Top Five Reasons Only Stupid Girls Brag About Eating Meat

Written by PETA | June 16, 2008

jessica-simpson-real-girls-eat-meat.jpgThe photo speaks for itself. OK, OK, I may have doctored it a bit to get the point across, but COME ON! As you can see, Jessica Simpson was recently caught wearing a “Real Girls Eat Meat” T-shirt. Puhleeze!

For a gal who’s best known for her less-than-stellar brains (Chicken of the Sea, anyone?) and her ability to proportionately fill out daisy dukes, I’m gonna go on record saying that if anyone had to wear a ridiculous shirt like this, I’m glad it was Jessica—as people are more likely to follow the opposite of her lead … ya know, since she’s so well respected and all (yes, that was difficult to type without tossing in a hefty LOL). Maybe the meat-eaters of the world will be embarrassed to be categorized in the same field as Jessica Simpson. Ecorazzi has more on the story.

Just for funsies, here are the top five reasons that only stupid girls brag about eating meat:

1. Meat increases the risk of breast cancer. A 2007 study of 35,000 women published in the British Journal of Cancer found that women who ate meat were far more likely to develop breast cancer than women who consumed none. Will Jessica’s next t-shirt will say, “Real Girls Smoke 3 Packs a Day”?2. Real girls don’t support animal abuse. Compassion is super sexy, if the huge number of hot celebs ditching meat is any indication. Young women turn vegetarian in droves when they learn that the meat industry cuts the sensitive beaks off newborn chicks and cuts off the tails of baby piglets.3. The meat industry is destroying the Earth. The only thing that’s hot about the meat industry is that it’s toasting the planet. According to the United Nations, raising animals for food causes more greenhouse-gas emissions than all the cars, trucks, SUVs, planes, and ships in the world combined. 4. Meat will make you fat. All the saturated fat and cholesterol in chicken wings, pork chops, and steak eventually leads to flabby thighs and love handles. I hope the upcoming “Jessica Simpson’s Intimates” line comes in plus sizes! Going vegetarian is the best way to get slim and stay that way. 5. Eating meat steals food from starving kids. Jessica’s trip to help kids in Africa got a lot of media buzz, but by gnawing on meat, she’s essentially stealing food from the mouths of starving children since it takes up to 16 pounds of grain to produce just 1 pound of meat. If more people went vegetarian, we’d free up enough grain to feed every person in the world. —ChristinePosted by Christine Dore

  • If you really wanna take the poor abused animals angle, please don’t forget the millions of animals killed every year by commercial farming.

  • chaz gidnats says:

    1. Study of only 35k by one institution is insufficient data, it doesn’t even say how much meat they ate, let alone what kind. The study isn’t even cited. 2. It isn’t abuse to eat a domesticated animal that was bred to be eaten and can’t survive in the wild. Further more you’re discriminating against humans as the only species that kills animals. Plenty of other animals eat meat. 3. The Earth would also be destroyed if we turned most of it into farm land. 4. Any type of food can make you fat. 5. Those kids were illegally concieved by poor 3rd world humans who knew they wouldn’t have enough food to feed their children. Their parents are guilty of child abuse for not being prepared to feed their children. Furthermore their government is guilty for not regulating it’s populations reproductive activities and letting them create new mouths to feed.

  • some common sense says:

    Im not here to justify eating meat nor am I here to bash vegetarians or vegans i respect everyones choices in life but what i will not stand for is uneducated posts. humans are omnivors we are designed to be able to eat both meat and specific plants to function. and by “largest/strongest/healthiest land animals” i assume you mean those herbavors or entirely different species are you going to tell me a carnavor is weak compared to a herbavor? its called a food chain its balance. Humans are different from those species of animals being bigger and stronger than us has nothing to do with anything. food is food whether you wish to eat meat or not is all based on choice lets be thankful we can make that choice today. Instead of being forced to scavange and find anything that could keep us alive as we did in the past.

  • A Logical Person says:

    The whole depriving African children is so stupid. Go i dare you try to send that food to the kids in War torn African countries and it will never get to them the transport will be intercepted by the government and the group will be killed. Meat is in our diet we survived evolution and made it to the top of the food chain by eating both meat and plants.

  • Kye says:

    I hunt my food so tell me please how harmful it is when being processed by me? How do I hurt the environment by sitting in the woods all day hunting. I think bowhunting chicks are super sexy and I am also compassionate and LOVE animals. I’m a huge animal lover and if you knew anything about the overpopulation of deer you’d see that. Of course, this article is not about deer but give me a break! You all are a joke. Take off your rose colored glasses and see that there is a vast amount of medical problems that vegeterians and vegans encounter than those who eat meat.

