PETA continues to give vegetarians a bad name
Nothing is wrong with being a vegetarian, and nothing is wrong with believing in animal rights.

But believing in something is one thing. Trying to impose your beliefs on someone else is another. The fact that PETA is now bullying meat-eating celebrities to switch to a different diet is not so surprising.

But this quote is more than a little troubling. Apparently, Jessica Simpson wore a shirt that said "Real Women eat Meat."

And that raised the ire of some in PETA:

Alistair Currie, a spokesman for Peta, said: "Jessica Simpson might have a right to wear what she wants, but she doesn't have a right to eat what she wants – eating meat is about suffering and death. Some people feel like they are standing up against a tide of political correctness when they make a statement like this – what she is really doing is standing up for the status quo."

She "doesn't have the right" to eat what she wants? Do these people even realize the boundries they are crossing?

Suddenly, I'm in the mood for a Whopper.
