PETA’s latest sexism: “Be Proud of your Body Scan: Go Vegan”


Only PETA can try to profit off of the invasive TSA screenings by pushing objectifying and body image bullshit with their latest ad. Thankfully, it was rejected by several major airports this past holiday weekend:

The ads from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals features a scan of a curvaceous woman in lacy underwear with the message: “Be Proud of Your Body Scan: Go Vegan.”

Major airports in Las Vegas, Charlotte, N.C., and New York City refused to display the ads designed to entice holiday travelers waiting in security lines.

Officials with McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas say its policy prohibits political ads.

PETA Vice President Dan Matthews says the ads were meant to be humorous. He says PETA hasn’t taken a political position on airport security measures.

As they say for all their campaigns. Call me a humorless feminist, but fat-shaming, blatant racism and sexism isn’t much of a laughing matter.
