What is Coat?
From Latin apricus, a coat is a defense against the cold. In its most common sense, the word is used to refer to the garment that is placed on top of the others and serves to shelter. However, it can also give name to a place, whether natural or artificial, that retains a temperature higher than its environment and that prevents the wind from entering, acting as a refuge from the inclement weather.
On the other hand, giving shelter is to provide help, protection or protection to someone. Positive feelings, love, friendship, are usually related to heat; to say that a group of people stands out for their warmth implies that they are kind, attentive people, who make others feel at home. The opposite is a cold being, which is generally synonymous with outside of its sensibility, inconsiderate, manipulative.
As for the coat as a garment, it is usually long and cover even under the hips. It is usually fastened to the front with buttons or a belt. It has long sleeves and sometimes hood. Coats, such as a cover, an overcoat, a jacket or a coat, can be made with different materials (such as furs or leather). There are men’s coats, women’s coats and unisex coats.
The history of the coat is not only linked to climate protection. The coat also allowed to establish a certain social position and make a difference with the rest of the citizens. For example, free people from ancient Rome used a robe to differentiate themselves from slaves, while the nobles of the Middle Ages wore a hopalanda (a kind of robe).
In the early 19th century,the Levite would be the quintessential coat of the upper class. As early as the 20th century, fur coats became a symbol of social status, mainly used by women. For decades, more and more animal protection associations have been manifesting themselves against the latter, since to manufacture them it is necessary to murder millions of innocent beings.
In fact, it is said that more than 20 million trap creatures are captured each year and more than 40 million animals are raised on farms that contribute to the dismal fur market. Given these numbers, it is clear that there are many consumers of leather products, such as coats, shoes, bags and other accessories. As with meat used for the feeding of people, an absurd distinction is often made between species hunted for these purposes and domestic animals. However, to the unpleasant surprise of those who contribute this great injustice on a relatively tight budget, China exports dog and cat skins to the rest of the world for the manufacture of inexpensive garments.
AnimaNaturalis is one of the organizations that fights to enforce animal rights, so ignored by most people. One of its most echoed demonstrations against fur coats consisted of an act on the public road in which they pretended to attack men and women who walked around a busy street with their lids; they pretended to murder and skin them, just as they do with the poor animals that become, without wishing, fine garments.
The aim of such manifestations is to draw attention violently to seek that skin consumers rethink and understand that no animals need to be killed to make clothing. We have reached a level of technological and industrial advances that allow us to create all kinds of synthetic materials, and it is time for us to return freedom to so many living beings whom we have tortured for centuries.
