Furry...what is it? ::My Opinion::

Furry, where can i start... doesn't really meant to be read, but well xD

This is my History about getting all into this furry, better get your glasses on :rolleyes:

-- At the begining, when i was a child, i used to see cartoons, well all kid does, but somehow, i loved all those cartoons were involved animals #furry# like without knowin what that really was, i remember, when i was arround 11, i watched one DIGIMON episode, i think was DIGIMON 3, where one of the main character, decided to give up his battle, and when he went in a train to return home, he was transformed in a furry...lion...dragon type.. a Fire Lion FTW :p.

Anyway, i loved that episode, i didn't really knew why, until now.

i also remember that most Cartoons/anime i watched, involved Werewolf, Catty childs, and i really liked those eps, i felt like i wanted to be one of them, and i used to play like a werewolf with my dog (R.I.P. T_T)

so well, then my life go on 'til 14, i found something very intresting while doin one Harlqyn Itchyosys project (don't ask, you'll regreat) i found something named Animal hybids and Human animal Hybirds, my friends watched them like "OMG THAT'S JUST SICK, ANIMAL PPL" i didn't i found it that sick, i saw it like, cool, wouldn't that bee cool... i start to research about it, until i found some really sick stuff and then i left it after telling my mom about it, she made me fell like i was sick becouse watching that...

SO.... before 15 i found one episode in Batman, i don't remember with one of the name or # of the serie, anyway, that day, my life was changed, well not drastly, but yeah, was impactant, where a scientist found a way to morph pll into their fav. animal, with a furry look of it, and there was furry and ppl living toghether, until parents start attacking the scientist with demands, etc etc, the young's rebelion and so the scintist had control over all the furry ppl he morph...blah blah blah, i wish i could watch that chapter again.... so yeah, while doin my research of that episode on youtube, i found out something very intresting...

TG and TF, heard of it? bet you do... well after watching all that i felt like, man....... MAN..... im not the only one :p, so yeah, i used to share lot of stuff with my parents, don't blame with with it, and they told me that was sick blah blah blah.... i just ignored them that time, i found lots of stuff, on many pages about Furry, but furry is not really related to TF or TG, but somehow is conected, anyway...

after all that, i started to get more this about furry, more and more... until i reached one point that i was concerned about....

"Is this some kind of Fetish or is it a Game or... what does Furry really is?"

you may want to take a rest before the letters start dancing arround o,o

Yupe, those words came to my head while doing my research, those were my primary questions, and so i figured out that ppl love furry because of Fetishness... and there's alot of TG about furry and stuff, so for a sec i tough there isn't anything special about my... atraction to "Furry" until i get to some pages, where furry was taken like a life style, and i check them, lots of Hypnosis, Fictions, Histories, and then i realised that my "Affinity" wasn't really to all that TG or TF or TG/TF, i felt it could be more about it..... and yep, there is, that;s how i found this fourm, and i hope to learn more about furry than just .. .Sexual stuff if you know what i mean... hehe....

so yeah, i tried to beccome myself i furry, with those hypnosis, i got some links from here b4 joining... and well, i think that is discussed in other topics hehe.

now, in resume, i explained how furry was inside me without knowing what really is, ppl think is sick, other's think is cool to see a Wolfman, and use them for Fanfics, but somehow, i think this is more than that, i searched that humans are related to evrything in and with life... yeah... ::The Force::

so here's the point of all this, my reflexion:

Furry... it can be used as Fetish or not, if not, can be used to recreate yourself but with... something more animalistic... or not o_O

for me:

