When researching one subject, I keep coming across something else I want to mention.
A couple of years back, Sisley had an advertisement campaign that featured a model getting friendly with a pig:
In the blog g.o.r.i.l.l.a./livingfromlove, based in Brussels, the author asks the question:
"For example if you are one of countless Muslims who live near this advertisement in central Brussels, how do you handle its challenge to your cultural preferences?"
Figure that pigs are actually very nice animals, and that the religious ban on eating pork could actually have more to do with them being too human-like to be eaten than them being "filthy" (as the only reason why they might be 'filthy' is that humans keep them in filthy conditions)?
Well, a corporation like Sisley might not be the best advocate for that kind of revolution of the mind, but a girl can dream, can't she ...?
