Instead of serious responses, I got a bunch of idiots ranting about how they're terrorists and started posting stupid pictures of their g/f's in fur coats and dead animals. Believe me, i'm not close minded, but next time post your opinions in a different way.

I go to the meets (know quite a few maxmembers) and you're all cool and down-to-earth. But on here, all it takes is one idiot to post stupid degrating things and you all jump on the bandwagon.

Grow up.


That is all.

You are bein close minded, people have posted legitimate arguments on HOW they resemble a terrorist organization. You just refuse to actually take the time and read how GREAT PETA is.........


You gave $20? You sir are a humanitarian! Keep it to yourself, if you decide to post on a forum and try to get me to THROW AWAY $20 dollars, i'm gonna have to post otherwise!

I'd rather spend that $20 on CRACK since it would be going to a BETTER CAUSE. All these movie stars and music biz people that you see on PETA's advertisements, you think they do that stuff for free? HELLS NAH!

And because of your 'good cause' your just putting money in their pockets rather than donating to say a shelter (as was already mentioned) which would actually USE the money to help the animals!

... people say they're terrorists? why? Because animals have no real rights. Peta gets reports (video evidence) of animal abuse, they cannot go to the police... they set up protests etc.

If certain members of the group get out of hand and go out of control, burn things down etc.. its their choice. Peta clearly states they are apposed to violence etc. you cannot control when a few member decide to go extreme and break the law.

You're too cool buddy, go smoke some 'crack' .. omg.. thumbs up.

went from calling me an 'extreme PETA member' (without knowing the facts) ... to jumping the gun and calling me stupid for posting that I donated $20.

"keep it to yourself" I did keep it to myself... not untill now have I said anything about how I 'so extremelely' support them.

Take a few mins and read their website before jumping on the bandwagon you closed minded jackass.


I can't believe a simiple post like this has surfaced so much hate/immaturity.

PETA is to extreme and should be directing on saving animals that will be extinct if something isnt done but instead it focuses on smaller stupider issues and uses unessessary means to fix a problem .. I wouldn't donate a penny to them. I rather buy a shit load of animals from the humane society.

I leave you all with these....

I've seen just about enough of maxbimmer at its best. I'm not going to hold this against everyone, there are normal members, (most of which actually make it out to the meets and dont' hide at home)

No offense against anyone. I didn't mean to anger so many of you. I simply wanted to help fund a non-profit organization that helps animals. If you see them as terrorists because of a few incidents (out of PETA's control) , then its simple, do not contribute.


Later ppl.

Totally respect that opinion. Don't agree with it fully... but respect it.

I think it's respectable to fight for rights, even those of animals. Most people don't realize that everything comes full circle, you pollute the water you eat contaminated fish, you endager species you run out of food sources.

Besides, nobody needs a fur coat.

I completely agree with you Adam, a lot of people are so immature here, I don't agree with Peta's ideas either, but you know what, you are right, the trolls here that start shit are the ones that never come to the meets!

They are too busy hiding behind the computer and stroking their cocks for some amusement.

I'm talking about people who are local here.. Which is why I would think it would be much better if we got more non-local members. For example, BF is more laid back than us, and they don't have so many pissing contests we do.

But I guess it comes with a package of having a local forum...
