The 1950’s American dream of owning a mink coat is as dead as the 60 mink killed to make that coat.

I admit to having worn suede and leather pants myself for a while, but you just never feel clean, and it’s degenerate, anyway, to wear animal skins…. So I went back to bluejeans after my degenerate period.

Many years ago, I was in a Broadway show and I had to wear a fox fur around my shoulders. One day my hand touched one of the fox’s legs. It seemed to be in two pieces. Then it dawned on me…. her leg had probably been snapped in two by the steel trap that had caught it.

I have witnessed and tended to calves in rodeos who became paralyzed and whose tracheas were totally or partially severed. Slamming them to the ground has caused rupture of several internal organs leading to a slow and agonizing death.

I quit eating red meat a long time ago. I’m a vegetarian, but not by a moral issue or any kind of stand. I still eat dairy. And I quit eating sugar about the same time I quit eating red meat, but I eat fruit.

“I don’t eat meat, fish, or eggs. I was never a big meat-eater, but I’ve got more energy now,” says Shania, who hasn’t eaten an animal since she married longtime vegetarian (and record producer) Mutt Lange.

The person I love would never wear fur. Fur just makes me think of shallow women who have no conscience. The fur industry belongs to a time when people were selfish beyond belief.

The elitism of fur makes me wanna puke.
