PETA is well known for objectifying women in their efforts to encourage us to be kind to animals. Here are some print ads using (near) nudity:
In these two, they actually make women into animals in cages:
Wearing sexy yellow bikinis outside the legislative meeting of the United Egg Producers in Washington on Wednesday, six PETA beauties will crowd into three cramped cages to mimic conditions for laying hens on factory farms. The ladies will hold egg-shaped signs that read, ‘Chicks Suffer for Eggs.’
In case you were wondering if they were denigrating women as well as showing them naked and in cages… Here you go:
Because women’s natural bodies are actually quite disgusting, apparently.
NEW: Matt S. sent in three more PETA posters and a video featuring Alicia Silverstone:

I like these kinds of things because they bring up two issues: Why don’t people just contribute $20 (or, in most cases, something like 10 cents) directly instead of filtering it through a corporation? And should we have to personally get something out of it in order to contribute to worthy causes?
