I'm no expert but I believe the definition of "psychosis" is the inability to separate fantasy from reality. Every kid watching Wile E. Coyote knows the difference

I agree that is an attempt to force beliefs on to others..  If anyone protests and demands change, it is trying to force others to do it how they like it..

But in the USA and the UK you can't force anyone to do what PETA campaigns about ...... they can't force beliefs onto another person.They can campaign forcefully, but whether people take any notice of what they say or not is entirely up to each individual.
All PETA is doing is attracting attention to situations it's supporters feel should be made public. If people feel uncomfortable about what PETA is highlighting(above and beyond the gimmicky presentation), then it suggests to me that their consciences are being pricked.

My post reads - Anyone who attempts to force beliefs on to others.. That does not say they actually do it...Attempting to do it and actually doing it are not quite the same..

You guys are seriously missing the point. Obviously, Pokemon aren't real. But the fact that they're fictional and completely improbable is the very reason that they're destructive. With the colorful monsters and the magical powers, the games cement themselves in the minds of children (and gullible adults) and subconsciously, they begin to see it as alright. So in a million years, when modern science makes it possible to keep an elephant in a "pokeball" and walk it around with you, the descendants of those children and gullible adults will find no fault.
Just arguing PETAs point, since no one else seems to be doing it..

The happiness trainers and pokemon share is one of the worst things I've ever seen. I have never known an animal to be happy in captivity, unless they are severely domesticated (dogs/cats) or fictional (pokemon). Pokemon subconsciously deludes people into believing that animals can be happy living in a pocket-sized ball - or a cage. Also, real animals aren't as bloodthirsty as humans, or indeed, as pokemon. Animals fight each other for survival; in pokemon, battle is glorified, made into a sport. Next thing you know, we'll be having organized dogfights in the streets, every owner trying to "form bonds of friendship and mutual trust" with their dogs. It's saddening, really. :cry:

Rumour has it that the next campaign will be against Fraggle Rock. Those Doozers didn't actually enjoy work, it was just culturally imprinted through merciless oppression under inhumane conditions. And don't get me started on Rod Hull! No wonder poor emu was always so narky, that sicko had his hand up it's cloaca for years :(

idk i never met a kid when i was younger that thought pokemon was real, but if the show is so bad then let the parents censor it from their kids.

Dude Pokemon is the Most Censored Show on ******* TV. In all of my Years watching it i have never seen any ******* Blood on the Pokemon, or the Human. Not even a Bloody Nose. Brock was Supposed to be like Master Roshi or Quagmire yet he never gets Laid. The show doesn't need to be censored any more then it is.

What kind of 'animal' is Pokemon? Where does it live and where is its normal habitat? I think it is just a costume not a living animal. How about spending some of the resources for feeding and housing the homeless humans as well as actual living animals that are mistreated and need help? The whole thing is making a joke out of a very serious issue and I am sure it offends more people than many believe. I love animals and I have seen some mistreated and I have also seen children and the elderly equally mistreated. This sort of idiocity does more harm to animal rescue organizations than it helps.Animals should not be used as entertainment in zoos and circuses. They are living feeling beings not carton characters and more harm is done to animals by encroaching and destroying their natural habitats for the sake of money or for human habitation. Kids are not that dumb that they do not know the difference between a cartoon character and a true animal. Shame on PETA in the US, as they are trying to make a joke out of something very serious that is animal abuse!

really PETA?...If PETA wants to be taken seriously, they should start off by getting rid of all those almost completely nude pictures of celebrities nobody cares about and actually put pictures of what they are about "saving animals".I dont remeber the last time I saw a picture of a half naked man or woman and making me go "well that right there just changed my mind about saving the animals"....I love animals and PETA just isn't doing much for me anymore.

You know, after thinking about this a bit more, I realized... The fact that PETA had to manufacture fake versions of Pokemon depicting abusive behavior should simply demonstrate all the more that there isn't abuse in Pokemon. If there were, they would just point it out in the actual games, and not fabricate grotesque straw-men.

Peta once again is synonomous with pathetic. They prove this time and time again from their own self righteous stupidity.

Those that mistake my meekness for weakness, suddenly find themselves destroyed.

I never watched Pokemon for the sake of my personal sanity but there is nothing wrong with it. I couldn't name one trainer or whatever but several Pokemon themselves so it looks like the trainers are getting the raw end of the stick while doing the world a huge favor. Animals fight in the wild in our world......thankfully they don't shoot fire or wrap themselves up in electricity like Blanka from SF2. It only makes sense for Pokemon to be capture and trained to fight properly in a controlled environment so they don't do everlasting harm to the environment and prevent Pokemon causalities that would normally happen in a real world thus making sure each species survives. Well damn it just seems these "evil abusive" trainers are actually do a better job then PETA on all of it's fronts.. sure they don't do naked celebrity's to show off their Pokemon(unless you do a google search which I wouldn't suggest) or other stupid acts for publicity but at least they are making the world a better for humans and Pokemon alike...

poor poor PETA they really do need to find something better to do with their time.

PETA wish to ban Pokemon on the basis that it causes animal abuse but no press has been given to the graphic violence of countless games aimed at teenagers such as Resident Evil, Assassin's Creed & Grand Theft Auto and many many more all of which dull the line between reality and fiction for a number of vulnerable young people.

Not exactly true. Manhunt generated tons of controversy when it came out. It's just that witch-hunts against violent games are old-hat, just like anime and heavy metal. Pokemon hasn't grabbed the headlines for years either. besides PETA conveniently forgets that we are merely animals as well so we don't count.

Dull the line? No.....
