PETA knows that they piss off tons of people every time they say something like this; it's all part of the plan. They may piss you off, but in the process their main contention gets out there - animal rights uber alles - and everyone ends up talking about it. (You wait and see; this thread will likely end up morphing into a discussion about animal rights instead of about stupid stunts.) And thus PETA wins.
If you talk to any of those PETA women who take off all their clothes to protest, they'll all tell you it makes them feel completely sleazy and humiliated. They don't care, because the TV producers will always - ALWAYS - put a naked girl on the air if they can provide a pseudolegitimate reason for doing so. The "reason" is animal rights, which will inevitably be brought up by the anchor or reporter. (You can't just report "Some bimbo stripped in front of City Hall today. In other news...") And thus PETA wins. The only way to stop them is to stop all discussion of them and their tactics whatsoever. And the media will never do that as long as PETA keeps on spoon-feeding them wackyness.posted by aaron at 6:41 AM on March 21, 2001
