I don't believe this has yet been discussed. I've done a quick search, and the results haven't come back with anything. Anyway, for those of you that don't know what PETA (The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is, PETA is a charity-organisation (based in the United Kingdom) which focuses on animal rights and abuse.

Anyway, there is a campaign going (I'm not sure it's a running one yet) to incorporate pornography into a PETA-based website (through the new .xxx domain) to further enhance people's knowledge of animal cruelty. I thought this might be a worthwhile discussion.

I'm not sure if this website actually intends to bare all, and have full, in depth sex scenes, or whether it's more advertisement posing of models ect. There are several campaign posters running around the internet already, though I'd have thought that (with the detailed domain coming in) it's content would be more... raunchy.

That being said, forget animal rights, what about human rights, or woman's rights? Granted I doubt anyone will be forced to participate in these acts, but pornography is pornography, and I personally don't see the logic in mixing the message of animal cruelty and pornography together.

I can't realistically see anyone giving that much care into animal slaughter if they're sat at home on the internet jerking off to hardcore pornography. I'm not sure exactly how the guys at PETA plan to implement their idea, whether they'll have background images, or whether running videos will have interruptions displaying animal abuse or what, but this doesn't seem to be a practical move at all.

I haven't posted any direct links here, but a simple 'peta porn' on Google will provide you with enough news articles on the subject. Don't worry, as far as I've been able to see, there aren't any direct links to pornographic websites (so I'm not here advertising pornography).

Discuss...

It sounds like a good idea to raise awareness. Although mentioning porn and animals in the same sentence might attract the wrong sort of people.

Peta recently complained about Battlefield 3, by the way, because you kill a rat with a knife in one scene. Those people are nuts.

WTF? PETA needs to be terminated. I fail to see how killing a rat with a knife is animal cruelty, considering it was a game.

How is incorporating animal porn onto their website going to 'increase awareness' of animal cruelty? Unless the animals are in to torture porn I fail to see how this makes sense. And if they were into torture porn it wouldn't be cruelty if they enjoyed it.

Go to hell PETA. People Eat Tasty Animals.

'Animal porn' has left a bad taste in my mouth, one that will not easily be washed away. Thanks Alakazam. :cort:

Indeed, this does seem a little excessive on their part.

:lulz: They're not advertising animal porn. They're going to be putting porn (between two or more people) on this new website of theirs which (I assume) is also going to feature background images, or advertisement of animal cruelty. They're not actually advertising sheep shagging or anything like that.

:uhh: Why would you go to PETA for your porn rather than one of the dedicated porno sites? Strikes me the only people who go to PETA's site on any sort of regular basis are the ones who already care. And they probably don't care to see tits and arse while they're busy browsing whatever weird stuff it is PETA sell on their site. Kinda gets in the way of the self-righteousness.

PETA is a stupid organisation. They are apparently serious about what they do but make no effort to be taken seriously whatsoever. This strikes me as one of their less ridiculous ideas ("sea kittens" anyone?).

If finding Nemo didn't do it, sea kittens sure as hell won't.

Really I'm not sure what they're there for. Sure the occasional crazy thing gets people to acknowledge they exist - but how do you translate that into political capital? Not all attention is good attention....

Edit: There's a thought - maybe they get funding by people who are against animal rights in order to make the animal rights movement look abnormally ridiculous.... =p

Now that we're on the subject of PETA, I don't even understand how someone can be against eating meat. =p It just doesn't make sense, many species are either omnivorous, or carnivorous. It's part of our appetite to eat such things. I'd much rather eat real meat than some fake shit made/grown in a laboratory.

The day I agree that meat is bad is the day that Lions and Tigers stop hunting live prey and switch to veggies.

In other words, PETA members are certifiably insane. =p

While I am also a fan of meat it does make sense to eat less or none at all. Red meat is linked to several types of cancer and mass produced meat comes from animals fed with all sorts of drugs and hormones. Not to mention ethical (the way some of these animals are killed isn't very nice) or environemtal (meat is costly in terms of CO2) concerns.
