***Cyber protest on Facebook page/ May 1st, 2012:
This group page:" Real women wear fur"
is a real shame and includes many poor women who think that animals must be killed so that they can look good.
On the first of May ( many people don't work on that date) we plan an
international cyber attack, meaning that on that date we all need to post
Anti-fur messages, sites, pictures, comments, quotes, everything we want to
say to them.(staying polite though).
Please join this Cyber protest and ask all your friends to join too. Thank
you very much!

many innocent animals!!

I logged on to see the messages and I don't see anything going on. They are probably deleting things that come up. I'll post that website you provided in the email and see what happens.
I added this with the website:
"We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals... We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far beneath ourselves. And therein we err, we greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complex than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth." -Henry Beston
I thought it was fitting as they seem to justify the action of fur-wearing by saying that 'ugly animal' fur looks better on people.
this is my favorite quote ever. Thanks for posting it.
I went to the site and it is truly one of the most vile and disgusting things i have ever viewed.
posted a message, but it will most likely be deleted.
one of the pics was of a woman in a fur saying "women who wear fur love animals. there was another of seals stating they are the best to wear. had a hard time looking and reading such banal garbage. hideous!
I tried, I posted this
I don't get it (the page title), so if an animal is ugly, it's OK to kill it for its fur? Is it OK to kill ugly people for their skin? What about baby harp seals? They are really cute, but people like to kill them for their fur. There are a lot of great synthetics out there now, you can have really soft, luxurious, fur without anything needing to suffer.
I don't see anything else up there though, maybe they are keeping comments off? Hopefully people will post good ones to at least make them think, even if they turn around and delete them.
I sent this as a message, sure it may not be seen by many, but the perpetrator will see it, and may start to eventually think otherwise about their passion for death.
"Fur is worn by hideous selfish programmed drones who kill! And BTW most who wear fur are ugly outside, just as they are inside.. Animals are beautiful, nature is beautiful!"
thx everyone (noha, chris, tricia, rudy and others) for helping out mitzi!
the idea of this sort of thing is again quantity rather than quality as explained here:
they will delete your posts, but as noha says, they will see them even if they don't read them.
thx to the net, we can fight on many different fronts!
they have to watch that page constantly, delete posts and unfriend people.
great idea to report it too! i'll suggest that to mitzi.
"real women wear fur"? what is this 1930 or something? stone age? I mean come on...
I saw a woman today, in May nonetheless, who wore fur and it was definitely not the kind that looks as if it could've been faux. it was basically a whole fox (although of course gutted etc.), with the face, eyes, paws... everything left on the body, hanging around the woman's neck with the paws somehow tied or glued together. what the actual **** is wrong with people? there's clearly no need for that stuff, and it looks hideous to anyone who can see it for what it really is - a corpse. I wouldn't necessarily be the kind to go around throwing red paint on people like that but I can't judge those who do either because it's truly sickening. :/
