What the hell, PETA?
Look, we get it: animal rights are important. I’m all for treating animals with respect and dignity, but it’s really hard to root for you guys when you can’t get your point across without acting like a bunch of overly horny teenagers.
In the new ad for going vegan, PETA hired a group of men to whip around their produce-as-metaphorical-penises to show that going vegan increases your stamina. Apparently, the argument is that the fat and cholesterol in meat inhibits the flow of blood to your junk. Just putting this out there, but you do realize that a) your cholesterol can be influenced by factors other than your diet, such as familial hypercholesterolemia, a genetic condition, and b) omnivores can maintain low cholesterol and good health by eating in moderation and exercising regularly?
All I’m saying is, if you want to go vegan? Fantastic, go right ahead. What you put in your body is your choice and yours alone. Just don’t try and justify it using correlational data and sensationalist fuckery like this.
