Twilight star Christian Serratos PETA ads feature the actress dressed in lingerie and face paint for Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The ad is benign compared to PETA’s other campaigns (we were more horrified when they called women’s public hair ugly), but it’s still selling vegetarianism with sex appeal. The primary slogan, “Respect Life: Go Vegetarian,” is pretty basic, but given that the ad looks like a Victoria’s Secret Halloween Special, it’s kind of hard to swallow. More
They say two wrongs don’t make a right, so PETA just does a million things wrong in their advertising in hopes that it will somehow benefit animal rights. One of their latest features the model/actress Joanna Krupa with a bunch of fake hair stuffed into her lace underwear, to remind you that wearing fur is disgusting. Just like having pubic hair. Get it? More
Sad news yesterday that the muscular hulk-like character we all remember from The Green Mile,Â Michael Clarke Duncan, died at the age of 54 from a heart attack. It’s especially shocking because just earlier this year he appeared in a PETA video saying that he was “a lot healthier” because he was a vegetarian. More
When I first brought up this story, one of the other writers here said: “I kind of love Alicia Silverstone. She just does her, you know?” That’s for sure. And right now, ‘doing her’ means writing a letter urging Russian President Vladimir Putin to allow Russian punk/feminist band Pussy Riot to be served vegan meals in jail. Oh, sweetie … More
This week, PETAÂ reached an all-time lowÂ by recommending thatÂ James Holmes, the accused Aurora theatre shooter, switch to a vegetarian diet to “stop the cruelty.” I…I’m just…Ugh.
The vegan non-profitÂ has never been shy about their sometimes-shady, often offensive tactics for drumming up free press and attention. Which is why I thought twice about even writing about this…but then I was soÂ disgustedÂ and offended, I had to. More
It was just a couple days ago that we talked about military wives stripping down to support a cause. I was so frustrated by their blatant use of sex to raise attention because I feel like their battle shouldn’t need it. They shouldn’t have to get naked for people to be aware of PTSD in the military.
Now, someone else is baring it all for their cause. No, we’re not back to PETA. This time it’s Jada Pinkett Smith. She’s getting nude in a music video to raise awareness about human trafficking. Once again, another important issue that shouldn’t need naked women to catch our attention. More
Here at Blisstree, we’ve talked a whole lot about a certain organization’s use of naked women to stir controversy and thereby raise awareness for a cause. To be fair, they’ve given us a lot to talk about.
Now, another organization is taking a page out of PETA’s playbook and using naked women to gain attention for their cause. But I have to admit, I find this example so much more depressing than PETA’s blatant attempts to get press. This time, the women stripping down are military wives and their doing so to raise awareness about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. More
The point of this post is to point out the ongoing weirdness that is PETA. In Toronto, lettuce-clad PETA temptressesÂ will take to city hall, where the mayor is for some reason participating in a public weigh-in. Yes, that’s weird. But weirder yet: It is only a blip in Lettuce Lady history. Ahem. More

8 Things You Shouldn't Do Before Bed
Kim Kardashian was on the “Today Show” this morning, talking about optimism and overcoming challenges and all those things celebrities talk about on morning talk shows, until host Ann Curry asked her The Flour-Bombing Incident. A few weeks ago, PETA member Christina ChoÂ shouted ‘fur hag’ andÂ doused Kardashian with flour on the red carpet outside her perfume launch. Kardashian told Curry she doesn’t understand how PETA can be against assaulting animals but not assaulting humans (with little apparent awareness about the severe differences between being covered in flour and being killed).

Easter isn’t always a lot of fun for the hens who supply all those eggs we love to hide. In fact, PETA reports that the egg industry is responsible for the suffering of 280 million chickens each year who endure a “nightmare” of a life that includes a large portion of their beaks being cut off with a burning-hot blade and no painkillers. Many of them are unable to eat, they say, because of the pain and end up dying from dehydration and weakened immune systems. The hens who do survive then share a tiny 18″ x 20″ cage with up to 11 other hens. Most are never let outside to move or span their wings. In addition, traditional Easter eggs made from real eggs or plastic create a lot of waste for our environment.
So this Easter, let’s take action and have a cruelty-free celebration. Here are five vegan and eco-friendly “egg” ideas: More
If all you know about People For Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is based on their ad campaigns, the organization may seem like a bad idea machine run by crazed, misogynistic vegans who’d rather throw a nude woman under a bus than eat Jello salad. But according to PETA’sÂ Lindsay Rajt, who’s the organization’s Associate Director of Campaigns, that’s okay with them–because every time someone’s angry about another offensive ad campaign, someone else is donating money to one of their less offensive ones.

Iowa recently approved a bill that has outraged a lot of animal rights activists. And rightly so. House File 589 just passed in the state’s legislature and has reached the governor’s desk. If signed, the measure would prevent people from photographing or filming a factory farm without the owner’s consent. Essentially, it would ban the undercover work that has previously exposed animal abuse on factory farms. And now, that exposure could be a crime. More
Ugh. PETAâ€”whose ads I am generally no fan ofâ€”has a new campaign about how going vegan will turn you into a porn star in bed. Some folks have complainedÂ that the “girlfriend” in PETA’s “Boyfriend Went Vegan” ad looks like a victim of domestic abuse or sexual violence.Â I’m just offended by how terrible PETA’s ad copy is.Â The organization continues to be an embarrassment to vegans, vegetarians and serious animal rights activists.
