Oh yes I understand
I don't think it's something I need to "get off my chest" more of a... paradox.. contradiction.. Whatever you want to call it
Grew up with heavy metal, punk and so on so I tended to wear the leathers and so on. As I got older I stopped because leather costs a lot of money and doesn't last as long as people think. By the time I turned veggie and then vegan I had no leather items of clothing (apart from my protective gear, but I have no say in that).
However, I found that fake leathers made of man made weaves and plastics were a lot cheaper and had no animal products whatsoever. It's probably my opinion (even though I never really thought about it) that if it hasn't got animal parts in it, it's fine, no matter what it is.
