Animal rights group PETA is once again getting plenty of reactions from social media users after tweeting a suggestion to eliminate "anti-animal language."

"Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it. Here’s how to remove speciesism from your daily conversations," the group tweeted with a chart of suggestion substitutes for popular idioms involving animals.


PETA calls the use of these sayings "speciesism."

The group went on to say as people start to make these substitutions in regular conversation, sayings that "trivialize cruelty to animals" will fade away.
