PETA Strikes Again
PETA is up to its old tricks again, in a protest against the Ringling Brothers circus in Houma, Louisiana. A female PETA activist was painted in orange and sat in a cage on a busy street corner wearing only a bra and underwear. The orange paint was supposed to represent the caged tigers that are often featured in Ringling Bros. circus shows.
While I understand the importance of promoting the cruelty of animals in circuses, I can’t help but wonder if PETA is incapable of demonstrating in a way that isn’t sexist or objectifying women. From their track record so far, it doesn’t look good.
