PETA Pushes For Pregnant Women Ban at Chicken-Eating Contest, Cites Potential For Small Penises

If you think PETA reached a new low when it placed a lettuce bikini on Courtney Stodden, well...

The organization is pushing for the National Buffalo Wing Festival to ban pregnant women from competing in its chicken-wing eating contest… because consuming this item may cause their unborn sons to develop small penises.

"Pregnant women may want to think twice before chomping on those chicken wings, or their sons could come up short," PETA Associate Director of Campaigns Lindsay Rajt said in a statement.

See, there was this thing conducted called the Study for Future Family which determined that chemical compound in chicken might diminish genital size. Maybe. Possibly. It's at least conceivable.

And that was enough for PETA to take its stance, while also listing its usual reasons for why folks should not eat chicken, whether they are expecting or not.

"Chickens suffer every day of their abbreviated lives, including when they're hung upside down by their legs from conveyor belts before their throats are cut," the release added. "They're also often submerged in scalding-hot water to be defeathered while still conscious."

And then to really drive its point home, the company told folks to check outs its gallery of nude PETA ads. That'll show those carnivores!
