- PETA's advertising tactics are unethical. Not unethical in the vague, 'I don't agree with them' way, unethical in the real sense of the word. Like equating meat to Nazism and vegetarianism to Christianity.
- PETA offers little in real information and a boatload of propaganda.
- PETA has vilified farming and animal husbandry. This doesn't hurt the multi-million dollar farms with horrific practices, it hurts the small farms that practice responsible animal care.
- PETA makes a ton of money off of campaigns that are downright illogical. Like paying to "save" a turkey at Thanksgiving. You aren't "saving" anything, you're buying into a big-ass scam.
- PETA plays the environmental aspect of vegetarianism while supporting meat alternatives that are expensive and not
manufactured locally. You know how much pollution is generated shipping food products around the world? A lot more than supporting a local small organic farm.
- PETA encourages activism as something that's trendy, not something genuine.
- PETA blatantly provides the wrong information about the Canadian seal hunt and makes it out to be the most gruesome event imaginable. In reality, the majority of seals are shot and the seal hunt is monitored by Fisheries and Oceans. It is illegal to kill harp seal pups and hooded seal pups and has been since 1987.

Just a few of the problems I have with PETA. I strongly believe in animal rights, but I can't support an organization like PETA. It isn't about statistics, it's about how PETA pushes their cause.
