Ordinarily I’m not too fond of PETA and its extremist tactics, but something I heard on the radio got me curious enough to visit their website.

I caught the tail end of the piece, something about humans should consume breast milk, not cow milk. It turns out the rest of the story is that PETA came up with this idea and decided Ben and Jerry’s would be the perfect test subject. The company has declined on the basis that breast milk is for babies, which fits hand in glove with PETA’s contention that cow milk is appropriate only for baby cows.

There were several comments, the most interesting of which noted that this would just shift abuse of cows to abuse of female humans. That might be – I can see it pretty clearly, actually – but I think the distinction is lost on PETA.
