Are the furry stereotypes true?

Aetius

Yes they are all true, every single one of them.
 
Isn't it for some people also "Look at me look at me I'm special!"? It's the only reason why people would admit to being zoophiles, na'vikin, and softpaw readers. It happens in anime too, except more underground because there's less hugbox.

I agree with this, I've seen it happen a few times.

One of the few mostly true stereotypes is that furries seem to not like drawing people, at least from what I've seen on main site. I realize FA is a furry site, but still. If people want to get far with art, they shouldn't specialize in one genre. They have to be comfortable drawing things they might not be interested in.

I hate drawing people mainly because I suck at them. But I'm still practicing. :U

No it's subtleties. Your editor gives you the assignment to write about Furrys...

And why do you think that was in the first place? Do you think someone just suddenly thought, "Hey, you know what, we haven't written anything about furries"? No. That story was published, a side-note was made about them meeting on a furry website, no one knew what the fuck a furry was, so then in comes the article. It's in the very first line!

A court case where the two defendants met on a "furry" website has put the spotlight in this little-known world

Did they then rape and pillage this "little-known world" for amusing tales to make it as sensational as possible? No. They actually seemed to do some research and published what is probably one of the most unbiased articles on the fandom you're ever likely to see from a major news source.

Give the persecution complex a rest.

Maybe furries wouldn't get such a bad rep if they didn't spread their emo/yiffy/whatever crap to non furry sites.
I reported so many different furfags on facebook for posting porn on their feed after they added me, tagging me in furfag porn(Good thing I have to approve it first).
It's also sad how many pages there are for "Yiff", interests such as "Pawing off" and those people who put "Cumdumpster" at Furry Sex Club as their job. ON FACEBOOK.
Goddamn, keep that shit to adult sites such as Fetlife or FX.
Also the emo drama they tend to post on all kinds of non-furry forums such as Star Trek Online official forums and other damn places.
Not to mention the people complaining about how they can't go to cons because they don't WANT to look for a job. Also those people who bed for money for food while they spend lot's of cash on artwork and cons.

After years of dealing with emofurs/babyfurs and general other undesirables spread drama all over the communities I used to and the ones I still help run and participate in it gets tiresome. This is why I like FAF, the general people here don't follow the "WE MUST ACCEPT ANYONE REGARDLESS IF THEY CAUSE DRAMA OR SHIT DIAPERS" mentality most furry communities public have. FAF people have the balls to say fuck that shit against terrible terrible people and FAF is more or less sane compared to the rest of the furry fandom.

This should go towards bronies more then furries to be honest. Christ, you DO NOT want to know how many bronies said they are cloppers so openly, turned around and say "I'M NOT A SICK FUCK" and turn around and call all furries sick fucks. Christ at least the yiffers can keep their yiff to themselves better then cloppers can with their clop. But let's not bring them into this topic too much.

I think furries and the accepting everyone thing is them treating everyone equally, which I can see why they would do that, but it does have it's limits.
 
They're true enough to justify their existence. People have adopted these stereotypes for a reason, and they are right to do it.

The squeaky wheel gets the grease, they are a vocal minority. Every group has them. Look at Christians, most are just average people but the annoying cunts get on TV.

Some r true. Not all of us r dogfuckers but basically all of us enjoy yiff and I'm pretty sure anyone that has a fursuit has had a sexual experience in it at least once.

Are we moomin, or are we dancer?
No, not like race or religion. Not like that at all.

Arguing that people are 'right to' project stereotypes that are inaccurate is pathetic. They are epistemologically wrong to do so, and if there's some moral function by which the combined masochism of a group that believes it deserves to be portrayed inaccurately as a motivation to adhear to social standards, it is so contorted from reality that it's clearly just an excuse to motivate mob behaviour.

Reality deserves prominence.

If someone believes most furries to be sex offenders or zoophiles, despite this not being the case, they are not justified.

Nope. Not into yiff and never even thought about fucking in my suit. Never happened, never will happen.

You call yourself a furry, you made a rudimentary fursona, you have a profile on FA....
....and you ask this question?

"Whatever floats your boat." Is that not the philosophy adopted by the furry fandom? That mentality breeds the undesirable behavior that places furries on the lowest rung of the nerd hierarchy. Furries not only enable people to openly draw crude images of vore and pokemon BDSM, but they seem to encourage it. Not all of us reflect the stereotypes, but we are all responsible for them.

Secondly, I don't see it as some great injustice that people who fantasize about animal people are somewhat inaccurately portrayed by popular perception. It's a dumb hobby, and no one is entitled to absolute consideration based on it.

Thirdly, you appear to be very anti-popularity. Did you perhaps wear a lot of black lipstick and piercings in high school? I personally fitted in very well with my peers and was well-accepted. I guess I don't have the same bleeding-heart sentimentality towards outcasts that you do. Different perceptions from different people, I suppose.

Because I've been pushed to leave this fandom. There is just so much hate and misunderstanding.
