sadly only VERY select friends of mine know, my family is super strict and would throw me to the curve if they found out, i tried to be public with it once and had to transfer schools due to how people treated me.

they always called me many names to the point i started walking out of class from some teachers harassing me which eventually led to me getting transferred, i will never make that mistake again :(

....Ouch

Well, If someone asks me, I would tell 'em. Nobody has asked me, even when I accidentaly gave 'hints' that im one to some friends. I remember a xbox friend always teasing me with gay messages like "I <3 you" and things like that and one time I responded "Just go to yiff another one XD" and he laughed, but never asked anything.

People are pretty chill around where I live (hell, one of my friend's (also a furry) mothers even offered to go with him to FE next year to buy him porn LOL), so it's pretty easy to tell them. I've actually got a few friends who are also furries, though a couple take it a bit too far (not far enough to start being living stereotypes though). Parents were a little wary at first but they don't seem to care much anymore.

Wait. So there are parents out there that buy porn for their children? They actually exist?

As well as the parents who buy violent films and videogames that depict torture and murder, but for some reason that's socially acceptable but god forbid a 16 year old to masturbate.

From what i see, it just seems that sex and anything related to it is considered more taboo, and spoken about less.

I voted only family and friends. While my family doesn't know details, they know I like furry art since I have an art print on my wall. The only ones who know the extent of my furryness would be my close friends. In general, I don't do much to give it away so only those who know me personally have any idea.

Yep. I've met her too -- she's pretty laid-back as a person.

It really nterests me to know how else a parents like that are. The only time I saw a mother that was really liberal about that stuff im front of their kids was the parent of a good friend of mine, but his older sister was gay I think, so it made a little more sense.
