Hilarious examples include Take a flower by ththorninstead of Takebull byhorns

PETAs ridiculed campaign inspired a glorious new meme.

The animals rights group was heavily criticized for comparing anti-animal idioms to racism, homophobia, and other discriminatory language. Along with their terrible opinion, PETA posted a list of very serious alternatives for anti-animal language.

Hilarious examples include Take a flower by the thorns instead of Take the bull by the horns, as if people could say that with a straight face.

Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it. Heres how to remove speciesism from your daily /o67EbBA7H4

And because the internet cant take anything seriously, PETAs attempt at comparing human suffering to using animals in poetic license is now a meme. From petitions to stop using anti-Bird language to quoting theStar Warsprequels, Twitter and Reddit users are trying to make our world a more inclusive place for all fandoms.

Despite being a meme, PETA is pushing forward with its anti-animal campaign. It recently changed its Twitter name to the bizarrely long PETA: Bringing Home The Bagels Since 1980.
