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?
