Just Go Away PETA

I'm all for PETA, really am. I don't incorporate fur into any of my outfits, no matter how much the thought of a mink coat on an August evening makes me happy. But seriously, the group does its thing and whatever ... I really could care less either way, but the idea of not needlessly killing animals sounds good.

On the other hand, here's something from WENN:

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen have been attacked by animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which claims they have "ignored pleas to stop wearing fur and using it in their fashion collection." PETA has dubbed the pair "the Trollson Twins" and "Hairy Kate and Trashly" in a stinging new campaign. A poster, with the tag line "fur is worn by beautiful animals and ugly people," is to be unveiled on Tuesday at their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Los Angeles.
Seriously, how can you respect an organization that would resort to such immature and stupid behavior? "The Trollson Twins"? Come on. And calling them "ugly people." Can't find a more adult way of criticizing people for wearing fur?
Better yet, can't they stick to getting actresses to get naked in their ads? That's a good way of doing things.

I've also seen them (firsthand) pelt folks in Manhattan wearing fur with paint squibs. Having a belief and speaking your mind is fine. That sort of behavior - and the ridiculous name-calling that you cited - isn't.
