Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

platypus_662_600x450   Did you know

Platypuses were hunted extensively for their velvety fur in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. However, once this mammal was protected by law,  people ceased to use platypus fur for coats :).

When it comes to animal rights and principles, Joaquin Phoenix is “top of the pops”. Contrary to popular belief, the scar on his lip is not the result of a repaired “hare lip” (a fissure that resembles the cleft lip of a hare). It is simply a birth mark. However, given that Joaquin puts his money where his mouth is, I personally could not care if he had a lip resembling that of a platypus (see above).

Joaquin was brought up vegan and has continued this lifestyle as an adult. He refuses to wear any costumes made out of animal skin. For the movie Gladiator (2000), Quills (2000) and Walk the Line(2005), among others, he requested that his “leather” costumes be made from synthetic materials. Of course any real fur would be banned.

Then comes Charlize Theron who was born in South Africa and is now an Oscar-winning American actress.

As part of PeTA’s anti-fur campaign, Charlize posed with her dog. Charlize credits her respect for animals to her upbringing on a farm in South Africa, where her mother taught her compassion for all life. Charlize, who regularly tops Hollywood’s “Best Dressed” lists, says, “Fur isn’t necessary. It doesn’t make sense to me to let these animals suffer for fashion”.

Unlike Joaquin, Charlize does eat meat.                                                                                                                                                                              CHARLIZE Aren’t they gorgeous?

I would love to have Charlize officially state that she supports the banning of fur in South Africa. Just imagine the poster in all the south African Malls.

Does anyone know how to contact her?

THEN WE GET THE FUR HAGS

A FUR HAG is a narcissistic person who wears a ridiculous amount of fur and doesn’t care that it supports MURDER.                             .fur hags Sadly, there are many celebrities who thrive on wearing fur. Two who love drawing attention to themselves are: Lady Gaga and Madonna (GAG & MAD).          Lady Gaga wearing four Raccoon furs

Unfortunately celebrities have so much influence over people and FUR HAGS have no shame.

There are, however, several campaigns trying to counteract the influence of fur hags. One face book page Boycott J. Lopez, Protest Her Wearing Fur, the Skin of Murdered Animals specifically aims to raise awareness around the abhorrent fur trade.
