SuicideGirls Bare All in peta2′s Latest Anti-Fur Ads.

Written by PETA | February 19, 2008

Greetings from peta2!

Being the wild youth that we are over at peta2, since Jack is away we thought we’d take this opportunity to, well, bum rush the blog and tell you what’s going on in our neck of the woods. And there’s a lot.

Right now we’re in the midst of a SuicideGirls blitz. More than 40 nearly nude SuicideGirls—45 to be exact—stripped down to their tats and piercings to star in a series of provocative new “Ink, Not Mink” and “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” anti-fur ads for peta2. The SuicideGirls for those of you not in the know, are members of a 1,500-strong all-female online pin-up community.

The ads, which are a bit risqué for some of peta2′s younger visitors, are being released throughout the month on peta2′s MySpace page where you’ll be able to read blogs from some of the SuicideGirls who took part in the campaign.

We launched the super sexy ads at a big bash at The Roxy in LA on Valentine’s Night, where there was standing room only. Nicole, who has been tirelessly working on this campaign since October, had this to say about the party, “We were thrilled to see that so many people came out to party with peta2 and the SuicideGirls to support such a great cause! And the ads turned out beautifully!”

Check out some of the pix of the event.

    PETA SUICIDE GIRLS WHATS BETTER I ASK?..WELL NOTHING! ITS A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN BEAUTIFUL WOMEN AND A GREAT CAUSE

  • Maya, C.V.T. says:

    p.s. I wasn’t there but I’m positive that PETA employees would not ever litter!

  • Maya, C.V.T. says:

    Michele I am so psyched that someone chose to pick up the fliers. While it’s fairly easy for a PETA person to see the connection between factory farming and animal suffering it’s REALLY hard to always make the connection between a piece of paper on the ground and animal suffering. I don’t expect PETA to be an environmental group but the suffering expereinced by wildlife due to mundane things like washing dishes using paper towels driving cars littering etc is tragic and extreme. Bless you for seeing the connection!!

  • Michele says:

    To the person blaming PETA for the leaflets being thrown on the ground you are a clear example of someone who does not take responsibility for one’s own actions. Pathetic! I participated in a KFC demo and after I found a few discarded leaflets on the ground I picked them up. Even though SOMEONE ELSE was not taking responsibility for LITTERING I chose to ensure that SOMEONE ELSE’S actions did not contribute to pollution. Oh yeah and animals were NOT “put here” for humans to eat. Animals were on this earth hundreds of millions of years before humans came along!

    Mary You said “several posters” have agreed they dont understand the play on words. Well I just read all the posts and only the ONE from Larry says his 12 year old daughter didnt get it. You are back peddling Mary. Get over yourself and see the big picture. Mike Q Your awesome!

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    You As the name suggests recycled paper comes only from paper that has already been used for other purposes. And it can be recycled again. And no PETA did not litter. The pamphleteers did not throw their own material on the ground. It would be a good PR move for them though to pick up any discarded literature.

  • Jessica says:

    Why are people freaking out over the suicide girls posing for peta and aninmal rights?? I think its great that the girls and even holly are posing for the cause. Hollywood is full of actors and actresses that wear and love fur. Im sure it takes guts for them to step up and say no to it. If your here on the site to critisize why are you even on it? Just to nit pick every little thing. Get a life. Let us enjoy ours not eating meat. Or wearing fur. Sorry that we have hearts that care for animals and ot just for ourselves

  • Nancy says:

    Everyone who takes the time to read and comment on this blog does so because on some level even if they refuse to admit it they care. “You” I we all care. If we didn’t care if we didn’t realize that we humans heap far too much suffering on our fellow creatures if we didn’t feel called to change that fact we wouldn’t bother. We wouldn’t be here… reading writing getting fired up and firing back. So let’s not get caught up in fighting amongst ourselves. Don’t get me wrong… debate constructive criticism questioning assumptions including our own all good things. Insults condescension and an unwillingness to check oneself not so much. Because while we’re sitting here passing judgement on each other there are atrocities being perpetuated that we could be calling attention to reducing and maybe even eliminating altogether. While we’re busy putting each other down who’s standing up against cruelty and injustice?

    You A lot of people don’t want to be subjected to learning about slavery racism or the many people killed during WWII but unfortunately they have to. It is an effort to sensitize others to the sufferings of people of different ehnicitiesraces. That is why kids study history social studies in high schools. There will be those disinterested but more are reached and that is essential. It is imperative to feel empathy for others. Just as there arewere those opposed to readingseeinghearing about the Holocaust it is still being taught in high schools to kids. PETA is performing its mission to sensitize others to the sufferings of nonhuman animals. The oppression of animals needs to be told especially since it occurs daily. It’s all about education. No one can force you to take the pamphlet and certainly no one can force you to read it. But those that are throwing these pamplets on the ground are guilty of littering. As far as buying from 3rd world countries I make an effort not to buy from them. I would rather pay more for my clothing than buy from them. Try not to generalize animal advocates because you feel disdain and a lack of compassion for animals. BTW Pearl Jam is a group I love and they always have ar literature at their concerts.

