PETA is a detestable, wacko organization, but I love those who protest for PETA by going fur-less. Is there a better way to protest?
Herewith, for your viewing pleasure are 13 images of protesters who have bared it all in their effort to convince you to stop wearing fur, eating meat or fish (see PETA video here), and torturing animals. Click on images for larger view (Some may be NSFW)

Alicia Silverstone to Appear Nude in PETA Commercial
The 30-year-old actress, who appeared in movies such as "Clueless" and "Batman & Robin," shot the ad to promote vegetarianism in the spot sponsored by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
In the 30-second ad, which will air about two dozen times in Houston on Wednesday, Silverstone is shown emerging from a swimming pool and talking about the benefits of being a vegetarian. She obscures the view of her body with her arms as she gets out of the pool.
Pamela Anderson sparked a media frenzy in London last night as she disrobed in the window of Stella McCartney's Mayfair boutique.

PETA Just Loves Naked Women
The actress and fashion designer Sadie Frost is the latest celebrity to strip completely naked for a PETA ad.
A convinced vegetarian, the former wife of Hollywood's sweetheart Jude Law, posed butt naked for the campaign against the use of animal fur for clothing items.
'I don't use fur in my collections. It's disgusting and it reminds me of death and blood. Besides, animal cruelty is always out of fashion', Sadie said right after the photo shoot was finished.
You might see Playboy model Holly Madison, star of The Girls Next Door, wearing bunny ears, but one thing you’ll never see her in is bunny fur—or any animal’s fur, for that matter. Hugh Hefner’s number one honey bunny—who shares both Hef and his home, the Playboy Mansion, with fellow Girls Next Door stars Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson in the popular E! channel reality show—is so passionate about saving animals killed for their fur that the blond bombshell bared her bunny tail alongside the tagline "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur."

Ad Campaign Targets PETA for Killing Over 14,000 More Animals than Michael Vick
Today the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) ran a full-page ad in the New York Times highlighting the hypocrisy of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). peta’s campaign against NFL quarterback Michael Vick is disingenuous given that PETA itself has killed over 14,000 more animals than the NFL star.
As much as I am opposed to cruelty to animals, I am much in favor of animal testing for drug products. I appreciate the efforts that have been made to lessen the pain and suffering of animals in laboratories, however a complete ban on such testing would only lead to humans suffering and dying and in great numbers.
I am opposed to animals suffering in order to be processed as food for us, but there are methods to minimize that suffering. If you want to be a vegan, by all means knock yourself out, but don't interfere with my rights. When chickens have the same rights as humans, I will stop going to KFC.
Advertise all you want against the wearing of fur, but don't terrorize those who do. Try to educate people on your position, but using Islamic terror tactics to intimidate those you disagree with is un-American.
And by the way, I happen to think that plants feel pain. They enjoy the warmth of a nice, sunny day and lean toward the brightess, so spare me that you can never contemplate eating anything that might feel pain. I never eat chickens while they are stll alive, but I have seen you vegans rip apart a living head of lettuce and bite into its still living flesh. Have you thought about that? And if science were to prove that plants feel pain, what would you eat then? Let me tell you what you would say, "Sorry plant, but I'm hungry."
