But They Have A Point

Years ago I was rolling my eyes at some gross PETA billboard, commenting on how much of a turnoff it was and how it certainly wasn't doing anything to help their cause.

The friend I was with explained that, no, actually PETA is very effective. Even if "everybody" hates PETA, many people think, "I hate PETA, but they have a point...".

They draw attention to practices many people do find abhorrent, even if the way they do it often makes people mad. You can hate PETA AND factory farms! Very wise middle of the road position.

Not interested in debating the effectiveness of PETA's tactics specifically. Just a general point about "radical" activism.
