Against The Grain: Furs Who Break The Stereotypes

Many Bad Puns Doth Apply
My fursona is a brown donkey, and I'm not an ass unless you richly deserve it. o: That and I have no desire or want for romance at all (Completely against the grain from the stereotypical fur), I have no "speshul" powers or abilities beyond my own physical limits, and I'm not in highlighter colors.

.... I'm not sure if half of that pertains to this thread, but those are some common stereotypes I've seen that I'm not apart of. xD

Yes, my fursona was taken from a video-game character (and Lucario seems to be a popular one nowadays) but that doesn't bug me. I made him look a little different with more ahir and a jacket (not shown in my avatar) and I don't think many of them are rock-stars.

ish a blue skunk
I'm not sure how to prove that I'm a mold breaker. I'm a skunk/cat. Who is blue. My fursona is me. I don't change my personality to play within my fursona, my fursona is myself. Complete with love handles. I don't spray, and I have a pretty interesting reason for it. To make a long story short, it hurts to do so, so I don't. I don't yiff with others, only my boyfriend.

I'm quite sure I'm pretty self molded, but I could be wrong.

maybe i'm green, but i haven't come across any of the beltandzipper types, although i know what youre talking about. anyway, i guess my fursona is kind of stereotypical, since it's a tall, muscular dog, but then again, how many tall, muscular people do you come across who aren't overly pretentious and showoffy, and even shy?

Can you please explain what a Sergal is, and where it came from? Google tells me nothing, and it's not in encylopedia dramatica!

It's not really easy to find information on Sergals, there isn't even an article on WikiFur (at least not about Sergals in general).
They have a raptor-like anatomy, but are covered in fur, the shape of the hard is often described as shark-like.
It's a bit hard to describe in words, this is imo the best example for a Sergal:

A few information can be found here...not very much, though.

wait what? wolfs are supposed to be ultra special? only thing really special about my charecter is the missing part of his ear. Its the result of a gal nibling while I was eating something heavily ladden with pepper. (used to have some of teh junk you described but I dropped it after I realized ti was all kinda silly and stupid.)

Although you do slightly talk in 1337, which I haven't seen in ages, I was able to understand what you were saying. To an extent, you contradicted yourself when you said you weren't a sex fiend, but have a ton of porn. See where I'm going with this? XD

Perhaps he merely enjoys porn, but he himself and as his character doesn't participate in senseless and random acts of debauchery? Just trying to make some reason of his phrasing.....

Assuming that you've had a high enough I.Q. to read the thread title and not end up with your eyes glazing over, allow me to begin.

There are certain trends you have no doubt noticed in the fandom - trends which can immediately identify the species of one's fursona. Sometimes it's not even the way a fursona acts, but rather the way said species in drawn. As bluntly as possible, I will address them.

Foxes are sexfiends who can never get enough cock and tend towards loose sexual morals. Chances are, the animal taking it up the rear from someone else is a skinny fox, often with a silly expression on his face.
They are the backbone of the fandom and chances are if someone knows a furry it is highly probably that it is a fox. They have little interest in anything aside from the next yiff. Usually gay.

Dragons are ridiculously dramatic to the point of being hilariously overblown and replete with new-age psychology buzzwords such as Chi, mental entergy, 'magick' and all that fun stuff.
Loves high fantasy and sword-and-sorcery and such. They take everything SUPER SERIOUS and attempt to claim spiritual connection to real live dragons that only they can see.
Are usually Otherkin and highly delusional. They like vore, hyper, and enjoy macro. Their sexual appetite is bottomless, rivaling foxes.
Often they are goth and/or rather GRIMDARK, and if they wear clothes it's usually BELTAN ZIPPAR* type clothes with more buckles, belts, straps, and zips than a Final Fantasy video game. Inclined towards gayness but more often than not they are hermaphrodites.

Wolves are almost always GRIMDARK and loners who are mystical and super speshul in some way, whether it be because of magic, technology, or whatever. Can do no wrong and are always hailed as being paragons of good - which allows for lots of angst with their badboy ways, which wolves crave. They enjoy the BELTAN ZIPPER fashion as well, with an overt love of blood and wanton violence to up their bad-assery.
Usually can be found with foxes attempting to relieve their ANGST by pushing shit up said vulpine's ass so far that both eventually forget what they were wangsting over(they are usually gay if this did not imply it heavily enough). They are usually demons or gods or angels or such.

Not all furries are like this, I'm well aware...and so I'd like to hear from those who have original characters - maybe species that aren't the norm and are widely known.
These are just a few stereotypes, and I could go on for pages and pages about the stereotypes for just these three in detail, let alone of the others(such as horses being incredibly virile, to the tune of being able to fill a gallon container).
Maybe you're a fox who's big, muscular, and stands up for himself? Or you're a wolf with a pleasant attitude and a carefree, bon-vivant personality. If your fursona doesn't adhere to the burgeoning expectancies of the community, then please share the ways you're above the masses here.

*BELTAN ZIPPAR: Clothes with an excess of belts, straps, zippers, and such.

Like so:

Lol... i think i had enough IQ to understand it ^^

But...
Dragons are ridiculously dramatic to the point of being hilariously overblown and replete with new-age psychology buzzwords such as Chi, mental entergy, 'magick' and all that fun stuff.
WTF
Dragons are never ridiculous! And i don't insist on Chi, mental energy or magic...
Their sexual appetite is bottomless, rivaling foxes.
*grinning* Ok, maybe that could be right... :cool:

This part i hadn't understand completely but the part i understand isn't right (at least for me)...

I don't think that all dragon furrys are like you've written...
Or i simply not meet enough of then, but evry dragon furry i seen is quite ok...

But if you are generally against stereotypes, im on your side!
Vive la Resistance, Revolution and every crazy thing else! ^^

I knew someone was going to say this sooner or later since scrutinizing the furry community is kinda srs business

which is why I was hesitant to post this at first, but eh

I probably fall slap-bang into the middle of the stereotype of cats being arrogant, self-centered and completely ignorant of the feelings of others.
But I pull it off, because I'm so god-damned wonderful.

My character LOOKS LIKE a dog but isn't really one.
And he's straight.
But I should say I made two Sols. An original one and a modified one, made for a seperate not-serious page, which happens to be my FA one.
The 'modified one' was... modified solely for personal fetish purposes.
(No, he doesn't has 5-foot long you-know-what or anything like that, I like keeping certain limits)
I'm not homophobic but homossexualism breaks my... dunno the english word.. pleasure? As well as a lot of other things do. So Sol has none of them.
I didn't really work hard on the modified Sol, so if he matches any stereotypes I don't care really. But I don't know many anthro/furry artists/personas I like, actually they are less than 10, because until now I never really had that much interest, so I assure you I didn't intentionally copy anyone's...

Belts and zippers... sounds like Tetsuya Nomura... -_-

But well, I could care less about what people do to their characters. It's theirs, they do what they want, modify as they want. I don't care for the originality. It's not like I Role Play for real anyway.
