Ahhhh Peta...People eating Tasty Animals.

I sometimes get lumped in with them because I am a vegetarian, not cool at all. I don't do extremism well at all.

I find the breasmilk thing creepy too, I think up to two years I could be comfortable, but I think it would start creeping me out when my baby asks for it.

Ha ha ha, awesome, Lotus! I like anti-PETA rants.

You know, that *is* a very good point about humans often treated with hormones, antibiotics, etc. In fact, not that long ago, they discovered that breast milk is polluted due to all the stuff we put in out bodies, the air, etc.

I am getting a good laugh from imagining "free-range" humans, though ;) I think that's something that was left out of A Modest Proposal...

The difference between treating humans and cows is that cow feed and chicken feed often has antibiotics in it for regular use. They don't use antibiotics to treat illness, they use it to prevent illness. This leads to creation of superbacteria which is highly undesirable. Also, some humans are sensitive to hormones, so these ones would at least like the option of having their meat/milk untreated. I like to see farms making the switch to more humane practices, which often coincide with the more organic aspects.

Since the babies are being eaten then it would be a waste to not use the milk. :roll:

Muhahahahaha

I am glad there are other people out there with a dark sense of humour.
