I'd Rather be Naked than Play Cooking Mama  (Source: PETA)
PETA says Cooking Mama highlights the suffering of animals, I say PETA highlights the suffering of people who aren't complete tools

PETA may be best known in many circles for getting hot celebrity women to pose in the buff to promote its anti-fur campaigns. The activist organization has some pretty zany views when it comes to aligning with the masses.

The fur industry will be glad to hear that it is not the target of PETA's latest diatribe. The casual video game Cooking Mama is the target of the latest campaign to stop animal cruelty. You may be wondering how exactly a video game can promote animal cruelty.

According to PETA Cooking Mama doesn’t include enough vegetarian recipes and isn’t animal friendly. Did PETA hire Jack Thompson and no one told me? What's with the video game lunacy? Seriously, PETA… IT'S A VIDEO GAME!

I even know a couple vegetarians and while I might think they are crazy for passing up a perfect rib eye, they don’t seem to mind video games (even the ones that cook). PETA feels that the video game is designed the highlight the "immense suffering" endured by animals before they hit your dinner plate.

The only immense suffering to hit my dinner plate is when my steak is over-cooked. I'm all for preventing animal cruelty, don’t get me wrong. However, massively stupid things like this make PETA seem like nothing more than a bunch of crackpots.

I completely agree with you, but I just wanted to raise a few more points.

Whilst eradicating animal cruelty is a worthy cause

You know what is a real worth cause? Eradicating HUMAN cruelty! What on earth does the "humane treatment of animals" mean? They aren't human, they are cows, sheep, ostriches... they are animals! By what moral code do people live by who place such importance in treating animals with more respect and dignity than they do most PEOPLE. People get all upset about homeless dogs on the street but people don't give the homeless guy at the corner a nickel in -30 C weather. I feel like there is a strong difference between a moral sense that believe all life should be protected (which would include both people and animals by the way) and only cute and cuddly things should be protected. The day there is lobbying for laws against stepping on spiders is the day I'm proved wrong.
