PETA, misogyny and harm.

Amanda Palmer wrote PETA a letter about yet another misogynistic campaign. PETA harms the image of vegans and they’re not vegan or pro-vegan, they shouldn’t be using the term ‘vegan’. Everytime we meet someone whose sole conception of vegans is informed only by PETA, we find ourselves needing to reclaim veganism. The Vegan Option discussed social attitudes towards vegetarians with a researcher who found subjects to rate vegetarians negatively because of PETA, among other things. There is a short and long version of the interview and I listened only to the former.
