PETA? Porn? What’s the difference?

By Mike Barnett

PETA and porn are two four-letter words you’re going to be hearing a lot about.

PETA stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and is a group that promotes veganism. You know what porn is. Never shy about stretching the truth to achieve their objectives, the organization said they would start a porn site in December that would have enough adult content to qualify for the new XXX domain but would also add some graphic images of animal abuse.

The reason?

“The racy things we do are sometimes the most effective way that we reach particular individuals,” a spokesperson for the organization told The Huffington Post.

Calling all perverts, degenerates, deviants, sadists and freaks—PETA wants to recruit you to the vegan cause.

I guess it’s a fairly novel idea, extending prurient interests to the dinner plate.

It’s something PETA has tried before. You may have seen the steamy Superbowl XLIII commercial on the internet, where scantily clad women had erotic moments with vegetables. Trouble was, that particular commercial boiled over the top. NBC banned it.

Of course, PETA has never been shy when it comes to unclothed bodies. Naked men and women with strategically placed signs and hands are a mainstay of their outreach.

Take it one step further with some raunchy sex and animal rights propaganda and PETA reinvents itself.

Or does it? Looks to me it’s the same old PETA, different shock tactic. So all you randy, porno loving, fence-straddling herbivores out there, the bawdy bad boys at PETA want to convert you to the vegan side with a good dose of debauchery.

PETA, porn—it’s all the same to me.
