I don't agree that PETA is nuts. I'm not vegetarian, I grew up loving meat, and I'm a barbecue champ (like most Texans). I agree with many things PETA takes positions on, but not everything. However I have an open mind and I've been exploring the reasons why people become vegetarian as well as studying what some philosophers have to say about killing animals in order have their meat for us to eat. There are valid environmental concerns too. I eat a lot less red meat now than I used to, I like to keep fit and it has helped to cut down on the red meat.
About the PETA Ben & Jerry letter, this is from a PETA newsletter on the subject: “Of course, one of our favorite writings about breast milk appears in PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk's newest book, 'One Can Make a Difference'. Check it out: An entire chapter in the book focuses on how human breast milk is better for babies than cow's milk is: A pediatrician in India in the 80s found that if she urged people to switch from formula and animal's milk to human breast milk (she even started a human-breast-milk bank!), she could reduce incidences of diarrhea—which were leading to deaths! Deadly diarrhea—do you really think that does a body good? Neither do we.”
Does your labeling them "nuts" have something to do with the fact that some people associate PETA with the liberal left?
By the way, at the farm where you worked what you didn’t see was when the cows birthed the calves were taken away and ended up becoming veal sold in the supermarket while the milk that the mother cows were making to feed their calves became the milk that went into the machine you hooked them up to.
