Fashion Victim

You always hear the words "fashion victim" in regards to people wearing the latest trends but I think those words are better suited for the animals who are gruesomely killed in the name of fashion. Yes we obviously need to kill animals for food and clothing (although vanity is another question) but why with such methods. Seems kind of sad that we have lost the reverence and respect for that which sustains us that we once had thousands of years ago when we lived much closer to the land. I guess maybe being "highly civilized" comes with a sort of detachment or disconnection of the things around us.
