Poor PETA, having to rely on distortions to get their way

September 5, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

It’s just so hard! Do you have any idea how difficult it is to remain honest in arguing for a bizarre and twisted worldview?

Difficult enough for PETA to resort to smearing a biologist studying homosexual behavior in sheep.

PETA is nothing if not good at lurid imagery:

You heard right—OHSU experimenter Charles Roselli is spending millions of taxpayer dollars to kill homosexual rams and cut open their brains in an attempt to find the hormone behind homosexual tendencies so that these tendencies can be changed.

To put it simply, these experimenters believe that homosexuality is a defect that needs to be fixed, and they’re cutting open and killing gay sheep to do it. Roselli has made it very clear that he intends to use the findings of his experiments to “cure” humans next.

Right next to that is a picture of some very cute lambs. You can just imagine the mental image running through the average PETA member’s head: a drooling, psychopathic homophobe driving a knife into the forhead of a cute little lamb while screaming about eliminating the gays from the world.

Perhaps that’s just my respect for the average PETA member showing, but anyway.

The people at PETA are lacking in the area of reading comprehension, as demonstrated by the first link above.

Also, I have to just say, I’m not exactly appalled at the idea of “curing” gay people. Seems like an overly broad thing to oppose. I’m quite happy to let anyone develop and sell almost any kind of safe pharmaceutical. I’m also quite happy to allowing anyone to live according to their sexual orientation or try to live according to what they want their sexual orientation to be. If someone finds a way to change sexual orientations…I don’t really care. Of course, if that cure were to be forced upon anyone it would be monstrous. You could also see pressure for homosexuals to take the “cure” to placate uneasiness about gay people in our society, which would also be a disagreeable consequence.

In any case, I don’t think that’ll ever happen, but it’d certainly be a conundrum if it did.
