I have questioned PETA and their methods for a while and once I did research into their darker side I realized that they lie and manipulate parents and children. For some reason PETA is very unclear about what they do with your money and seems to have no real goal because they both kill and save animals it is unknown if they agree on every campaign they release, it seems that they are desperate and badly want everyone to do what they say so much that they don"t pay attention to the conscience, they even gave the ELF (eco terrorist group) $1,500 which make me question if they break the law.

I have nothing against animals and would never abuse animals but using sex appeal and claiming that dairy products give you autism is going too far, do you never question what PETA (people for ethical treatment of animals) does with your money. Would you let your children go on PETA's website it's insane have you seen the your mommy kills animals, I am open to a change of opinion but they have gone to far. I'm scared for what they are willing to do for animals I do not get it. There is some stuff that PETA and I can agree on but is There such thing as going too far?

Of course dairy products don't cause autism. And, yes, what PETA does with our money is very unclear. But that's the point. Most of the questionable things PETA does are not public. For example, the donation to ELF was never meant to go public. If you take a look at the PETA homepage (http://www.peta.org...), the most distressing image there (At the time of this writing) is a chinchilla in a cage. So how can PETA be a bad influence on families? By making them go vegan? I'm not vegan myself, but going vegan can lead to better health. So, what exactly is PETA's bad influence on families? Please elaborate.

And, by the way, the "mommy kills animals" thing is a little strange, but please tell us where you got it. I think it's just a parody. Are you sure it's by PETA? In any case, even if stuff like that is real, do you really think parents would let their kids browse the PETA webpage without supervision?

Your mommy was originally a comic in 2003 I can't find the original book but was made into a movie later but seems to spark some doubt in PETA it self according to this post by a PETA staff member(http://www.peta.org...). This post has encouraged me to think of PETA as more than one person. I do not hate PETA and don't want them to shut down and give up all I want is them to think before acting and change their ways to a less desperate and unclear set of morals, you make a good point about them not always being controversial but have you seen their no fur campaigns There are many different organisations that try not to be as controversial as PETA but they seem all to be less successful but a far better influence on families and they should only gain from this so is it really worth it?

(I would have a source for the no fur campaign but its too inappropriate so if you want to find it you will have to search it up your self)

I'm sorry, but I don't see your point. What I'm saying is, the shady things that PETA might or might not be doing are not public, so while PETA might not be a good organization, it can't have an averse affect on any families. And the mildly disturbing anti-fur campaign footage is just that- mildly disturbing. And as I said, no parent is going to let their kid browse the PETA website unsupervised. Thank you for debating me.
