Katherine Heigl really hates balls

Posted by Tom Megginson | 1-12-2011 00:03 | Category: Animal rights

Katherine Heigl really hates balls. And in case there’s any ambiguity: she means testicles.


The American actress released this video on Funny or Die, which is now an advertising medium thanks to Snooki’s recent campaign. It promotes ihateballs.com, which promotes spaying (and neutering) of pets.

From the site:

I Hate Balls is an edgy campaign targeted to raise awareness about spay/neuter, a simple and extremely effective means of stopping the killing of animals in shelters.
Nancy and Katherine Heigl, founders of the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation developed the I Hate Balls campaign to reach into all pet friendly hearts and homes with one surgically direct mission - fight the good fight against balls!
Since its inception, the Jason Heigl Foundation has taken the bull by the…well, balls. Funding spay/neuter programs has long been a passionate focus for the Foundation alongside the provision of financial support for rescue organizations that save pets from over-crowded shelters on a daily basis.

The video is absolutely hilarious. You can watch it after the break. (Flash only.)

And men… try not to cringe.

The sheer sadistic, misandric vileness of this ad is incredible. And YOU support this? Would you support an ad joking “I hate cunts”? With lots of gratuitous “jokes” about abusing a woman’s anatomy (not legal yet!) as a an anti-spay campaign? Seriously, wake the hell up. I have supported animal welfare campaigns for decades, and fostered hundreds of animals. Not any more. Not if animal welfare organizations have turned into vicious anti-male oreganizations.

I’m a man, too, and yet I don’t feel diminished by this at all, Doug. Perhaps that’s because sexual violence by women against men is not the same epidemic as the reverse. One thing about privilege is that its unassailable confidence provides an easy target for harmless satire. For most people, anyway.

BTW, if we are going to reverse the situation, the counterpart of testicles is not “cunts”. It’s ovaries.

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
