PETA Made Me Do It: The 7 Types Of Sexist PETA Ads That Turned Me To Meat

Remember all of those GoDaddy ads that featured NASCAR driver Danica Patrick fake-stripping? PETA had no problem with those. Those were fine. But once GoDaddy created an ad that featured a woman selling a puppy on a GoDaddy-hosted site, A LINE WAS CROSSED. Of course, PETA’s rationale for their objection was as thin as their objection to most of the ads they speak out against — they argued that the ad featured a puppy mill, but as far as I can tell, it was just a barn.

So yeah, my issue with the whole situation is that Super Bowl ads that objectify women are just fine to PETA, but god help if an animal is even cast in an advertisement. I know it’s not PETA’s job to fight for women’s rights, but you’d think that an organization whose central belief is ostensibly that all life is equally valuable would posit women and men as equally valuable, too. (Which is laughable anyway; they not only believe in kill shelters, they run one of the largest kill shelters in the country and kill animals they can’t place faster than other kill shelters.)

9 Protein-Based Food Trends I Wish Would Happen

There’s no love for protein, man. I mean, yeah, bacon, but we’ve baconed so much that we’re about to have a bacon shortage. We need to replace the obsession. Here are my ideas: Keep reading »

“C’mon, I’m Brazilian. But I also love animals. So what I find really helpful — you might think I’m crazy — is that before I eat any meat I always take one second of silence to put my hands over it and bless it and be grateful at least that it was a life.”

– Supermodel Gisele Bündchen, on her practice of praying over all the meat she eats. Geez, Gisele. Considering today is World Vegan Day, if you feel that bad about it, maybe you want to just try not eating meat? [ONTD]
