  • I own a fur coat. It is faux fur. I own it because it is warm and I like the way it looks.

    Today I was told that by wearing it I am saying real fur coats are justifiable.

    The man that said this to me was a vegetarian who regularly eats a meat substitute called Quorn.

    I pointed this out.

    He left.
