The very big questionnaire.

Recommended Posts

Francoise1970

Dear members,

 

It is always a joy to be at Thefurden. It is one big family and I think it is nice to know each other better. So I have made this questionnaire.

May be there are some questions which you do not want to answer. Those questions are to ignore. And when you have a supplement, you are free to add.

You can fill in by copy and paste.

Let's start and have fun!

Francoise.

I know it is a very big topic and may be much work to answer, but I hope many, many members will fill in and make this a great sempiternal topic. Of course I will fill in too.

 

Thank you very much.

 

Just to butt in fur a bit..... have made this a sticky and hope that as many of you as possible take the time to answer some if not all the questions (as WF says after his post... (I think)). And congrats Francois on a very interesting questionnaire. There was a poll carried out by a member in the last couple of years which was illuminating... just might have to see about resurrecting that as well.

 

On behalf of the Admins and Mods, Francois, thanks again for a great topic. Piotr

I might just cut to the chase and answer the last question: too long

 

Appreciate the effort you've gone to Francoise but for people like me with a ridiculously short attention span, my mind will start wandering after question 5

 

.. Jumping off my high horse now....

hmmm

this is strange.

Some people are not answering the animals question.

 

Now if it was about meat then I think everyone would.

 

So what is happening here? I think it could be that the AR people are having two effects:

1. making people so annoyed they don't care

2. making people feel ashamed

 

neither have any relevance and you shouldn't tale notice.

 

For 000s of years people have worn fur. The first domesticated furbearer was the caribou. Since good care even them produced large herds and good and plentiful fur this was a question that at one time would have produced an answer of pride...not shame or turning away.

 

Or it may be simply that people are so alienated from the production that they feel disconnected from it.

 

That sadly is the same disconnection that produces the AR argument.

 

We should care about how the animals are treated....if we do then we ensure a good and infinite supply, and the AR people will have no argument.

 

The only thing that has given PETA a lift is the China dog fur thing.

 

Go to SAGA's site and look up welfare and ethics. there you will see how ell looked after the animals are.

 

They have died for us and we have an obligation to be appreciative. They live on through us.....we should feel connected with them....and proud.

 

When a horse or a dog dies in war they are rightly honoured for their service. It used to be that people would take a hoof of their trusty horse as a reminder. or the foot of a rabbit for luck. Or have the animal that they hunted...or the one that they hunted with.. painted and honoured that way.

 

We honour the animals by wearing them in my opinion. We truly appreciate their beauty...so at least the answer could be " no...I do not feel guilt because appreciate it as mankind has for thousands of years."

 

But I get the feeling some people either feel uncomfortable, guilty, or don't give a damn.

 

Please think about your answer to that part of the questionaire.

 

Farmers still say grace when they eat meat. They are connected, thakful; appreciate what God has provided and knowing that they have done their all for the animlas they use. Linda says she is thakful to God...which is a proper and beautiful answer that should mean she doesn't feel guilt but thanks. That is as it should be in my view. maybe if you think about it you would give an asnwer that either helps you not turn away from the reality of what it is .

Yo me when you see truly stunning pelts, you like them right? That is because the animal was well reared, or was a partcularly handome wild specimen... so therefore you do care and appreciate.

 

EDIT: On the other hand please do not refrain from filling it in...and being honest. I would just like some consideration for those issues s'all....I am not going to moralise about it.

I think touchofsable makes a very good point here.

 

I have never really thought about the pros and cons of farmed furs and furs taken in the wild before - in buying furs my only concern has been to obtain pelts of the highest quality.

 

I have now been led to think about these issues, and I have edited my response to the questionnare to include my answers to these questions.

 

Congratulations to Francoise for having prepared the questionnaire - I hope that many more will complete it.

Age? 26

 

In which country and town do you live? Gothenburg, Sweden

 

Which profession do you have? Student

 

Are you married or living together, etc.? Single

 

Since when do you love fur? Since I was 6-7 years old I would say

 

What was the trigger to start your furlove? Don't really know actually. I have been thinking about this a lot, and maybe it was one of my kindergarten teachers who triggered this. I remember she had a great full length fox fur and since this was in the middle of the 80'ies it was huge, especially when your just a kid. I remember that I liked her very much and that she was very comforting, so maybe that's how it all started

 

Do you consider yourself as a fetishist? Yes

 

Do you love real fur or fake or both? Just real fur, fake doesn't really do it for me

 

Do you collect furs? I guess you can say that

 

How many fur items do you own? 5

 

Which items? Two full lenght blue foxes, one in excellent condition and the other one is rather old. One wolf jacket (men's style), one silver fox vest (got it today actually) and one blue fox hat

What is the value of your fur collection? I think I've spent about 500 euros so far

Is your collection growing or do you sell sometimes? I've sold some of my furs in order to upgrade the collection

 

How do you use your furs? Wearing or in other ways? I do not wear them in public, but sometimes at home. I also enjoy them in bed

 

When and where do you wear your furs? I find that I use them more when I have a lot of other stuff going on, as a kind of stress relief. I only wear them at home

 

Do you live in a 'fur country' or an 'anti fur country'? Five years ago it was very anti-fur, but I think it's becoming more and more fashionable to wear fur again here in Sweden. Maybe not as full lenght coats, but as a trim on leather jackets, scarves and so on

 

How many people know about your furlove? None outside of the internet community

 

Does your partner share your love of fur? I'm single

 

How is her or his reaction about this love? ---

Which aspect of fur do you love most? The warmth, the comfort, the looks and the luxury

 

Which furs do you prefer: from the wild or farmed? Why? I must admit that wild furs is a more of a turn-on for me, but all the furs I have are farmed

 

Do you think the animals are treated humanly in the farms?

Yes, but I think the conditions could be better

 

Do you think the harvest of wild furs happens in a correct way?

Don't really know, but some of the traps doesn't look all that nice. Don't know what the method is nowadays though

 

Do you care about this? Yes! As with meat production we have a responsibility to avoid unnessecary suffering of the animals involved

 

Do you feel guilty about your furlove? No

 

Do you feel sorry for the animal who has to give his fur? No

 

Did you ever kill an animal for its fur? No

 

Are you feeling guilty for your surroundings to be a fetishist? No

 

How did you handle that? When I got online and saw that I wasn't the only one with this love of fur, I realized that there wasn't anything "wrong" with it

 

How many hours are you at Thefurden? 15-30 minutes per day

 

How many topics did you started there? A couple

 

Do you have other fur clubs besides Thefurden? I am a member of some others, but I don't go there that often

 

Do you use a messenger to talk with other furlovers? Yes

 

How many people are in your messenger list? One that is a fur friend
