Does the fandom make people gay?

The fandom can broaden your horizon *cough cough* And make you into really weird stuff.
But after all these years I'm still not into girls at all. So personal perspective I'd say no, it doesn't turn you gay.
Yes.. it can't turn you gay if you already were in the first place. ☺

Why quote me tho? xD

Anyway, I only think someone can turn or discover their bi side. I don't care if it was always there or not. But turning outright gay and dropping your interest in the opposite sex? Nope.

Because it's 7AM local time and you're a spiffy, awesome user here on the forums. ☺

Actually though - I thought you were a dude.. and I probably should've checked your avatar first, (before I replied to your post). My bad.
Ah! Makes sense this way. xD won't blame anyone, my ava is showing a male OC and my nickname isn't feminie I think. (Because it's like Gawain.)

It would be cool if it did. As in just seeing it. Say, a few fursuiters go through a busy mall...and BAM, everyone is gay! Or somebody sees a furry image on the web. WHAM! Gay! If you watch Zootopia: POW! Gay!

This could be great fun : )

I did my master thesis on internet cultures back in 2012 - via some polls I did I found that it appears almost 30% of the furry fandom is homo or bi-sexual.

Makes sense honestly: the furry fandom has always had a reputation of being very inclusive (some that is being challenged these days, sadly) so it stands to reason that a lot of LGBT people sought the community of the furry fandom, for they knew that they wouldn't be judged.

not to mention it was very anonymous back in the day and someone could create a female character to 'experiment' and stuff. But I said this before, there were plenty of artists I assumed were straight but they were already expressing themselves sexually, so they're like 'why the heck not, here's a bunny dude'

but I think a big aspect of it was the anonymonity, and you could like be anonymous but make a character with aspects of yourself that you liked, even

° counter point° could the furry community lead one who is gay into bi/straight sexual activity?

as far as I'm aware there is no scientific backing for the ideat that anything can change your sexuality

but teens experimenting? oh that I'm sure there's plenty of - they haven't necesarily nailed down what they're down with yet

Maybe not furry community per se, but I personally know at least one guy who used to identify as gay, who moved over to bi and then pan after macking with a chick he met through furry mutual friends?

Also met at least one gay furry dude who was dating a poly-I-believe furry chick, some fifteen years ago or thereabouts (geez, her kids must be adults now, that's so weird to think about).

I think that depends on whether you're talking about the underlying wiring changing, or whether you're talking about the framework and labels we impose on that wiring changing. Because I'm pretty sure I've seen mentions of some studies that look into the latter, and I absolutely believe that that changing over time and in response to experience and exposure to new ideas, cultures (in a very broad sense of the word), and concepts is possible, based on personal experience.

I met a 'mostly gay' furry guy on Telegram (he'll remain anonymous but just saying I met a guy), it's not like "being a furry" lol, there's sometimes pressure for gay guys to pretend they've never had some occasional desire for a woman because they don't want to be ostracized because of it. I dunno maybe though he's in the furry community and there's so much sexual diversity he felt ok to say it?

I keep saying this, in spite of the weird fetishes some people may not like, there's a lot of leeway to feel free to say some essential sort of orientation/gender stuff
