No, 2 wrongs don't make a right
Did this happen to you? I honestly only seen this sort of thing in movies and on tv.
so you saw it on the news then? I thought Peta stopped condoning that years ago. Not that I am a Peta fan or anything.
Latest climate predictions I've seen suggest that the UK could get considerably colder in a few years time. I'm betting the people with fur coats are going to feel very smug if that happens. Not to mention the ones with 4x4s...
PAINT THROWERS probably get frustrated-( I AM NOT CONDONING THIS ACTION- just explaining their reason)
TAKE A SECOND AND PUT YOUR MINDSET
in there mind -WHAT ELSE CAN THEY DO?- to keep people from wearing THE SKINS of these CREATURES- who WERE KILLED IN BRUTAL and VIOLENT manners (have you ever seen that some ANIMALS HAVE THEIR SKIN RIPPED OF- when THEY ARE STILL ALIVE)
if there was another HIGHER LIFE FORM- *(HOW WOULD YOU FEEL if your skin was desired and WORN?)
just SO they COULD "fashionably" SPORT THEM off and FEEL "LUXURIOUS".....
MOST CASES TODAY are not like ancient times when an INDIAN would track and hunt the animal down- completing rituals of apology - for taking the life of mother-nature's being- because that ancient case THEY NEEDED- the SKIN and everything they HARVEST from the animal- LIKE THE MEAT as well-
it was not JUST seen as FASHION
Please cut it out with the Caps Lock, it's really irritating to read. In answer to your question about what else they can do, how about petitioning to make the fur trade illegal, like rational adults?
it might not justify ruining the animal SKIN...(i agree with you)- personally i have never done something like that
but may i ask what justifies us to wear those animal skins when there is other material (such as "imitation" or wool)- i mean the list is endless really to the options
SORRY- (i like to use Caps for emphasis).......plus it doesn't matter if something is ILLEGAL- or LEGAL there will always be someone who will do as they wish- (regardless of the rules people place)..... sadly the world isn't perfect
i'm really not trying to be a hater- but you said it "style", and that "personal expression"- which in my opinion is pushed toward fashion.... it just makes me think that now a day we have other materials that help us keep even warmer- (i know i sound like a hippie - but i have seen those violent videos- where the ANIMALS are TORTURED..... after that personally I don't think I WOULD EVER PURCHASE... or wear authentic animal fur).. but that's just me- i don't want to bother your taste at all- (i just commented on this because i wanted to display that opposite view on the subject)
yea true- but i just gave a reason to their (incorrect action) of madness- towards "fashion statements" ( as is an item of clothing or set of clothes that expresses something about the attitude, point of view, or lifestyle of the wearer)
so then what would you consider them to do? (don't condone the action)- (but if they sit there stay quiet do nothing- no one will care- or give their cause any attention- no one will think to stop- even though some might just go and purchase another or beat the crap some people )(there is a very small percentage that would open there eyes)- there are so many forms of protest when people don't think what is happening is right- yes some are quiet and others not so- in this life we all are partially wrong and partially right- absolute truth are far close to none ( if you were wronged by these people then- i am sorry- but when ever i get hurt by someone i take a moment to consider why they did what they did- where they in the wrong- is there any other way i could keep this from ever happening? to repeat a cycle seems futile and pointless- i modify what i can- and then when they do something i ask why? then i would say (i like you deserve respect) and hope i change their opinion if not live life in a good manner (without hurting people in any way)
sure..... you know could compare oil to other issues- (like oil drilling "fracking") but AT THE END no matter what.... people will never agree... some prefer themselves over the better good (not many are willing to sacrifice) but ehh let- i guess ANIMALS should be skinned ALIVE sometimes- so someone else can be happy- screw that animal's young- they don't need a parent? right?.... i guess everyone should look the other way... i guess fashion and commodities trump all things
so killing by any other means makes it if any better? hmm... well if you can enjoy wearing a DEAD corpse without any remorse -(to the "any of all" means of how it was killed (and the life it once had))- then I hope you Have Fun........ and purchase as many Skins as you can....... (even though there exist plenty of alternatives to keeping warm and staying fashionable)
ever heard of vegan or vegetarianism (THERE ARE OPTIONS) to killing?
