My call on this is animals were put on earth to benefit humans.  While I don't want any animal tortured, their meat and skin serve useful purposes.  If you're offended by the product, don't watch.  For me, the price and style of the jacket are not attractive so it's an easy pass.  But I am not opposed to leather or eating meat.

 

 


When animals and man were first created, animals did not

eat other animals, and people did not eat animals.  It was after the Fall that things changed.

I’m totally out of the game on both counts. I don’t like faux leather or real leather in fashion. Neither is comfortable enough.

@White Picket Fence   I totally agree and thought the exact same thing as you when i saw this. It is disgusting and cruel.

@Kitty Galore   Unfortunately alligators are skinned alive while strung up to provide skin for some of the world's most haute couture expensive bags.  I've seen the videos and I wish I could unsee them....horrific

@phoenixbrd , I know what you mean about wishing you could unsee some things.  Many years ago, I was very involved in an AR group locally.  There were quite a lot of us who did what they called outreach tables in malls, etc.  In order to know what we were talking about, we needed to educate ourselves and watch some horrific things in order to really know.

 

That was a time in my life when I began to quit eating meat.  Yes, it was difficult and I still haven't stopped all of it as I am a pescatarian, though don't eat it every day.  I no longer carry a leather handbag nor buy leather shoes.  Do I have them?  Yes, from years ago; however, rarely wear them.

I keep running across a tv channel where there are alligator hunters hunting alligators.  Seems like whenever I pass that channel.  Maybe all day/night long?

 

Anyway, I wish that program would 'go away'.  

 

With all of the hunting they do, why isn't there a protection law for alligators?  There couldn't be THAT many alligators at the place where those hunters continuiously hunt and film.

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).
