Breast milk ice cream cone, anyone?

Mooove over, Holsteins. PETA wants world-famous Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream to tap nursing moms, rather than cows, for the milk used in its ice cream. Full Story

This is by far the grossest thing PETA has ever come up with - yuck. I think those people have been sniffing too much glue.

Calves don't give milk so do not "suffer."
Cows suffer terribly if they are not milked.
Would it not follow that it must be cruel in some way to gather human milk??
PETA thinks this is cruel? But do they agree that abortions of humans are ok despite the risk to the mother?
Are they behind the arrest of a NJ man some time back for killing a rat in his yard inhumanely? How about cockroach killings? Or is that your grandmother come back to bother you?
Is it unethical treatment of animals to hunt squirrels, rabbits, whatever?
Insane and inconsistent wacky group.

What a great idea. I don't usually take PETA seriously but this idea has merit. I'll take this one step further with the suggestion that PETA have milking stations at Hooters. The cows now producing milk that lose their jobs would then be available to help the beef market and probably lower the price of hamburger and steak. This idea is good for the consumer and is tasty too. I give a big pat on the back to PETA for this. The preceding message is sarcastic in tone and nature and not meant to be taken literally. It is meant for any manufacturer of beef products. remember that eating meat is murder: tasty,tasty murder.

Can you read? Buy it or don't, but Ben & Jerry's is going to be made with cow's milk just like always.
The article is about PETA's zany request; it never said the ice cream would actually be made from breast milk.
But please do continue to fly off the handle about things, whether they have anything to do with reality or not - it's a lifestyle choice that only you can make.

Do they have a chemical plant in Rockville that is leaking some bad chemical? You might want to go see a doctor because with the statement you made, you must have been in contact with something really bad and are in serious need of medical attention. Mothers milk belongs to the infant children that it is designed for.

Did you read the part where it says to NOT take what was just written literally?

I would never eat Ben and Jerry's ever again if they bend over to apease these idiots. if they're worried about ethical treastment of animals....what about human rights?? what about all those poor women that would have to sit where cows once stood at the pumping stations?

by the way....do women lactate everyday? what type of hormones are you going that have to pump women full of in order to make them lactate everyday? what type of wages would they be paid? would they get benifits??? women at a pumping station, sounds like people pickin cotton. same exact thing. i'm not flying off the handle, i'm just pointing out some of the simple issues that would be invloved with this that PETA never tend to think about. i'm going home and having a nice big steak with a side order of buffalo wings.

PETA has nudged even closer to the edge of reality with this one. How do they expect anyone to take them seriously when they come up with this stuff? Cruelty to animals is horrible, but these folks are so off base that they have become irrelevant. They only thing they have ever done that I like are some of their adds with starlets posing nude. And I will think of this even further tonight as I eat my steak (rare, of course) and plan my hunting trip for the fall.

That was my thought when reading this article. Cows suffer if not milked. How crazy this PETA. But even worse will be some judge saying this is a good idea . The wacky laws passed in our country today I wouldn't be surprised PETA could win on this . But there aren't laws in place to protect the elderly like the Donahue case.

So what are we saying, animals deserve better than humans, that we can milk a human but not an animal. OMG- what is this world coming to. What about the HIV, Aids, Hepititis, and what ever else is out there. I'm sorry but this is DISGUSTING!!!

Why don't we just give our babies to strangers to nurse them. I know I would do that would you? So every one is expected to use a strangers breast milk, ugh!!!!

With a recent visit to "The Brown Cow" dairy, south of Red Lion, PA, the girls (cows) have misters (not bulls) to cool them, thick pads to lie on, and automatically walk into milking booths. The main problem at BC, is, the girls receive a treat after milking, and they are constantly trying to cheat, to receive the extra treat. I kid you not. If animals feel pain, which they certainly do, then is the treat factor more overwhelming than the pain factor on milking.

PETA, please do some research on asking the girls if they would rather have an arm shoved up there, rather than a nice smelling boy (bull) doing the job. Personally, I would think that artificial insemination is against most girls feelings. And those poor boys (bulls), mounting a plastic vagina. That's as bad as "old lady thumb and her four daughters". But whatever works!

I must further wonder, hope I don't become lost, but if it is kosher to have animals castrated, why then can't castration be applied to some very useless humans to prevent further degeneration of the gene pool. Makes as much sense as "titty ice cream". Let's get real gross, how about ejaculate salad dressing. This frickin' world is getting way ahead of me.

And lastly, we would have to change the old saying of: "Suckin' hind tit", cause most of the chicks I associate with don't have one of those. What a shame. As Rome burns, we worry about yankin' cow boobs.
