Furries. What's the problem?
Seriously, I see a lot of people hating on the furries. Is it just they're easy to make fun of, or do people really think dressing up as animals is terrible and perverted? Why is dressing up as animals worse than dressing up as anime characters?
most people who hate furries also hate cosplayers. i dont hate furries but i do think it is kind of silly and pretty stupid but i dont involve myself with any of the trolling/flaming towards furries.
Thank you! A reaction that I consider to be appropriate for those who don't like the furry fandom! *bows to you*
I'm sensing Furry drama with this post. XP
Anyway, Furries are cool and stuff, and they're made fun of, because they don't have as much balls as some other subcultures. You call them an animal fucker, they'll tell you MTV and CSI is a lie and go whiny like shit. I remember them days... :')
oh but i do hate cosplayers !
Furries tend not only to like anthro (or non-anthro) animals, but also any bunch of fetishes in addition to sexualizing animals... and then there are some that don't sexualize at all (although they do seem to be in the small minority).
So furrydom is seen as a perversion of sorts, and it's just... easy to pick on, because when it's displayed in the media or even on the net...
What's Jeff Foxworthy's quote? 'Southerners are as smart as people anywhere else in the country. We just can't keep the most ignorant amongst us off the television'. The most extreme and shameless furries are often the ones that get the 'oh my god come look at this' attention.
That and there's some folks on the net who try to start shit or pick on folks as a source of amusement. And many furries have thin skins and limited social skills.
Bottom line is furries are a wide variety of folks who happen to like anthro or non-anthro animals. From there there's a dozen fetishes and subgroups and whathave you, but they're just that, subgroups. Often furries as a whole are labeled as a subgroup... as ageplayers, as fursuiters, as yiffers, as the list goes on and on. And that bothers furries because it takes so little misinformation to give people something to make fun of or dislike.
Eventually either you start to develop a thick skin for it or you become a target for folks who troll.
The type of publicity that we furries get is... not good. I mean, it was even on CSI. When you think furry, what do you think of? There are lots of different types of furries, and different "levels", I suppose, of how into the fandom you are. Well, it's not really a fandom... more like a way of living. Most furries believe in, and embrace, their animal side. I personally believe that every human being has a connection with a particular type of animal, and that is visible in the way they live and react to their everyday life. But, a lot of furries are just into it for the sex. As you stated, a lot of... very strange, even quesionable, and sometimes illegal, fetishes are common in the furry world. (I think the strangest thing I'm into is biting... and that's pretty normal as far as furries go!) You're right. The strangest furries are the ones getting all the attention and publicity. Unfortunately, that's all people think of when they think "furries". It sucks, but that's life. You'll never change some people's opinions, but at least we know the truth.
its an excess.
simple as that. its not something "real" its mearly todays taboos, and childhood memories coming home to roost.
other then that, i hear theyre trying to geneticly splice pigs/horses/and people, to make the omega of sex slaves.
and they will tie these CHILDREN to bard walls, and cages, to do nothing more then release upon them their own dark, twisted, psycho-sexual desires.
that should answer your question..
hey, when are you goin go mention the GoHoWa?
It's because most people associate "furry" with "bestiality", that's the problem most of the time...-MOST- of the time...
yes, and there really is no difference between the two.
just add water.
Unlike so many serial adders, I have nothing against furries. I honestly don't get why people are so disturbed by them. Except the furry porn, that's disturbing.
I just think it's weird as fuck, and funny.
I dunno...But animals is better...People who are mascots do it...
But thier paid...
But no one complains.
I think it stems from people's inability to understand the flight's of fancy that other people delve into. I personally do not care for the whole furry deal, and my take is simply "go and have fun with the furry business, just don't get any on me."
My problem, as with any form of diversion, is when it becomes an obsession or the person involved begins to lose tough with reality, much like Matrix fans who jump off buildings because they believe they are "free," as it were (who knows, they might be, but I'll stick with what I know. Gravity kills, and the cement isn't elastic!)
I knew a girl who was honestly in love with Cell from the show, and I am being generous by calling it show, Dragon Ball Z. She was so far into it, she neglected almost everything else. That is what I mean by taking it too far.

It's fucking stupid. I don't care, though.
It gets creepy when people sexuallize animals. I rarely see furry pictures that aren't supposed to be "hot." Whereas Anime is based off people, so sexuallizing them is at least somewhat normal, calling Nala hot is just fucked up.
My guess? Well, if you notice, most furries are irretrievably ugly. Which, in 9 cases out of 10, also translates out to mean irretrievably insecure. So, they're too uncomfortable in their own skin and sexuality that they invent an entirely new criterion of hotness, and judge things based on that. And then they get so into it that they sexually that new standard as a replacement for NORMAL good looks. All because they're too ugly to get a date.
The first person to show me a hot furry fan will win a retraction from me.
As in...like that episode of CSI?
Please remove me from your friends list. Thanks.
I will not remove you from my friends list.
you have to deal with it.
Three words: Shitting Dick Nipples.
That said, I must defend furries a little bit, as I am one. :P Not all of us wear animal costumes (as was the impression in the CSI episode, MTV special, and whatnot), and not all (not even most, very few actually) who do wear animal costumes want to fuck in them. To be a furry is to have an affinity towards anthropomorphic animals, that is, animals with human characteristics. And this attraction doesn't have to be sexual, either, though in most cases it is.
And in response to lordcoon up there...I know quite a few furries who are very attractive (including myself, apparently), so although you might be right in some instances, I think the attraction might be more than skin deep.
Show me a picture of yourself and I'll be the judge of that.
