This video, narrated by Tim Gunn, is disturbing and will make you feel queasy, but it is something that everyone should see, whether they are for or against fur.
For those of us, myself included, who are so obsessed with fashion, there is often a huge disconnect between what happens at the factory and the final product we gush over. The ethical argument is obvious, but the personal argument is where it gets tricky. For businesses and individuals that need fur, I guess you gotta do what you gotta do... but at what and who's cost? I can understand if it's a matter of survival, but when it comes to down to wanting to wear fur for aesthetic purposes, ick, I don't understand.
To my readers and the passerbys that wear fur, I think no less of you, nor will I preach to you why you shouldn't wear fur. If you want a reason to wear fur, read this article by AA Gill.
Thoughts? Reactions? Rants? I wanna hear it!
