    *Message: (I accidentally posted in the wrong place before, just went off my browser history. sorry :3)

    Hello everyone! I have had a crazy week and I just wanted to thank you all, from the passive posts, to the active messages. Just to fill some people in, last Sunday my friends and I were on discord just talking about random stuff. but than one of them decided to be an asshole about everything. so, I sent him a bunch of furry porn kuz that stuff wierds him out. mission accomplished, but everyone started calling me a furry, then I took the meme too far by creating a fursona, creating an account here, and actively getting indoctrinated into the community. however, I really liked how the fursona was an extension of myself, and how everyone treated me with some form of kindness and respect. IDK when exactly it was, but I secretly went full furry.

    I really didn't want to reveal it to my friends (still haven't to my family because they think it is a mental sickness when i brought up what furries were), so I just kept on posting here, made a friend, and generally had a good time. but as i looked around the forum, more and more people were saying, "yeah, everyone accepted who i was" and stuff like that. So, Friday night, I asked my friends if they thought i was actually a furry. they all said "no" and it took me at least two hours to build up the courage to tell them. 90% of them accepted it, but the others still call me weird and crazy.

    so, I just wanted to thank you all who encouraged me to do this. for some of my earlier posts, I was completely lying and pulling a prank, and i want to apologize. I really didn't mean any harm, but i still think that it's the right thing to do and tell you all. I am gay, a furry, and proud of it!

    -Encouraging the future generation, Renven

    WOO! I'm a straight fur, definitely still feel like I'm new to the fandom but I'm thankful that people mostly accept it as a not-an-atrocity.

    Straight people is a minority in the Furry fandom. Welcome to the club. :p

    That time when you become a furry as a joke and it goes too far...
    Yeah don't feel bad about not telling everyone that you're a furry, there's nothing wrong with being a furry, but it's just like any other hobby, you wouldn't go to your friends and family being all like:
    "Guys, there's something I have to tell you... I REALLY LIKE HARRY POTTER BOOKS OMGPLZDONTHATEME!!!"

    Well, weren't you warned it's dangerous to fool around with the whole "furry" thing? You thought it's all fun and games, but now they converted you into a gay furry, so you're doomed to wear filthy fursuits and make people cringe, and your only plan for afterlife is yiffing in hell. What have you done, why didn't you listen? :,(

    Ummm, it's not a sexual thing with me, I was gay way before becoming a furry, and I'm really not into the fursuiting thing. I don't know if you were sarcastic or not here.

    By the looks of their profile, they seem to be sarcastic...
    Yeah I was looking at your profile, but I swear it was just to see how long you were a member...

    OK, apology accepted. But I will need some compensation for all the grief you put me through, about fiddy dollars should do it.

    PayPal is fine, but you also have the choice to work it off in hard labor. I want to see you sweat.
