  • I wear leather - I like it. I also own leather furniture. It's a by-product of a consumable.

    I don't wear fur, I don't believe in raising animals for their pelts alone. If there were a "consumable" animal that produced a pelt I would wear I would.

  • I watched a video on PETA about fur.  It showed some extremely gruesome footage of animals being DEfurred so my answer is no.  Leather?  I have no idea if I wear leather or not.  No leather jackets or anything like that, but aren't the soles of shoes made out of leather?  I don't know.

  • I wear leather. I can't afford fur. If I could afford fur, I'd wear it to.  I don't have any personal moral or ethical issues about wearing either.

  • Leather yes and our couches are leather. I have no desire to wear fur but I have nothing against others that do.

  • Right now I have one leather coat and I usually buy leather purses and shoes, they seem to last longer and stay clean better. If I remember right I'm pretty sure the "fur" coat that my mom bought me years ago is fake but the coat that was handed down to me from my grandmother has real rabbit fur on the collar. Otherwise, my husband's a hunter. One of his friends is in the process of making a gun sock out of the deer skin from a deer he killed this year. And because the coyotes have grown too much they're planing on hunting some of them and making things out of their fur too. So, I don't have to buy fur and as long as they're doing it for a good reason, not just for "sport", I'm happy.
