mikofanclub Thanks for sharing this - what is interesting to me is that most people (even those who criticise vegetarianism) will actually say that FUR IS WRONG. Is this because they can't stand the thought of a 'cute' seal pup being clubbed (merely because it reminds them of a cute human baby??) or do they actually support animal liberation???



The Kardashian sister and all fur lovers around the world need to be subjected to the pivotal scene in "Earthlings" where the animal (a fox?) is stripped of its skin and sits there blinking alive and waiting to bleed to death. it is extreme and it is horrific. it is also very real. True horror. But as many people say "I can't watch that... its too extreme" while they happily go on parading DEATH around their shoulders...



It would be interesting to visit the earth in 500 years time to see if humans look back on the attitudes of today as barbaric and disgusting. Thankfully there are many people who are WAKING up to reality and this is the positive side.



Thanks again!

Kategreen The reason why they only go to PETA is for publicity, so people will think that they have a "cause" that they stand for. But not really. There are so many celebrities who claims that they are animal lovers but often times you can see them luxurious and expensive fur coats.

Good job Khloe...hopefully your sister gets a reality check very soon.



Yeah, I remember they showed the unveiling of her poster, and Kim said she "looked forward" to seeing the videos. Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I can't say I ever look forward to seeing an animal being tortured?



And yes, her fans don't come across as the brightest tools in the shed but she isn't famous for her intellect either so I guess that's the kind of fan base you attract, when you exist simply for being seen.



And I kinda like her arse. But I just find that kind of real hourglass figure aesthetically more pleasing than the current ideal. And she obviously keeps herself in good shape so even if she isn't teaching anyone compassion, she at least offers a different 'type' of beauty, even though she's still conventional.

I think leather is just as horrible, but at least people can plead a bit of ignorance about the leather thing with "oh, but at least it's just a bi-product of it's meat so it's not going to waste." Wheras fur is a blatant FU to the whole animal welfare movement, everyone knows how sick the industry is and her blog in particular was her saying I DON'T CARE. If she wrote the same thing about meat, I'd be just as pissed. Fur just is more loaded symbolically than leather, I think.



Sorry for a belated response, I thought this thread had died.

zombina I don't understand why PETA would take her endorsement. People who don't eat red meat for "moral" reasons make me laugh. Awesome, you just took cows out of your diet and replaced them with chicken and fish. Ask any kid over the age of 2 cows are bigger than chicken. So great, you just created a demand for even MORE animals to be slaughtered.

I'm critical of everyone's appearance, including my own, well especially my own

Damn today's society!

i agree, and her arse is just too damn big, what is this J-Ho all over again?
03-31-2009 08:40 PM
Mycoolcats people will justify anything as long as its not "illegal" , in that case, its Legal to wear fur so who the hell are you to tell them otherwise? I know it sucks, they think that its their god given right to do whatever they want legally and thats that.



If there was a law against the sale of furs... which there frekking should be, the entire public would have outrage if anyone was sought wearing it.

To me there is still a clear difference between wearing leather and wearing fur. Fur is clearly not necessary and everybody knows it and can't even debate it.



I also hate how people defend it with: you eat meat too don't you...



Those tactics are nothing more than straw man arguments. You can justify just about anything using that argument...including bull fighting and ****/dog fighting. And off course, if you say you are a veg...then you are an extremist.



I can use their argument too by the way: If a guy dumps oil into the sea, perhaps they can defend it by asking people if they drive cars. Because cars pollute the environment as well. So it must be right.



It's the same kind of screwy logic.



And from my experience...people who wear fur ussually don't give a damn about animal suffering. Especially younger people that wear. Those discussions are insane. And nothing you say seems to sink in.

Getting upset over every stupid person on the planet gets tiring after a while. I just learn to accept that there are stupid and evil people on this planet and that I can only change myself so to not be like those people.

ParrotGirl thats so dumb. I dont like this woman already, and I dont even know who she is.



Its one thing wearing leather that you already have, but fur gives out such a strong message. So many people are wearing fur now, its sick.



She looks like a chav with a lot of new money. Not a good look if you ask me. The fur is just her screaming - "look! Im really rich and sophisticated!"



and most of the commenting fans dont sound like the brightest sparks in the world
