PETA has been trotting out naked ladies to try to drum up sympathy for their cause for years, and often it's pretty successful, if you consider drawing a few pervs with cameras and the occasional honk from a passing pick-up a success. But yesterday's "Fur-Out, Love-In" stunt on the 16th Street Mall fell a little flat judging by the photos shot by Aaron Thackeray, who has a real nose for nudity.
The photos are mildly unsafe for work, depending whether your employer has a problem with seeing a fraction of a protester's areola on your monitor.
