So if you haven’t been hearing a lot about Chick-fil-A lately you probably live under a rock.
It is now known that Chick-fil-A holds a anti-gay stance and donates money to anti-gay organizations. Now I see a bunch of human equality protests starting up at Chick-fil-A’s which is awesome! I’ve seen a few protests joined in by animal rights activists as well too. I know peta2 and other animal rights organizations like Mercy for Animals openly support LGBT rights, there probably isn’t an animal rights organization that doesn’t as that doesn’t make sense. I know I myself would be proud to protest against Chick-fil-A for both human equality and animal rights!
So this is basically just a post to try and help get the ball rolling. As now is a great opportunity to protest against a company that is against both human equality and animal rights.
I’m honestly not all that surprised with them being part of an industry that tortures and murders chickens. So it is only natural they disregard others and lack empathy as a whole. Still though, it’s a terrible action in itself!
Great, guess those liberal gun laws don’t really apply in west virginia, or arizona, or virginia, or colorado or texas. (Btw, NicoleLynne, I’m not going to tag you for this, but it’s called contraceptives, also, gays are not exactly treated with respect in most places. Also, would you eat at Chick-Fil-A if they donated to Right wingers who want to rob women of rights? Oh, wait… I don’t have anything against you, like you said, I get what you’re saying but I just don’t agree with it)
Hey @NicoleLynne, I’ve been to Save A Lot tons of times! It’s actually the store nearest my home, and there’s not many other stores to shop at unless you drive to Walmart which is 20 minutes away and they don’t carry any vegan alternatives to meat, cheese, etc.
Truth be told though, we don’t need all of that stuff – but I will admit it’s pretty tasty! We can make our own vegan cheese and meat alternatives at home using simple ingredients like beans, soy milk, nuts, and so on. A quick Google search produces tons of recipes if you’re interested.
@FAR I understand stand what your saying I just don’t agree with everything you type. “Gays” are treated with respect they have more respect then women & blacks ever did. & it’s not like people who are “gay have it written on their heads “gay” is not a color they can still eat and Chick-Fil-A. Guns really don’t cost that much, you can buy a gun at the flee market for less then 100 and you don’t need nothing to get it. What are they sosposed to do with the kids they already got they can’t throw on the street dont matter they can stop having sex but they still have those kids to feed. Some people don’t work at all and require food stamps and thats not enough to live a vegan life specially when there is limited vegan foods, ever been to Save A Lot? These people skin the deer themselves and use the whole thing and stick it in the freezer.. maybe not everyone does that but there are Americans that need meat to survive. But think what you want idc I am just dishing out what I got to dish.
@AlleyC I really dont pay too much attention to what everyone says most of the time they type out of there butts & repeat stuff over & over …. I almost feel like not posting back it gets old real quick. Anyway there is people who need all the food they can get to survive here in America more then a few I have seen it with my own eyes & thats one reason I think it’s ok to eat meat.
@Brosia PETA reads these threads all the time & one of the admins has already said something, so knock yourself out : )
I keep repeating myself & repeating myself I will continue to do so becasue I will not just go along with what you all say. I feel the way I feel and u all do the same keep it as that then. Be the bigger person and just stop replying and you can go on and think that I don’t know what I am talking about and ur right & i’m wrong yada yada yada.. you know how it goes. lol God Blesssss

Also @NicoleLynne I am not talking about rednecks in West Virginia when I talk about people who need meat to survive. I am talking about a few people in third world countries but mostly Inuits that live out in the middle of the artic away from civilization who make their own tools etc to hunt and kill and use every part of an animal when it is needed.
First people in West Virgina who have a bunch of kids they can’t afford to take care of need to learn about birth control or not have sex in the first place. Secondly they are making money from our government and hopefully some sort of pay checks from a job. They can use that money to go to the local store and buy vegan food. Even if they hunt “for their family” they are wasting a lot of money on guns, ammunition, hunting licenses, other hunting gear, and then most of the time they don’t even use the whole animal. They use a selection of the meat and then sometimes mount the head or a body as trophies but that is generally it. That is not using meat to survive.
@NicoleLynne: You say that “I am for AW & not AR but I know what I am for so it doesn’t matter what you say.” If you are for AR… Give me an example? Because the quote from you earlier, “I don’t see how eating meat is wrong, thats my opinion. I think how animals are treated before they die is wrong but other then that I don’t see eating meat as wrong.”, is more of an AW perspective. Just saying. Sorry if I missed something.
You also completely ignored my post; peta is “Free for all”, not “Free for animals only who cares about human equality and freedom”. We’re not saying that standing up for gays will help animals. We’re saying that it will help gays. They matter too.
Also… You said that they wear fur, like expensive stuff, and eat meat. That’s a drastic generalization. Not all LGBT are AR; not all LGBT wear fur; they are different people, just like any other group of people.
Not everyone is gay for attention, like what you describe. God did not make THEM that way, no; it was their choice to ACT gay. It’s your choice how you ACT, after all… But it’s not your choice who you’re attracted to, or HOW YOU WERE BORN. And if we can’t even have compassion for people so much like us, how can we have compassion for animals?
You don’t understand what I am saying at all. LGBT people are all types of people. You say gays love fur and eat meat. Yes some of them do but there are also plenty that are for animal rights. I am saying that once all humans see all other humans as equal to themselves or at least treat them with respect then animal rights will have a chance at succeeding.
