    Default PETA strikes again!

    PETA

    PETA is asking the Associated Press to refer to animals as he/she instead of it.



    (This is Daisy. It belongs to a veterinary student).

    The Associated Press has a guideline that currently refers to animals as inanimate objects. PETA requested that the Associated Press "take a progressive step and give animals the respect that they deserve by revising AP style guidelines to reflect the usage of personal pronouns for all animals."

    Here is the link.

    Should the Associated Press refer to animals as he and she in order to give them the respect they deserve?

    I'd imagine vegetarians would probably be happy, but for those who eat meat, some guilt might build up from eating him/her instead of it. lol

    Who gives a fuck.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Formalities? Most people, already, refer to their pets as he/she. Also, I've even seen people, refer to other people as it.

    well yea if its a pet maybe, but who the hell is going to check if an animal has balls before refering to it, it just shows how bored they are.

    There's little point in using gender based references in a news story when referring to an animal unless the distinction in gender might provide additional information viewers or readers of that story need. Shrug, any difference which makes no difference is no difference.
