I Would Respond to Neil's Pro-PETA Observations, but The Onion Did It For Me

Advocacy Group Decries PETA's Inhumane Treatment Of Women

RSS readers: click the article to see the video.

The problem with PETA's increasingly chauvinistic advertising is that the degree to which it's "sex positive" is utterly dwarfed by the degree to which it perpetuates both the commoditization of sex and unrealistic expectations of female beauty. Now, how we get "there" (to a world that doesn't shame women for "sex-positive" behavior) from here is an open question, but I'm pretty sure this won't work.
