This is an archive small in content, but grand in relevence to serious artists and serious fans. These articles are nearly a decade old, and I remember reading them around the time I was first getting into the online anthro scene. With the amount of newcomers to the fandom finding their way to FA, in my opinion, something like this ought to be required reading.

Nine years ago, folks. And it seems like little has changed. It'd be great if there was something like this, but more current, not that it doesn't still apply.

This... isn't really appropriate for this forum, and would probably fit best over in Rants and Raves, because I can sense this happening in this thread very quickly.

Hi

I'm Druox

The Furrinator

I am shy outside of school/costume

I have a girlfriend

She lives far away

I make music with my guitar

I like to think I'm nice, I try to avoid fights

I am not human...don't call me human...I've done things to myself you couldn't even imagine to not be human....

I am very lonely.....

Please comment my songs, it makes me feel better about myself....

I hate myself...but I love my music

That's all, please enjoy my music ^^

Well, you certainly put your money where your mouth is as far as broadcasting what makes furries who they are. The articles I linked to, on the other hand delve into the fandom as a whole and it's relationship to the publishing business, sans emo.

If advising anyone interested in the state of the furry art scene to read some maturely written, non disparging essays is all it takes to cause a flame war, I wash my hands of it. For some reason I was kind of expecting mature content (that isn't porn) to get mature feedback.

Um..that's my profile.....not the things that make me who I am -.-"  What'd you expect, my life story!?  If the site's goal was to explain furries, then it'd be called www.wikifur.com or something...I said be THEMSELVES, not explain why we're different, why do we have to? Are people really that interested? I make music, that's my art, you need to try looking at the right things before you start shoving your foot into your mouth ;)

Eh, I like to think otherwise, besides, it'd explain why i'm 100% different from every other person on this god-forsaken planet.  Think of it as temporary reason...unless you wanna call me perfect XD

I'd like to take just a moment of your time to remind you that, well... You're dealing with the furry fandom.

They get wigged out when someone else presents a character that even uses the same colour pattern as they do. :p




Just my two bucks on the subject, though. <:)

That article proves I'm not human actually...

My mind's too complex to be categorized as human.  (for those who didn't understand that: Complexity doesn't mean smart, it means difficult to figure out) I will never be able to be put into a label because I behave so adversely.  Humans, however, are the most predictable of all animals and are put into groups to make them more exciting. ^^

Must... not... insult.



You're human.
Get over it. Get over yourself.

You don't know that, or me for that matter. Your opinion matters not, insult all you want ^^ Your mute crys would fall on deaf ears ;) "Get over yourself."

(ed./u2k): Meanwhile; back over on the original post...

(...worth a try at least once, since that isn't of zero value, IMO)

Since you brought it up, wikifur has always struck me as having the following purposes:

-pimp furry sites
-pimp cons
-pimp works that furries like
-pimp famous / infamous furry artists
-pimp famous / infamous furries even if their only contribution to the fandom is drama
-extensively chronicle said drama, with actual chat logs and LJ links if possible
-compile exhaustive documentation of the various fetishes and subgroups of furrydom
-document instances of fursection

Wikifurs standards (or lack thereof) are atrocious for anything trying to pass itself off as a serious attempt at "explaining furry", if that's even what its agenda is. Maybe it's the nature of the beast, I don't know, since it is for furries, by furries, but hopefully no one expects a fully un-tainted look at the fandom from an obviously pro-furry source. It'd be like going to a site called Soviet Wikistan expecting unbiased literature about Communism.

I'm not going to bother trying to explain to you why FALF is a good read anymore. You can talk about how your brain is too complex to be human, but it's obviously not too complex to be butt-fuck ignorant. By the way, the furry label might be tough to fight for some people, but the human label is indellible. Way back a long time ago, (probably in 1994, way before Dave Chappelle had two kiiiddss!) two humans copulated and, for better or worse, you resulted. Despite their equally complex brains which no one else in the world understands, they were human, making you human.

As for trying to explain furries... I don't know. It's like trying to explain why the dead return to life in George Romero's zombie films. Maybe it was caused by space radiation, maybe an airborn virus. Maybe there's no more room in hell, and we've been visited by a curse from da creator mon. Maybe us mundanes are just pretending we're not doomed to be them. Maybe they really are just us. But at the end of the day, it doesn't matter. They're there, and we've got to survive. Somebody's got to survive.

Still no, and would you all come up with something better to do than beat this dead-horse of an issue? Just shut up and go be self-righteous to someone who'll validate your opinions -.-"

Sorry, "immature, ignorant, self-congratulatory brat" isn't a species. It's a kind of behavior that could be classed as human behavior. You're a human.

You share 99.9+% of your DNA with other humans, and you're psychology is as human as your body. You've adopted much of your surrounding culture's conventions, including language (poorly), etiquette, values, common knowledge, etc. You're not unique.

In case you forgot, this thread isn't entitled "Druox's humanity: myth or fo rizzle?"

This thread is here to redirect all of our precious attention spans towards that one site... I checked it out but got bored as soon as I saw the main page...

And humanity is such a crazy thing, I can understand anyone wanting to break away from it as much as they can..

I'm kind of surprised at 1) the ceaseless attempts to drag Mr. DruoxTheFurrinator back to baseline reality, and 2) the ability of the human mind to unquestioningly believe stupid things.

WHOOPS. (clearly I must have meant 'hy00man'; you dirty mundanes should stop picking on the poor furry)

Oh right, and I'm not so much interested in "funny animals" as I am in weird transhumanist transformation, sorry.
 
This really does seem pointless. *loses both interest and SAN points* There goes the smartass comment I was gonna make...oh well, nevermind.

uhmmm.......kay........

A Test! I demand A Test!

Just cuz you're different doesn't mean you're not human. I live in a sports and athlete crazed town where most of the people love mammals and being farmers and I'm interested in Arts and Science with a bit of Giant Isopod and Lizard, but does that make me a Hybrid Reptilian/Human alien? no not rly...

and just because humans are predictable doesn't mean we can put them down.

...Behave adversely? o.=.0 does that mean that you have eaten insects or other weird things that seem taboo, or do you circle in fields at night? I've seen weirder.

Complexity of the mind? Are you talking about Thinking In Brainstorming? 'cause that causes me to make a lot of non-sequitors...but...eh I don't listen to the conversation anyway XD.

huuh...weird...

I'm not human either. I'm an elf. I've got mystic elf powers.

Like making toys and really bitchin' cookies.

AHAHAHAHAH. OH LAWD. Look who's talking.

Don't mock, his brain is far too complex and 'speshul' for us predictable, mundane hyoomans to comprehend.
