And yet you failed to name a single human being who's been harmed by their actions.
Probably because there aren't any. :D

I get off when people make up fantasies about others who they've never met....

I think this is most untrue having grown up on milk but now veg and I wish peta would get their facts straight. They do a damn good job for the animals though.

just for you i found a name

Brian Cass was attacked by men in pickaxes during the 'Stop Huntingdon Cruelty' campaign, he nearly died

be honest, we are talking about firebombers, its a miracle that nobody has been murdered yet (to the extent of my knowledge)

So,
in contrast to the torture and slaughter of MILLIONS,
you find a single name, whose attacks can't even be affiliated with the ALF?
Nice.


Also, for the record, I'm not sure what data PETA is referencing, but if it was an empirical study, the conclusion would go something like this:

The prevalence of Autism-spectrum disorders among those who consume dairy is higher than among those who do not.

"I don't drink milk, yet still have Aspergers" and "So and so drinks milk, and doesn't"

are ANECDOTES, not refutations of statistical occurrences involving large groups of people.

And confusing correlation and conclusion to make it seem like dairy products cause autism is a manipulation of statistics. PETA has a good cause, it's the way that they go about it that makes most animal rights people hate them.

I can certainly agree, there.
