PeTA Porn Site Will Do More Harm than Good

You may have heard by now that the group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA) is planning to launch a pornographic website to promote its animal rights message.

PeTA officials say the site will have “tantalizing” photos and videos, which will feature animal rights messages. They say it will help them reach a broader audience.

That may be true, but is it really the audience they want to reach? I’m not going to generalize here about all users of porn, but I have a good feeling they probably are not searching for animal rights “messages.”

To go one step further, I would bet the porn enthusiasts who are hit with these messages will make a point to never return to that site again. They’ll likely also tell their ‘constituents’ (if I can use that term lightly) not to visit, either. I’m not sure if a dozen or so one-time visitors, who likely won’t repeat your “messages,” is worth all the trouble.

I don’t know about you, but if I walk into a fast-food restaurant expecting a cheap meal and, instead, am presented with a seven-course dinner with a triple-digit price tag, I’ll make sure to never return to that establishment again! And I’ll make sure none of my friends do, either.

Aside from that, think of all the PeTA supporters who will be alienated by this campaign. For a group aimed at promoting the “ethical treatment of animals,” why would they stoop to promoting a degrading industry which treats women like they were pieces of meat?!

This website is sure to become a public relations nightmare for PeTA. I have a feeling what seems like such a great idea now will be looked at, in retrospect, with more than a little regret.
