New York “A year after PETA marked the end of the fur industry by ending the“ I’d rather go naked than wearing fur ”campaign and announcing their plan to focus on all other animal-based materials, the group returns for New York Fashion Week. – this time virtually and with a hint of Cynthia Nixon’s venomous manly video “Be a Lady They Said”.
PETA (a women-led organization) issues “They said be a sweater“- A video showing the fashion industry’s efforts to normalize mutilation, maiming and killing of animals for sweaters, bags and shoes, and voices messages sent to victims:” Do us good. Make us rich. Make us look sexy. … You have no feelings. You have no rights. You have no choice “.
“A sheep is not a sweater, but a woman is an object of sex,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange, host of the video. “PETA’s video challenges the old, misconception that sensitive sheep, cows and goats are ours, which we can torture and kill at will just because they are different from us.”
PETA and its subsidiaries have produced dozens of videos showing workers beating, kicking and maiming delicate sheep for wool; leave sensitive goats with bloody gaping wounds during operations with mohair and cashmere; burn, electrocute, beat and slaughter cows on the skin; rip off the feathers of ducks and geese by handfuls; boil a silkworm alive to get silk; and make alpacas spit and vomit in horror from a rough haircut.
PETA also launched an international campaign calling for hypocrisy and support for animal cruelty by Urban Outfitters, Inc. brands, including Anthropologie, Free People and Urban Outfitters, and urging them to stop selling animal products without being stingy. serving a progressive and sustainable agenda.
PETA’s motto, in particular, is that “the animals are not ours.” For more information please visit PETA.org or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram…