  • Anon says:

    Meat eaters are stupid.

  • Just The Facts says:

    – Humans need protein. – Humans need fat. – Humans need iron, B12, and many other vitamins/minerals. – All of these can easily (and cheaply) be obtained from plant and synthetic sources:split peas, chick peas, lentils, beans, peanuts, seeds, oils, etc. Take B12 supplements, and for better iron absorption, take vitamin C. – There are unhealthy meat-eaters. – There are healthy meat-eaters. – There are unhealthy vegans. – There are healthy vegans. – Eating meat is natural. – Eating meat is ethically questionable. – Eating meat is not sustainable for 7 billion people on earth. – Veganism is better for humans, animals, and the environment. It also makes trolls mad.

  • Pridesblood says:

    If you guys didn’t make it so easy to post in your website, maybe there wouldn’t be so much hate. 1. Meat is not made out of grass, so the meat we get from animals isn’t pure plant, it’s muscles created by the plant yes, but no, muscle is not a plant and won’t grow if you plant it. Argument of animals are eating grass so why don’t we cut out the middleman:won by the mea eaters 2. Fat within the right limits is good for a person, along with the protein obtained from said animal eating, so there goes your it’s unhealthy to have fat argument, it’s also unhealthy not to have it. 3. I know that you guys are set in your vegan path, so I’m not going to probably be able to change your minds, but please think, at the very least, about the operation you support and how far they go to make a point. They sued Mario for wearing an animal fur in a game for gods sake, and if you haven’t seen the poster they made after a shark attack, read that too. They made fun of a man who was fishing because his leg was seriously wounded by a shark he reeled in. They put the lives of animals before humans, they would rather worry about if the shark was hurt then if the man made it out alive. I don’t believe an animal is an extremely lesser being, I mean heck I’m a veterinarian and I’ve watched kids cry at the loss of animals and the hurt that they have expierienced, I know the pain very well but I don’t put them above a human life, or make a sick joke to prove a point. Please just rethink your alliegence to this organization. That is all.

  • Srsly guise says:

    I wonder why so many meat eaters have to come here and scream to justify their behavior? who are they trying to kid? I also have a quest for them: Where do some of the earths largest/strongest/healthiest land animals get THEIR protein?

  • Cara says:

    Meat-eaters, please do your trolling elsewhere. If meat were “natural” for us to eat, why does every human being on the planet have the basic conscience to not kill animals? Why do we shudder at the thought of eating a dog or a cat, then turn around and say eating cows and pigs are fine? It’s because we’ve been programmed to see certain animals as food, not because it’s natural. And perhaps some of you didn’t get the memo that vegans are much healthier than meat-eaters. Maybe you guys would know that if you actually read this article. So go ahead and tell yourself that going against your conscience and killing animals is fine. I’ll be the one living years longer than you while you get your cancer diagnosis!

  • Heather says:

    Lean meats don’t make you fat. Eating lots of complex carbs, oils and sugars do.

  • Commonsense says:

    Eating meat is a part of basic human survival. We need protein just like lions and tigers do. Our bodies are not designed to be herbivores (wrong type of teeth, intestines too short, chemical imbalance, etc) I agree that torturing an animal is inhumane but humans did not invent this. Watch a mother orca kill a seal pup to show her young how to hunt. That pup suffers for a good 10-15 minutes before it finally dies. Watch a group of tigers stalk an injured or sick antelope and you will realize we are far from the cruelest animal on this planet. If you want to be vegan or vegetarian, go ahead and enjoy yourself. Enjoy your supplements that you must take because the human body is not designed to be without certain essential minerals. If you dont think you need these supplements, enjoy your life of continuous illness because your body does not have the proper energy to fight the common cold. But, do not look down on me because I do what is completely natural. You live your life your way and you will not hear a word from me but I expect the same.

  • hunter person says:

    all u vegans listen up!!!! it took man too long to get to the head of the food chain to become lettuce suckers again!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • a fat meat eater says:

    Guys this is ridiculous. And jessica simpson? puhleez, that girl weighs like a hundred pounds, if only she ate only vegan food she can be acceptable in todays society. Anyway, meat eaters are murders because they give in to basic survival instincts to eat protein rich meat instead of leaves.

    p.s im superior to everyone because I falsely believe that im right

  • N says:

    I don’t think it’s even really intended a sexual phrase. Her boyfriend at the time’s ex is a vegetarian. It was just a catty dig at her.

  • Al12 says:

    Yeah this could be a sexual phrase… but if Jessica is supporting meat eaters (probably because she is from texas) then that is pure evil. There is nothing right about slaughtering a poor animal. Just so you know for those of you who claim that eating meat is natural, well most of mankind has lived on vegetarian diets. “Man’s structure, external and internal, compared with that of the other animals, shows that fruit and succulent vegetables constitute his natural food.”

