PETA: We Should Call Fish "Sea Kittens"

Another example of why PETA has lost what little credibility they had.
What's wrong with the name Whitefish High School? According to P.E.T.A., the use of the word "Whitefish" does not promote empathy for fish and other marine animals. P.E.T.A. (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal) sent a letter to Whitefish High School Principal Kent Paulson, urging him to change the name of the high school from "Whitefish High" to "Sea Kitten High". P.E.T.A. launched their Sea Kitten Campaign in October, in hopes that everyone will start referring to fish and other marine animals as sea kittens. The letter states, "we're proposing that Whitefish High School adopt a new name to reflect the gentle nature of it's current marine namesake. If the town starts calling fish, "sea kittens", fewer of these gentle animals would be violently killed for food, painfully hooked for "sport," or cruelly confined to aquariums".
We should totally start calling birds "Sky puppies."
