Naked Women Invade the Loop!

Holly Kersten and Lauren Quillo stumping for PETA in the Loop.
Nothing says animal rights like a couple of naked chicks standing on a street corner, right? Two St. Louis lovelies bared arms, legs and backsides for PETA in the Delmar Loop yesterday, hoping to educate passersby on the benefits of a vegan diet. Lauren Quillo and Holly Kersten submitted their slender limbs to be marked like cuts of meat, demonstrating that all meat is murder.

Virginia Fort, an international campaigner for the pro-creature outfit, says that the demonstration is one of a few that she organizes: "We're here simply to raise awareness that we're all made of the same flesh, blood and bone. We all have the capacity to feel pain, and have fear of pain and whether its a cow, a pig, a chicken, a cat, a dog or a human. We're simply asking people to make the compassionate choice the next time they're at the dinner table."


Quillo, a student at Mizzou, says that working as a PETA activist has helped influence her peers' opinions about the health implications of a carnivorous diet. "We're socialized to believe it's normal and good and healthy to eat meat, but it isn't," says Quillo, her slight figure a testament to her year and a half as a full-fledged vegan. She says that their tactic has shown itself to be effective: People seem willing to learn more about the vegan lifestyle.

They'd rather go naked than eat meat -- aren't you lucky?
"We do demonstrations against all types of animal injustice, whether it be the meat industry, the dairy industry, animals used for entertainment, clothing, things like that," says Fort, who has been a vegan for four years.

Today, Fort will be in Indianapolis with these local spokesmodels, and then it's onto Milwaukee, where they'll exhibit their "meat tray" demo -- naked women are covered in fake blood and made to lie in Saran-wrapped trays like so much ground chuck at the supermarket.

"I have more energy, I feel lighter. I've lost a little weight just from not eating meat," Fort says of her diet. "It's really never been easier; even in the four years I've been vegan I've been seeing an increase in vegan products on the market."

Bystanders are often "really receptive" to their pro-vegan message, she adds, though the response is probably less about health and more about the free pass to gawp at pretty young things. (Didn't our headline get your attention?)

These stupid girls don't even know their cuts of meat.   They labeled the flank and skirt steaks as loins.   

Try and cook those like a loin and it's going to be like chewing on leather (or raw hide).

These girls aren't ready anyway.  Let them be vegans for a while, corn finishing will put some nice fat marbling in their meat.

The comments below are proof enough that PETA's nudity campaigns make jackasses of both women and vegans.  I'm downgrading from vegan to vegetarian right now.  I don't want to be associated with sick crap like this.

The writing on these girls was put there by a cannibal, not a vegan.

Another example of peta Exploiting women to get their message across wonderful. In response to the person who posted above who cares if chimps eat meat or not I'm not a chimp. and when isn't a human exchanging beliefs with another human? didn't you do just that when you put your post up on here? SIGH just another example of a human being a hippocrate when they don't even acknowledge it. Nobody "imposed" or forced you to do anything, not to read this or to post on this. Choosing to be a vegan or vegetarian is choosing not to take part in a corporate system that is evil, in humane, and unkind to their workers among many other reasons. It shouldn't be about objectifying women or didn't hitler eat blah blah blah blah!

Another wacky bunch of humans trying to impose their beliefs on others. Even chimps eat meat. But, because vegans don't buy meat products, it helps keeps the price of meat down for us meat eaters. Thank you, Vegans. Wasn't Adolf Hitler a Vegan?

I saw an outrageous act of animal injustice in Tower Grove Park of all places. A hawk was eating a squirrel it had killed. Amazing an animal could trample over the rights of another animal like that. I thought we as a planet had moved past the idea that some creatures must eat other creatures to survive. I, as a human, would never consider eating another organism to survive.

I'm guessing that people would be really receptive to anything they would say. The Jehovah Witnesses should take a page frome PETAs playbook.

PETA should institute a resident vegan program where vegans travel around the country and live with people interested in adopting the lifestyle for 3-months.  I don't even know where to start, but I'm interested.  I just can't cook and the thought of eating nothing but fruits and salads only doesn't seem doable to me.

PETA sucks. Even if you're hot, you're still retarded.

Okay honestly this looks like they are working for the meat industry. I mean they just make it look so good. :) 

And why do I never see stuff like this when I'm out. I have to read about it.
