Me and my partner are attempting to be vegan having been vegetarian/pescatarian for a number of years. I sent off for a PETA vegan starter kit magazine. Nothing too objectionable. But thinking about some of the campaigns over the years there are some I don’t agree with.
Bikini clad women doing promo work is using sex to get attention. It’s not needed. Themightyostrich nails it for me with his response. The endless sexy perfume adverts annoy the hell out of me.
Maybe we need a few threads a vegetarian one and a feminism one, and a PETA one too.
The comment that the women were not forced to do the work is a bit sad really.
I know people who have done this work and at time they are not told the whole deal. They turn up and it’s a bit less clothing. They need to work so may do a piece of work they didn’t really feel comfortable with as they have bills to pay and unlikely to get another job that day.
Now I wonder if they will have men in tiny Speedos doing the same tomorrow.
