Do PETA's Tactics Make a Difference?

My husband and I disagree over PETA's effectiveness. I think this opinion piece does a good job arguing in favor of PETA. I think that they are effective and, while I don't always agree with them, we would sorely miss them if they disappeared from the animal rights community. They have an energy and edginess that is fundamental to the movement. They keep people on their toes.

Although I don't always agree with PETA's tactics, the unfortunate reality is that sometimes it takes 'shock tactics' to get any attention.

And to be fair, as I understand it, they have had a degree of success in promoting awareness of some legitimate animal welfare causes, and also in terms of pressuring a range of industries to eradicate some of their worst animal related practices.
