In a recent tweet, PETA has noted “Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it.” Apparently they are equating “anti-animal” language with racist, sexist, and homophobic slurs. Here are PETA’s suggested alternatives:
Kill two birds with one stone–Feed two birds with one scone
Be the guinea pig–Be the test tube
Beat a dead horse–Feed a fed horse
Bring home the bacon–Bring home the bagels
Take the bull by the horns–Take the flower by the thorns
Thoughts? Folks are in a Twitter-Storm over this…don’t we have bigger fish to fry? I mean, don’t we have bigger zucchini to grill?
