We are the ones. We want PeTA to continue to be a strong force in the liberation of animals, but find their current ad campaign insidiously damaging to women. We don't need another tired cheesecake shot of a naked woman flat on her back with a lobotomized "come hither" look. Photographic images of the protest that have circulated online show Dickinson slightly dressed in what appears to be sleepwear: The other women all appear to be much younger than Janice and are dressed slightly more revealingly in bras. We believe such imagery causes downwind damage to all women. The ad shows Karina dressed in high heels, makeup, and jewelry but nothing else as she dances with a faceless half body of a man in a tuxedo.
The change is in our hands.
Response to PeTA's "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" Campaign
The change is in our hands. Like many other ads from this campaign and others, Karina typifies a very specific white, female, conventionally beautifully, and able-bodied woman or object. Check out the hottest fashion, photos, movies and TV shows! We do not have a "blanket condemnation of female nudity. Newkirk feels that the ad is OK because none of the models were coerced or exploited to do the ads.
