PETA Is Doing What?!

Joey and I joke all the time about the I Can't Believe its Not Butter commercial that uses sexuality to sell butter, but this is just bonkers.

PETA is now launching a pornography site (don't worry, the link is for the news article, not the site)
--- umm, say whaaa?!

From PETA and the article:

"We're hoping to reach a whole new audience of people, some of whom will be shocked by graphic images that maybe they didn't anticipate seeing when they went to the PETA triple-X site," Lindsay Rajt, PETA's associate director of campaigns, told Reuters

The X-rated site will show pornographic content and images from PETA's more risque ads, Rajt said. Those images will be interspersed with pictures and videos showing animals being mistreated—and (we're not making this up) links to vegan and vegetarian "starter kits" and recipes.

"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," Rajt said.

Since this is my blog, I'm not even gonna try to be unbiased---this is just slimy. Besides the obvious problems with pornography in general, I think its laziness on PETA's part--I mean can they really not think of any other way to promote their goals than sex? Do they not have anything better to say?

What do you think about it?

  1. It's so sad to me that the world is so warped that this is what things are coming to. Pornography is immature and disrespectful, and as much as I think PETA is crazy, I thought they had more respect for themselves.

    Hope you're doing well, Megan!
