i understand that some people name feel "innocent" because they wear fur but do not know the cruelty involved in skinning an animal alive. i also understand bullshit when i hear it, and that is bullshit.
any adult of below average intelligence or higher, understands what skin is and what purpose it serves. No adult of below average intelligence can expect 1- an animal to live without its skin, 2- an animal raised and killed only for its skin to be a happy and well treated animal, 3- the skinning of a recently dead animal to be a pleasant experience, and/or 4- the skinning of a living animal to be anything short of sicking cruelty.
no, adults who wear fur are not "informed", instead it is a deliberate and personal choice to refused to 1- know what really happens and/or 2- CARE what really happens. in my book willfully ignorance about this level of inhumane abuse, while willfully FINANCIALLY SUPPORTING IT (that is paying for animal furs), is not something deserves any level of leniency. indeed these self gratifying circles of ignorance are just as vile as the act of skinning animal alive.</long-winded rant>
in short: people who wear fur and claim to not know, don't want to know because they are selfish little shits, and care more about (tacky, heartless) fashion than actually giving half a fuck, and i think they are just as bad as if they skinned the animals alive themselves.
"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox
