Why do you say PEETA for PETA? When it should be PEHTA clearly. What about jpeg? That's a "f" sound so do you say JFEG? Because I do. I ******* do.

You mean like "giraffe", "gem", "germane", "German", etc? Don't pretend the English language isn't full of soft G's. GIF is pronounced with a soft G because when it was developed its creator gave it the slogan, "choosy developers choose GIF".

ASAP means As soon as possible, yet the notation for the first 'as' is pronounced with a long 'a' sound.
Acronyms aren't meant to be pronounced, instead said letter by letter, but we choose to because it's faster. If it's pronounced with a 'zh' sound, it still makes perfect sense.

Acronyms are pronounced according to their letters, not the words that make them up.
And, the designers have always said it was pronounced as 'J', like gin, giant, or ginger.

Nato is pronounced exactly how it is sounded out using the letters like I said. The same with PETA and I have no idea what they're trying to say about JPEG down there. It's pronounced jay-peg.

Unfortunately, I did read your comment. It seems to be trying to argue against the natural pronunciation of acronyms, despite the fact that Nato is pronounced as it is spelled and definitely not pronounced according to the words it is derived from. In fact it was so backwards, I thought you might be arguing for my side.

Graphics Interchange Format. Graphics uses the "guh" sound, and so I will carry that over into it's initialism.

Well, the creator can declare it however he pleases.
You can call it whatever you want, but you will be wrong. The creator chooses the pronunciation.

you do realize acronyms aren't pronounced based off of the pronunciation of its words
take for example
GATS pronounced with a hard G
but it stands for General Agreement on Trade in Services

Acronyms are pronounced as new words, not as their component words are.

PETA, NASA, ASAP, etc...
