Fur - Yes, No, Maybe, I don't know
I think it's hilarious that any fur clothing has to have a specification that the animal used was killed humanely. I understand that we have sad humans who do not care about animals and skin them alive - yuk! But when did it become a sin to wear fur? People cannot wear fur freely without being criticized by animal lovers. Would it change anything if I mentioned that my fur coat was made by an animal that was already dead? I don't own fur coats by the way because I think most fur coats are pricey and look ugly. Anyway, I'm just saying that people should not be attacked for making the choice to spend their money in buying ugly fur coats if they want. Winter is not nice to the body and I hear some people buy fur coats for comfort, not for looks. Well some may buy it to show that they are well to do but shouldn't we let them be? What we should do here is educate those extracting fur to find alternative ways to do it without hurting the animals. Wearing fur shouldn't be made a bad thing because it really isn't.
