"PETA wrote a letter to company founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield on Tuesday, telling them cow's milk is hazardous and that milking them is cruel."

I'm confused - don't dairy cows need to be milked? Isn't it cruel not to milk them? Or does PETA object to mechanical milking methods?

And, what a ludicrous idea, encouraging the use of human breast milk to ice cream producers! I'm very much in favor of intense means of preventing cruelty to animals, but I lose respect for an organization that acts in a way to invite ridicule instead of support.

Ugh! How gross is that! :eek: :eek: :eek:

PETA is a bunch of wacko nutjobs whose hidden agenda is to make any and all pets illegal and to spread veganism throughout the world! They should seriously have their tax exempt status revoked...if nothing else for funding the legal fee's of known criminals.

And I just love that PETA and the other animal rights nutjob org., the HSUS, had to eat crow after they went all over the media proclaiming how the "vicious" fight bred pitbulls from the Micheal Vick case were too much of a danger to the public to be adopted and should be euthanized. All but one are living in loving homes as beloved FAMILY PETS!!! So suck it, PETA and HSUS!!! :D

I live in the country so my view is slightly different. But common they are animals adn as long as you dont torture them then I dont see anything wrong wtih killing them. If we believed everything screamed when we killed it ex. apple then what the hell would we eat?

Sometimes I think PETA would like it if we ate each other instead of animals.

BTW, my stepbrother made a mudslide for my other stepbrother using his wife's breast milk. I guess it tasted the same. :p

If it was April 1, I'd have thought the article was a joke. Sorry, PETA, no mama's milk in my Ben and Jerry's Vanilla! Just Bossy milk, please.

Now I have this image in my mind of all these women standing docilely side by side being milked.

And most breastfeeding women have better things to do with their breastmilk than make ice cream with it!
