    Re: Lush animal testing protest at Regent St *not for kids*

    I guess if I had a small child with me I'd have not hung about, tried to distract them and played it down. If it was an older child (thinking my 10yr old nephew) I'd have used it as an opportunity to talk about animal testing but also made sure he knew it wasn't real etc.

    I must be getting soft in my old age-I really honestly found the images shocking and upsetting, and would hate for my children to see them.

    You're not the only one and I can't help thinking that in the main (especially on Facebook) they are preaching to the converted!

    The only thing I find truly shocking is that in 2012 firms are still testing cosmetics on animals

    Yes I agree. I actually agree with it, you need the shock factor in order to gain people's attention. I can't believe in the 21st century they still test cosmetics on animals.

    She is one brave girl though.

    In term time, so children should be at school, and unlikely to see it

    From the first couple of posts with people removing Lush from their FB etc, I had to double check as I thought someone was protesting against Lush. I don't get that reaction, the company are doing a good thing, however shocking you may find it.

    Animal testing has gone rather sub-radar atm, so I'm pleased a big company has the guts to get people talking...

    I also did a double take as I thought (from the reactions on here) that Lush were exposed as testing on animals for a second. I agree, removing from FB is a little extreme, when ultimately all they are campaigning for is good.

    Eta: the more I think about this, the more I'm changing my mind on it. Despite initially saying that it's a little too shocking for the high street, actually it isn't. It's doing exactly what it should do, getting everyone talking about animal testing. Yes it shocks, but it needs to!

    I've only just noticed that the woman who took part was a student (from the same uni I was at!) I'll bet she was paid well for it. Thinking about it, back in the day I'd have done it too!

    That DM link really dramatises the whole campaign, ie the stuff they squirt in her eyes (which were probably eye drops ) its all nothing more than a stage act.

    Mmm, am inclined to agree.

    It's shocking and horrible.

    But then that's the point, isn't it?

    I was one that removed them from my facebook. I know the stand they take and I support it, I just *really* don't need it pointing out to me via a facebook feed daily. Totally preaching to the converted!

    I did as well-for exactly the same reasons as Sam.
