Can we just talk about this for a second?
A restaurant chain called Hardee’s recently released a string of advertisements that sexualize chicken breasts.
Let me repeat myself:
They’re advertising their food by sexualizing the breasts of chickens.
This ad features a chicken with censored breasts, suggesting that this body part is somehow lewd, indecent or arousing and needs to be covered up. And in this one, countless roosters run to Hardee’s in hopes of catching a glimpse of some hot, sexy, cooked (meaning, dead) chicken breasts. It’s like sexism, bestiality and necrophilia all wrapped into one.
But before you go thinking this is an isolated incident, just check out these ads for other products that sexualize human and nonhuman bodies:
And these are only a few examples.
You know…. There are so many anti-vegan feminists who trash vegans because PETA objectifies and sexualizes women in their campaigns. They cry, “I’d never go vegan because the animal rights movement is so sexist!!!”
Oh yeah? Well why haven’t these thoroughly sexist ad campaigns made you stop eating meat? I know why. Because you only boycott sexist companies when it’s convenient for you.
So either stop pretending PETA’s sexism is the reason you still eat meat, or go vegan.
