To answer your questions on your first post, Yoga originated in India, as part of their spiritual practices for millennia. What is often practiced as Yoga in the West is far removed from the original practices in India, and often doesn't include the spiritual and religious contexts, and these inaccurate versions may be sexualized too. It's frustrating that everything has to be sexualized in order to sell, but there are still people who will teach Yoga accurately.

I've seen some of those ads, and they were disturbing. PETA is the most visible and vocal group of vegans and animal rights activists (or they claim to be, but I can't understand how they claim to be, while believing in euthanizing stray pets instead of finding good homes for them), but I know that they don't speak for everyone in either group, nor should be seen as representative. Do a lot of people still not know that, and have you had to explain that to a lot of people?

It's good to see PETA being called out for the phonies they are, especially from other vegetarians/vegans. If they're getting flak from fellow vegetarians/vegans, one knows something's wrong with that group. One can't agree on everything, but that doesn't justify violence or threats toward those whose views are different, like what PETA did with those who used animals for food or other things. It sick and insane that there are people who take them seriously.

Yea :/ In some countries they use something called TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trap-neuter-return

People are quick to call the police if they see any dog walk alone outside. If a dog walks around outside, that would be a strange thing which would make people to call the police..

People promoting Tai Chi and Yoga should promote them on the basis of their merits instead of sexualizing them to appeal to people.

TNR is a humane alternative to poisoning or euthanizing strays and ferals, and is more effective at reducing overpopulation. Where widespread killing of stray and feral cats happened, other cats moved into the area and overpopulated it, which further reduced the quality of life for all of them.

You'd want to look for an organization that promotes the well-being of ferals, and help strays get adopted.

Aren't some forms of Yoga involved with the Chakras somehow? There's one Chakra (Svadhishthana) that supposedly stands, amongst other things, for sexuality, as in, sexuality being good, and sexual activity being healthy for this Chakra. I think it's a misinterpretation, but whatever.

Anyway, as for everything else, sex sells, so no wonder they "sexualize" it by having people dress in things that activates weak people's sexual pattern recognition. I don't see it as sexual though, simply as pitiable, since I understand the intentions behind it, which don't affect me one way or the other, so I don't care. I don't see these intentions as a good thing though, if that means anything.
