    What would You change in the Furry "Community"?

    Well, that's your opinion, I guess. I also dislike voring and shemales, etc -- but it's hard to judge people when my own fetishes aren't very "conventional". I wish people could just be tolerant and not kink-shame, tbh ^^

    What would You change in the Furry "Community"?

    While I would also love to see more diversity in our midst, keep in mind that practically nobody cares about your ethnicity or gender in a community as 'weird' as this one. Both guys and lasses are accepted with open arms! Same goes for whites, blacks, hispanics, asians, etc. The only reason we...

    1 - By "Fat" do you mean to say "obese"? I'm also not very attracted to obese people, but I fail to see how they're a "problem". 2 - Sexuality is not easily definable. I'm openly pansexual on the Internet. Honestly, I haven't encountered a single "pseudo-gay" in my lifetime. This is an honest...

    You hide your interests more often than you'd think. Guilty pleasures have always been around and people have named them that for a reason. We're supposedly adults with an unusual attraction to cartoons (that alone is out of the ordinary), and a specific theme in said cartoons -- aka: an...

    You don't need to "come out" as a furry. It's like coming out as a "weeb" -- it's not your identity, it's a vague description of some of your interests, including anthropomorpholy, animalistic features on humanoid characters, cartoons and art, etc. Just like anime, furry art is very much tied to...

    What would You change in the Furry "Community"?

    You're right, everyone is different. But furries have to push a more "tame" version of their fandom to the media and the "normie world". Same as homosexuality or fauvism, etc. etc. By striking with extreme examples of pornography and weird fetishes, people won't be happy about anthropomorphism...

    Thanks for the advice. And thank you for the praise! I do think my art is gud~ And I do fap to lots of pixel art. Sometimes pixel art can be EVEN MORE arousing than realism, because of the adorableness xD Tiny pixel boobs, who wouldn't want that?!

    A part of me just really wants to tell her and not engage in this secrecy. I doubt she'll be too mad, but I'm not sure. We'll see.

    Very true. Honestly, I go on e621 and go through tonnes of very amateur art, but I just skip it if (from the thumbnail) it's not up to my standards. I'm also not bullying amateur MS Painters, I just wish they'd "try harder" xD

    What would You change in the Furry "Community"?

    Yeah~ Kind of~ But calling it that makes it sound way too serious. Marxism is a movement, Anthropomorphology is barely one. If one day furries begin an artistic revolution, much like Fauvism or Cubism, then I'll be very much inclined to call it an "orientation" or "movement". Right now, it's...

    What would You change in the Furry "Community"?

    Orientation implies a sort of "lifestyle", and, honestly, furries don't have a "lifestyle" aside from the crazy ones. We don't dedicate our entire existence to being furries, unlike homosexuality or, I dunno, Christianity where one is governed by a set of rules, and his lifestyle is deeply fused...

    Ah, indeed, a tough problem. In a sense, I believe that no art should be stigmatized or filtered out, but it's not easy to plow through feces in order to find a good amateur image. Steam is currently having issues with shitty games, where the shop is being utterly drowned in dumb projects made...

    What would You change in the Furry "Community"?

    It's not an orientation. That's like saying "Anime" is an orientation. It's a mix of interests and hobby, and sometimes sexual in nature, but not always. It is not an orientation, sexual or otherwise.

    What would You change in the Furry "Community"?

    I'll quickly throw in an interesting example that's a bit less common: I'm very dependent on mother, as I'm physically incapable of doing MANY things. However, a part of me REALLY wants to explore the sexual side of art, hence why I'm currently working on some delicious smut. But, given my...

    When I was 16, I came out as bisexual to my mom -- it was a childish and unnecessary idea. But "furry" isn't the same thing. Young adults and kids are always quick to jumping onto conclusions and trying to "change the world". Things would be better if they just piped down and bought themselves a...

    As long as we respect each other and value good art, as opposed to shitty MS Paint art with boobs, I'll be happy. Hey, if MS Painters want to post their art somewhere, there should be a group dedicated to it, or AT THE VERY LEAST, not on the front page on FA.

    Hence why it's a bit too fanatic. How can "furry" be a lifestyle? It's going way too deep into "otherkin" theories and all sorts of ideas that harm our community. So I'd rather people just understood that "otherkin" and "obsessed furries" are far from the majority, but an extreme minority.

    Hey, I understand your complaint. A few days ago I found an artist on Patreon who earns about 500$ per month on... very bad yiff drawings (I'm no critic, but it's pretty obvious). The artists I love the most are the ones who are excellent at their work: SFW: Falvie and Hax NSFW: Adam Wan...

    What would You change in the Furry "Community"?

    Why are you pushing this subject? I discuss these things with other people on other forums, not here. Thus why I said "I'd rather stick to art", because the question was about the 'Furry community' and not 'real life ramifications of bad parenting and illegal activities". I don't even remember...
