Oh Pamela... So Pam Anderson, spokesperson for PETA, is using her body to draw attention to her cause - i.e. ethical treatment of animals. And the city of Montreal isn't giving them a permit for their billboard.
I'm very ambivalent about this one.
On one hand, it's her body, she's used it for worse, she should be able to use it as she sees fit. On the other hand, the city of Montreal shouldn't be required to put up a billboard they find offensive and sexist.
Is it sexist? Absolutely. And so is a lot of other shit, I'm sure Montreal has no problems with. So is it a problem simply because the meat industry would shit a cow? What if she was selling lingerie? No problem then, I bet.
Censorship? Yeah, sure. But it's not like someone's coming to arrest her for her actions either. She's free to try elsewhere. OTOH, why should she have to?
In short, I dunno. I haven't made up my mind. Give me your thoughts.
