PETA wants you to stop using anti-animal language, compares speciesism to racism/homophobia/ableism

According to PETA, common animal-unfriendly idioms such as "kill two birds with one stone", "let the cat out of the bag", "take the bull by the horns", "be the guinea pig", "hold your horses", "open a can of worms", "bring home the bacon", "beat a dead horse", "more than one way to skin a cat" and "put all your eggs in one basket" can perpetuate violence toward animals and normalize abuse.
