when you dig deeper, as this Tumblr thread reveals, PETA's practices are the complete opposite of moral or ethical. This is a very, very sobering reminder that one should always look into an organization's methods before supporting them. 

If you're looking to support some relatively sane Animal Rights groups, check out The Animal Legal Defense Fund, Nathan Winograd, and Maddie's Fund.

Tumblr thread about how PETA is bad, animal rights, no-kill shelters, pet euthanasia.

PETA is launching a new headquarters in Minecraft on Saturday, as a safe haven where players are not allowed to harm animals… or at least their pixelated counterparts.
So for all you creative sickos out there - that means no compact chicken cookers, barbaric egg farms, cow torture chambers or pig slaughterhouses.
From PETA's website:

Visitors to PETA's custom-made digital island will explore vast expanses of landscapes where the animals of Minecraft roam free. They can also visit extensive vegetable and flower gardens, walk through a fantastic re-creation of PETA's HQ, and discover an abandoned and decaying slaughterhouse.

PETA has gone to the aid of video game animals before, including Pokemon, World of Warcraft seals, the Tanooki suit in Mario Bros., and dogs in Call of Duty.

What a world we live in...

Peta has this to say: "Our parody game is a fun way to tackle a serious issue - that it's wrong for Nintendo to allow McDonald's to lure kids in using its beloved, cute icons, when the reality is that Pokemon have been used to mask would horrify them."
