Let me preface this by saying I am an animal lover. I have four dogs and numerous other animals. I've worked for rescue groups, and several of my pets are rescued animals.
I'm also infertile.
That is why I was horrified to read that PETA is giving away a free vasectomy in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week. What. The. Fuck.
It seems that not only does PETA think we have too many animals, now they think the Earth has too many people.
They decided a great way to get people involved in their cause is to mock the pain of the more than six million Americans who suffer from infertility.
I am not going to link to their website, because I don't want to give them the traffic they are looking for. But click here to see a screen shot and read for yourself what they are doing.
Now, I'm not one who is easily offended. I'm not typically sensitive about things. But this was just too much. For a large and "respected" organization to make fun of something so deeply personal and heartbreaking is just beyond my comprehension.
What's next, a free abortion?
