Default What the hell is a damn "furry"?

Since that ludacris topic in ROM Hack is the first time I've ever heard of it. So, indulge me. <img src=smilies/moon.gif>

No. Go now. Save yourself.

Google Images will tell you all you need to know, but remember that you can't "unsee" things.

Basically, it's a not so interesting mental abberation of people who are so socially retarded that they begin to deny their own humanity. It's truly one of the saddest phenomena I've ever come across, on the internet or anywhere else.

So they're drawings of animals with huge cocks, in mostly gay positions?


Oh ok.

Dickhead. I'm 100% human, I just happen to think that moogles are badass. Does that make me a furry? Damn right. Furries run the gamut from perfectly normal people who like a particular art style involving safe-for-work anthropomorphics to the people you describe. Their sexual preferences range from completely asexual to the most fucked-up perverts you can think of. Their art choices go from perfectly safe-for-work, innocent artwork with no underlying sexuality to the stuff that you'd find if you Googled for VCL Winger (please, do yourself a favor and don't).

Funny thing is, people rag on furries as a whole as a result of the particularly perverted ones, yet you don't see people coming down so hard on the Japanophile crowd, with its own share of anime fags, cosplaying otaku (== fursuiters), loli tentacle porn fanatics (== hyperphallic herm horse fanatics), and pasty white guys who desperately want to deny their heritage and become Japanese themselves (== hardcore anti-human furries). Why? Oh, because underage anime catgirls getting raped with tentacles are perfectly acceptable, but as soon as she has more characteristics than just ears and a tail, suddenly it becomes this horrible, horrible thing. Bullshit. Hell, I could make pretty much the same parallels to any internet subculture, but somehow furries are so much more evil and subversive. Bitch, please.

Technically, I'm a furry. Because I like anthropomorphic works. Like, Bugs Bunny and such. And a lot of furries, though not all, like sexual artwork of humanistic animals. I like some of that stuff too.

Other furries take it further and like fucking balloon animals. Or "plushies" (aka Stuffed Animals.)

Some like wearing "fursuits". Some like fucking each other IN fursuits. Some like wearing fursuits and fucking stuffed animals.

Some roleplay online that they're animals, or humanistic animals. Some go so far as to meow and talk about their "paws" and what not. Some take it so far as to ask you to "paw" something over to them, rather than HAND it over.

As with any sort of fandom, many people take things WAY too seriously, and WAY too far.

There are the "lifestylers" who are convinced that, despite appearances, they're actually, say, a walking, talking, bipedial fox boy. Many furries are also gay.

That said, I'm not gay. I'm married. I don't wear a collar, ears, or a tail. I don't own a fursuit, and I don't sleep with stuffed animals. I fuck my wife, not my pets. I don't take things too far, though I know many who do. Which is sad.

Many "furries" seem to fixate on the one fandom. To where "normal" people are "mundanes" because they don't understand the fandom. And other fandoms, say, Trekkies, are looked down upon because that's just a TV show, while being "furry" is considered a "lifestyle". Which is sad.

I think it's retarded to take the view that all furries are evil, unclean bastards, because there are people in all fandoms that take things way too far.

Then again, it's gotten so bad I don't call myself a "furry" anymore. I consider myself "fur-friendly", or "furry-friendly", sort of the way you can be "gay friendly" without actually being gay.

(Beastiality is NOT a symptom of being a furry, though there are some out there that think it's acceptable. Since they're walking fox-boys, why can't they fuck their dog? Right?)
