I don’t think the people at PETA even know how to be active without resorting to nudity. I mean, when’s the last time you saw a PETA ad that didn’t feature naked or scantily clad women? I am by no means a prude, but using sterotypically beautiful naked women in order to advance a cause simply furthers the fact that it is okay for women to be used for their bodies. One of the main reasons I no longer support PETA is because I refuse to be associated with such an anti-feminist organization (and anti-fat too).
PETA has created some fantastic nudity-free ads in the past, and I’d like to see it again. Here’s the ad that brought about this post:
And here’s an older Joaquin Phoenix (!!) Thanksgiving ad:
Gets the same point across, minus the sexism.

Oh my gosh! I didn’t know that Pamela ad existed, and I kinnnnda wish I still didn’t. 😛 It’s disgusting, they are just exchanging one type of exploitation for another. And the ad doesn’t really get anything across. Okay, fur and leather are bad? Oh, I didn’t notice because all I could see was Pammie in hot pants and some naked people.