  • You says:

    Recycled paper doesn’t come from the air.. it still comes from the trees.. And yes peta did litter.. If you want to get your message out put up a stand.. don’t just go around and force people to take your fliers.. Wait for people to come up and ask for the info.. Its not that hard.. I don’t want to go to a concert and look at mutilated animals.. people are there to have fun not have you tell us we are bad people for eatting meat or how much poop is in our food or milk. And the hag comments… come on.. I’m sure all the peta people are hot…. ok or not but its her right to dress how she wants. How many people on here wear stuff that was made in a 3rd world country.. but some poor little kid that makes 3 cents a hour.. but you don’t care about that.. your more worried about animals that are put here for us to eat.. and i’m not just here to get a rise out of you peta people i’m just here to try get another side to this.. thanx

  • Kris Shulfer says:

    Love the Ad!! They are gorgeous girls who rock what they have to the fullest extent!! Thanks girls!! Love you in Wisconsin

  • erica says:

    don’t go to this site if you aren’t here for compassion we don’t care about the “they’re here for that reason” in the bible it states be compassionate not slit thier necks. get it right better yet get of this site

  • Sarah says:

    I love that these animal lovers sport tattoos with ink tested on…animals! …i love it…

  • Larry says:

    I asked my 12yearold what she thought “Suicide Girls” meant and what she would think if she saw people called Suicide Girls promoting a cause such as antifur. She said that it sounds “angry depressed people who are upset with their lives” and what does that have to do with convincing anyone not to wear fur. She then said that maybe they want to kill themselves as a protest over fur and isn’t that silly because people would still wear fur and it would just be dying for no good reason. I of course explained to her that this group isn’t planning to kill themselves and that I only wanted to hear her reaction to their name.

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Hey You How much litter did PETA put on the ground? None. The people that threw the brochures away were the litterers. How many trees got chopped down? Did you check if it was recycled paper?

  • Alice says:

    I think its awesome that those women want to do something that brave for animals does it really matter what the name is? Also to the person saying that animals are only here for us to eat them are completely and utterly wrong I mean what exactly do we do thats good for the earth? Animals are exactly the same as us they feel have families and are just as valid as humans. If you don’t want to hear people talking about not eating meat then dont come on the site.

  • mary says:

    Key difference bt spice girls and suicide girls is promoting spice isn’t a problem. It’s an obvious play on words. But suicide isn’t an obvious play on words as several posters here have agreed. While a few of you who have heard of them before or who would never say that Peta has done something that isn’t perfect knew what the name meant it wasn’t obvious to everyone here who hadn’t heard of them before. Use another word to promote naked women and antifur. It’s not like I’m saying that you have to start wearing fur or put on clothes or tell young women to be more traditionally respectable. I’m just saying that use of the word suicide in connection with this isn’t wise or classy.

  • Jaimie J. says:

    I’m only 19 and I’m pretty sure I get the meaning behind this…and I think it’s great! PETA is an inspiration to young people like me! I think if more people re aware of what fast food resturaunts make up facilities and drug labs are up to when it comes to testing and making their products they might be a little more hesitant in aidning in their productions! Thumbs up PETA!!! Keep up the astounding work!!!

  • Anonymous says:

    There always has to be a negative comment huh?

  • Michele says:

    Mary I think you forgot the point of this campaign getting the message out about the cruelty of fur! by the way Mike good one about the Spice Girls!

  • kelly says:

    mary how thoughtless of you to think of this company’s name instead of their supporting something as wonderful as peta. but im sure you are perfect…so you have a right to make these sort of judgements.

  • Julia says:

    Haha! Mary just got owned! Anyways These beautiful women are admirable for all they do. Anything to attract attention to the horrors of animal skinned fashion is wonderful in my book!!!

  • Ana says:

    Mary Young people teenagers to young adults are a lot more aware of these things than you give them credit for. They won’t mistake the name or the message. Young people have an unique sophistication about these things. I applaud the efforts of the SuicideGirls!

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Mary I think you underestimate people. Most people will get itespecially young people. Are the Spice Girls made of spice?

  • Amber Falobas says:

    I love them 3

  • Adriano Valle says:

    You lovely sugar honey ballbabies are top! no suicide please!

  • Nancy says:

    Me too Mike. And it certainly takes guts to openly defy a culture of cruelty. Rock on SuicideGirls.

  • Judith, Freedom Fighter for Animals says:

    I just love everything about these lovely ladies.

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Mary The name originated from the novel “Survivor”it does not make light of suicide but rather indicates a person true to themselves even if that means committing “social suicide”. “SuicideGirls seemed like a good way to describe the girls who projected confidence and individualism whose staunch refusal to conform equated to social suicide.” Having the guts to be yourself seems like a good thing to me.

  • kelly says:

    Oh dears. The prudes have come out. You know the ones that haven’t done a single thing for animals but still feel the need to judge other women that are doing good and tell them what to do.

  • John Carmody says:

    They look fab wish we had them here in Ireland speaking up for Irish animals!!!!