Furry is part of myself, not the consept of art, im a kinda spiritual guy, Im Geminis btw, I allways knew that i had 2 personalties, one that i can control, and the otherone just got out of me sometimes, with hypnosis and faith, (locked in my meditation room[bathroom xD]) I swear i saw myself in the dark, yeah i meditate with lights off, and i saw myself, with somekind of furr, i can't tell what kind of animal I am...or was?, i wish to be one, but somehow we're destinated to be other.. perhap; i saw myself with a Orange/brown skin, black tail, and my eyes were... well were like all black, my heart stoped and started in 3 secs, and after i freak'd out, I closed my eyes and... well... i think i snap out of the trance... but yeah, i still have that image of in my head... so i named him Nomeko, and after reading more and more about beacoming a furry, i found that the animal is inside us, it can be an animal or object, or symbol, is just a figure of faith to keep your way, I decided to let him..or let it?.. be a furry, I made it be what i wanted it to be, and im teaching him to be like i wish it to, like a real animal, It's like teching an animal like myself o_O, yeah, confusing, but that's what i think furry...

INTRESTING FACT

I had a autist cousin ( autism it's a disease) and he was on a special place on france, i mannage to see him twice, i spoke to him, and he used to look to the sky for long hours, i just stare at him wishing i knew what he was thinking, then... [before the next part, he was a very intelligent kid until 9 years old that he got that "Desease"] he just stand and said something in french that in inglish was something like "Specie Kind Fly high" ... dosn't make sense does it? but well... It was impresive, but afeer that, he looked at me, for 2 secs, and looked to the sky again, he just lay's in the grass the whole day, and if you have food, he gets close to get a bit, and then again, lays... so yeah, he died like 3 or 4 years ago.... and now that im mature, i think of it and i realise... those that means he wanted to be a bird?.... or wanted a cookie, maybe he improvised [LOL] the thig is, that studies say that AUTISM is an advanced brain that creates their own reality, just like having an imaginary friend, is because our minds are open to think and dream, AUTISM is like create another dimension in your head and loose compleate connection to reality, it could be a DESEASE for us, but maybe not for them.... im not a psicology, i just like to know things, im not wise, im a BIT of evrything hehe...

In other words, Those who seaks to beacome or transform in a furry, beware of the dangers of hypnosys, becouse that is give your subcon. to other person, and you may affect your conc. by the way, so if you wish to beacome a furry by hypnosis, you just need to lisent to it once, let it flow trough you, think of it as many times as posible, learn from it, and you shall archive it, like i did.. for 3 secs, i think im afrain of seeing that again, so it;s blocked in my mind... or not? ancient POTIONs dosn't work as real, they're like drugs, want to see and belive yourself as a furry? or have superpowers, Sobredosis of drugs do the work, [im beeing sarcastic btw] so yeah, hypnosis is a non-organic drug, and perhaps the best way to archive that is by meditation and faith...If i can, maybe i'll post a thread about how i archive that moment, and maybe you guys can really meet your furry form... :D

Yay, im saving up this link because i really like this page of my life haha, i shall edit this if more things comes to my head, if you have anything to add, go ahead, if you want just to reply an "Good point" thing, go ahead, opinins shall make this more intresting, not just all about Fetish... [but i gotta say it;s cool, artist out thare, i like your art, keep it up]or other things... so well... that;s all...

and remember...

Shoot, your discovery of furry was all spiritual, and deep, and dramatic.

I was just trolling the Internet and decided they were attractive.

Well, I didn't fully understand all of what you said, but it looks like you're, uh... pretty passionate about it.

I have to throw in my lot with MetroidBob. I stumbled across all the T and A and cocks and thought to myself, "...okay, yeah."

I stopped reading when you said that the Fandom of cartoons is spritual.

Furry shouldn't become more than an interest.

If it does, you probably need psychological help, badly.

I'm a huge fangirl of some shit. Take Metroid for example.
But I'm not sitting there telling myself "I'm totally Samus / Ridley/ a metroid / Mother Brain, in spirit!" because that's just fucking sad and retarded.

Yep, basically.

That's why it all stems from fiction... or IS fiction.

What you're describing isn't "Furry", it's either Otherkin or Therian (can't remember which). And you should have done a bit of proper lurking around here first, cause if you had, you'd have realized that most people here (including myself) are against "Furries" who think it's meant to be spiritual. :/

Yes I second this.

