Ink, not Mink!

In many parts of the world—including ours—fur is “alive” and well.

PETA has a well-earned reputation for getting famous women undressed, and using said ads in viral campaigns on the ‘net, magazines, etc. Their latest campaign (which seems to have been around for awhile, I just hadn’t noticed it), “Ink not Mink,” however, appears to be overwhelmingly male. Feminists will likely applaud this more even-handed campaign, and ladies and our gay brothers will appreciate staring at this campaign, instead of being stared at.

Be comfortable in your own skin, let animals keep theirs!
