I’d Rather Him Naked…

MOJ Takes it Up with PETAPETA always gets a bit more attention this time of year for the mere fact that the colder weather brings out fur coats and other attire that they don’t necessarily approve of. Are you familiar with the group? I am, but barely. The organization fights for the ethical treatment of animals. Everyone has probably heard their mention from anything like hearing Pamela Anderson speak to the ads they post up. Who can forget the paint throwing incidents on fur wearers?

I don’t know if I can take the no fur approach being that I wear leather as well, but I do support ethical treatment of animals. For example: if a cow is on a farm and is going to be killed for meat, I don’t see anything wrong with also using the hide for garments/etc. but only if it’s done humanely. But I digress.

As people start to buzz about the ads popping up in the US capitol, of a famed first lady in ads, I am stuck on something else. I have been seeing plenty a female pop up in the ‘Rather Go Naked…Than Wear Fur’ ads, but nary a naked man. The closest? The recent shoot with R&B singer Mario where he shows off his tattoos to ‘make ink and not mink’. Here’s the problem: he’s wearing pants.

Check out the photos after the jump. There is a poll embedded in this post, won’t you please visit the original to vote?

It might be a different campaign, but still. If females care enough to shed clothes, males should too. Especially good looking ones. Otherwise I might just have to get angry with the organization for being a bit sexist. Or do you think people (males and females alike) would rather ogle a female nekkid body than a male’s?

Check out the PETA main page for the ‘Rather Go Naked‘ campaign and to find out more about the organization here.

What do you think? About fur? About the campaign? Let me know!
