PETA Germany Raps BF3

PETA Germany has issued a statement (in German) decrying the ability to kill animals in Battlefield 3, specifying an incident where the player stabs a rat with a combat knife. They mention the (according to our translation) "brutalizing" effect this can have on the game's "young male target audience" (Battlefield 3 is rating USK 18 in Germany), and note that cruelty to animals has been shown to lead to violence toward people. It seems this ignores that the game itself is centered around violence toward other people. Thanks James via BF3Blog.

Ive got pet rats, love them. The rat scene in the game didnt bother me one bit.

Why?

Because its not real. Seems like PETA is the only one that cant seem to make that distinction. Perhaps they should all see shrinks.

PETA doesn't care about real. They care about headlines that draw them attention, because attention draws them funding.

Complaining about PETA doing something absurd is like complaining about a reality TV star doing something absurd. A bit more annoying as PETA claims to have a real purpose, but in the end it's no different than Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton. All it wants is attention, regardless of what's needed to earn it.
