People in the coldest climates depend on fur to stay alive, and not allowing them to stay warm is just not reasonable. Would you, animal lovers, being kept from eating your salad because a crazy plant lover says it is cruel to kill them? What would you do if others were keeping you from feeding your children?
I don't wear animal fur but I definently believe people in cold climates need it I don't see why celebrities need it so much though. Most animals in for farms are tortured for their fur and even skinned alive in China all for fashion! People in cold climates need fur not celebrities and start killing the animals much more humanely.
People have worn fur for thousands of years, but for some reason, in the last 40 it has become unacceptable to some people. I think the real reason people are against fur, is because they can't afford it, and take out their anger on those who can. In some of the people who oppose it, they claim that we will hunt animals to extinction because of the need for fur, but most of the fur comes from farms. There are many regulations on fur farming, and animals can't be treated badly or else the pelt will be damaged and not be usable.
In closing it is not bad.
First, it is extremly warm. Second, it's very soft. Third, it is much mjch warmer and softer than faux furs. Fourth, you can use the rest of the animal its meat and many other different things. Fith, people who get the fur shouldn't be punished because it creates jobs and helps the economy. Also, they won't freeze to death because chances are very high that the animal will be killed, which is good because it wouldn't die a slow and horrible death, and we would get meat and other things.
As if killing them with pollution and habitat loss wasn't enough, celebrities sport the fur of dead animals without giving it a second thought. Why should they, when there are perfectly fine synthetic options available? It makes sense for people living in mountain cultures where the long standing custom has been to use fur, as well as the rest of the animal, to keep from freezing to death, but as a human whim for the purpose of fashion, it is ultimately unacceptable. Even if people don't understand, the day will come when the animals we slaughter for fur will all be extinct, and we will only have ourselves to blame.
There are enough animal predators out there. Why should we make it worst? Most of the time when humans take the animal skin, they just leave the rest of the parts there to rot. How cruel is that? If there is faux fur, why can't we use it. You can hardly tell the difference.
If people kill animals for food why does it matter that those people are killing them for clothes. People should realise that animal fur could keep a poor person warm because if they saw an animal they would kill it clean it and then rap it around them or their baby/child . What would you want people dying of frostbite in country's that can't afford any blankets
First of all, poaching is illegal( though it still goes on) and fur hunting is basically poaching which means that that is hypocritical. And also going along with that, this is sending out a wrong message that fashion is above our morals and values. And there are so many alternatives to fur such as synthetic and wool these can keep you just as warm. And this fur is a want not need. So this is what I think, please respond if you have a rebuttal.
People in cold climates should be able to wear fur coats to keep themselves warm. Real fur as a fashion though, shouldn't be allowed. Some people though need to wear fur so they don't get hypothermia outside! Also, in the meat industry it would be okay to make fur, as it would be wasteful to only use one part of the animal (some of the meat) instead of making as much use as possible for the animal's death.
While a lot of us would agree that wearing animal fur like chinchilla and mink is wasteful and inhumane, some animal pelts might be left over as a by product of the meat industry (like fleece, yak pelts, cow hide, and rabbit pelts). It seems wasteful to throw these products away, so it would make sense that in some cases, and some cultures, these by products can be used to make useful products, rather than being wasted.
First off, let me clarify a few things:
I do not mind fur in places where people legitimately need it and they can't get coats like we have. Secondly, I do not mind thrift store fur. After all, if you're buying something second hand you're truly not playing any part in the suffering of animals. You're just simply furthermore making use of it.
Otherwise however, fur is absolutely disgusting. And the worst part is that people who wear fur don't have an actual legitimate argument, they just have excuses. I don't have enough room to bring up ever single issue though, so I'll focus specifically on fur versus meat:
I'm a vegetarian, and one shallow argument these people like to make is that since a lot of people eat meat, they have no place to argue against fur. They're both terrible, but the main difference between the two is that choosing not to support factory farming takes a lot of will power and choices that will completely change how you live your life, meanwhile choosing not to support fur will call for very little changes.
How hungry are you for meat? Oh, all the time? Well, imagine cutting that out of your diet for the rest of your life. Already I'm sure it becomes quite clear how different the two are. I doubt that anyone who wears fur has a craving for it even 1/10th of what a meat eater has for meat. So, there. Already it's clear that choosing not to eat meat requires a lot more will power.
Enjoy your options!
