I don't belive in killing animals for their fur! Yes, you may say "Don't you eat meat?" "Animals die for the meat your eat!" Well, I do eat meat, but, meat, is a good cause, Native Americans lived on meat, and berries, but, when they would eat meat, they would have a Religious Ceremony, for the animal.

People, who are poor, may kill a fish, which is meat, to survive! On the other hand, Animal fur, is alot of money, if people are in need of something warm, don't get animal fur, get a jacket! Animal fur, I belive, would not be a good cause, for our world. Same thing with leather.

That is my opinion on Animal fur.

Besides, you can buy fake fur which is just as warm! As for meat, a h*ll of a lot more animals get killed for 1 fur coat than for 1 steak.

I don't have a problem with leather. The cattle are killed for meat and the skins are used for leather, it would be wasteful not to use the skins. Native Americans used everything that came from their kills and wasted nothing.

I dislike modern hunters who only want a mount for their walls. I hunt but my boyfriend and I eat the kills and save the skins to give to the local tribal craftsmen.

I have a jacket that has fake fur, and it stinks. As in the smell. *gags* Worse, it's not the kind that can be washed, so I have to deal. I really don't like animal furs too much. I agree with both Miranda_ and Kimber on this one.



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

I love my winter coat with the fake blue fox fur hood I like cuddling in it and feeling warm.


I'm not a fan of real fur coats though, mainly because of all the stories I've heard about how they treat the animals. Plus I was heavily influenced by Disney growing up. **coughcough101dalmationscough** Although the character Cruella DeVil just rocked. lol I'm a big fan of evil

An animal killed only for their fur is wrong. If you use every part of the animal, and the animal is not in danger of extinction, then its fine to me. But who really is going to eat tiger meat? Its never going to be a popular thing. Leather is ok, because it would just go to waste otherwise, other than that its wrong...and kinda gross if you ask me....

I personally think that killing an animal for their fur is wrong. It makes many animals become extint or put on the endangered lists. I also don't like Faux fur because its still fur. I don't have anything fur related or anything.


Being single doesn't make you weak, it means that you are strong enough to be on your own; Being alone could be a good thing, because there is no drama involved in your life, no pain, and free to do what ever you want. Life is too short to be chasing those who aren't even worth fighting for, you are worth more than that.

I don't agree with killing animals just for their fur. leather I'm ok with, because it comes from a cow that is being used. But really, who eats chinchillas and zebras?

I'm a horseback rider, so I have no way of not using leather. I would love to just be able to use synthetic material...but it's not possible. I can at least get a little comfort in knowing that my leather comes from an animal that is being used for its meat as well.


I would rather be scolded for doing what is right than praised for doing what is wrong.

I really hate it because I have had a chinchilla, the fur is so soft and nice to cuddle but the thought of killing him and skinning him for a nice pair of gloves makes me sick!! and even any other animals,but yes leather is okay if you are using the meat for food too

Actually, there are plenty of synthetic saddles and such available, you just have to know where to look.






I dont wear fur or own anything with any leater in it, and im also a vegan.
