PETA Actually Asks People To Stop Using ‘Anti-Animal Language’ And The Internet Trolls Them Mercilessly

PETA is always looking to protect animals and keep the human race from abusing them or treating them with lack of respect. The group known as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have picketed numerous places around the world in order to get fair treatment for all creatures. Now, they have asked the world to stop using “anti-animal language,” but it has only brought about ridicule and internet trolls.

On Tuesday, PETA sent out a tweet asking people to stop using anti-animal language because “words matter.” They brought up the fact that as time moves on, social justice evolves and the language ends up evolving with it, but people need to learn how to accept that.

Social media must end anti-conservative bias

Like many conservatives, including high-ranking Republican lawmakers, I’m being discriminated against and censored by social media networks.

It’s no secret Twitter and Facebook — run by left-wing activists who despise President Trump and conservative values — are abusing their power and stifling conservative voices. Not only is that un-American, it’s also a gross violation of Americans’ constitutional right to free speech.

Fired engineer sues Google, claiming anti-conservative bias and reverse discrimination

The engineer who was fired by Google after he criticized its diversity policies claims in a lawsuit that he and others at the internet giant were harassed over their conservative political views.

James Damore filed a class-action complaint Monday after setting off a firestorm in August with a 10-page memo blasting Google’s “left bias” for creating a “politically correct monoculture.” He alleged that the presence of women is celebrated because of their gender and that white men were mocked with boos at companywide meetings.

#MeToo has a ‘chilling effect’ on workplace camaraderie

A lobbyist flies solo from Texas to Washington to press his case on the Hill, leaving behind the female associate who did much of the work on the issue.

He recognizes that his decision to fly alone is a lost opportunity for his talented young co-worker, but right now, with everything that’s going on, he’s not willing to risk a business trip alone with a woman — even if what he sees as caution strikes many women as discrimination.

A male backlash against #MeToo is brewing

Consider what’s happening in the capital of Florida. Female staffers and lobbyists have found “many male legislators will no longer meet with them privately,” reported the Miami Herald. “I had a senator say, ‘I need my aide here in the room because I need a chaperone,’ ” lobbyist Jennifer Green told the paper. “I said, ‘Senator, why do you need a chaperone? . . . Do you feel uncomfortable around me?’ ‘Well,’ he said, ‘anyone can say anything with the door shut.’ ”
