Everyone knows I love Khloe Kardashian, that’s not a secret anymore haha. And you have no idea how special I feel when someone tells me I look like her (or have a similar look/fashion sense as her). And once I found the seasons of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” on my Netflix – well I became addicted like usual.
And recently I watched the episode in season 3 where Khloe is approached by PETA to do a “I’d rather go naked, than wear fur” campaign. This combined three of my favorite things, and two very important points. My three favorite things: Khloe Kardashian, animals and body image. The two very important points: animals and body image.
It took a lot of strength and courage from Khloe to take her clothes off in front of a photographer, she ISN’T Kim who in society’s eye is pretty much perfect. Especially at that point in Khloe’s life – everyone in the tabloids and online were calling her fat and saying she was a transvestite. Her stepfather Bruce even asked her if she should lose a few pounds before the shoot. I would be so upset if someone in my family said that to me.
I’m a huge animal lover – and I hate fur coats. Yes they are very pretty, but they would be just as pretty if it was faux fur. And it is tough to work in a store where we sell real fur coats (and yes, I’m being serious – my store sells real fur coats). I’ve had small disagreements with co-workers over buying a fur coat, and my manager likes to say “maybe the animals died in a natural manner.”
Unfortunately I know that statement isn’t true, but they all know (and the costumers appreciate) the fact that I refuse to own a fur. I don’t mind so much if someone buys one from the store, but I won’t purchase one myself ever.
