Actually I forgot the PETA even existed. And yet I consider myself an environmentalist - although I'm not always setting a good example. Given that
my recycling could be a lot better, ....
So, I guess their advertising campaign worked.
Had their campaign consisted of an act of violence, we would not even be having this discussion. Since it seems we think nothing of a theatrical act
of violence. As images of violence, as long as they are not deemed real and just pretend, seem to be ok with the vast majority. But show a little
intimacy - regardless of the form - and people begin to either get uncomfortable or they like it. But for the violence most people either tend to get
excited by it, or bored of it, since there is just so much of it on television, the internet and in movies.
Not all vegetarians are that healthy either. Particularly the Carbivores.
If advertising campaigns consisted of telling us the actual benefits of their products as compared to another product, we'd never watch commercials.
They'd be so boring. Its only the funny, happy, dramatic or shocking ones that we seem to remember. What I find funny though is sometimes I remember
their ads but forget what the product was.
Society normally takes the middle ground of any subject - so without extremists we would rarely move to do the other thing, and we'd still be
building castles and tending gardens for our lords and ladies. Heaven forbid we should disturb the status quo, and disrupt the way things are.

As a guy, I have to say that I do just about everything one way or another for the ladies. So, I'd certainly be willing to hear these naked women's
thoughts. And I could certainly survive being a vegetarian for a day, or two, .... depending on how long they're willing to talk to me. And I know
for a fact that I lot of other guys would be willing to listen to what they have to say.
