(and sometimes leather and ivory) but say almost nothing about silk?

Oh, and some of those celebrities (supermodel types) wear silk, too.

Is it because sable and mink and cows and elephants are warm and cuddly, and silkworms are ...just worms?

As one of the SAS guys in "Bravo Two Zero" says: it's fucking outrageous.

Yes i agree, i belive that killing seals should be OUTLAWED, yes OUTLAWED everywere on the planet. People who do it are sick and repulsive. We live in a world were hunting is not needed but is needed to eat. As far as killing silkworms it is cruel but no were near cruel as killing a mammal... it is still very cruel and horrible because it is life... For those people who kill a seal i think should be jailed... infact i would love to laugh at them when they were living hell in a cell...

But the silkworm's aren't being killed to make silk garments. Silk worms produce the silk, life goes on.

For fur, ivory et al, an animal is being killed or deformed in some way to obtain the desired product. That's the major difference.

I honestly DO think that killing animals like that is wrong, but I don't see the problem if the animals were to be bred specifically for that purpose. The way I see it, if someone breeds an animal SPECIFICALLY for its fur (maybe meat at the same time too), why not?

i think it's ok to use the fur if ur using the meat as well (or in the case of beef the cows hide) but if ur just killing animals in a cruel way to wear them and then not using the other parts to eat or supply ppl then i don't see the point just wear faux fur...plus it's cheaper

Not exactly. Silkworm produces cocoon around him, inside which it goes to sleep as a pupa before metamorphing into the butterfly.
You cannot take the silk without destroing the pupa. :)

My dog chased my rabbit and the rabbit broke its leg.

So then it was a three legged rabbit which died about 6 or 7 years ago
