So I was amazed to hear today that PETA are attacking video games once again, this time itís Super Mario 3D Land for the Nintendo 3DS. The reason that they are attacking Mario is because of his Tanooki suit, they are saying that Mario must have had to skin a Tanooki
to be able to get that suit.
Okay PETA I get what youíre about you know, I mean I am all for the Ethical Treatment of animals but you guys need to remember that your thinking about this is fucking insane and not to mention that you forget that it is a video game, itís not real I mean for god sake the man throws fireballs from his hands and grows when he eats mushrooms, itís not real.
So they did what they always do when they attack a video game, they make a crap flash game and slap it up on their website and then try and tell you to go vegan. So in the game
you play as a skinned Tanooki trying to get you fur back from Mario and thatís all you do, I mean it would have been nice to have some facts about the matter but sadly no, itís just another attempt for PETA to be PETA.
So I am thinking why now? I mean the Tanooki suit as been around since Super Mario Bros. 3, why is PETA only being outraged by this now and not when it first came up? And also if there going to complain Mario skinning something they also need to complain about John Marsden as well for skinning horses in Red Dead Redemption they canít complain about one thing and not the other.
But this has not been the first time PETA as done this sort of thing, remember Super Tofu Boy
and how they tried to make us all go vegan by trying to make Tofu Boy the hero that saves the day and making Meat Boy out to be a complete schmuck? And how they tried to make Cooking Mama
a sadistic animal killer who has no feelings.
They way I see PETA is that they are terrorists, which after some quick searching I found out that they are classed as a terrorist group by the USDA
. Which then got me thinking that since they will most certainly know that the USDA has classed them as this, wouldnít that make them want to change their strategy for what they do so they arenít put in that box? It seems to me that PETA just like to hate on things and that they donít think before they act.
So in assumption PETA really need to get the act straight and remember what than stand for and to get away from what people think they are, they also need to stop taking aspects of video games and turning them in to animal rights protests and making a whole bunch of us just scream at the top of our lungs in anger and also on a final note, PETA need to leave my childhood hero the hell alone.
