I hate seeing animals killed to make fur for rich people.
But at the same time is it okay with some AF members?

I prefer no fur or at best, fake fur.

Some of you may think it's okay, please let us know why!

I think death for fashion is wrong. Why should animals have to die so you would have something to throw on your back? I don't think fur looks good anyways. After you see how the animals are killed for their furs, you'd probably wouldn't think it looks good either. If you MUST wear fur, why not wear fake ones? It's not like there's a big difference between fake and real fur anyways, cept for the fact that no animal had to die for it.

It's a disgrace to human picking on helpless animals by skinning them and wearing it around. How about the animals do that to them?

Just to further update y'all with info..

Animal rights is the belief animals should be given equal rights as humans.
I am not really wild about this idea as it's fairly extremist.
I think the media overdoes it by grouping anybody interested in the ethical and humane treatment of animals.

http://en.wikipedia..../Animal_welfare

Animal Welfare however concentrates more on the well-being of animals.

I'd really like to hear more of other people's ideas on it and their belief behind it.
No bashing allowed here.

as stated previously I'm against real fur, but I also happen to eat meat.
I guess I'm against the unnecessary killing of certain animals that we don't eat in the first place.

I have a sheepskin rug, but it was killed for food too so I don't find anything wrong with that.

I don't understand how people can be so damn cruel. Do they like it if they get skinned alive themselves??!! And I can't understand one thing. Why do they have to skin them alive? Sometimes I think the human race is a disgrace (and yes, I'm aware that I'm a human). We are killing just about everything on this planet.

I dont like real fur, the way they skin the animal are not right I once watched how people do it and it turned my stomach, the animals are not treated in a humane way. They lose their lives for some rich people to look good, I dont think they look good especially those still have the heads, limbs and tails still attached. We have clothes why do we still need animal's fur to keep us warm!

Don't kill me people but I'm for fur. I can't afford any fur yet, and is not planning to buy any fur. Aside from the skinning alive part which utterly disgusts me. I just think that I have a leather purse and that is the hide off some poor cow's back, and not too far back I've eaten a nice rack of piggy's ribs. I just don't see something really wrong, with killing a animal for fur or food. Yes we die without food and can live without fur. But I just like my down blanket that came from some poor dead goose.

Aside from the skinning alive part, I'm not that against people having fur. But I will strive to make myself a better person, and be a vegetarian in the future. Not likely but I will try.

Killing some poor fox for its fur isn't right, but neither is skinning a cow for leather jacket boots, jacket, purse, and of course filet mignon.. And I'm not about to give up the steak just yet.

Although I like and respect Animals they never will be on a par with human beings. Personally I don't wear fur. I'm against hunting a animal *just* for their fur.

I'm all for hunting if the whole animal is going to be used, not just their fur.

I voted no fur by btw

i just think it's really cruel to kill animals for their fur. it's not like we would die without wearing fur. so why do people keep wearing them?

and the issue with celebrities wearing and designing clothes with fur (ie J.Lo) really pisses off alot of people.

I prefer real fur that is hunted by a hunter in the woods. ( which is quite common where i live. )
The animals get hunted to keep their numbers under control.

I HATE fur from fur farms.

Fake fur looks and feels weird..

Why anyone would say this is beyond me.
How is the dog's live worth any more or any less then a pig?

Exactly, it's really an act of hypocrisy when someone says "I love animals" but eats pork or other stuff, wears leather and fur at the same time, as if cats and dogs were for loving and pigs/cows for eating. Animals are animals. I eat meat sometimes and wear leather stuff but at least have enough self-conscience not to claim to be an animal-lover at the same time. I used to be a vegatarian for a short time a few years ago and it's left me sensitive to such issues, even though I eat meat.
And so happens that despite having no problem doing those 2 things mentioned above, I'm strongly against real fur and wouldn't ever buy anything with it.

So you mean having pigs and feeding them taking care of them everyday is not the same as dogs and cats? Come on you must be kidding me? For all i know, take in a pig and live with it play with it, it will have the same effect as a dog. Posted Image Just my two cents of words Posted Image
