PETA pushes porn site to promote animal rights

Reuters reports that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) plans to launch a pornography website in the name of animal rights.

Reuters reports that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) plans to launch a pornography website in the name of animal rights.

 

PETA, known for its controversial campaigns, said it "hopes to raise awareness of veganism through a mix of pornography and graphic footage of animal suffering." The Reuters article noted that PETA has been "accused of campaigning for animal rights at the cost of exploiting women."

 

In any case, Lindsay Rajt, PETA’s associate director of campaigns, said, "We’re hoping to reach a whole new audience of people, some of whom will be shocked by graphic images that maybe they didn’t anticipate seeing when they went to the PETA triple-X site."

 

The report revealed that PETA has filed paperwork to launch its pornography site when the controversial new .xxx domain becomes active in early December. "We anticipated that this new triple-X domain name would be a hot topic and we immediately decided to use it and take advantage of it to try to promote the animal rights message," said Rajt.