it takes more selflessness to sacrifice luxuries for a better... but like i said - have fun (creating a market where your demand for furs further destroys wildlife) hope you look and feel nice
you must know economics (FOR A SUPPLY there must BE A DEMAND) and you by wearing and purchasing skin your create a market............ i understand defense (from rabies) but when is execution for over population enough??..... you know animals have gone EXTINCT because of senseless killings..... ( just ponder this IF HUMANS far OVERPOPULATE this planet in different parts- you never see people go with a gun and reduce that population do you?)...... YOU CAN justify this as long as you want to but THE TRUTH is the TRUTH and you shouldn't try to lie to yourself to make yourself feel happier when you are snugging in that animals skin... it's not like you were about to die in the cold and you hunted the animal down for it to survive.... it's not like you fashion Roadkill skin that has died through other causes that weren't planned... fashion is fashion... survival is something far different
well congratulations i hope you are happy you create a Consumerism Killing Market... just because there is genocide it doesn't necessarily make it right (like certain fashion trends) .... IN THE SAME WAY you know because of consumers there are illicit DRUG MARKETS to which create jobs, suppliers transporters, cultivates, etc. (doesn't make this any better or correct) LIKE I SAID there ARE CHOICES (right and wrong) people do what they want without the thought of sacrifice because they want to be happy and trendy... without giving a darn for the regards of those that hurt
ilicit drugs produce an economy to some... just as furs
(there are other things that would way HELP more than just a very small percentage of the population... i mean when you outsource your commerce you are left with no revenue- do you not take that into consideration.... that is a limited market- WHY INVEST IN SOMETHING SO FUTILE... just so a small percentage can take pleasure in fashion? while the skins of some animals go into extinction- i consider -RECYCLING- invention- and other forms of labor more- meaningful and for more productive than this cruel killing of marked species- (i'd rather see that animal live in it's own skin- that know i contributed to its timed killing)
they are common for now- but you have NO guarantee the SUPPLY and DEMAND levels of the future.... plus something can be re-used for oh so long until it is obsolete.... LIKE I HAD originally stated.... (PAINT THROWERS probably get frustrated-( I AM NOT CONDONING THIS ACTION- just explaining their reason) PLUS why justify wearing those animal skins when there is other material (such as "imitation" or wool)- i mean the list is endless really to the options....... LIKE CARRIE7 said - TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE a RIGHT)..... point and case
they probably know they can't change every ones behavior and attitudes but- this will not give them a reason to stop trying..... yes the protest are (aggressive) forms of action but that definitely get people talking about the issue)... their intentions come from deep within-(good) they seek justice for those that can't fend for themselves- and at the end of the day NO MATTER THE JUSTIFICATION- people will due as they please regardless the consequences of their actions
True self-loving (tad narcissistic) fashionista would... because their action create crime against other forms of life(in balance and instability is established).. while in some parts of the world people try to procure life- these poachers (who feed the consumer) kill those people and the animals they protect (now there is a hint man on man killing) ..... any way you keep trying to defend an issue that lacks sustainability in the long run is sure to run into opposition- just accept it.... TWO WRONGS will NEVER EVER EVER make ONE RIGHT... no matter how you put it there IS SOMETHING WRONG with this scenario- accept it... (you have run into a stale-mate)
don't be delusional - people always try to justify there actions "to like something".... just because you try to give a BLOODY action a nice spin - it won't make it any better- Your a Grown person to know this by now- every time i show you the blunt truth you try and sugar coat an INJUSTICE-... but i guess - fictionally "Cruella de Vil" did the same and look there wow - (she stood as an example for those who are just out of it...) hmmm - o well HAVE FUN with your oh..... so indulging fashion statement- NEXT time you get hit by a protester- don't STOP AND ASK WHY...... you should be smart to know the REASON for there action... and if you KEEP buying well HOPE YOU ARE oh...... so darn PROUD of what you are doing with your life just FOR YOUR VANITY
of course whatever makes you delusional....THEIR AGENDA IS PRO LIFE....(seems like you don't get it) even though i've repeatedly mentioned why- PLUS...WHY would I want to bother wasting my time- AND TALK to OTHER'S WHO ARE SELF-LOVING (a tad narcissistic and egotistical fashionistas ) SOME PEOPLE are stubborn and blinded by what they know is wrong but to them is just ohhh... so darn pretty- o golly i guess they just never found beauty in other fabrics that they feel it necessary to take the SKIN of any other living creature... but AT LEAST when it comes to me I WILL DO THE RIGHT THING.... because ultimately... KILLING is a NEGATIVE ACTION... any dumb skull could see that
you said it YOU WISH to be offensive- good gal- at least you see it ... it's not like there isn't other fabric hmm.... o wait WOOL is warm... yup but i guess Vanity trumps Life.....................DON'T BE A COMPLETE .... IDIOT.... LIFE is LIFE- proLife is used for abortion purposes... but LIFE is LIFE- you are a living thing aren't you... while your humanity lacks a tad bit for creatures that have PRETTY furs.... have fun DEFINING things to your pleasure...as you only blind yourself from reality to RATIONALIZE something as right... but WAKE-UP CALL it WRONG...
who said they weren't 'entitle to their ideas.... EVEN IF they are WRONGLY ill-conceived from murder... people always have the right to mess up- sadly but true
LIKE I SAID.... why waste my time- WHY look at all those who decide to live in such a ( self-loving tad narcissistic fashionista lifestyle)
you were born with your skin.... why not strut nude before you take the skin of some other helpless creature.... but o wait YOUR HAPPINESS is above LIFE wups.... o well
ENJOY THE FUR... hope the supposed conscience you have works one day
EXACTLY ........ YOU.......... DON'T THINK.......... it's about time you should - even if you wish to not be offensive (your actions come off as so)
a Peta Member would prefer bearing their skin that stripping an animal of their.... (after all they do look after animal rights).........So it's not Offensive to help promote killings by your fashion statements? wow........ was i imaginative - huh..... WHY DO YOU MAKE ME REPEAT and REPEAT... why your statements are FLAWED???
