Sexiest European Vegetarian Sophie Shows All Animals Have the Same Parts

Defying chilly January temperatures by stripping down to nothing but panties and paint markings that mimic a butcher’s diagram of body parts, our Sexiest Vegetarian winner, Sophie Barrett, marked World Week for the Abolition of Meat by standing behind a poster that read, “All Animals Have the Same Parts: Abolish Meat”.

Sexiest European Vegetarian Sophie Barrett Body Parts

Animals are more than walking entrées. They are made of flesh, blood and bone, just as humans are. They have the same bodily organs, the same five senses and the same emotions, ranging from joy and contentment to depression and fear.

“Animals aren’t ‘breasts’ or ‘thighs’ or ‘flanks’”, says Sophie. “Animals think, feel and want to live, just as you and I do. By exposing my body, I hope to expose others to the benefits of a meat-free, cruelty-free diet. World Week for the Abolition of Meat is the perfect time to make the switch!”

Join Sophie in ditching meat by going vegan today!

    For starters, i’d like to point out that I am not in favour of animal cruelty. So I take a dim view of battery farming and the like. But banning meat? Everyone is entitled to make their own choice when it comes to what they put inside their body. But banning meat seems a bit extreme!
    If meat is banned, we’ll have no need to keep Cows, Pigs and Sheep. So they will all die out, save for a few that might be kept in a Zoo (they won’t survive in the wild). Yes I know ending the life of any other living thing isn’t the most pleasant of subjects. But its been the way of things since year dot. With our humanity and developed minds, the animals we eat should be looked after, live stress free lives and killed in a way that doesn’t distress them.
    Ban meat and you’ll have many animals thin in numbers to the point of extinction.

    I can’t help but feel Peta’s time would be better spent concentrating on cruelties such as the battery farming I mentioned above, and fur.

      Seriously wake up dude! Where do you think WOOL come from? Where do you think fx MILK, BUTTER, and CHEESE come from? Pigs are considered pets amongst lots of peple so trust me they will never die out. Never and that is actually the dumbest comment I have ever seen before. By the way banning meat is the kindest thing to do for all people living in the “rich” countries, because we have the opportunities to eat anything else and make room for animal kindness..

      I’m sick of this argument..

      If the only life for a cow, sheep, pig, [insert X animal here] is to be milked to exhaustion, beaten, kicked, abused, have their children stolen from them, then slaughtered so that someone can have a fleeting taste sensation on their tongue, then I’d happily get rid of all of those animals tomorrow..

      A life in misery is no life at all

      Oh and FYI, PETA does a shed load of work towards battery farming and fur..

      killed in a way that does not distress them hahahahahahhaah surely you know that is ridiculous. since the year dot we have a digestive system designed for a plant based diet ,

    I’ve been a vegan for just over two weeks and I won’t ever be going back. Sophie is showing how inhumane our species is when we see an animal we think about them as a tasty meal instead of a fellow animal that should be treated with repect. We do not need to eat meat to survive, we have a choice that no other specie’s has we can survive on a plant diet, other species can’t they have to feed on other animals because they have no choice. So our species has no right to murder animals or enslave animals for our food products, the sooner people wake up to this fact the better all our lives will be, both human animals and non human animals.

    In reply to Chris:

    I think campaigning does not infringe on people’s ability to make choices. It’s good to see alternatives. However, with a ever increasing pop of 7 billion people, meat is not sustainable. The amount of crops and feed needed to raise one cow to adulthood, could be used to feed many more families, and far more environmentally friendlier too. Fish are disappearing from our seas, meat is being artificially boosted with hormones and drugs that have knock-on effects to our health (i.e. drug resistant TB, once thought beaten), and the fact is, our biology was never meant to sustain on high amounts of meat – as more and more research is proving. We need to return to a balanced diet, where meat is a very infrequent choice – not the 3 x day regulation.

    If you stick a pin in a living creature – such as a man , a fish or a cow — it hurts
    SO don’t do it…stop inflicting cruelty on other living beings. I’m veggi vegan nearly 30 years, & not only does my body feel good, but my soul feels great too.
    try it, love your food and remove the cruelty out of your life. cheers johnxx

    Banning Meat? would you tell a Lion or a shark not to eat meat because its cruel? its life. Humans have evolved to eat meat. Fact. No more arguing against that, Its been conclusively proven that we as early hominids made the diet change to meat, to which our systems have adapted to. Even further than that, Meat was crucial to human evolution, the enzymes in cooked meat helped are brains grow larger, giving rise to cognitive thought, which is what allows you empathise with animals, ironic huh?. Other clues give it away namely;
    Our short digestive tract, synonymous with predators, scavangers, anything evolved to eat meat.
    Just The one stomach (and a small one at that)
    Whether people like it or not, biology speaks for itself, we are omnivores, accept it and move on. that doesn’t mean i agree with current animal welfare or slaughtering practices, nor that you should eat it all the time. it just means that to say give up meat altogether is frankly a naive and misguided view. one which I heartily advise against as a evolutionary biologist…

    • avatar anonymous says:

      I couldn’t agree with you more. In some ways PETA activists are like religious extremists. Throw some science mixed with logic in their faces and they have nothing more to say.
      Any normal person should be against animal cruelty. However, that same person must also be against banning meat.

      Hey dinosaur, I think you need to check your facts.

      You have (and so had I) been taught to think this: humans eat meat, drink cow’s milk to get calcium etc.. However if you do a bit of research you’ll come to see the reality about this, example:

      The stomach (that you mentionned) is NOT the same as a carnivorous animal, who has a short digestive tract to eliminate rotting flesh. We have the same sized stomachs as those of herbivors (compary to our body size).

