PETA To Launch Pornography Website 348

Posted by samzenpus
from the one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-other dept.
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are planning on launching an adult oriented website to help protect animals through a mix of animal suffering footage and porn. I'm not sure how mixing the two will win hearts, minds, or naughty bits, but Lindsay Rajt, PETA's associate director of campaigns, seems to think it's a good idea. She says, "We're hoping to reach a whole new audience of people, some of whom will be shocked by graphic images that maybe they didn't anticipate seeing when they went to the PETA triple-X site."

    • For once PETA does something I approve of. Yes, get more female celebrities to pose nude! I'm sure it will turn me from an omnivore to a herbivore once I get enough exposure!

        One can only hope that too much exposure doesn't result in people becoming sexually aroused by cruelty to animals. I really think that PETA should have thought this through a little bit more.

          Evidence of thought processes at PETA is pretty thin. No doubt they'll attract almost exclusively either (i) people such as teenage males hopped up on hormones, who will ignore oodles of animal suffering in their quest for a few XXX images, or (ii) people with bizarre fetishes who would actually prefer the blood-splattered animals to be in the XXX-rated images. Perhaps it will even lead to a new genre of kitten-slasher porn or something equally gross (potential replacement for the goatse guy).

          • I now have an overwhelming desire to create such a website and note in the footers/meta data/etc.:

      Its PETA, they've been insane since day one. They euthanize animals, while declaring they are for animal rights. Their leder takes insalin derived from canines, while saying that no animals should be used for medical research. They want animals to be treated like humans and be covered by the same laws, which would result in them all being locked up for indecent exposure and public indecency.

        Euthanize? Try eradicate... part of PETA's mission is the complete destruction of species that have made the mistake of getting along with humans.
      • They want animals to be treated like humans and be covered by the same laws, which would result in them all being locked up for indecent exposure and public indecency.

        Yep, dogs humping in public. Shocking, isn't it? And best not to mention horses... At least cats do it in the dark, if a little noisily.

        Or just visit the zoo on a warm summer day. Most of the male animals have boners, in public, and in front of children. Obviously, they need to be convicted as child-molesting sex criminals. Hmmm, maybe that's why they're already locked up.

For those that didn't hear, and I swear I ain't making this shit up, PETA demanded that all mentions of fish be replaced with the words 'sea kittens" because people wouldn't want to eat fish if they sounded cute and that several thousand years of tastes and diets could be changed by calling a trout a sea kitty.

Both video games and porn, contrary to popular belief, have quality levels that people do pay attention to, and attaching extra crap harms that quality.

    In the 80s, when we were teens sneaking copies of Hustler away from older brothers or swapping with neighbors I remember seeing several issues with both porn and horrible war footage.

    Flynt was not afraid to publish articles showing exactly what kind of destruction the US was, or had been, wreaking overseas. And he showed the cost it had on the soldiers as well.

    The nudity and sex were not the obscenity. The murder of civilians and the treatment of those who had signed up to serve the country was the real obscenity.

    What they're planning, from the article:

    Visitors to the X-rated site will initially be presented with pornographic content as well as images from PETA's salacious ads and campaigns, Rajt said. Those images will be followed by pictures and video shot undercover of the mistreatment of animals. The site will also include links to vegetarian and vegan – using no animal products – starter kits as well as recipes.

    Either way, I don't see how this works out well for their message. How about online streaming of tv shows that hulu wont stream for free - supplemented with peta ads? Or, a paypal service - watch 15 minutes of peta ads, take a quiz on their policies, pass, and get $5? The porn angle is just too strange.

    • It doesn't, but PETA is so far removed from reality now that I don't really think it registers with them. They've truly left behind any notions of sanity, let alone any notion of sensible marketing, that it's all irrelevant now. This is so blindingly nuts that I think maybe the time has come to commit their board of directors to the insane asylum. I can only imagine that there is some semi-normal fraction of PETA's support base that's looking at this and going "WTF???"

    First off, when it comes to art at Burning Man, pretty much anything goes. However, PETA's "art" consisted of a film loop of pigs being beaten to death, shown on a 15-foot screen, complete with sound. They placed this on the Esplanade, Burning Man's "main street."