I'm a very spiritual and relaxed person and have discovered that it is bad to want your dreams and fantasies to be real if they physically can't happen.

In this life/world, we can only have them in our mind (the could never happen ones), but if you end up wanting it so badly, you will ultimately make you depressed not being able to have it.

That's just the way it is. It sucks but that's it.

I don't think he's mental or anything. It's just rooted inside of him a bit deeper than any of us. I do think it's a bit weird though. o_O I don't think weird is necessarily bad; it just means "abnormal" and if everyone was normal or average, our lives would be meaningless.

That's nonsense--everyone knows the only legitimate response to socially aberrant individuals is toxic exposure to Zyklon B.

Totally joking? Oh, yeah. In poor taste? No doubt.

Well, it does seem strange to many people but I don't see any difference in this and people that suffer from sexual identity crisis. Maybe there was some kind of cosmic mistake on some people, who knows. On another subject, when op said he saw his fursona, I think that he was talking about mirror gazing. I highly recommend this to anyone that hasn't tried it weather you think it's spiritual or just tricks of the mind, it's pretty fun. Sit in a very dark room, try not to move and gaze into a mirror or at a friend and see what your mind makes up. I did this with my father and started laughing when his head disappeared.

Living in fantasy land IS bad, when reality is the only real world you really have.

People who suffer sexual identity crisis can become the gender they wish.

Furries are a product of fantasy.

It all amounts to living in fantasy, as opposed to being able to do something about how you are dissatisfied with the form you're in.

The nonsensical drama furry.
Socrates would smile at this, he might question this whole furry thing but your Socratic method is pretty darn good, to some extent; a complete elaboration of your story would be very long.
He once said, "The unexamined life is not worth living." Regardless of what said "life" is it's a waste of said "life" to live it without knowing what said "life" is (say that 10 times fast).
I'm a naturalist, so I have no solid explanation for feeling "furry"; if it exists (which spiritually these ideas do) then it is natural (or else it wouldn't exist).
Now i'm putting that bluntly so dont pester me about it ^^
edit: this means I have no interest in actually turning into a furry, thats impossible.......and wierd

I don't know, that's kind of splitting hairs. Any "sex change operation" is purely cosmetic. They're not actually giving women Y chromosomes and taking them out of men. People that get animal kidney transplants and facial reconstruction are not anthropomorphs therefore, people that get reconstruction and inject hormones are not actually changing sex, right.
 
You don't have a split personality. It's just a fantasy you want to have so badly that your brain creates it with your imagination. Now you're just deluding yourself into thinking you have this "Nomeko" inside of you.

Sorry, man, but that's all it is. You're subconsciously making this up to fulfill your fantasies. A lot of people have done it...but as kids. You can't life a realistic life like that. You have to let it go.

Furry is not a spiritual thing. It's not a way of life. It's an interest, and at most, a fetish. We all have to live reality. Very few of us really like it, but we still do it, because, well, it's life.

1: Autism is NOT a disease it is a disorder. If it were a disease we would all be able to catch it.

2: Either brush up on you spelling, or use spell checker, jesus I thought my spelling was bed.

COUNTERPOINT!

Opinion!

I found your description of furry to be quite interesting, and mirrors some views of my own. Whether or not this is entirely normal is not up for debate. It's not. It's strange, and many would consider this to be an escape from reality. It may be.

One thing I don't like is your description of autism as a disease. I have known many, good, autistic people, and it's simply a different way of brain organization. I like to think of it as walking a line between reality and...something else. Maybe something more, which is what I like to think.

And something else I think...people need to be a little more tolerant. There are days when I am ashamed to call myself human. My issues with the human race as a whole are not part of this, but...you don't have to support him, people, but for goodness sake, don't tar and feather the poor guy. He opened his soul, and this is what he gets? *shakes head*

I do support you, though. Hope you find happiness.
 
It's a interest, hobby or fetish. Nothing really more, while you can enjoy them all you can.

Just don't live life in reality destroying yourself over something so trivial.
