Furry things you do when bored

I have a heart Seeker.
You can always ignore me.
Or just hate on me.
I like both.

It is not one person. But as a group, oh jeez, I just keep imagining you all hugging in a circle going 'AWWW'.

The universe may be waffle shaped, but that doesn't put you at the centre of it :3

It's more like a group orgy.

I don't even know what thread I'm posting in half the time.

Oh right furry things to do.

Your mother.
She's s hairy beast.

I fantasise about having the furry lifestyle I actually want, whilst other furries parade around me saying 'you're taking your hobby too seriously'.

I wanted the same. But was afraid of being called "one of those lifestyler idiots".

But then I decided I was wasting my life never doing what made me happiest just for the sake of acceptance. I decided my life is the one thing that is truly mine...and that I own my free time and do not need to sacrifice my happiness to someone else's fear and judgement. So I faced my own fear, put on a tail, and took damn charge of my life.

And facing that fear gives you such a charge...such a high on life....once you break through and realize that no one can truly take your happiness unless you allow them to through fear. Be who you are, respect other people's boundaries, and make the most of a life that YOU own.

When did this thread turn into a hugbox? I miss ripping on ppl who shared different opinions on things that don't really matter.

Shame GIBBY LOVE! was shat down.

EDIT: goodness me this was meant for the dating thread. Though it applies here too.

I've been fighting the hate box since January. This change is good...because people are starting to realize that we are, in fact, real people on each end of this communication. People here fear a hugbox because they fear others will either impose on their boundaries or will become tolerant of truly extreme behaviors.

But that's not what this is. This is people being real. And it's refreshing.

We'll agree to disagree on this one. I prefer my hugboxes tongue-in-cheek.

So I have to ask, those of you talking about being a furry "lifestyler", how exactly does it change your life at all? Like I donno exactly what being a furry lifestyler is. I've heard people throw that term around before and when I sat down and tired to pinpoint what exactly a furry lifestyler is I couldn't think of anything.

I sat down to answer you Menty but I drew a blank as well.
Then I realized why.
There is no absolute answer, only answers based on opinions.
So then which opinion is correct?
The answer doesn't mater. It is what you make of it.
And besides all the who are we to decide how one lives their lives?

My opinion would be people who base their day around being a furry. Everything they do, in their mind, has something to do with being a furry.
I think it is a mental being to be a 'furry lifestyler'.
taking the fandom serious at all times.

I probably only base less than 1% of my day around furry stuff (FAF, FA, Comics, etc.) so I'm safe.

Lifestyler can mean different things. The whole idea of it being all furry all the time though is, for the most part, a gross exaggeration.

Its more like....furry isn't just something that you do...but something that you are. It is a more involved...deeper level of appreciation and participation in the ideas and concepts that surround the fandom. Of course, there are varying degrees to which this effect can present itself.

The unfortunate thing here is the idea that its silly to take being furry seriously at all. I take it the same way I do my aviation passion. And perhaps that's the best way to describe what a Lifestyler is.

A furry Lifestyler is someone who feels passionately, in some way, about the fandom and being a part of it. Lifestylers are the ones who consider it a bit more important, a bit closer to home, than just a simple hobby.

I've said many times that I love being a furry. I love the subculture, I love the creativity and ideas and the people I've met through it. There is much we come up with that is so creative as to be fascinating, including all of the discussions on just how anthros would live and interact and coexist or even evolve on this world of ours.

Anything worth doing is worth doing with passion, zest, and fascination. That's what its about.

I donno, that doesn't really sound like a lifestyle or anything. When I hear lifestyle I imagine something that makes vast, sweeping changes to how you live your life. Like say, moving from home to college and living a college dorm lifestyle or something. The way you described it, to me, just sounds like someone more involved in the fandom. I guess in my mind to consider it a lifestyle would mean that the majority of your life revolves around the fandom, which it probably does not.

Edit: I don't mean this to come off as hostile or judgmental btw, it just doesn't really sound like it changes your life enough to be considered a lifestyle.

Lifestyle however has a very broad range. for informational purposes, lifestyle simply means "the way one lives one's life". More specifically :

lifestyle*- a manner of living that reflects the person's values and attitudes

Thus if we apply lifestyle to furry...then essentially...it means that furry becomes a part of the way one lives their life, or, conversely, furry is approached the same way one approaches everything else in their life....it does not hold a reduced value.

When I am interested in something enough, it can become a passion. Hence the comparison to my aviation passion . I am not just interested in aviation, I define myself AS an aviator. It is much more than a hobby, it is a part of my lifestyle, my personal identity, and the way I see myself.

Furry is no different. I am passionate about it, define myself as a furry Lifestyler, and is enough of a part of me that I wish to live my life as close as possible to the way my fursona lives his life.

While that might sound strange...my fursona himself is not strange...he is merely an identity I created based on who I wanted to be but didn't become in the past. I wanted to be confident, wanted to be a airline pilot, wanted to achieve my dreams and approach life with zest and passion.

I made my fursona accomplish this through the use of backstory. Now I follow it and write my own story for my own life. But in the meantime, it feels damn nice to "feel" like him every time I wear a tail. When I act the part of a me that's more confident and less afraid....the IRL me begins to become the same. And that...is very healthy for a person trying to overcome past emotional damage, you see.

Furry horror?! I'm intrigued.

I also browse furry on Tumblr. Most of it is porn, but I like the clean and art based ones.

I recently found cleanfurry blog on tumblr. All the art without the shart!

Well I hope you and similar people leave here soonish.

Before you even came to FAF, people were making friends all the time. Since newfags have been swarming in and being "nice" and "tolerant" there have been so many allowances for absolute blatant retardation.

Such as derailing threads and breaking clear rules all the fucking time just so you can tell each other how in love you all are.

We fucking get it.
