Do you think if furries were outlawed in a country, that you would keep on being one?

I've been thinking about this a lot lately. Let's say a country (like Egypt or Turkey) that has pretty strict internet laws and a conservative mindset, decide to ban furry because they see it as an abomination, and they place laws against furries and people who are in the furry community. Well my question is, would you still keep being a furry in this case? Would you try to circumvent the laws and avoid them to participate in furries activities and still go to furry sites (secret furmeets, maybe?) or would you hide or completely drop the fandom altogether?

Well the fandom is something I love but I dont love it to the point where I would get jailed for it. So I would probably keep it on the DL until I moved to a place where it is not banned.

It is an abomination.

Just like this thread.

Why would a country ever ban an obscure internet based fandom about animal people?

So pretty much North Korea?

And instead of animals, you could only be Anthropomorphic Kim Jong Ils?

Seems like an improvment to me.

China could come around and say they hate the furry fandom because of the depictions of Pandas within

I don't know what the specific laws are, but I know they have a ban on depictions of pandas being killed (or anthropomorphic variations of!), and maybe that extends also to abuse or somat? Or maybe they'd go more crazy and crack down on it (out of all the issues)

That at least is the most likely scenario I can think of, and even that hinges on the idea that one country will go more insane than it already is

Wouldn't surprise me though~

Drugs are usually illegal and people do them anyways. Lots of people.

I'd prolly still be a furry. It's like drugs, people will only want it more if you make it illegal. It's a phychological thing I think.

Now what species would anthropomorphic Kim Jong Il be? I'm thinking koala myself.
(Might as well get something amusing out of this doomed thread.)

Tybby that whole oh noes pandas thing in china is just a rumor that has been debunked before. :C

Then I'd still have the same interests and just not call myself a furry.

The Law would never pass. It's not like the furries are doing anything wrong. :U

Well you're in luck because there is a strong rumor that the next expansion involves them thanks to a leaked copyright by Blizzard. :V

If they make it HURR PANDAZ instead of playing around with feudal china/japan themes I will be oh so upset. :C

Oh wouldn't that just be wonderful? It'd fulfill so many furries' persecution complexes.

Is this like another one of those threads that's core issue is "How big of a furry you are?". Or how...hardcore? That's what it seems like. That said if my country banned furries I would be torn between dismay and relief. Then I'd start an underground market for furry paraphernalia and become rich.
