(video of kids in high school rockin’ their tails)
I had no idea….So ever since I got a fox tail people have been wondering if I am a part of anything? If I’m one of those furries? or those kids apparently in high school who believe they are wolves and want to solidify their “clan” with a symbol they all wear….a tail. Similar to that of gangs and their colors, or sports teams and their uniforms, or tribes and their body modifications….you get the point.
This whole new tail phenomenon seemed sudden and strange to me. Considering the purpose of my tail was to simply be on my key chain so I can’t lose my keys. Function…not just for fashion. Although I hook my keys to a belt loop and wear it all the time so it doesn’t hurt to have something that compliments my entire look.
Humankind has been wearing the pelt of other animals since the beginning and we continue to do so. This may be a bit of an overkill as far as blatant shock value in the fashion but they are somewhat functional, as in my case. Leather goods are OK but somehow a tail or fur is strange to most people.
Honestly, if there were cows out there in the world who were capable of killing us humans and using our flesh for garments I would understand. I would not be offended considering the things we have done to other creatures. Equal rights for all. Even those who cannot speak for themselves all the time.
A bit of a ramble, I know…but thoughts? Questions? Concerns? My tail is indeed real….and a great place to get not just fox tails but other amazing taxidermy jewelry, accessories, and trinkets is NEDA’S FLOWER SHOP in San Francisco CA. It’s also part of this taxidermy shop going on in there as well. Also THE BONE ROOM in Oakland CA is another cool place to check out.
