My dog told me that he wanted to get a job and drive a car and have a last name.

I ate him.

My neighbor admitted to me that he was a furry.



I shot him dead.

Tried telling my mom in '09 but she didn't know what the fuck I was talking about (Furry fandom isn't really very well known outside of North America), I explained what it was to my sister too but I suspect she didn't give enough of a shit to remember

More or less everyone knows I'm a furry except my grandparents, mostly because they're very... "If it doesn't make money or teach you a trade it's not anything you need to do or care about" minded.

Nope never told anyone, and i dont plan to. Its not something anyone needs to know, if they did they are only going to have some not accurate interpretation of the whole thing think of me differently. There isnt any point in telling anyone.

Why does everyone feel the need to explain to all their friends and family they are a furry?!

Also to the poster who claimed they told their friends their fetishes; WHY?!

I have yet to tell any of my friends or family about my furry hobby. But one day I was chilling with a couple friends, talking about woomerns and what not and I'm not sure how it came up but one of my friends said something about furry, looked at me then asked you're a furry, right? The other friend asked what a furry was and the first replied "they're people that like to dress as animals and have sex". There was a laugh among us 3 and then the subject changed. I'm sure he was trying to goad me into debunking his explanation while "outing" myself but I know his game. I know it well. Keep it secret, keep it safe.

I honestly don't know. But I mean. It's like saying " I'm an avid train collector" or some other hobby.

so I mean it sometimes comes up in a conversation when people ask what you like to do. It also helps explain the whole why I like to make costumes.

As has been stated before furry means different things for different people. For some its a constructive hobby and for others it's not. Frankly it's not what most people would consider 'normal.' Unless its an integrated part of your outward daily life I see no reason to bring it up with people. I sort of think it would social and professional suicide.

The ones who care are the lifestylers.
Nah I'm with Dokid. I want my closest irl friends to know I'm a furry because furry things are some of my big hobbies. I want my friends to know what I do just like I want to know what they do, see?

My closest friends know I'm a furry and because they are internet savvy they are ok with it. They know I'm not one of the dirty, obnoxious, or nieve furs. They joke about me all the time. Whenever I pick anything animal related they're like "There he goes doing his furry thing." The key is not making a big deal out of it. If 'coming out' is a big deal to you it will probably put normal people off.

None of them care. I didn't tell them. They actually asked me.
What/how did the ask? I'm curious.

Oh well I just do my own thing and of course being my friends they just asked "oh hey. Why do you like drawing animals/making costumes/people animals/etc." And I explain that I just really like doing this and it makes me happy. Of course if they question more I just say "well yeah I guess you can call me a furry. You know. Those people on the internet who like this kind of stuff"They usually just accept it. Some of my more internet savvy friends poke fun at me once in a while. But they really think it's cool and fun and often volunteer to help me make things or wear them.For family members they want to know why. Being my family and all. And my SO wanted to know because he has a friend, who made an awesome mewtwo costume, is one as well. All in all it just came out in normal conversation. I don't just randomly bring it up.

Do people really feel the need to tell people? I've never really felt that it was such an important topic to bring up.

Some people have this as a secret just bottled up and it's just ready to burst.

It's really not an important topic to bring up. Like I said above I'd rather tell my closest friends, at least, because furry is a hobby of mine. Just like if I were really into wrestling or something I would tell them. I also prefer to be honest and if I come right out and tell them "Yah I'm a furry, whatever." there won't be any awkwardness later on.

my best friend's favorite hobby is trolling furries on YouTube, sometimes i do think about telling him to see his reaction...

I've told a few friends, but none of my family. My friends all saw it coming, so they don't mind at all. My most recent ex is also a furry, so of course he doesn't give a shit.

No wait I hate you
so how many of you have actually told your parents/friends/anyone in real life about you being a furry?
what was their reaction? are they okay with it?
I don't directly tell them, but they know I'm a weird-ass animal freak :v

I don't think the term "Furry closet" is appropriate, as being a furry is not a sexuality.
However, if you are asking if people know that I am a furry... It is not a secret. Some people do know that I like anthropomorphic animals, but they don't know what a furry is, because as said before, it is not a known hobby outside North America.

There's already a thread for this somewhere, but I suspect it is old. It had a poll though.
Here it is. The last post is from 4 months ago.

Because I don't feel the need to hide my interests from anyone. Besides I like to have my furry art on my walls, and if you assume porn, your an idiot.