Go ahead, go visit 10 random restaurants and tell me how many options you'd have left if you were to become a vegetarian. Yet again, I'm sure it becomes clear how much of a sacrifice choosing not to eat meat requires. Not only do you have to stop eating meat, but your options are also cut down to 1/4th of what they used to be. Fur? Hah, these people probably don't even lose even a measly 5% of their options, and these 5% measly options aren't over something like meat which they can crave.
Meat is everywhere!
It's unavoidable at every single corner and we are raised eating meat. Not only is it something that's hard to get out of, but it's also something that's practically enforced upon us when we're younger. Once again, I bring up the craving argument due to the promotion. Fur? It's not everywhere, so these people don't really have the entirety of society promoting them to do the worse thing.
Choosing not to eat living creatures is a gigantic sacrifice that completely changes your eating habits for the rest of your life, meanwhile choosing not to wear fur almost calls for absolutely no sacrifice. If these people want to wear a fur coat without harming any animals, then it's not like they have to completely give fur up; they can always just buy thrift fur.
Using any definition of the word should, no we should not wear fur.
But we can if we want to.
The problem arises in the fur industry, as any industry tends towards greed and waste.
A person should be able to wear fur if he wants to, but there shouldn't be any obligation, as that would be ridiculous.
Humans should stop wearing fur. For one, this type of clothing does not help the animals at all. This type of act is already cruelty. This fashion sense is just to support the crave of people for unique fashion. And since it is not a NEED then this is cruelty in its simplest form.
Let me start by saying I do NOT mean it is wrong for people who live in climates where they need it for clothing/warmth. But here in the U.S. And the like only use it for fashion. Killing animals for fashion is wrong.
I believe animals need more protection of their rights as they DO have them, and using them for the point of fashion is not right.
How many times have you heard of animal skin used as fashion? Thousands of animals are killed by people and sold to factories that make clothing and other items. A quote I got from a person (who doesn’t want to have their name showed) said “We shouldn’t kill animals for fur because first, You're killing animals, Second, You could just make fake fur, And third, Animals are being harmed by people and themselves! ”.
Animals are like us, Living creatures! Would you like it if someone took you or someone from your family and killed you or them? What if your walking around then get taken by an animal! ? Then get skinned and killed just to make a coat or some type of clothes, And make it cost in the thousands or millions! And because they cost so much that no one buys it? Think of animals like you, And how you would feel to be killed for clothing?
We just kill them for food food only food come on now we need the animals for the food chain or we all will die we kill 3, 000 animals per second 58 billion per year PER YEAR we just need the animals don't you think what if we were animals getting killed.
Not the best thing to do because you would not like animals killing you people need to find a way to scare them and not kill its hurting them and we should not be happy that we are killing.
I do not mind fur in places where people legitimately need it and they can't get coats like we have. Secondly, I do not mind thrift store fur. After all, If you're buying something second hand you're truly not playing any part in the suffering of animals. You're just simply furthermore making use of it.

When they kill animals for food, They kill them first before cuttihng them apart. For fur, They skin them alive and let them bleed to death. That's not right. Animals should not suffer because we need a new fashion trend. Foxes are especially victims of this crime. They are caught in traps. When their foot gets caught, They have three options: Chew their foot off, Wait for their captor to arrive and skin them alive, Or starve to death. None of which are fair to the creature.
Animals are skinned alive without any painkillers. They are roughly handled in the fur industry, they are gassed, poisoned, crammed into tight cages, being punched, stamped, hanged, beaten and bludgeoned. After skinned, they are still alive, breathing and blinking their eyes with their bloody body.... Can you imagine how much pain they're suffering? These unlucky animals live with fear, stress, disease, parasites and other physical and psychological hardships everyday. Many other materials can replace animal skin, they are also warm, comfy and fashionable. We shouldn't wear animal fur to save these innocent animals.
Why do you need to harm an animal just so you can use its fur for your own self? It is a disgrace! There is no need for thousands of animals to be killed for us. Why don't we just let the animals pass away like they should do !
We should stop animals from dying because of fur. People are using animal’s fur for clothing and accessories. Why can’t we just use fake fur instead of killing animals for real fur. We shouldn't kill animals for fur because first, you're killing animals, second, you could just make fake fur.
Fur should not be used for anything. Fur coats are wrong and just cruel! I know people use them to stay warm but there are other coats you can wear that give you the same benefits. One of the warmest coats don't even use real fur but imitation to give it style. The Mountain Parka is an example of this and doesn't cost a fortune. Well if it is expensive for you maybe you shouldn't be living out in the cold! Just please consider the animals feelings in this and this season find yourself a coat that doesn't use fur!
