The Great Fur Conundrum
Rhiannon posted something thought-provoking and really got me thinking about pro/anti-fur arguments. I myself am anti-fur. Not even for animal rights reasons, either. I just think that wearing the obvious remains of a dead animal is creepy and far too ostentatious. I don’t even like the way fake fur looks! Now, with that being said I don’t mind leather, because it is visually less obvious to me that you are wearing a dead animal. Sometimes I feel like a hypocrite because I hate fur and like leather all while eating a primarily vegetarian diet (allowing for the rare sushi binge, that is). What are your opinions on wearing fur?
