Ruthless fashion

In the world of fashion it is desired to have the plushest fur coat from some exotic animal who was skinned deep in the jungle to make their clothing screech for attention as loud as the animal killed to make this piece of attire. If you feel a sense of sophistication and a pretentious purpose in life by wearing the skin once on a living being you have deep psychological issues. In all seriousness, answer this question to yourself honestly.

If you saw a mega Hollywood star or a jet set billionaire wearing clothing made of human skin, would you desire the look of wealth and purchase your own set of hair man sweaters to keep you warm in the winter?

Would you buy the leather shoes made from an overweight persons stretch marked skin because you liked the pattern?
No you wouldn't.
So explain why we as a planet full of people seek fur fashion? It is again the humans' sense to have a title of power, we as humans assume the wealthier you are materialisticly the more powerful you must be in life. It will never make sense to me who created this mind set, it breaks my heart to believe this is how our race is programed. We are as savage as the creatures we murder, the only thing we do different is fight with words and paper we call currency.

Hunters vs Hunted

Many people around the world find pleasure in hunting as a pass time sport. They recieve a thrill taking the life with weapons against a defenseless creature. I believe it is a form of power hunger, and these individuals find a sense of empowerment and superiority that they don't feel in their everyday life. Like all living creatures (including humans) have emotion and can feel we are all composed of organs, structured to live and reproduce, bodies no matter how large or small covered in nerves that with a touch can make their body tingle.
Imagine walking in your usual environment enjoying your life the way you always do. You hear a noise in the distance, but continue your normal routine. Suddenly you feel a sharp stinging pain of a bullet entering your body and you fall to the floor. With the hopes you survive you would more than one hundred percent likely press charges file a law suit and get whoever shot you the death sentence or life in prison, am I right?
So what gives your life more value than that of another living being?
We take advantage of those we feel we can over power and take control of, the more vicious of a hunt, the bigger the animal a hunter takes down the more pride they take in their kill. What labels you less of a murderer than Ted Bundy, what give you the idea you're not a monster like Hannibal Lecture? Nothing does just mans idea that they can take and destroy everything this earth has to offer, it is mans idea that they can conquer and claim whatever they want.
It is the narcissistic and arrogant society of individuals who have refused to change for centuries who are tearing this world apart.

Don't look away

It is seldom reported on the news, or social media exposing us to the torture of animals, why is that? Why do we as a society shun the violence towards one another, but not the damage inflicted on our neighbors? "Love thy neighbors as thyself" a saying we have all heard in our lives, who are we to label our "neighbors" as man and woman, we share this planet amongst millions of species. Our narcissistic society believes everything is placed on this earth to our disposal. As a human with moral value, when has it been okay to practice "cruel and unusual punishment" as an American it disgusts me to know our government does not punish these murderers and mentally ill tormentors who find pleasure from severely damaging the lives of a defenseless creature. All life is to be treated with respect, I will expose you readers to a link below with warning it is graphic, but why ignore it when we are we exposed to the terrorist beheadings of innocent Americans in the Middle East, but not the attempt to decapitate a defenseless canine on American soil. Open your eyes to the cruelty and abuse.

Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month (April)

Many civilians are unaware of the unheard cries from our fellow beings, however the month of April (as every day should be) is dedicated to raising awareness to animal cruelty. Could you imagine being locked in a cage somewhere in a florescent lit laboratory? Could you feel the fear of waking up to being trapped, having tubes inside of you injecting who knows what into you, and falling victim unable to cry for help, or fight for your freedom, but your cries are ignored for they are not understood. Throughout history mankind has dehumanized races or religions, committing genocides, or experiments on humans, today we shun these actions of our race of species because we are humiliated to believe a "civilized society" could ever be so savage. Now tell me, what is the difference of a human's life and an animal's, what is the difference of the quivers of fear, screeches of agony, and whimpers of mercy to the cruel hand of man kind when acted upon an animal or a person. The difference is us as humans tend to reject what we do not understand, we should understand as a population of beings with emotions and feelings we are not the only organisms who feel love, happiness, and yes, even pain. To my fellow pet owners, have you ever come home from a long trip, and are greeted by your dog jumping and barking full of joy because you're finally back, or a cat after a long day meowing and rubbing against your legs for you to tenderly stroke their fur? Everyday these beautiful creatures who we share this beautiful world with crying for us to help them. When you raise your hand to an abused pet they flinch knowing the pain to come, just like an abused child hides when they know they see the same hand about to come down and smack against their skin. Compassion is not a lost cause, compassion can be taught to those who have lost it, together we can inform the people around us about this fight for freedom and equality, to give voices to those who don't have one to fight for themselves, just as we have done before, I believe we can do now. Take the opportunity to make a difference in the life of one of Earth's own creatures, tell your friends and family, spread the word and give a voice to a silent cause.
