The blog shows dozens of images of men posing alongside portraits, statues and sculptures.
In some cases, they’re imitating the stances shown in the artwork.
PETA’s associate director of campaigns Ashley Fruno went as far to suggest that when it comes to the world of dating apps, tigers should be treated in the same way as humans.
There would be major opposition if “someone was caged, dominated, and tied down or drugged before their photo was taken and uploaded online,” she said. Fruno went on to add an inappropriate sexual pun, writing “now is the perfect time to help protect pussies by banning the most selfish selfie of all.” If such a ban were to be imposed on Tinder – the world’s most popular dating app – it would mark a considerable move to clamp down on the freedom of users to personalise their profiles.
AS PART of one of their more bizarre campaign strategies, PETA has decided to branch out into the world of dating.
The organisation has recently decided to offer dating advice to those in pursuit of being swiped right – a vote of approval by a prospective partner – on the online dating app Tinder.
There is in fact an entire blog dedicated to ‘Tinder Guys with Tigers’, a site "documenting the absurdly large number of dudes who have taken a picture with a tiger and are attempting to use said picture to woo women on the internet". For those of you not familiar with Tinder, you are the lucky ones; it is a dating service app which acts as an Argos catalogue of cleavage, six packs and selfies.
I’m still deeply in mourning for the loss of the catalogue so I use it here tentatively in this analogy.
I guess it was that I was doing a lot of research and writing about art, so I was naturally inclined to figure out what certain pieces were." But she adds that on a personal level, it’s a “document of [her] experience as a single woman bored with the ways in which this technology is presented.
Or as Before you go posting that picture from your recent trip to the city zoo, you should know that some users begrudgingly admit that the lure of the wildcat isn’t working as well as it used to.
But take heart, Tigers of Tinder: When you meet the broad-minded world citizens who make up the Humanitarians of Tinder, you can swipe right with confidence — they’re probably into it.
With news last week that the New York State Assembly had passed a legislation prohibiting the infamous “tiger-selfie”, internet daters throughout Britain and the world were sent into hairball-induced panic about the aesthetic future of their dating profiles.
For some unknown reason, it has become rife amongst the male internet dater to believe that by presenting himself up close and personal with a big cat (customarily of the stripy variety) it will vastly increase his sex appeal and desirability to other singletons. In the wise words of a much beloved and well known tiger, how on earth will potential lovers sense that you are GRRRRRREAT if you are sans tiger-selfie?
In a letter, the animal rights group called on Tinder’s co-founder Sean Rad to ban the use of tiger selfies on the dating platform.
