Buckle Up—Sexy Pilgrims Give It Away

Written by PETA | November 17, 2010

“Times have changed”—as Cole Porter informed us—”Since the Puritans got a shock/When they landed on Plymouth Rock.” So when PETA’s sexy pilgrims landed to rock Phoenix and Tampa for a pre-Thanksgiving Tofurky giveaway, only the most puritanical onlookers blushed at their hemlines. Instead, the focus was on scoring one of those tasty Tofurky roasts (the Phoenix crowd snapped up 40 of them in 10 minutes!) as well as on all the reasons to set a vegan table this holiday season.

To give you a taste of the action as these pilgrims progress to Las Vegas, Fort Myers, and other cities, here are some pictures from Phoenix and video footage from Tampa.

    Is promoting vegeterian eating not good enough on its own? Is it really necessary to resort to using women for T&A to do it? I do object to PETA’s objectification of women to achieve their objectives.

    Jackie, Orange, California is a college town.  Chapman University is 5 minutes away from the mall…you should see how some of the female students dress.   I don’t think Trader Joes would care as a lot of their customers attend Chapman. Also, as a biker who ministers at bike rallies, I have seen women willingly wearing nothing but body paint in public, participating in wet t-shirt contests and ripping off their tops during bike parades.  They are not protesting anything but they are perfectly willing to objectify themselves anyway.  As a Christian I cannot condone this but this is what goes on in the world, because the world teaches women that this is acceptable behavior.  That being said, the “Pilgrims” in the demo have their breasts covered and while the skirts are short, believe me, I have seen shorter skirts on biker women.  I would accept a Tofurky from them, and in return, offer to pray with them for compassion for animals and give them a Christian tract if they would accept it ( I have a wonderful booklet which asks what Jesus would think about modern factory farming and slaughter methods, including the “kosher” methods now used).

    Re: Jackie. While nudity is not necessary, we feel that all people should be free to use their bodies as political instruments to bring attention to animal suffering. We consider the public’s attention to be extremely important, and sometimes, controversial tactics–like naked marches or colorful ad campaigns–are the most effective ways to attract this attention.

    I don’t know if Trader Joe’s would be as open to PETA’s objectification of women as PETA is. I doubt parents would shop there, if they saw their sales were going to a company that sends the message to young girls, the only way to be heard is through being sexy. How about catching up to the 21st century PETA, and demonstrating women can be heard without having to display their bodies?

    But will they still put my meat in their mouths?

    I would LOVE to see more video from PETA’s campaigners.

    Please send some of these ladies to the Village Mall in Orange California. The Trader Joe’s there sells Tofurky, maybe PETA and Trader Joes can work together to generate publicity for both PETA and the store.

    I wish they would some to long beach! I LOVE Tofurky
