If you happen to be a fan of the MLB, you would know that PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals) recently came out with the most ridiculous headline ever. PETA (Actually stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) recently made a claim that the term “Bullpen” is offensive to Bulls because the Bullpen is typically where Bulls roam before they are slaughtered.If you just read that statement and didn’t chuckle a little bit I feel bad for you. I mean come on, this shit is out of hand. Bulls don’t have feelings nor do they know or care what the fuck a bullpen is. But wait until you hear what they want to change the term “Bullpen” to.
“Bullpen” refers to the area of a “bull’s pen” where bulls are held before they are slaughtered—it’s a word with speciesist roots & we can do better than that.— PETA (@peta) October 28, 2021
Switching to “arm barn” would be a home run for baseball fans, players, and animals 💪⚾️ pic.twitter.com/2FzSpDG9mQ
Needless to say, PETA is fucking insane if they ever think that this will happen. Also, I reiterate why the fuck is this even a thing? I wish they spent more time actually helping out animals and less time trying to police our language.
