People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to the oldest bar in Britain on Monday demanding that it change its historic name because “Ye Olde Fighting Cocks” is offensive to chickens.

PETA director Mimi Bekhechi said the name should be changed to “Ye Olde Clever Cocks” because that would “celebrate chickens as the intelligent, sensitive and social animals they are,”

“We understand that the pub has long been called Ye Olde Fighting Cocks and that there may be some resistance to making a name change, but just as many pubs with names tied to slavery changed their names to match modern sensibilities, so it’s high time for The Cocks to change,”

Carr added that the name change would “encourage people to rethink the way that we treat chickens and grant these birds the respect and kindness that they deserve.”

I wish they would just arrest the leaders of Peta already for participating in terrorist activity.

Chickens are victims of discrimination

considering the name of the bar, I'm not surprised that PETA would ask for a name change. I don't think the bar should change its name though.

I can't believe peta members are so oblivious to how they make animal rights activists look bad.

There are legitimate animal rights or health issues in the world and these idiots distract from that. For example, look at the over use of anti-biotics in the pig industry. It would make sense to go after that, but no peta attacks the most non-nonsensical shit.

Somebody needs to defend chickens. Tasty, tasty chickens.

It's time somebody fought for their finger licking rights.

Out of all the shit they could be against, they go with a bar name...

If the people at PETA saw what happens on a daily basis at my workplace, their heads would probably explode

Worth knowing:

Common chickens, like other birds, are, indeed, clever in ways comparable to human beings.

I guess I'm curious on this. I know that animal testing goes through rigorous standards (within a university setting at least). Unless of course it is merely the notion of "testing" that would cause the PETA members to froth at the mouth.

yes, I'd imagine the animal based experiments would go over poorly. And then all the animal derived products used

Meh, no one has listened to this crackpot organization for several decades. They had a chance to stay relevant, now they are just a bunch of trolls. I think when people realized they euthanize more animals than any other organization, they sort of lost their status as a legit animals right group.

Bbb....Birds? Yes! The name is about birds!

Anyway, Peta is like Green Peace and Feminism: It takes something that should be a noble endeavour only to smear shit all over it.

They'd have to censor the whole of England. I swear that country has a fascination with chickens.

It's not offensive against chickens. Stupid PETA. Obviously, it's offensive towards men who aren't all old or eager to fight but also sexist against women.

This whole thread is offensive and should be banned. Everyone should be banned. My feelings are hurt.

Are we certain the meaning is that of Chickens and not the slang for a certain something and a activity using said something against someone also using said something in order to claim victory?
