Four Legs Good, Two Legs Bad

I've been a vegetarian for over 13 years now. I know, hooray for me, right? Just hold on... actually, I'm a terrible vegetarian. And it's not like I cheat and dine on pepperoni when nobody's looking, but I just don't eat right. And over the years, I've often thought, I should eat better, maybe I'll just eat chicken or tuna... you know, for the protein. But let me point out, I've never faltered, and never eaten meat. The last piece of meat that I ate was a grade D hamburger from a McDonalds in Niagara Falls, New York--and I haven't looked back since. Almost every friend that I have used to be vegetarian or a vegan. Even when I'm hungry, and annoyed with eating the same type of foods or whatever the problem may be, I choose to follow my gut instinct.

So, I never preach about my beliefs to meat eaters and never tell people what they should or should not be doing (although most meat eaters feel rather comfortable telling me what I do is stupid). Anyhow... let me get to the point. And I apologize for the sloppiness of this post. I just completed a magazine article (that I spent too much time working on) and I kinda hate keyboards and computers right now.

This morning was busy, so I made my fact-finding and news gathering rounds this afternoon instead. While checking one of my favorite sites Newstoday, I stumbled across a post that read:

**Holy Shit... BE WARNED, VERY GRAPHIC ANIMAL CRUELTY VIDEO**

Indeed, this person was right. This is one of the worst cruelty videos I've ever seen--and mind you, my friends and I were addicted to the Faces of Death videos and all their more brutal and bloody spin-offs, so I've watched some hellish video in my day. And granted, this video I'm about to link you to concerns the fur industry. So, for anybody that knows even a drop about the furrier trade, it truly is a savage, merciless, but yes, lucrative
business.

Anyhow, I am enraged but also sick to my stomach right now... partially because of the continued abuse and torture of animals [like the poor creatures in this video], but also with myself. When I see this type of stuff, it makes me feel embarassed to be a human. It would be different if these people were hunting food for their families. But these animals are being rounded up and slaughtered so some over-indulgent person can have a fur coat. It's so insanely stupid. The next person I see wearing a fur coat will most likely be treated to a a broken nose:

PLEASE DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED TO WATCH A HORRIFYING VIDEO WHERE ANIMALS (FOXES, I BELIEVE) ARE BLUDGEONED, TORTURED, AND SKINNED ALIVE.

I have to go vomit now.

I'm a card-carrying carnivore. I talk about barbecuing like I'm about to be reunited with a long-lost love. There's nothing more satisfying to me than a steak and a bottle of wine.

That said, and I refuse to watch that video, I believe people who kill animals for fucking furs in this day and age are idiots.

Now, I've had more than my share of leather jackets, and that's not about to change, but that's a different matter than fur. Leather can come from cattle slaughtered for food. Understandable.

But to kill animals solely for fashion? Fools. I don't understand why that still exists. I don't understand how people can be that ignorant now.

And the kind of people who wear fur are too fucking thick to change their actions without a bloody nose.

In my humble opinion.

The Last Ditch.

I'm baffled, scribe. Cow or Fox or Rabbit or Dog or Bird...What makes one worth more or less than another? People are so weird.
