PETA’s most recent, banned superbowl commercial.

January 28, 2009

Why Peta?  Please stop.  You make us all look like shit heads.  You’re the Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson/God hates fags of vegetarians.  All you do is reinforce hate, and stereotypes. Every time Peta is on the news, its “negative”, or “controversial”. Peta is a corporate representative/spokesman for vegetarians/vegans. As if the world doesn’t think that were all condescending, self righteous assholes, here we go again being portrayed  doing what we do best.  Although, this commercial is pretty good, and I know the angle they’re going on about vegetarians having better sex. They’re most likely referring to articles from Dr. Neal Barnard, who is an awesome speaker,author, clinical researcher  and nutritionist. Others have commented on this as well, but Neal was one of the first, and the guy tours the country and gives free lectures on going vegan.  Bless his little heart.  Here’s an excerpt from something he has written, regarding the “vegetarians have better sex”

“Studies have shown that impotence is often a sign of blocked arteries, and artery blockages are commonly caused by the consumption of meat, eggs, and dairy products, which are high in cholesterol and saturated fat,” says Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. “Animal products increase the amount of cholesterol in the blood. This cholesterol enters the blood vessels and creates plaque on the interior walls, which narrows the passageway for blood flow,” Barnard says.

But seriously, fuck you Peta.

  1. Amen, brother.


  2. They banned it because they thought someone might actually look at it. Fuckers.

    PS, I hate PETA.


  3. sometimes TV censors can be so inconsistent


  4. Hi! Was given this link by a veg friend. (I’m veg, myself.)

    Seriously nice post. I really want to support them, I really do. But when they cynically utilize heteronormative ideas of “sexiness” that depend on the male gaze for approval, I lose all interest in supporting them. I borrow much of this from Feministing, because I agree with them. And I should mention that they nor I think the women themselves are being exploited, it’s the reinforcing of a shitty kind of het-ness that is the problem.


  5. I’d like to *think* that vegetarians have better sex, but I don’t quite buy the validity of the Doctor’s logic, as much as I hate to point it out.

    I’d say not eating so unhealthy that you develop a problem of severly clogged arteries to the point of impotence equals better sex, which isn’t synonomis with being a vegetarian, or a vegan.

    But yeah, I hate PETA, too. They are do nothing but defame the entire idea of animal rights and vegetarianism with their close-minded extremism.


  6. PETA get on my nerves — they’re in a similar camp to animal activists, who, in trying to save the lives of animals, totally dehumanise people. Saying that, I think this is a little ironic:

    “All you do is reinforce hate, and stereotypes. Every time Peta is on the news, its “negative”, or “controversial”. Peta is a corporate representative/spokesman for vegetarians/vegans. As if the world doesn’t think that were all condescending, self righteous assholes, here we go again being portrayed doing what we do best. “

    You guys have porn on your blog. Doctored yes, and maybe you’re trying to be funny, which is fine, but you don’t half look hypocritical.


    • Hey Jay,

      Peta’s become the “spokesman” for all vegan/vegetarians. They should put more effort into cleaning up their act and becoming a likeable brand. I like pornography. But when it comes to advertising and hoping to “appeal to people cuz everyone loves hot chicks with lettuce leafs laying on boobs”, then lame. Yes, I was trying to be funny I suppose. It’s a “Food Porn” joke. You see where I was going with that. It’s really hilarious. You know, boobs.
