PETA's newest ad campaign  

There's really nothing like the unnecessary sexualizing of women politicians to even further hinder our ability to be taken seriously in the political world, as well as our plights to decrease our society's objectification of women. As always, PETA continues to set feminism back and sink to the lowest of the low when it comes to advertising methods. You never disappoint, PETA.

What next?

    I wasn't able to watch the video but I've seen plenty of PETAs sexist campaigns. I am all for ethical care of animals but several of their campaigns just make them look like a moronic mob. Heyyy let's support animals by objectifying ourselves! Let's paint ourselves naked! Surely a bunch of horny men will for some reason care about animals after this! Or the "i'd rather be naked than wear fur" campaign. Blatant self promotion more than furthering animal rights. I've never thought the throwing paint on fur coats thing was very wise either. If you want to be taken as a legitimate association you cant be doing that sort of stuff.

    This ad both shocked and disgusted me. It is fighting one cause by hurting another. Sure, being naked onstage will catch the attention of the people in the room, but is it for the right reasons? The men in that room may be listening to the woman explain PETAs goals for animals, but I can't imagine that they are more focused on the issues at hand as they are on her naked body. They are focused on her being naked, and also making sexual gestures at the crowd. She is more portraying the sex kitten image than the powerful animal rights woman, which is something that the feminist movement has been trying to fight for a long time, too. It seems they may have more supporters if they weren't objectifying women at the same time they were helping animals.

    When I saw this PETA's ad, it was disgusting. First, it was inappropriate and second, it looked like to me that she was doing this to get attention for herself. This advertisements gives the wrong messages to people and does not deliever the right one on awareness of animal rights. I think PETA is going overboard and does not convince me that they are doing this for the right cause.
