Bring home the bacon? PETA says such phrases are anti-animal
PETA doesn't want you to "take the bull by the horns", and you'd better not "bring home the bacon".
The animal organization says such phrases are "anti-animal". They've developed a list of alternatives, like putting all your berries in one basket, instead of eggs.
On Twitter, PETA said such phrases as "hold your horses" are unacceptable, comparing it to racist language, saying it trivializes cruelty to animals.
Sen. Orrin Hatch responded playfully on Twitter, after a British publication published an article about this language debate.
Farmers too are weighing in, in support of bacon.
