I remember Dateline on NBC sent a reporter to China to record the abuse of animals. It was the most horrendous thing I've ever seen. This poor german shephard was wagging  (at first)it's tail while someone began to skin it alive for the fur.

Can't watch the video, the descriptions were enough.  I can't even find the words to describe how sick this makes me.

Why is ok to wear mink fur but not cat fur? 

Why is it ok to eat cows but not dogs?

It is culture.  Ours is different than theirs.

I don't think it's right for American companies to be going to China to get fur for that cheap in order to sell it to people for hundreds of dollars, no.  There are standards established by American furriers as to the treatment of animals being killed for their fur, and companies that go around that bug me. 

Personally, I don't wear anything I don't eat.  I don't believe in killing something so I can look like a fur bearing animal.  There's nothing more ridiculous looking than some aging society lady wandering through Saks in a mink. 

Then again I'm not a woman, but still. 

This is why I buy a lot of my clothes on eBay.  Brand new A&F clothes sell for 1/10th the cost of retail.

i love jcrew and will still buy clothing from there regardless.  That being said, I don't wear any fur, but I'm not totally against furs of all kinds -- cat and dog furs sound sick though.

not surprising

no it isnt surprising.  no one said I was "ethical" in the liberal sense.

I don't think not wearing fur is a liberal thing.

Or not wearing dogs and cats.

Fur is ass-ugly, yo.  

How is fur any different than wearing leather?  BTW, I have several leather coats.

I have a leather coat.

My car has leater seats.

Because I eat cows.

But I don't wear things I don't eat.

And I don't believe that anything should be killed in a needlessly cruel manner.

Have you seen industrial farming techniques?
