PETA came up with a list of ‘animal friendly idioms’ – our favourite 21 responses
PETA, or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has come up with a list of popular phrases that it’s ever so slightly tweaked to make more animal friendly.
Well, some of them have been tweaked. Some of them you wouldn’t really recognise anymore.
Anyway, people reckon the choices we make when it comes to our food – with more and more people choosing to ditch meat – will also change the way we speak. See what you think.
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. pic.twitter.com/o67EbBA7H4

Well, maybe. This is what these people made of it.

Wouldn’t feeding a fed horse be more detrimental to the animal than beating an already deceased one? https://t.co/KtRQzpxMO9

Stop grilling them over this. No one should have beef with PETA, animal justice is at steak. Can we meat them half way? This is imporkant stuff!

I’m vegetarian. The phrase “feed two birds with one scone” makes me want to force a mole through a shredder. https://t.co/oP3FXwi6fw
