Hunter vs. PETA & 'diminutive male genitalia disorder'
Posted by David Brooks | Thursday, November 7, 2013
PETA, the animal-rights folks, don't usually have a sense of humor - but here's an exception.
Jim Romenesko, a media blogger who is very well known among newspaper folks, reports that Outdoor Life columnist Brian Lynn got a membership to PETA as a gag gift, and then set up links for all his readers to order free stickers from the group in order to cost it money. But PETA noticed this and redirected the link to a fake research paper by the "Diminutive Male Genitalia Disorder Resaerch Organization" that correlates hunting with, well, diminutive male genitalia.
Check out the Romenesko item here. It's pretty funny - which is unusual in the hunters-vs-animal-lovers debate, where self-righteous indignation is the norm.
Speaking of hunting, N.H. is in the middle of muzzle-loading deer sason. Rifle season for deer, by far the most popular hunting season of the year, starts next week, on Nov. 13.
