If given the choice would you become a permanent anthropomorph?

    What a tough question... o.o if there were other people who did the same thing, I would definitely do it :) however, if I was the only one... I wouldn't know what to do :\ tough decision! Maybe I would, but I don't know ._ .

    Probably. Presuming we're not talking uncanny valley.

    Would it just be restricted to animals? Because I can think of a lot of other things I would rather choose to be if I could permanently change my form. It'd be nice to shed the social weight and stigma behind such ridiculously loaded subjects as race, gender, age and all their attendant nonsenses by becoming a living humanoid object. I mean, honestly, who is going to bother a trumpet peron, a sunflower person or a telescope person about that stuff? That'd be like berating a lamp for not looking -insert anything here- enough. Humans are kind of odd, they find the weirdest things to nitpick and don't let the subject die until the theoretical horse has been beaten ad nauseum. How many theoretical horses have valiantly subjected themselves to this rubbish? When will we take a stand against such flagrant abuse of imaginary equines? *Shakes fist.*

    That said, it'd have to be a pretty perfect world for something like that to happen and not severely alter your life. If we know anything about humans, it's that in a general sense, they tend to fear things they don't understand. There's a good chance one could end up getting hunted down for suddenly appearing quite not-human.
    If I knew that life could continue on largely unchanged, I may go for it. But otherwise, I don't think the benefits would outweigh the drawbacks of giving up a human shape.

    Additionally, even if everything went smooth as silk, there's also a chance you might find you don't actually like the form you've chosen. There might be unforeseen consequences to the change that you didn't realize or couldn't have predicted. Or, you might just miss how you used to look because it's what you know. I can imagine it would feel rather strange to wake up in the morning, go to look at your reflection and not recognize the creature you see in the mirror. You'd get used to it, of course, but there would definitely be some vast differences.

    -Edit- Also if you chose to be a really fluffy animal like, say, a fox- can you imagine how much shampoo you'd go through!? And you'd probably have to invest in a lot of lint rollers.

    As long as I'm allowed to choose the animal and colour scheme.

    I refuse to be neon coloured.

    It heavily depends on what the options are.
    What world is this possible in? Clearly not the one I currently live in. If so, are the other people also given this choice? How unique the chance of getting this offer is? Do you have to pay for this, e.g. you agree to become a half-human half-animal, but are automatically marked as a probable psycho and sent away from your "normal" friends and family?
    Can it be really be any morph of anthro? Will it affect only my appearance or some sorts of unhuman abilities are also provided? If yes, where are the limits - eagle eyesight, shark scent, pokemon powers, milennial dragon magic?

    ...left aside all these questions, if this comes only for my body - then probably yes, but I doubt it could have made me really happier than I already am.
