PETA and Vegan Doritos

Here’s a link to a press release from PETA announcing the first-ever flavored vegan Doritos. All well and good, and it’s exciting to see the introduction of mainstream junk food that even vegans can eat. But as often is the case, PETA finds a way to blow it…referring to cows “raped” — quotation marks PETA’s — during artificial insemination. Someone’s either raped or they’re not, and using a charged word like this in quotation marks is moronic, and deeply offensive to rape victims and the general public alike. Hey, we’re supposed to be winning over the general public, not alienating them, remember? Link.
