Embracing misogyny, PETA promotes violent sex with new campaign ad

February 15, 2012

misogyny, PETA, violence against women

From likening the abuse of animals to everything from racism to slavery, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals never ceases to amaze me. PETA’s latest campaign not only reeks of misogyny, but also perpetuates the sexist notion that all women want to be treated like elastic porn stars in bed. Here’s a transcript of the video:

“This is Jessica. She suffers 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. For Jessica, it’s too late…please, go to bwvaktboom.com and learn to go vegan safely.

I…can’t…

PETA and its supporters have bought into the sexist notion that all women have a fantasy of their husbands/boyfriends coming home, ripping their clothes off, shoving their manhood inside their vaginas and giving them a pornographic sexual experience they wouldn’t dare verbally express to anyone. PETA’s ad promotes a male-driven fantasy of female sexuality that not only seeks to sexually oppress women, but to reduce us to nameless, faceless sex objects that only exist to satisfy a man’s innate violent, sexual desires.

It’s nonetheless disturbing that PETA has to stoop to this new low just to promote veganism and a world where animals can roam freely without human interference. No organization should have to embrace one oppressive ism in an effort to promote another.

    PETA is so full of fail I don’t even know where to begin on this one.     Maybe I should ponder that question while dining at my local KFC.
