    I'm a (borderline) furry because humanoid but not fully human fantasy races and sci-fi races are awesome and hot. F'yeah forbidden interspecies romances; when I was a little girl I remember playing pretend that one of my toy horses fell in love with a toy tiger. F'yeah 'people' with wings or tails or instincts to do animal things like make a nest; can't tell you how many times young me pretended to be a bird or dragon and 'flew' around the playground with my arms out. Also beastpaint is pretty cool, I was always a fan of Halloween and masquerade balls long before I heard of furries.

    In all seriousness, if this surprised you, the fandom will put you into cardiac arrest. I've seen weird shit even before this site. You would be surprised what you can find when (Army + Furry) * Stereotypes / My explanation of the fandom + yell at ALL of the drill sergeant who hates us = Your Life.
    the two main reaosns are personal and i wont tell them here because some people i know IRL might read this but you can ask me personally (P.S. just to kill everyone's theory, its not anything sexual im hiding)
    the secondary reasons is well fursuiting looked really cool
    people here are much nicer
    i like anthromorphic art
    If IRL friends see this website, chances are they won't care about your being a fur :v

    Because the community here accepts me for who I am. I didn't really know about furry stuff or do furry things whe I was little like other people. I just found it, it interested me, so I became one. I am an itrovert IRL, but here I can talk to anyone and I don't get uncomfortable. I can express my opinions and not be afraid of being made fun of or not being accepted. And it is here that I feel the most at home with others and myself.

    I was referring to beastpaint as the activity of people painting spots and stripes and such on their skin with body paint and/or makeup, not a specific site. However body paint commonly goes along with porn, which is fine with me. I'm a fan of erotica aka 'quality' porn. I don't particularly care if that causes you to not respect me. *shrug*

    Because anthropomorphic art is awesome in my opinion. The community is great here and full of genuinely nice people.It also gives some motivation for me to better my drawing skills.

    Yep, this thread has been done, I think I've even done one long in the past.

    Anyway, simply, I chose to be furry.

    I have many reasons why I chose to be furry. First, the people, I've met hundreds of various people in this fandom from across the world and there are not many I dislike. My interests in anthropomorphic animals. I always had such an interest, even before I got the internet, then a friend dropped some furry porn in front of my eyes accidentally when he was showing me his hentai torrent download, some pictures from sexyfur were in the torrent. But back then I didn't know such a fandom existed. That was until I started searching furry online. I found out a lot from furcadia back in 2005, as much as it was and is a piss poor game, it did teach me a lot and I did find out a lot about furry from playing it.

    I first heard about 'em last January, thought "Huh, interesting", and mostly forgot about it for several months. Then I found out a friend (rather acquaintance) is one, and I looked into it more. I eventually stumbled across Coopertom's Youtube channel and got hooked.

    Translation: just because.

    I got bored one night and found out about the fandom, since I had seen some at an anime con and had a few Skype friends into the fandom. And that is basically how I got into it.

    I'm in it because the fandom's fun, for the art, and the community......well the decent part of it that is.

    Always been into anthro art, cartoons and things that pertain to it. Historical importance and really just anything to do with it has always fascinated me. Some of my friends are furries too, but im not into the porn or the yiffing. Suiting is a possibility if i can get some time away from my days where i am busy.

    Just another hobby that i can enjoy in my off time.

    Anthropomorphic animals allow me to add more depth into my writing.

    Also, the community and some of the art.

    I thought to myself "so, I could be called a furry, like anthropomorphic animals, and be part of a community. Why the hell not?". Nah, just kidding, I'm a furry just because I like anthropomorphic animals and didn't mind the lable. The community is full of kind people, but way too many serious creeps make up a percentage of the population.

    More freedom in literature, and artwork.

    I've also noticed furries seem less inclined to censor themselves or their interests, which is a trait I strongly respect.

    There are nutcases which provide endless amusement.

    Impulsive the youth, it drives them to prove they know what's better.
    But we know the truth, the wisdom is proof it comes much later.
    Falling down is a pain that's earned. Knowing now, it was all lessons learned.

    I love all forms of art and the anthropomorphic/furry art really intrigues me. The combination of humanoid and animal qualities look beautiful and give a whole new aspect to the art world. Plus in a sense furry art has evolved from the original anthropomorphic images that date back to the paleolithic period. :3 Sorry I'm a total nerd when it comes to art.

    I've simply always admired animals. In my upbringing I was surrounded by pets and disney, and so now that theres' artwork available pretty much any time. However I think the nail in the coffin was a picture I saw titled ''kids'' ... and it was a child wolf being scolded for ripping apart a small child sheep, which the sheeps mother was in horror at the sight of her child dead on a cross.

    Because cuteness, mostly. It's also nice to belong to stuff, and furries are sometimes not horribly judgmental.

    I'm in it for the fashion; collars and tails and ears are hawt.

    I don't wear them though, because then I'd look like a retard.
