B. I've never helped anyone who is starving in my life. (I gave Ben money for some food once, I think. But I made him pay me back.)
So here we go. The main point: she wore a dress made of meat. Look at the picture.
What a carry-on... or should I say "carrion". No. No you should not. If you do, I will poke you with a stick. (Comment from Metro)
I'm a huge PETA supporter & I totally understand Lady GaGa's statement!(Really? You don't see any clash between the ideals of People for the Ethical treatment of Animals, who have strongly protested the act [and all animal products] and a woman wearing a dress made of meat? (Comment from MTV)
It's not awesome or offensive(there was a poll), just disgusting. Whatever happened to women having class and self-respect (They're not forced to have those, you know. They have the freedom not to be classy. [or self-respecting. That's more of a problem. But still...] Also, how does she not have self-respect? Wearing dead meat isn't disrespectful to herself is she chooses to wear it. Just stupid.)? This is just gross. True. But you can't force class on her. (Comment from Huffington Post)And, from the Lady of the hour:
"Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian (Bet it is. They don't think animals should be killed for meat. You're wearing meat). As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the earth, (Well, I'll take your word for it)" Gaga replied. "However, it has many interpretations (What does? Your dress? I copied this quote then forgot the context. That's really my own fault though), but for me this evening ... if we don't stand up for what we believe in and if we don't fight for our rights to wear the innards of dead animals, pretty soon we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our own bones (By extension, I think our meat has a lot of rights - the same we have as individuals. Does she want autonomy for flesh and brain? Does her skin want to see other people?). And I am not a piece of meat, (Only in a technical sense. But not any more than anyone else. Except in this case, where you are literally covered in pieces of meat)" (Gaga herself, quote retrieved from MTV)To wrap up, a heartwarming comment-tale from someone called LLNYRN at the Huffington Post:
About 20 years ago, the Portland Oregon radio station I volunteered for had its annual Halloween Party Fundraiser in which one guy came dressed as a slab of meat. Wore real meat that was dripping blood all over the place. Dude was escorted out after complaints from other patrons. I didn't attend that one. But people couldn't stop talking about it for days.
