Not comfortable about this at all. Sure, I hear women making quiet jokes about 'had a great night last night, can hardly walk today
' sort of thing, but the context is different. She's deliberately made to look a state so it looks like an abuse film before springing the suprise. Mostly I'm not happy with how it reflects on the vegan in the street (you and me) given that Peta have taken it on themselves to represent us, and that's what they do.
Advertising of any sort has two aims - to grab attention, and to get a point across. This seems to have the same symptom as most of Peta's, too much of 1 at the potential expense of 2.
[quote="beforewisdom"]I have problems with the unconscious attitude/conscious belief that *ANY*
vegan diet is superior for health, but I also have a problem with the idea that there isn't a vegan health argument. There is just a ton of information that there are many vegan food choices which have significant effects on human health. I only agree that the "argument from health" is too easily side stepped by varying conditions......but I think those arguments do exist.......and they have a lower barrier to entry than ethical arguments. Most people don't want strangers coming up to them and talking to them about their ethics.
