Even if you love watching porn, PETA has reached an all time low when you look at their new campaign to raise awareness about veganism.
The non-profit organization, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has resorted to starting its own pornography site which it hopes to promote veganism through a combination of explicit porn and graphic footage of animal suffering.
Lindsay Rajt, PETA’s associate director of campaigns said, “When people first visit the site, it will be very enticing and once they go just a little bit deeper, that’s when they’ll be confronted with images that we hope will make them stop and think and get them talking and hopefully encourage them to make a lifestyle change to a plant-based diet.” – The Province.
Okay, first, kudos PETA for creating another porn site, because the millions of porn sites without images of animals slaughtered weren’t quite doing it for me. Seriously PETA?
Graphic images of animal suffering and porn don’t mix.
Who came up with this campaign? The last thing a man wants to see when he’s watching porn and “cleaning the pipes” are images of suffering animals.
This is a fail on so many levels.
It’s not just men and freaky chicks that will be offended. Women’s Rights groups were already all over PETA for past campaigns which they had been accused of exploiting women to promote animal rights.
While this campaign isn’t as bad as a billboard PETA paid for showing an obese woman with the message: “Save the Whales. Lose the Blubber. Go Vegetarian.” It’s still drawing the ire of many women’s rights groups who feel that PETA has sunk to an all time low.
I suppose PETA’s new slogan should be “Screw women and save the animals,” which considering their new target audience, isn’t too shabby.
PETA better be careful they don’t start drawing the ire of Men’s rights groups, you can’t mess with our porn!
Their Super Bowl campaign was classic, but this is just downright creepy.
This campaign does tie in nicely to PETA’s claim that Vegetarians have better sex.
Granted, meat eaters are more likely to have health problems such as erectile dysfunction, obesity, and heart disease, but there’s no scientific evidence that meat eaters aren’t “getting it in” just as good as Vegans. Obviously, if a meat eater lives a healthy lifestyle he/she is not in danger of enduring the health risks that PETA would like people to believe are in store for all meat eaters.
Needless to say, there’s plenty of meat eating in porn.
