MOST People don't know...(sensitive subject)

I had really wanted to post something about a recipe...Something light and fun...but.....I had reposted something on FaceBook that came on my wall today.It was a picture of a skinned rabbitt ..Most people do not know that animals are skinned alive for their pelt/fur/skin...the skinners believe that the fur/pelt/skin retains more moisture for the finished product..oh boy...what a calvecade of reponses from friends...I thank God that there are many,many animal advocates out there who are so passionate about the cause of animal rights and veganism...

The thing is....I feel I must inform and educate about my veganism and animal rights...I stated that I have been un-friended by many who couldn't deal with my posts...I also cross post for animal rescue,and any kind of animal abuse..I know I have many friends left to lose...

SIGH.....

    Vote no 2. You certainly won't lose me as a friend Alexandra! I first found out about the horrors of the fur trade a few years ago, and sInce then I have done my best to publicise what is going on as much as i can. It's the only way we can ever get these atrocities stopped. It's true, sometimes you do lose friends over it. But you are doing the right thing by standing up for these poor creatures who are dying agonising deaths, which is worth a lot more. It upsets me so much, I don't really know what to say about it. It's all so horrific, so brutal and so insane. Keep up the good work, the animals need you!

    Vote number three! Yeah, people just don't seem to understand... or don't want to. It's hard to explain to them that milking cows are slaves and that their udders hurt because we keep empregnating them, not because they just produce milk nonstop! So imagine trying to tell them that some people are cruel enough to skin animals alive! I have a new article, They Say It's Misplaced Pride. Check it out and vote if you like it!

    I didn't know that, Alexandra, and I must admit I'm glad you didn't post the FB picture. That is horrible. Another interesting tidbit I came across once is that even some FAKE fur has some animal fur in it. So vegans and vegetarians, for a number of reasons, might want to steer clear of fake fur as well as real fur.
