Is it ever ok to wear fur?

I need opinions on this, I don't wear fur!!!! But my Dad gave me a coat that had belonged to my mother, and it has a fur trim. I can't toss it, to much sentimental value & I don't have to many things that were my mothers. So since I'm going to keep it, is it ok to wear it, or does it just set a bad example? Thanks

this thread may end badly, but........

since it holds strong sentimental value, of course, keep it.

i, personally, wouldn't wear fur....even though i wear leather and eat meat...i know, i know...

No, it sends a message that you agree with the cruelty and by wearing it, it projects that you are labouring under the illusion that it is also fashionable.

Have the fur removed, donate the fur to an animal shelter and keep the jacket.

Great idea, what does the animal shelter use the fur for?

The fur replicates that of a young animals mum. Sometimes orphaned animals get turned in at shelters and the fur is comforting to them.

Lilah, I definitely can't imagine you wearing fur! But I can see the sentimental value in the jacket. I like Brody's idea to have the fur removed and donated.

Thanks sweetie! I know, not my style ;) but I hate to just let the coat go to waste. Brody's idea is perfect, I get to wear my mom's coat without feeling horrible about it, I'm glad I asked for opinions because I wouldn't have thought of that

the same people give the same responses. i say killing shit is awesome, you and the brigade say it's never okay, there's some infighting.

it's not having the question but posting it in a different form every month.

Yeah, it is weird. People keep posting for auth checks day after day and they get the same tedious responses. I really wish people would stop doing that.

If you like it, keep it and wear it. If you don't, then don't keep it.
It's all up to you and how YOU feel.
