Honestly, if you don’t want to tell them, don’t tell them. If you do, then tell them.I am still new to the furry community and I am trying to figure out how open I should be about being a furry to my friends, family, and coworkers. Currently, I am an undergrad studying Elementary Education and I will be graduating in May and starting my Master's in the next fall. I doubt my family would care all that much, but I am terrified how it could affect my career. Teachers have zero private life and if the administration or a parent doesn't like what you do outside of school, you could kiss your job goodbye. There are so many misconceptions about the furry community and I worry that they could damage my reputation as an educator. I am a very open person and I hate the idea of keeping something I love private, especially something so harmless. Are there any furries here who are teachers who can speak to this? I am just at a loss and really could use some guidance. TYIA.
