PETA goes wild in porn-for-animal-rights bid

Animal rights campaigners PETA will go wild later this year -- with a pornography website.

Animal rights campaigners PETA will go wild later this year -- with a pornography website.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has long deployed nearly-nude street activists to promote its campaign against the wearing of leather, fur, or make-up tested on animals.

But a sex site called peta.xxx, due to be launched sometime between November and December, will finally show campaigners in their entire natural glory, says associate director of campaigns Lindsay Rajit.

"We get as naked as we're able to legally. In most cities and states that means you still have to wear pasties and some coverage on the bottom," Rajit explained. "With the triple-x domain you won't have those limitations."

However, viewers will also be confronted by the naked truth of cruelty to animals, Rajit added.

"As soon as people land on the site they'll see some tantalizing images.... But we will also have that people are not necessarily looking for."

PETA activists, not porn artists, will feature on the site "because they want to do everything they can to help the animals," Rajit said.

She dismissed criticism that PETA exploits women while trying to save animals.

"We think every man and woman has every right to use their voice, their pen, their body to help the ."

Why would they be required to wear a Cornish meat pie?

Because rules are rules. That's just the way it is.

So you want them to show healthy, loved, sheltered, well fed and well cared for animals to try to influence you?

PETA is an embarrassment for the true animal rights... A profit oriented scheme really...
And they are the queens of hypocrisy e dishonesty since the real leaders of the movement all use make-up that was tested on animals and treat their illnesses and that of their family (like the cancer suffering son of one of the organization top-witches) with regular drugs tested of course in animals...
Plus they lie and distort the facts and sometimes simply make things up about animals treatment in different situations just to promote their cause!

Well, just another group of "do-what-i-say-not-what-i-do" people trying to tell you how to live your life.

Embarrassing and annoying...

PETA=HYPOCRISY LIES

Do some research on their tactics and how their leaders do not stick to what they preach before promoting that group of dishonest and greedy activists...

PETA is what you get in a country that has way too much money and time on their hands ... you know what happens in other countries that are poor -- they eat the animal- barely feed it cause they have issues feeding the people, and if it has fur its killed skinned eaten and the fur is still worn -- so you know what i have no sympathy

-- vote me a one cause i say human rights are more important than animal rights -- somewhere along the line people got their priorities screwed up

Beastiality would probably go against their values, so I don't think too much harm will be done. Animal rights are important - humans do need to realize that life is sacred, just as human lives are sacred. Native Americans understood this - so should we.

The funny part is, if they show gruesome pictures of dead animals, some people will still get off on it. In fact, that might draw a large crowd of wierd fetish people.

eat the cornish pastie and keep on eating...

...hm, why the loyalty towards human life more than, well, any life. its all the same. we tend to do all kinds of stupid crap out of self righteousness because what? humans deserve it because we're more able to exploit life in general, the lives of animals? We're bloody animals.

Porn is fully sick.

my arguemnet is yes we are all animals but maybe it's evolution pulling me to uplift MY OWN F'ING SPECIES before that of one i could comfortably EAT if i were starving. We drive by the homeless everyday and yet people have the time to support people that assault others wearing fur coats? Lab test - be against it if you want - personally i love every squirrel that dies so that the paint on my keybaord doesn't kill me or a HUMAN KID. - for every rat that dies in a lab thank you for being a test subject that wasn't a human -- and those rabbit -- yeah f' em they die so that fat as' americans like me can live knowing selenium that while it produces great color in glass would be toxic if it ever flaked into your mouth -- that 7000th bunny that died proved that statisticly years back ---

go save humans -- or save bunnies - you know what let me be the first to personally welcome

"Hail to our happy furry bunny overlords" when they arriave because we saved more of them than people.

I take offense to your above statement buddy...my son had cancer and nearly died....you owe my 6 yr old son an apology...he had no time to experience any proposed "cancer causing" anything before being diagnosed at 19 months old...although I happen to agree with the majority of other sentiments about PETA...gd hippies, but at least their willing to show some skin! lol
