PETA Sex Ad

PETA's Latest Ad Tries to Promote Veganism With an Injured Woman

Nothing mixes like sex and veggies if you ask PETA. They anti-meat group isn't afraid to use sexualized women to promote its message. Not surprisingly, PETA's latest ad relies on sex again, but if you ask me, it makes veganism seem anything but appetizing. It features "Jessica," a pantsless woman wearing a neck brace. Jessica is suffering from "BWVAKTBOOM" (Boyfriend Went Vegan and Knocked the Bottom Out of Me), a "painful condition that occurs when boyfriends go vegan and can suddenly bring it like a tantric porn star." The imaging hints at sexual violence, even though I'd assume PETA is trying to characterize the sex as being consensual and rough. If you go to the website promoted in the video, it touts the "dramatic increase in their wang power and sexual stamina" that it says comes with giving up meat. Sorry, but painful sex that leaves you in a neck brace is not a turn on or funny.

You know, it's not exactly well written, and I wouldn't call it clever, but it certainly isn't anything to be alarmed about. Actually I did think it was a little funny, to be honest. Especially looking at the geeky little guy she comes home to. I don't know, I think we could lighten up, this wasn't exactly a misogynistic and frightening commercial advocating violence towards women.

Wow. I finally watched this and I am speechless. Not funny, just sort of terrifying that this can pass as clever.
