Handlebar mustaches are back in style (for guys and girls alike!), thanks to peta2's new "Grow Your Own Fur" challenge. The campaign, which features a T-shirt as well as free mustache stickers and leaflets that teens can use to spread the word at school, encourages kids to sport a 'stache to make a statement against the cruel fur industry. When teens get comments on their new facial fuzz, it will be a great opportunity for them to tell their friends and families that, unlike facial hair, real fur is ripped from the bodies of still-breathing animals who feel pain and fear, just as we do.

Another campaign is already using mustaches; prostate cancer awareness maybe, here in Atlanta anyway... it sort of leaves out most women... NPR did a piece by the way about animal treatment the other day. It on All Things Considered & had an ok message... not good, but ok by status quo standards; it mentioned cuteness, not consciousness, as what we use to determine abuse & generally recommended eating less muscles. Anyone with me on calling them muscles? People hear 'meat' & by the definition of the word, it's food, so that somewhat affects them (badly), I reckon.

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.
