In early days men hunted for food and clothing and used the skins and furs of animals to clothe themselves and survive the elements. Today most people wear either synthetic or natural fibers, but very rarely the skins or fur of animals. This is a trend that has been restricted to the heartless upper socio economic classes and celebrities who just don't give a damn, people who on average actually make cave men look pretty sophisticated and caring by comparison.
PETA are the leading anti fur spokespeople, having quite a problem with the fact that most animals used in fur products these days are confined for life in tiny cages and then heartlessly anally electrocuted. That's if they're lucky of course, sometimes they are actually skinned whilst still alive, and anyone whose ever scraped some skin off in an accident can only imagine what that might feel like if it was being done to their entire body.
Jennifer loves her fur, and has been the object of PETA's ire for some time as she insists on being completely unrepentant about it. She even features fur products in her own fashion line. Pretty heartless when you consider reports such as the following:
Undercover Investigators from Swiss Animals Protection East/International spent the past year investigating fur farms in China’s Hebei Province and found that many animals, including dogs and foxes, are still alive and struggling desperately when workers flip them onto their backs or hang them up by their legs or tails to skin them. When workers on these farms begin to cut the skin and fur from an animal’s leg, the free limbs kick and writhe. Workers stomp on the necks and heads of animals who, fighting for their lives, struggle too hard to allow for a clean cut. When the fur is finally peeled off over the animals’ heads, their naked, bloody bodies are thrown onto a pile of those who have gone before them. Some are still alive, breathing in ragged gasps and blinking slowly. Some of the animals’ hearts are still beating five to 10 minutes after they are skinned. One investigator recorded a skinned raccoon dog on the heap of carcasses who had enough strength to lift his bloodied head and stare into the camera, with only his eyelashes still intact. "
Kate Moss wears fur, but she also smokes crack and has become engaged to Pete Doherty, so her judgment is pretty much permanently impaired. It is also debatable as to whether she actually suffers more through constant starvation and the effects of class A drugs than perhaps the animals who suffer a few miserable months of life. If so, then I would postulate that she perhaps deserves to.
Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan
These three are indisputably total fashion airheads who will wear anything that shows off their T&A, so it is hardly surprising that they too wear fur. I would write more, but really I think it's a case of nuff said here.
