Is it insensitive to wear fur in Jo'burg or Capetown? Traveling there in a week. Thanks!!
it is insensitive to wear fur anywhere!!
The fur always looks better on the animal than on a human!!
Per the TA post above, drop the fur no matter where you are. It is cruel, insensitive and inhumane to name a few adjectives.
It won’t be cold enough for fur.
If you feel the need to ask, just don’t.Edited: 19 July 2018, 22:33
The traditional dress of many S.Africans still includes fur (even leopard fur). It is fairly unlikely that anybody will object, unless you call their attention to it, like you did here by asking the question.
To be honest, I think that most people would assume it's fake fur, because let's face it, who'd be so cruel and insensitive to support this type of thing? Oh yeah............you.
Some locals tend to wear a bit of "fur", usually a piece of impala or sprinbok skin as an amulet, headdress, or part of "traditional" dress.
The difference is, these animals have most likely been eaten, and not killed specifically for their fur.
Sometimes, other skins may be seen, as part of "traditional attire' on heritage days, or when taking part in traditional dancing.
Leopard skins are traditionally supposed to be restricted to ZULU "royalty", but nowadays, "anything goes", it seems.
