do you wear a collar, and why or why not?

Well sorry, you could have at least made it sound like sarcasm or put the sarcastic :V to drop a hint.

I have "I make monsters as a passion" in my signature and you believed I was truly deriding people who appreciate such? d.batty got it just fine, so it certainly is no fault of mine. No, I will not use an obnoxious emoticon. That is exactly like explaining the punchline of a joke you just told, and I still feel that people need to stop doing it.

No. Species is not relevant, but in a relationship, I dislike the symbolism of being in a subservient position to my significant other. I just... no.

I only wear mine at meets and cons, strictly as a furry fashion accessory. Anyone that sees someone else wearing a collar and automatically thinks that they must be the sub in a perverted relationship is a fucking moron.

Um... I didn't say anything about monsters at all, I was talking explicitly about collars. I have no idea where you got that idea :/

I personally wouldn't wear one, but my fursona does. So if I had a fursuit of him I would wear a collar with it, but not outside of it.

I don't assume that about people with collars, I usually just think they like them for the fashion. I however wouldn't wear one because I know other people might assume things about me.

If I ever got one for some reason I'd probably only wear it at meets and conventions as you said. I think furries would tend to know it's just a furry accessory, and not anything else (unless the wearer says otherwise).

I don't have a collar. I don't see why I would. Collars are worn by dogs, and if one has a dog or canine sona I can understand if they want to strut about with it. As for me, sergals and collars? Nope. I don't even like collars or necklaces irl.

Like I said dude, just a furry accessory in a furry setting. No matter what the species may be. :3

I do own two. A plain black nylon collar, and a chain collar. I wear the chain one on occasion. It's mostly a fashion thing, matches quite well with my standard casual dress of blue jeans, white t-shirt, and black work boots. As for the nylon one, that's for my boyfriend to know...

I wear lots of collors, but I mainly wear them to honor my dogs who have been there in my hard times.

I could make a joke out of this, but I wont out of respect for your righteousness.

Personally, I wouldn't give a damn what people assumed of me if I wore one. I'll do what makes me feel like myself and protect other people who get bullied and made fun of for similar stuff like that. If someone has a problem with it, they can stick it up their ass. And there's a 95% chance I am going to wear one in the future, so I'll be expecting things like that to come.

I don't have one, but maybe I'll get one some day because you know shrimp.


I wouldn't wear it in public though. I'd be afraid people would see it and say, "Oh, that girl's a sex toy I can dominate."

I'm not an animal, nor do I desire being treated like one, but I'm looking at the little furball which will be attached to my in-progress collar. I don't want a collar to become closer to an animal form, but simply because I like collars and the idea of having one, human or not.

I suppose you could call it a collar. My fiance and I modified choke chains and I wear the promise ring he gave me forever ago on it since my job doesn't allow me to have anything on my hands. I have several tattoos and visible piercings though, so most people don't think me having a chain choker necklace is anything new. I actually get compliments from regular people thinking it's cute. I wouldn't really call it a collar though even though originally it was one.

Dragons don't even wear collars.

But IM a dragon kind of and I'm looking forward to wearing a collar. So yes, some dragons do wear collars :p

I don't like things around my neck, it makes me uncomfortable. Dragons don't even wear collars anyway so I'm not too concerned.
People don't have to wear sandals with socks yet they still choose to.

Yeah, maybe yours does. I guess the collar is just a general furry accessory.

Very true, but when I generally think of dragons, I don't think of them as wearing collars. That's just me.

I want to, but only in private. Which is awkward for me seeing as I live with my parents... and don't have a dog, so have no excuse to have a collar....
 
i like wearing collars.. for some reason it gives me a sense of... security? i dont know the exact word.. but i love collars, i feel so awkward when i dont wear one. XD
