If someone over the internet "insults" you, log off. Simple as that. Or leave the fucking site. Block them. What you need is so have a thicker skin. If a word over the internet gets your panties in a bunch, I can't imagine how you'd fare over at 4chan.

NO ONE is forcing you to read what ((((abuse)))) over the internet you're getting. NO ONE is forcing you to not block the person throwing crap at you. NO ONE is forcing you to stay online.

Lets say someone calls you a zoophile. What course of action do you take?
1. Stay and argue with the fuck
2. Block him/her and move on, knowing full well it's a bullshit claim anyway, that's entirely untrue about you as a person

If someone "insults" you in real life, ignore them. Worst case scenario, tell them to fuck off. If they get aggressive and intend to punch, defend yourself, and defend yourself only. It's pointless to escalate things further. You didn't start the fight, but you sure as fuck are going to finish it.

This generation is too pussified, and it's annoying to watch. The world isn't against you. You're just weak-minded. I'm embarrassed to be part of this generation..

@AustinB Also: I am still not seeing my "None: I can't be insulted" option. :p

I think the biggest thing is when you go back to the idea that the largest part of the country that views gay porn the most, the most drug use, and the most teenage pregnancies is where they claim to be supreme followers of Christ.
It was so funny when I was in Vegas and saw someone wearing a Christian tshirt. I mean wear whatever of course but don't judge someone because they sin differently than you.
I wonder how many hate crimes are committed because they are secretly attracted to it and can't deal with that.
It's ok, it's our job to bring more to the table and let people know it's ok to be who you are.

The oldest one was when i posted at it just bugs me which is part of tvtropes. Used a furry pic as a avatar had few users go furfag and one former mod who nobody really liked going oh god.

But its fully okay harass me over not lking anime and giving out fake ban's over god knows what.

Nowadays no one should insult a person for being a furry or a brony or a Whovian (Dr Who fan) or anime fan or Trekkie or Star Wars nerd or any geek culture.

Haha, yeah. The TVTropes forums are a bit of a mess. I never really got the UI to start, but I've heard a few horror stories.

The whole thing was a shitshow i had a mod go around saying i was a troll who then PM'ed my ban was made up. Had a few users giving PM's of saying they talked to the same mod because of him ignoring me and they would tell me too fuck off after i found out they never talked too him???. Had few goon reject's tell the music hearld to spy(fake being pals) on me all because they thought i was faking being a fur and told him get lost after i caught on.

All that because my dyspraxia(also autistic/ADHD) made my posts look like shit because PS3 broswer would crash if i tried to edit posts with shit typing & because i showed i was furry when bored of having anime shoved down my throat anime fanboy's.

Read crazygogg's channel on how the userbase are just a mix of neckbeards, total creep's & socially stunted teen's who love bragging how there mildly autstic.

What if furries and bronies go mainstream like anime fans and all?

They just pretend they never hated us, that pretty much happend to gaming and anime when they went mainstream. Heck furries are already semi-mainstream since any trolling are either dumb teens or just worthless moron's who think it's still 1998 - 2006.

Well teens grow up and stuff to maturity

I personally have never been directly insulted. I keep all my furry stuff to my self, and to small Internet groups that enjoy this type of stuff. Most of the time, when I'll draw or write a story featuring an anthro character, people applaud me for writing a cool story/drawing a nice picture. I think you as a person can control what exactly insults you. If someone yelling "furries are gay" on the streets personally offends you, I think that's a problem with yourself rather than with society tbh..

Only a few times, and always by other furries. IRL a lot of friends know of my 'hobby', and either find it interesting, amusing, or whimsical.

Oddly, the worst experiences I ever had as a furry were on the 'old' FA forums, before they imploded, and came back: never have I seen such a cesspool of trolling, bitterness and bad vibes as the old version of this forum, which I am happy to see gone...so, aside from that, I've never have had any problems, online or off, in my decade of furriness.

Countless times on Reddit, You know the userbase is shit when its okay. For someone with maturity of a 14 year old go on were freaks & then downvote me calling out there BS. The worst was when people were having toddler meltdown's over two furry sub's picked on sub of the day then went to SRD to cry about it.

My standard answer when I'm asked if I'm furry is "yes, and proud of it too - just don't tell anybody, okay?"

I get eye rolls, but that's about it. That said, only people close to me really know. It's not something I advertise (I'm a pretty shy person in general) but some people close to me know. Honestly, it's not all that bad for me, but there's definitely still a stigma.

you have been booped by the web potater foxxo
Don't really tell people unless they ask. Face to face,nnobody would normally say "You're disgusting."
Online,mif you go around saying you're a fur, probably going to recieve what you'd expect, hate.
Since I don't do the latter, not much
 
Never. I admit I've had some of my anthro related art get a weird look from family if and when they see it. But aside from that I don't think anyone IRL knows I consider myself one. That's the wonderful power of discretion.

After reading through this thread.. it's sad to see the state of humanity.. I keep hoping one day most of society will wake up, and everyone will just not give a fuck what someone else does, unless there is direct physical harm... It's sad to see the immaturity among fellow humans.. Perhaps like i just said, in time, maybe people will just not care, and let people live.. It's always hard to figure out who you can talk with and who you can't.. ;)

I'm always supportive of someones hobbies, interests, or sexuality.. Perhaps call me a rare person, but I just don't care what you like, who you are, or what you choose to be.. As long as you enjoy your life, not pushing your ideas or beliefs on me, causing physical harm to someone, or insulating me for not liking the same stuff, I'll give 100% respect on how you live your life!
I do care about and enjoy a good conversation with someone, and I will be supportive! I enjoy listening to others as long as they are willing to listen to me, and not shit on what I share.. Ever so often I'll have a conversation with someone and take interest in anything they want to share, but as soon as I mention something, they're all "that's weird".. so then I just excuse myself from that person; mental blacklist, lol..

I've only been interested in this fandom for a little over a year now, and from what I've seen.. the community seems to be fairly friendly! The wrong forums or Facebook pages can be annoying at times with repetitive Yiff crap.. but I've managed to find a few good ones!

I'm sure I'll have more fun with fellow furs if I can figure out where they are hiding at around Oregon, hehe :p

Whenever I look in the mirror. :rolleyes:

But seriously, I rarely call myself a furry IRL (I'm not big on labels in general), so this doesn't happen.

I've had more death threats than insults, and a numerous amount of both, but they're mostly from older adults surprisingly.
