Jim Morris @77 poses for PETA
Jim Morris, who recently turned 78, is a vegan bodybuilder. He's one of the most recent to pose nude for PETA. I believe this ad was just posted on PETA's website. Here's an accompanying interview.
I have a barrage of thoughts about this ad:
Does the fact that Morris had a successful bodybuilding career posing (almost) nude for decades make this ad primarily a continuation of his public life?
Is it cause for celebration that Morris and PETA are offering an almost-80 year old man as eye candy?
How does his nude pose differ from those of women--Taraji Henson, Nia Long, Angela Simmons, Wendy Williams--who have also posed nude for PETA? (And did Tia Mowry refuse to pose nude?)
Are there deeper meanings to this remix of Rodin's "The Thinker"?
What are your thoughts?
