Last month when I disclosed my prejudice against vegan guys, hackles were raised in the comments section about the manly men who love poon as much as they love quinoa. Well today's NY Times "Thursday Styles" section profiles one Johnny Diablo, who has made a career out of combining poon and quinoa: he opened a strip-club-cum Vegan restaurant in Portland, Oregon, called Casa Diablo Gentlemen's Club, where the strippers wear pleather! Local feminists (of which there are many) have been less than pleased. One "feminazi" as Mr. Diablo calls them, "came in here once. I could tell she had an attitude right when she came in. She was all hostile." But Mr. Diablo's not the only one using the female form to sell an animal rights agenda — Pam Anderson has been posing in her skivvies for PETA for a while now, and in L.A. there's a Pussycat Dolls-ish group called Vegan Vixens — and many vegan activists are wondering whether it is contradictory to use women as meat when you're anti-using animals for meat.
