I am sorry but that was the most retarded thing I have ever fucking seen, forced these woman, are you kidding me, yeah that money really forces em to put animals against their skin.
and all the protesters I know locking themsefs in cages are volunteers against animal cruelty who VOLUNTEER to do such things.

We gotta learn to see the beauty in each moment of life
Everyone has different pasts and we're seeking the light
The world is divided between peasants and kings
But the truth is everyone is looking for the same thing

I usually like The Onion but that was just ridiculous. I tend to find it funnier when they say something that's true or could be true in a funny way, rather than just say things that are completely false. I think the former takes a lot more talent and wit.

Everyone here is aware that womens' rights groups DO protest Peta for how they use women in their ads, right? The Onion IS parodying a real news story...

Obviously PETA doesn't force women to appear in their ads. They do it of their own free will. The women's groups protest that PETA uses sex to bring attention to their point, not that they mistreat women.

The Onion is a satire site.

I don't think it's sexism. The president of PETA is a female as are some of its supporters/workers/volunteers. They've had a few naked men in their campaigns but not as many, the reason being that men are more likely to respond to sexual cues than women. Because of this you'll tend to see more naked women anywhere you go, not just in PETA ads; it's marketing.

People who belong to groups that are looked at though prejudged views, can also have prejudicial views, even about the demographics they belong to.
