Dear Peta,

I am impressed by your idea for Ben and Jerry's to use human breast milk instead of cows milk. I am so inspired that I am willing to take this a step even further. I would like to replace all the red meat I eat that comes from cows with red meat from PETA members. I know the idea of cannibalism is horrifying, but I'm trying to keep in mind what is best for the cows.

Sensible enough letter for an over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek idea.

it is really funny. but doesn't the mother and her baby suffer if the milk is coming from human instead? Not to mention there are more milk produced by cow than human (human willing to sell that is). It also is kind of gross to think I am eating or drinking another woman's milk when I am an adult woman. Even Indians who regard cows as sacred, drink and eat diary products from cows.

PETA is funny somestimes with their wacky ideas. haha.

I think that drinking human milk is gross and cow milk isn't is just because you're used to it! After all, let's say your dog was nursing. Would you squeeze milk out of your dog's teats and drink it? I wouldn't, that'd be gross! But why is dog milk more gross than a cow? Answer: Because we're used to cow milk being a beverage. Dog milk and human milk, we are used to treating them as something for infants (of the appropriate species) only.

Overall I think this is actually a nice thing for Peta, because it shows that they do have a sense of humor. I don't agree much with them on their key issues, but it's always good to see that a political group can poke a bit of fun at things that they care about.

Every time I drink milk from a glass I imagine myself sucking from a cows teat. It disturbs me. If it was human milk it would not bother me at all.

I think PETA members are a bunch of fundamentalist whackjobs. With that in mind, I find their protests hilarious.

My favorite by far is the comic book they give to kids of parents who wear fur coats:

I wonder if the diet of these women would contribute to new flavors, much like this gent:

Why is the "E" in the PETA logo a different font anyways. Does this mean I should use quotation fingers when speaking that part of their name? People for the "Ethical" Treatment of Animals...

Piers Anthony had part of a story dedicated to this concept.

His take was that why is it ok to selectively breed another species to make them good (and docile) milk producers at the cost of intelligence, if we aren't willing to do it with our own species.

It's an interesting concept.

Sadly, Human milk does not have the same fat content as cow milk & is unsuited for making cheese or ice cream with.

Huh? From http://www.disknet.com/indiana_biolab/b120a.htm:


Constituent Human Cow Goat
Protein 1.2 3.3 3.4
Lactose 7.0 4.8 4.7
Fat 3.8 3.8 4.1
Ash (minerals) 0.21 0.71 0.77
Total solids 12.4 12.8 13.0


Same fat in both, although there are differences.

I'm liking this idea more and more except for one thing...

I imagine that people desperate for cash (say, strung out drug addict homeless prostitutes) might be the main contributors to the milk pool. Not that there's anything wrong with being a strung out homeless prostitute, but doesn't that exploit and subjugate them? They become our new "Human Milk Cows."

Might not be such a good idea after all. Next thing you know, we'd have some sort of Nobel Prize Milk Bank and "High IQ" Ben & Jerry's would cost $14 per cone.

From what I remember on "Good Eats" it may be the difference in Protein (not Fat) that makes human milk not possible for ice cream. I think the protein helps "glue" things together.

You're right, I mis-spoke a little. See here:
http://www.indrani.net/2006/03/breast_milk_cheese?page=1
Apparently the proteins don't curdle well. You could probably make yoghurt or sour cream though!

Not to be a boob, but I like mine from the source.

Sounds like most cows at dairy farms I've seen... minus the homeless part.

I said it is kind of gross to "THINK" ....not actually gross. I mean like you said because we are not used to drink human milk as adults, that's why it seems weird. It is different than if i said "it is gross to drink human milk". In fact you justified what I just said in your post already. People think what they are not used to is strange and weird.
