    Please don't make posts like this; you come across as ignorant. If you think she's a murderer because she wears fur (highly illogical comment to make, but there we go), then please argue the case for it, instead of throwing around accusations without proof.
    It was just a joke lol, have you seen op's username? They're a troll, although I definitely don't agree with wearing fur

    Troll or not, you should still back up any accusation through reasoned discussion, by using evidence.

    But actually, I haven't seen them post anything that's particularly disagreeable. All they've done is state that they wear fur, which is hardly murder.

    Eskimos have nothing but the body/furs of animals to eat, and keep themselves warm. I fail to see how this is "selfish indulgence" and/or "luxury".

    Sure, but pointing to extreme examples of living doesnt negate that fur and meat are nothing but selfish luxuries for most of the world.

    You wouldnt point to examples of self defence as justification to going around smacking everyone in the face.

    I'm just pointing out how ludicrous it is for anti-fur campaigners to spout all this BS about the killing of animals for fur being "evil" and "inhumane", when it clearly helps other humans in less privileged parts of the world.

    If you don't want to wear fur, then fine, but don't force that ideology on the rest of us when you can't even defend it properly.

    You might have a point if they were campaigning against the use of fur by isolated or extreme communities, but they arent.

    No, I'm talking about the killing of animals for fur as an umbrella term. If you look at the killing of animals on the whole, from every single case of it occurring around the world, then it's quite obvious that it's not an evil act at all (when you look at the facts), and the anti-fur campaigners are only saying this to simply push their own blinkered agenda. It's pathetic, really, but also very closed-minded and oppressive at the same time.

    For your argument that killing animals for fur in the first world to stand up, you'd have to assume that none of us are educated enough to know about animal conservation and welfare.

    So...with the cold weather we have been having I decided to wear my fox scarf today. I felt warm and toasty and was worth the money I paid for it.
    But as I was out and about more and more people were giving me dirty looks. Some crazy person shouted I was a heartless *****.
    Honestly I am totally against anti-fur protesters. Every time I see one, I just want to buy another fur article. They just piss me off so much. Do they not know that no matter how many "shocking" images they show, they can't change someone's opinion.
    Unfortunately I can only buy fur when I go to Finland, Russia and Poland however I am happy to know that some countries still practice fur farming.

    And just to let all of you know:
    I have 2 fur hats (both rabbit), 2 fox scarves, assorted mink scarves, a reindeer skin, an African Antelope skin, and a fox and rabbit fur coat...
    Come on, not foxes. They've had enough hunting as it is.

    Well, I'm sure rural, countryside dwellers have had enough of being terrorised by them; this is why it's done.

    You keep saying that you don't care... but the fact that those people calling you heartless ***** made you open this thread just to say that you don't care, means that subconsciously you do indeed care. Otherwise, you would have completly ignored it and this thread wouldn't even exist. That is the true meaning of I don't care.
