I saw this poster today by PETA , I wanted to blog a picture of it but WordPress on a windows 8 phone is useless, so all I can do is describe it, Its a bowl of cheerios making a sad face, the slogan reads “has your child GOT AUTISM?” Then “learn about the link between autism and dairy products” in small letters. I have to say I’m really bloody annoyed by it.
To begin with, there is no proven link between Autism and dairy products, this is scaremongering, nothing more.
The slogan, has your child GOT AUTISM is a spoof of the American billboard got milk ads, Autism isn’t a joke!
And the thing that has actually bothered me the most is the cheerios in the bowl of milk making a sad face, So the cheerios got Autism when the milk was poured on them and now they are sad? Like autism is the saddest thing in the whole world? People with Autism are all so sad are they? No, no, no!
The scaremongering, the guilt put on parents of Autistics just needs to stop.
PETA need to stop using autism to further their campaign against the use of animal products (this said by myself, a vegetarian) with a theory , not a proven link.
