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.

Really, these people need to be rounded up and dropped in some wilderness village somewhere, see how Vegan they stay when they don't know where the next meal is coming from.

That doesn't make much sense. Drop them in a place where they don't have a choice and see if they remain Vegan? Most wouldn't, that goes without saying. However, they DO have a choice, so they make that choice. By removing choice you could replace "vegan" with anything and still use that sentence. "Let's see how much those bookworms still love their precious books if we drop them in a remote village where there aren't any and they have to get their entertainment elsewhere!"

As a vegetarian I can say that my level of health spiked up dramatically after dropping meats; and while this isn't to say that meat is inherently unhealthy (there are studies out there to read on that subject if you care enough to do so) my family and I are living proof that meat is almost completely unnecessary. You just need to plan ahead to be certain that you are putting suitable replacement foods into your diet to account for the change in eating habits.
