Keeley Hazell: Don’t Wear Fur (PETA, NSFW)

Via on Nov 18, 2009

Keeley Hazell, for PETA: “I like to support designers who are able to create fashionable and popular clothes without getting blood on their hands.”

Why say no to fur? After all, it’s comfortable, warm, soft, and a longheld symbol of affluence.

Oh, yeah, now we remember:

Fur items come from animals, including rabbits, foxes, minks, and chinchillas, who spend their short, miserable lives in cramped, filthy cages until they are slaughtered, or they are trapped and beaten to death in the wild. Fur farmers and trappers often use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gassing, bludgeoning, drowning, and poisoning. Many animals are still alive and able to feel pain when workers begin to rip the skin off their bodies…

    Fur is a an elitist status symbol, much like diamonds and flashy cars. People who need these things to draw attention to themselves are no different than the annoying child in the middle of the cocktail party who keeps saying "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!!!" It's sickening that so many people never get over this, no matter how much attention they get. Ironically, the models in this article are no different.
    When fashion designers get serious about creating fashion from recycled materials instead of ultimately ADDING to world waste, I will give my thumbs up.

    I have never worn nor will I ever wear fur. However, I have leather boots, shoes and handbags that I purchased during a , shall I say, less enlightened time in my life which I still wear. So I don't really feel right about joining PETA. I admire their stance and agree that animals need should be eaten or worn for adornment, but the wreckage of my past…
