    Furries on a plane!

    Lots of Colofurs in that photo! Yay!

    Having severe autism

    Functioning labels can indeed be vague and misleading, but we do need some kind of system for denoting the kind of support people need, which is what the new DSM 5 has attempted to do. I've often wondered if what we generally diagnose as or call "autism" might not actually be multiple diagnoses...

    Reasons for tits on an avian

    Duck tits! A-woo-oo!

    Netflix 'Sexy Beasts': A furry dating show?

    This continues to be a solid show to have on in the background while multi-tasking or getting ready for bed. I actually liked a small handful of the contestants as people this time around---the sasquatch and tigress were particularly cute together, and seemed like people I might actually get...

    Was Walt Disney a furry and was Mickey Mouse his Fursona?

    My hot take is that many of the furry-made fursuits of Disney characters are better than the official suits---with the exception of the official Stitch suit, which is adorable.

    Was Walt Disney a furry and was Mickey Mouse his Fursona?

    Was Walt Disney a furry, and was Mickey Mouse his fursona? Basically, yes, and basically, yes. I'd also say Mel Blanc and Chuck Jones were technically furries, too. Oh, and that fascinating photo is unfortunately not authentic, but the origin of the photo is unknown...

    Should animal abuse be punishable by prison time?

    Absolutely. I think we need to take animal abuse and neglect much, much more seriously than we do---for the sake of the animals themselves, and because people who intentionally torture animals have a tendency to graduate to harming people.

    Instant Unfaves

    That seems to be the ethos of Instagram, I've noticed. LOOK AT MEEEEEE LOOK AT MEEEEEEEEEE.

    Why am I so consumed with hatred?

    Ahh, thank you for clarifying! That makes a ton of sense. In these cases, I would say that our best reaction may be to become the change we wish to see in the world---that is, to create the stories we would like to read, hear, or watch; make parodies of these cliched stories in order to...

    Why am I so consumed with hatred?

    I think we all have our pet peeves! First, I find it helps to have people I can vent with. Second, I also find it helps to recognize that the only thing you can really control in your life is yourself, and to take an inventory from there of the variables you can reasonably influence or control...

    What is the single most horrifying piece of writing you've read on this site, and why?

    I'm going to out myself as a snob and admit that most furry writing is not up to my standards, so I lightly skim or browse it at most, focus on what I'm into, and avoid anything that looks like it'll squick me out to no good end.

    Upset by negative species stereotypes

    One thing I've never liked about Redwall and fiction like it is that some species are Good and others are Bad, and some of my favorite species are among the "Bad" ones. Rats get an especially bad rap, when they're awesome. Also, I've been curious about what that creature was in The Suicide...

    [POLL]Has the fandom changed in worse or in better over the years?

    I voted "Better" because I think we're mostly getting better at setting boundaries, calling out bad behavior (albeit with some false positives and false negatives in the mix), and doing PR. But, social media has been a blessing and a curse for sure, and I'm saddened by the more recent political...

    What is the most expensive thing, that you want to get someday?

    I'd like to design my own house and have it built; there are many, many far-away lands to which I'd love to travel someday; and there are some furry artists who are on the pricier side whom I'd like to commission.

    How long are you willing to wait for a commission to be done?

    I've waited about six months for a piece to be completed. I usually wait a month or so before reaching out to bug an artist who's been quiet. All I ask is that the artist keep me in the loop so I can trust that they haven't died or run off with my money.
