So then you would agree that putting furry on the same level as LGBT is also bullshit?
As far as general hardships and civil rights struggles? Yes, I would. It was never illegal to pretend to be a teenage raccoon or look at porn or wear tails and such. Not in America, anyway. However, that does not mean someone's discovery and enjoyment of furrydom would be insignificant. That's what I was talking about- the significance of the discovery and the culture. I was never suggesting we faced the same kind of persecution and legal disenfranchisement that LGBT people have and still do.
