Real people wear Real Fur


!لا والله
What if I don't have my own human fur?
ok let's assume I had fur (lol)
I'm a disgusting furry clump
hair all over my body
would it really work as insulation during these freezing days?

ma albes Fur?


Awalan

wearing something natural is more flattering as opposed to disastrous synthetic articles of clothing


Thaniyan

fur is natural, durable, sustainable, sumptuous, warm and feels so soft (taboni amshi wat7akak?)


Thalithan

faux fur is not biodegradable
it's an ecological disaster with a huge carbon footprint
so basically it harms the environment (HA HA!)
we as a human race have alienated ourselves from nature it's ridiculous!
our world has become so fake and artificial
plastic and factitious objects have replaced the genuine and natural ones
as for myself, I'm that sort of a person who likes to be in touch with nature
therefore I wear real fur :)

o yitha7kni lama yigoloon
"would you wear dead animals"

huh!

ma your shoes are dead animals

your cotton shirts are dead plants
you eat dead animals
o your ancestors wouldn't have survived the ice-age if it wasn't for fur
and you wouldn't even be here arguing with me
FUR saved the human race!!!! :)

anyone who says otherwise would be a hypocrite
(or someone who desperately wants real fur but can't afford it)

o ba3dain fur farms take really good care of their animals
at the end they're going to die anyway
let them die with dignity ya akhi! lol
"Most claims that the animals are treated and killed cruelly by the fur industry have been proven to be fabrications. If you buy your fur coat from a reputable furrier, you will have the peace of mind to know that the animals have been treated humanely"

I'm against animal cruelty
but not all fur is obtained this way!!
that's a total misconception


conclusion

it's a personal choice
It is absolutely within your rights to decide
but don't be judgmental
by trying to impose your ideals on us
if you don't like fur, don't wear it!

simple

and as long as it's legal
ahooooooo 3a6ooni ilfourrure khantidaffa..










case closed :)

Hi.

I was blog-surfing and happened to stumble across this blog and I felt compelled to write a comment because, frankly, I don't think you've done your research on fur very well. I would like to share some history:

A huge part of the Native American lifestyle was to hunt buffalo. Not just for food, but also for their fur, bones, and pretty much everything. "No part of the buffalo was wasted. The meat could be dried and preserved for future use. The horns would be used as decoration on ceremonial clothes or weapons; the hides could be used as blankets or as part of the tepee if they had been waterproofed."

"The Native People knew that their survival depended on the buffalo and if they took advantage of this creature, they would pay for that greed themselves. Therefore, the buffalo was hunted but honoured by the Plains Native People."

The concept of "waste" didn't exist. And neither did the concept of "excess." That's why the buffalo's population was never harmed by the Native American's hunting of them. They lived in balance. In other words, it was a sustainable relationship.

On the other hand, the fur trade operates by providing farms where animals are pretty much bred so they can be killed to make coats. One argument is to ask, do animals have rights? If they do, shouldn't they have the right to live a natural existence in their natural environment, the same way the buffalo did, rather than be confined to (in some cases) cages in farms, where their lives are ended abruptly and unnaturally without even giving them a chance to struggle for survival? At least the buffalo had a fighting chance in the wild.

Another argument, is why? Why do we need to wear fur? The answer is, we don't NEED to.
Your arguments are basically: 1) wearing something natural is more flattering as opposed to disastrous synthetic articles of clothing, 2) fur is natural, durable, sustainable, sumptuous, warm and feels so soft, 3) faux fur is not biodegradable, 4) I'm that sort of a person who likes to be in touch with nature therefore I wear real fur.

What I summize from your arguments, are basically that you like to wear fur because it aesthetically looks good. Your arguments about "disasterous synethetic material," and "biodegradablity" do not hold up because there are plenty of materials that are just as efficient as fur yet contrary to your beliefs do not harm the environment. Off the top of my head, I can think of wool and cotton as being two. Google "biodegradable winter clothing" and you will stumble across plenty of sites.

You also state that:
"your shoes are dead animals
your cotton shirts are dead plantsyou eat dead animalso your ancestors wouldn't have survived the ice-age if it wasn't for furand you wouldn't even be here arguing with meFUR saved the human race"

Contrary to what you think, the difference between modern people and, as you put it, "ice-age" people, is that those people wore fur out of necessity. They did not have the means available to them to clothe themselves in anything BUT fur. Also, considering the environment they lived in at the time, it made more efficient for them to wear fur... presently, the earth is reaching a state of environmental imbalance. entire species become extinct each and every day. The "ice-age" people didn't have to worry about that. We, on the other hand, do. Every time we kill an animal we wreak havoc with that balance.

Eating dead animals is a whole other argument I'm not going to get into because it is besides the point, and so is wearing cotton. As for wearing shoes made of animals, I wear converse. I believe the same argument about wearing fur applies to wearing leather.

In conclusion: your argument that you like to wear fur because it's soft and looks good is weak. However, I agree that it is a matter of personal choice, just don't try to sell it as something else when it isn't :)

Sorry for the long post, hope maybe you gained something of value from it. Cheers.
