This is not about the politics of wearing fur, but simply how the mainstream media portrays it since the mid 1980s. In that time, groups such as PETA finally gained some traction, through celebrities building up a BandWagonTechnique. Wearing animal fur was considered the mark of evil. Leather is usually given a pass since the rest of the animal was killed for meat anyway, "and would ''you'' tell a [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels 300-pound biker]] to give up his jacket[[note]] [[http://www.fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/peta-crashes-biker-gathering-not-to-be-missed/27275 someone did...]][[/note]]?"[[note]]Footnote in a novel by ''Creator/TerryPratchett''[[/note]] but fur industry revenues went into a decline through the late '80s and '90s.

If you wear a real fur, you must be evil or immoral. That's the only explanation.

* TheDitz, TheVamp, or FemmeFatale. As an old joke says, you slept your way to get that coat, and all the implications that leaves. Often, as a seduction ploy, [[NakedInMink they wear a fur coat with nothing underneath]]. No, that's not FetishFuel. It's sick and depraved I tell you!

* One of Creator/CartoonNetwork's ''WhatACartoon'' one-shots, ''Yoink Of the Yukon'', revolved around [[BearsAreBadNews a grizzly bear named Nook]] and his feud with the Royal Canadian Mounties over their allowal of fur trapping in the Yukon. Mind you, this being meant for comedy, fur trapping here is portrayed as literally stealing the clothes off the critters backs, leaving then naked and freezing in the snow. The issue is resolved when the main charactr Yoink, after much conflict, ends up outfitting all of Nooks friends with a set of tuxedos he got off the Home Shopping Network.

* In one episode of ''TheItchyAndScratchyShow'', Itchy (the mouse) skins Scratchy (the cat) alive and sells Scratchy's fur-covered skin to a GrandeDame. Scratchy, sans skin, accosts the Dame and takes his skin back, wrapping it around his neck. He leaves the store and is immediately pelted with red paint by a PETA-type group holding signs like "Fur is Murder."
