Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this.

I saw this on Veg news facebook page. I had to do a double take. Thoughts?

http://www.ohio.com/news/peta-proposes- ... e-1.478602

I made the mistake of reading the comments on the FB post. Many thought the idea was horrible and others felt that it would turn Dahmer's house into something beautiful.

No I don't think this is beautiful. I feel that it exploits the tragedy and Jeffrey Dahmer does not need anymore attention. This is the house where Dahmer killed, dismembers, and scattered the remains of his first victim. To use this to further a cause is just low.

Not only that, but if I ever ate at that resturaunt, Jeffrey Dahmer would be on my mind the entire time. And is one of the last people i want to be thinking about when I'm trying to enjoy a meal. The thought of him makes me lose my appetite. I also do not want veganism in any way associated with Jeffrey Dahmer. People already think that vegans are extremist and crazy and this is not going to help.

Honestly, I think it would be better to demolish the place.

No, PETA wants publicity. I'm sure they have no plans to do anything but talk about it.

PETA does this kind of things to get attention. The best thing you can do to prevent this kind of thing is to not give PETA attention, even to complain about it.

Yeah vice online has a piece from yesterday saying that PETA is not going to be able to do it after all because rezoning, parking etc. What a disappointment!! (I'm using my sarcasm font). Who the hell would eat there anyway? Frickin' jackass move, PETA! Makes me really riled up with outrage not at people. Who eat aninals but at PETA. I don't even like Katy Perry's song dark horse with Juicy j or whatever his name is for the lyric in it "she'll eat your heart out, like Jeffrey Dahmer" and have talked to my daughter about how shameless and disrespectful I think it is to use that so lightly for press and fame. What am I even supposed to tell her about this stunt?

Somehow PETA always manages to find ways to outclass themselves.

PETA will never go away as long as outraged vegans link to their website and discuss them on forums. Let's not legitimize their bullshiitake by noticing it.

In my mind, they're like the Westboro Church of veganism. Maybe the philosophical motivations and the levels of inappropriateness are different, but the attention at all costs goal? Yeah.

Its just so rage-y because everyone who doesn't know any better (meaning most Omni's) assume that because I am vegan I show up at PETA rallies and send half my paycheck to them. PETA does veganism a serious disservice with their stunts, IMO. And to even throw out this DAhmer idea, even as just a publicity stunt, is just plain insensitive and tacky.

The article is dated April 4th ... could it have been meant to have been printed on the 1st?
