PETA now protesting mistreatment of Zerglings... you heard me
Whoever is in charge of PETA's resources has officially gone completely insane.
Gaming and PETA go together like peanut butter and some really fucking stupid bugs that keep swarming over the peanut butter trying to get your attention. In their long and storied history, they have protested Pokemon glamorizing cockfighting, Mario glamorizing the fur industry, Cooking Mama glamorizing Thanksgiving, and recently, Assassins Creed glamorizing whaling. Not content to just sit back and look like a bunch of asshats once a year, PETA are now planning to protest Starcraft II, for cruelty against rhe Zerg. I am dead serious.
If this is a joke, its a fucking terrible one. It has all the sincerity of PETAs older videogame "parodies", just without the self defeating shock value.
Well, thats not acompletely accurate, as the Zerg are not reptilian, so much as insectoid, making them *SLAPS SELF* WHY AM I DEBATING PETA?!!?
PETA appears to be using this event to try and stir up discussion among gamers about animal equality, linking to a summary of the book Animal Liberation. I hardly feel I need to explain the problem with this, but for those of you who want to hear me rant: Attempting to promote compassion towards non-friendly looking animals by comparing them to videogame aliens doesn't work if the aliens are a race of hive minded killing machines who mindlessly serve the will of a malevolent consciousness. You goddamn hippy morons.
At this point, I would ask how any of you think PETA could possibly make a bigger jackass of themselves, but I honestly can't see it. Still, if you wanna try. leave me a note in the comments. The most creative (stupidest) suggestion will be left on PETA's forums, just to see if they actually do it.
PETA's only reason for doing ANYTHING is to try to get attention, not for the cause of animals rights or welfair or anything of the sort, just for the sake of the organization reciving attention
That doesn't even make sense. You play AS the zerg in this expansion! If the zerg are dying it means you're losing. PETA should support this game, as it largely features strange creatures killing humans!
Also holy shit, their new name is TETZ.(Teets, hehe.)
They should protest Doomguy's ruthless slaughtering of hellspawn, or perhaps Master Cheif's killing of the covenant and flood, etc.
PETA does realize that the Zerg are not only a collective conscience, so killing a zergling is like pulling off a flake of skin, but they are also MINDLESS KILLING MACHINES, that DON'T FUCKING HAVE FEELINGS BECAUSE OF THE PREVIOUSLY STATED HIVE MIND, This is like arguing the human rights of Necrons.
There was. Jim Raynor. He tried to befriend Sarah Kerrigan after she became infested, but she turned into a total bitch.
Aiyah... *facepalm* This is ridiculous... As for suggestions, why not the Invaders from Space Invaders? 'How are we to know if they're invading aliens or rare and precious bugs we're zapping with a stun gun?' Daftest thing I can think of.
With what they've been pulling recently.. I honestly don't know if they're serious!! I'm picturing its just a stupid joke/parody like Super Tofu Boy but again with all the idiocy.....(sigh) I just don't know anymore..
Peta is not an animal rights groups. I fucking hate these hypocrites. They're bullies and histrionic attention whores. They have no business speaking for the rights of animals when they themselves KILL ANIMALS. Look this shit up, but they euthanize domesticated animals because they don't believe in animal USE, which includes Fido and Fluffy. This is yet another publicity stunt targeted toward video games because they are smart enough to figure out the response from gamers won't be to simply IGNORE THEM.
I honestly wonder what they would say about torturing Cuccos/Remlits/other "innocent" animals in Zelda.
don't give them any ideas... actually... let them... maybe if they start doing enough crazy attacks on video games, then they'll start losing the supporters they have and they can finally die out
By their logic, we should all feel guilty about killing Flood too.
I wish I could go to that launch and yell at them for not defending Protoss.
Also What's next protest of killing the bugs in starship troopers
undead were people too
They should put a terran in the game that tries to befriend a zerg... right before he gets eaten by a zergling
tell them to protest the way Borderlands always starts the game by running over/torturing a skag
PETA-People Eating Tasty Animals
Ha this made my day
protest pokemon...oh wait
