PETA, The People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals Have No Problem Exploiting Women


I've never been keen on the shock tactics used by PETA to promote their cause though their latest advert which glamourises violence against women to promote a vegan lifestyle (see video above) goes a step or two too far. According to PETA women enjoy rough bruising sex that apparently men on a vegan diet can provide; the advert shows a young woman with barely anything on (there's are surprise) with a neck brace which coming to the end of the ad we realise was caused by wall banging sex!

While I find the advert of poor taste I wasn't that surprised PETA could conceive up such an ad since they have a track record of ads debasing women. Despite opposing the exploitation and abuse of animals they have no problem exploiting and objectifying women for their own gain, with many for their ads containing female nudity with derogative or sexually suggestive taglines, such as the "I'd rather go naked then wear fur"  usually accompanied by a naked celebrity female.
Few celebrity men have needed to strip off to support PETA, with the few that did only going topless (though a couple of them have gone starkers).


I'm sure PETA can only gets away with this because they are a charitable cause though thats just not a good enough excuse (if their ever was one), its also very hypocritical.

See below examples of past PETA ads (one of them has a porn star in it) and share your thoughts.

  1. Again, I agree, and think ads like this are so disgusting, boring, annoying, and a waste of time, money, energy and thought. Where is the class? Where are the morals? Nobody cares, and teenagers and children think this is the normal way to be. I am teaching my children that it is not, and they do not have to be like this. I also teach my children to love and respect animals. We could go on and on about that topic but the sexual advertisements need to stop...I doubt it ever will stop because people are stupid and they keep wanting to see the same thing, or they think that other people want to see these things, but they really don't. Only perverted people like these kinds of advertisements. You don't have to be prude to dislike this crap. I am a very sexual person and I love having sex, but I hate advertisements like this.

  2. Hi Jillian,

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I totally agree with you, its not about feeling or being prude, the ads unnecessarily objectifies women and contributes to the neutralising of sexualised female imagery in popular culture.
    I mean what has sex got to do with encouraging change in human behavior towards animals?

Music Review: The Weeknd Trilogy

Rarely do I buy new music these days, with it being even more of a rarity that I buy music from male artists. Reason being that I just can not stomach the lies and hypocrisy commercially viable male solo artists spin with their predictable music and unoriginal public image clashing fiercely with the reality of their private lives.

With music today being so limited in the topics sung about and (in making myself sound old - which I'm not) the lack of experience, soul and true artistry in today's predominately young artists, I was surprised and delight to find out about Canadian singer The Weeknd. I'm told that this artist has actually been around for a while, though it is only now that The Weeknd's music is reaching commercial heights with the song Wicked Games played regularly on the radio. While I have liked the song since hearing it, it wasn't until I had seen its music video that I really became interested in what this young male solo artist has to offer.

Rise Of The Beta Male

Interesting article in last week’s Shortlist discussing the demise of the 'Alpha' male and rise of the 'Beta' male.
In a nutshell, the article was discussing recent culture changes in male behaviour and attitudes which has contributed to the emergence of the Beta male.
Beta males are smart sensitivity men who invest in their appearance, they are said to have turned their backs on the old Alpha male ways of male domination, aggression and exploitation, instead they embody intelligence, charisma and are liberal thinking. According to the article beta males are changing the way we do business!

I was pleased to see that the article had made a connection with this new male attitude and behaviour to the adaption (for the better) to the feminist movement and the study's of masculinity, since the process of women demanding and slowly achieving gender equality has encouraged many men to relieve themselves of the emotional castration once promoted as the alpha male image of…

Book Review: We Real Cool: Black Men and Masculinity

We Real Cool take's a deep look at black masculinity and offers up a fantastic critical analyst of the pros and cons of being a black male in the US.
Hooks acknowledges early in the book that as a female her view point on this subject maybe subjective, though We Real Cool is written with much intellect and heart. It is with great passion for her black males that Hooks writes with, saying that the lack of critical writings on the subject by black males was the catalysis for why she wrote the book.

The book is a real eye opener on the issues and daily assault out black males face and easily related to black males in the UK. Hooks dicusses black male incarceration, Hip-Hop & gang culture, black male misogyny and absentee fatherhood. As a female reader the book spoke volumes to me, and in usual fashion Hooks drew from her personal experiences and relationships with black males when writting the book. This not only helped draw parallels between the black males in my life (i.e. fat…
