PETACraft

Post by - The Rose - on Mon Mar 18, 2013 3:11 pm


Gaming and PETA go together like peanut butter and some really fucking stupid bugs that keep swarming over the peanut butter trying to get your attention. In their long and storied history, they have protested Pokemon glamorizing cockfighting, Mario glamorizing the fur industry, Cooking Mama glamorizing Thanksgiving, and recently, Assassins Creed glamorizing whaling. Not content to just sit back and look like a bunch of asshats once a year, PETA are now planning to protest Starcraft II, for cruelty against rhe Zerg. I am dead serious.

"PETA—or, as we are renaming ourselves in honor of the expansion pack's launch, "Terrans for the Ethical Treatment of Zerglings"—will attend tonight's launch event in Irvine, California, and distribute copies of our new "Zerglings Have Feelings, Too" leaflets as a reminder that gamers and nongamers alike should have compassion for all beings—even those who are very different from us."
If this is a joke, its a fucking terrible one. It has all the sincerity of PETAs older videogame "parodies", just without the self defeating shock value.

"So remember, while Zerglings are not real, there are many equally "strange" and exotic animals we share this planet with who deserve our empathy. Just because crocodiles and snakes look alien to us, that doesn't make it OK to skin them alive for a handbag, shoes, or a belt."
Well, thats not acompletely accurate, as the Zerg are not reptilian, so much as insectoid, making them *SLAPS SELF* WHY AM I DEBATING PETA?!!?

PETA appears to be using this event to try and stir up discussion among gamers about animal equality, linking to a summary of the book Animal Liberation. I hardly feel I need to explain the problem with this, but for those of you who want to hear me rant: Attempting to promote compassion towards non-friendly looking animals by comparing them to videogame aliens doesn't work if the aliens are a race of hive minded killing machines who mindlessly serve the will of a malevolent consciousness. You goddamn hippy morons.

At this point, I would ask how any of you think PETA could possibly make a bigger jackass of themselves, but I honestly can't see it. Still, if you wanna try. leave me a note in the comments. The most creative (stupidest) suggestion will be left on PETA's forums, just to see if they actually do it.

Not too long after starcraft saw a new release, PETA cries out for more attention.

Enough of this crap for god sake.

Seriously? 'Zerglings Have Feelings, Too'? It's pretty much lost all the credibility it ever had, and that's not much, so it can basically do anything it wants and not look anymore more ridiculous than it already is.

PETA bugs me at work and at play. Arggggg

Other Peta vs games
1. PETA urges players to save the seals in World of Warcraft
2. PETA launches an anti-Mario campaign over the Tanooki suit
3. Call of Duty is apparently violent toward animals (Attack dogs)
4. PETA says Battlefield 3 is cruel to rats (surprised they didn't hit dishonored)
5. PETA spoofs indie game Super Meat Boy by making Super Tofu Boy
6. PETA make pokemon Black and Blue

New theory: The PETA Hivemind has been hacked by trolls, or they were just trolls to begin with.

I like men! I slept with Siets, Shadow_Links, CreaminFreeman, Hikarioreno, Nim, Severus, myself, Blazer, Jaysp, Joshier, BK-201, Karma, Spor, Shogun, Bato, Natsu, Roy, Maddy, YoSo, Red, DemonEyesJoe, Great_Oak and Wampa!

Maybe this is proof that PETA is the Zerg. Better prepare for the Zerg apocalypse.

Here is an alternate Theory PETA is a hive mind but they haven't been hacked by trolls they have been hacked by the Zerg. Who are hoping to weaken out guard before they attack.

Not sure why people'd get worked up over this. It's not like PETA has any mentionable push outside of ruining coats with paint, and I personally enjoy their game parodies and look forward to their future works:

I'm not a huge PETA fan or anything, but I'll admit I did find Pokemon: Black and Blue incredibly clever and pithy for what it was (despite being heavy handed as these things tend to be).
