If it’s a PETA campaign, you can bet it’s going to be pretty insane. The extreme animal rights group’s latest video just might be the winner, at least until they manage to top it with something else.
The spot starts off on a sympathetic note, with various women talking about their feelings after presumably having been raped, but then comes the twist, and oh what a twist it was. Turns out, the women are actually speaking about something like “you, only different.”
Turns out, they were actually talking about that steak you had last night.
You know, because the “forcible artificial insemination” of … cows … is actually pretty much like a man assaulting and raping a woman.
Just … wow …
No mother should have to go through any of this. pic.twitter.com/DjbWQcFTX3

Needless to say, Twitter wasn’t pleased.
no survivor of sexual assault should have to go through their trauma being compared to an animal's when we've already been dehumanized

this is seriously SO disgusting. How dare you dehumanize victims of sexual abuse to promote your own cultural ideas

.@peta wow, considering how hard we have to argue that HUMAN WOMEN don't deserve rape, this is not only dehumanizing but sadly ineffective

Idk @peta, who exactly signed off on comparing victims of sexual abuse to animals & dehumanising them? I'd love to know.

Hey @peta my trauma isn't fodder for your campaigns. You should be ashamed. Really.

I couldn't unfollow you fast enough, this was so triggering as a sexual assault survivor. I don't eat meat and I don't support you.

Instead of apologizing and pulling the ad, PETA is doubling down. Check out this response to the first tweet above:
Sexual abuse is a serious issue. Acknowledging it for animals doesn't take away from humans. https://t.co/hZXwEdJTOd
