Today I was in our little city shopping some christmas presents... Yeah, I know it's late, but hey.
The thing is, I DO NOT understand todays "fashion" if that's what you call it. FUR.
What the **** is wrong with people ? How the heck do they have the conscience to walk around with dead animals on themselves ?!
I mean... full coats of fur, which probably mean about ten dead foxes.

If I EVER was in one way forced to wear fur... I would just walk around naked instead. That would feel more comfortable.

Your opinion on fur ? Discuss.
#2
wearing fur isn't great, but there are far worse things in this world.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

PETA members are crazy, my sister(in PETA) almost attacked me after I asked about mashed ****ing potatoes and she went off on a rant about eating animals and putting animal life above human life. I'm still hungry...

I've got no problem with it myself, don't wear it though. People have been wearing animal skins since the start of the human species.
#17
vegetable rights and peeaace.

but anyway, killing animals to eat is just sort of nature (being omnivores and stuff) but mass-hunting animals that we dont eat (like minks etc.) just so we can skin them and wear them is a bit dodgy since we have so many means of making fibres that dont involve killing animals.

i'm not flaming any body. but people are so lucky to actually be given the choice (if they want to wear fur or not) but most of the people against animal fur wouldn't say know to a big thick mink fur if they were about to freeze to death -_-
#19
Who cares about dead animals? Its called life! You dont think those ten foxes havent killed 100 animals each? You think that if they were cold and could they would to refuse wear our skin? I will eat any animal and i will use its remains for whatever amuses me. Besides, if we didnt do stuff like that and litter and pollute and the like we wouldnt be very good at our jobs as cancer of the earth.
#20
Seems to me that there was a time when the ONLY thing people had tow ear was animal fur/skin. I don't have a problem with wearing fur or eating animals, i have a problem with animal cruelty.
#21
if PETA was there at the dawn of men. Humankind would have frozen to death. Be happy to be alive, shoot some deer, wear some furs common.

but thats what i mean.

killing animals to eat is fine, do whatya like with the left overs.

but killing animals that have no use as food (and little use as much else) just so we can make fur coats is a little frustrating because we can make synthetic fur coats pretty easily.

People wore the fur to keep alive. You could kill anyone you want who is threatening your life.

back in the days people never encountered people of other origins cause you'd have to walk 1000s of miles. and by the time they were there, evolution made sure they all looked alike.

You may only hunt another man if he threatens your territory, takes your spouse or endangers your offspring.

That would be like wearing fur in the summer. Its ok to wear the fur if youre freezing. Its ok to kill a man trying to kill you.
#34
this was a dumb thread idea anyway

we're never gonna all agree on this. the majority of people have no opinion on killing animals for fur.

But the dilemma is necessity over fashion.

I wouldn't want to wear fur just because it looks nice. Now, if it was the only thing available during a cold winter, then yes, i'd wear it out of necessity.

I'll admit i wear some leather, which is only a bypass of the meat industry. Animals used to create leather are being used efficiently for several different purposes with the major one being food. Animals hunted for their fur... well that's it.

So now tell me, isn't killing an animal for just ONE part of their body not sound like animal cruelty? Particularly even more when we have other means of clothing ourselves?

I think wearing fur is pretty disgusting, but I hate PETA and animal rights dickheads more than I hate people who wear fur.

well done

It's an industry and it's a way of life for people. I don't see what the big deal is so long as the animals in question aren't half clubbed to death and just lay there bleeding.

i think you'll run into that issue with just about everything. I'm more concerned about the pollutants cars release than i am about a couple minks being killed for their fur.

yeah, leather comes from the cows we eat

when we skin animals for fur we leave their bodies in a pile someplace most of the time.
