Not being a vegetarian I don't feel that I can start taking any moral high ground regarding society's treatment of an animals, but just so I am clear:
I do not agree with the inhumane treatment of animals for either food or fur.
Taking out the argument about whether we should be using fur or not (as that is a whole different kettle of fish type argument about the fashion industry as a whole) My main sticking point is that fake fur has a hugely damaging effect on the environment - being made out of complex man-made fibers it is very difficult to recycle whereas real fur is biodegradable.
While I was in Sweden, perusing the fabulous vintage shops, I came across this beautiful fox fur hat, given the vintage trend of the past 5 years, more and more people now own fur. And this is where I find it hard to draw the line, we have no control over who or how vintage fur items were made. But made it was, and if you are choosing to own fur then surely vintage is the way to go?
To be honest I am still not sure what is right and what is wrong as I can see both sides of the argument very clearly. But I guess that the important thing, (while I am still unresolved) is that I am willing to discuss it, and so if/when I get asked about my moral stand point on fur while wearing the aforementioned hat at least I wont mumble something inaudable, remove the hat and then spend the rest of my life in a guilt ridden emotional hole.
