Now on FOX - Australia's Next Top Animal Abuser

Tags: Fur, fashion, faux, cruelty free, clothing, Australia's Next Top Model

Who saw the latest episode of Australia's Next Top Model? The contestants were made to wear fur! Real fur! And the host even had the stupidity to say that fur was making a comeback! What the faux?

This is about as irresponsible as you can get (from a channel that calls itself FOX!), especially when it is clear that the majority of people in the fashion world have no idea where fur comes from and the awful ways in which it gets from an animal's back to their grotesque coats.

I love the feel of my dog's fur under my fingers as I pat her, knowing her fur is right where it should be. But obviously, not all animals are as pampered as my pooch. This is the 21st century and it's amazing that some people are still of the opinion that the rightful place of dogs' fur (or rabbit, raccoon, mink, fox etc) is the outer lining of their coat! These people have blood on their hands!

Did you know that Perth's very own Harmony and Lawson actually want you to believe that the fur they use is 'cruelty-free'? Clearly Harmony Douglas has never ripped it off the back of a living breathing animal herself.

'Cruelty free fur' - it's an oxymoron. So don't ever buy into it if you see it on a label, or you run the risk of being called a moron yourself (not unlike certain hosts on ANTM)!

Thankfully people are staring to wake up. Israel is currently voting on a bill to ban any trade in fur. And there are now so many alternatives to fur, I really can't see why anyone would wear it, even if they do think it looks good (which is another debate altogether!).

Jump onto the ANTM forum and let them know you won't be watching a show that sanctions animal cruelty. You can also make comments on their Facebook page.

And don't forget to go faux yourself! I mean that in the nicest possible way ;)

I hate it how humans just think that they have the right to take an animals body, and skin, how about the animals rip their skin off and wear it!

The animals need their fur more than we do, that's why they have it. It's funny how in 101 Dalmations, we think Cruella's a total devil for wanting to kill 101 dogs just for a coat, and we teach this to our kids, and yet fur coats are 'totally in'.

Love that video by the way!

I don't understand how people can wear a dead animal. What is wrong with people?

I just left a comment on their FB page. This really sickens me.
Reminded me of an ANTM episode I saw where one of the models was opposed to holding a leather bag, but only if it was a brand-name one... if it was a Vinnies one then it wouldn't have mattered to her... problem is, the consumer doesn't know the difference either way.
