And THAT is the original reason for this thread... to make sure I WASN'T offending anyone
People will get offended over the slightest things, it's just life.
Quote from my grandma: "There will always be people who love you, and there will always be people who hate you."
Quote from Kurt Cobain: "I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not."
Well, SJW Furries aside.
Smells Like Team Spirit!
Well, I wont :^)
That's fine by me... I think the gist is to just accept it already. I guess I'm a Furry? That feels so weird to type
That's always a funny feeling. It pretty much comes down to how you define yourself. I had the opposite situation. Where I wanted to be a furry but I didn't know how. Until I realized there was practically nothing to it.
It's just not a description I ever foresaw following my name... "Hi, my name is Joe, and I'm a furry!"
At least I can honestly say that the art is worth it, though
Well don't worry, that feeling will wear off. Whether or not you accept it. But if you do, you might want to enjoy it while it lasts
Been there, done that, I think the first person I told that I was a furry was my bloggy bro, turns out he was one as well.
Now we talk about furry shit in front of our parents cause they have no idea what a furry is.
We're talking about a family that doesn't approve of my YouTube channel because the don't know what YouTube is... why do I get the feeling that they would have the same reaction, and then it would get worse when they actually learned about the fetishes of some furries? They're the type to assume that the worst of a community is the average of the same community. No offense, but if I roll with it, my family is nonethewiser
Honestly, though. Take someone already having something of an identity crisis, and then tell them "oh, btw you're a furry" when they were never expecting that. I'm surprised I've handled this as well as I have thus far
Don't overthink it - in the end, it's a hobby, not a religion or sexual orientation. Enjoy the fandom the way you can and drop out of it if you feel like it, no rules at all.
I know, but not many others outside of the fandom do. Trust me, the only reason I didn't think that before is because I try not to judge anything I don't know... and I learned a little bit by specifically doing research so I COULD understand the fandom better
If your parents find out, just act like it's something normal. If they look into it too much and find the people with fetishes, just say they're a minority and don't represent most of the people. It's relatively easy to say you like the art, and not the fetishy stuff. Compared to being a Therianthrope, that is. People like me are weird, we actually think we're non-human, albeit in a non-physical way.
And once again, I am schooled by a situation that outclasses my own in every aspect... You do have a point, though
Life is full of bullshit and nice things. People are arrogant by default, even when they try to be humble. Like everyone said, don't worry too much about whether or not you're a Furry. Know what you enjoy and enjoy it in spite of what other people think.
What else are you into?
Don't ask for answers to the doors that you do not wish to see
I mean like shows, or games, or books...
Not fetishes ( -_-)
You know what I mean
