RE: How did you find out you were a furry?

For me it was a slow realization. For the longest time I referred to myself as "fur-curious".

Around about maybe the beginning of this year I just said "Fuck it, I'm a furry! Whee! Yiff me!"

RE: How did you find out you were a furry?

Well, I've been a furry all my life, just never knew the term for it. From being a child, to this day, I've always preferred the video games that have "creatures" in it instead of just boring human characters, always loved drawing animals and human-like animals, played with stuffed animals instead of Barbies, my first username ever online was "Kassie Cat", etc.
It was a few years ago when I learned the term anthropomorphic, and even then, I just liked drawing anthros and that was it. Now, earlier this year, I finally learned of the actual furry subculture/interest/whatever, but at first it sorta freaked me out. Of course, all I heard at first was all the stuff about yiffing and sex in fursuits, things like that.
After a few months, I softened to the ideas since I learned more about the truth than the rumors. Now it weirds me out how much I feel like I belong (to some aspects) sometimes.

RE: How did you find out you were a furry?

Like many others I have been interested in furry cartoon characters for as long as I can remember and I have long felt a spiritual connection to wolves and hawks, but had no idea what a furry was. Last year I was looking for pics of cat girls and came across some literature on the furry fandom. After reading a few of these I thought “sounds like me” and decided to fined a forum and learn more. It was around this time that I started having the dreams I described in this thread ( http://www.furaffinityforums.net/showthread.php?tid=10181 ) and I based my furson on the winged werewolf ronin I am in the dreams (which I’m still having by the way). I joined a forum but then got a job that kept me out of town a lot so I didn’t have time for it, when I did have time I had lost the link and in searching for it again I found this sight and hear I am.

RE: How did you find out you were a furry?

Well... personally i've been drawing animals and anthros ever since I was a kid. And I barely played with dolls - I had an obsession for plushies, soft toys and such. Always when I played, I preferred being 'animalistic' - if that is the right term to use XD
Me and a friend of mine got even more in to it, due being huge fans of The Lion King back there.
And well... around 1999 when I began to surf more around the net, I discovered there are more than just TLK fansom(s) - and... well....

Almost as if I was grown up to be one, without even realizing it.

I don't really consider myself a furry as I'm happy just being me. But my girlfriends brought me into the furry fandom. I have a fursona, but it's in memory of my dog that passed away and no other animal felt right to me. They on the other hand are full fledged furries

Funny thing is, tonight we were out on the town and they said "Why do you have people draw you furry? You know, just because you have a fursona doesn't mean your a furry..." I laughed.

RE: How did you find out you were a furry?

I saw something about it on TV and promptly forgot about it. About two years later I ran across VCL and I've been a furry every since.

RE: How did you find out you were a furry?

Came to the realization randomly, when I discovered I found them anthros 'hawt'. StarFox, I believe, started it for me. No, it wasn't Krystal that made me furry. >.> <.< >.> *Why'd they make Fox and Wolf so cool? XD*
 
RE: How did you find out you were a furry?

I think The Sonic games got me into it first. Everyone was talking about these awsome shootout characters, which I liked too but whenever I got asked who my favorite video game character was I said Sonic. I thought it would be awsome to be a fox or something, but I didnt really know I was a "Furry" until I accidently came across a Amy/Rouge picture. I was like, What the hell? I went to see what catagory the picture was in and I ran into the greatest treasure ever. Anthro girls flooded the screen, and I got the feeling in my stomach that you would get sneaking up to play video games when you were ten, only even better.

Is this thread title a joke? You dont 'find out' that you're furry, it's not like being gay or ambidexturous or whatever. It's a hobby. And it shouldn't be 'life'. Because, well...that's just really depressing.

Perhaps a better title for this thread would have been " How did you become interested in furry?"

Thankyou for the suggestion.

I didn't mean to offend any one. I’m new at this and I will try to word my questions properly in the future.
 
Yeah. Porn did it. >>;
I fapped and I was like "Hey, this stuff is nice"
and errm. Kitfox pointed me here after an 'encounter' So...
^.^ it was like a few months ago..maybe two.
 
I always felt more at home with animals then people. I've always drawn anthromorphic characters and I always wanted to be an animal. Ergo I've always been a furry, I just didn't know what a furry was until I saw that CSI episode 'Fur and Loathing in Las Vegas'. Then I discovered this site from Deviant Art due to Mayu's pokemon art contest, then I saw Ninjaweasel's art and desided to stay. Also I saw anthroporn, wacked off, and once again I knew I was on to somethin' great so here I stay.

Even though I only draw anthromorphic animals and have little interest in the pr0nz I still like to call myself a furry.
My interest on anthros probably was disney's fault. Movies like Lion king, jungle book, beauty and the beast, robin hood etc. can really have an effect on you xD

oh no....OH NO! D:
HHmm...I was always fascinated with animals as a kid. And yeah I was always interested about what animal would represent me the best and I thought it would be dolphins because I got to interact with one in Hawaii. XD

Then my friends told me about DA so I joined and saw some furry art and was amazed. So the art and movies have really sucked me into the fandom. ^^
 
WEll,

I baceame a furry about a year after i befame a Fox McCloud Fan (big surprise there). I leadrned that there was this thing called the furfandom, and i started to think. I thought a lot. I didn't just like animals, i felt like on- scince i was born. I acted like one. My memories of my life (yeah, short term memory loss takes a lot of that away) started to rush back, and it made sense! I liked fox mccloud, the disney movie robin hood, the fox and the hound, and anything else i'd ever seen with foxes- its because i wanted to be one! Because i had the personality of one! It might seem like i wrote this 'just to do so', but i mean it- the day i turned 15 i FELT the connection whack me in the face like a truck- and i joined the fandom.

Yeah, always been more comfortable with animals. Grew up on a farm/ranch in northwest Nebraska ("Chosen Land of Crazy Horse") and became familiar with Native American spirituality, which led to Celtic shaminism, etc. It wasn't so much that I AM an animal, but that I am guided and influenced by them . . . .

I became interested in "furry," as such, when I discovered that there was a network of people who were interested in more than just Dizney porn. (Nala porn is still on the list, but farther down than it used to be . . ;) . . ) Furrydom seems cool to me because it has much in common with that shamans path, is generally very welcoming and friendly, and is very helpful for someone such as myself who tends to take things far too seriously :p

Back in the day I used to draw myself as a cat creature. . . This goes way back. . .

Not until I was 16 did I discover the fandom and fall in love with it's principles. :3

I'm 18 years old now, have loved every second of the membership. :D

I think it's always been there to some degree. I might not be the furriest of furs but I have a furry heart. *sounds so lame* Though I really enjoy furry artwork A LOT, I don't draw it as much as some do, and my chars are usually more human but with animal characteristics. Not "catgirls" though XD

I'm 23 and I like pineapples.
