I’m not talking self defense here. Cross that line and you’re in deep trouble.
No, this is about killing animals.
I enjoy a juicy steak and most of my shoes are made of leather. (My grand father was a shoemaker and I’m able to glue or stitch a mend-able boot.)
I’m talking here about two very different situations.
It’s one thing to raise animals for food (our need for animal protein is real) and use their hides for clothing once we have already killed them but I find it really disgusting to hunt and/or slaughter animals just because we feel prettier clad/shod in their pelts.