  • Meat Eater says:

    Normally I would respect other peoples opinions and accept that they may feel differently to me but as none of you seem to have any respect for non-vegetarians I’ll stand up for us meat eaters. Eating meat is natural. Humans have always eaten meat, that’s why people talk about the hunter gatherer instincts. We breed animals for the purpose of killing them to use their skins or eat there meat or whatever. In nature animals are always dying, hello the food chain! Cats eat birds, birds eat worms. I agree that sometimes the way we treat animals is can be cruel but if you are opposed to this them but free range and organic food. My country house and grandparents house are both near farms and the animals seen to have a perfectly nice life, being fed regularly and kept safe from predators that would probably kill them in a far less painless way. I’m not an expert on animal slaughtering but I think I can fairly safely assure you that they don’t tear the animal limb from limb like other animals might. The animals we eat are bred for a purpose and if you remove that purpose (to use their skins and eat there flesh) then you remove the use of the animals. If humans stopped eating meat then all the farms would just grow crops and then what would happen to all the sheep and cows and such? Also whoever said that eating meat deprives african children of their food that’s ****. I can’t imagine how you came up with the logic for that. Of all the reasons for africans starving I really doubt that it’s because we eat meat. Like I said earlier EATING MEAT IS NATURAL.

    Yours sincerely

    a Meat Eater

  • gis web server says:

    This is really nice post Jessica. The world is turning pure vegetarian and even I gave up eating meat before 2 years. Campaigns should be organized to stop killing innocent animals and the guilt should be severely punished.

  • animal lover says:

    And Saucy PLEASE DON’T tell me that most lions and wolves end up eating at Satan’s table?!?!? Seriously Saucy lions and wolves eat the flesh of other animals. It’s their diet. Why blame lions and wolves for eating animals flesh?!?

  • animal lover says:

    Rick or stelise said”If you eat meat you agree with animal cruelty”. That’s like saying lions tigersfoxesand wolves agree with animal cruelty. Those animals are CARNIVORES. IT IS NATURAL FOR THOSE ANIMALS TO EAT MEAT because they are CARNIVORES. It not a lion tiger fox or wolf’s fault that they eat meat. And a lion tiger fox or wolf’s diet is mostly made of meat anyway.

  • jordan goldsack VEGAN!!! says:

    meat eating is just wrong! its DEAD FLESH! its probably as bad as eating a dead human! i know tribes in the rainforests are caravores but there tribes…out of contact of our world so…anyway this tshirt is just wrong! my friend had the same one in bluefunnily enough the words looked like they were written in blood and i said “why the hell have you got this??” he said “oh! umm…cuz i like meat?” when i told him about the stuff that mc donalds and cuntukey fried chicken does to the animals he just said “im vegan!!” and he threw it away or burned it or sumthin…but my point is that animal eatingcruelty to animals mc donalds and kfc are all just WRONG!!!

  • QQ says:

    I love eating meat the satisfaction of consuming an inferior life form gives me the jollies! Also I’m unattractive and fat! LOL! What meat eater even THINKS like that?

  • Lizz says:

    I agree Jessica isn’t the most intelligent person but she isn’t fat. This article seems to say that she is wrong about filling out the daisy dukes. Being veg can be more healthy help people dump some pounds but I know “fat” vegetarians. Some people are just full figured because it is in their genes. You do not have to be a carrot stick to be sexy you just have to eat one

  • Gaven C. says:

    This article makes you all sound superficial. I rather be full figured instead of a peaked one.

  • Amanda says:

    YEAH ok. This article makes being vegetarian sound so superficial. ALL THE SKINNY PRETTY GIRLS ARE DOING IT! Jessica Simpson has a womans body shame on her right? Give me a break. By the way I know tons of fat vegans and vegetarians. Carbs make you fat too!

  • Tobowey says:

    You guys do know that this is not a litteral phrase and it is a sexual reference.

  • nastja says:

    so she s proud of beeing a murderer? in what wordl of stupidness do we live…

  • Beej says:

    Haha joke’s on her. Now she’s fat.

