PETA Porn: Animal Rights Group Prevented From Airing Super Bowl Ad

defaultPETA has been blocked from airing an ad during the Superbowl that seems a bit like soft porn for vegans. The ad, shown below, shows models getting intimate with vegetables of various types with the tagline “Studies Show Vegetarians Have Better Sex.” It would be obviously inappropriate for most kids who will be watching. Vegeporn, however, could prove a new sensation with every other fetish covered on the Internet.

The ad is pretty explicit and it is surprising that PETA would want to show such material to kids, though the organization seems to primarily work to shock people these days. PETA appears to strive make people care more for animals by getting them to hate PETA. I suppose when people appear so obnoxious animals appear superior in comparison. [Update: PETA has now gotten into live shows in public parks.]

My greatest concern is that broccoli and cucumbers will now be sold in paper bags from behind the counter. The question is whether the vegetable industry will take the lead from the beef industry with an add campaign proclaiming, “Vegetables: Its What’s For After Dinner.”

Even YouTube feels it is necessary to get a sign on to acknowledge a warning on the content of the ad before allowing people to see it, here. As it turns out, Arizona viewers still ended seeing 10 seconds of real porn during the game. Though no doubt many Cardinals fans considered the game to be obscene and not appropriate for viewing by the end of the fourth quarter anyway.

For my part, I am disgusted . . . and I would write more but I have to run to the market.

    Buddha, it really irritates to be subjected to BS as though it’s the gospel.

    The effects of domestic abuse, in all its forms, is something I have seen too many times in my practice and in my lifetime, and is also a cause a group of my friends and I embrace, locally.

    We don’t have to invent disinformation to make the point. It’s actually counter-productive.

    Ariana did a relevant piece this weekend on the importance of supporting shelters in the fight against domestic violence in light of current economics.

  3. Patty,

    I am with you on the domestic abuse issue. What’s really sad is how mis-/under reported it can be. You know, mentioning “in all forms” what surprised me when I looked into it wasn’t that men can be victims as well, but it was a higher number percentage-wise than I had expected. Don’t get me wrong, women have the got it far far worse, but it’s problem PERIOD. It’s a horrible thing for everyone involved. The collateral damage to family and work is often as destructive as the abuse itself, compounding matters. A hand raised in anger is difficult to lower and swings a wide swath.

  4. You got that right…

    I enjoyed the game and the festivities, here, even more than I thought I would! But then, I’m a Pat’s fan… :p

  5. I agree with Peta about not treating animals and all animals for that matter inhumanly. I love animals and hate to see them locked up or chained and most i hate to see them caged. Any time i have gone to a zoo it has been rather depressing. The animals are unhappy as if they have lost there will to exist.. The one thing i do have to say i hate about Peta, is there display of practically naked woman bathing or laying on the streets! Come on.. If these people cared so much you shouldn’t have to lure them in with porn! Ok so maybe its not porn but pretty darn close! Girls showering together on a street corner? What the hell is that! Peta may be all about animals but they are a bunch of pervs if you ask me. Can’t you come up with more appropriate ideas to tell the world not to wear fur? I would have become a Peta member for life if you didn’t degrade women by treating them the way you don’t want animals to be treated.. Isn’t that being a huge hypocrite? Its sad, such a good cause and i am turned off by you. All because you couldn’t think of a better idea with your brains, you had to call up the men in your company and let them use there penis.. So i officially will not stand behind you until you come up with a more appropriate way to prove your point not to mention a more humane way.
