PETA asks people to stop using 'bring home the bacon'

PETA wants you to remove ‘speciesism’ from your vocabulary

Instead of killing two birds with one stone, we're now being advised to say "feeding two birds with one scone".

The animal-rights group is pushing for "animal-friendly idioms" and provided a list of suggestions people can use to avoid offending vegans, PETA said.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is now encouraging the public to stop using popular idioms because they are considered "anti-animal language".

Javier Hernandez leads West Ham to comfortable win at Newcastle
Javier Manquillo admits the second goal conceded against West Ham "was a killer" as they fell to a 3-0 home defeat. Hernandez, 30, has previously been linked with Newcastle .


In a follow-up tweet, PETA compared the "anti-animal" language to racist and homophobic language.

Some of its suggestions included "bring home the bagels" rather than bring home the bacon and "take the flower by the thorns" over take the bull by the horns. "This tweet of yours, equating "speciesism" with racism, homophobia and ableism is deeply disturbing". The Root called it the "whitest tweet ever."

Social media users have mocked the alternate phrases, with one person saying, "Come on PETA, there are bigger fish to fry".

New Blood Test Can Spot Cancer in 10 Minutes
At this stage, the test can only detect the presence of cancer cells, not their type or the stage of the disease. The tiny molecules that decorate DNA, called methyl groups, are altered dramatically by cancer.


Others dissected PETA's wordplay. Some also pointed to previous controversies surrounding PETA, including criticism over its euthanisation statistics.

"That should make racists think twice", PETA wrote on its website.

With the tweet, PETA, a high-profile animal rights organisation, have managed to drive their agenda while sounding tongue-in-cheek at the same time.