  • short_pants says:

    Yeah because being sexy and “hot” for the sake of MEN is what being a real WOMAN is all about. Those greenhouse gases research BULLSHIT. Those are published by the hired lobbyists of big auto companies to take the load off their back. The same guys who say that cigarettes don’t cause cancer and shit. Besides you should do your goddamn research right! In one minute i found THIS on nature dot com relating to the same study on breast cancer you published “Although evidence that links meat consumption with cancers of the stomach colorectum and pancreas is increasing … studies of meat consumption and breast cancer have produced more conflicting results. A metaanalysis of 31 casecontrol and cohort studies published before 2003 found a 17 increase in risk associated with the highest category of meat intakes Boyd et al 2003. However a pooled analysis of the raw data from eight prospective cohort studies from North America Canada and Western Europe was unable to demonstrate such an association Missmer et al 2002. Certain evidence suggests an interaction between cooking methods and diet in breast cancer causation. Studies however are few and inconsistent. …However the Nurses’ Health nested casecontrol study found no increase in risk with cooking method or meat intake even for consumption of charred meat more than once a week in rapid acetylator …Other inconsistencies may arise owing to biases errors and the homogeneity of diet within individual population groups” I have a research for you 47 of all the halfblack men who use their left foot more than the right one are 31 more likely to get hit by an airplane in midair while parachuting. Published on the Royal Journal of Real Science. I think MY imagination is better.

Mindlessly bashing a celebrity isn’t the most logical of ways to get you’re point across. People eat what they want to eat I eat meat but that doesn’t mean I’ll be whipping bbq sauce at a vegetarian anytime soon.

  • Chris says:

    I’m glad all you are mad about meat. But guess what? The stuff in the meat is going to kill me just as fast as the pesticides in your salads. Think about that.

  • Drue says:

    okay guys the whole point of the shirt is the double entendre and being proudjust like vegetarians are proud of her life choice truly enlightened people understand that and accept people for their differences instead of getting cranky and mudslinging

  • Sarah says:

    there are essential amino acids you can’t get while being a vegetarian let alone a vegan. She may not be the brightest bulb but there are dumber out there and they may have written something on this blog.

  • Jeff Jackson says:

    This makes me sick. Not only is she ignorant on the facts of the meat industry but she’s oblivious to what’s happening around her. I think she should have to visit a kill room in a slaughter house or listen as a innocent baby pig is getting its tail cut off. I am a vegetarian and I did it to save animals and this makes me sick!!

  • Matthew Smith says:

    Ok people.. vegitarians are good meat eater are good. there is no right or wrong between the two. there are just rules you have to follow. Vegitarians have to watch what vitamins go in to make sure they get everything they need. Meat eaters can not eat just any meat. in the bible it says to eat animals that eat plants. and it says that animals do have souls so killing for enjoyment and not eating them is wrong but killing to feed is right. So eating me it not a bad thing if your doing it to feed your family but going to a mcdonalds just cause you feel hungry is wrong. eat what god gave you not what man makes. If you buy the animal sraight from the farmer and the plants straight from the ground then you will have no health issues. so follow the rules and you will live life to the fullest.

  • ecology_jane says:

    As someone who studied anthropology in college including human evolution and went on to get a graduate degree in cultural ecology I DO think humans are biologically designed to be omnivores. I do NOT think meat is murder but i also do NOT think people should be eating meat in this day and age or at least not as much as we do. I choose not to eat it at all for environmental reasons but I am supportive of people who eat it in small amounts. I’m not talking about socalled “global warming” here though that’s something to consider I’m talking about the ridiculous amount of land and energy that is consumed wasted to produce ONE burger. Look it up the costs are tremendous and the benefits are pathetically small. As a country Americans eat way more meat than what is needed to stay healthy and we are sacrificing longterm broadly based goals helping feed the whole planet preventing environmental degradation that will eventually kill us all for selfish shortterm narrowly applicable benefits like making a little money off cattle or getting a cheap big mac. It’s not worth it. So I would say real girls do their homework check the facts PETA really likes to twist them sometimes I’m not a fan. Real girls care enough about other humans to make choices that are more utilitarian.

  • Aileen says:

    How many animals had to die so that she look that stupid?

  • kittycatgirl says:

    “I’m gonna go on record saying that if anyone had to wear a ridiculous shirt like this I’m glad it was Jessicaas people are more likely to follow the opposite of her lead.” Haha you got that right. I bet a lot of people just become vegetarians for fear of becoming a “real girl” just like Jessica. XD P.S. to “Dawn” Please take your animal hating self and GTFO. Come back once you’ve done some research on the treatment of the animals who’s flesh you love to eat. Oh eating meat is fine if you can kill and prepare it yourself… just as God intended it. Could you look an animal in the face and then murder it? Carve it up and cook it for dinner with it’s blood dripping from your hands? Buying meat from the store you distance yourself from the fact that you’re eating another living being just like yourself another living being that has endured unspeakable suffering at the hands of the food industry. Do yourself a favour and research before you post comments because you just sound stupid and uninformed.
