Poll question: PETA poll!
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Tue Jun-26-07 03:42 PM by jpgray
Let's have no ridiculous factionalism or brow-beating from the spear-carriers on either side, if you don't mind. I hope this poll will show that most people have a middle-ground view of PETA, but that the emotional reaction people have with the issue of animal rights, PETA's methods, etc., tends to radicalize everybody into insulting each other.

edit: There was some discussion about the third option being too specific, so I edited it to be a bit more general. If you support some (or all) of PETA's goals, but disagree with many or most of their methods, that's still the best option to choose. Hopefully this edit keeps the votes where they ought to be--if not, I can edit again.

Poll result (124 votes)
I support PETA completely, and their methods are reasonable (4 votes, 3%)Vote
I support PETA. There are a few instances where I disagree with their methods (24 votes, 19%)Vote
I support some or all of PETA's goals, but they seem to constantly attack the wrong targets in the wrong ways (57 votes, 46%)Vote
I don't support the goals of PETA, and I don't support their methods (39 votes, 31%)Vote
