OK, although I might just to annoy her!

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

If the video contains graphic depictions of animal cruelty, I'm not interested. PETA's shock videos are extremely annoying.

I don't wear fur, btw. Not because of animal rights, but because I can't imagine any kind of fur that would look nice... A furry Russian hat? A big fur coat? It would look so stupid, lol.

I watched the video. For comparison:" onclick=";return false;

Both approaches are deplorable examples of dealing in living beings. Regardless of what one thinks of Peta and its often questionable tactics, the video sheds a light on realities that are not comfortable to face.

btw, if you wear shoes, the glue used to make them comes from animal flesh. If you wear lipstick, an imporant ingredient comes from pig's stomach. This is the kiss of samsara, there's death all around. fwiw
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.
