PETA's always been kinda weird, but their latest campaign takes the cake. It's an attempt to cash in on the well-known fact that people prefer to help "cute" animals - like pandas - and not "uncute" animals - like sugar gliders. So, since no one wants to help fish, you get to make your fish cute! Like mine:

I think sugar gliders are cute. Based on what people pay for them it seems to be a reasonably common opinion.
The fish thingy is kinda creepy.

Yeah, I always thought sugar gliders were cute!

So are some fish. Maybe they can try and just put little puffer-fish and clownfish on their fish advocacy sites.

What, no sugar glider icon? I used sugar gliders as my example just for you. :)

[livejournal.com profile] sammka has brought it to my attention that I meant aye-ayes, not sugar gliders.

Why google image search, why?
They're just fucking creepy looking.

See, and that was my original point! :-P People only like the cute animals. They don't like aye-ayes, or my cute little "Snuggles" above!

Snuggles is cute.
I saw something about how people are attracted to animals that resemble young children in appearance or behavior. It makes a lot of sense, things that display innocence or are curious are very endearing.
