What do you think of the new PETA ads — a naked Alicia Silverstone video PSA and another nearly naked Pamela Anderson ad? Are they useful and positive or degrading and harmful?
PETA has gotten a lot of attention due to its controversial Go Vegetarian ads featuring naked or nearly naked models and actresses over the years. Some people love them, and some think they are completely degrading to women. What’s your take on these ads?
Two of the newest are “PETA’s first-ever naked veggie testimonial PSA” featuring Alicia Silverstone and one featuring an extremely airbrushed Pamela Anderson.
Personally, I don’t really see anything wrong with these except for the extreme airbrushing of Pamela Anderson that I think makes girls and women everywhere think that they should look so “perfect.”
And the women, in these ads at least, look strong and confident.
But I know others have a different view. What’s your take on these ads?
