Sometimes a little nudge is all it takes. Within an hour of posting about the "Euthanize a Breeder" bumper sticker that was offered for sale at Zazzle.com, it had been taken down.
Not that this blog takes credit for that -- our own members and other individuals have been busily writing and calling Zazzle over the weekend, letting them know how unacceptable the message was. They made the calls and they deserve the credit. But even so, we're still happy to publicize the issue.
It should be noted that Zazzle is still offering other materials calling for the euthanization of other groups. Hopefully these are taken down, as well. Regardless of the passion behind our political or personal beliefs, most of us can agree that calling for the deaths of specific groups of people -- however cute, snarky, or edgy it's intended to be -- isn't cute.
