Ringshadow: Ral: These days, it's very dangerous for anyone to assume that a fur coat or a fur-trimmed piece of clothing is actually made from real animal fur. There is a LOT of faux-fur out there that looks and feels real. I used to have a fake-chinchilla coat that looked totally convincing. If anyone had ever thrown paint on it, I would sue the shiat out of them AFTER humiliating them in front of everyone by showing the "polyester/acrylic" label to the crowd.

/wears leather

Also quite true! And there's the question of allergies as well. I mean, latex paint generally won't bother someone with a latex allergy (synthetic and all), but a lot of people have sensitive skin or chemical sensitivities.
My mental image is some PETA loon throwing paint on someone then watching in complete confusion as the person collapses moments later going into anaphylactic shock, and the PETA loon going to jail for endangerment or assault or something.


Beautiful.

Yes, because it is so much better for the environment to wear nothing but shiat made from petroleum.

eddyatwork: Agreed. I'm vehement in my objections to fur but damaging their property is not the way to go about change.

Destroying someone's property tends to have this nasty consequence of them buying a new one. Hell, the people throwing the paint should be on the dime of the furrier companies, pretending to be animal activists.

ghostofreasonpast: Just curious, why do you paint throwers focus on women, but never rappers for your targets. I mean, you'd get a whole lot more attention by throwing paint on 50 Cent, then some 18 year old model, whose name no one recognizes.

I'd think that would be obvious: paint throwers are pussies. They lob a can of paint on model-of-the-month, she cries, they run away, she gets some media. They throw a can of paint on 50 cent, his boys beat them down, they go to the hospital, spend the night in traction, 50 gets some press.

That has to be fake, but even if it is this line from that story is just comedy gold.

"I...I was trying to show my outrage at a man with a heavy leather jacket, and he...he didn't even care. I called him a murderer, and all he said was, 'You can't prove that.' Next thing I know he forced me to ride on the back of his motorcycle all day, and would not let me off, because his girl friend was out of town and I was almost a woman."

Veteran of the Cola Wars: Even reverse cowgirls get the blues: Shut up, PETA. You've broken the law more than she has.

PETA has killed an uncountable number of animals.

/Seriously, google it.
//Quite a number of PETA no kill shelters are just money collection places where they do, in fact, kill the animals.


PETA has managed to fail at life in more ways that I would have otherwise thought possible for anyone other than a cartoon character or parody. Greenpeace as well. They're monsters.

Who says they are not?

PETA is behind poaching! The more illegal they make it, the more money they rake in! I must write an angry e-mail right away.

Maxpower42069: She killed all those animals AND threatened Geoffrey's cat. What the hell did Geoffrey ever do to her?

I don't know, I was wondering what happened to Mazy. I always assumed that owls got her one time when she slipped outside. All this time, it was some limey biatch.

What a real Geoffroy's Cat kitten might look like:

Seriously, biatch must SERIOUSLY hate cats to want to make a cape out of that.
 
2010-12-26 04:10:43 PM  
That image has the exact opposite of its intended effect. I want to destroy that cat with a blunt object, in three or four slowly-timed hits progressing toward the head. I may also opt for a slow-moving dipping mechanism over a blender.

Spelling and grammar that bad needs to be punished with as much pain and suffering as possible.

Every Item she auctioned was made pre-1973, not by her. She is simply trading the things.

I liked this bit...

"When confronted with the allegations of force-feeding the activists meat, using them as ad hoc latrines, leaving them incapacitated in fast food restaurant dumpsters, and 'farting on their heads,' the organizer declined to comment in detail. "That's just our secret handshake," assured the organizer."

ghostofreasonpast: All the endangered stuff is decades old, so she is recycling those furs, thus keeping down the price of poached stuff. In fact most of her stuff is older stuff, that by recycling is keeping the demand for new fur a lot lower then it was.

I don't wear fur, but I do wear a leather jacket, belts, boots and leather shoes. Most of you probably do the same. What is the difference between wearing an animals skin, or wearing its fur? Besides how is raising an animal for clothing, different that raising one for food. At least a mink is a stupid rat like creature, while pork, besides being tasty, comes from a very intelligent animal.

I don't think she deserves so much damnation for recovering and selling antiques that happen to be made from animal parts.


Although I do think it is fine that she is wearing recycled, old, grandfathered-in fur- I do not think that you can argue that she is lowering the demand for fur. It is kind of the same way I see blood-free diamonds.

If you were really strongly against it (like if you hate diamonds) you wouldn't just wear a fake one. You'd wear an opal or some quartz your fiance found or something and try to change what is popular.

I don't like diamonds. They're aesthetically neutral to me, and the only time I want them is on my drill bits. My engagement ring is one we designed and made together from silver and jade. There's more meaning to it than a month's salary that way.

Sorry for leaving Disney out of my post. I wasn't sure a random serenade of "Once Upon a Dream" was thread appropriate.
Then again, a chick in a hat with cat ears, a leather coat, eating a steak and shake burger while singing "Once Upon a Dream" DOES seem fark appropriate.
