Fucking fuckheads
As I am currently in a monumentally foul mood, all I can say to PETA's latest fat-hating stunt is: Please fuck off. When you are done fucking off, head over to Kate Harding's blog for some intelligence. That is, if intelligence isn't one of the many things that's below you.

Following is the Press Release of Fuckedness that has made me want to rip my teeth out and throw them at my computer:


PETA Offers to Help Massachusetts Schools Crack Down on Childhood Obesity


For Immediate Release:
April 15, 2009

Lindsay Rajt 757-622-7382

Springfield, Mass. - After learning that that the Massachusetts Department of Public Health is reportedly planning to start sending "fat report cards" to students' parents, PETA has sent a letter to school district superintendent Dr. Alan Ingram offering to help students trim down by educating them about healthy and humane vegetarian diets.

PETA points out that meat-eaters are nine times more likely to be obese and suffer from the debilitating and life-threatening consequences of obesity than vegetarians are. Researchers have found that children as young as 3 can already begin to show signs of coronary heart disease (hardening of the arteries). A vegan diet has been shown to reverse the symptoms of heart disease.

"Kids' addiction to hot dogs and chicken nuggets may be making them fat and increasing their risk for deadly diseases," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Teaching kids about the benefits of vegetarian foods like PB&J and orange juice is as important as teaching them their ABCs."


Oh yeah, and please note that Lindsay Rajt wants you to contact her at 757-622-7382. She should be glad I don't have an unlimited calling plan. That is, unless she likes to have people scream profanities at her.

    "Fat report cards" would not lead people to veganism--it would lead them to eating disorders! You are justified in your anger--this is fucking ridiculous.
