Can the skinning alive myth please just die already.

Seriously though, skinning dead is hard enough

Indeed

Someone needs to make a video demonstrating just how challenging skinning is on something that’s…

Ok, in the instances I’ve heard “skin alive” it’s been a threat of sorts. “I’d skin them alive” or something to that affect. It’s hyperbole and the fact that it’s such an impossible feat is meant to illustrate just how frustrated/mad the person is at the intended target. You proving how difficult it is isn’t going to stop people from using it. If I were to read in a story that a person skinned something while it was still alive I wouldn’t discredit it (unless it’s supposed to be fiction based off reality), I would just assume that character is that much more of a badass for being able to do something that is basically impossible.

I wasn’t talking about fiction or insults, I’m talking about the belief among animal rights campaigners that animals are commonly skinned alive for the fur. It’s the biggest anti-fur myth currently circulating due to a staged video where the group PETA paid Chinese works to skin a number of animals alive for one of their snuff films. People literally believe that animals are skinned alive all the time and use it as a way to attack pro-fur people like myself.  

Good to know! Sorry for the confusion. PETA is the worst. Their message of treating animals well gets all muddled in their terrorist antics.
