In response to Jessica Simpson's meat-lovin' t-shirt—now available through the 23rd from Primehouse New York—PETA came up with "Top Five Reasons Only Stupid Girls Brag About Eating Meat." It's nothing we haven't heard from PETA before; the reasons are generally valid warnings about breast cancer and the environment, couched in PETA's typical propaganda rhetoric. But reason number four, "Meat will make you fat", is just plain offensive—especially since the post described Simpson as best known for "her ability to proportionately fill out daisy dukes" and expressed hope that "the upcoming 'Jessica Simpson's Intimates' line comes in plus sizes."
Excuse me, PETA, but whether we choose to eat a nice juicy steak or a big bowl of rice and beans, "real girls" don't all have to look like (rumored vegetarians) Kate Moss or Avril Lavigne. [via Grub Street]
