Climate crises may snowball into civic chaos. We can prevent mayhem. And we'll have fun in the process! How? Mimic the 'ecology of fear' by associating women with wild predators. Fashion is the first step. Leopard-spot apparel can empower even the most disadvantaged girl.
Anti-poacher "Fanged Wilds" uniforms could inspire teens to protect wilderness. Ultimately, ladies may enlist to patrol and prevent clashes between citizens and, say, snow leopards in Nepal... cougars in Santa Monica... bears in Switzerland... and wolves in Montana.
Can females really confront poachers? Or even lions, tigers and bears? Respect for femininity grows just at the idea of it. Respect can only strengthen social bonds when civilization faces climate collapse.
"Charismatic megafauna" are the most cherished wild animals in the world. Could our love for them be what saves humanity?
When we see someone wearing a tiger or leopard pattern, my friends and I exclaim, "Fanged Wilds!" Wearing predatory animal prints celebrates nature's power – and ours. ♥