      Our teeth, are those of a herbivore. YES we have canines, so do herbivores, they’re there to eat up on hard food. The movement our jaw makes is a left-to-right grinding one, not an up-down chomp like dogs etc..

      All animal products that enter our body bring in acidity, we need alkaline

      We don’t have claws, if we were meat eaters, you’d be able to run after a deer, chomp it down and eat it fresh!

      Just take a look at this page, it’s a short comparison, and here’s also a speech that will go in-depth about the body construction. As an evolutionary biologist, you shouldn’t miss out on this.

      Hey Dinosaur… you really need to go back to school and well learn a few things about our anatomy for starters… Our ‘short’ digestive tract… !? WRONG pal, it’s just the opposite..

      There are so many things I could mention, some of them have been already, but if you read this Dino, let me know, and I will take it from the top down… and I promise you for every argument you have that humans were meant to consume meat I will give you 3 arguments that say we are not…
      For example, don’t you find it kind a weird that it’s not lions or alligators running this planet… after all they have eaten meat for millions of years before us… I wonder why their brain hasn’t ignited yet…
      The claim also just doesn’t make a lot of sense. The primary fuel for our brains is glucose, which is a form of carbohydrate. And meat is completely, 100% devoid of carbohydrate. So we’re supposed to believe that the thing that fueled our brain development is a food that our brains can’t even use?

      Carnivorous and most omnivore animals are aroused by the scent of blood and the thrill of the chase. Most humans, on the other hand, are revolted by the sight of raw flesh and cannot tolerate hearing the screams of animals being ripped apart and killed. The bloody reality of eating animals is innately repulsive to us, more proof that we were not designed to eat meat.

      Ask yourself: When you see dead animals on the side of the road, are you tempted to stop for a snack?

      Does the sight of a dead bird make you salivate? Do you daydream about killing cows with your bare hands and eating them raw? If you answered “no” to all of these questions, congratulations–you’re a normal human herbivore–like it or not.

    • avatar robert says:

      Fact is that we have NOT evolved to eat meat, ours is a LONG digestive tract where did you get the FACTS that it is short digestive tract ? it is NOT TRUE

    Stop being so insulting to each other. Please try to have a grown up, respectful discussion.

    There’s a very strong point about meat fuelling humanity’s evolutionary rise, but on the flipside, other meat eaters haven’t evolved like we have. Which logically suggests that there are other factors involved in why we are so advanced. But that isn’t a reason to disregard meat as one of those factors, and an important one.

    Because we are so advanced we can now fuel ourselves with alternate diets that provide just the same nutritional content (and even tasty flavour) as meat. We’re not limiting ourselves by going vegan.

    However, meat is damn good, that’s a simple subjective point that many people will support. And it’s no good telling people that they shouldn’t like something like meat. What’s more is that because we are so advanced we can simply use our scientific knowledge to develop lab-grown meat, eliminating the need for animal slaughter altogether, and removing humanity from nature by one more step. Preventing us from interfering with it artificially.

    I can’t wait for the day when I can chow down on a healthy artificial fillet steak and know that it hasn’t come from a domesticated, inbred, possibly mistreated cow.

    Also I wouldn’t go near a site called ‘celestialhealing.net’ unless you paid me. That just reeks of unfounded superstition and opinion.

    Are you all freakin’ insane? I mean I realise that PETA is known for it’s ultra-moderate stance on all things animal and demanding enforced conformity is a natural progression for any self respecting fascist organisation… but seriously at least use vaguely applicable information to back up your totalitarian views.

    There are some serious retards in this thread:

    “…omnivore animals are aroused by the scent of blood and the thrill of the chase” – Ah yes, I’m always nervous going near a raven or a sloth or a squirrel with a cut finger. They can be so bloodthirsty.

    “Sophie is showing how inhumane our species is when we see an animal we think about them as a tasty meal instead of a fellow animal that should be treated with repect[sic]” – Yeah that’s how evolution works, it’s all about respect. We got to this position in the big ol’ tree of life by respecting the animals and environment around us… oh no wait, we did it by dominating our environment.

    “If you stick a pin in a living creature – such as a man , a fish or a cow — it hurts SO don’t do it…stop inflicting cruelty on other living beings” – I’d just like to point out here that CRUELTY is enjoying the pain or distress of others. I don’t enjoy hurting cows, but I do like eating them, that doesn’t make me cruel it makes me normal. Pretending that eating meat is cruel is emotional blackmail, which is, you guessed it, being cruel.

    well im a vegatarian i feel not a crazy woman either logical…. its true you carnt stop anyone eating meat its apersonal choice…. there should be lots more care for animals that are providing humans with so called food,, get cameras into slaughterhouses this is my issue the cruelty animals receive no compassion no kindness just used and abused for meat… if you do choose to eat meat plz make sure its been outdoor kept and at least had a normalish life before its death…

  10. avatar WA says:

    Hopefully more humans will choose to go vegan, if given a choice. Anyway, animals(especially those dangerous animals that have fangs and claws) and humans are not meant to live together. If humans can let animals lead their own animal life without interference and let animals take care of their own animal kingdom, and humans can get on with our human life without animals, we humans will definitely have a better quality of life without animals.

  11. avatar WA says:

    And another thing, we humans who are against all types of cruelty should not be afraid of those humans who are unkindly pushing meat on us just because they unkindly tried to prevent us humans the freedom NOT to eat meat.
    I think those humans who chose to eat meat for whatever reason or reasons should respect us humans who wish to avoid all types of meat, whenever possible.
    I think everyone should have a choice and it will be great that in the near future, everyone will go vegan.
