PETA asks people to stop using 'bring home the bacon'

African Swine flu speciesism PETA

For instance, PETA suggests saying "feed two birds with one scone" instead of "kill two birds with one stone" and "feed a fed horse" rather than "beat a dead horse".

"I'm going to die laughing" is probably not the reaction PETA was seeking with its latest initiative supporting animal rights, this one demanding people abandon commonly used phrases with "anti-animal language".

The organization captioned its helpful chart with "Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it". It included suggested replacement phrases for common phrases that the organization says are harmful.

But not everyone was happy with PETA's message.

Michael Ignatieff-led university 'forced out' of Hungary
Hungary's government has dismissed the university's move as a "Soros-style bluff". Fidesz is Mr Orban's governing party.

Most people responding to the tweets are calling the suggestions ridiculous.

Don't mind our animal-friendly language but PETA suddenly tweeted yesterday (Dec 4) a list of English phrases that they consider to be discriminatory towards animals.

"Mentally abusing entire minorities is now being treated the same as saying phrases that have animals in them".

As you might expect, the posts attracted lots of attention, including a few catty comments.
