I always hear how Disgusting being a taxidermist is. Honestly I never thought of why it was nasty or disgusting. Simply because I can only imagine they are talking about the person not nessisarly the animal its self. You also hear the daunting question, "how do you know how it feels" Simply once your gone, your gone. Your soul is free from your body. I don't quite understand why it would be so important to know how the animal feels about being taxidermied. when your dead, does It matter what happens to your body? We as a species are probably the only ones that seem to care! honestly I wouldn't care! what would my family do, burn me, let me rot underground send me to be cut up and donated around the world? That wasn't even on my list of fucks to give when I was being gunned down.
another funny thing is, people associate Native Americans to being OK with owning skins. "They respect the animals and use them." Cant a normal person respect an animal just as much, and determining the USE of an animal goes many ways. Is USING the skin for clothing, for taxidermy, for Anything a use at all.........no its disrespect. the same way a native American uses a skin for clothing, headdresses, decoration on a wall is Respectful.
What would be the proper way to Use the body of an animal? what is disrespectful, to preserve it or to let it disappear in this earth. It always seems to be that people only care about something when they are gone never when they are alive. Funny part is, you will never even know when an animal is born or dies.
Why does being dead simply mean its disgusting, why would associate dead with being ugly and nasty. would your family look down on your body your lifeless eyes and just go EW Disgusting. would you find fido disgusting before you drop his body in a hole or toss him in a fire.
