You figure it had to be coming at some point, right?
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals regularly goes to extremes to get attention, but the animal-rights group's latest tactic is making even more waves than usual. The organization has announced plans to launch a porn site, peta.xxx, to draw attention to its causes. Is this a bold, effective move or a "cynical and exploitative" tactic?
This will help PETA get noticed: "We really want to grab people's attention, get them talking and to question the status quo and ultimately take action," says Lindsay Rajt, a PETA spokeswoman, as quoted by The Huffington Post. Amidst the 24-hour news cycle, sometimes the best way to get people's attention is with something provocative. If pornography is what it takes to raise awareness about veganism and get people to stop killing and eating animals, so be it.
"PETA plans a porn site"
Allow us to retort...
... with some porn of our own.
