The Furry Fandom is a community for fans of anthro characters. It exists to provide a space to share art, fursuit, create build on alter-egos or 'fursonas', and it's sort of an open-minded, escapist environment for its members that still retains a sort of geeky intellectualism that keeps it from getting crazy.I think it would be better to say that the fandom itself is not a fetish, but there are fetishes within it.
I hate furry pride, furries think it's all fun and games but then some one comes up and hates on them and suddenly all the furries are shitting on everyone else just because furries can't accept the fact that there "might be some tiny" problems with their fandom.
At least bronies stand up for themselves instead of putting other fan bases down, and at least they try accepting the fact they have problems instead of putting shit on others.
Instead, furries think their fandom is perfect and if anyone dares state a problem with furries, they just go into a butthurt rage.

"Being a Furry" means being a fan of anthropomorphic characters, and participating in the community.
Furry Fetishists are a subset of this community, comprising the ones that got into the fandom because they find anthro characters more attractive than humans. It is difficult to measure what percentage of the fandom these comprise, as they are often dishonest about it. This is the primary fetish within the fandom, and the other types of fetishes among furries are mostly auxiliary to this one.
That's true, but it WILL be a coming out of sorts when I try to get my parents to take me to a furconvention. I get what you're saying, though.
It will be a...reveal of sorts as its a part of your interest they don't know about. When I fist started drawing Furries, I showed them all to my parents and today I'm embarrassed thinking about it due to the kinds of things I drew.
What exactly did you draw?
(Kind of regrets asking question)
I don't want to go into it but I did get some harsh resonances from my family when I told them I wanted to go to this con, and I had to explain what it was about. :>
Its never been brought up since. :X
So by harsh resonance it was basically frowned upon? I'm assuming you didn't get to go to the con :/.
So there was no possible way to bring furries to them in good terms? What kind of reaction did you receive when you said you wanted to go this furry convention?(which one by the way, just curious)I'm still going to the con, more on my own accord though I guess. Its this December and I can buy the plane ticket myself if I need to. :S
"frowned upon" sort of yeah, it was strange. ;A;
