Peta at it again

with one comment

So I found this interesting video by Peta, that was aparently supposed to run during the Super Bowl and was not allowed, for obvious reasons.  These people will walk all over whomever to get their point across, and it’s really pathetic.  Let’s objectify women to promote our cause.  Nice work guys!  Women the world over thank you for not being able to walk down the street without experiencing the male gaze because of commercials like this that do nothing but portray women as sexual objects to be possessed.

This is not the first time Peta has done this, and I’m sure it won’t be the last.

I understand what they’re trying to do – really I do – but where do you draw the line between trying to end the inhumane killing of animals for the food and clothing (and whatever else) industries, and exploiting women to get the message across?  Is this really their best option?  I really think they need to rethink their advertising campaigns, because what they’re doing is parading women around as if they’re the meat and not the animals they’re purporting to protect.
