Let's make Peta history | Julie Bind

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), has done it again. Apparently never tiring of offending women with its horrifically misogynistic campaigns, it has now gone and upset British film-maker Victor Schonfeld over its use of footage from The Animals film, first released in 1982. Schonfeld, himself committed to animal rights, haslong criticised Peta's vile anti-women gimmickry and has taken serious offence at his film being exploited by them. Many decent people – men and women – do not wish to be associated with an organisation that depicts women as pieces of meat in order to challenge folk that treat animals as, er, pieces of meat. A Peta spokesperson claimed that Schonfeld has "an axe to grind". I sincerely hope he has. We need all the support we can get to put a stop to this dangerous promotion of women as stupid slags, sexy sluts and brainless bimbos.
