Still, this fandom might/not become mainstream. Even if that does happen, it will be unique. Adults who love hugging and squishing plushies and eachother. Adults who let their inner-child come out to play for a while. There's nothing like that anywhere, in any fandom. The Anime fandom for example: I belong to it as well (I used to be more of an "Animeaniac" a few years ago. I just watch specific themed animes. I don't watch long-running series like Naruto, Bleach, Dragon Ball and things like that), and all the "adults" involved in it don't see it as a regular thing. They do it because "Oh I need to fit in a special group just because". They don't actually like it. It's kind of rare to see furries acting like that. Adult people especially. Adult Furries LOVE what they do in this fandom, whatever it may be. They just love it. They feel it.
(Idk if I made any sense. I did try my best but:
- english not my native language;
- i'm feeling so sleepy;
- my brain is starting to shut down.