I FEEL LIKE i am wasting my time to LET YOU SEE THE TRUTH....but if you want to REMAIN IGNORANT- then go ahead.... i let you be like a child who runs with scissors.... you have been tolled its wrong... but you just have a FUN time.... until you meet a protester and get a reaction from someone- you cry ...... and ask why?.... really - GROW up- THERE comes a point where you KNOW what's RIGHT and WRONG- and yes......... you choose to do WRONG -then try justifying it.... geesh can't you just say- yes......... there is a flaw to my fashion but it's my superficial nature that lures me to be satisfied by this..... ultimately that is it YOU know it - so ACCEPT it
DARN... i guess IGNORANCE is BLISS.....
it's amazing how "foolish" protest- get attention to an ISSUE- that some ignore for their own PLEASURE.... i advise you too keep on giving me feedback...... so i can continue and display how you lack substance sometime.... after all RIGHT will always prevail... no matter how much you try
you would know huh..... sorry miss thang.... but what's RIGHT is RIGHT... like what what's WRONG is WRONG......... never did i say you had to agree... NOW DID I???? hmmm... you are just upset you couldn't make a valid point stand strong enough.... i know it sucks - can't always be right..... or the CONTROL FREAK you seem to be as well.... o darn - bet you didn't expect this when you asked such a question... well - I AM GLAD i gave you a SENSE of THE TRUTH... accept it or not.... YOU should change your username from sneakyfox- to sneakyfoxKILLER... it suites you better (: ..... SUCK IT up and stop Nagging a hole bunch of Jargon... In this debate... you have come up short...
o hun- me lose my temper over someone like you please.... didn't you see i smiled =).....see- no you on the other hand began with name calling- i say it is you who is short tempered- don't give yourself such importance... i just lost patience- and it's not just my OPINION but a REALITY that it is killing... and Justifying a killing of any kind is difficult- ................................... and like you just drag on and on and on - over this issue... continue to do so- until you can openly see clearly and be able to produce more sufficient cases- that is when your point will trump the one i am trying to uphold...... so there :P hahaha... i dare you
like is SAID.... good golly you must have a short attention span.. but here it goes once again WHY BOTHER AND WASTE MY TIME...trying to influence those who ignore reality to justify their sense of so called (self-loving and tad narcissistic fashion)?
you are trying to control this conversation instead of accepting what i said and walking away... I NEVER ONCE TOLD YOU do this do that.....(i am just stating the options) and so you have no point in calling me a control freak.... because i said go ahead enjoy wearing you fur... even if an animal had to die- that shouldn't matter because hey you fell oh.... so nice it it.... it's all about you .... so who cares about nature's animals... p..shh fashion trumps life
good golly you need a life..... to repeat any action hoping for a different result is futile... but go ahead have fun- not like you will ever learn to live past your comfort and narcisctically indulgent fashionista ways anyway
I'VE ANSWERED ONCE..... YOU NEED A FREAKIN LIFE...Get over it.......(seriously) i'm just not going to continue wasting time on those who ignore what they want......(EVERY TIME YOU ARE WRONG.... you bring back jargon) but heck do as you freakin wish.... (remaining self-loving narcissistic fasionista will be you agenda.... that's simply it) enjoy :P
remaining self-loving narcissistic fasionista will be you agenda.... that's simply it- enjoy...... your jargon and blinded fantasy B) and absolutely have a karma filled life- you've earned it =)!!! congrats
NEVER SAID I DID.... hahaha..haha- darn joke is on you because Karma is the real Bwitch... and people get what they deserve- i just wish you a blinded fantasy of your self-loving narcissistic fasionista ways... BE HAPPY with your ways =D
hahaha..haha- darn joke is on you again- i just wish you a happily blinded fantasy of your self-loving narcissistic fashionista ways... BE HAPPY with your ways... let your vanity be your guide....(NOW continue with jargon... because i just know you will) you care too much not to... go ahead prove me right :).... keep responding.... it's what you try to do best
HAHAHAHA.............. yea right i'm upset =) - thanks for the good laugh- i need it it- you proved me right - can't just turn away but i guess you think you know more than you do- it will be fun with what else you will say- because i bet you can't take it that it won't bother me- your fault is your i don't care
As long as the paint thrower is willing to spend five years at hard labor to pay for it sure, why not.
No it's not right to destroy someone elses things. Sides what if that coat was inherited from your Grandmother and how the hell would people react if someone went around squirting bleach on leather boots & belts ,snakeskin purses etc .And you made a very good point ,People who wear fur can usually afford to replace it.Don't get me started of Green Peace ! Peace??? really ??/
I believe the people who throw paint should get shot in the kneecaps for it, when that animal was killed for the sole purpose of being made into a coat at least its death had a purpose, when they throw paint on it, its more of a contradiction than this answer the animal has now died in vain because of some over sensitive yuppie you can't see the purpose the animal is serving while being used to keep the rich warm
If animal rights activists think they're right for doing that then they should go the full ALF and start burning down McDonald's, KFCs, etc.
It's not right, it's counter-productive, and most importantly you're not going to win many friends or gain influence doing it.