Also I don’t know anyone who is “gay” for attention. It sounds like that’s what you may have done. I’m bisexual and sometimes believe that everyone is born that way. I’ve never been with a girl yet and I currently have a boyfriend (who is also bisexual).
@FAR I know exactly what I stand for when it comes to animals. All I am doing is basically repeating myself & if I have to keep doing that I will. You can say I am for AW & not AR but I know what I am for so it doesn’t matter what you say. & more people can’t afford food then you think I live in WV & so many people here are on welfare with a bunch of kids to feed so I do think its okay to eat meat thats how they are surviving exactly what you said. && Really blacks & whites are = now so tell me how that changed for animals any ?? NONE ! They still test on animals like they did decades ago…. A lot of people treat homo’s right. In a lot of states they can get married but just because they can get married doesn’t mean they will treat animals fair.. because of that have they treated animals a little better since some states made it equal for gays to have the same rights has heter when it comes to marriage… ? NO! Just because AR’s want to stand up for “gays” does not mean that it is going to change for animals. You know (and I am just saying this to say it) I watch tv and when a homo guy is on there he is wearing real fur . Why is it that “gay” guys are so obsessed with real fur and expensive things. When they see a lion all they can think about is having a fur coat. With there “gay” voices and a real fox around the neck they want more… & they say real men wear real fur… & thats a lot of them for some reason “gay” guys act like they are above everyone and look better and dress better and when they talk about animals they talk about them like they are disgusting.. its sad. They are pretty much equal with everyone else thats a big reason why I think it is such a waste a breathe to even try & stand up for them. Idk it just doesn’t make sense to me , this world is too messed up as it is anyway.
Well you said I was homophobic isn’t that a fear… believe me hunny only if you knew me you would know I am deff. not that ! & I said I do not really call myself a christian… why use labels.. I believe in God & asked for his forgivness!! && Gay means happy so I really don’t get why they decided to use gay as samesex? I always wondered that. Oh && I barely got stuff off of here with my points. The shirts aint really my style I got one though that I liked & plus tell me why I ordered the free animals book if I want to just get free stuff . Who orders a book when all they want is free stuff and they don’t really stand for it.. & I got the cookbook so think b4 you type you sound like a donkeys rear end. Like don’t assume because you make an ASS out of U & ME! lol. If i didn’t love God’s beautiful creatures with all my heart & want to help PETA save animals all around the world I wouldn’t take the time to defend myself & I would have never found this website !!
@peacelovepie I never said God made me Heter I said God doesn’t control anyone’s actions. Because if I wanted to be “gay” I could have … I experienced it & now I decided that I can not be with a girl. Also so many girls act like they are “gay” and are all over girls but their not they just want attention.. I see it all the time it so dumb, then they will say there bi but the only time they are with a girl is when they are around a bunch of guys. It’s being fake just some people trying to get attention and get talked about it. It’s pathetic. Its hard to tell whats real & whats not so i try to stay away from it.
@annie-l Okay I don’t think I said anything insulting? & I’m not the only one who is speaking their mind and might have just typed something that could be insulting to someone so that should be @ all.
Also, if you’re only here to get free stuff you don’t believe in by doing things you don’t believe on… I have nothing to say to you except you’re taking advantage of and giving a bad name to both leta and AR activists everywhere. Leave, don’t come back.
@NicoleLynne “We need to focus on real issues not gays because you will see it will get you no where.” Wow. Typing things gives you a chance to delete things more than speaking does. I respect that you have your opinions, but that sentence was rather over the top. Also, you can’t use the bible to justify what you don’t consider to be homophobia. Look at how well the bible treats animals… “So if someone is “gay” God did not make them like that, they make their own choices they choose to want to be with the same sex.” So, let me get this straight. If you are heterosexual, God made you that way, but you are leaving the realm of God if you have free will, and a different sexuality? (also, why can’t you spell focus??? )
I agree with FAR. Everything you say is welfare, not rights. You want bigger cages, ethical exploitation, “humane” meat and fur instead of none. You say we don’t understand, that you’re for the animals. Well, help us to understand, because it should be pretty clear that we’re not getting it. Also, take your homophobic propoganda somewhere else. Peta is free tor ALL, not just free for animals. Sure, animals are our major fight, but when it comes down to it, we are for freedom for all animals AND humans. Can’t deal with that? Leave. You already are a-ok with meat. And after all, how can you expect us to care for animals when we don’t care for each other?
The thing is you don’t know what you stand for when it comes to animals. Everything you say about animals is animal welfare not animal rights. Actual animal rights activist believe that is wrong to consume meat. Some of us agree that it isn’t as bad when it essential for survival which only counts for a few select people on this planet. Anyone who eats meat in your typical western society is not eating it to survive. If you are for animal rights that means using animals in any way for ourselves is wrong.
I have tried to tell you how it essential for humans to treat each other equally if animal rights is ever to succeed but it obviously doesn’t get through your ignorant head.
I don’t know why you would be scared of LGBT people. They are just people like everyone else. They don’t choose to be gay so stop putting gay in quotes. I also don’t care if you technically call yourself “Christian” everything you spew is typical Christian nonsense. Also if you already feel that way about PETA then just leave it is that simple. Stop wasting our time and using points to get free stuff that you don’t even really support.
