This week Peta launches a new anti-fur campaign, which seems to mostly revolve around spitting out a lot of venom at the Olsen twins – or "the Trollsen Twins" as Peta have "hilariously" dubbed them. There’s a Trollsen Twins website, Trollsen Twins merchandise, a Trollsen Twins video, and the opportunity to dress up "Hairy Kate" and "Trashley".
Now, I don’t wear fur, and I agree with the sentiments behind Peta’s work. That said, as much as I don’t like fur, I don’t much like Peta either, or the childish, bullying way they go about trying to put their opinions across, and I can’t help thinking they could educate people much more effectively without all the venom and nastiness, which just serves to distract us from their real message. What does everyone else think: do you think this campaign is just a little bit OTT, or do you feel that the shock value is what’s needed here?
