I'm just going to leave it at that.<BR/><BR/>However, the misconception that PETA doesn't use nude men in their ads is complete bullshit, and 30 seconds of Google research would prove it.

It makes me want to blow my (vegan) brains out for not looking remotely like that. (I mean, my God, at 120 pounds I'm a fucking ugly-ass whale next to her.) But then again, PETA doesn't really give two craps about animals -- it's all about them.<BR/><BR/>And JLPRO, get bent and go fuck yourself.

(Correct me if I'm wrong) So how is posting a young, naked woman going to get the message across to them? It might make things worse, if anything.<BR/>A naked man....now that might work!niahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/15475910401200498514noreply@blogger.com
