Protest against animal killing in PETA shelters features nude men

On the 15th of July, over 100 people had planned to protest at PETA’s office over the wholesale “euthanasia” of animals in their shelters. PETA closed their office and used personal information from Facebook to scare off most of the protesters. In response, those who did show up went to PETA’s U Street intern house as well as the office-one of them totally nude except for an “I’d rather go naked than support PETA” sign.

Two activists stripped down to shorts at PETA’s office. The nudity was meant to lampoon PETA’s habit of using sexuality to advertise their agenda. PETA has been accused of “treating women like pieces of meat” for always featuring slim young women in their trademark “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” protests.

In those protests, PETA claims to be an animal rights group and promotes veganism. This while PETA is killing their own clients by the thousands in PETA-owned and operated animal shelters.

With the utter hypocrisy at PETA, it was deemed appropriate to lampoon and invert PETA’s trademark protest, with men instead of young celebrity women stripping down.
