Agreed. +1 to you. I don't think being a furry is something everyone aspires to be, but it's fun to be a part of the fandom =3
Yes it is, very much :3 But honestly, i kinda give way with the whole argument, "You wouldn't be a furry without the internet". I mean, just because you don't know what it is, doesn't mean it's not your tastes.
What i'm saying is, if you consider yourself a furry from influences like Buggs Bunny, or like me, video-games like Star Fox, but you don't know about the fandom, your can still arguably call yourself a furry, or get called out on it. Even though you don't have knowledge about it till the future, it doesn't mean anytime before you wouldn't of been able to.
