Anyone in your family know you're a furry?

@#$%ing Scrawny!
If I ever told my parents they would FLIP! At least my mom would... Hmm... dad would support mom regardless of what he thinks and the rest of my family is just as hard-lined... So I would be, without a doubt, disowned. :(
And I'm not even sure that I'd consider my a self a full furry, I don't do suits (as of yet anyway). But I do like drawing anthro a bit, and I've liked stories about people who can turn into animals since I was, I dunno, five?
Maybe after I move out (and get a life :p) I'll consider delving further...

I still don't think I could ever tell my parents. I don't think I could tell my few IRL friends that I'm a furry. I think so far... I've only mentioned that I was one in a conversation with 2 of my online friends, and one wasn't paying attention and by now, the other one probably forgot. So basically, nobody knows but me, and everyone here on FA, which I have still to make friends with anyone here.

My family is all classic Disney cartoon fans. Needless to say, they like my anthro art. I think my parents would disown me if they saw me drawing furry porn. but I'd disown myself for drawing any porn. It's just a weird concept to me, even though it's your bread and butter, some of you XD

^That seems a little closed minded, but I must admit I know a few people like that. Another person I know says that his art, and characters are an extension of himself, and therefore drawing porn of those characters would be like sending out naked pictures of himself for hundreds of people to jack off to...

Still seems odd to me =P

I totally just draw adult crap to pay my rent. XD I'm more or less neutral to it. But man, if my family knew, they'd go apeshit. A couple of my friends know, but only the less conservative ones. I'm not afraid of being turned out (I know them better than that), but I know they'd think differently of me if they knew. e.e;

"Closed-minded" seems a bit harsh to me. People on the internet are always accusing others of being closed-minded. I don't have a problem with people drawing porn, but I don't get my rocks off to it, so I'd basically just be putting forth all that effort for other people's fetish.

Everybody in my family knows that I'm a furry. My mother said I became more outgoing when I started calling myself a furry. I like outgoingness :3. She said I became more random too. In all, I think I made a good decision in telling my family.

If my family knew, I wouldn't be here right now, I wouldn't even be alive, because if they found out I was a furry, they'd know I was gay, and if they new that, they'd have to kill me because it goes agesnt some moral thing or what not. But they don't know, so therefore, I'm Still Alive!

The way you worded what you said struck me, sorry if that offended you

I see what you did there.

I haven't directly told them, they have seen my drawings, I think they suspect I am at best, and at worst just think I'm wierd as hell.

my family don't know. and they do'nt have to know what i'm doing here.
being a furry's not a goal, there's nothing to be proud of. being a furry doesnt makes you a philosopher or an artist.
if your family or former friends tells you it's a weird or dumb fetish after you told em what is the furry fandom, it's justified and i share their opinion

What happened, Marodi?
I was on FAF, my brother walked in and i minimised it as fast as i could. I obviously looked suspicious so he was like "what did you just minimise, bring it up again"
I'm just dumb struck im like "ahhhhhmmmm...ok"
Then he goes "Fur affinity, whats that?"
"Ummmmmmm *goes completely red in the face* ...its an art website...its like...i'll show you what i mean"
I then embraced myself to show him a picture of my fursona on DA
*opens up DA*
"I know what DA is"
"Ummm...WELL YEAH ITS JUST LIKE THAT!"
then he left lol
...CLOSE CALL!

Erm, I know I'm new to the fandom, but I'm curious as to why so many furries seem to be "ashamed" of being furry...

Maybe "ashamed" isn't the right word for it...but people seem to think that by telling others what it is, would make them automatically hate you...

I'm fine with what it means to be furry...I've told a few others, even perfect strangers about it, and they haven't even blinked...

For one thing, I read that the fandom has been around since the 80's or something...according to others it's been around far far longer than that...

Especially for those furries who feel a connection to animals...for those who love animals, and love anthropormophism...

It's been around for a very long time...and even celebrated...and in some cases...worshipped...

Just my opinion on this...but by either lying to others, or denying it to them that you are part of the fandom, and/or are furry...you are only justifying their ignorance of it, and you are in fact agreeing with them that it's "wrong"...

I've seen people on websites and forums who say that being furry is just wrong...I could say that about a lot of things...most of them ARE wrong...

You know what? I've also read that furries are more open minded, more compassionate, more in touch with their feelings, more friendly (the list goes on)...It's certainly true of myself, and of the few others I've spoken to since I learned of the Fandom itself...

I get these forums sent to me by email when a new message is posted...and I just got one, on this very topic...saying something like being furry is nothing to be proud of...not a goal...not even worth it...wrong and stupid...
It seems to not be here now...or my browser isn't refreshing...I don't know what being furry means to all of you...but I know what it means to me...

And yes...it IS something to be proud of...

Anyhoo...
