Ever since it began using scantily clad models and porn stars to make opaque arguments regarding the treatment of animals, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have become less an advocacy group and more a politically correct substitute for fetish porn. Now, they’re not even trying to hide that character.
You see, in the wake of the decision by porn sites to use the .xxx extension (as opposed to, say, .com) PETA recently took the liberty of purchasing the domain name Peta.xxx. Yes, that’s right. PETA now runs its own porn site. Gizmodo reports:
Collecting all of its adult content in one easy-to-access place is sure to gain PETA some extra attention. The site has enough adult content to qualify for the .xxx domain, but also some other graphic images of animals that viewers may not expect to see, PETA’s Lindsay Rajt told the Huffington Post.
Sure enough, beside a button marked “Sexy Photos” that brings up a page of lingerie-clad ladies holding PETA signs, is another marked “Hardcore Videos”—hardcore videos yes, but not the kind you may be used to. This page features videos of various types of animal cruelty: factory farms, abused circus animals, scientific testing, etc.
