"McQueen's macabre designs might be intended to titillate, but they simply nauseate. There is nothing remotely 'fashionable' about the torture and death of animals killed for something that a caveperson would wear."
Hopefully this will serve as a message to McQueen and others who condone the torture of animals for their designs that compassionate people will not continue to indulge their cruel fetishes, and that their archaic sense of what’s “fashionable” will soon be little more than an ugly footnote in the history books. That, or they’ll obliviously keep it up until some legislator has the good sense to ban fur farming for good and put them out of business. Whichever comes sooner is fine with me.
I’ll update this entry with more info as this story develops.
Alexander McQueen is by far one of the best designers of all time. Also, i think people should watch what they say like saying "he" when he isn't even living at the moment sadly. I do think that using fur is wrong but i think that doing all of these idiotic jump-outs on stage isn't going to do ****. I like what PETA's trying to stop.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
