What Do You Think??

You probably heard by now that LL recently got floured by animal activists for wearing a fur shrug. When I was younger, I remember being horrified when my dad told me about people waiting outside of Saks in SF with red paint to douse any shoppers who walked out with fur. While I personally would never ever wear real fur, I totally disagree with people who take it upon themselves to ruin other people's prized possessions. I think you have the right to not wear fur yourself and you have the right to voice your opinions but you dont have the right to control what others wear or how they spend their money and you certainly dont have the right to destroy someone else's property. I know this is a very touchy topic but what do you guys think?? Do fur wearers deserve to have their fur pieces ruined??

messing up people's (expensive) stuff... not cool. they should just stick to their "i'd rather be naked than wear fur" campaigns.


i'd probably catfight the peta activist down to the concrete if they tried pulling that crap on me. hahaha

I don't agree with real fur, I love animals too much and the pain alot of animals go through for one coat to be made. Fur which is taken from an animal which has already died for natural reasons, I wouldn't mind wearing their fur.
I do believe everyone has a right to voice their opinions, but actually ruining someone's posessions I do believe is wrong. There are other ways to get messages across which may have stronger force

Why do you have the right to take another living creature's skin? Isn't that THEIR possession? Have you actually had the nerve to go online and see videos of the animals in fur farms? Just curious because I've found that people who are so adament about wearing fur don't have the guts to see what really happens to the animals. They want to whine and complain about "their rights and their property" but they don't want to know about the truth. They don't want to see it. Are you that kind of person?

Hi mep,

Like I mentioned in the post...I would NEVER PERSONALLY WEAR REAL FUR but I also wouldn't take it upon myself to destroy fur pieces owned by others...just not my style I guess :) And about watching the videos, I haven't seen them but thats because I dont need videos to affirm my belief that wearing real fur is wrong. Hope you have a pleasant day.

where do you guys think leather comes from?? oh...poor cows, goats, sheep, snakes, ostriches, and crocodiles. Fur is just another product...it ALL comes from somewhere...so stop wearing your leather shoes and animal by-products, and don't you dare eat meat or food that has come from an animal? Are you serious??? I wear fur, because I don't mind wearing leather products or eating meat...and I would never destroy anyone's possession over that! I wouldn't destroy a PETA activist's ugly burlap sack now would I?
