A PETA billboard in San Jose is claiming that people who 'still' eat eggs, can't claim to be feminist. 
The billboard, located at 1221 Oakland Rd near Highway 101, was put up in November and will remain up for the month. 
'"Face It—You Can't Claim to Be a Feminist and Still Eat Eggs." That's the message on a new PETA billboard that just went up in San Jose,' PETA said in a statement
They added that San Jose was a strong choice to blast the message as the city is city that 'boasts the highest median income for women of all U.S. cities.'

'San Jose is a city of strong women and thoughtful students, which makes it the perfect place to spark a conversation about the blatant misogyny of the egg and dairy industries,' added PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. 
'Female animals are sexually exploited so that humans can drink their milk and steal their eggs, and PETA's billboard encourages everyone to help end this oppression by going egg-free and switching to using vegan milks and cheeses.' 
The controversial billboard has left many perplexed and feeling like the sentiment is missed and over the top.  
"Being a feminist and supporting women has nothing to do with how one eats. It's how one treats other people,' Shirley Bell explained to ABC 7
'We have a movement right now that’s loud and strong and it’s being heard finally,' feminist Amy Carlson said to KPIX 5. 'To tie it to animal rights, that’s going to go down a whole other path.'
Anna Moore said: 'I was shocked that they actually put that up there. Like, I thought it was actually really stupid. It just seemed really ignorant honestly.' 
PETA would post a video to go along with the billboard called 'Why Feminists Must Reject All Violence, Not Just Violence Against Humans.'
